Stay:

The Rosevine, Portscatho Cornwall

Location:

The Rosevine is a cosy and intimate place to stay in Cornwall, with beautiful sea views overlooking Gerrans Bay nr Portscatho, and about 4 miles from St Mawes. This part Georgian house is set in 2 acres of wooded gardens for the kids to play in and is just a short stroll from a safe sandy beach. The Roseland is totally unspoiled, and there’s lots to explore nearby. We are just four miles from St Mawes, close to the coastal footpath and a stone’s throw from some of the best sailing waters.

Accommodation:

The house has been completely renovated, and is now relaxed and family friendly, with 12 suites/mini apartments which sleep from 2 adults and one child through to 2 adults and 3 children.

Tim and Hazel Brocklebank wanted to create somewhere to stay which offers accommodation which is self contained, yet also has the additional facilities of a really good “hotel”. So, the ground floor of the house has a large drawing room with wood burning stove, a playroom with large screen tv, x box and toy cupboard full of toys and games for all ages, a Morning and Dining room, and an indoor pool.

There is a small team of professional staff on hand who combine informality and great hosting, but you choose how much you look after yourself or be looked after. Painted with traditional colours, the rooms are filled with a mix of old and restored French pieces, which nestle up against more modern finds. Most suites have sea views and large French doors, which open out onto a private terrace or balcony.

Children have cosy separate sleeping areas, with either twin beds or New England bunks from Aspace. All suites have a sitting/dining area with discreet mini kitchen facilities, which include kettle, toaster, fridge, dishwasher, and combi oven/microwave, for rustling up simple meals. However, if cooking is definitely not on the cards for you, then house chefs prepare delicious rustic style food, served in the sunny morning room and adjoining dining room on most days from mid morning through until supper, including a children’s high tea.

You can combine self catering with the food service available, and choose to eat downstairs as little or as often as you like. There is also a “deli” service where you can order prepared dishes, and other items such as milk, bread, pots of home made jam, breakfast cereals, locally cured meats, snack boxes and wine from the house selection.

Facilities:

Downstairs is the Den which has a large screen tv, x-box, and a toy cupboard stocked with toys and games for all ages. The house also has wireless internet access, an indoor swimming pool with changing room and shower, and a handy guest laundry and boot room.
