Roseland , Cornwall

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This charming cottage, secluded and comfortable, lies on the edge of the hamlet. It has an attractive garden and wonderful views over the rolling fields towards the sea. It is a perfect base from which to explore this sequestered and fascinating corner of the Roseland peninsula. In the heart of Bohortha, you can find The Old School House, a cosy retreat for two.

The nearby beach of Towan is the perfect spot for those seeking an old fashioned beach holiday. The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes.

Not far away the tip of the Roseland peninsula St Anthony Head offers panoramic views of St Mawes, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads. Or take a closer look at seabirds from the bird hide, including fulmars as they glide across the vertical rock faces. You may also spot shags congregating on the low rock near the lighthouse and grey seals on the rocks at the tide falls.

Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it’s still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Lovely cottage

    The cottage itself was lovely. Perfect furniture/fittings and extremely cosy and warm. Lovely warm bathroom and the cleanliness was first grade - this is really important to me.

    Wonderful location

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented - please thank Annie (whom we met on our way out) for all her hard work! Bohurrow Farm Cottage is in a wonderful location: only a few hundred yards from the coastal path, yet in a private and green garden setting. The villagers in the hamlet are very friendly and welcoming, which was lovely. The cottage has been beautifully restored and furnished (the curtains and blinds are lovely!) and on a cold January night the woodburner made the living room very cosy. We especially loved the booklet written by the former resident of 'White Cottage', telling the story of growing up in the house from the 1950s onwards - it really brought the cottage to life.

    Made enjoyable...

    The location was simply stunning. We had not at all expected this to be so wonderful. The description said sea views, and I gathered this would mean distant sea views but I could actually see the sea when sitting up in bed. The cottage was really pretty and comfortable and cosy and immaculately clean. we had a very warm welcome even though no one was actually there. It was extremely peaceful but still close enough to the little villages surrounding to go and eat out. You could start walks straight away from the cottage, you are in beautiful surroundings as soon as you leave the door. We also very much enjoyed the NT tea-van which was at walking distance from the cottage. I think this must be one of the most beautifully located NT cottages. And although this is sheer luck: we had the most beautiful weather.
