Roseland Peninsula Cottages

Like the rest of Cornwall and the South West, there has been an explosion of self catering cottages on the Roseland Peninsula that have become available as holiday lets. The majority of the cottages on the Roseland Peninsula are second homes and the owners let them as holiday lets to help generate some income as well as using the cottages for their own holidays. In line with the increase in self catering cottages, there are now a number of agencies that look after, and let the cottages on behalf of the owners. Most have a large number of cottages on their books, and offer full term stays, short breaks, and late availability offers.

The self catering cottage agencies that are most relevant are the ones that are based on or near The Roseland Peninsula, however there are also national agencies, albeit with fewer local cottages available.

In no particular order, the main agents on and around The Roseland Peninsula are:

Roseland Holidays Cottages
Based in Portscatho, the majority of their properties are situated in Portscatho although they do also have a number of cottages in the outlying villages such as Portloe, St Mawes and Veryan. As of May 2012 Roseland Holiday Cottages has around 90 cottages on their books. Bookings are taken by phone or by downloading a booking form. Established: 1996

Cornwalls Cottages

Cornwalls Cottages has cottages not only on the Roseland Peninsula, but all over Cornwall they have a huge number of properties, many being on the Roseland with loads in St Mawes alone. The Cornwalls Cottages website has comprehensive details about each cottage including video, maps and floor plans. Booking are taken over the phone or via their on-line booking system.

Other notable agencies that cover either the whole county or are national, also have a number of self catering cottages on the Roseland Peninsula.
These include:

Farm and Cottage Holidays - - This agency has a number of cottages in Mevagissey.
Classic Cottages - - Around 25 cottages in Mevagissey and a scattering over the Roseland.

Of course not all holiday cottages on The Roseland Peninsula are managed and let via and agency. There are a huge number that manage their own bookings and promotion via local and national websites. Either way, there are plenty to choose from!
