Villages

St Mawes Cornwall

St Mawes lies nestled at the very tip of the Roseland Peninsula, a beautiful traditional fishing village, St Mawes has many charms. Quaint winding roads leading to another gem of a view, wonderful rolling farmland down to the crystal cornish sea, stunning historic buildings and nearly always somewhere to find a warming cup of tea or proper pint of the finest cornish ale.

Nestled on the Roseland Penninsular is this fine village. The sloping hill down to the waters edge gives nearly all of Portscatho un-interrupted wonderful breathtaking views of the Cornish coast. Benefiting of this high vantage point you can see for miles upon miles the ragged and stunning coastline.

Tregony is repeatedly called the Gateway to the Roseland for obvious reasons as its the first village you'll come to when approaching the Roseland. A linear village, Tregony has a population of about 1000 and is close to both Truro and St Austell. The village was once known as a town and surprisingly was once home to a small port.

Veryan is a lovely village on the Roseland Peninsula popular with visitors year round. The local pub, The New Inn' offers a warm welcome with fine food and drink. Veryan has a number of great beaches nearby, including Carne Beach, Pendower Beach, East & West Portholland Beaches.

If you're lucky enough to stumble upon this treasure of a village you could find yourselves in the company of many a famous star. Our very own Prime Minister Mr David Cameron, Comedienne Catherine Tate, T.V favorite Dawn French and music artists Morrissey and Will Young have all frequented Portloe village.

Mevagissey is just outside of the Roseland Peninsula and is a great place to stay and visit. Life still revolves around the harbour and Mevagissey has a strong fishing fleet that’s been around for hundreds of years. There's plenty of things to see and do and enough pubs and restaurants to keep any gastronome busy for a while!

Roseland Inn Cornwall

When leaving the King Harry Ferry, Roseland side, take the second left- travel for about 2 miles and you'll stumble upon the fantastic 16th century inn appropiately named The Roseland Inn. For those of you like me who can't bear the new flim flam redecorated style of today's pubs trying to look old, this place is definately a must.

Probus Cornwall

Probus is just of the A390 and close to St Austell with bus links to both St Austell and Truro. The village has a fantastic 18th century pub on the fore street, The Hawkins Arms, which is a St Austell Brewery Pub.

Gorran Haven

Gorran Haven is a fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is situated approximately 2 miles south of Mevagissey.

The village lies in a cove between two sandy beaches. Vault Beach, also known as Bow beach, is south of Gorran Haven and Great Perhaver Beach is to the north.

Gerrans Cornwall

Gerrans and Portscatho are effectively joined as the two villages have slowly grown over the years. The Church Spire at Gerrans, can be seen from miles away. The local pub is the Royal Standard.

Bohortha Roseland Peninsula

Driving through Gerrans at the top of Portscatho you'll stumble upon Bohortha, a small hamlet on the top of a hill with some of the most breathtaking views of St Mawes and the surronding Roseland. Just a handful of houses with a resident farm it wouldn't hurt to stop the car and get out for a look.
