Back to Cornwall after 30 years

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall. The cottage was amazing with every comfort you could ask for a real home from home. Wendy was a superb hostess and welcomed us back as if we had never been away for so long. Just the sort of holiday which would suit all ages. Beaches close by, lovely walks, plenty of bird life for those who bird watch. We can recommend this cottage as a wonderful holiday destination. We will certainly be back.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, Wendy was so friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Very clean everywhere, nice comfy bed and we enjoyed watching the tide coming in and out along the river/estuary. The garden was fantastic for the dog as it was completely enclosed and safe.

Would highly recommend. Cornwall is just stunning. Robin Cottage is a perfect hideaway.

Excellent in every respect

  • 5 of 5

I would not hesitate to recommend Robin Cottage which was immaculate with good quality furnishings, in addition to being very well equipped and everything in as-new condition. The cottage has a beautiful garden.and lovely countryside views. It is situated in a peaceful location ideal for exploring the scenic Roseland Peninsula and visiting the Eden Project/ Lost Gardens of Heligan. The owner is both welcoming and helpful. There is a great pub for meals within a couple of minutes' walk and others within a short drive.We found Robin Cottage to be excellent in every respect.

Our Introduction to Roseland

  • 5 of 5

Robin Cottage provides excellent accommodation and is ideally situated within reach all of the attractive locations of the Roseland Peninsula, be they country walks on footpaths, quiet country lanes, one of many secluded coves or sandy beaches. The stay at Robin Cottage was the first time we had experienced the wonder of the peninsula and we certainly hope to return to Robin Cottage frequently. The immediate surrounding area to the Cottage is peaceful and there is an abundance of wild life.

Ruan Lanihorne is a charming village with an historic church dating from the 14th Century and a superb pub - the King's Head. The area is truly beautiful countryside. Venture across Sett Bridge towards the magnificent Lamorran Woods and you will undoubtedly see an abundance of wildlife with waders and waterfowl inhabiting the tidal marshes. It is a haven for those wanting to explore and get off the beaten track, yet within easy reach of many attractions. An adventurous ride through the woods and you are awarded the delights of Tregothnan Estate, home to the Boscawen family since 1335, complete with teas and honey made on the Estate. Nearby Fentongollan Farm producing module vegetable plants and a fabulous collection of cornish daffodil bulbs.

There is an excellent pub at the nearby village of Philleigh, The Roseland Inn which serves good food. There are also pubs in Veryan, Portloe, Portscatho & St Mawes. There are general stores available at Portscatho, Tregony & Veryan. St Mawes has a wider selection of services. The city of Truro is about a 25 minute drive and has some superb shopping. There are fine dining restaurants in nearby hotels such as the Driftwood Hotel at Rosevine and the Tresanton at St Mawes. The beaches of Pendower, Carne & Porthcurnick are all within a 10 minute drive. The Roseland has some wonderful gardens to visit and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are about 20 minutes away. There are miles of spectacular coastline to discover along the South West Coast Path.
