The Roseland Peninsula has been designated part of Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for the quality of its landscape and unrivalled coastal scenery. Here you will find secluded coves, delightful creeks, wooded countryside, pretty fishing and rural villages, tranquil beaches and scenic cliffs and headlands. All within easy reach of the City of Truro. To make your daytrip even more memorable why not take the historic King Ferry across the River Fal, saving time but also a chance to take in the beautiful scenery of the River Fal.
The Roseland’s principal village in the area, St Mawes, is situated at the southern end of the peninsula. A picturesque harbour with whitewashed houses guarded by Henry VIII’s iconic Castle, St Mawes remains a centre for a wide range of water sports activities. Other villages in the area include the twin villages of Gerrans and Portscatho, Veryan with its famous roundhouses and Portloe with its tiny harbour.
A haven for walkers, wildlife lovers and water sports enthusiast, there is plenty to keep you active. Or, if you prefer just to wind down - enjoy a relaxing day on the beach or a boat trip on the Fal estuary, and round it off with a cream tea in one of the excellent cafés, or a pint in a character pub.
