Roseland Peninsula – Cornwall
Bosinver lies near the south coast of Cornwall – it’s the softer side with picturesque harbours and quaint little fishing villages, looking out to the English Channel, rather than the rugged and wilder North Cornwall coast with majestic surf whipped up by distant Atlantic storms. Within 20 minutes’ drive you will find dreamy golden beaches with easy parking, rock pools and space for the children to run around. Our local favourites are Porthpean, Pentewan and Porthluney.
The beautiful and less visited Roseland peninsula is on our doorstep and is a well kept secret. Here you can find vast beaches and hidden coves, quirky eating places like Sam’s on the Beach in an old lifeboat station at Polkerris, the Hidden Hut on Porthcurnick Beach or a posh cream tea in the Tresanton Hotel at St Mawes. The coastal walks here are magnificent and if you manage a visit in the spring, the abundant wild flowers in the fields and hedgerows will take your breath away. No visit would be complete without a trip on the water. You can go fishing, hire your own motor boat, paddle a canoe or just take a speedboat ride from the picture book harbours of Fowey and Mevagissey, which both specialise in fresh seafood served in their local restaurants.
Bosinver is situated between the popular attractions of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan which are open all year round. We know that Cornwall is very busy in the school holidays but our mild climate means that it is warm all year round and Spring and Autumn breaks are a brilliant way to explore the county without the crowds – nothing better than a cliff top walk followed by diving into a pub to warm up by a roaring log fire!
Don’t forget that Cornwall is a small county. You can drive from the north coast to the south is half an hour and from here to Land’s End or Plymouth in an hour. Nowhere is far away and with a wealth of magnificent scenery, interesting history and wonderful gardens and attractions to visit, you are guaranteed to want to return!
