Chalet
This secluded, extra-comfortable and carefully maintained self-catering chalet — a perfect refuge in summer and winter alike — is hidden away in a corner of one of Cornwall’s most unspoiled and beautiful areas, the Roseland Peninsula, bordered on one side by the famous sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, on the other by the English Channel. The chalet offers a spacious, triple-aspect living/dining room with French doors giving onto a full-width west-facing verandah (just perfect for that evening drink), a well-equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, including one en suite, and two bedrooms — a double-bedded master bedroom, and a second bedroom with two single bunks (there is also a drop-down double bed in the living/dining room, cunningly disguised as a bookcase!) With state-of-the-art insulat...This secluded, extra-comfortable and carefully maintained self-catering chalet — a perfect refuge in summer and winter alike — is hidden away in a corner of one of Cornwall’s most unspoiled and beautiful areas, the Roseland Peninsula, bordered on one side by the famous sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, on the other by the English Channel. The chalet offers a spacious, triple-aspect living/dining room with French doors giving onto a full-width west-facing verandah (just perfect for that evening drink), a well-equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, including one en suite, and two bedrooms — a double-bedded master bedroom, and a second bedroom with two single bunks (there is also a drop-down double bed in the living/dining room, cunningly disguised as a bookcase!) With state-of-the-art insulation in walls, floors and ceilings, the chalet is cool in summer and exceptionally snug in winter (when the thermostatic panel heaters also come into their own). At the front there is a south facing dining patio. Set amongst lawns and trees at the very narrowest point of the peninsula, with spectacular views over woods and farmland, the chalet (one of just five on the site) is 400 metres from a wonderful but little-known sandy beach on one side, and 100 metres from a picture-book winding creek and its tidal estuary on the other. It offers perfect peace — but also proximity to a unique range of attractions, not least the astonishing Eden Project. There are some excellent country inns in the vicinity — and a superb 7-day village shop in Portscatho, just over a mile away, which also offers other useful amenities such as a GP practice with its own dispensary, a pub, and even a butcher’s shop. Besides yourself and your belongings you need only bring kitchen/bathroom consumables, and linen for the bedroom duvets and pillow case covers. PLEASE NOTE Covid 19 Update: Until the virus subsides we are asking guests to bring their own pillows and duvets as well as their own sheets, duvet covers, pillow case covers and other laundry. In season there is a Weber charcoal barbecue unit which is situated beside the front patio.More

About the neighbourhood
Rightly designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Roseland offers a magnificent unspoiled landscape of woods, fields and lanes girdled by a shoreline of coves, cliffs and sandy beaches made easily accessible by the famous South West Coastal Path. There are special treasures here like the round houses at Veryan, the uniquely beautiful waterside church of St. Just-in-Roseland with its sub-tropical churchyard, the ancient King Harry Ferry — and a goodly sprinkling of fine country inns offering tasty food. The quaint conjoined villages of Portscatho and Gerrans are an easy walk away along a bridleway or along the SW Coastal Path. A little further afield are the towns of Falmouth and Truro — the bustling Bohemian port and the graceful county capital (bring your own boat and you ca...
