About the property

Cottage in Lamorna, Penzance, Nr Lands End, Cornwall, England - Hidden Away, Yet Close To Both Penzance And St Ives, And To Beautiful Sandy Beaches And Coves.

Rosemerryn Cottage is situated within the 7 acre grounds of Rosemerryn Wood. Sharing the wood is a 2000 year old cave or temple, the Boleigh Fogou, which was once part of an iron-age settlement; just one of numerous such Ancient Celtic Sites to be found in the far west of Cornwall. Although the cottage has its own garden, guests are welcome to wander through all of Rosemerryn’s gardens and woodland, and of course to visit the Fogou. A well-worn path through the wood provides a short cut to the local pub, The Lamorna Wink, and on, to the cove, where there is a small shop and a café. The cottage has an open fire and central heating so is cosy in winter as well as being a perfect base for summer holidays. Having two bedrooms it is perfect for two couples, or for a family of up to six if using the sofa bed, and/or the rollaway bed. We can also provide a high chair and cot.

We loved Rosemerryn Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved Rosemerryn Cottage. We arrived early as we had travelled through the night from Essex. Despite this we found the keys in the door and a warm cozy cottage. The lovely cake was a welcome surprise and didnt last long.

The cottage had everything we needed and more. We all loved hearing the sound of the river from the garden, and the variety of birds we spotted. It was lovely to let our kids be kids and play and explore these wonderful surroundings. We really enjoyed some nearby walks.

We slept well, the beds were comfy and loved the aga in the kitchen.

We had a walk to the Lamorna Wink and would recommend their Sunday roast.

The location was a convenient base for visiting local places like Lands End, Mousehole, St michaels mount, sennen cove and the Minack Theatre.

We will definetely be back again.

Cosy & nostalgic in superb setting!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving rather late at night we immediately found this charming cottage cosy and welcoming. Thanks to the excellent directions it was an easy find despite it's somewhat hidden location, and we were immediately taken by the cottage's "look and feel".

A warm welcome was appreciated, signaled by little details such as the cottage being nicely warm on this somewhat chilly September night, the welcome cake & wine, the lights switched on to help finding it in the dark etc.

The interior ha a nice nostalgic touch in every detail, but it always is "just there", nothing appears to have been just decorated on purpose. Unlike in many other cottages of this type nowadays where you feel that some furniture might better suit a museum or national trust property, Rosemerryn always keeps the impression of everything in there has simply been kept as it has always been, and tasteful additions or replacements have only been made when appropriate.

The garden, or rather the grounds around the cottage are marvelous, with woodland, a stream and even a small pre-historic cave. The kids thus had the best adventure playground one could think of, and last not least they found a great new friend in Finigan, the owner's dog.

As much as there is to see and experience in this glorious corner of Cornwall, from the nearby sea in walking distance to high-end attractions like St. michael's Mount - it was always a pleasure to return to Rosemerryn cottage in the evenings!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Rosemerryn Cottage. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to help make your stay in this special part of Cornwall such a wonderful experience. Finnigan was entertained by the children as much as they were by him.

Our Shamanic Tango retreat at the Rosemerryn was absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Rosemerryn is a true gem of the West Penwith. The house and the gardens are obviously cared for and are kept immaculately. However, nothing is overdone, and everything feels in natural harmony with everything else. Laura and Rob, the owners, are helpful, supportive and caring as well as totally unobtrusive. I warm heartily recommend a stay in this beautiful place.

A twenty minute walk from Lamorna cove where there is a small beach, a cafe, a shop and canoe/paddleboat rentals. The coastal path can be picked up from here too; and hour's walk east will take you to Mousehole; turn west and you will walk beautiful cliff paths towards St Loy, Penberth and Treen. The beaches at Treen (Pedne), Porthcurno, St Levan (Porthchapel) and Sennen are 10-15 mins drive away, while the beaches at St Ives and Hayle are half an hour by car.


Newquay, an hour's drive away, is the nearest aeroport.

The port of Plymouth is one and half hours drive away.

Penzance station, with direct services to London (including a nightly sleeper), Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh, is 4 miles away.

A car is useful in Penwith, but the bus from Penzance to Land's End passes the end of the drive, so it is possible to manage without.


The closest grocery shop and post office are at St Buryan, two and half miles away. Land's End is 7 miles, St Just 6 miles, Newlyn 3 miles, Penzance 4 miles and St Ives about 12 miles away. Just beyond St Just are the Geevor Visitor Centre and Levant Mine, both giving a fascinating history of Tin mining in Penwith. There are art galleries and gardens in Newlyn and Penzance, and the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden as well as numerous private galleries in St Ives.

Further Details:

There is a dive school in Penzance and the pier is the starting point for both fishing trips and motorboat excursions to look for ocean wildlife An art school at Newlyn offers short art courses. Lamorna cove is a popular place for scuba diving; there are also canoes and pedalloes for hire there. Sennen and Gwithian beach at Hayle offer fine surfing and both have surf schools for those who need instruction.
