About Mrs Elizabeth Aarvold

Roswidden has been in our family since the 1920's and four generations (so far) have enjoyed their holidays there.

After a long drive from the South-east, the view and sea air puts an immediate smile on your face and sets the tone for the holiday; it is a glorious place. As one local of the bay says; 'I know what Heaven is - I've lived here!'

We all love to get down as often as we can what-ever time of the year for our 'cornish fix'.

Mrs Elizabeth Aarvold purchased this house in 1980

Why Mrs Elizabeth Aarvold chose Saint Merryn

We bought Roswidden after our Aunt died in the early 1980's. She owned it since the 1920's and we often visited her there. The beauty of North Cornwall gets into your blood and we all love going down there - it made the decision to obtain Roswidden compelling.

We never tire of the view; at different times of the day it is always changing. We love the smell of the ozone when you walk out on the patio in the early morning with the cry of the seagulls - then a surf and a jog or walk on the deserted beach is a daily ritual.

But the best thing of all is going to sleep at night, exhausted from a full days activity, with the sound of the crashing waves on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Roswidden has a glorious feel to it - not too big; not too small, and geared for families to have access to both active and quiet choices. Grand-parents to toddlers are all catered for by the location and facilities.

Even if it rains, the games keep everyone busy, and the views of the ocean, waves in the bay and distant headland remain an attraction with ever-changing moods.

Boredom is not applicable!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all love Roswiden and have had yet again a wonderful holiday. Cant wait to return next year.

This is our most favourite place on earth - the surfing was the best ever this year. We loved riding on the beach.
