4 listed cottages on the Roseland peninsular. Dogs welcome. Moorings & dinghy park. - Barton Bothy



Updated: 23-Nov-2016
The cottages sleep 2 and up to 6/9 close to the sea in AONB.

The 4 listed properties of St Anthony in Roseland Cottages are all on the Place estate, on the beautiful Roseland peninsular and within walking distance of each other and the sea. In fact, apart from the 200 yards where the peninsular joins the mainland, the estate is entirely surrounded by the sea.

For groceries and pub, the nearest village is Gerrans, 3 miles up the road. Or, take the Place ferry to St Mawes for more shops and restaurants. This lands at Totties steps, which is easily accessible on foot from all 4 cottages, or park your car at the slipway.

Meadow House, sleeping 6/7 and Barton Bothy, sleeping 4/5, are on the farm and are approached along a drive off the road to St Anthony lighthouse. From both these cottages you can walk straight from the front door to three beaches along private farm track or coastal footpaths, where no cars will be met other than those belonging to the farm or estate. To walk to the nearest beaches takes about 5 to 10 minutes. Place Lodge and Lavender are about 50 yards and 100 yards respectively from the slipway and dinghy park, with miles of footpaths from the door.

Within easy reach are many famous gardens, such as The Lost Garden of Heligan and Trelissick, and of course the wonderful Eden project is just 40 minutes drive away.

Dogs are welcome in all the cottages.

Place Lodge, sleeping 5/6. Downstairs, small entrance hall and a pretty sitting room with Victorian fireplace. Tall, leaded windows let in all the afternoon and evening sunlight. Next door is a spacious kitchen diner seating 8 in comfort. Back hall, leading off which is a single bedroom, which has room for a put up bed or cot, and a cloakroom/shower with loo. Upstairs, double bedroom, twin bedroom, bathroom with loo. Outside, sunny, walled terrace with rambling roses catches the sun all day. Garden table and chairs. Lawn, large enough to kick a ball around. Hardstanding for 2 cars one behind the other.

Lavender Cottage, sleeping 2, built of Cornish stone, is our doll's house, converted from the garden potting shed, is on the corner of the Place walled garden. Ground floor, kitchen/diner with French doors onto terrace. The front door is the old original stable door and leads straight into the little sitting room with fireplace. Upstairs, bathroom with loo, shower over bath, small double bedroom, 4' bed with just room for a cot. Small terrace which is a secret and sheltered sun trap. Terrace is given privacy from the walled garden by a hurdle fence, leaning over which is an old fig tree and apple tree. A door leads through the garden wall to a car space off the road.

These 2 cottages are approximately 50 and 100 yards respectively from the slipway and dinghy park.

Up on the farm, are the other 2 cottages:

Meadow House sleeping 6 in 3 bedrooms, and 9 with put up bed and double sofa bed in sitting room. There is an extra charge for more than 7 guests, see tariff. Attractive, comfortable house with views from all the bedrooms. Very quiet and peaceful. Ground floor has spacious living room with fireplace, conservatory, kitchen/diner, utility room, cloakroom/shower/loo. Upstairs, 2 double bedrooms, 1 en-suite bathroom with loo, 1 family bathroom with loo, 2 further twin bedrooms. Outside, large fenced in lawn, terrace with chairs and table.

Barton Bothy sleeping 4 in 2 bedrooms and 5 with put up bed. Semi-detached but totally secluded from the main farmhouse in which Nicky lives. This cosy cottage has lovely views. Ground floor, glassed in porch, for wellies and wet dogs etc., kitchen/diner leading into sitting room with large open fireplace. Upstairs, large double bedroom with basin, small twin bedroom, bathroom with loo, shower over bath. Outside, fenced in lawn and paved patio, table and chairs. Parking for one car, further parking very nearby.

Guestbook comments from the manager


We both just wanted to say a big thank you. We had a fantastic time in Meadow House. Absolutely loved the property and the area.

November 2014

We both agreed one of the nicest, if not the nicest, stays we've had anywhere in a long time.

October 2014

Your Lavender Cottage is such a wonderfull place. I can not see a better place to get back on the track. Walks allong the coastline, or just relaxing on the beach, or the sunset walk up to St Anthony Head, or hanging out in the little sun trapp couryard. Whatever we did, we did with great pleasure

A guest from Germany - July 2014

We had a great time and thought Barton Bothy and its location was fantastic.

Thank you Nicky and Miranda. The best holiday ever. The children were so happy as were we. The Lodge is wonderful. We'll be back next summer

some past comments :

As usual, a wonderful holiday, could we book Meadow again.

“Well, what can we say?! We both had a wonderful 2 weeks in Lavender Cottage

I was particularly struck by the peace and quiet – the silence at times was almost deafening (the only way to describe it). We would go out on the patio at night to take in the stars (and the lovely bats) and could not hear a thing! Even the Robins in the garden couldn’t wait to say hello and appeared on the fence as soon as we arrived! It was a piece of heaven on Earth!”

From the Owner

This is a magical and wonderful part of Cornwall which The Sunday Times once described as ‘a world where native oysters lie concealed by seaweed and sailing times are dictated by tides that creep silently along shallow creeks’. Its safe, sandy beaches are great places to build dams and sandcastles. The walks are breathtaking with rare birds often visiting , and deer, badgers, otters, herons, buzzards, sparrow hawks, peregrine falcons, barn owls, bats are all resident. In the spring, bluebells carpet the woods and the hedgerows are filled with wild flowers. The area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and heritage coastline. There are miles of coastal footpaths from your doorstep and all with spectacular views. Swimming in the crystal clear sea is a wonderful experience Our grown up sons still don't think there is a better place for a holiday. So many, many happy memories.

From the Owner

The 4 cottages are all set within easy walking distance of the sea on a small, private estate. No car necessary for walks, or visits to the beach. Children are happy to spend hours crabbing from the slipway or messing around in boats in Place Pool. For guests with larger boats we can provide a mooring, or for smaller boats we have a private dinghy park. The cottages are relaxed cosy and comfortable, and we won't worry if your children walk into a cottage with sandy feet, or your dogs wander in and out. In the cooler months you can snuggle up in front of a log fire after a day out walking or exploring the area. And in the summer what better than a swim in the crystal clear sea before cooking a freshly caught mackerel on the barbeque.
