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.

About the Owner
About Miranda Forrester
The Spry Grant-Dalton family has owned the Place Estate with its church and family home for over 400 years (the church is now owned by the Church Conservation Trust). The first estate cottage was converted to a holiday let over 35 years ago, by our mother and father.
The cottage business is now run by us 2 sisters. Nicola who lives on site in Barton Farm House, and looks after the guests and the cottages, and Miranda, who deals with all the bookings and requests for information from her home in Warwickshire.
Why Miranda Forrester chose Truro & Falmouth area
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
There is a discount of £60.00 for 2 week bookings in Meadow in July and August.
5% discount on only 2 guests staying in Meadow during Feb/March/April/May excluding Easter/Spring bank holiday
Prices exclude electricity/heating. Meters are read in each cottage at the start and end of the holiday and guests pay their account before leaving. Linen is included in the rent. On arrival the log basket and wood shed are full of wood and a couple of days supply of kindling is provided. There will be an extra charge if more wood is required.
Short breaks are available depending on time of year as priority is given to full week bookings.

Under no circumstances do we allow guests to have extra visitors in the cottages using sleeping bags and camp beds. Nor are tents allowed as extra accommodation. Please inform us if you wish to have an extra visitor. Charges for extra guests, which includes babies, are shown on the tariff.
If the holiday is cancelled, whatever the reason, the whole rent is due. If we are able to re-let the weeks involved, the deposit will be returned less an administration fee of £60.00. This also applies to guests who wish to change the date of their booked holiday. In this instance there will be no administration fee charged.
For their own protection prospective visitors are advised to insure their holiday against cancellation.
