Rosemundy Cottage was my first home in the area before buying next door with my partner Jon so we now live in the other half of the semi-detached cottage.

Lovely Cottage in Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a perfect location for exploring Cornwall. The cottage is full of character with quirky features. The garden is a bonus and very private. The beach is a 10 minute walk with pubs and restaurants close by. I would definitely recommend this as a holiday home from home.

A beautiful cottage with character and felt more like a home than a holiday let.

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect idyllic week at Rosemundy Cottage.

We were made to feel very welcome and at ease by Jon and Anne. A nice touch was our welcome package of scones, cream and Jam and a bottle of wine. There was even doggy chews!

The cottage was equipped with everything we needed plus home comforts, was clean, very comfortable beds (important after a long day!) and had a lovely garden for us and our dog. We made use of the barbecue hut with family that visited, which easily sat 10 of us. We had a great evening around the fire.

Location was perfect for us with Porthkidney beach a 10 min walk . Our 2 children loved the Easter egg hunt in Anne's woods which is 5 mins away. They loved going back there a few times to play on rope swings and build dens. Our dog also loved exploring the woods!

There is the Badger Inn, train station and bus stop all within 5 mins walk. Perfect cottage in a perfect location. Thank you, we will be back!!

Lovely home from home

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage set in a nice little village. Very close to dog friendly all year beach and a nice walk into St. Ives which is about 3 miles away which the dog loved (especially as he ended up doing it 3 times in four days). Also close to a nice golf course which my Son ended up playing a rounnd on. The cottage was very olde worlde and was well kitted out with a lovely little garden. If I could change just one thing it would be a door on the en-suite bathroom. A bit challenging with another adult in tow sometimes. However, there is a downstairs toilet and shower with the property. The fact that we liked it so much that we definitely would all consider coming again (and that includes the dog).

A lovely place to get away too

  • 5 of 5

What can I say other than that Rosemundy cottage is a home from home. This is our second stay at Rosemundy having previously been here in September 2016 and we couldn't wait to return. As on our previous visit we received a warm welcome from both Jon the owner and his collie 'Bella' who gets on great with our own collie. We found the cottage clean, cosy and very relaxing and the welcome pack of scones, and wine was well received . A nice new addition to the cottage was a small spirits bar with an honesty box - I sampled a few whiskeys without hesitation. As a village Lelant is beautiful. Lined with character cottages throughout. I would happily live here and its proximity to the coast (5 mins walk to Porthkidney beach) is very convenient along with the 50 yard walk to the Badger inn public house which serves great food and good beer.

All in all myself, my wife and my Border collie thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely make a return visit. Thank you Jon and Anne for making our stay a pleasant one.
