About Scott Dawson

The owner is an upstanding, caring, fun loving individual from Liverpool. With a large family and a love of his children. His early adult vacations were spent along the North Cornish coast, specifically holidaying around St. Ives in all forms of accomodation.

A passion for this rugged coastline, beautiful colours and light, excellent beaches and endearing to the warm and happy locals in Cornwall.

An approachable and affable individual with a zest for life he asks that you enjoy the character and charm of Rosedale.

HE wishes to retain Rosedale for his children and his grandchildren for many years to come and would hope you care for this abode as though it was your own.

Why Scott Dawson chose St Ives area

Happy memories of this wonderful county and its local people always draws me back. I decided I should become a `sort of local` with a desire to settle once my work is done in other places.

A man who has a real passion for warm and thoughtful people who has a passion for this area in England. Its truly beautiful yet rugged and full of the dynamics that come with the changing seasons. With those seasons come the changing light, the changing colours of the ocean and the sky.

A place where children will enjoy whether its flying a kite on a beach or bathing in the cool, clear refreshing north Atlantic waters.

What more to you need to be drawn to this gem in England

What makes this cottage unique

There are too many to list. Start with staying in the house and pottering or playing or just simply relaxing in the delightful garden. Then take it from there.....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs Rutz - Oct. 2013 -A Lovely house in a quiet convenient area, close to the beaches and yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle so you can just relax and enjoy. In the cooler nights the open fire was aesthetic in a warm snug lounge. The garden is wonderful and private.

Mrs M.Aitken - July 2013 - A most interesting property in a private quiet location. The kitchen is lovely, in typical farmhouse fit. The garden is large and overall we were very happy with the property. The location to all points of interest is optimal with easy access to the A30 and surrounding beaches and towns.

Lovely comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Rosedale Cottage, loved everything about it, fresh flowers when we arrived and spotlessly clean, so full of interesting things from the pictures to the little cupboards with toys and puzzles. The garden was beautiful with lovely views out over the saltings. Could easily walk to the station to catch the train into St Ives, although we preferred Hayle beaches. Our week went too quickly, I would love to go back sometime and would recommend to anyone. Erica W

What a wonderful place to stay!

Everything you needed and more!

The location was perfect with good transport links and the local pub was very convenient with friendly staff.

We were looking for quaint and we were not disappointed. The gardens were beautiful and we spent a few evenings just enjoying the peace with a glass or two of wine.

I would definitely return to Rosedale.

Thank you Scott for keeping in touch beforehand we all loved the house.

Lovely property, excellent location and spacious but with a warm welcoming feel. Views were beautiful in the morning and set just off the rail station and walking path to Carbis Bay and St Ives. Will certainly be returning but maybe in the spring/summer time to catch some warmer weather.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a delightful combination of rustic and modern in a beautiful setting overlooking the Hayle estuary.

We liked the fact we were able to walk, drive or take the nearby train into St Ives and the cottage being in a convenient location within walking distance to nearby pubs and the shops were certainly positive aspects.

As this is the first time we have visited Cornwall we were also very pleased to be offered some advice and information from the owner, who sent us some useful websites and numbers to help plan our stay.

We had a mixture of weather so spent some time in the property and found it to be very homely. All in all a very nice vacation and will certainly returning.
