The Roseland Peninsula is known for its unspoilt rural and coastal scenery with plenty of walks for all ages and good swimming beaches. St Anthony Head and lighthouse, the famous church at St Just-in-Roseland, the harbour villages of Porthscatho and St Mawes with the ferry across to Falmouth and other boat and fishing trips - all can be combined into interesting days out without the need for a long drive. And if you prefer to get on your bike, the farm is located on National Cycle Route 3, and we can provide information on other selected itineraries.
Many of our visitors take a walk across the fields to Pendower, a sandy swimming beach, where the Southwest Coast Path will take you east or west for miles and miles. In addition to our farm trail, there are many local walks along the coast and the River Fal, across the fields or along the lanes.
There are many opportunities for getting on the water: ferries across the River Fal to Falmouth and other ports of call, boat trips up river to Truro,Trelissick Gardens and Smugglers' Cottage. To check these out, click on www.falriverlinks.co.uk. There are also opportunities on the Roseland for sailing, windsurfing and kayaking lessons, riding and tennis within five miles, and excellent golf courses within a half-hour's drive.
