Need a little break before the Christmas parties start or just want to do your Christmas shopping somewhere different for a change? Where better to relax and recharge your batteries than the Roseland?
Just think of blustery cliff top walks, checking out the grey seals and migratory birds, then stopping off in a cosy Roseland pub – all log fires and special winter warming meals.
Our favourites are The Kings Head at Ruan Lanihorne, The Roseland Inn at Philleigh, The Victory in St Mawes and The Plume of Feathers at Portscatho – as you can see plenty of pubs on the Roseland to choose from!
Truro and Falmouth both have lots of little independent shops as well as the big chains for that perfect Christmas gift, late night shopping and Christmas markets abound so there is no excuse for leaving present buying until the last minute.
The King Harry Ferry runs late on Wednesdays for Truro late night shopping and not only may you be offered a free mince pie, Father Christmas has been spotted once or twice too, so let the chains take the strain.
Enjoy a short break through the winter
If you really want to get into that winter mood then take yourself to the Eden Project and as well as visiting the giant biomes you can also fly around the ice skating rink for a couple of hours, showing off your twirls and turns.
For foodies there are some great special offers around – check out Jamie Olivers Fifteen at Watergate Bay which has special Winter lunch for just £24 and the menu looks excellent.
Also The Tresanton in St Mawes always has great lunchtime offers available, including a glass of wine – it it’s sunny you can even eat on the terrace – patio heaters and blankets provided and a stunning view of the harbour, St Antonys Lighthouse and Falmouth.
After all that walking, shopping and eating come back to your cosy cottage with full central heating, (test your fire lighting skills with the log burner in Cockle Cottage), glorious bathrooms with underfloor heating and the peace and quiet that is our speciality at Roundhouse Barns.
