What a lovely property! It was a change for us to stay new property, usually favouring harbour / beach based cottages, but it was cosy, well equipped and an ideal base for us to explore Falmouth and surrounding areas.
The property is tastefully decorated and spacious. The beds were really comfortable and a wonderful bonus to have the balcony from two of the bedrooms - we loved sitting there and looking over the fields before the sunset. The garden is sheltered and secure - perfect for furry friends and enjoy a glass of something cold!
A nice touch to have a Christmas tree for our festive break too!
We would definitely recommend Hooked on the Rocks, a short walk down to Swanpool beach - food and drinks fabulous (see photo below of their Bramble and Lobbie and Fries!) The Golf Club too provided a handy stop halfway back up the hill for a refreshment (or two) at the end of the day!
Falmouth is a relatively easy walk - within just 30 minutes you can be on Gylly Beach. We love getting the ferry to St Mawes to enjoy a pub lunch and then back again.
The walk along the coastal path in the opposite direction to Maenporth Beach is also lovely to do - despite us having some very wet weather, the footpath was relatively dry, easy to navigate and it's a nice stroll to the cafe there.
The owners were open about the short section of road that you have to navigate before being able to cut into the golf course footpath, don't be put off by this - it is only a short section - just perhaps make sure to have a torch or bright clothing if you do it at dawn/dusk.
Many thanks for finding the time to write us such a wonderful review of your twixmas stay at Rosedene! Your festive escape to Cornwall sounds idyllic and full of adventure. It's a pleasure to read that you found the property to be comfortable, well-equipped and perfectly located for Falmouth ventures. We're so glad that you were able to make use of the bedroom balconies to watch the sunset over the neighbouring fields. Sending kind regards from all of us at Cornish Holiday Cottages.
