Cornwall and the Roseland Peninsula
the best on offer in the Duchy
The south Cornwall coast basks in a Mediterranean clime as the Gulf Stream blows in warm comforting winds that ensure balmy summers and mild winters making it an appealing destination all year round and ideal for getting out and about. Sunrise on the south coast is particularly spectacular and our clifftop position offers the perfect spot to watch the day dawn.
