Higher Roskorwell is situated on the Lizard Peninsula, designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
This lovingly restored, eighteenth century cottage is approached by a bridleway that connects to the spectacular Cornish coastal path - every walker's delight.
The hamlet of Roskorwell, is located just half a mile above the fishing village of Porthallow and the welcoming Five Pilchards Inn. The larger village of St Keverne, whose graveyard bears testimony to many sea-tragedies off the infamous Manacles, lies a mile and a half beyond. Nearby is the award-winning Roskilly's family farm, a must-visit, no matter what your age; their food is scrumptious.
To the north of the cottage, is the very beautiful Carne Creek leading to St. Anthony with its ancient church. Here you can hire boats and discover the stunning Helford River and its creeks, made famous by Daphne Du Maurier, whilst the hamlets of Helford and Durgan are linked by a seasonal passenger ferry.
After a day discovering the Peninsula and its beaches, return to enjoy our welcoming farmhouse kitchen with seasonal Rayburn, larder and Butler's sink; there is also a double oven cooker, dishwasher & microwave.
Sleeping accommodation consists of two dedicated bedrooms, with controllable heating; each has a chest of drawers, clothes cupboard and double bed; one room also has a single bed & cot. There is also a panoramic upstairs sitting room, equipped with a superior 4ft 6in double sofa-bed, wood stove and TV; and next to it is a heated shower-room with toilet.
Downstairs is dominated by the living room, its inglenook with multi-fuelled stove at one end and an open fire at the other, and further warmth from a wall heater. Freeview TV/DVD, ipod dock Bt Infinity fibre optic WiFi, emergency phone, books, games, maps and information are all available.
The slate hallway leads to luxury, underfloor heating with a newly renovated large roll-top Edwardian bath, plus hand basin, toilet and heated towel rail.
The garden is just as pretty and interesting, being bounded by Cornish hedging and divided into two rooms with long, westward views towards Goonhilly. The BBQ, deckchairs & tidy-dry are all housed in the old Privy, and there is a gravelled parking area for 3 cars.
Hiding down a bridleway that connects to the coastal path, an idyllic eighteenth century stone cottage (sleeps 7) in an area of outstanding beauty on The Lizard Peninsula. Lovingly restored & fully equipped, WiFi, inglenook & open log fires, Rayburn. Amazing views & sunsets, peaceful, rural setting.
