About the neighborhood
The cottage is situated in the South of Cornwall. This green and peaceful landscape is fed by rivers from the high moorlands of Bodmin, characterised by leafy estuaries, fishing villages, beaches, harbours and beautiful gardens that flourish in South Cornwall's mild climate.

Around the coastline Cornwall's maritime legacy is never far away where local fishermen land their daily catch of fresh seafood, and tall ships, luggers and ketches unfurl their sails in the Cornish breeze. You can feast on the days catch, jump on a ferry at St Mawes to explore the County Maritime Museum in Falmouth, or visit numerous picturesque fishing villages including Mevagissey, Charlestown, or Portloe.

The Roseland Peninsula is recognised nationally, and contains large sections of Cornwall's Area...
