    About this property

    • Charming seating areas make the most of the lovely garden views either side of the front door, which is set into a generous porch, leading to the interior. Once inside, tradition takes a back seat to beauty and comfort. The two sitting rooms have oak-boarded floors, wood-burners, and high-speed fibre optic Wi-Fi, but perhaps more unexpected is the sheer spaciousness of the rooms, and everywhere feels light and airy, thanks to the many windows that overlook the gardens and the woodland beyond.
      The kitchen is a delight, complete with an Aga, a hob, an oven, exposed beams, wooden worktops, and a Belfast sink. It also boasts original slate flagstones with underfloor heating.as well as a pantry and a utility area.
      Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, all wonderfully and individually decorated, one of which has a roll-top bath, there's a separate bathroom and a unique wet-room, with a curved wall, studded with stained glass… everywhere you look in this property, a sense of creative design abounds.
      All these rooms enjoy superb views over the gardens. Outside, there's a garage, sheds, and a Victorian-style greenhouse sitting on the bank beside the cottage, and tucked away in the woods above and beyond, is a beautiful, decked clearing, with your very own shepherd's hut hideaway, complete with its own electricity and Wi-Fi!

    Local information

    • Rose Cottage is really special, a place of peace, tranquillity, and comfort in a beautiful natural setting in South Cornwall.
    • Access is via a meandering track that arcs its way around the western perimeter of the Lost Gardens of Heligan, before dropping down a wooded slope, to reveal this heavenly property.
    • The cottage is a stunner. and nature-lovers will immediately be struck by its surroundings – the guiding hand of Dominic Cole, landscape architect to both the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project, has produced a series of glorious wildflower gardens that cascade down the hillside and border the stream that separates the valley floor from the surrounding ancient woodlands. The effect of the planting is to frame and soften the outline of the traditional stone-and-slate Cornish cottage, which is set back into the hillside, in a superb south-facing position.
    • The picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey is just down the hill, with its restaurants, pubs, shops and doctor's surgery, as well as easy access to a series of beautiful, sandy beaches that stretch along Cornwall's south coast, from Charlestown in the east, to St. Mawes in the west. Mevagissey has a popular primary school, as do Gorran Haven and Charlestown, and is just six miles from the supermarkets, senior schools and the Medical Hub of St Austell
    • Rose Cottage sits in such calm, natural isolation that it's hard to believe how close it is to the National rail and bus connections at St Austell; and just 14 miles takes you to the county town of Truro, with its cathedral, branches of most high-street stores, independent shops and local markets, a world-class Theatre venue, and Cornwall's major Hospital.
    • Less than 20 miles takes you to Newquay airport, with connections to many major cities in Britain and Ireland, and onwards to Europe, and the world.
