Property Location


Ruan Lanihorne is a charming village with an historic church dating from the 14th Century and a superb pub - the King's Head. The area is truly beautiful countryside. Venture across Sett Bridge towards the magnificent Lamorran Woods and you will undoubtedly see an abundance of wildlife with waders and waterfowl inhabiting the tidal marshes. It is a haven for those wanting to explore and get off the beaten track, yet within easy reach of many attractions. An adventurous ride through the woods and you are awarded the delights of Tregothnan Estate, home to the Boscawen family since 1335, complete with teas and honey made on the Estate. Nearby Fentongollan Farm producing module vegetable plants and a fabulous collection of Cornish daffodil bulbs.

The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey to St Mawes and bordered by the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland Peninsula has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters.

With The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do. St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Gardens house a wonderful collection of tropical plants. St Just-in-Roseland has arguably the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek. The Veryan Roundhouses are a must see, on the way to Nare Head, where you will find the most spectacular views of Gerrans Bay. The little village of Portloe nestles in lovely valley and is one of Cornwall's quintessential spots. Portscatho has a number of art galleries and many artists find the light in this harbour village inspires much of their work. The Roseland Inn at Philleigh is a 16th century pub just waiting for you to visit.

The most popular thing to do though on the Roseland is simply to walk and enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful coastline. Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.

Lovely rural cottage

Robin cottage was a delight - in a beautiful rural hamlet yet still close to the coast. The house itself was very well appointed, comfortable and spacious with a beautiful garden which was fully enclosed for our dog and a further enclosed patio with lovely views. We particularly enjoyed having a door onto the garden from the bedroom and also the lovely conservatory. Wendy the owner was very helpful and friendly. Robin cottage was one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

Comfortable, immaculate country accommodation

We were very pleased indeed with Robin Cottage. The accommodation was spacious, immaculate and very comfortable. Wendy had thoughtfully provided everything that was needed - including a welcoming bottle of wine! The kitchen in particular was extremely well equipped. A bonus was the use of Wendy's delightful garden which wraps around her house and Robin Cottage. It was also good to have her on hand next door for any queries we had. The setting is delightfully rural with walks on the doorstep. We could not fault it.

Quality cottage in a lovely setting

Robin Cottage is well presented, immaculately clean, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, with thoughtful additional touches such as bedside radio, hair dryers, fresh flowers on arrival. Also clear and easy to follow instructions for equipment, heating etc. Wendy was a helpful yet unobtrusive host. The cottage has pretty gardens and views out onto a small wildlife pond and the estuary marshes. It is very peaceful. Photographs don't quite do it justice. Great place for a holiday with a dog, as the garden is enclosed and there are easy walks direct from the doorstep. The weather for our stay was not the best, so having such a warm and comfortable base was great. Lots of wonderful Cornish gardens within easy reach (we especially liked Trewithen).

Beautiful, a perfect little holiday retreat

We had an excellent New Year break in this beautiful, quiet and unspoilt part of Cornwall. The cottage was really lovely - just perfect; it was comfortable, warm, cosy, well appointed - a real home from home. Excellent bathroom with generous shower, extremely comfortable bed, and conservatory for meals with a great view over the estuary. Wendy was a superb hostess - very kind, thoughtful, friendly, welcoming and so generous with a present in the fridge on arrival. It is a perfect place from which to explore the beautiful Roseland Peninsula - plenty of coastal walks, pretty villages, beaches close by, plenty of bird life and the village of Ruan Lanihorne is delightful. It is also absolutely brilliant that Wendy allows and welcomes dogs at the cottage - such a big bonus. Great pub just up the road too with a good menu. We can recommend this cottage as a wonderful holiday destination and we will certainly be back. Thank you.

What a find......

Robin Cottage is an excellent property & we thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay. Such a pleasure to book a personally managed cottage. Ruan Lanihorne is perfectly placed for exploring The Roseland. There are good walks from the door with hardly a car to be seen & yet less than 20 minutes to Truro.

What a little gem

Well i am so glad we found Robin cottage. A true home from home with everything you could possibly need. Wendy was an amazing host and while not intrusive at all, was always at the end of the phone if needed. The village is picture postcard and a great base from which to explore the rest of cornwall. I would recommend this place in a shot. Beautiful.!

So relaxing

Beautiful setting, especially if you like flowers and nature, we had some wonderful walks along the river with our dog. The owner was very polite and the welcome pack (especially the homegrown tomatoes) was very welcome. Only slight critisem is that it should state it should state in the description that there is no phone signal. It is the most relaxed I have felt after returning from a holiday and we will definitely return.

Back to Cornwall after 30 years

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall. The cottage was amazing with every comfort you could ask for a real home from home. Wendy was a superb hostess and welcomed us back as if we had never been away for so long. Just the sort of holiday which would suit all ages. Beaches close by, lovely walks, plenty of bird life for those who bird watch. We can recommend this cottage as a wonderful holiday destination. We will certainly be back.

A lovely cottage, Wendy was so friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Very clean everywhere, nice comfy bed and we enjoyed watching the tide coming in and out along the river/estuary. The garden was fantastic for the dog as it was completely enclosed and safe. Would highly recommend. Cornwall is just stunning. Robin Cottage is a perfect hideaway.

I would not hesitate to recommend Robin Cottage which was immaculate with good quality furnishings, in addition to being very well equipped and everything in as-new condition. The cottage has a beautiful garden.and lovely countryside views. It is situated in a peaceful location ideal for exploring the scenic Roseland Peninsula and visiting the Eden Project/ Lost Gardens of Heligan. The owner is both welcoming and helpful. There is a great pub for meals within a couple of minutes' walk and others within a short drive.We found Robin Cottage to be excellent in every respect.

Our Introduction to Roseland

Robin Cottage provides excellent accommodation and is ideally situated within reach all of the attractive locations of the Roseland Peninsula, be they country walks on footpaths, quiet country lanes, one of many secluded coves or sandy beaches. The stay at Robin Cottage was the first time we had experienced the wonder of the peninsula and we certainly hope to return to Robin Cottage frequently. The immediate surrounding area to the Cottage is peaceful and there is an abundance of wild life.

A slice of Paradise!

We enjoyed this cottage so much. Everything from location to amenities. We felt at home immediately as everything we needed was there, including a welcoming bottle of wine and pint of milk. The views are amazing and can be seen from many aspects including from ones own garden. The only sounds to be heard are birds and more birds, only interrupted by the very occasional car. The location offered relatively easy access to not only the Roseland Penisula but also places such as Truro ... as long as you like country lanes! Wendy, the owner, lives on site but is very unobtrusive, very friendly and helpful. We plan to return.

A lovely summer break

We booked quite late so weren't sure if we'd missed the best places so we were over the moon when we arrived to find Robin Cottage. Perfect location for exploring Cornwall, extremely quiet, a lovely garden with BBQ and a well appointed kitchen. Wendy (the owner) gave us some fresh tomatos from her greenhouse and a lovely bottle of wine - both went down very well indeed! The secure off street parking was also very much appreciated as were the fluffy white towels and a few 'essentials' to get us started. If you're looking for a quiet place with the best pub in Cornwall a 2 minute stroll away and all that St Mawes has to offer just 15 mins away in the car then look no further. Highly recommended. James, Polly and Alfie :)

A very relaxing break

Cottage (which was a good size) was easy to find from directions and a warm welcome awaited from the owner (and her little jack russell, Jenny). Local pub with good food within walking distance. Plenty of places to visit whether you want beach, country or city. So peaceful with our own "two" patios and garden which was lovely to come back to after going out exploring. Shame we weren't staying for two weeks but hope to visit again one day. Very friendly and helpful owner.

Delightful experience

We loved our time in the cottage. The garden was sunny and colourful, filled with most beautiful flowers and looked out across the valley towards rolling hills. There was a second patio on the other side which remained in the shade should things get too hot. The fittings were comprehensive and modern and we particularly enjoyed sitting in the sunroom/dining room enjoying the vista. We were most comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A LOVELY RETREAT

The cottage has been beautifully refurbished, and is very comfortable. The owner lives next door, and gave us a lovely welcome. The views are lovely, and the garden was great for us and our retriever, Alfie. We were outside at nighttime, and you could hear a pin drop, apart from the occasional owl hooting, it was silent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay thankyou.
