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.

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.
Guest from Exeter stayed for 4 nights.
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).
Guest from Gunnislake stayed for 4 nights.
Excellent standard of cleanliness to this lovely bungalow. Very comfortable bed and kitchen really well equipped. Beautiful gardens and so good that they take dogs. Wendy the owner is lovely.
Guest from Devon stayed for 5 nights.
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.
Guest from Cirencester stayed for 14 nights.
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.
Guest from Sheffield stayed for 10 nights.
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.!
Guest from Lutterworth stayed for 7 nights.
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.
Guest from Buckhurst Hill stayed for 7 nights.
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.
Guest from Fleet stayed for 7 nights.
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.
Guest from Morden stayed for 7 nights.

The cottage has a beautiful garden.and lovely countryside views.

Guest from Hythe stayed for 7 nights.
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.
Guest from Plymouth stayed for 7 nights.
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.
Guest from Stockport stayed for 14 nights.

Robin Cottage was in a superb location. Extremly clean and very comfortable, with a beautiful garden. Wendy the owner was considerate and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
Guest from Bognor Regis stayed for 7 nights.
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 :)
Guest from Waltham Cross stayed for 7 nights.

Guest from Polegate stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage was lovely, very clean and a excellent location for our stay. The gardens were nice, although I wish the weather was better so we could have used them more. The pub across the road was friendly and nice food.

Guest from Newton Abbot stayed for 7 nights.
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.
Guest from Cullompton stayed for 3 nights.
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.
Guest from Malvern stayed for 9 nights.
Comfortable cottage in a peaceful location, well equipped with pretty gardens. We enjoyed watching the creek change with the tides and listening to the bird song. We had a very nice meal at the local village pub which is well known for its food. Both the coast and inland Cornwall are within easy reach.
Guest from Doncaster stayed for 7 nights.
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.
