Rose Cottage is situated about a mile from St Tudy a quaint Cornish village, the church around which the village was built was first constructed in the 6th century and then rebuilt in the 11th, 15th and latterly 19th centuries, the village has been built around the original Celtic circular raised graveyard - known locally as "God's Acre!" St Tudy is believed to be the birthplace of Captain Bligh of the "Mutiny on the Bounty" fame! The St Tudy Inn (formerly the Cornish Arms) will welcome you in for a refreshing drink, a hearty meal or both!
Wadebridge was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth a visit. It is said the bridge was built on wool as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built the town became known as Wadebridge. The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring.
Both Wadebridge and nearby Camelford are centrally located in order to explore the nearby hills and moors. Wadebridge is the perfect base, being the half way point, from which to discover the Camel Trail, a walk and cycle track following the old railway route from Bodmin to Padstow. There is wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene trail and bikes can be hired from Bodmin, Wadebridge or Padstow. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Steins empire in Padstow.
The National Trust have three properties nearby, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and the dramatic cliffs and beach at Bedruthan Steps. Or if you fancy something different try a tour around the Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornish Wine has been growing in stature around the world and their sparkling wines are truly stunning, having picked up lots of international awards, go for a tasting you will not be disappointed!
Bodmin Moor is a couple of miles away to the East and is dominated by large granite tors which tower over sweeping expanses of moorland. Bodmin Moor has engendered fear and awe throughout history and hence provided inspiration for writers, poets and sculptors. Standing stones, burial chambers, clapper bridges cottages and farms across the moor give a hint of the 4000 years of human development ever since Bronze Age farmers first arrived.
Port Isaac is about 4 miles to the North West and this has recently been the base of filming for "Doc Martin" with Martin Clunes, there are a good selection of cafes shops and pubs. Further up the coast there are all of the golden beaches and coves between Polzeath and Tintagel with some of the best surf in Europe.
Bodmin lies a few miles to South West and has a large selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants.

The best cottage we have staying at in our 5 years of holidaying in Cornwall. The cottage had everything we needed and was nice and spacious. There was milk, wine and flowers on arrival which was very much appreciated. The garden was lovely both for us and our dog, it was very secure. It is in an ideal position for travelling around Cornwall. I would highly recommend the cottage and would love to go back one day.

We have had a lovely week with out two beagles, this cottage was perfect for us tha garden was dog friendly so it was a great comfort to know we could let them out to enjoy the garden without worrying about them escaping. The location of the cottage was great and we got a lot of walks of the internet which were not far away from us. We visited Padstow for some award winning pastys, and Port Issac which was great. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family, also the bottle of wine, milk and flowers was a lovely touch ,

This cosy little cottage was a joy!! It oozes character and charm, was very clean and well equipped to make it a home from home experience.We didnt take our dog but the garden is totally enclosed and safe if you do take a dog and there are some beautiful beaches close by that allow dogs on them in peak season.I must say thankyou for the thoughtful little touches a bottle of wine and a pint of milk left in the fridge and a vase of fresh flowers all things to make you feel welcome and very much appreciated! Rose cottage is in a good location for exploring beautiful Cornwall.We specifically wanted to be close to Padstow,Tintagel,Bude,Port Isaac of Doc Martin fame and Boscastle so was ideal for us but also not far from the south coast and the delights of Mevagissey and Fowey. We had a wonderful stay and cant recommend it highly enough. We will be back.

Guest from Stroud stayed for 3 nights.
Wonderful stay at Rose Cottage. Supremely clean, lovely location and has everything you need for the perfect stay. We left something at the cottage and went back to collect, the ladies cleaning the cottage could not have been more helpful. The booking process was easy, the welcome pack was very nice and not expected addition. Even an invite to explore the grounds of the estate is a lovely bonus. I am sure we will look to be staying again.
Thank you for your review and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Rose. Thank you for your kind comments about our cleaning team - they work hard to make sure the cottages are sparkling for every guest! I hope you visited the garden, it should have been spectacular at this time of year.
Guest from Walsall stayed for 7 nights.
Comfy and clean accommodation with easy access to many main attractions in North Cornwall. Helpful caretaker who was on hand to answer any questions. Does need to state that the road running along side the cottage does get busy on weekday mornings and is very noisy.
Thank you for your review and I hope you enjoyed your stay. I'm glad you found our housekeeper helpful. Unfortunately the lane does get busy during "rush hour" times but hopefully you don't hear this too much inside the house.
