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.
There is an excellent pub at the nearby village of Philleigh, The Roseland Inn which serves good food. There are also pubs in Veryan, Portloe, Portscatho & St Mawes. There are general stores available at Portscatho, Tregony & Veryan. St Mawes has a wider selection of services. The city of Truro is about a 25 minute drive and has some superb shopping.

The beaches of Pendower, Carne & Porthcurnick are all within a 10 minute drive. The Roseland has some wonderful gardens to visit and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are about 20 minutes away.

Guest from Farnham stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstools was the perfect holiday cottage for us. The cottage and dog proof garden are so pretty and the cottage itself is very cosy, beautifully decorated and exceptionally well equipped. The location is an ideal base from which to explore Roseland and everywhere was within easy reach. There was a comprehensive folder of information about the cottage and the area and Gail, the housekeeper, was also very helpful with advice about where to eat/shop etc. We would definitely want to return if we choose to holiday in Roseland again.
Guest from Welwyn Garden City stayed for 7 nights.
The Roseland Peninsular is a must. The cottage is in a great location. The beds were comfortable and the annex was really good. Unfortunately 4 people out of 6 in our party were over 6 foot tall and spent most of the time banging their heads on the low beams which are not highlighted in the property details. The property is ideal for anyone under 510 Some of the kitchen utensils could be updated as have seen better days.
Guest from Heathfield stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely cottage. Teenage son loved annexe! Very comfortable beds and every bit of equipment you could wish for in the kitchen!
Guest from Ringwood stayed for 6 nights.
We stayed at Toadstools with a grown up family, the layout was ideal as my daughter and son in law were able make use of the annexe and have some privacy. We took our dog with us and the enclosed garden was appreciated by both us and the dog, being well maintained and of a good size. The cottage had all the facilities we required allowing us to cook in some evenings and eat out at other times, I thought there may have been a barbecue that we could have used as the weather was good but this was not the case. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept well. Showers and baths all worked well with plenty of hot water available for us all. The Roseland Pennisular is a fabulous area and in May there are not many other tourists about which suited us just fine, we have not been there before but would go again. Few small gripes Dishwasher did not work No soap was provided in the bathrooms We wanted to properly recycle our rubbish and bottles but there were no instructions on how to do this, the recycling box and bags had been used for other storage. It was thought that a large wired hair dog must spend long periods of time at the cottage as hair was embedded in all of the carpets, this only became apparent when using the vacuum on the last day.
Guest from Gerrards Cross stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstools was an absolutely wonderful place to stay for us - a couple with grown up children. We loved it. The Annexe was perfect for grown-up daughter and boyfriend as it gave them privacy and Independence. The Cottage is picture-book pretty - like something from the film, The Holiday and is beautifully, and thoughtfully equipped. Every comfort has been provided - the big comfy beds are a treat. For Londoners, the quiet and the dark was extra-ordinary - and lovely. There is ample parking and the garden is beautiful. It must be wonderful to sit out there is Summer. The low beams were a hazard for my tall husband and the kitchen could have been cleaner (though very easily rectified) - and everywhere else was beautifully clean. We all loved our time at Toadstools and would love to return.
Guest from Ashtead stayed for 7 nights.
A pretty cottage tastefully presented with a modern, well equipped kitchen. We loved the garden which had a Mediterranean feel and the main bedroom is exceptionally spacious and comfortable. Plenty of parking space, for 3 cars if necessary and the annexe was great for a friend of the family who had her own space.
Guest from Stockton-on-tees stayed for 7 nights.
Excellent cottage Ideally located to get all around cornwall Would recommend and will be looking to stay here again
Guest from London stayed for 7 nights.
We had a lovely stay at Toadstools which is a beautiful traditional cottage well located in the heart of Roseland. The cottage was well equipped and is clearly a cherished family home - it was great that we didn't have to go out and buy salt and pepper etc ! The cottage garden was delightful and a haven for the local birds. Being rural Cornwall the internet is a bit erratic. A few logs for the log burner would have been nice - the weather in June can be very changeable ! Overall highly recommended.
Guest from Rugby stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful cottage set in s great location on the Roseland ! Loved the comfy beds and in the living room the cosy wood burner !
Guest from Kingston stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstalls has everything you need for an escape to the country with the beach just 10 mins away. Just lovely
Guest from Anstey stayed for 3 nights.
Great for its quietness, a little far out to places but not a proble with a car. Cannot complain about anything at all. Only slight drama we were faced with, was a kitchen chair breaking with a family member on it to which we have informed the owners about and placed into the utiity outhouse. Other than that, very comfortable, quaint and peaceful.
Guest from St. Albans stayed for 4 nights.
There were 6 of us in total staying at the Toatstools including two young children (1 and 4) and a dog. We had use of the annexe too which was great so we didn't feel as though we were all cramped - and the rest of the party didn't need to hear the children in early morning. Absolutely fantastic place! You are hidden away on a small country lane close to farming fields but within a 10min drive of shops/beach/small towns. The beautiful cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay for a large family, from cooking wholesome food in the kitchen to keeping entertained if weather is bad and you have no choice but to stay in. We were actually looking forward to returning home every day to sit by the log burning fire with a nice cup of hot choc. The area is so picturesque and would definitely be returning soon in the future. As we did little research before leaving we weren't aware most places were closed being out of season and pubs shut at two till the evening and stop serving food after a certain time. We were caught out a few times with hungry kids but we'll certainly plan ahead for next time. St Mawes (within 15 min drive) is so beautiful. Wish we had more time to explore the whole area. Next time we will book for longer and definitely consider Toadstools a place to stay. Thank you for giving us a lovely place to stay for our first trip to Cornwall and for providing the information to show what was around.
Guest from Rochester stayed for 7 nights.
Overall the stay was lovely, perfect garden for the dogs. Location is a bit out of the way but once you get your bearings it's all good. During winter times we would suggest that having a few logs and kindles supplied for the first night for guest because the temp drops at night and despite the heating being on the chill in the air is still noticeable. There was prompt service from Gail, when the heating did go for 24 hours and we were grateful for that. We will be recommending the cottage to friends and hope to visit again maybe later in the year.
Guest from Hampshire stayed for 3 nights.
Relaxing and good get-a-away from it all feel. Creature comforts to hand, quaint and lots of extras. Would go back and recommend! Would have liked more loo roll, t towels and kitchen towel. Watch your head on low doorways as cottage.
Guest from near Hastings stayed for 4 nights.
A lovely comfy cottage with everything you needed and high class fixtures and fittings. Comfy beds with beautiful White Company and Suzie Watson bedlinens and a beautifully fitted kitchen and bathroom. The garden was beautiful (even in February) and is safe and enclosed for our dogs. The stove fire in the sitting room was difficult to keep alight and needs new seals around the doors. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. Could live there and will definitely return.
Guest from Wilderswil stayed for 21 nights.
We booked 9 months ago and were looking forward to your holiday the whole summer. We travel with 2 dogs, so one criteria is a well fenced-in garden. We like to have a house to ourselves and preferably somewhere in the countryside. Toadstools provided all this and more. It is cosy, clean, very comfortable beds and as mentioned, that garden is great. The location in Treworga was ideal for us, as we could fan out to many different places without having to put too many miles in. All in all, great place, great stay, great area!
Guest from Marlborough stayed for 7 nights.
We throughly enjoyed our holiday on the Roseland and we're already panning our holiday there next year. Toadstools is a lovely cottage with everything you could need. The bed in the main bedroom was the comfiest we've ever slept in on holiday. The garden is perfect for young children and dogs as its fully enclosed. It is full of flowers and perfect for sitting out in to enjoy the evening sun. The annex is a great addition although we didn't use it. The cottage is in a good location for the beaches and pubs etc. The dog walking is not great from the cottage with out getting in the car due to complete lack of footpaths in the area.
Guest from Rugby stayed for 7 nights.
A beautiful cottage in a lovely part of Cornwall. Comfortable, spacious and well thought out, warm and cosy. It smelt lovely when we arrived. For me it was quite an inspiration, everything I love, gorgeous Susie Watson curtains, Garden Trading items the Smeg fridge and distressed furniture. Unfortunately, the car broke down on Saturday, but having such a lovely place to stay in compensated. I could have stayed another week, and usually I am ready to go home after a week. I really could live here, I was quite sad to leave. A dream come true.
Guest from Barnsley stayed for 7 nights.
Comfy super king bed, cozy lounge with log burner, well equipped kitchen and newly refurbed bathroom. Good location for accessing he Roseland Peninsula.
Guest from Truro stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstools is a lovely place to stay. It is quote remote and a bit hard to find but otherwise lovely. The only thing we could have used that was missing was a hair dryer.
Guest from Poulton-le-fylde stayed for 14 nights.
We were delighted with the cottage and all its home comforts. It was a joy to sit in the garden and we appreciated its quiet location. We hope to return to Toadstools again in the future.
Guest from Kendal stayed for 7 nights.
The refurbishments of the kitchen and lounge are excellent and added to the overall enjoyment of our stay. Would recommend without hesitation. Thank you to the owners who obviously care and have great style.
Guest from Sherston stayed for 3 nights.
We found the cottage easily. Directions were helpful. First impressions were spoiled by front steps covered with damp leaves and a smell of curry in the kitchen. On closer inspection we noted that the cooker hood / extractor is quite old and clogged. Probably should be replaced . Kitchen tap had been leaking for some time. Hence black staining on work surface. The house has a feel of a well loved and lived in home, which it obviously is. We enjoyed the multi fuel stove and the warmth of the sitting room. The main bedroom was delightful and we slept well during our stay. Bathroom well serviced , plenty of hot water. Very quiet hamlet. Within reach of all the good places to visit. We ate out for all lunches and dinners. Found local pubs and hotels very welcoming. Maps and info provided by owners very useful. Without wishing to be over critical , if it were our home we would renew some of the carpets , sand the kitchen table and fill the cracks...de clutter generally in order to let it. For all that we enjoyed our stay on the Roseland Peninsular !
Guest from Welford On Avon stayed for 7 nights.
A very comfortable cottage. Well furnished, beautiful fabrics but in need of a professional clean to bring it back to perfection. Beds very luxurious with top grade bedding. Secure, secluded and quiet garden. Kitchen well catered for but in need of a coat of paint. Chairs in lounge a little uncomfortable. We were only two.........not sure would be suitable for six people!!!...................but an absolute must for any dog!!!!
Guest from North Shields stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstools is a very charming cottage with a lovely garden. The Roseland area is very beautiful and peaceful - much quieter than other parts of Cornwall. Everyone we met was very friendly. We did run out of gas (a gas bottle) for the hob one day but the company resolved this quickly.
Guest from Derby stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstools is a lovely cottage with a fabulous garden and patio. Facilities were very good and the whole property well turned out and maintained. Location might be an issue for some as you literally have to use your car to get anywhere unless you want to go for evening walks across the cornfields.
Guest from York stayed for 7 nights.
Toadstools is a lovely quaint cottage with a lovely garden, but the annex room although looks lovely was very dusty as if it's not often used. Rural area and not to far to beach,shops etc but every journey has to be made by car.
Guest from stayed for 7 nights.
This is a lovely cottage in a very central location close to beaches. The garden was delightful which we were able to enjoy because the weather was great. The annex was very nicely done. However, we did feel it was a bit too 'shabby chic' in some respects. The kitchen sink area would benefit from a draining board. The chairs in the lounge were uncomfortable and the cushions needed replacing. The cottage did smell a little 'doggy' and damp when we first arrived. The cupboards in the bedroom smelt too damp to use. In the master bedroom the cupboard was being dried out when we arrived with a dehumidifier.The patio could have done with a sweep and we could not find a brush to do this. Given all this, we do feel the price was on the high side as we expected a little more luxury for the money.
Guest from Stroud stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely cottage and garden in a quiet hamlet within ten minutes of beautiful beaches and the sea. Well equipped kitchen with gas hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer and spacious larder. Excellent wi-fi which is great as little, if any mobile signal. Great pub at Ruan Lanihorne - The Kings Head. The Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick beach and The Quarterdeck at Nare Head/Carne beach worth a visit. Curgurrell farm shop five minutes away sells amazing fresh fish, crab, lobster and fresh veg. Great stay.
Guest from Worcester Park stayed for 7 nights.
A truly enchanting cottage- homely, comfortable and with lovely personal touches. A real home from home. The garden is the real jewel in the crown, however. Just beautiful and a really lovely place to relax after a day exploring the stunning coastline of the Roseland Peninsula. And for those who like to holiday with their four legged friends; it's perfect too! Lovely sandy beaches a 10min drive away for dogs who like to run free and feel the wind in their fur. And the endless coastal paths should be enough to tire any dog out. And it's all on your doorstep. You won't regret booking a holiday at Toadstools- and your dog will love you even more for it!
Guest from Glasgow stayed for 7 nights.
We enjoyed a lovely week at toadstools with mostly good weather. We focused our explorations largely in the Roseland peninsula, although we did venture out to St Ives and the Minack Theatre. We spent my birthday having a picnic at St Just and had dinner at the Driftwood Hotel. All in all, a lovely week in a special cottage.
Guest from Kendal stayed for 7 nights.
A beautiful cottage with a charming, pretty and private garden, we felt very at home here, there are lots of personal touches and the location is excellent for getting around the Roseland. When we arrived there was a problem with the boiler and we didn't have any heating or hot water but housekeeping were extremely helpful and it was sorted the same day that we reported it. If we had any criticisms and this is being very picky, the bathroom isn't up to the standard of the rest of the property and it would have been good to have instructions on the woodburner and other appliances. The cottage company were extremely efficient, sending us lots of local information before we left home.
