Set in a peaceful countryside location, yet only 15 minutes' mostly level walk to Perranporth's beach, independent shops and bars, The Rosery is a lovely traditional stone Cornish cottage which has recently been lovingly renovated.

Entry to the house is into the utility room which has a flagstone floor, sink, washing machine, tumble dryer, space for coats and shoes, and a separate downstairs WC. The kitchen is entered through a glass panelled door and has been thoughtfully and tastefully decorated to make the most of the old cottage features while also being light and comfortable.

Fully equipped, the kitchen is fitted with an induction range cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. There are ample wooden worksurfaces, a breakfast bar with two stools, a deep sink and slate tiled floor. A low doorframe and small step lead down into the open plan sitting and dining room.

A light and spacious room, the large table with eight chairs provides a sociable area to eat or play games. Deep window seats, a low beamed ceiling and slate floor retain the cottage's character and a door opens out from the dining room to the enclosed garden, perfect on summer days. The comfortable sitting room is furnished with a large grey corner sofa, dark blue armchair, TV with Amazon Firestick and DVD player, and a log burner for chillier days (the property is heated by oil central heating).

Wooden painted stairs ascend to the upper floor which has wooden floors throughout, three bedrooms and the bathroom. A double room (4'6" bed) with chest of drawers, large mirror and quirky copper pipe lamp enjoys garden and countryside views from the window. The second bedroom is furnished with two single beds immediately adjacent to each other (3' each), and clothes rails.

Up a high step and through a narrow door, is the large and light master bedroom. With windows on three walls making the most of the beautiful views, the room has a king-sized bed (5') and plenty of storage.

The bathroom, with lovely patterned floor tiles, is fitted with a free-standing roll top bath with shower attachment, separate large (step in) shower cubicle with rain shower head, WC, basin and heated towel rail.

Outside, the garden is laid to lawn with a stepping stone path down to the back gate and washing line. A bistro set by the dining room garden door offers a lovely place to sit out in the sun with a glass of wine and listen to the birdsong, and there's another seating area on a raised patio plus a wendy house for the children. An outside hot shower provides a place to rinse off after a day at the beach.

The garden, which is significantly higher at one end than the road below it, is fully enclosed, however children should be supervised when playing near the low fence. A parking area for two cars is at the bottom of the garden steps, and the house can either be accessed up these stone steps and through the garden, or along the road and through a gate to the house higher up.

The Rosery is in the hamlet of Bolingey, a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the seaside, and less than a five-minute stroll to The Bolingey Inn – a delightful 17th century pub serving food and local ales. There are many activities on the doorstep including beautiful walks, horse riding and golf, and Perranporth's three-mile expanse of soft golden sand and Atlantic swell is only one mile away.

Towels are included with this property (one bath towel and one hand towel per guest, plus a tea towel) however, if you'd like to hire any additional towels you can add these when placing your booking.

The property accepts one small dog. Dogs are charged at £35 per week, per pet. Please see our booking terms for details of our dog friendly terms and conditions. Dogs are not permitted on furniture or upstairs in this property.

  • Beach Life

    Perranporth boasts a beautiful three mile long sandy beach with undulating dunes, a tidal swimming pool built into the striking Chapel Rock, and rock pools that are perfect for paddling. Swim and surf in the big blue, explore caves and enjoy the space to stretch, run and breathe. Take a picnic for lazy hazy days in the dunes or take the dog and relish the three mile expanse of golden sand.

  • Culture and History

    St Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall, is said to have washed up on Perranporth’s shores, and the remains of his 6th century oratory can still viewed in the dunes. Perranporth was the site for two tin mines in years gone by and the inspiration for Winston Graham’s Poldark novels which were all written here. High above the beach the millennium sundial tracks Cornish time (approximately 12 minutes later than GMT).

  • Food and Drink

    From fine dining to fish and chips on the promenade, Perranporth has a wide array of food and drink, so you can treat yourself to time away from the kitchen. Share delicious tapas, try vegan street food, or enjoy great bar food in sunny gardens. Local takeaways include Indian, Chinese, Thai and pizza, and remember to leave room for an indulgent Cornish ice cream or post dinner local gin!

  • Get Active

    The north coast of Cornwall is made for adventure. In addition to the wild playgrounds of the beaches there are also loads of organised activities available too. Book lessons with a surf school, gallop a horse along the beach, and play tennis at beautifully maintained grass and hard courts. There’s also a links golf course in the dunes, hang-gliding, a bowling green, children’s play park and boating lake.

  • Local Attractions

    There’s plenty to see and do in the local area, without having to travel too far. Within a short drive of all our properties, visitors can pet farm animals and sample the local cyder at Healeys Cyder Farm, find out how ice cream is made (and of course treat yourself to some!) at Callestick Farm Cornish Ice Cream, and discover the ruins of St Piran’s Oratory in the sand dunes at Perranporth. Dairyland, with horse rides, farm animals, and a huge soft play area, is a great day out for families with young children, as is Lappa Valley Steam Railway with train rides and play park and exploring creatures of the deep at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium at Towan Beach.

  • Explore Cornwall

    Slightly further afield is The Eden Project with its famous biomes, the National Trust houses of Lanhydrock, Trelissick and Trerice, and the spectacular gardens of Glendurgan, Trebah and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From the rugged and dramatic north coast to the sheltered harbours of south coast fishing villages, everyone is bound to find a corner of Cornwall that captures their heart. Visit St Ives for cobbled streets and art galleries including the Tate St Ives, walk the causeway to St Michael’s Mount island off Marazion, and explore Falmouth’s fascinating maritime history. Padstow is a foodie’s heaven, while Truro boasts a stunning Gothic Revival cathedral and is the county’s shopping hub.
