Roseland Peninsula holidays guarantee to locate you at the heart of one of most stunning stretches of coastline in the whole of Cornwall. Encompassing a number of towns and villages including St Mawes and St Just, the Roseland Peninsula is a tranquil place to enjoy holidays in Cornwall.
The starting point of the Roseland Peninsula is often debated but the clear finishing point is the Fal Estuary where you’re spoilt to some of the most dramatic views on the stretch. Marvel at the beauty as you look across the estuary to Falmouth on the other side. You can even jump aboard the St Mawes ferry and cross the estuary for a day out, where you’ll find the National Maritime Museum and much more.
St Mawes itself is quaint fishing village with the focal point being the picturesque harbour, a must visit during Roseland Peninsula holidays. St Mawes castle was originally built during the reign of Henry VIII to protect the UK from an invasion by Spain and France but today provides a fascinating insight into the historic battles that took place here, while providing unique views across the estuary.
During a holiday on the Roseland Peninsula be sure to visit as many of the wonderful beaches that line this stretch of coastline as you can. St Mawes features both Tavern and Summers Beach that are ideally suited for family days out, while Great Molunan is suited for romantic strolls. Be sure to explore the full length of the Roseland Peninsula, there are plenty of hidden coves and beaches that are perfect for making your friends and family jealous when you return from your holiday with pictures.
The coastline is part of the South West Coast Path and has many popular walks with far-reaching views out to sea. One of the most popular is a 5.7 miles walk across Nare Head which can be a challenge, but you are rewarded with panoramic views. Head further inland and wander the wooded countryside, and lush green fields. There aren’t many better feelings than walking through the Cornwall countryside during a warm summer’s day before heading to the coastline to watch the sun slowly set beyond the horizon.
