Veryan Holiday Cottages


The Roseland village of Veryan is probably best known for the five Round Houses built in the early 19th century for the Trist, each with thatched roofs and a cross on top; they stand two at either end of the village and one in the centre. They are often said to have been built round so that there was no corner for the Devil to hide and that the crosses on the roofs were intended to drive the Devil away but there is little or no evidence for this!

Our holiday cottages in Veryan are also popular because of the village's location near the South West Coast Path, a well known route for keen walkers in Cornwall on the Roseland Peninsula. It also has some 1.5 miles of coast with sandy beaches, notably Carne, Pendower, and East & West Portholland Beaches. The village also has a Sports Pavilion with provision for tennis, cricket, bowls and a children’s playground. There is also an indoor bowls club. Carne Beacon can also be open to the public if a pre-booking appointment is made.

Veryan has a total of fifty-three Grade II, seven Grade II* and one Grade I listed buildings. The parish church of St Symphorian has an unusual plan with a tower south of the south transept and a north aisle. Parts of the church are Norman and others decorated in style. Melinsey Mill is situated within Veryan. The mill itself was built in 1565 and now the site stands as a tourist attraction which serves food.

The local pub, The New Inn offers a warm welcome with fine food and drink.

Veryan is located 12.5 miles to the South West of Truro, 12.5 miles to the South West of St Austell, 5 miles from Portscatho and 7 Miles from St Mawes.
