Home to St Mawes, the Roseland Peninsular is widely considered to be one of the UK’s most stunningly beautiful coastal regions. Bursting with charming fishing villages, beautiful beaches and a breath-taking natural backdrop, it’s the kind of place where epic family holidays come as standard.
St Mawes boasts an impressive year-round calendar of events, but it’s during the warmer summer months that most of the fun happens. So if you’re planning to head the way of Roseland while the weather’s at its best, consider coinciding your stay at our cottages with one of the following summer events:
Falmouth Week – August 7 to 17
One of the most popular and important events on the Cornwall calendar, Falmouth Week is an epic sailing event that brings an incredible 450 yachts to the Cornish coast. A fabulous spectacle and a week filled with enjoyable entertainment, it’s an event not to be missed, so although you’re enjoying your lovely cottage with sea views, get the family out to the harbour.
Philleigh Fayre – August 5
The quintessential family day out held once a month during the summer, the Philleigh Fayre returns on August 5 and promises the usual compendium of games and activities. From the famed egg-throwing competition to sheaf pitching to archery and even a spot of sheep and duck racing, it’s a day filled with great games, fabulous food and all-things uniquely Cornish.
Fal River Walk – September 27
Another hugely important event, the annual Fal River Walk takes place this year on September 27 and will once again be held to raise money for local and national charities. A unique opportunity to take in the sights of the River Fal while aiding a good cause.
Foraging at Philleigh Way with 7th Rise – September 8
Last but not least, why not get on-board with the latest gourmet food craze and learn the art of foraging from the masters? Expert classes held by veterans at Court Farm in Philleigh take newcomers through the art and process of finding and identifying wild food and edible plants, one step at a time.
