The hamlet of St Anthony-in-Roseland is surrounded by private and National Trust farmland. The St Anthony-in-Roseland area is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and a heritage coastline and apart from the 200 yards where the peninsular joins the mainland, is entirely surrounded by the sea.
The Roseland is one of the most unspoiled parts of the British Isles, with idyllic coastal and inland walks, delightful beaches strung along the coast making it an ideal West Country holiday location. It is renowned for its sailing which is some of the best in the British Isles.
In the spring bluebells carpet the woods, and the hedgerows are full of wild flowers which is why it is also a great area for walking, with walks along miles of estate and National Trust coastal footpaths provide the most breathtaking views, as well as sightings of seals, herons, buzzards and much more.
Portscatho Holidays have a number of Holiday Cottages in Trewince, Portscatho and Gerrans which are very near to St Anthony-in-Roseland on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall.
St Anthony in Roseland is just across the bay from the pretty village of St Mawes. The village of St. Mawes with its butcher, supermarket and pubs/restaurants is just across the bay, and can be reached by foot ferry (dependent on the weather and the date): http://www.falriver.co.uk/getting-about/ferries/place-ferry.
The pretty and friendly village of Portscatho, 3 miles back up the lane, is a popular holiday destination for visitors to Cornwall because it has retained its true Cornish character and is a great location for holidaymakers with many good facilities.
