B&B stays in Spring from £122 for a Slate Room 01872 580 206


There is so much to do on our doorstep that it is hard to choose some top picks, however a perfect spring day residing on the Roseland would include; waking up with the early morning sunshine, strolling to the beach (Porthcurnick is just a few hundred yards  down the lane) for a post breakfast dose of salty sea air accompanied by a hot coffee and perhaps a camera to capture the peaceful and perfect start to the day.

Back for breakfast enjoyed overlooking the sea before packing up the family and friends into the car and ‘commuting’ to nearby Falmouth on the Fal River ferry. Enjoy group paddle boarding lessons (Try WESUP for lessons, hire and trips) to enjoy the Cornish coast from a completely different angle. Once warm and dry stroll into the harbour town to enjoy excellent coffee (Our top pick is Espressini) an exhibition at the fantastic Maritime Museum or simply stroll the streets and enjoy the boutiques and boat views from the many piers.

Once you have built up an appetite, time to head to Argal Lake on the outskirts of town. There you will find plenty of picnic areas and vistas to enjoy an al fresco lunch. (Ask staff for details on our picnic hampers).  After lunch enjoy a walk around the circumference of the lake not missing the chance to walk over the dam or enjoy the play area for those with a little bit more energy!
The Rosevine Hotel Garden

If the sun is still shining high a couple of late afternoon options enroute back to The Rosevine include, taking in the beautiful bluebells at Enys Gardens in nearby Penryn. Cornwall is renowned for its breath-taking bluebell fields and April/May is the best time to enjoy. Another option is to drive to Truro and enjoy a walk around Malpas park. This is a popular recreation site for many locals including a play area, running track, cricket pitch, football fields, waterside walk and a couple of pubs along the way! Malpas is a wonderful place to enjoy an early evening stroll with a pint of local ale and a packet of crisps overlooking the estuary.  There are also many Great Gardens of Cornwall, fabulous places at this time of year to learn about the Plant Hunters that make Cornwall’s gardens so special.  The closest to The Rosevine are Trelissick, Trewithen, Caerhays and Lamorran.

The best way to end the day? Food! Asparagus, fresh fish or of course spring lamb; the seasonal sensations rustled up by our house kitchen never fail to delight. Take your time and indulge in good food, good wine and relax. You must try a Cornish G&T for a pre-or post-dinner aperitif, we stock at least 5 varieties of gin at our bar however our favourite is  Tarquins Gin made on the North Coast. Cheers!
