A PERFECT SUMMER DAY
Most days you will want to spend on the beach, dosing up on essential vitamin D, sea air and ice cream! There are so many jaw dropping spots to spend lazy days on the beach, The Roseland have ample and there is no need to go far before you stumble onto sand! (The nearest from The Rosevine is just a few hundred yards). If you want to brush up on surfing head to the north coast for the larger waves and hire shops a plenty. (We recommend Porthtowan, a great beach for safe surfing and a secret sea pool accessible at low tide – See Tris Surf Shop for board and suit hire), for canoeing, swimming, sailing and paddle boarding the South Coast is ideal. Porthcurnick Beach is just a stone’s throw from the hotel and is clear, calm and one of the most beautiful on the Peninsula.
Feeling lazy and want a break from sunbathing and paddling at Porthcurnick? Head back to the garden to enjoy a leisurely lunch with chilled white wine and a side order of garden games. Grab a book or newspaper from the lounge and head back to the beach for an afternoon of relaxation.
We are not all that far from the end of England here on The Roseland Peninsula and it is a fantastic area to discover while you are staying nearby. Channel your inner Poldark or Demelza and take a day trip west towards Land’s End, en route you will discover mining heritage sites, the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, St Michael’s Mount and the Minack Theatre, both of which need to be seen to be believed. Also, worthy of a stop is the very impressive and recently refurbished art deco lido in Penzance. This incredible sea water pool is rather impressive and a very safe and family friendly place to enjoy a dip. Land’s End itself is worth a trip at least once, with its family attractions and spectacular coastal walks, however if you are looking for something a little less energetic, take one of the very popular vineyard tours at Polgoon vineyard.
The best way to end a summer’s day? A BBQ of course! The hotel hosts regular BBQ evenings out in the garden, fantastic for families to meet and children to play in the surroundings with new friends. Serving up fresh fish, homemade burgers, local sausages and many other favourites. Enjoy the balmy evenings looking out over the sea, post sunset move inside to finish your book in the lounge with a nightcap. Bliss.
