About Rosslyn

Rosslyn is a pretty cob-walled holiday cottage quietly located in the centre of the picturesque old fishing village of St Mawes.
“Thank you very much for a lovely stay in your cottage again last half term - we had a fabulous time”. Poldermans family – regular quests
Now a fashionable holiday spot, St Mawes has long been sought after by the sailing community and familes looking for seeaside relaxation, lovely beaches and countryside, charming pubs & restaurants, walks and a King Henry VIII castle guarding the harbour entrance to Falmouth opposite.
Up steps behind the quayside and the old Victory Inn, Rosslyn's sunny private gardens face south overlooking the village towards the beach, the Percuil River and National Trust headland beyond.
There are pretty gardens front and back and a sunny barbecue patio with garden bench and table for eating 'al fresco'.
The shops and restaurants, pubs, quayside and waterfront are only a short walk down the steps, making this large and traditional fisherman's cottage a perfect holiday home.
St Mawes is a renowned beauty spot with facilities for sailing & fishing; sand & shingle beaches; crab catching on the quayside and shrimp catching in the rock pools; kayak rental; tennis; sailing boat and windsurf hire nearby; beautiful walks; subtropical gardens; Cornish cream teas; and close to Falmouth (by passenger ferry), Truro & St Austell for shopping, golf, horseriding, cinemas and leisure centres/ swimming pools.
