The Roseland Peninsula is an ideal location for a relaxing family holiday in a beautiful location close to pretty villages and sandy beaches with many lovely National Trust and other gardens nearby. We have beautiful sandy and safe beaches nearby.
The closest beach is Pendower Beach, which is a lovely 25 minute walk from Pippin or 15 minute walk from Cow Parsley Cottage, down country lanes and footpaths. It is also accessible by car.
Carne Beach joins up with Pendower Beach at low tide which makes for a lovely circular walk along the beach and back via the coastal path. In summer there is often an ice cream van by the slipway on Carne Beach and a pop-up tea room in the National Trust car park and by Pendower Beach. If you feel like a real treat, you could have a cream tea at the Nare Hotel!
Porthcurnick Beach is the next easily accessible beach south along the coast towards Portscatho and St Mawes. It can be accessed on foot via the coastal path, or by car and has the added advantage of being right next to The Hidden Hut. At low tide it is possible to walk along Porthcurnick Beach to Portscatho Beach and back along the road.
Portloe is a beautiful little fishing village up the coast, and well worth a visit.
Towan Beach on St Anthony's Head has a long stretch of golden sand and is well worth a visit.
Other nearby beaches include the large sandy family beaches at Falmouth and Gorran Haven.
