    “In the descriptive for the cottage it states that there is a shop less than one mile away.”

    This in inaccurate - the nearest shop is about three miles away. There is no mention that the roads around the cottage may be flooded if there are high spring tides which there were during our visit. If we had arrived fifteen minutes later than we did then we not have been able to gain access to the cottage at all. Quite an important point but not mentioned. Also there were no instructions on how to separate the recycling and previous guests had mixed it all up and put it in the bag and box ...

Also there were no instructions on how to separate the recycling and previous guests had mixed it all up and put it in the bag and box. The refuse collectors refused to take it away and were not happy at all.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Castle Cottage. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned in order to help yourselves and reassure future guests.​ We have amended the website description to make it clearer that the nearest local shop is a short drive into Tregony. Due to some recent freak weather prior to your stay, a combination of high and spring tides plus strong south winds did on this occassion cause the road to flood during your visit. This is very unusual and has not happened in the previous 13/14 years. Due to the estuary opposite the cottage the road can be liable to surface water dependent on tides, although this is unpredictable and infrequent the surface water soon clears. With regards to the recycling, the boxes show clearly what goes where, we can only apologise that the previous guests did not action this correctly. Despite the points raised we do hope you enjoyed your visit to Cornwall. Owner relations

The property

Escape to an other-worldly paradise at the idyllic Castle Cottage.

Hidden away in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this pretty cottage is on the edge of Ruan Lanihorne, a tiny village on the Roseland Peninsula.

The immediate surroundings are lush and green with spectacular walking and cycling trails on the doorstep.

There is a good foodie pub in the village serving lunches and dinners in the garden in the summer or in front of a roaring fire in the cooler months.

Local shops a short distance away at Tregony.

Don't worry beach lovers there is a mile long stretch of sand at Gerrans Bay, just ten minutes drive away; with parking and easy access it is a good spot for swimmers.

The Roseland Peninsula provides stunning scenery with wooded valleys and creeks, beautiful countryside and pretty villages clinging to the cliff sides.

Walking the coastal path is an excellent way to discover the area so bring your walking boots and amble from St Just in Roseland to St Mawes for a spot of lunch on the waterfront.

This fashionable coastal village has the air of the Mediterranean from the harbour you can also hop on a passenger ferry across the water to Falmouth for some retail therapy and cafe culture.

Truro, the county capital can also be reached with ease; a small cathedral city there are a wide range of shops, restaurants, galleries, a theatre, cinema and a museum to entertain.

With charm and character, Castle Cottage offers cosy accommodation for six.

The sitting room is awash with pretty fabrics and contemporary art contrasting with the sleek kitchen dining room behind.

A stable door opens to the sheltered courtyard at the back of the cottage, the perfect spot for soaking up some rays or a civilised soiree.

About the location

TRURO

St Agnes 8.6 miles; Falmouth 11 miles; Redruth 11.5 miles, Newquay 13.6 miles, Eden Project 18 miles, Lizard Peninsula 18 miles, St Ives 25 miles, Land's End 36 miles..

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
