Higher Roskorwell

Higher Roskorwell is a wonderful 18th century cottage now lovingly restored and extended into a cosy family size home, nestling between fields on the Lizard Peninsula and approached via a bridleway that connects with the Cornish coastal path. It offers guests all the benefits of modern living whilst enjoying its extensive views in a beautiful rural seclusion.

The hallway still has the old wash copper in the corner and the flagged slate floor is ideal for kicking off sandy or muddy boots after a great day out. It houses the washing machine and tumble dryer plus a separate freezer and picnic bag if you need it.

Beyond is the downstairs bathroom with the huge carefully restored Edwardian rolltop bath and brass towel rail, hand basin and toilet. The driftwood mirror is made from wood collected from Porthallow beach and the old bottles on display were all found in the garden.
