Make a holiday cottage in Roche your home away from home

Situated in the heart of China Clay country, Roche is a charming little village perhaps best known for its unusual granite outcrop of the same name. Along with its connections to China Clay, Roche is also very near to the Eden Project, Cornwall’s most visited attraction. It is also just a few miles north of beautiful St. Austell and the breathtaking Carlyon Bay. Naturally, tourists visit Roche to enjoy the local scenery and lovely Cornwall weather. Roche – pronounced Roach – might be an inland location but nowhere in Cornwall is far from the sea, so this pretty little village is an ideal base for exploring the whole county.

HomeAway has a number of cosy holiday cottages in Roche that can provide visitors with a comfortable stay in Cornwall. These holiday homes start at around £200 per week and can accommodate anywhere from two to four people. Offering a range of amenities such as a generously sized garden, internet access, and glorious views, Roche holiday cottages make a perfect couple's retreat or family accommodation option.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: There are few excuses to stay indoors in sunny Cornwall. The area round Roche is covered with walking and cycling paths to explore. Most visitors enjoy coastal walks along Carlyon Bay and touring the area around St. Austell on foot. Along with all the amazing scenery, this is also an excellent location for birdwatching.

-Beaches: Visitors staying in Roche holiday cottages are less than ten miles from three beautiful beaches. The closest is Carlyon Bay, followed by Porthpean Beach and Pentawan Sands. Carlyon is the largest of the three beaches and is a very popular place for walking and sightseeing. Porthpean and Pentawan are better suited for swimming and sunbathing. Pentawan is a favourite spot for both tourists and locals, and boasts lovely holiday accommodation.

-Culture: Roche is located seven miles from the Eden Project. Holding the title as the most popular visitor attraction in Cornwall, the project consists of a series of biomes that are home to plants from all around the world. It is well suited for children and adults alike. Also nearby is the China Clay Museum and Country Park, which provides a fascinating look into the history of the China Clay industry in St. Austell and Cornwall.

-Golf: As one of the major attractions in Cornwall, it should come as no surprise that there are several major courses near Roche. The best rated is Carlyon Bay Golf Club, which is just a short drive from most holiday cottages in Roche. The spectacular 18-hole course is perched on a cliff overlooking the beach and the sea. Porthpean Golf Club is also quite popular, as is St. Austell Golf Club and St Austell Bay Golf.

Weather in Roche

Temperatures in Roche are mild, peaking over 20°C in the summer months and dipping to a high temperature of 9°C in the winter. May through October is generally considered the best time to visit the area, as the cooler temperatures from November through April are also accompanied by heavier rainfall.

Travel to Roche

Most visitors who have booked holiday accommodation in Roche choose to drive there. The village is six miles north of St. Austell and lies along the B3274. Despite its small size, it is possible to reach Roche via public transport. Visitors should take a train to St. Austell. From there, a regular bus service takes passenger up to the village. The bus journey takes around 30 minutes.

Great Little Bungalow: Very clean : Fresh Smelling : Warm and Cosy.

4 of 5
2 of us and our well behaved Staffy stayed. Firstly, the property was very clean and fresh smelling. All linen and towels were in good condition and well aired. It’s a lovely warm little house that’s really dog friendly. It has large and very secure gardens. Being a working farm it’s lovely to wake up to the noise of cattle and the smell of the country and a tractor passing the gate several times each day. The property has a traditional Rayburn cooker, great for drying off clothes, keeping your take away warm or indeed cooking. We cooked a meal on it, what a great memory and experience. The owner left a welcome pack of milk, jam, shortbread and fresh flowers, how lovely. The property is pet friendly so please expect a traditional Cornish farm workers bungalow and not the Ritz Hotel. The position is the main reason we chose it was it’s in a Central location so head off north one day or to either coast another day, Perfect. It’s well equipped and quite roomy and will comfortably sleep six if you had a family. There’s a huge garden or an even larger secure dog excercise area with a small lake to explore too. The help/visitors book is gold, lots of useful info and a comical read, it should be published. The bungalow has an out building so if you had a few dogs they could live in it, massive and safe building. The outdoor dog shower is brilliant for showering of sandy dogs after a day out at the beach. This little place is a gem providing that your a family and pet loving people and not looking for a Handsel and Gretal cottage or a fairy tale. We are already discussing a return in 2019. Great owners, no hassle and respect your privacy. Great value for money.
