Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Whitecross, Cornwall your home away from home

The tiny hamlet of Whitecross is ideally located in the centre of the West Cornish peninsula. It is just 4 miles from Penzance on the south coast and 6 miles from St Ives on the north coast, making it easy to explore both lovely areas.

West Cornwall is ideal for walking, especially along the South West coastal path. There are a host of National Trust properties in this beautiful area and miles of winding country lanes to explore, all little more than a single car’s width. The highlight of the area is St Michael’s Mount, a historic stately home/castle built on a rock in Marazion Bay. Land’s End is also just a short drive from your holiday home in Whitecross, with its landmark signpost.

This sizeable town has plenty of shops, pubs and old houses along its main street.

The town looks across to the National Trust property of St Michael’s Mount with its grand castle/stately home and rock gardens.

St Ives

Sprawling up the hillside above its two main beaches, St Ives is a quaint Cornish village with tiny fishermen’s cottages, shops and art galleries lining the narrow streets. The town has been attracting artists for decades and the Tate Gallery opened here in 1993. The purpose-built building is as interesting as the artworks themselves, with spectacular sea views from the café terrace.

We had a lovely restful stay with no cooking ! plenty of good restaurants fairly close by. The welcome pack of goodies was a lovely thought and appreciated. The town and especially the Harbour are a fair walk away with some quite steep steps/ slopes to negotiate but remember this is typical in Cornish Resorts ! All in all a lovely clean, modern, large, peaceful apartment in a good location as a base for exploring Cornwall .

We immediately loved the place- is was quaint, clean , cosy and above all homely and we felt at immediately relaxed and at ease. It's location is excellent and is only 5 mins walk from the estuary and train station, or just 10 mins walk to the beach - an hours costal walk will take you right into St Ives. A mere 50 yards from Rosemundy Cottage is the Badger Inn public house. This is a very nice and welcoming pub with lovely food and atmosphere. Dogs are welcome at Rosemundy and our Collie 'Kira' immediately made friends with Bella and thoroughly enjoyed her stay too. Being dog friendly is a must for us and private garden is great for that 1st mornings freedom for any dog visitor. We will definitely be making a return visit to Rosemundy, and would wholeheartedly recommend it to family and friends. A lovely cottage, managed by lovely owners . Steve Heywood - Sept 12th-17th 2016
