With an enviable position above Porthallow, this beautiful farmhouse stands about half a mile up the hill from the enchanting, traditional Cornish seaside village of Porthallow. Sympathetically refurbished to provide superb accommodation for up to 11 guests plus a cot, this old farmhouse is superbly equipped and has views across the wild Lizard landscape to Falmouth Bay beyond. Its warm colour schemes give a relaxed, informal feel, the huge kitchen/dining-room with its cosy wood-burner being the focal point of the house. There are two flagstone-floored sitting-rooms, one with another wood-burner set inside the original stone inglenook fireplace. Upstairs the bedrooms are all light and spacious. The two front bedrooms have fabulous sea views and the family bathroom includes a luxurious jacuzzi bath and the fourth bedroom has versatile 'zip and link' beds and an additional single bed. The wheelchair accessible annexe offers a further bedroom with either a super king bed or two single beds and en suite wet-room, ideal for single level living. Outside there is a games-room, hot tub and gardens. Roskorwell Manor offers something for guests of all ages.
