Lovely comfortable cottage
Location is great, you can walk (20 min.) to a small shop and nice pub in Veryan, walk to the beach (20 min.) and if you like get right on the coastal path from there.
Tearoom only 5 minutes away. Cottage is nice when staying with teenagers, because of the two bedrooms with ensuite and living/kitchen just in between.
You can hear some traffic passing by, but not disturbing. Friendly owners.
Comfortable stay in a great location with a lovely hostess
The cottage was very comfortable, spacious, clean and well-presented. The hostess made us very welcome and has a lovely garden that you can explore. It’s a great location with a nice woodland path down to the beach and excellent privacy. The local beaches are walkable and attractive. There is a very nice mill just down the road where you can have a lovely evening meal.
A lovely cottage in rural Cornwall
The Studio was perfect for our break away and is very convenient having two bathrooms. The well stocked kitchen was great for self catering and the owners were very friendly coming to introduce themselves once we were settled. Facilities all worked well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location was perfect for visits to St Mawes and the Roseland area. The single beds in the second room were rather uncomfortable and there was a musty smell in the double bedroom however this did not ruin our stay.
Lovely private house near beaches.
Fantastic little studio, very well designed for 2 couples/families. Easy living, bedrooms well separated.
Small sunny private garden next to the beautiful manor in its own stunning gardens. Very welcoming.
Lovely holiday. Vases of flowers much appreciated. Access to the Manor House gardens appreciated to.
We thought some comfortable garden chairs would be a good addition even if it was just plastic chairs stacked somewhere.
I loved feeding the chickens and also exploring the gorgeous garden.
Peaceful and comfortable
We loved our stay at Crugsillick Studio. The property has been tastefully decorated and was very comfortable, nice beds and bed linen, comfortable lounge area, woodburner which we used every night during our February stay. There is a pretty garden and and it is in a very peaceful location with no close neighbours. The little touches of milk, flowers and wine that were left out for us upon our arrival made us feel very welcome. The owners are very friendly and did all they could to help us enjoy our stay, with lots of tips where to eat and where to go. You can walk from the property to the beach down a pretty footpath which our dog loved best of all! A fabulous relaxing place..
The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey in the east to the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters. A truly magnificent part of Cornwall, the Roseland is a wonderful place to spend a memorable holiday. From The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do. The area is an excellent centre for visiting Cornwall's famous gardens, most of the major gardens all lie within a 25 mile radius; and are particularly magnificent in the spring when the magnolias, rhododendrons and camelias are in flower.
The closest village to Crugsillick is Veryan - most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses. There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by the vicar, the Reverend Jeremiah Trist for his daughters and built in the round so that there were no corners where the devil could hide. A crucifix on the top of each one adds extra protection! Veryan has a children's playground, an excellent village shop and a good pub. Very close to Crugsillick is the lovingly restored Melinsey Mill which serves lunches and cream teas.
A couple of miles to the east, Portloe is considered one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Its steep sided valley has meant that it has managed to escape development over the years and many buildings differ little from when they were built. Sir John Betjeman said of Portloe "One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages". The Lugger Hotel has an excellent restaurant and the Ship Inn is also a good place to eat.
St Mawes is a lovely small town with lots of places to eat from smart hotels to fish and chips, small shops and a pretty harbour with opportunities for sailing, kayaking and fishing. St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Garden has a wonderful collection of tropical plants with lovely views down into the Harbour.
There are many pretty churches in the area but St Just-in-Roseland has, arguably, the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek surrounded by exotic trees and shrubs.
Portscatho overlooks the dramatic Gerrans Bay towards Nare Head. A quiet waterside village, Portscatho has a very pretty harbour, a good pub, an excellent general store, two modestly priced restaurants and three galleries. Above the closest beach, Porthcurnick, is the Hidden Hut - a well-known and excellent lunch, tea and ice cream venue. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists. More than anything, Portscatho is a place to relax.
Events on the Roseland get a bit busier in August when sailing regattas, carnivals and fun days take place in many villages and the waters of the Carrick Roads. Year round, though, it is the beauty of the coast here that brings people back again and again.
There are some stunning beaches around Gerrans Bay from Carne and Pendower in the east stretching round through Porthcurnick (Rosevine) and on to Towan and Porthbeor to the west, they are nearly all very accessible and have plenty of exposed sand at low tide and magical rock pools which can keep children engaged for hours. Most importantly compared to the hustle and bustle of the north coast they are comparatively empty!
