Cornish Seaside Holiday Cottages

At Tantallon St Just-in-Roseland we are near many of the Cornish Gardens, the furthest is under an hour's drive and close enough to take in at least some of the many interesting events happening this Summer in Cornwall. Our cottage on the Lizard, Hill House, Gwenter is exceptionally well equipped. It is in a peaceful rural setting with fabulous panoramic views towards Kennack Sands with Lizard point beyond.
