Wheal Rose is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a quiet lane 15 minutes walk to Portheras Cove – a lovely sandy cove and one of the last remaining truly local Cornish beaches. Seals are a common sight here and dogs are permitted on the beach. On your walk to the beach you join the South West Coastal Path which takes you eastwards towards Zennor and St Ives on one of the wildest and most beautiful stretches of coast in the country. To the west the path passes through historic mining scenery to St. Just, Sennen and Lands End.
Wheal Rose is owned by the Montgomery family who all enjoy holidaying here on a regular basis. We feel fortunate to own a house in such an historic and unique area and hope that you will enjoy staying here as much as we do. You can wander to the beach, walk the Coastal Path in either direction, explore the historic tin mines, discover the local ancient stones and monuments, surf at Sennen, spend an evening at the open-air Minack Theatre or simply relax with a book in the garden.
In land, Morvah Schoolhouse Tearoom and Art Gallery is a quarter of a mile walk across the fields along the footpath opposite the house. Historic Penzance, with Newlyn harbour, some fantastic fishmongers and the Newlyn Gallery, is six miles and St. Ives, with The Barbara Hepworth Garden, Tate St Ives, wonderful restaurants, galleries and shops all surrounding its pretty harbour, is ten miles. There are two pubs within two miles and a shop within a mile and a renowned gastropub – The Gurnard's Head - within four miles.
Many of our guests come back time and again to relax and enjoy the spectacular beauty of this real, undiluted, Cornwall.
