About The Rosevine
An away from it all self-catering holiday with hotel facilities - perfect family holiday material!
Child-friendly self-catering accommodation in the extreme - and a ridiculously tasteful one at that. The Rosevine is almost too good to be true - gorgeous, elegant and comfortable rooms, stunning lounges, amazing playroom, wonderful restaurant, lovely gardens and right by the beach ... off you go!
If you were to sit down and think “Right, if I could create the perfect holiday what would it comprise?” odds are you’d come close to Tim and Hazel Brocklebank’s The Rosevine – come close as I think they’ve probably exceeded the essentials on your list. The Rosevine is a welcoming family-friendly retreat and a very stylish one at that. Located on the south coast of Cornwall, overlooking Gerrans Bay and Portscatho, this house is set in two acres with a large lawn for relaxing on, a separate children’s play area with loads to do and it’s just a short stroll to a child-friendly, sandy beach.
The lovely part Georgian house is split into 12 self-contained apartments, suites and studios, which in some instances have separate bedrooms. All have sitting and dining areas and discreet well-equipped kitchen facilities, as well as a flatscreen tv and dvd player. There are sea-views, large French doors that open onto private decked terraces, comfortable beds with Egyptian cotton bed linen and good toiletries to enjoy.
And as this is a family friendly retreat you also get the fantastic benefit of tremendous staff happy to provide you with delicious meals if that cooking urge just isn’t kicking in. The dining room is open most days from 9am until supper where delicious rustic style food is served 6 times a week. Children’s food is very considered, very tasty and always goes down a treat – the house chefs even make their own ketchup.
You can shop from the deli list, where you can order essentials, such as milk, bread, pots of home made jam, breakfast cereals, locally cured meats, snack boxes or picnic hampers for the beach, wine from the house selection?and prepared dishes that can be heated up for an evening in. So you see you have a choice; B & B, self cater, dine in or dine ‘out’ in the lovely Restaurant, whilst the kids get to enjoy the Den or sleep safely with your baby monitor on alert. Monitors are available to borrow, otherwise bring your own trusty stead!
Downstairs the cosy drawing room, with wood burning stove, provides a perfect adult zone – you may just get to flick though a paper whilst the kids get to enjoy the decadent and shockingly elegant children’s den next door (I aspire to it!) equipped with toys, games, a large screen tv, books, dvd’s and an X Box. There’s also a sunny morning room that adjoins the dining room. Together with wi-fi access, an indoor swimming pool, and the 2 acres of grounds, there’s plenty of stuff to be getting on with and space for everyone to do their thing.
Within those 2 acres there’s a large lawn for relaxing on and a lower field for the kids to run wild; the garden is equipped with trampoline, little wooden play house, a climbing frame with rope ladders and swing and a Little Tykes toddlers climbing frame.
And don't forget the gate through which you can take the short stroll to Porthcurnick beach metioned above. Owned by the National Trust, it’s large and sandy and perfect to while away sand castle building hours.
It's worth noting that the house can be booked in it's entirety for large party gatherings - so birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or simply a "let's hang out together" weekend can all be accommodated. See the web-site for contact details.
