What the media says about Rosehill Lodges..
"This is a key point. The most important requirement for this type of tourist facility is that it’s a seriously nice place to stay, which is why VisitBritain’s National Quality Assurance Scheme has awarded it five stars. Nestled in a little sheltered wooded valley, which is quite unusual this close to the exposed north coast, the site is enchanting. Each lodge has a hot tub, wet suit wash, barbecue and broadband access. The finish has been considered to the finest detail; standing in the bathroom you could be in a top hotel anywhere in the world."
"Our accommodation was Rosehill Lodges, a development of turf-roofed cabins that attempt to strike a balance between "green" and "luxury", but lean towards the latter. Sophie took one look at the hot tub on the veranda and sniffed: "That's not very eco-friendly." But Maddy was already stripping off and getting in. Another goal for me. Sophie soon followed. Despite this, Rosehill won her over with its efficient recycling systems and its amazing insulation that slashes heating requirements. There was also the fitted kitchen and the sitting area with log burner and wide-screen TV."
The Sunday Times
"Close to the Blue Flag beach of Porthtowan, in north Cornwall, Rosehill (01209 891920) is a new eco-retreat with 10 cosy lodges set in three acres of woodland. Each has a log burner, a grass roof, an outdoor spa bath, WiFi access and a DVD player; sand dunes, rock pools and clifftop paths are all on your doorstep. "

"Hidden in woodlands just a stone's throw from a stunning Cornish beach, the new Rosehill Lodges at Porthtowan are just the ticket for families or groups of friends looking for a rural retreat. Co-managed by former Haircut 100 guitarist Graham Jones, the grass-roofed eco lodges sleep four or six people and come with log-burners, outdoor Hot Tub Spa and glass-covered decking."
The Sunday Times
"This is an ideal spot for either a romantic break or a family holiday — children will love the surfing. The environmental message is clear, but you won’t be made to feel guilty if you fail to recycle the occasional item. Not that you’re likely to forget, when even the roof above your head is green."

"Landscape gardening in Cornwall might not be the obvious career move for an international 80’s pop superstar, but it’s one that Graham Jones, lead guitarist of Haircut 100 has never regretted.
Now working as the assistant manager of Rosehill Lodges in Porthtowan, the Love Plus One star swapped his cricket knits and chinos for wellington boots and galoshes more than two decades ago."
