All About Our Five Star Holiday Lodges in Cornwall

Read about Rosehill Lodges and our key features. With just ten lodges, Rosehill is a small exclusive holiday location set within a stunning wooded valley in the seaside village of Porthtowan on the North Cornish coastline.

The bespoke lodges are situated in a sheltered woodland valley and are just five minutes walk from Porthtowan’s sandy beach, bars and restaurants.

Who are we and what can we offer you?

In the design and concept of the lodges, John and Pauline, the owners of Rosehill until September 2023 were determined to create something really special. Breaking away from the more traditional self-catering holiday cottage, their mission was to combine the very finest luxury lodge accommodation coupled with the highest of environmental standards. They achieved their goal in 2008 with the build of a small number of high spec lodges in an idyllic woodland setting in the small coastal village of Porthtowan on the North Cornish Coastline. The lodges and business have been awarded the very highest Five Star Gold Award by Visit England as well as the top Gold Award by the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Two very tangible awards and very unique for holiday accommodation. Each and every year since 2008 Rosehill has again achieved these awards. Rosehill has a great team dedicated to maintaining the highest of standards to ensure your holiday is the best ever.

Rosehill were one of the very first 5-star hand built Eco Lodge sites in the UK.  and utilising the best quality build products available at the time plus boasting hot tubs under cover. A careful and thoughtful balance of Eco values combined with luxury.

More about the location, village and beach at Porthtowan

Park up, relax, and leave your car behind. A short five minutes’ walk from our small wooded site gets you to our local beach, village shops, bars and restaurants.

Our local beach is sandy and has been awarded Blue Flag status for exceptional quality and cleanliness. Patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during busy periods, Porthtowan’s beach provides great surf for the more adventurous and plenty of rock pools to explore for the little ones. For those looking for a perfect surfing holiday our beach ticks all the right boxes. Each lodge has an outside drench shower so that you can wash the sand and salt off at the end of a busy day on the beach. Kids and surfers love the outdoor shower.

A variety of activities can be discovered nearby.

For walking holidays in Cornwall, Rosehill’s location is great. Just five minutes’ walk gets you to the South West Coastal Path and the dramatic Atlantic coastline. During spring and summer the flowers and bird life along the coastal path are amazing. In the winter months, deserted beaches, storm-watching, feeling the sea-spray on your face is so exhilarating. For cycling holidays in Cornwall, the coast to coast trail is literally just a ten minutes cycle ride from Rosehill.

Total relaxation is what holidays are all about. At the end of the day unwind in your own personal hot tub spa being gently massaged by bubbles and jets for a luxurious experience. Alternatively, you may choose to dine al-fresco under glass covered decking (whatever the weather), snuggle up in luxurious super- king size beds or just watch the flames dancing lazily around in your log burner. Your holiday in Cornwall will be perfect.

We believe that top quality accommodation can go hand in hand with green sustainability. As an alternative to the traditional self catering cottage in Cornwall, each bespoke lodge has been hand built by local skilled craftsmen, on site, here within Porthtowan village. Cornish larch from sustainable woodland being the main material used in the construction. With grass roofs, solar panels, log burners and the ultimate in insulation our eco-lodges are warm and cosy in winter as well a cool in the hot summer months.

For families or couples, for short breaks or longer holidays, we believe Rosehill Lodges offers you the ultimate as a holiday destination on the coast of Cornwall. We look forward to giving you a very warm welcome.
