  • Ultimate 100 British Hotels

    We had the pleasure of a visit from Susan D'Arcy from The Sunday Times in May for this top 100 hotels guide - here's what she says about The Rosevine: "Halfway between St Austell and Falmouth, you'll find the magical Roseland Peninsula...The low-key luxe of this white-fronted Georgian mansion blends in perfectly."  Read more here.

  • The Telegraph Travel

    "The hotel was created with families in mind. Liveable rooms where you can fix snacks any time of day; the wide array of facilities and equipment to borrow for days out; and the daily children’s tea will keep families happy whatever the weather." Telegraph expert rating 9/10.

  • The view from The Rosevine in Cornwall

    Conde Nast Traveller

    Sally Shalam's Great British Breaks: "This month, our happy wanderer roams from Cornwall to Cumbria in search of outdoor eating and drinking for crazy days when the sun shines...  When you're done beach-feasting with the locals (no fools, the Cornish, they come from all corners of the county), simply retreat to your coastal boutique hideway."  Read this article from July 2014 issue here.

  • Angels and Urchins

    "The best of both worlds...  Sometimes, especially if you have smaller children, you want to be able to use the facilities of a wonderful spoiling hotel while taking advantage of the space and privacy of your own cottage."  The Rosevine and our self-catering cottage The Lookout has been picked by Angels and Urchins as one of its favourites and describes us as "relaxed Cornish chic."  Take a look here.

  • Cornwall Today

    "I was utterly charmed to arrive at The Rosevine near Portscatho and see the stately beauty of two planted stone urns framing the entrance, and set beside, a colurful tumble of children's buckets and spades.  In many ways this sums up the ethos and appeal of this little sanctuary on the Roseland Peninsula...The Rosevine gives anyone the opportunity to truly relax and experience the very best of what Cornwall has to offer."  Read the full article here.

  • Family Traveller

    "This luxury boutique hotel has been designed with families in mind and with its beachside location, friendly attentive staff and make-yourself-at-home mentality, we're struggling to find a reason why not to go...  Everything is done to make families feel welcome.  Children have free run of the house - they aren't afraid of mess at The Rosevine - they simply ask that you tidy up once you've finished."  Read the full article here.

  • Cornwall Life

    "It’s fair to say Cornwall boasts many beautiful places to stay, but The Rosevine, tucked away on the idyllic Roseland Peninsula, is a bit special...  From the moment you enter the elegant Georgian manor house, affectionately known as ‘The Big House by The Sea’, and head to the cosy drawing room with its wood burning stove, you feel relaxed and ready to enjoy this heavenly slice of the county."

  • Sunday Times 100 Holidays

    "We all hanker after a secret seaside hotel we can call our own.  That place might just be the Rosevine, on the Roseland Peninsula - a corner of Cornwall that looks as if it was dreamt up by Enid Blyton.  Stay in the main house... or at a self-catering cottage in the grounds...  Then there's the beach: Porthcurnick, two minutes' walk from the hotel, and almost private."  Read the full article here.

  • Away with the Kids

    "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."

  • Junior Magazine

    "This classy coastal retreat is a Georgian house divided into 12 apartments and suites, with a sandy beach just minutes from the garden gate. The Rosevine also hits the spot with its excellent facilities."

  • Western Morning News

    "Where self catering meets luxury family hotel, you get the best of both worlds, with no compulsion to do anything at all, and all the freedom to choose as the moment takes you."

  • Take The Family

    "The perfect functioning mix of incredible hospitality, total luxury, superb service, all within an order of relaxed and informed cheeriness...Already the word is that you will need to book early."

  • Baby Hampshire Baby Surrey

    "Sometimes you come across a place that's a little bit of heaven on earth; this is what the Rosevine is for parents with little ones."

  • Angels & Urchins

    "We can't wait to try The Rosevine - a fabulous sounding apartment/hotel crossover on South Cornwall's beautiful Roseland peninsula. This promises to be a stylish relaxed family beach option."

  • The Observer

    "Surrounded by palm trees and pebble hurling distance from the beach...there is a nicely fitted out children's lounge or family room, with a huge toy cupboard and big tv. This cosy room is close enough to the dining room for younger guests to peel  off when they get bored at the dinner table...but the real selling point is that the family suites come with little kitchens and dining areas, the cooking facilities also mean that joys of joys, that you can make your own early morning breakfasts when your toddler wakes up at 5.30am baying for Coco Pops."

  • Alastair Sawdays Special Places to Stay

    "A super smart family bolthole on the Roseland peninsula, with views that tumble across trim lawns and splash down to the sea...a small oasis where guests of all ages can have great fun."

  • The Telegraph

    "We like the way Tim and Hazel have torn apart an old fashioned hotel and created a comfortable and stylish family orientated retreat...The Rosevine describes its dinner menu as rustic, but what it offers is a modern take on country dishes using seasonal produce cooked to a high standard."

  • The Guardian

    "Gerrans Bay is one of the few corners of seaside Cornwall that could still be described as undiscovered...The new child friendly Rosevine offers suites and apartments, a restaurant, play room and indoor pool."
