4 bed house set in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to unspoilt beach
About Montgomery Family
Wheal Rose is owned by the Montgomery family. We bought the cottage in early 2016 after falling in love with the local area for its outstanding beauty and wildness. In our opinion it is one of the last few remaining unspoilt corners of Cornwall. We all holiday here on a regular basis, both together as a family and individually with friends. When we're there, we enjoy long walks along coastal path, returning home to big hearty fishy suppers, watching the sunset from the kitchen table. Our favourite time to visit is in the winter when the sea is at it's most dramatic, crashing on the rocks. But you can't beat a long day in the summer on the beach, stumbling back up to the house just as it's getting dark, feeling sun-kissed and satisfied. We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely cottage and hope that you have as many happy times there as we do.

Comfortable house in top location
Wheal Rose - just perfect
We had a magical week in this gorgeous house. Wonderfully secluded, the highlight was being able to walk to an amazing beach. The house exceeded our expectations. It was clean, cosy, big enough for adults and children to spread out. White company sheets were also a treat! The pictures do not do it justice. We found masses to do and the house recommendations were perfect. We were most disappointed to come home!

The Lands End Peninsular is well known for ancient stones and monuments which are scattered all over the local moorland area with a historic trail starting at Pendeen. Below are some of our favourite attractions:
Portheras Cove – our lovely unspoilt sandy local beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round.
Sennen Cove – beautiful surfing beach with lifeboat station, Roundhouse Gallery and Craft Shop, beach restaurant, cafes, surf shot and surf school. Parking at harbour car park, beach car park or cliff top car park.
Porthcurno - long beach beside the Minack Theatre and accessed from a large car park or by foot from the Coastal Path.
Pednvounder – spectacular beach next to Porthcurno, accessed from the Coastal Path at Treen and with a steep walk down and a 20 ft scramble at the base – be careful with very young children!
The Historic Tin Mines of Geevor and Levant are close by at Pendeen which has a lighthouse, a village shop and 2 pubs.
St Just – Centre of the old mining district with several art galleries.
Zennor – an unspoilt village on the road to St. Ives with a small local history museum, granite church and pub.
St Ives, with the famous Tate Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden, is a very popular artist colony with a beautiful harbour and beaches.
The Penlee Museum, Penzance has mostly 19th century Newlyn School Art. The Newlyn Gallery is nearby.
Lands End is much commercialised now but worth a visit – some interesting displays and spectacular cliff top scenery. There are firework displays every Tuesday and Thursday evenings in August.
St Michael’s Mount – Home of Lord St Levan. Visit the mount by foot at low tide and by ferry boats at high tide.
The famous Minack Theatre at Porthcurno is not far and there are performances there from Easter until September. It is also open every day for the museum and coffee shop. The beach there is fabulous.
Mousehole – Picturesque fishing village with good pubs and restaurants.
Lamorna Cove – small fishing cove, The Wink Pub and cove café.
Porthgwarra – a small fishing cove between Porthcurno and Lands End. Have a cup of tea, a sandwich and a cake at Mary’s hut.
