Welcome to Messack Holidays - Self catering on the Roseland

Hello! Welcome to Messack Holidays. We are the Lucas family and we would love to welcome you to this beautiful corner of Cornwall. We can offer two luxurious semi-detached cottages in a spectacular location on the Roseland Peninsula. Skiber (sleeps 4) and Karadow (sleeps 6) sit in the grounds of our home on the Messack promontory - located just between St Just Creek on one side and the safe sailing waters of the Carrick Roads on the other. The surrounding countryside is owned by the National Trust and is designated AONB. A haven for families, walkers, bird watchers or anyone who just wants to get away from it all.

The cottages are well away from busy roads yet only 10 minutes' drive from the pubs and restaurants of St Mawes and Portscatho; and within a short drive of beaches such as Pendower, Carne, Porthcurnick, St. Anthony and others. There are beautiful walks starting directly from the cottages. They are ideally positioned for visits to Eden, Trelissick, Heligan and many National Trust gardens and houses throughout Cornwall. Truro and Falmouth are a 30-minute drive (via the King Harry ferry).

Skiber and Karadow were renovated throughout in 2019 and offer a fully-equipped kitchen, upgraded bathrooms, wifi and SMART TVs. Each has its own enclosed, decked terrace with hot tub. There is shared access to a large lawned area, with plenty of space for children to run off steam. There is also a dedicated area for our four-legged friends. An additional utility room houses a tumble dryer, extra deep freeze and room for drying wet suits etc,. There is ample parking.

We welcome families and can provide travel cots and high-chairs on request. Both cottages have stair-gates and night lights for the little ones. As a family with young children, we may well have some of the other child-related paraphernalia you need, including buggies, bottle warmers and bottles. Let us know if there is something specific.

Cottages are available to non-smokers only. We can welcome up to two pets. Sorry - but the cottages are not available to stag- or hen-parties or other groups of single, young people (we might set the kids on you...)
