Cornwall’s Secluded Enclave

By Linda Tancs

Bordered by the Fal estuary to the west and the Atlantic to the east, England’s Roseland Peninsula has been designated part of Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for its mix of enchanting coast and pastoral landscapes. St. Mawes is the Roseland’s only town, a tony retreat popular with summer visitors since Edwardian times. On the western end of town is the iconic St. Mawes Castle. Shaped like a clover leaf, it’s among the best preserved of Henry VIII’s seaside fortresses. In addition to its sweeping views of St. Anthony Head (the tip of the peninsula) and Falmouth, you’ll find intricate historic carvings on the castle walls, lauding King Henry VIII and his son Edward. A ferry runs in season between St. Anthony and St. Mawes.
