Rose Cottage is a traditional character cottage that can be found in the heart of the village just a short walk from the harbour, shops and amenities. Originally a single storey building that was part of the Old Mill complex it was extended in the late 1800's when a further two storeys were added together with an enclosed courtyard garden. Although a very different cottage today, the present owners have preserved as much of its character as possible during a sympathetic renovation and redesign of the accommodation that now boasts two bedrooms in the main cottage together with a small but beautifully presented self contained holiday let/air b&b on the ground floor. Approached through a delightful courtyard garden from Mill Hill the main accommodation is entered on the middle floor and via a period conservatory style porch, from here you access the main cottage with two reception rooms, stairs leading to the top floor and an opening to the kitchen. The two receptions rooms have exposed wood floors, period panelling and one has an open fireplace with cornish stone surround. The kitchen is small but well thought out with a butlers sink, wood worktops, fitted shelving and a door to the outside. On the top floor there are two bedrooms and a modern bathroom with a white suite. The holiday let/air b&b is on the ground floor and entered through doors from Mill Hill, here you access a small hall with door to the bedroom and to a large walk in storage cupboard. The bedroom is spacious and incorporates a small basin, microwave and kettle. A door to one end of the room opens to reveal a beautifully fitted shower room. The courtyard garden affords a degree of privacy and is well planned with flower beds either side of the flagstone path and a delightful seating area. Rose Cottage is the perfect home that could provide an income if required, alternatively the ground floor could be used for visitors or additional accommodation.

Main cottage:
Front porch, 2 reception rooms, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom in the main house.
Holiday Let/Air b&b:
Entrance hall with large walk in storage cupboard, double bedroom/living room with en suite shower room.

A gate from Mill Hill gives access to a flagstone path that winds through the courtyard garden to the front porch and kitchen door. Either side of the path there are planted flower beds and to one side, a seating area. The garden affords a degree of privacy.

On entering Polperro go straight over the mini roundabout with the Crumplehorn on your left. Proceed along the main road (The Coombes), continue past the Claremont Hotel and take the next right into Mill Hill. Follow the road past the model village on your right and the cottage can then be found a few yards along on your right. Due to the narrow streets and the lack of parking within the village we would strongly advise those viewing the premises to park in the main car park, which is just before the mini roundabout, and proceed on foot.
