For larger groups or families The Lookout at The Rosevine offers the perfect solution. Ideally set up for four adults and four children this contemporary, coastal home offers guests the best of both world. All the space and privacy of a self catering retreat combine with the Rosevine's onsite restaurant and indoor pool to ensure a truly special and relaxing family break.
The Rosevine itself is a fabulous Georgian home, just a stones throw from the beach with 12 luxury rooms ( each a studio, 1 or 2 bedroom apartment), an indoor pool, excellent restaurant and fantastic family friendly attitude which has guests returning year after year for an idyllic Cornish holiday!
Parents and former hotel managers, Hazel and Tim bought and refurbished The Rosevine couple of years ago and have struck the perfect balance between style, luxury and family practicality. The Lookout is their latest venture and has been finished to the same high standard. The house is bright and airy with a relaxed coastal chic approach. Just like the in house guest rooms it boasts flat screen TVs, free WiFi, luxury toiletries and Egyptian cotton bed linen. It also has its own garden, terrace and play room so families have plenty of privacy and space for little ones to play unhindered.
The Rosevine's own grounds are large and lawned making them perfect for ball games but they also hide a wooden playhouse, trampoline, climbing frame, slides and a swing. Lookout guests are welcome to use the communal grounds which gives little ones the chance to meet some fellow playmates.
Along with the large indoor pool and lovely gardens, guest facilities include an elegant morning room and restaurant, both with beautiful sea views, and a cosy family den complete with sofas, flatscreen TV, DVD library, X-Box, doll's houses and cupboards stuffed with lovely wooden toys. There's a great kids menu in the restaurant and a handy room service, tapas menu for parents to relax and enjoy on their own terrace.
