We visited Cornwall over the spring bank holiday weekend in May 2012. We were participating in the Riviera Run which is an annual run from West London for classic mini cars. The run finishes at a Newquay caravan and camping site, but as the weather leading up to the run had been extremely wet, and as we are getting on in years, the thought of two nights under canvass did not appeal.
I discovered Rosewyn on Late Bookings.com. We looked at a wide range of options as there seemed to be many beds available in Newquay. Whilst the farm is about 7 miles out of town it looked attractive.
What sold it to us was: Near Newquay but in a quiet rural location. Price; while not cheap it compared favourably with other options and looked good value at £65.00 per night for two people breakfast included. What sealed it for me was the unusual offer of workshop facilities for classic cars. I turns out that one of the owners restores MG's and Land Rovers. Luckily we didn't have to avail ourselves of this, but when you run an old mini you never know! Our room was delightful; large, spotlessly clean, tea/coffee facilities, flat screen TV, ensuite shower/toilet.
My only adverse comment was that the shower head could do with replacing. The breakfast was in the equally spotless dining room and included just about everything you could ask for, from fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts, tea/coffee and homemade bread to full English fry up (other cooked breakfasts were offered). The village pub is about 1 mile up the road. The steak was good, the welcome warm and the beer, real and good.
We went to Cornwall for a mini show but I think probably enjoyed the Rosewyn experience more than the Riviera Run. We are looking for an excuse to return sometime.
