St Just in Roseland Circular Walk

One of our most favourite walks from the hotel, and St Mawes is the circular walk to St Just in Roseland, which can be enjoyed through the seasons.  It is 3 and half miles and takes about 2-3 hours to walk depending on how often you stop to take in the views.

You will enjoy stunning coastal views, across to Falmouth, up the Fal River and back up St Just Creek.  There are many points of interest to enjoy along the way, including St Mawes Castle, the disused water tank on stilts, St Just in Roseland Church, Bosloggas and the Percuil River.

The St Mawes Castle was built around the same time as Pendennis Castle between 1540-45 and its over riding task was to protect the Carrick Roads (Fal River) from invasion along with the larger more prominent Pendennis Castle in Falmouth.

The St Just in Roseland church is a very special 13th century church, set within sub tropical gardens on the site of a 6th century Celtic chapel.

We hope you enjoy!
