Rosudgeon is a quiet hamlet that lies slightly inland from one of Cornwall’s most prized stretches of coastland - a brilliant base for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of nearby towns Penzance and Helston.
There’s plenty to discover, from historic Cornish landmarks and miles-upon-miles of coastal paths - to a plethora of untouched coves just waiting to be explored, including Prussia Cove.
Rich in smuggling history, the cove was once a favourite haunt of John Carter, known as the ‘The King of Prussia’ - who landed much of his loot on the beach. Today it is home to a small harbour and slipway, which is still used by local fishermen. The beach offers fantastic snorkelling opportunities and is dog friendly all year round – a fantastic family day out in Cornwall.
Rosudgeon offers good local amenities including a general store, pub and large sports ground, where the weekly car boot sale is held.
Exploring the coastal footpaths, which provide breath-taking views of Mounts Bay, Cudden Point and the Lizard Point.
The car-boot sale, that takes place every Wednesday from 10am -3pm. You’ll find everything from antique furniture and vintage clothing to rare books and bric-a-brac.
