A separate two-bedroom apartment on the lower ground floor which has been a holiday let in the past, or would serve well as a granny flat or guest accommodation.

The house is surrounded by pretty gardens and has a detached garage with lots of storage. The owner of the house also acquires a licence for running a mooring and pontoon.

Roselaw lies in the hamlet of Mixtow on the east bank of the Fower River, just a quarter of a mile from Fowey by boat and just over a mile by car. Fowey itself is a terrific base from which to explore the channel islands and the harbours and creeks of the west country.
