Enjoy the classes, retreats, talks, workshops, treatments and music that are on offer in the Long Barn and Hayloft. Holiday in the Well House or revitalise in the Bullpen. Enjoy the great outdoors in your own tent. Walk the fields and woods nearby, or visit the many local beaches and cliffs. Enjoy all that West Cornwall has to offer; it is all within easy reach.

Coronavirus Update September 2020

Staying at Roselidden is possible again, with guests now enjoying the WellHouse, the Bullpen and camping.

Some limited activities are now taking place in the Long Barn and the grounds. These include T’ai Chi, meditation, brushwork classes and the End of the Road Cafe led by Jos. Numbers are strictly limited to ensure social distancing, with Zoom being used to allow access to those remaining at home who wish to participate.

It seems unlikely that classes and activities led by outside teachers will be able to resume in the near future due to the limit in size of gatherings to six people. We await further developments.


Roselidden goes from strength to strength as a community centre, with more and more groups using the Long Barn and Hayloft. It seems like hardly a day goes by without some activity taking place!

The emphasis is on activities that promote wellbeing, such as T’ai Chi, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, Zen brushwork, shiatsu, music. We also welcome a number of faith groups who find that the privacy that Roselidden affords for their meetings is a valuable thing. We are pleased to offer the space for fundraising for local causes.

Jos spends more and more of her time on end of life care, running the monthly ‘End of the Road Cafe’ and helping set up similar groups around Cornwall.

Peter continues to maintain the buildings and grounds, and on renovation when time allows. The Bullpen is now complete and available as a space for private contemplation or retreat. 2019 saw the start of work on the last building needing renovation; the Dream Barn. First step was replacing rotten wooden lintels then putting on a new roof structure and covering. In 2021 the aim is to take the slates off the Smiley Barn, replace the roof structure and re-slate. 

We always welcome new ideas for Roselidden, so if you would like us to consider your activity, please do contact us.


With best wishes

Jos and Peter
