-- Set in the delightful wooded valley of Porthtowan, a village on the north coast of Cornwall, you will find Rosehill Lodges http://www.rosehilllodges.com , ideally placed for surfing , cycling, walking or just relaxing holidays. Celebrating their third consecutive Five Star Gold Award this year, Rosehill have led the way in combining green-sustainability with luxury self –catering accommodation, featuring grass roofs and hot tubs for an exceptional holiday experience. Just a few minutes’ walk away is Porthtowan’s beautiful prized surfing beach, which retained its Blue Flag award once again this year. Now, for the benefit of their guests, Rosehill offers an absolutely fabulous gift boutique to add to the charms of this hidden treasure.
“Gorgeous Things Sweetie” - the new shop, offers guests unusual, handmade, quality items as memorabilia of their stay at Rosehill. The wonderful aromas of ‘Gorgeous Things Sweetie’ assail your nostrils as soon as you enter the boutique shop. Offering an array of products from “Flobib” – designer teething bibs handmade and brand new to the UK www.flobib.com, amber teething necklaces, incense and incense holders, candles, essential oils, children’s gifts, fluffy dressing gowns, Tamar Valley Organics and Pure and Balmy toiletries, to “Tiny Toes”- little shoes and socks, hand-knitted with 100% pure merino wool by Pauline Barrow herself.
All items in the shop are extremely reasonably priced and in most cases, even cheaper than many gift shops in Cornwall. As an introductory offer, all guests receive a 10% discount off all purchases until the end of June.
‘Gorgeous Things Sweetie’ is the brainchild of Pauline Barrow, joint-owner and co-founder of Rosehill Lodges. It was born out of a desire for a shop in which to offer Rosehill’s customers that little bit extra. Pauline, who has a serious knitting addiction, is pleased she now has an outlet for all her hand-knit creations as well as satisfying her love of shopping and selling. The name was inspired by ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ characters Eddie and Patsy from this year’s new series, where Patsy asks, “Yes, but Eddie, if you open this shop, what would you sell in it?” To which Eddie replies, “All sorts of gorgeous things, Sweetie!” as if there could be any question about that. And so it was...
All at Rosehill Lodges are hoping that it will prove to be extremely popular with guests and will prove to be a great opportunity for some of their local suppliers, like Pure and Balmy and Tamar Valley Organics, to have an additional local outlet, as well as promoting some rare and exclusive items such as “Flobibs” and “Tiny Toes”.
