History of the hotel
The Rose in Vale Country House Hotel was originally a 17th Century Cornish Long house that consisted of two cottages. Mr Thomas Nankivell bought the property and in 1761 added the Iconic Georgian frontage. When Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Nankivell lived there, John Opie, the renowned local painter, visited them, his sister being in service there.
Ada Earland, in her book John Opie and his Circle says, "Mr. Thomas Nankivell of Rosenvale and his daughter, Joyce, had also been kind to the boy”; there is a tradition in the family that Opie painted young Mrs.Joseph Townsend (Joyce Nankivell) out of gratitude for assistance she had given him in his artistic training.
Joyce Nankivell was a local beauty, possessing "great sweetness and animation." The name of her father's house, "Rose-in-Vale, is said to have been given as a pretty compliment from a visitor to this fair Cornish flower set in the deep valley in which stood the house." Joyce has been described elsewhere as "The Belle of Mithian."
The house was bought by as a winter residence for Captain John Oates.
Captain Oates was the owner of the Great Wheal Leisure Copper Mine at Perranporth. He was involved in other mines and is said to have controlled all of the mines in the locality. It was an elegant private house with its Gatekeeper's cottage at the entrance (on the right as you enter the drive).
It is not known when Capt Oates took up residence but it was probably during the very early 1800s. He was definitely living here in 1830 up until the 1850s
