Pronounced Roach , the village gets its name from a granite outcrop east of the village. On the rock is a hermitage chapel of St Michael, built in 1409. The ruins of the chapel were last occupied by the family of local landowners when they contracted leprosy, and stayed here so that they would not infect the village. Admission to the chapel is free.

Map Beaches Places to Stay - Accommodation Tourist Information Official Web Site

Two houses in a fold of a rolling hill in one of the most delightful country settings in Cornwall. They nestle comfortably in lawned gardens which run down to the river Ruan, a little stream about 5 ft wide, bubbling over a bed of pebbles. The two houses are separated by a path, a flower bed and the tiny mill stream which flows under a private bridge between these two houses. The King's Head, which offers pub food, is two hundred yards down the road.
