Rosamunde Pilcher

Born in Lelant, Cornwall on 22nd September 1924 Rosamunde Pilcher first published in 1949 as an author of Mills and Boon romances under the pseudonym Jane Fraser. Using her own name, Rosamunde published her first novel ‘A Secret to Tell’ in 1955 and has written many successful novels since. In 1987, at the age of 63, she wrote the international best seller ‘The Shell Seekers’ which sold 5.5 million copies making her one of our most successful contemporary authors.

Having gained enormous popularity in Germany, where over 100 of her stories have been televised, Rosamunde was awarded the British Tourism Award in 2002. The effect on the Cornish Tourist Industry has been unsurpassed and the filming of 14 of her stories here at Prideaux Place for transmission in German speaking countries has made this house a Mecca for visitors from Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Peter Prideaux-Brune likes to take a cameo role in the films shot at Prideaux Place and his credits to date include a chauffeur, a gin taster and a coroner.
