  • "Extremely enjoyable stay at Ros Vale (July ‘22)."

    A genuinely high end property and extremely well kitted out internally - on all fronts. Friendly and helpful interactions with owner (simply to check everything was OK) and it all set up for a good week. Location wise, the property is a perfect gateway to so many beautiful towns / villages / coves etc. The fact that it is fairly rural simply added to the much needed peace and quiet of our trip. Highly recommended - and my other half is mega fussy!

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. We try to provide something we would enjoy ourselves, so we are delighted you had a good time! Property Owner

  • "I spent a week at Ros Vale to celebrate a special birthday with my family (including grandchildren)."

    On arrival we thought the house was even better than the photos. There was plenty of room for our party of 13 in the lovely conservatory and kitchen/dining area and the grandchildren loved the big TV in the living room and the stream in the garden. We were very lucky with the weather and opened the bi-fold doors when we got back in the late afternoons/early evenings. We were disappointed not to have patio chairs (the patio was a sun trap and we wanted to sit/eat outside) but these were kindly provided upon request. Loved the location and recommend walking through the pretty woods to the rocky cove at St Loy - too early for bluebells but lots of daffodils. We had a fantastic week although we would have preferred an earlier checkin and later departure (we really struggled to get out by 9am).

    Thank you for your kind detailed comments. We have changed the access times now that Covid has settled. We are so glad you enjoyed your special event. Come back and see us again. Property Owner

  • "So wonderful in every way."

    I have no its about anything I do have a suggestion which is that since families are likely to go and there is a downstairs bedroom with ensuite making it perfect for older people except it would be even more perfect if they were a bar in the shower for less able people to hold onto.

    Thank you for your helpful comments. We will consider adding a shower bar! Do some again! Property Owner

    We couldn’t find a single fault with the place, everything had been so well designed and thought out, the house had everything we needed and was fresh and clean. My parents family live locally and it was lovely to be able to entertain in the lovely kitchen / lounge/ diner.

  • "Ros Vale has everything you need in a holiday home, everything has been finished to the very high standard, the kitchen had more than enough plates glasses pans etc than cooking for 10 was easy."

    The utility room is huge with enough hanging space for all coats and beach stuff! The laundry room was perfect for us. The room off the kitchen with the bifold doors was lovely, on a nice evening we opened the doors and had tea on the outside dining table! Every bathroom was fitted and finished to such a high standard. It’s only 15mins to Porthcurno beach and 25mins to Penzance so everywhere is easily accessible. We did the walk through the woods to St Loys cove, it was a bit of a steep walk in some parts and the cove itself is huge boulders so don’t expect a Sandy beach at the bottom but still a nice walk through with the kids and dog! All in all an excellent house and we had a lovely week despite it not being the best weather!

  • "The house itself was beautiful but sadly the dust and dirt let it down."

    We did not expect to have to clean the house before we could relax and enjoy this!

    We have had excellent scores for our cleaning throughout the season, so this comment is surprising given the efforts we got to, to make our guests comfortable. The guest handbook contains contact details for the housekeeper and owner, with a request to contact us immediately (on arrival or throughout the stay) should any issues arise, so that we can help sort things out quickly and effectively. Our feedback reflects this level of service. It is surprising therefore that this guest chose to clean the house herself rather than contact us to raise the issue. Property Owner

  • "I booked this for a family get together holiday and was delighted with this wonderful home - Absolutely beautiful in every way!"

    The house was fitted out to a very high standard and equipped with EVERYTHING that you could possible need! The rooms are spacious and the decor is Fab! The beds are all super comfy and it was great to have the 4 bathrooms. The setting is peaceful and there are walks from the door across fields and through woodland to the sea. Penzance is 20 mins and St Ives 30 mins - nearby (10 mins) is the stunning beach of Porthcurno and a couple of us walked (2 hours) to gorgeous Nanzijal Cove. We were a family of 10 + 2 dogs and all thoroughly enjoyed our week at Ros Vale. Thank You so much :-)

  • "Wow!! What a fabulous place"

    !! We were a group of 12, 6 kids and 6 adults and the space was perfect. My only small gripe is I think the cleaning could be slightly improved, there was quite a bit of dust about. However this didn't ruin out stay. The house had everything we needed, the beds were super comfy and bathrooms really nice. We had such a fabulous week we have 're booked for May 2020

  • "Cottage and surroundings are beautiful."

    We had a really enjoyable stay at Ros Vale. Seating inside and out were more than enough to accommodate all 9 of us with ease and the local cat was a star. My main point for improvement would be that, for the money, the cleanliness of the cottage could be a lot better (showers, sinks and corners mainly). There was also a lack of basic supplies (kitchen towels, cheese grater). If these issues were sorted, we'd definitely stay again.

  • "We would have scored this holiday top marks except for the fact the garden is not secure and one of our dogs got a out the road and narrowly missed being knocked down by a car!"

    Very frightening experience all round and had to tether dogs up for the rest of the holiday, not ideal but at least we knew they were safe. That was the negative, the actual house was more than we wished for, very high tech and to an amazing high standard. We loved the kitchen, bedrooms and wonderful bathrooms and the whole of downstairs. We had some wonderful meals at the large dining table and fit 11 of us round more that comfortably. We adored the the bi-fold doors and the way you could open up the house into the garden. Lovely walks through the woods to the coastal paths, a fabulous spot. If the garden issue could be sorted I would definitely go back with our dogs, but would have to be secure for us to do this. Anyone without dogs or small children you would adore this house and could thoroughly recommend. Think every now and then you need an intense clean as the stairs was very dusty, just being a bit picky now but does make a difference. We took our own hoover and used this but could not do the stairs as you needed tools. All in all a fabulous stay and would recommend and would be just perfect with a secure garden.

  • "For visitors from overseas - like us - some more explicit instructions about how things work might have been useful."

    For example, the weather was chillier than usual for the first few days of our stay, and we never figured out how the heating system was controlled! Our comment id not intended to detract from what was a very pleasurable stay in a splendidly modernized property. And the neighborhood cat that visited the garden very regularly was a sweetheart!

    The property is in a lovely location near the coast and is very comfortable and well equipped. The open plan aspect to the front gives it a light and airy feel and the sitting room is ideal for cosy evenings around the log fire. There are plenty of walks from right outside the front door and you are very close to some attractive valleys, harbours and beaches which have inspired communities of artists for many years.
