  • "Beautiful house with lots of space for our group of 12 adults."

    Only suggestion would be second fridge. Maybe couple of sun loungers … but that’s it!

  • "We had a wonderful stay in a most wonderful cottage."

    Our weather was mixed but that didn't stop us enjoying this beautiful county. Sennen Cove was the favourite beach of the family and an evening spent at The Minack was magical. (Lands End we did not like, totally spoilt). We took DVD's to enjoy a family film night but couldn't find the dvd player!! So instead we had a karaoke night, which was great fun. So pleased that we stayed at Ros Vale, it was loved by all ❤️

  • "Ros Vale was just wonderful!"

    Such a beautiful comfortable home with plenty of space for our family get together. The standard of the accommodation was excellent. The cottage has been modernised and the layout makes it easy to relax and enjoy the surroundings. We loved the garden too! It’s well located for the stunning beach at porthcurno and the Minack theatre and other places like Mousehole, Sennen Cove, Penzance and St Ives. Would 100% recommend the cottage and would love to return there again. Thank you very much! ☺️

  • "Had a brilliant time and the property, grounds and area where absolutely brilliant and we will definitely be returning, the only issues we had was that the previous tenants hadn’t put the correct items in the bins outside so they hadn’t been collected properly and we had to sort them otherwise we wouldn’t have anywhere to put our rubbish and the washing machine was broken and after we phoned up on our day of arrival nobody got back to us or came to fix the problem so we didn’t have anywhere to clean our clothes and towels."

    All in all though it was fantastic and we will definitely be returning.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on the house and I’m glad you had a good time, but I’m sorry that you were faced with rubbish issues and you were unable to get support for the washing machine. I’m assuming you called the housekeeping team who should come out in any emergency and I will take this up with them. However, when your party arrived I spoke to someone on the phone and explained where my personal contact details were in the house and how to get hold of me if there were any problems, so I’m slightly surprised you did not use this info’ to contact me directly. I always ring on arrival for this reason. In fact the machine is not broken but there is a knack to getting the door closed so the machine starts. Property Owner

  • "This house is incredibly spacious, comfortable and well equipped."

    The decoration and furnishing is tasteful and interesting. We especially liked the conservatory room for the day time as the sitting room is a bit dark, though great for evenings. And we enjoyed the garden - woodpeckers, newts in the stream - and the lovely wooded walk down to the sea at St Loy.

    Nine of us had a brilliant Christmas at Ros Vale. We even cooked a goose on Christmas Day/ birthday lunch for one of us! There was everything we needed there and was so comfortable. We thoroughly recommend both the house and the wonderful surrounding area.

    Thank you for your feedback. The birthday celebrations sound exciting. I’m not sure anyone else has cooked a Goose here. We are very pleased to hear that your second stay was as good as your first and hope you will all come again. Property Owner

  • "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!

  • "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

    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

  • "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

    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 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!
