  • "The cottage was unclean in many areas, previous dog hair on lounge and stair carpet as no hoover available."

    Shower cubicle and bathed needed to be cleaned before use. Lovely settling and great size for a larger family.

    We had a lovely stay at Beggars Roost, drifted off to sleep to the cry of the peacocks each night, very comfortable bed and so relaxing. Roll on next year, we will be back

  • "Brilliant. As advertised and very much enjoyed the stay."

    Overall heating was a bit high. Although the display said 18-19, we had to turn most of the thermostats down to cool the house. No big deal, otherwise fantastic.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Beggars Roost."

    It's quiet but handy for Perranporth and the coastal footpath. Much of the character of the old chapel and Sunday school has been retained and we loved the light pouring through the arched windows. We really liked the galleried bedroom and the general feeling of space. A couple of peacocks visited the garden on our last day as if to wish us well. Beggars Roost is clean and well-looked after. You have everything you need for a great stay - even a games room! Highly recommended.

  • "Could do with a better clean, especially in the bathroom."

    The floor by the WC and the side of the bath needs cleaning. Really comfy beds and sofas, great log burner, well equipped kitchen. Could do with some pint glasses.

  • "Beggars roost is an interesting property with lots of space ."

    I booked it for Xmas and it worked out well for 6 people. It is overlooking an active cemetery which is worth being aware of ,I felt I was intruding on families visiting there loved ones at times. It was a bonus the property had a games area , playing pool was a highlight. Be careful with the fridge it seems to over freeze . A good time was had at beggars roost and I’m sure in the summer is a great base for visiting other places. Only real criticism we paid a lot as it was Xmas time and would have appreciated a welcome pack which is always a nice touch when you first arrive at a new holiday property ,we were left some milk and couple of bottles of cider from the cider barn but know welcome… enjoy your stay …. Or maybe some tea bags and bread would have been a nice touch and one often done in other places I’ve stayed . That said it was good fun to get away at Christmas for a nice change

  • "Wonderful accommodation: comfortable, welcoming and spacious."

    Our 13 and 11 year olds were particularly appreciative of the air hockey and pool table! The kitchen was well equipped, although we did eat out quite a bit - breakfast and cream teas at Healeys are a must! The only niggle was that the fridge was so cold that foods and liquids froze, despite the setting being on the warmest temperature. We’re already looking forward to planning a return visit next year.

    However is was very peaceful and would highly recommend! Very dog friendly too with the enclosed garden. The pool table / ice hockey table was a great addition. The complimentary welcome pack and healeys cyder farm tickets was an added bonus. Healeys is a fabulous place to visit great food and cyder. We will definitely be rebooking another holiday at Beggars Roost x

  • "Perfect stay for Six adults, 2 dogs and a 6 week old baby."

    The location was perfect, 7 minutes from St Agnes and 7 minutes from Perranporth’s amazing Dog friendly Beach. The bedrooms were all a good size and the beds extremely comfortable. The Garden was lovely to relax in and very safe for dogs and we all enjoyed the games room in the evening and the kitchen was a great size and well equipped. Just a suggestion to the owner as this property can take up to 8 people I would suggest that the garden had a larger more comfortable table and chairs for outdoor eating and some more fold up chairs for relaxing in the garden, and more pegs for the washing line

  • "This is a wonderful place to stay."

    The chapel is beautiful, very comfortable and is by far the best equipped we have ever stayed in. Extremely comfortable beds. The welcome gifts of cider & jam were a lovely touch, as was the milk ready for that essential cup of tea after a long drive. Unfortunately, due to the restrictions brought on by the coronavirus we didn't get to see as much of the area as we wanted to or enjoy a cream tea at Healey's but we still had a good time. If you are looking for a real escape from the hectic life we all live these days I recommend you book Beggars Roost.

    Lovely surprise “welcome pack” (mainly cyder from the farm!) and the complimentary cream teas were delicious. Games room was a real bonus with a great variety from a simple pack of cards, board games and a games table (pool, table tennis and air hockey). Would love to go back in the autumn and take advantage of the cosy wood burner. Overall a holiday cottage difficult to beat.

  • "The only word we can use about our stay at Beggars Roost is 'perfect' The property was very clean and is very well equipped."

    It is spacious with beautiful decor. There were six adults, a four month old baby and a dog in our party and we all settled in very quickly and were very sad to leave. The games area was well used and it was lovely to have two comfortable areas to sit. There was unlimited hot water which makes a difference when six need to shower. Outside we enjoyed breakfast on the picnic bench watching the Highland cows in the field next door and listening to the peacocks and the donkeys at the Cyder Centre. Blissful! A welcome tray was left with many Healeys goodies and a voucher for cream teas! Such a nice touch.We will definitely return.

  • "We had an enjoyable holiday and the owner Georgie was really lovely and helpful, but this cottage is new to the holiday let market after years as a long term let, and it was suffering teething problems."

    As a cottage for 2 people it was fine, but larger groups of upto 8 people might not enjoy this as much. The sitting room needs a reconfiguration. It has only 2 sofas (one of which is broken with a sunken seat) and only one of these faces the TV. We had to move a side table, bring in a lamp from the games room, and lay an extension lead so we could plug the lamp in. The owner offered to try to fix the sofa whilst we were out, but leaving an elderly dog alone with a workman wasn’t feasible. The garden furniture consists of a wooden bench/table and umbrella which you see in pub gardens. This was uncomfortable for reading so I recommend you take your own camp chairs if you want to enjoy the afternoon and early evening sun in the front garden. The back garden is the Chapel’s cemetery which can be accessed via a separate driveway. The 2 chairs in the games room are very very deep (like a fixed recliner) and not good for anyone with a bad back! The alternative seating was church pews by the pool table which were (by design!) uncomfortable. I took to the rocking chair in the 3rd bedroom when I wanted to read quietly, but sadly a swarm of bees escaped from a hive in the neighbouring orchard and took up residence in that bedroom (via a gap around the Velux window) and a wall of the Chapel. The bedroom floor was covered in dead bees as it was very hot in there that week. We were asked to open the Velux window so they could escape, and keep the bedroom door closed!! That meant the other bedrooms were hot and stuffy as we daren’t leave a window open for fear that the bees might prefer those bedrooms!! Not sure how they resolved that problem as the bee expert was there as we booked out. The double beds in 2 of the 3 bedrooms are two single mattresses pushed together. Bizarrely they appear to have mixed up the ‘firm’ and ‘soft’ mattresses, and there was one of each in the 2nd & 3rd bedrooms. Ok if the sleeping partners have different preferences for their mattresses, but may require a shuffling of mattresses if both want firm or soft. The only tv in the Chapel is in the living room, so custody of the remote control amongst 8 guests might cause issues! There appeared to be an unused aerial cable in the games room so you could take your own portable tv. The books and DVDs mentioned as being available were AWOL, as was the ‘welcome package’ provided by the owners for the cleaners to lay out but not there when we arrived. Georgie apologised and provided this when she came to inspect the bee problem as we booked out. But a takeaway ‘Cornish Cream tea’ to eat at home (with scones which were sadly very stale by the evening) was not the same as using the provided voucher for a sit down Cream tea with scones fresh out of the oven at the adjoining Healeys Cyder Farm. However the 3 bottles of different Cyders, the large bottle of Cornish apple juice and the jar of Strawberry jam (all made by Healeys Cyder farm) were wonderful. It was an eventful week at the Chapel, but the lovely weather, the proximity of the beach and facilities at Perranporth and the access to major A roads meant we did not need to spend that much time in the Chapel and the ongoing irritations could be avoided.

  • "Impressive holiday home - rooms much larger than they appear in photos."

    Everything you could've needed was provided. Fittings and fixtures of very high quality. Extremely comfortable and massive beds. Lovely selection of ciders and jam from Healey's Cider Farm. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to tour the farm and redeem our free cream tea voucher. The graveyard wasn't at all creepy, more peaceful. Looked out the window one day to see a pair of peacocks strolling down the central path. Very peaceful location. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.
