  • "We had a wonderful stay at Elvan Cottage."

    Matt was on hand with a warm welcome when we arrive after a 600 mile journey down from Scotland. Took us around to show us everything we needed to see and know for our stay. Fresh flowers, milk, tea , coffee and orange juice in cottage for arrival. Cottage itself, stunning, everything you needed and more for an exceptional stay. Hot tub great.. Matt, Dan and of course Sausage and Dominic the cats made us so very welcome it was well worth the drive. We have no hesitation in recommending Elvan Cottage. We will certainly be back. Thanks guys Hazel and Frances.

    Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Great location, well placed for day trips and exploring the local area. Fresh flowers, milk, orange juice and biscuits on arrival. The hot tub was a welcome treat. Highly recommend. Thank you Matt and Dan!

  • "We found Elvan Cottage purely by chance and were not disappointed."

    It is an airy cottage with some modern 'quirks' and the hot tub is a welcome treat at the end of a long day walking. Matt is a great host - very welcoming. We appreciated his call 24 hours beforehand to check everything was OK for our visit. The cottage is centrally located in order to explore both the north and south coastal towns of Cornwall. Would thoroughly recommend. Also impressed with Sykes Cottages too.

  • "Elvan Cottage was beautiful and great location as a base to visit most parts of Cornwall."

    Having the kennels on site is great as we were able to have days out with our dog and also leave her at the kennels on days where taking a dog would not be suitable. Lovely orchard area with hot tub and outdoor bar, Matt was a great host and very welcoming.

  • "Location is lovely and picturesque and remote (we didn't try and walk into Liskeard from the property)."

    Matt, the owner, rang a couple of days in advance to see if we had any questions, which was a nice touch. We had a warm welcome upon arrival by the two brothers and handed the keys and given an introductory tour of the property and the hot tub. Complimentary milk and juice in the fridge on arrival. Elvan Cottage is joined to their other barn conversion so would be well suited for a group of 8 if you're able to book both. Nice big kitchen and breakfast bar with cooker, fridge, freezer and dish washer and all the required utensils. Bed was big and comfortable (there were only 2 of us so we only used one of the bedrooms). The TV in the living room was much bigger than it looked in the pictures on-line. The property was hi-tech throughout with surround sound speakers, bluetooth and LED lights under the toilet seat so that you didn't have to turn the main light/fan on when getting up in the night - an excellent idea! There are 2 large leather sofa's in the living room. Nice rain shower in the shower room, plus toilet and a separate toilet as well. The hot tub was really good. We were left to agree with the occupants of the other property who gets the hot tub when but we didn't need to as we didn't ever want it at the same time during our stay. The outside honesty bar is a great idea and the beers were really well chilled. Wifi also available in the garden area/ outside bar, which was really useful. The outside area also included a couple of hammocks attached to the trees, outside BBQ facilities and large grassy areas to play games etc. There were a couple of cats wandering around which gave it a nice homely feel. Matt was generally around (without being imposing) if you had any issues (we didn't) or wanted any advice about the surrounding areas etc.

  • "We loved this holiday cottage the minute we stepped in."

    The photos don't do it justice. It's in a lovely, secluded location and is a total home from home. It's decorated to a high standard and has lots of quirky touches that make it that bit special. A really great combination of all the features of the original barn coupled with all mod cons such as in-built usb ports, underfloor heating and a fab surround sound system. The garden is lovely with a bar and hot tub which we were able to use plenty even though the weather wasn't brilliant. Matt is a great host - called us a couple of days before, greeted us on arrival, friendly and helpful. It's in a great spot too - 5 mins from the A38 so you have easy access to anywhere you want to go in Cornwall. Thanks for a fab holiday - we really enjoyed it.

  • "We had a great time at Elvan Cottage."

    It has been really well decorated and kitted out with some quirky features and has everything you need for a home from home experience. It’s location is ideal near the A38, yet you don’t hear any traffic and you feel like you’re still in the middle of nowhere. The host is very attentive and really makes sure you’re having a pleasurable stay. Would recommend Elvan cottage to anyone! Perfect set up for two families / two groups of friends with the neighbouring cottage and also the shared garden/hot tub and bar area.

    Definitely exceeded our expectations. We were very kindly welcomed by Matt and Dan. The cottage was super modern but with the countryside feeling to it (friendly and cute cat & dog around), had all we needed for a very confortable stay. All very clean and organized. Also, many thoughtfull details. We definetely recommend a stay in there, we loved everything, the cottage, the hottub, the surroundings. Perfect for a relaxing week in nature, enjoying Cornwall.

  • "Dan and Matt have worked hard really hard to produce and outstanding property."

    Elvan Cottage is an exceptional holiday destination, well set out and has a high level of facilities. The property is well situated to visit south Cornwall and Devon but well tucked away if you just want to stay around and just chill out at the cottage. We loved our time there and will most certainly look to go back at some stage.

  • "We were lucky enough to be the first guests in this beautiful property."

    The owners were exceptionally helpful. The property is extremely high spec and very comfortable. The shower was amazing. The master bedroom does not have zip and link but two twins pushed together, however they are very comfortable with a super king mattress topper. The grounds are lovely and we managed to use the hot tub without any difficulties, even though it is shared with the adjacent property. There is hand sanitizer in communal areas. The location is perfect for exploring the North and south coast. A morrisons outside of town is very useful and Liskewrd has lovely local shops as well.
