  • "The location of the cottage was amazing, hidden away so loads of privacy, but 5 minutes drives from the A38 which took us everywhere we wanted to go, top marks for location!"

    The cottage itself was idyllic and magical, we loved how so much thought had gone into all the quirky details and colours, the sparkly windows in the bedroom/bathroom just so beautiful, very sunny private garden... didnt love so much the sofa (not really a sofa) a couple of loungers in the garden would of been lovely, the chairs were so uncomfortable, maybe an information pack,re the cottage itself would of been very useful, my partner nearly had heart attack using the kettle for the first time :) all in all we loved our stay, a few tweeks would make this property a 5 star listing

  • "We loved our stay at Ere Tis."

    It’s really quirky but a few things let it down which could be easily improved: it needs blinds on riff windows in bedroom otherwise you wake up at 4/5am and shattered for the day. It needs a proper small sofa in the lounge area not the modular rattan garden furniture. It’s so uncomfortable and impossible to relax in evening. Would be good to have a microwave. Everything else was lovely, well equipped. However, it really needs a garden maintenance as it’s disappointing to see all the weeds in driveway and patio when you’ve spent a lot of money on rent. Easily fixed but def not worth the money as it is

    Place was dirty toilet stained kitchen sink filthy Aries cable was laid across the length of the property I do have photos and have not put a review on trip advisor yet all I can say it was very disappointing and not worth half the money I was charged we have used sakes before and did not expect you to have a place like this on a positive loved the quirky decor but the garden was over grown weeds everywhere I am sorry about this but we were and still are so disappointed

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    Lovely little cozy cottage, perfect for romantic retreat! The only criticism would be that it is quite light in the mornings because the dormer windows didn’t have any blinds. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

  • "The cottage was very dusty."

    The crockery was still in the dishwasher from the previous tenants. There were no simple instructions on how to use the television, just the very complex tv manual which came with the set. There was no information about local pubs, restaurants or places to visit. The grass hadn’t been cut. The wild flowers that had been left in a vase on the table were dead and had dropped all their seeds over the table. So had obviously been there a while. Saying that the cottage was in a good location. In the quiet countryside but only a couple of minutes drive off the A38 to get to places like Looe, Polperro, Fowey, Lostwithiel etc. The cottage is very cute and quirky but in many ways is not practical. Masses of refrigerator and freezer room, far in excess for 2 people, but no where to hang wet coats, boots etc. No door mat. Not enough towel hanging hooks, only 1. The shutters only cover half the bedroom windows and no other blinds or curtains in the bedroom so you have to use eye masks (provided). The mirrors in the bedroom are in totally unusable places. For information, the mattress is memory foam I think, so gets very hot. All of this didn’t spoil our holiday. We had a lovely time. But things could certainly be improved in the cottage. A memorable place tho.

Resting in the quiet hamlet of Landrake in Cornwall is Ere Tis, a delightfully quirky one-bedroom barn conversion perfect for a couple looking to explore Cornwall.

Ideal for a romantic retreat, this charming dwelling offers a spacious pet-friendly garden with furniture and a lovely woodburning stove amongst the fabulous exposed stone wall and original features to set the ambiance.

On arrival at the property, the open-plan living space invites you in to relax and unwind in front of the Smart TV while the woodburning stove gently warms the room.

From here, rustle up a feast in the kitchen on the electric oven and hob before savouring your meal at the dining table as you gaze out over the luscious greenery of the garden.

As the evening draws to a close, stare up through the skylight on the vaulted ceiling at the stars above before heading to the bedroom to rest your eyes ahead of another adventurous day.

The bedroom is home to a plush adjustable double bed, where you can select the preferred height of your head and feet, a television and a handy safe and is served by an en-suite shower room where you can prepare for the day ahead, while boasting beautiful wooden and iron doors throughout the barn.

Outside, you can cherish your breakfast with a cup of tea out on the rattan furniture while your four-legged friend runs off some energy on the lawn.

Treat yourself to a meal out in one of many nearby eateries such as The Weary Friar Inn, which is a traditional country inn serving a bar menu of pub classics and a courtyard for the warmer evenings, or head across the A38 into Landrake where you can got to The Bullers Arms for some food and drink, with a post office and village shop also close by.

For activities while at the dwelling, why not visit Cornish Maize Maze and Fun Farm, a delightfully fun day out at the Smeaton Farm's beautiful grounds.

A scenic car journey will bring you to Polperro Model Village, where you can view the enchanting model village and learn of the myths and legends in the area, this quirky attraction has been popular with tourists for over 60 years.

For those looking to explore nature by foot, Warren Point is just over the county border into Devon and is home to stunning views overlooking the ferry links to Wembury; the National Park offers a range of terrains for you to explore with fantastic scenery along the way.

If basking in nature is your ideal day out, visit The Golitha Falls, a series of cascading waterfalls running through woodlands; the area is a National Nature Reserve and has also been registered a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its woodland flora.

Within easy reach of the property is the marvellous Cornish coast; less than 10 miles from the barn is Downderry Beach, a shingle beach with rock pools and a good pub nearby, or for a sandy beach nestled among rocky cliffs, Bovisands Beach is slightly further afield.

Choose Ere Tis for a tranquil break to Cornwall, year after year.

About the location


Plymouth 6 miles; Liskeard 14 miles.

Saltash is dominated by the magnificent Tamar Bridge, Brunel’s masterpiece of engineering taking people from Devon to Cornwall across the Tamar River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Saltash retains much of its old Cornish charm with narrow streets rising steeply from the banks of the river, and plenty of shops and interesting inns. From the old quayside there are river trips up stream to Calstock, a pretty village with white cottages on a steep hillside. Here, the 120 foot giant 11-arched Calstock Railway Viaduct towers above the River Tamar and carries one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines down to the coast. Saltash offers some beautiful walks along the Tamar, and is only a five minute drive from Plymouth, with a plenty to occupy visitors including the historic Barbican quayside area with cafes, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium and several theatres. A perfect base for exploring the area along the beautiful River Tamar.
