    We have booked to repeat the experience in May next year. Can't say more!

  • "We were made to feel very welcome at the cottage by owners and Holly who was very helpful and fully communicated with us prior to our stay."

    Cottage very comfortable and in a great position to visit nearby beaches. Cubert common was a short walk away which our dog loved and the hot water outside shower was appreciated and made our life easier. Lovely fully enclosed garden was enjoyed by our dog and we even managed to sit out on the bench to join him on the couple of sunny days we had. Great cottage and would recommend to others

  • "We had a lovely stay at Rowan Cottage."

    It had everything you needed and more. On arrival, we had a lovely welcome pack and Ellie, our dog hadn’t been forgotten as there was a tin of dog biscuits for her. The weather wasn’t great, but it was lovely coming back to a very warm and cosy cottage. Can see why this cottage is 5* as everything is of a high quality and finish. Due to the location, do need a car but everything you need is only a short drive away. Will definitely be recommending this cottage to family and friends and can’t wait to go back. Thank you for a lovely Christmas break

  • "We had an amazing week at Rowan Cottage."

    Prior to our break we had plenty of information from the owners and Holly, including a call the day before to give us any final information we needed. We had high expectations but when we arrived our expectations were exceeded. We were met by Holly who came to make sure we had everything we needed and she gave us information on local places to visit. She had also left a few welcome goodies which were appreciated and enjoyed. The cottage is beautiful, we felt like we were the the first guests to have stayed there as it was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The master bedroom and en-suite is amazing, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and the lounge is comfortable and welcoming. The outside warm shower was brilliant for the dogs. The cottage is in a lovely rural and peaceful location. Polly Joke is walkable and other beaches are a few minutes drive. It is a great base for exploring the area. We wish we could have stayed for longer but hope to return again soon. Thank you to the owners and to Holly for such an wonderful break.

    Holly is a tremendous asset - we have a dog and even with care and attention from us as owners we know the challenge that can present in a holiday cottage . There had been 2 dogs staying the week before but the cottage was spotless, as always. Thankyou Holly!

  • "Rowan cottage is a beautiful picturesque cottage in the rural setting of Cubert near to Crantock Bay."

    The location is quiet and has stunning beaches easily accessible within a 20-30 minute walk to Poly Joke beach and slightly longer walks to both Holywell and Crantock beaches. The cottage has well maintained gardens with a lovely seating area to the front of the property. Holly who looks after the property is very helpful and polite and makes sure that every requirement is taken care of and was pleased to share her good local knowledge. We would definitely stay at the cottage again and have no hesitation in recommending it for anyone wanting a rural quiet setting and the perfect base to explore the surrounding area and Cornwall during your stay. Thank you Holly, until next time

    It was very clean, well appointed and comfortable. Close to the dog-friendly beaches of Holywell, Perranporth and Crantock, our Jack Russell had a wonderful time. Village chippie and bakers was good and best meal out was at the Bowgie Inn, where the setting overlooking Crantock beach was wonderful. Would highly recommend.

  • "Rowan Cottage was one of the best, if not the best, holiday cottages we have stayed in."

    We have stayed in lots over the years! It was very well equipped throughout and comfortable. The location was perfect for us as it was within walking distance of a beautiful beach and surrounding countryside. The housekeeper, Holly, was welcoming and friendly and was happy for us to contact her if we needed any help. We didn't but it was good to have that contact. Overall we had a great holiday despite the weather - rain and gale force winds! We hope to return to Rowan Cottage in the future.

  • "A lovely cottage in a great location."

    The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The details of how to get there and arrangements for the keys to the cottage all worked very smoothly and the contact person (Holly) was very helpful. We particularly enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and the village with a great Bakery where you can get coffee and cakes alongside a Pub which also sells food. We also had two great days out to the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan places we had visited many years ago.

    Beautiful cottage and very clean. Holly who looked after us was very helpful and friendly. I must point out that since Sykes took over from Cornwall Cottages the prices have gone up a lot on all of the cottages i viewed online. I have got another cottage booked with Sykes and after that will probably start looking elsewhere for accommodation

    We've been holidaying in this area for the past 18 years and Rowan Cottage is by far the best accommodation we've stayed in. Well equipped, incredibly comfortable and so peaceful - we would love to come back some day.

  • "It was an excellent cittage and location but these few points below would be worth noting."

    It would have been good to know the approximate walking distance to the nearby beach called Polly Joke. For us it was about 30-35 minutes walk with the first 10 minutes being up the lane to Cubert Common. We could not find a shaving socket anywhere in the house (and did ask the property manager about this) so we were unable to charge our electric toothbrushes. Not the end of the world, but unusual. We thought the £40 charge for our dog was excessive and would not book this cottage again unless that was reduced to a more typical level.

Rowan Cottage is the ideal holiday cottage for families, groups of up to 3 couples and is ideal for parties with a guest who would prefer to not go upstairs as the Master Bedroom suite is on the ground floor and is accessible from the front of the house and the rear.

Rowan Cottage is the ultimate get-away.

Located in the small hamlet of Tresean, between Cubert and Crantock and only a half a mile walk along a country lane from Cubert Common which leads to Polly Joke Beach.

Rowan Cottage is a detached, beautifully presented, delightful period cottage.

Between the two bedrooms on the landing, is the second bathroom.
