    We absolutely love that we can be confident each time that it fulfills our expectations (and more)of a great holiday home. Comfortable,cosy, spotlessly cleaned and prepared by Holly.We would definitely recommend this to friends and family.On the plus side there is a great bakery,shop in Cubert. Also nearby in Crantock a post offiçe/general stores and Cornishman serving real ales and good food.

    A delightful house that has lots of amenities, spacious rooms and fantastic gardens. As a base it was perfect for our plans ranging from walks to super close beaches to getting on the main roads for exploring Cornwall. The property manager was amazing and always answered our messages and offering help & recommendations. This was one of our favourite holidays and we would definitely come back for another stay.

  • "We have stayed in many cottages across the UK, this was comfortably the best we have ever stayed in."

    So spacious inside, the bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and living spaces were of the absolute highest quality. Superbly equipped and very clean and the garden and outdoor area to the rear of the property were just perfect. We are absolutely gutted to be leaving, we’ve loved every minute of our stay at Rowan Cottage. If you turn right out of the cottage, head up the road to the gate, that takes you onto Cubert Common and down into Polly Joke beach - this is highly recommended. It takes around 20-30 minutes dependent on how eager you are - I had our dog so managed it in 20 but a light walk would be around 30, this is a lovely walk and a beautiful beach (best kept secret in Cornwall still after all these years). Recommend the village chip shop in Cubert, Bowgie Inn in West Pentire for the views (and really improved over the last few years) and just near a scenic walk around to Polly Joke featuring Poppy fields around beg - late June. Thanks to the Owner for reaching out when we booked our stay and to Holly for being so helpful in the lead up to our stay. A wonderful cottage, amazingly located. We will be back.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback We are pleased to hear you have had a great stay at Rowan Cottage. Polly Joke is my favourite beach. We look forward to welcoming you to stay again in the future. Carol Property Owner

    The Garden is beautiful and well maintained. This matches the interior. There are lots of little touches that make the holiday a joy. I have mobility issues and the suite downstairs was exceptional. It wasn't just an add on it was tastefully decorated with no expense spared. The kitchen was well equipped with modern appliances. Considering the cottage allows dog's there was no doggy smell. Praise for the cleaners. It was spotless. Communication with the host was excellent. Private parking a bonus.

    But this didn’t detract from us from enjoying the comfort of the cottage. There was everything you would need for everyday life, Spare light bulbs, batteries, laundry facilities, Cleaning equipment, games etc A well thought out Holiday Cottage, Would love to return

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback which is always greatly appreciated. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Rowan Cottage. Regarding your comments on the sitting room. We have a good size three seater sofa and a two seater with a additional chair in the dining room-should guests require extra seating. Our aim is to provide enough comfy seating for six guests and as with any of the rooms, we have tried to place furniture in a way to allow guests to not only have comfort and usefulness, but also to have plenty of movement around the cottage. We note that you have marked us down on Facilities and Maintenance and are assuming this is the items mentioned in your check out note ie. the toaster only working on one side of the 4 slice toaster . It was all working and is just a case of pushing down one side first. We do leave instruction booklets for appliances as we appreciate that guests may not be familiar with all brands. We also ask guests to notify our Property Manager during your stay if anything is not as you would expect it to be. We would much prefer to sort out any problems whilst you are there, if possible, rather than hear about them afterwards. We want all our guests to have a great stay at our properties. Property Owner

    As soon as you walk in it feels like home, with everything you need provided. Super clean, and as a Housekeeping Manager I have a high standard. Comfortable beds and the showers are superb. The garden is lovely and perfect for dogs. The best part, it's location, with the stunning common just up the road leading to Polly Joke Bay, which is a beautiful beach. You can also access Holywell Bay from the common which brought back so many memories. Going further afield we also explored the amazing Bodmin Moor, Boscastle and Tintagel. All made more perfect as we had Rowan cottage to come back too. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, especially to Holly, who is a star. We will return.

    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.

The property

Rowan Cottage sleeps up to 6 adults plus one child under 2 in a cot.

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.

The accommodation is laid out over two floors and surrounded by a beautiful garden to the front, rear and side enclosed by Cornish stone wall and a five bar gate.

Step into the property and on the ground floor and to your right, you'll find a well equipped kitchen and a cosy and comfortable sitting room.

On your left is a dining room which overlooks the garden and leads on into the Master Bedroom with en-suite and comfy king sized bed.

Upstairs in the property you'll find two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

To the left (at the top) of the stairs you will find a bedroom with a cosy and comfortable double bed with shuttered windows overlooking the front garden.

To the right of the stairs is another bedroom: This room can be laid out as a twin with single beds or as a super-king.

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

Here there is a large walk in shower, wash basin and a WC.

The property has an enclosed garden, the front garden faces South West, so benefits from the sun all day, and is laid to lawn with lots of planting and pretty flower beds.

There is plenty of room in the garden so surf boards, bikes and beach paraphernalia can be stored.
