  • "Lovely cottage in great location for Eden project and the little villages by the coast."

    It has a nice secluded garden which out dog loved but beware as they can jump over the wall to the neighbours if it’s a Medium / large dog. Upon arrival we had 3 towels (one bath sheet and two hand towels) the 4 of us and needed to request more. We got in Touch with the management company provided towels for all of us and a couple of toilet rolls. There was no coffee or sugar provided and only salt and pepper so bring your own. There is no freezer in the proerty either which is a missing if you want ice creams or to keep frozen food etc. There was no mattress protector on the double bed either and the pillows are synthetic so not easy to sleep with. Also there were not enough glasses for water and no shower curtain in the bath and the kitchen table is just enough for 4 plates. everything else was ok. The large bedroom was great but the double bed there was small and lucky fitted for out two teenagers , the second bedroom was tiny with a large double bed but hardly any space to move around it or to keep the luggage in the room. We’ve given it 4 stars as there is room for improvements by the owner and will be happy to come back as the price was fair for what’s been provided .

  • "The inside of the cottage surpassed our expectations, but unfortunately the outside rendering needed repairs and painting to bring it to the same standard The cottage was very comfortable, well equipped and clean and we had a lovely stay."

    The reason we couldn’t give full marks for the facilities is because the main heater, a light in the bathroom and the iron did not work from the start. Carly at SM Management was very helpful and arranged for an electrician who fixed the heater and the light but not the iron. Carly even offered to personally deliver a portable heater. Suggested improvement to the cottage are a shower and splash guard, a small freezer and fix the musty smell in the utility room

  • "The property was very clean and tidy, the only downside was the smell of damp in the downstairs toilet, it was very cold in there, but it is a utility room."

    Everything else was good. The garden was was but cared for. The whole cottage was minimalist but comfortable.

  • "Apart from no hot water for 2 mornings very enjoyable stay and the dogs loved it ."

    I do recommend a shower curtain though and the iron needs a new fuse, and possibly a clothes rail in 2nd bedroom in case of 2 separate families, location is excellent. I will definitely be booking again

  • "In view of previous reviews I have to say cottage was spotless."

    However the main radiator did not work and when we switched on bathroom towel rail the electric tripped. When this was reported the comment was yes we know about this. So begs the question why hasn’t it been fixed as was mentioned in previous reviews. Therefore will not be returning.

  • "Lovely little cottage ideally situated between north and south Cornwall."

    It wasn’t clean, dust, cobwebs etc generally lack of TLC - had some issues which were dealt with. A diamond in the rough, with attention to detail and a few additional necessities ie freezer could be amazing. Quiet friendly area - previously stayed at a Sykes cottage in Derbyshire which had a fabulous welcome pack - here we didn’t get anything!!!! Is this a county choice???

  • "Good base for visiting Cornwall."

    Overall cleanliness is very very poor. Needs a good clean including the windows. And needs painting and finishing in certain areas too. I did alert Sykes to this at the end of our stay as I noticed more and more as the week went on (in the hope cleaning would improve for future visitors) however didn't seem bothered and offered no apologies or assurance it would be cleaned properly by the cleaning company . Couldn't get free view on TV and internet connection was quite poor.

  • "When was the lawn last mowed?"

    , perhaps the gardener should check the lawn before new guests arrive at the establishment between 10.00 am / 3.00 pm to do whatever is necessary. Cleanliness of the property was something left to be desired, cobwebs and dust were found in all rooms especially behind headboards, ceilings and above fridge under worktop. Unpleasant odour from rug, cushions and smell of mould throughout downstairs.

  • "We were disappointed with how small the cottage was and how unsuitable it was for a family of 4."

    The facilities were also disappointing, we had no freezer or proper shower, it was extremely difficult to shower in the property due to this, It leaked all over the floor as there was no proper shower facilities. We were also disappointed with the lack of welcome pack, there was nothing to welcome us when we had spent a lot of money to stay. We were also frustrated with the parking as we were staying in a residential area with the locals, we were blocked in a few times, clearly couldn’t care we had the property for the week. The area was awful, the house next door was derelict and unlocked and I didn’t feel safe as who knows who could have been staying in there. We will never stay in this house or Roche again.

  • "This cottage is well located for exploring all Cornwall."

    Great base for cycling to Padstow, the Camel trail back to Bodmin and then back to Roche. The village has a great pub and plenty of takeaways for those not wishing to cook. A well stocked Coop is also close by. Very cosy!

Situated at the heart of the village of Roche in Cornwall, and being at the centre of Cornwall itself, The Old Coach House is a delectable whitewashed cottage, providing you with the chance to explore all areas of the southwest of England.

As you approach the cottage you will notice its character and charm, step through the green door into the beamed dwelling and the lovely contemporary open-plan living space.

The kitchen is well-equipped for all your dining needs and there is also a utility/cloakroom.

The two bright and cozy double bedrooms provides a perfect, tranquil resting spot for your trip.

Outside is a lovely enclosed garden area where you can relax and enjoy hours underneath the sun.

The property has parking for two cars and an outbuilding for storing equipment such as bikes and surfboards.

The local village of Roche has all the amenities and shops you need.

The local pub, takeaway restaurants, local butchers, grocers, supermarket, pharmacy and post office are all within a few minutes’ walk from the cottage.

Within the village you can also find the tourist attraction of the historic Roche Rock, surrounded by glorious walking routes and beautiful settings, offering an ideal dog walk.

The Eden Project is just a 10min drive away.

A short journey will bring you to the quaint ports of Charlestown, Mevagissey and Fowey, or the historic town of Bodmin. The popular seaside surfing town of Newquay is just 20 minutes away.

With plenty of local beaches, coastal paths and other tourist-friendly activities, it’s well worth a visit.

About the location


Bugle 2 miles; Bodmin 6 miles; Wadebridge 9 miles.

Both the villages of Roche and nearby Lanivet offers a small selection of shops and pubs and are situated just off the A30, six miles from Bodmin. The area is predominantly involved with agriculture and the countryside is lush, green and undulating. Perfectly placed for touring the whole of Cornwall with the wild open spaces of Bodmin Moor just six miles away and the ruggedly beautiful north coast with its rocky coves, high cliffs and outstanding surfing beaches just thirty minutes by car. The resort town of Newquay with the new Fistral Beach surf centre and the fishing village of Padstow with its narrow streets, quaint harbour and renowned restaurants should not be missed nor should the fabulous Eden Project with its spectacular biomes full of tropical plants just four miles down the road. The south coast too is just ten miles away and trips to the shipwreck centre at Charlestown, the fishing village of Mevagissey and the beautiful Roseland peninsula should not be missed.
