  • "Beautiful cottage sympathetically refurbished."

    Well equipped and tastefully decorated. Cream tea and fresh flowers a lovely treat. Great location, short drive to fantastic beaches. Local pub serving good food 5 minutes walk.

  • "Thank you, we really appreciated the cream tea and milk on our arrival, a nice touch after a long journey."

    Unfortunately we were disappointed to find there weren’t any logs for the wood burner as the photos had shown. It would have made the cottage cosy especially on our first night. The garden is very secure, great for our dog to wander around. We visit Cornwall every year and this was our first time at Rose Cottage. Great location and we enjoyed our week in this fabulous county as always. The cottage would benefit from a little up dating.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage."

    We had a great week with the bonus of good weather. It is a lovely stay in a well equipped cottage. The only possible drawbacks were the steps up to the garden. When we arrived it had been raining and we were a bit concerned about slipping on the slate. Perhaps some sort of hand rail would be good just to make you feel more secure. Likewise the stairs in the cottage were at a bit of an angle, perhaps that should have been stressed. However we would still have booked! It is a lovely cottage in a beautiful area. Great stay. On a nit picking note it would have been handy to have a torch in the property for use at night to negotiate the steps in the passage to the bathroom but that was not a problem. Thank you for a lovely stay!!

  • "The cottage is tired in appearance and is in need of some general repair and maintenance."

    It requires redecoration throughout, the garden needs tidying up and the windows and doors need some attention. The cottage is damp and needs the heating leaving on a low level. The kitchen cupboards are dirty and the kitchen is not very well equipped in terms of crockery, cutlery and utensils. For the rate charged for the property, I expected a much higher standard. I will not be looking to return.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the lovely Rose Cottage."

    A beautiful house, in a secluded and quiet part of Wadebridge, but only a 5 minute walk into town, and idealy located for places like Padstow, Port Issac, Constantine etc. Two lovely bathrooms, particularly loved the shower room just off the kitchen, which is handy when you have a family of 5 coming back from the beach. The garden is lovely, with seating area, full of butterflies, and an ideal place to kick back with a glass of wine after a busy day out. Parking space was fantastic, in an area where parking is somewhat at a premium, with steps leading up to the garden. Bedrooms were perfect, with the trundle bed, which is basically a full sized single, being ideal. Great, well equipped kitchen, and nice big dining table, and a lovely lounge area. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay in this part of Cornwall.

    A stair gate at the bottom would have been useful, as would a liquidiser, but otherwise all we could have wished for.

  • "Overall a fantastic property, had a great holiday with two adults and baby under 1."

    Lovely location, easy walking distance to Wadebridge. Spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen. Nice garden to spend the evenings in the sunshine. Stair gate upstairs and high chair provided. Would definitely recommend walking to Wadebridge, hiring bicycles and doing the Camel Trail into Padstow - absolutely beautiful. Only things to note were that the upstairs got very warm during the day and one of the steps was loose on the way from the house to the garden. We would certainly stay again if in the area. Thank you.

  • "We absolutely loved your cottage."

    We have a wonderful, memorable, pre-Christmas family get together. It had everything we needed, the kitchen equipment served all our needs. Thank you. It would have be good to have access before 4pm, that's really late compared to other properties we have stayed in. An automatic light on the entrance would be really useful in the dark winter months.

  • "The cottage was perfect for us because of the option to arrive on a Friday, the size of the property, two parking spaces on site and the location because we were four adults attending a wedding at Egloshayle church the day after our arrival, we were able to walk to the church for the wedding and short drive to Pencarrow House for the reception."

    Quiet location but easy 20 minutes walk to Wadebridge and close to drive to Padstow, or there is a bus stop by the church. All facilities you need for a comfortable stay, the kitchen was very well equipped. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds and pillows were comfortable, the two bathrooms were great to have and bath sheets also very good quality. We would be very happy to stay again.

  • "A lovely property, comfortable and cosy with all the things we needed in the kitchen."

    As the weather wasn't fabulous it was nice to enjoy the logburner in the evening. All the information we needed about the cooker, microwave and other appliances was readily available. The location is very handy for Wadebridge but quiet and restful. It's a bit of a hill to get back if walking. Not a problem for us but just to mention in case anyone has mobility issues. We would recommend this property and certainly consider staying again - Thanks!

    I'm very jealous - I would love to be able to buy something like it. The location is excellent - Wadebridge has everything you can need.

  • "The garden whilst nice it was not clear that the garden was up steps from the cottage."

    The steps were a bit difficult to navigate with the bushes being overgrown especially difficult to carry an infant up the steps. The high chair straps were dirty and whilst we tried to clean them it proved not possible with what cleaning items we had available and therefore we could not use it.

    Nice garden. Decent parking. Warning: very steep stairs. Needs a hairdrier or 2 and instructions for the downstairs shower, we only got it working by guesswork.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have now purchased hairdryers for future guests. We hope you visit our cottage again in the future. Property Owner

    Thank you for your feedback, as mentioned in the property description Rose Cottage, has a raised lawn garden complete with a traditional cottage garden which is regularly maintained. Property Owner

    It’s a wonderful cottage in a great area. We were greeted with a beautiful bunch of tulips and a delicious cream tea (scones, jam & cream). Great dog walks, short walk to the centre of Wadebridge, the local rugby team play just down the road, friendly neighbours.

  • "A lovely holiday and wonderful cottage."

    We had two issues that weren’t resolved. The kitchen back door key was not available and we reported this immediately. We had one call back to ask us to look in certain places but the key was still not found. I reported this and expected a call back. Instead I had an email saying that the issue had been completed! Not so! We later read the visitors book and it seems that the key has been missing since August! Possibly the lock/ key issue should have been resolved six months on! Also the TV wasn’t working and we only discovered this a few days into the holiday but couldn’t get through to report it until the 4th Jan. not a big issue but it would have been nice to have had a call back or the problem fixed for our last two days. All in all a lovely cottage and holiday with two minor unresolved issues!

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, despite searching high and low, the back door key has currently gone missing. We are in the process of arranging a replacement key. We are sorry for any inconvenience this caused. We did receive your report of the faulty TV but you had mentioned that it was not a bother and that you wanted to make us aware so it could be looked at on changeover. The TV has since been checked and is working fine. We are glad to hear you liked the cottage. - The Cornish Cottage Holidays Team Property Owner

    Would just say that the stairs are steep and could be tricky if you're not too steady on your feet. They slope slightly and not too wide if you have big feet. But it just adds character to this little treasure.

The property

Wadebridge 1 mile.

A quintessential Cornish cottage nestled in the sleepy village of Egloshayle, Rose Cottage makes a superb choice for your escape to Cornwall.

Boasting a contemporary interior and a desirable touring base for exploring Cornwall, this cottage offers all you could need for a relaxing break with your loved ones.

Park up in your two designated parking spaces, before entering through the gate to the well-maintained gardens of your home-from-home.

Step inside and make your way into the sitting room where you can light up the woodburning stove sat within the exposed stone inglenook and sink into one of the plush sofas sat beneath the exposed wooden beams while admiring the tasteful décor on the shelves, with plenty more to see throughout the cottage.

Venture into the bright and airy dining room, also decorated to a high standard, following the doorway through to the impressive kitchen where you can find all of the wonderful appliances of an electric double oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and a dishwasher sat amongst stylish units and worktops, with a sleek breakfast bar here too for less formal dining occasions.

Take the doors out from the kitchen to your very own hidden patio area, a lovely spot for alfresco dining or a refreshing beverage with your loved one, before taking the staircase to the first floor to discover the beautiful bedrooms.

To the right of the staircase rests a double bedroom, while to the left sits both a double and a single bed with a truckle bed beneath it, offering a lovely layout for families of six, with each room boasting a simple yet stylish interior as well as a charming window seat where you can delve into a good book and admire the views of the village below.

Also on the first floor rests the family bathroom offering both a bath and a shower over to choose from, while the ground floor offers a spacious wet room with a walk-in shower, providing plenty of space for guests to prepare for their day.

A delightful cottage garden with steps leading from the front of the cottage through boarders and a terrace to a spacious raised lawn which is perfect for all the family to enjoy.

Let your canine companion play on the lawn before pulling on your walking boots and heading out to explore the local area; Egloshayle is a fantastic rural base, with the neighbouring town of Wadebridge found just a scenic stroll away past the River Camel offers all you could need for a self-catered stay including a scatter of shops, pubs and eateries, as well as North Cornwall's only family-owned cinema, making a lovely way to while away the hours on a leisurely day out.

There are plenty of walking routes to follow from your doorstep including the popular Camel Trail, with 17 miles of traffic-free walking, cycling and horse riding routes to explore.

If you’re a watersports fan or keen to try your hand then you are also ideally located to discover the range of sandy beaches this North Coast region is famed for; Harlyn Bay, Treyarnon, Trevone and Constantine are all within a 20 minute drive and many offer surf board hire and lessons.

Nearby Padstow is foodie heaven; this charming harbour town is home to some celebrity chef’s own restaurants and there are a range of fashionable art galleries and boutique shops to explore.

If the high seas are calling, then why not try your hand at a spot of sea-fishing or go on a sea-safari’s with one of the many charter boats in the harbour.

A little further afield the seaside hot spots of Rock, Daymer Bay and Port Isaac are also worth a visit.

If exploring on dry land are more your thing then Pencarrow House and Garden is a Grade II* country house with beautiful gardens, an Iron Age hill fort, children’s play area, café and gift shop is worth exploring.

Alternatively for a a family-fun day out be sure to visit the Camel Creek Adventure Park, an all-weathers’ attraction with a range of rides and petting areas the little ones are sure to love.
