About Kate and Kevin Thomas
We moved to Cornwall as a family in October 2010 with the intention of setting up our own holiday letting business and to have our own Cornish escape from our previous lifestyle.
We are Kate and Kevin Thomas and have 3 young boys who love the freedom of the great outdoors.
Little Rosewarne is a smallholding of some 9 acres and in the past has had its own dairy herd. We started to convert the old cattle shed and creamery at the beginning of 2012 and wanted to maintain the character of the building while providing a sustainable future for the farm. Our next project is to convert the old piggery and stables into further accommodation. Work on this will begin in 2013.
We keep chickens at Little Rosewarne and currently enjoy eggs from 3 Copper Marans, 2 Speckled Marans and one Cream Legbar. We also raise Berkshire pigs. These are black haired and famed for their great quality pork.
Kate and Kevin Thomas purchased this cottage in 2010
Why Kate and Kevin Thomas chose Porthleven
We bought Little Rosewarne after holidaying in the Porthleven area over the past 20 years. We know the area well and would spend most of our holiday time either in Porthleven or towards Falmouth.
When we made the decision to move to Cornwall we knew we wanted to be close to the things and areas we loved. However, we had never been to Godolphin Cross or for that matter Godolphin House. But when we saw Little Rosewarne, we fell in love with the place and felt with its proximity to the areas we enjoyed spending time in, it would make the ideal place for us to live and raise our family.
Little Rosewarne itself is a traditional Cornish farmhouse with extensive gardens. We wanted to buy a property where there was the potential for a blank canvas and for us to make our own mark. The first of which is The Old Dairy. It also means we are close at hand if we are needed.
The area is stunning because it is situated near to Godolphin House with easy access to the the beach and fantastic areas and places to explore.
What makes this cottage unique
We believe that 'The Old Dairy' and 'Hayloft' at Little Rosewarne is the perfect place to escape to, and explore this part of Cornwall. We hope that having spent many years staying in quality holiday accommodation we have worked out what works and what is sometimes missing and it is to this end we hope we can provide that little something extra. If you feel we have forgotten something or there is something we can do to improve your stay then please ask.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great stay at the Old Dairy. We felt at home very soon. Brand new home with great facilities and everything available. Very good price/quality ratio. We enjoyed the lovely kitchen and bath rooms, the balcony, the Orchard at our disposure. Great authentic area from where there are lots of nice trips to make. Nice and helpful owners. One week was in fact much too short.
