About Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans

We are Michael Evans, my wife Tine and my daughter Amy, also my parents Frank and Doreen. We have been holidaying in Cornwall and Devon for many years and decided that when my parents finally retired we would all sell up and move to the west country to enjoy the fresh air, wonderful countryside and fantastic beaches.

Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans chose Devon

Glebe barn, with the twin cottages of Tawny and Apple Tree gave us the living space we needed, with the added bonus of the chance of running a holiday let. I have been coming to Whitsand Bay since i was a young boy, and we have rented many holiday lets over the years and always envied the lifestyle and wanted to give it a try for ourselves. We loved the location of the property, it is very private as we are surrounded by woodland, but not too remote making visiting the many sights and places of interest in the area very easy indeed.

What makes this cottage unique

We feel the property offers a unique blend of the tranquility of being surrounded by woodland, and nature at the centre of the Rame Peninsula, whilst also being close to good transport routes, a major city and many other towns and villages of interest of two beautiful counties.

What an amazing place to base yourself in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

To arrive to a smile, home made scones, jam and cream, pint of milk in the fridge went well beyond our expectations. The cottage is immaculately clean and very well equipped. Having been met by Mike and Tine on arrival, nothing was too much to ask. They provide amazing cottages to base yourself out of with so many wonderful places to see and visit locally.

We would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return in the near future ourselves.

Perfect Cornish cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights with our two young children. The cottage is beautifully clean and homely. It literally has everything you could possibly need and was so comfortable to stay in. It is in an excellent location, very close to the coast- we visited Looe and Fowey for crabbing and rock pooling which the kids loved! Michael and Tine were so helpful and friendly and everything was so easy and straightforward. We arrived really late on Friday night and had no problem with keys and arrived to some home made scones, clotted cream and jam and a pint of milk in the fridge as well as tea and coffee which was a lovely welcome!

We will definitely be coming back here and had a lovely break!

Fantastic, clean and cosy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Found this beautiful cottage after searching for ages for somewhere around the Plymouth area and we were not disappointed! Cottage is in a scenic and quite area but only a few minutes from the Plymouth ferry and main roads. Cottage itself is immaculate and very clean on arrival with all the essentials you could ask for. Would most definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Very comfortable and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We were met on arrival by Michael and Tine who showed us around the cottage and explained a few things. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. We had a five night stay which we thoroughly enjoyed, it is a lovely area of Cornwall and we would highly recommend a visit to Glebe Barn Cottages and the general area.

Stayed here with our little man while my partner was on a navy course. Immaculate lovely cottage with lovely welcoming hosts! Not a lot to do close by if you don't drive but lovely little village close by to walk to & a beach! Loved every minute of our stay especially the welcoming scones! Delish! :)

Lovely Cornish cottage

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a seaside break and Tawny Cottage fit the bill perfectly. The kitchen is well kitted out, the living space is cosy and it's all spotlessly clean. The surrounding woodland and nearby river make it a very peaceful area. It's within walk from the beach but also with a short drive to Looe, Rame head, Polperro and all of the local attractions. Finnigook pub is also within walking distance, offering some good pub food. It would be great to go back in the summer!
