About Andrew Martin

We love Cornwall & our part of Cornwall. After many years in London we moved back to Andrews home in the West Country to enjoy a better lifestyle. We bought Rowse - a 400 year old farmhouse & estate - in 2004 & have worked hard to restore it. It is now a beautiful home for us & our guests to enjoy.

Andrew Martin purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Andrew Martin chose Pillaton

We bought Rowse because of its secluded, peaceful location & its beautiful 40 acres of woods, pasture, streams & gardens. It is important to us that our guests enjoy their holiday, and as self catering cottage users ourselves, we have made sure our 3 cottages are comfortable, clean, well equipped and most importantly fun to stay in!

On so many occasions our guests tell us they have never been so relaxed after staying here - Rowse is a special place!

What makes this cottage unique

Guests in all three cottages receive free memberships at the nearby and exclusive China Fleet Club. These allow 2 adults and up to 4 children per cottage special member rates for use of the luxury Aqua Spa, heated indoor swimming pool, modern gym, racquet courts and 10% discounts on the restaurant and cafe. There is also 10% discount on Spa treatments.

Ideal Cottage to chill out

  • 5 of 5

Nice small and silent cottage. The equipment (like refrigerator, washingmachine and so on) seems to be almost new. The friendly landlords live nearby but not to close. If you have any questions, they are pleased to suggest trips, some written suggestions also available. A nice old Pub is just 10 minutes walk away. We had beautiful days at the Kellwyk Cottage.

Beautiful Cottage (Kellywick)

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was better than we had imagined. The location was perfect as it was easy to visit both Cornwall and Devon and the many attractions and excellent restaurants were close by. The cottage itself was so private and you felt relaxed. The facilities were excellent and everything was spotlessly clean. The cottage is well looked after with modern facilities. The manager was very friendly and welcoming and was available readily for any information or help without being invasive. I would definitely recommend this property to both family and friends and we hope to visit again soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday here at Rowse. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful, peaceful part of Cornwall and yet it is the perfect base from which to explore both Devon & Cornwall. As for our 3 cottages we do our best to make them a proper home from home, so again we are delighted you thought the same! We hope to see you again one day!

Nous avons cuisiner tout les jours et il avait mème pas du sel ou poivre huile et vinaigre. Pour le lavevaissel il y avait pas asser de tabs. Mème pas de poudre a laver, pas de papier de toilette. On savait pas, si on recoit du linge propre pour notre 2ème semaine de séjour.

Owner's Response: Dear Beatrice, We are shocked at your review. We have been managing our cottages for 12 years & always have 5 star reviews. If you had questions about the cottage why did you not discuss when you were here? To answer your points clearly: * Our cottages are professionally cleaned and checked on every changeover. They are never dirty or dusty. * your comment about 'pestilence' is damaging and untrue. If you refer to an occasional spider or fly, well this is the country! * The dining chairs are high but are designed as eating chairs in the kitchen - nobody else has ever mentioned they are too high. * We provide as standard salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, tea, a homemade cream tea & milk. * We provide 7 dishwasher tablets & special eco dishwashing soap. * We provide 2 toilet rolls per bathroom. * We give clean towels & bedding every week. * In July we do not need heating. But in your cottage there was electric heating you could have turned on in each room if you wished. There was no need to be cold! The above is our standard practice, and we are independently assessed by our agency as 4 star accommodation. so we are very puzzled as to your comments & poor rating. We think this is very unfair and damaging to our business. If you had such issues when you were here why did you not say something? And why post your review 3 months later? Reviews are really important and we ask all our guests for such. But yours is very unfair and also untrue, and we cannot understand why you should do this.

Für Ruhesuchende ein perfekter Platz

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 1 Woche im Cottage, was uns sehr gut gefallen hat. Ein genialer Platz, um zur Ruhe zu kommen und dennoch ist man mit einem Auto

in kurzer Zeit an den interessantesten Plätzen. Das Cottage war gut ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Andrew war sehr hilfsbereit und sehr nett.

Wir waren bestimmt kein letztes Mal dort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Its great you enjoyed your stay in Kellywyk & that you had fun exploring Cornwall from here. And your plan of flying to Newquay saves a lot of driving, although, being by the River Tamar, we have probably some of the closest Cornish holiday cottages to Dover, Heathrow, Bristol & Exeter. We hope to see you again one day - you are always very welcome!

zwei Wochen in Skyber

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in Skyber zwei Wochen mit vier Personen verbracht. Das Haus ist mit seinen zwei Schlafzimmern und zwei Bädern für vier Personen optimal eingerichtet und sehr schön gelegen. Die Ruhe und die Abgeschiedenheit von Hauptstraßen und Städten eignet sich hervorragend zur Entspannung und zum Durchatmen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in der Nähe. Ein Auto ist jedoch erforderlich.

Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen.

January 2017. PLEASE NOTE GOOGLE EARTH PHOTO IS 2005 & 11 YEARS OUT OF DATE! ALL OUR COTTAGES NOW HAVE PRIVATE GARDENS. Rowse is not a working farm, but is a 40 acre private estate set near the beautiful, protected Tamar Valley in South East Cornwall. Although easy to access, this region is often referred to as the 'forgotten' part of Cornwall. It offers peace & tranquility but is in easy reach of the many fabulous beaches, great coastal walks, pretty little villages, the dramatic moors such as Dartmoor & Bodmin Moor & many of Cornwall's and Devon's well known attractions.

So, if you would like a really quiet place to stay, relax in 5 star comfort and want to enjoy one of England's most beautiful counties, then a holiday cottage at Rowse would be ideal for you!

As a bonus, guests staying in all our cottages (2 adults & 2 children per cottage) receive free memberships at the exclusive China Fleet Country Club 10 minutes away. These allow special discounted rates for the leisure club and golf all year round. Please contact the owners for more details.
