Rowse Farm Cottages: Rowse is a 400 year old Grade 2 listed farmhouse set in its own private estate near the beautiful, protected Tamar Valley in South East Cornwall. With easy access from London, Rowse offers a perfect location for that quiet, country holiday that many are seeking. The well known holiday attractions of the West Country - the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, The National Marine Aquaium, the beaches on both North & South coats of Cornwall, the Moors, the National Trust houses at Cotehele, Saltram & Landhydrock - are all within easy reach of Rowse. The well known coastal villages of Looe & Polperro are also nearby.

The three cottages at Rowse are all self contained, and have been skilfully converted to provide comfortable, peaceful and well appointed accommodation. Skyber is popular with families, and both Kellywyk & Tikkidew offer private retreats for couples. Tikkidew in particular is well suited to a romantic break with its privacy & galleried bedroom.

All guests will receive a special welcome - those little extras that can make arriving on holiday just that bit more special. This is a 'welcome pack' containing coffee, tea, milk and a home made Cornish cream tea.

If you require a special break, please contact the owners directly

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 Devon

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

For guests staying in Skyber & Tikkidew between April 1st to October 31st, we give FREE passes to the nearby China Fleet private Club. Here guests can use the luxury Aqua Spa, swim in the heated indoor pool, use the racket courts, modern gym, & leisure facilities FREE any day with our compliments. There bis also discounted golf on the beautiful 18 hole course by the River Tamar.

Please ask for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We saw many beautiful places - Dartmoor, Tavistock, Warren House Inn at Postbridge, Padstow, Bedruthan Steps, Llanhydrock, Cotehele, Tintagel & Dartmouth. And we slept so well! This was the best holiday for a long time!

A great family holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Skyber was a very comfortable cottage for my family of 4. It was well situated for both the beach and surrouding countryside. We were made to feel very welcome, but had plenty of privacy too! A great place to stay would, recommend whole heartedly.

Schöne Herbstferien in Conrwall

  • 5 of 5

Unseren Herbsturlaub vom 11.10.2010 bis 18.10.2010 haben wir im wunderschönen Cornwall im Cottage der Familie Martin verbracht. Neben einem spätsommerlichen Herbst bot das Cottage und die Umgebung alles was zu einem erholsamen Urlaub beiträgt. Den Vermietern, Sally und Andrew ( und Hund Bruno ;-) ein herzliches Dankeschön für die Gastfreundlichkeit.

skyber

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei Wochen im Sommer 2009 in "Skyber" verbracht und uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist modern und sehr gut ausgestattet, auch in der Küche fehlt es an nichts. Auch an Regentagen kann man sich gemütlich im Haus aufhalten. Bei der Belegung mit zwei Paaren kommt man sich nicht ins Gehege, weil die Schlafzimmer mit dazugehörigem Duschbad jeweils rechts bzw. links vom Wohn-/ Essraum liegen. Der Vermieter ist freundlich, zurückhaltend, aber jederzeit erreichbar. Er hat an alles gedacht. Im nahen 4-Sterne Hotel St. Mellion kann man Schwimmbad, Sauna und Internet (in der Lobby) kostenlos nutzen. Die dazugehörigen beiden Golfplätze kann man als Mieter in Skyber mit 4 Personen kostenlos nutzen. Ein Paradies für Golger! Die Golfplätze sind sehr gepflegt und die teuersten der Gegend. Auch die Nähe zum Meer würde uns veranlassen, immer wieder in "Skyber" zu wohnen, wenn wir dort sind. Eine wirklich schöne Zeit!
