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 al 'welcome pack' containing coffee, tea, milk and a home made Cornish cream tea.

Tikkidew - Rowse Farm Cottages

  • 5 of 5

Its hard to write an honest review of Rowse and the hospitality offered by the owners, because if I do we may find it is always fully booked! We have stayed in Tikkidew on several occasions now and our expectations are always exceeded. Sally and Andrew are the perfect hosts unobtrusive but available when needed. The accommodation is well laid out and furnished and we have yet to find that a item we need is missing. We take full advantage of the golf offer at St Mellion and whilst we have experienced some changes over the last couple of years as the two courses have undergone development and improvement, they are great courses which we throughly enjoy playing.

Our golfing holiday at Tikkidew

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Tikkidew and our fourth to the Rowse Cottages. The cottage is iseal for us as we spend most of the day on the golf courses of St Mellion (which is only a 5 minute drive away) and enjoy long, peaceful evenings in front of the woodburner when we return. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge area is large enough to entertain 2 guests as well. Andrew and Sally are excellent hosts and we always look forward to our cream tea upon arrival! We feel so much at home here and would highly recommend the property to any fellow golfers and couples looking for a lovely setting and wonderful value for money. Paul and Hayley, Haslington, Cheshire.

Rowse is a 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 Farm would be ideal for you.

Guests staying in Skyber & Tikkidew receive free golf & leisure memberships at the fabulous China Fleet Country Club 10 minutes away. Please contact the owners for more details.
