About Alan Roberson
We have both been teaching in a local primary school and are now retired. Our children are all grown up and spread around the country so the plan is to tour the UK and Europe with our caravan.
Alan Roberson purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Alan Roberson chose Saint Ervan
A delightful rural location yet close enough to beaches and the Camel estuary for all the watersports we both enjoy.

Lovely house idyllic spot
Alan was very welcoming and on hand for any problems - there weren't any!
The Long Barn is in a beautiful spot, with prime spots like Padstow, Wadebridge and Newquay all fairly close by.
The barn is well equipped, beds are very comfortable and lots of storage space. We had a lovely week in Cornwall.
Very glad you enjoyed your stay.
Beautiful, comfortable & cosy retreat
We loved it! The owners had provided everything anybody could possibly need including thoughtful touches like flowers & welcome groceries. A great location too - so peaceful & quiet.
A lovely property and a fantastic location
We had such a wonderful stay. Alan was a great host and the barn was so cosy. There were plenty of toys for our little boy. His favourite thing to play with was the rock on the fireplace though! Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Thank you for a wonderful holiday :)
Lovely spot for visiting so many places Cornwall has to offer
Friendly owners who are on site to help with anything you need, and not forgetting Quinn! Clean comfortable location with a nice selection of toys for our young children. All the facilities you can need for Cornish weather, rain or shine. We will be back.
Fantastic stay in a beautiful barn
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home. Great accommodation in a fantastic location. Alan and Karen made us most welcome, allowing us to wonder in their lovely garden around old mill ponds. Alan went above and beyond posting on to us an item we had let behind. Thanks again I would recommend your home to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
Very pleasant stay
Wonderful and well equipped cottage (ice cube machine!). Everything you need for a relaxed holiday. The coast path with spectacular views is just a couple of minutes away. Very warm welcome with flowers, milk and wine. Strongly recommended.
Within 10 minutes driving are the five fabulous beaches surrounding Trevose head. All are stunning sandy beaches offering lifeguarded swimming areas as well as excellent surfing. For calmer conditions choose one of the sheltered beaches on the Camel estuary leading towards Padstow.
This area is a delight for water sports enthusiasts. Sailing and waterskiing are very popular on the Camel estuary. Padstow sailing club is nearby where temporary membership is available.
Newquay airport is 20 minutes driving time from the property. The ferry port of Plymouth is within 40 miles.
Due to the rural nature of the property a car is highly recommended although bus services do run from the bus stop a five minute walk away.
Padstow with harbour, great restaurants, shops and camel trail cycle route is less than 4 miles away.
Within 5 miles are the superb Atlantic beaches of Treyarnon, Constantine, Boobys, Harlyn and Trevone.
Retallack resort and spa offers wake boarding, a spa, indoor pool and flowrider and is 5.5 miles away.
