The delightful and charming village of Veryan on the Roseland Peninsula is most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses. There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by a missionary named Reverend Jeremiah Trist for his daughters. In a round house there are no corners where the devil can hide. A crucifix on the top of each one adds extra protection!
Veryan is ideally located for exploring the Roseland Peninsula and is only moments from the spectacular Carne Beach or the dramatic coastline around the historic fishing village of Portloe. Nearby is the lovingly restored Melinsey Mill where you can relax in a charming valley with a delicious Cornish cream tea.
There is a pub in Veryan called the New Inn which serves meals or you could enjoy some superb Crab at the Ship Inn at Portloe, only a 5 minute drive away. There are high quality restaurants at the Nare Hotel or around nearby Portscatho & St Mawes. There are village stores in Veryan or alternatively mini supermarkets at the nearby Bessy Beneath filling station or in the village of Tregony.

We found Laburnum Cottage to be extremely comfortable for our party of five. The living area is spacious with two small lounges and a large dining room. The kitchen is large, modern and very well equipped. The cottage has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The three bedrooms are a good size with comfortable beds, and the bathroom and en-suite are both modern, fresh and clean. The garden is well presented and large enough for a party to sit out comfortably in the summer. The location in Veryan on the Roseland Peninsula is fantastic with good local amenities within walking distance and all likely Cornish attractions easily accessible.

Laburnum cottage is a 10 min walk from Veryan with its pub, post office and couple of tea and craft shops. It provides easy access to several sandy beaches (take your choice depending on wind direction and tide), St Mawes, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and a fine stretch of the coast path. The cottage has 3 well proportioned double bedrooms with quirky shutters on the windows (we loved them) and sufficient storage space for a short stay. The 'sunny corner' is a lovely 'all-day' sun-trap for eating breakfast or reading a book tho' I wish the garden wall was slightly lower so that I could see more of the adjoining fields. The garden is small and well maintained.

Delightful cottage in lovely quiet village. Short walk to playground. Scenic drive to St Mawes, beaches etc great location. Very child friendly, box of toys and kids' step and kids' armchairs (which they loved!) provided. Very well equipped kitchen and spacious dining area. All spotlessly clean. A comfy sofa in sitting room would be a great addition.

Laburnum Cottage is a very well restored cottage with high quality fittings, good village position. Very well looked after in excellent condition. We had a good stay which was spoilt by the inability of the cottage to seat six adults comfortably, there are two small lounges with hard furniture that seat four in each room. The hot water system is inadequate for six adults and there is no control offered for the heating system. No welcome pack provided (some previous visitors had them !) Cornwall Cottages told us that the photos of the property clearly show the living room layout, and that they do not offer welcome packs. They declined to comment on the hot water or other points raised with them, they say that these have been passed to the owners for their comments. This cottage is ideal for a young family but not for adults holidaying together.
Guest from Gravesend stayed for 7 nights.
A few negatives worth mentioning - but they didn't outweigh the positives! The furniture in the two living rooms was not the most comfortable. Definitely on the small size! Unless I just couldn't find them I don't think there was a broom or mop. Keys to one of the exterior doors was missing. (The owners offered to sort this but I didn't think it was worth getting someone over) (I contacted the owner re: failed light bulbs but agreed it wasn't worth getting someone over as they would be at the house themselves immediately after us)

We had a lovely week in Laburnum Cottage which is very homely cottage. The facilities were excellent, our only criticism was that provision of logs would be useful.
Guest from Arbroath stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely house in a lovely area. Would happily return. The kitchen / dinning area was fantastic. Looking at the house form the outside does not do it justice. Very well renovated and owners should be proud.
Guest from Harrogate stayed for 7 nights.
We had a wonderful stay. The cottage is situated in a beautiful area of Cornwall. The cottage itself is very well presented. It's great to stay somewhere that looks exactly as it appears on the website.

The Portloe Boathouse possesses probably the most astonishing view of any holiday cottage in Cornwall! Perched right on the cliff overlooking the delightful little harbour at this magical village on the Roseland Peninsula, this is simply, in our opinion one of the most amazing places to stay in Cornwall.
