Peaceful Cottage

We really enjoyed our week in Ardevora Vean - it is a lovely clean cottage with all of the essentials in a peaceful area on the Roseland Peninsula. We were greeted on arrival and when entering the cottage there were scones with jam and cream qaiting for us. Also a small bottle of milk in the fridge with plenty of tea and coffee for our stay. It was very handy to have cling film and foil in the draw (it's not something we remember to buy when we are self-catering, but we always need it). The cottage was very spacious and comfortable, we loved the huge wet room that has a really strong hot shower. We were able to hire kayaks for the length of our stay for AGBP12 each to use on the creek which is a very short walk away. Things that could possibly be improved: - Small towels given to shower with (good idea to take your own, we did - so it wasn't an issue for us!) - Very bumpy narrow drive down the dirt road to the cottage. - We had no phone signal and there was slow limited wifi (but it didn't bother us too much, as we enjoyed the serenity and it was lovely to just relax playing a game of cards together for a change).

From the Owner:
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and found it peaceful and relaxing. We have just changed our wifi to another provider and it is much much quicker now.

A lovely getaway spot

We were looking for a quiet cottage for a week touring the main attractions in Cornwall and we certainly found it with Ardevora Vean. The cottage was very clean and well appointed, with everything that you need for self catering. The scones with jam and cream that awaited us on arrival were very much appreciated. We loved the local wildlife - blue tits nesting in the rock wall garden and a particularly friendly pheasant which ran beside the car (he was in the field beside the track) as we drove to and from the road. We called him Buddy and he greeted us each morning and evening as we drove the three quarters of a kilometre track down to the mill and cottage. The only slight drawback for us was the lack of mobile signal in the cottage (though 4G miraculously appeared once we were at the top of the drive) and the limited wifi which was ok for emails but slow for surfing the net or downloading. Despite the wifi constraints, we would definitely visit again and would recommend the cottage to our family and friends.

From the Owner:
Thanks for a lovely review, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the pheasants entertaining. We are sorry the wifi was a bit slow for you, but are happy that it would not stop you returning, or recommending us to your friends and family. Hopefully we will meet you again in the future.

Away from it all

This was our first visit and we really enjoyed our stay. A cream tea was waiting for us which was a nice touch. The accommodation was ideal for our needs, well presented, roomy and comfortable and we had all the facilities that we would want. After a hot days walking it was cool to return to and the wet room was ideal. We also appreciated Teri and Andrew's friendly welcome and desire to make sure we were enjoying our stay and the surrounding area. The track down to the cottage is about .7 of a mile and bumpy in parts but we took our time and this was not an issue. We encountered a pheasant on the track a few times but one day there were 16 young ones who were reluctant to move aside which caused some amusement. We took the opportunity of evening walks down to the creek and saw two Fallow Deer browsing on the far side. If revisiting the area we would definitely want to return to Vean.

From the Owner:
It was a pleasure to meet you both. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Ardevora Vean and that you managed to walk the parts of the SW coastal path you planned to do. If you fancy coming to this area again for a more relaxing break then you would be most welcome to stay. Teri

First Class accommodation

The location is ideal if you want to visit Roseland and enjoy all of its beauty and facilities. The cottages are down a farm track with lots of pheasants and rabbits to help you on your way. A warm welcome awaits you. The owners even left us a welcoming cream tea and milk. Everything is provided almost like a hotel. It is clean, well appointed, great cooking facilities and bathroom with one level shower for those less able. You can rent a kayack from the owners if you want to explore the nearby creek. There is a great pub, the Roseland Inn, 10 minutes drive away with fine food, local beer and wine and a great and friendly owner who also cooks for you and his wife serves behind the bar most nights.

From the Owner:
Wow, thanks Chris for such a suberb review. It was lovely to hear that you enjoyed your time here so much. Hope to see you both again in the future.

A world away

Ardevora Vean was a world away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Situated down a 3/4 mile track which is all part of the experience. Isolated in the nicest possible way and very restful. Very comfortable and spacious accommodation and very welcoming and helpful owners. If you are looking for an an isolated and peaceful place to stay then this is it.

From the Owner:
It always lovely to get a 5* review - it shows that we are getting things right for our guests and it's so nice to know our guests are so happy here.

Clean, comfortable cottage in a fabulous countryside location.

We enjoyed our week very much in the cottage, which was clean, warm and comfortable. The conversion had been carried out to a very high standard.The owners were very helpful and friendly, and lots of useful information was provided about what to visit in the area, both by the owners and by the holiday company. The rural location was beautiful, with lots of wildlife in the nearby fields and on the river. The only downside was the very long drive down the farm track to reach the cottage; fine if you have a large car or a 4x4, but a bit nerve-racking if you have a small car which you're quite fond of.

From the Owner:
It is nice to hear that you have had an enjoyable week in our cottage Ardevora Vean. This time of year is lovely as the hedgerows are blossoming and are really colourful with lots of wild flowers, however the downside of this is the lanes and track are far narrower and therefore can be a challenge for those not used to them!

A lovely secluded cottage within a short walk of the creek. Well appointed and within a short drive of the local pub which is friendly and reasonable value.

From the Owner:
Thanks for leaving this review, we are pleased with the overall scores you gave us, however we were slightly disappointed with a 4/5 for cleanliness - it would be good to know how you think we could improve on this.

Lovely Cottage

We were every happy with our stay at Ardevora Vean, the cottage is lovely. It was very clean and tidy and very spacious for a 1 bed cottage. It has good wet room with a great shower. We had a warm welcome which including scones, jam and cream which was a very nice touch :-) Although tucked away in the countryside the location is quite central to most of the key spots in Cornwall. Newquay and St Ives are only 40 minutes drive away. We received a welcome back from Cornwall Cottages before we arrived which was very helpful, it gave us a good overview of the area including places to visit and info on the beaches. We would recommend this cottage to friends and family we had a lovely stay here. Thank you

From the Owner:
It is always great to hear that our guests are happy with everything here at Ardevora and thank you for leaving this lovely, informative review.

The owners were friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was very clean and up to modern standards. All was well equipped and the property was very tranquil. We were not able to take out the Kayaks but enjoyed taking their dog for a walk along the river bank.

We had a wonderfull time at Ardevora Vean with a nice welcome and easy organization. The house is really beautiful and suitable for two persons. Fantastic would be a sofa instead of two single-arm chairs. We recommend the place to everybody who is looking for a quiet and relaxing place as a base for a trip to Cornwall. Patrick

Excellent accomodation, but the mile long rough cart track spoiled it.

As I said above. Everything was excellent once you got to the cottage, but then you felt marooned with the track. It is narrow, extremely rough in places, and goes on for ever. Even in a 4x4 we were shaken around. We would have liked to go to the local pub in the evening but could not face the journey. I would really like to give it 5 stars, but cannot honestly say I would recommend it.

From the Owner:
We are pleased you liked our cottage and thanks for the great scores you gave us in this respect. However it is a shame you found the track such a problem. We do advertise that we are at the end of a 3/4 mile farm track, although we do appreciate this year's extreme weather has increased the hedgerow growth which has narrowed the lane more than usual. We have taken on board your comments and will continue with our ongoing programme to maintain and improve the condition of the track.

Very pleasant stay at Ardevora Vean

Received a very warm welcome from the owners. The cottage is very well maintained and well equipped for eating in, with a fully fitted modern kitchen area. It is situated at the end of a remote long lane but in our view it is worth it as the cottage is set in such a tranquil setting. The owners are close at hand if you need any advice/assistance with anything. We would definitely return in the future.

Superb location for walkers

The cottage was excellent apart from an intermittent fault with the supply of hot water. The location was superb, but I feel it should be made clearer that access involves a 3/4 mile drive down a very rough track. The spaniel Tizzy was delightful and the owners could not have been more helpful and friendly.

Beautiful quiet location

Spent a most enjoyable week at Aredevora Vean, a barn conversion near the village of Philleigh in Cornwall. The owners were very friendly, helpful and concerned that I enjoyed my stay. The property was very well equipped, particularly the kitchen, and exceptionally well presented and clean. There was a cream tea in the fridge as a welcome gift. The property is beautifully situated in a very quiet location at the end of a long stoney farm track. It feels private but not isolated. The garden area adjoins a field with trees in the background and is not overlooked. There is plenty of space to park close by. A short walk alongside the river leads to the shore of a beautiful creek. The only downside could be the condition of the track, which is uneven and could cause a problem for low vehicles but was quite accessible for my small car.

From the Owner:
Thank you so much Eileen for this great review. It is always nice to receive feedback from guests and we are pleased you enjoyed staying here at Ardevora.
