Superb location for exploring Cornwall, very clean comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting. Ideal if you are after a peaceful break. Small shop only a few minutes away for essentials, bigger supermarkets and shops only a 15 min drive away. Lots of lovely beaches and villages within a short drive. The pub in the village was superb and highly recommended! Would definitely visit again

The Roseland Valley Retreat is a wonderful, beautiful and peaceful place to stay. It really does feel like you are 'getting away from it all', making it a perfect retreat. We went to sleep with bird song and woke to bird song, and enjoyed watching swallows nesting in the eaves. The hot outdoor shower was a joy, it was like bathing in the forset! Nigel and his family made us feel very welcome and there was a lovely bottle of fizz waiting for us on arrival. We really didn't want to leave our cosy cabin in the woods!

I booked this stay as a Christmas present for my partner and it really was the enchanting, secluded get away that I'd hoped for. We enjoyed every moment of our 3 night stay and have listed just some of the things that we loved, below:

  • The cabin felt totally private and hidden away beautifully in the woods.
  • Dinner with the lake view was so peaceful.
  • The cabin is wonderfully spacious and open plan.
  • The log fire (also, the owners went out of their way to give us extra wood at no cost, as it was particularly chilly during our stay).
  • The owners themselves who both popped in to say hello and make us feel welcome.
  • 30 acres of surrounding woodlands to explore.
  • So many lovely little touches, from the authentic African furniture to the hammock in the woods, bottle of wine, dvds, boardgames, blankets, hot water bottles.

The perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. If you want to leave stress and noise, this is the place to stay. Nigel was the perfect host, with very useful local recommendations and made us feel very welcome. The cottage has an amazing view of the surrounding landscape, and beautifully remote. A short drive or walk to a small down but every accessible to anywhere in Cornwall- we will be back!

February 2017
