Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would love to stay there again.

Nice big private garden. Although there is no window in the bedroom, it was nice to watch the birds through the skylight. Heating worked well, though not very efficient in the living room/kitchen because the sofa is large and blocks the radiator. Overall a nice property for two. Nice village with friendly pub and the shop in the village is very good, and only a few minutes walk.

The Cart House is a small cottage for two people in a very quiet spot. Cosy to return to in cooler weather when we stayed, I think it would be fabulous in summer when it would be possible to dine al fresco in the beautiful and secluded garden. It’s possible to walk to Carne Beach straight from the door, and there are other lovely walks nearby. There’s the fabulous Thirstea Co trailer serving hot drinks, cakes and ice cream in Carne Beach car park at weekends in season. Veryan is a lovely village and the local pub is a very short walk from the cottage. There is also a convenient little village shop. Da Bara in the Garden is an awesome bakery and coffee shop, and is only a five minute drive away at the Roseland Plant Centre. The comfortable bed and peace and quiet ensures an excellent night’s sleep. Very friendly and helpful owners.

A lovely little cottage, very clean and comfortable, with a lovely good sized garden. We loved being able to walk out through the French doors and sit outside when the weather was warm enough. The owners were nearby and very helpful if we needed help. Veryan is a lovely village in a good location for visiting other places in the area. Pendower and Carne beaches, Melinsy Mill, Portloe, Veryan Green are all within easy walking distance of the cottage. The pub was only a couple of minutes walk from the cottage and the village stores is a well stocked shop.

Amazing cottage for 2 people in a great location! The cottage and the garden space is very private and beautifully maintained. I was pleasantly surprised at how secluded it feels, with the cottage and garden facing away from the main house. The garden in particular is a fantastic place to relax after a day on the beach. The cottage is well equipped and very spacious for 2 people- it is very comfortable and tastefully decorated and furnished. Sam is a very welcoming host but non-intrusive and is always available to help with any queries, and the prosecco and chocolate on arrival was a particularly lovely touch! Although there is no official parking, we never had any issues getting parked nearby. Veryan is a lovely village with a great local pub, and we would definitely recommend going to the 'Burger Shed' which is open on Tuesday/ Wednesday evenings for a takeaway burger or stir fry for a casual dinner in one night! We would definitely stay again and recommend the Cart cottage to couples looking for a romantic break away in Cornwall!

Lovely cottage for 2 in an excellent location on Roseland Peninsula - seemed a relatively quiet area compared to other parts of Cornwall Clean and bright with pretty garden outlook Particularly good for walking straight from the door to Carne and Pendower beaches National Trust properties and boat trips a short drive away Melinsey Mill - good for tea and cake
