Rowse Holiday Cottages
Barry & Kirsty
About Barry & Kirsty
After meeting on the "Clipper Round The World Yacht Race", and previously spending many years living in the busy streets of London and York, we decided to move to the relaxing West Country to enjoy a better lifestyle. After much research, we bought Rowse - a 400 year old farmhouse & estate. The previous owners had worked hard to restore it and it is now a beautiful home for us & our guests to enjoy.
Barry & Kirsty purchased this Cottage in 2019
Why Barry & Kirsty chose Pillaton
We bought Rowse because of its secluded, peaceful location & its beautiful 40 acres of woods, pasture, streams & gardens. It is important to us that our guests enjoy their holiday, and as self catering cottage users ourselves, we will make sure our 3 cottages are comfortable, clean, well equipped and most importantly fun to stay in! We are confident that you will enjoy your stay and all that Rowse and the West Country has to offer !

Wonderful winter week
We were made very welcome by Kristy and Barry arriving to freshly made scones and tea. Small issues with electrical appliances were dealt with quickly and professionally ensuring our holiday went smoothly. We accessed lots of local walks and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Dartmoor and the Cornish coast. The Eden Project was only a 40 min drive away. The cottage was well equipped and we would recommend. Hope to come again.
Ideal Cottage to chill out
Nice small and silent cottage. The equipment (like refrigerator, washingmachine and so on) seems to be almost new. The friendly landlords live nearby but not to close. If you have any questions, they are pleased to suggest trips, some written suggestions also available. A nice old Pub is just 10 minutes walk away. We had beautiful days at the Kellwyk Cottage.
Thank you for your kind review - its important to us that our guests have a good holiday and so we are very pleased you enjoyed your time with us here in our beautiful, quiet part of Cornwall. We hope to see you again one day!
With Kind regards, Andrew
Beautiful Cottage (Kellywick)
The cottage was better than we had imagined. The location was perfect as it was easy to visit both Cornwall and Devon and the many attractions and excellent restaurants were close by. The cottage itself was so private and you felt relaxed. The facilities were excellent and everything was spotlessly clean. The cottage is well looked after with modern facilities. The manager was very friendly and welcoming and was available readily for any information or help without being invasive. I would definitely recommend this property to both family and friends and we hope to visit again soon.
Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday here at Rowse. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful, peaceful part of Cornwall and yet it is the perfect base from which to explore both Devon & Cornwall. As for our 3 cottages we do our best to make them a proper home from home, so again we are delighted you thought the same! We hope to see you again one day!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It live up expectations and more. The owner Andrew was most welcoming and helpful. This is a quiet and peaceful place and ideal to ' chill out'. I would recommend this property to all.
Hope to stay there again sometime.
Thank you for your review & we are delighted you enjoyed your stay here at Rowse! It is very importatnt to us that our guests enjoy their holidays here, so we always welcome feedback - so again thank you. We hope to see you again one day in our beautiful, peaceful part of Cornwall! Andrew
Een huisje met alles war je nodig hebt. Een prima plek om cornwall te verkennen.
Thank you for your kind review. We are very happy you enjoyed your holiday here!
Il a fait fraiment froid dans le cottage au jour de notre arrivée. Et nous avons d' abord nettoyé to
Le cottage n'etait pas propre. C' etait plain d' arraignée. Il y avait beaocoup de poussière. Les chaises au salon ou nous avons manger tous les jours, etait trop haut. Nous avons cuisiner tout les jours et il avait mème pas du sel ou poivre huile et vinaigre. Pour le lavevaissel il y avait pas asser de tabs. Mème pas de poudre a laver, pas de papier de toilette. On savait pas, si on recoit du linge propre pour notre 2ème semaine de séjour.
We are shocked at your review. We have been managing our cottages for 12 years & always have 5 star reviews. If you had questions about the cottage why did you not discuss when you were here?
To answer your points clearly:
* Our cottages are professionally cleaned and checked on every changeover. They are never dirty or dusty.
* your comment about 'pestilence' is damaging and untrue. If you refer to an occasional spider or fly, well this is the country!
* The dining chairs are high but are designed as eating chairs in the kitchen - nobody else has ever mentioned they are too high.
* We provide as standard salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, tea, a homemade cream tea & milk.
* We provide 7 dishwasher tablets & special eco dishwashing soap.
* We provide 2 toilet rolls per bathroom.
* We give clean towels & bedding every week.
* In July we do not need heating. But in your cottage there was electric heating you could have turned on in each room if you wished. There was no need to be cold!
The above is our standard practice, and we are independently assessed by our agency as 4 star accommodation. so we are very puzzled as to your comments & poor rating. We think this is very unfair and damaging to our business.
If you had such issues when you were here why did you not say something? And why post your review 3 months later?
Reviews are really important and we ask all our guests for such. But yours is very unfair and also untrue, and we cannot understand why you should do this.
January 2019. PLEASE NOTE GOOGLE EARTH PHOTO IS 2005 & 14 YEARS OUT OF DATE! ALL OUR COTTAGES NOW HAVE PRIVATE GARDENS.
Rowse is not a working farm, but is a 40 acre private estate set near the beautiful, protected Tamar Valley in South East Cornwall. Although easy to access, this region is often referred to as the 'forgotten' part of Cornwall. It offers peace & tranquility but is in easy reach of the many fabulous beaches, great coastal walks, pretty little villages, the dramatic moors such as Dartmoor & Bodmin Moor & many of Cornwall's and Devon's well known attractions.
So, if you would like a really quiet place to stay, relax in 5 star comfort and want to enjoy one of England's most beautiful counties, then a holiday cottage at Rowse would be ideal for you!
