Beautiful quite location
The location was very good a good place to explore the surrounding areas from. The cottage itself was clean, spacious and well appointed. Everything you needed was provided if you wanted to prepare and cook meals yourself. It was a very quiet and beautiful location-the estuary was lovely too. It was a bit cold when were there, October, but in summer we’d have taken advantage of the canoe hire that was offered.
Terri our host was lovely, helpful and welcoming. We had a lovely time. Would definitely recommend and we’re planning a return visit in spring or early summer.
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 £12 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).
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.
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.
Lovely spot in a great location. Well equiped and very cosy. Well done Teri.
A real gem.
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.
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
We couldn’t have asked for more. Beautiful accommodation, under floor heating and high quality furnishings. The owner couldn’t have been more helpful. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely go back.
Thanks so much for this great review. It was lovely to meet you both and we hope to see you again in the future. All the best, Teri
