We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the level of accommodation, the cleanliness, attention to detail, the area, we even had a cream tea waiting for us as well as ordering brilliant weather.
Overall this was one of the best relaxing holidays we have had in along time
We have stayed in Mowhay a couple of times. It is situated with lovely views over Bodmin Moor and Delph Bridge and various animals as neighbours. Mowhay is a very well equipped cottage and very clean. The area around the cottage is kept very neat and tidy with lovely walks around the lakes, fishing available for those who enjoy it. It is also easy to get to Camel Trail or beaches. Becky and Matthew are always there to help but also leave you to enjoy your holiday. A nice touch when you arrive scones and jam delicious and I also loved Lemon Drizzle cake which you can order along with other goodies.
Overlooking the famously picturesque Delphi Bridge, East Rose enjoys an unspoilt panorama over Bodmin Moor.
Mowhay Cottage itself provided the 4 of us with spacious, clean and tidy accommodation for the 6 nights of our stay, which comfortably exceeded all our expectations and requirements.
Becky's welcoming cream teas on arrival were much appreciated as were the home-made pasties and cake that followed. Both Matthew and Becky were also keen to ensure that we had all we wanted, even though they'd evidently anticipated everything.
The village of St Breward is conveniently nearby and well served by an excellent pub and well-stocked stores.
East Rose also proved to be an ideal base for our trips to Wadebridge, Rock and Polzeath on the North coast and to Fowey on the South. The house and gardens at Pencarrow, between Wadebridge and Bodmin, also proved to be a very worthwhile place to visit.
Very happy to recommend East Rose as an excellent place to stay; we'll be looking to return on our next visit to Cornwall.
Great place to explore Cornwall, be it the coasts, the Moor, small cities (ports), beaches, etc.
First time in Cornwall, we couldn't have found a better place to stay as a family of 4. Homemade-Scones from Becky awaited us on arrival (you can order homemade-pastries and pies every day if you want to), and this friendliness continued all through our holiday.
The cottages are wonderful, decorated with very much taste and love. You'll find everything you need. Lots of space, also outdoors to play with your kids.
Matthew and Becky are the most friendly and helpful hosts you could wish for, always with an idea where else to go / what to do if you ask them.
If you come for the first time, make sure to include the geo-data of their cottage in your mobile as the "streets have no name." :)
Certainly will come again!
We are regular visitors to East Rose and always look forward to returning. We have stayed in several of the Cottages over the years, this time we chose Mowhay which we found to be comfortable, spacious and very well equipped and as always spotlessly clean.
There is a small selection of books – should you forget to bring one. The cottages are in a perfect spot for enjoying peace, quiet and tranquillity. We particularly enjoy the cream tea that awaits us in the cottage on our arrival - after our long drive. There is a very pleasant well maintained and well stocked lake complex for those that like to do a bit of fishing.
Matthew and Becky are always most helpful and nothing is too much trouble, the whole holiday set up is a credit to them and their hard work.
We will be back next year.
Mowhay cottage is a well equipped holiday cottage. Cream tea on arrival. Spotlessly clean. The grounds and lakes are beautifully kept and provide some enjoyable fishing.
Plenty to see and do within the surrounding area.. You just need to be lucky with the weather...And we were!
We have stayed at East Rose for 16 consecutive years, Owners are vey friendly and helpful. The whole of the East Rose grounds including the lakes are kept to a high standard. We have also stayed in two of the other cottages and each one has been outstanding.
The welcoming scones, jam and tea on the table is a very welcoming site after a long journey it just gives you that nice start to your holiday.
A great place to walk from over the moors or to travel and see Cornwall.
