Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Definitely Five Star.
We have been to East Rose many times and we love the beauty and tranquility. Matthew and Becky are always great hosts and constantly ensure that the grounds and cottages are a delight. We take our dog and we all love walking round the lakes and going for walks on the moor. The surrounding villages and local beaches are within easy access. Barn Cottage is comfortable and well equipped. The living area is upstairs and has stunning views across the moors. We highly recommend East Rose and Matthew and Becky’s hospitality.

Excellent place to stay
This is our third year staying in the Barn and we have reserved for next year. Perfect location as so quiet with lovely views over the well kept fishing lakes. Ideal position to see the rest of Cornwall on day trips. Matthew and Becky make you feel so welcome. Highly recommended.

Beautiful place to stay
We've been to East Rose many times over the last 30 years and we love coming back time and time again. Becky and Matthew do a lot to make sure the grounds and cottages are a really special place to stay. We bring our dogs and children and they love playing in the grounds, walking round the lakes and going to walks on the moor. One of the things we love is that we can walk straight out of the cottage and onto the moor. The cottage is comfy and feels cosy. The bedrooms are on the ground floor, meaning the living area has stunning views. I highly recommend it. We've already booked our holiday for next year!

Fantastic pet friendly ‘Barn Cottage’
We have stayed at East Rose many times and the accommodation and surroundings never fail to be fantastic. Matthew and Becky are great hosts and their properties and grounds are beautifully looked after by them. Their hospitality at East Rose is second to none. We love to spend time enjoying the wildlife in the peace and tranquility of East Rose and the coast is only a short drive away. There are plenty of places to drive to and eat out when we don’t want to cook and the nearest pub (with great food) is a lovely walk away when we don’t want to drive. We stayed in Barn Cottage again as it offers amazing views from the ‘upside down’ sitting area. As well as the views, it is spacious, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with excellent facilities. It offers great value for money and is dog friendly. Matthew, Becky, Edward, William and Eloise are superb hosts and are so very kind and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. Becky’s home cooked food is delicious and the wonderful cream tea on arrival is a perfect touch. Thank you all again for a wonderful stay. We hope we’ll see you again soon.

Always Fantastic
East Rose never fails to be amazing. This was one of our many stays. We never tire of the wonderful views and superb surroundings, kept so beautifully by Matthew and Becky. Their care for the environment at East Rose is second to none. There is also always something new to see and do on our walks and travels in the area. We love the peace and tranquility, the wildlife and the coast, which is only a short drive away. We stayed in Barn Cottage again as we love this spacious first class accommodation. It is spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with excellent facilities and fantastic views. It offers great value for money and is dog friendly. Matthew, Becky, Edward, William and Eloise are brilliant hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and they are so kind and welcoming. We love Becky’s home cooked food and the delicious cream tea on arrival. We are looking forward to our next visit already! Thank you all again for a wonderful stay.

Barn
Just returned from our first visit to East Rose and have already rebooked for next year. Barn was spotless and provided us with fantastic accommodation in a stunning location. Kids enjoyed catching lots of small roach in the lakes and also recommend pony trekking at the nearby stables. Both coasts of Cornwall easily reached by car from here and plenty of great beaches to visit. Becky Matthew and family provide a first class Holiday destination.

Amazing and Very Dog Friendly.
We have stayed at fantastic East Rose several times now and each time the views and superb surroundings seem to be even more stunning than the last. We love the peace and tranquility, the wildlife and the walks. We stayed in Barn, which is a very spacious first class accommodation; spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable with excellent facilities. Great value for money and dog friendly. Matthew, Becky, Edward and William are terrific hosts, so kind and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Becky’s lovely cream tea on arrival is a great start to the holiday. We also sampled the homemade Cornish Pasties this time....delicious! Thank you all again for a wonderful stay, we are very much looking forward to another one in the near future.

About the neighbourhood
East Rose is perfectly located to explore the wonders of Bodmin Moor - on foot or cycle, or to explore all that Cornwall has to offer. We are only a 10 minute drive to the main A30 that runs through Cornwall. One of the closest towns to East Rose is Wadebridge. You will find several restaurants and pubs, and quaint shops. Local attraction include The Camel Trail - an off road cycle route running from Wenford Bridge (10 minute drive from East Rose) to Padstow, following the Camel Estuary, Camel Valley Vineyard, The Eden Project, Lanhydrock House, as well as the towns and villages of Padstow, Port Isaac, Rock, Newquay and Polzeath. Within 1.5 hours of East Rose, you can drive to Lands End, the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall.
Getting around
East Rose is located in a rural setting on Bodmin Moor. A car is essential to get around to see the sights. St Breward is the closest village, a leisurely 35 minute walk. The closest train station is Bodmin Parkway (located out of Bodmin town itself), and cars can be hired from Bodmin town. You can arrange for a taxi to collect you from the station to take to you the town centre. If you are feeling energetic, you can bring your bike and cycle around the moors (on the roads). This will be a great way to see the sights and nature of the moors at close hand. The Camel Trail (cycle route from Wenford Bridge to Padstow) is also only a few miles from East Rose, and definitely worth a visit.
Access
Car required
How to get there
Although in a very rural moorland location, all of Cornwall is very accessible from East Rose as we are only a short drive from the main A30 road that runs through the county. A car would be recommended for a holiday at East Rose. East Rose is located on Bodmin Moor, above the ancient Delphy Bridge between the villages of Blisland and St Breward. If you have a Sat Nav, it should bring you to us once you are off the A30. The post code is PL30 4NL. Latitude: 50’33’18.73'N. Longitude: 4’39'42.20'W **Please note that there have been recent road upgrades on the A30 between Temple and Bodmin, which have included the dualling of the road, and also the addition of three new over head bridges. You may find this confuses your sat nav slightly.** From Exeter / M5 / A30 From the M5 at Exeter, take the A30 for approximately 58 miles, until you get to the bottom of a slight rise in the road, and there is an exit for St Breward. This area is called Temple. Take this exit, and cross over the A30 on the new bridge (Temple Tor Bridge). You will have bypassed the towns of Okehampton and Launceston when on the A30. Bodmin town is approximately 5 miles from here, East Rose is approximately 3 miles from here. **(If you miss this first bridge, you can take the second or third bridge shortly after and get to East Rose via the village of Blisland). Continue on this moorland road. After approximately 1.5 miles you will pass Bradford Lodge on your left hand side. Follow this road around the bend to the left. The road will be quite narrow here, with large trees around you. Pass Moss Cottage (also on your left). The road will open up again to open moorland. You will pass a property on your right (North Kerrow). Continue down the hill. You will then get to a junction with a granite sign post with a right turn to St Breward and Camelford - take this (East Rose is only about 1 mile away). You will pass Penquite Kennels and Cattery on your left hand side. Go over the bridge at Delphy, East Rose is located just past the bridge on the right. From Plymouth / A38 / A30 From Plymouth, head towards Bodmin, travelling on the A38 for approximately 32 miles. You will pass the town of Liskeard. Once at Bodmin, you will need to join the A30 and head towards Launceston for approximately 5 miles. Pass two petrol stations/garages on your left, and go under two bridges. Take the exit just before the third bridge (Temple Tor Bridge), sign posted for St Breward. East Rose is approximately 3 miles from here. Continue on this moorland road. After approximately 1.5 miles you will pass Bradford Lodge on your left hand side. Follow this road around the bend to the left. The road will be quite narrow here, with large trees around you. Pass Moss Cottage (also on your left). The road will open up again to open moorland. You will pass a property on your right (North Kerrow). Continue down the hill. You will then get to a junction with a granite sign post with a right turn to St Breward and Camelford - take this (East Rose is only about 1 mile away).
