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.

Superb, as Always!
My wife and I have had several stays in one of East Rose's other cottages (Moor) and have always been very impressed. This time, we decided to book a week in the slightly larger Mowhay cottage. The cottage was very well presented and we were impressed with the very high quality of fixtures and fittings. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the lounge furniture was very comfortable, as was the bed. No complaints at all from us. Throughout the week, we saw Matthew and Becky (owners), several times and they were always available for a friendly chat or answer any queries. Becky's home cooked treats - pasties, sausage rolls, scones etc, are well worth sampling, so I recommend anyone staying there, to ask Becky to do some baking for you. The location is well out of the way on top of Bodmin Moor, clear of all the hustle and bustle of modern life. It is a great location to switch off for a few days. They have several fishing lakes on site, but even if you are not in to fishing, you can have a pleasant relaxing stroll through the various pathways around the lakes. The lake area is well fenced off, to prevent young children from wandering there by themselves. Just 5 minutes drive away is a great pub in St Breward, which serves excellent meals. The town of Bodmin is only a 20 minute drive away for restaurants, takeaways etc.

An oasis of calm
We have just returned from our fourth stay and have rebooked for both this autumn and next summer. A hidden gem - a view shared by every newcomer we encounter. No traffic noise, just birdsong and a suitably poor mobile signal within the cottage to keep intrusion at bay. A perfect location for avoiding the busy coast, with easy access to great pub food at the Old Inn, The Eden Project and National Trust Lanhydrock.

Thank you very much for your lovely review and comments. East Rose is definitely a 'get away from it all' type of holiday - if you want that. But also, perfectly located to enjoy some of the many great local attractions on offer in Cornwall. We look forward to welcoming you again later in the year, and next year! Many thanks again.

Lovely retreat in a beautiful quiet idyllic surroundings
The cottage is situated in the Bodmin moors near a stream with plenty of lovely picnic spots and has own lakes for fishing ; we didn't fish but lovely to walk around 1st thing in the morning or last thing in evening. Ideal for touring around - Bodmin jail, Eden Project, Port Isaac (Doc Martin and Fisherman's friend filmed there) St Ives , Padstow (Stein's place) . The owners are friendly and helpful.

Peaceful, comfortable and in a delightful spot.
Booked Mowhay Cottage for the disabled access and fantastic views from the windows after a stay last year in another. Everything you need for a quiet self-isolated getaway, set on the beautiful moor. Plenty of picnic tables & BBQ area, to dine outdoors and relax when admiring the views and watching the birds around the lakes, (17 species seen in the week). Easy cycling from the cottage and a well stocked local store and pub dining just a short drive/walk away. Will make at least one regular booking each year as in this location it can only remain unspoilt.

Perfect location to relax, unwind and get out into nature
East Rose is a gem. We have stayed several times before, in all seasons, and will keep coming back. The owners are friendly and take trouble to ensure that your stay is hassle free. The welcome plate of homemade scones with jam and clotted cream are delicious! Mowhay cottage is a spacious cottage for 4 people and has been designed with guests with mobility issues in mind. Located a stone's throw from the Disabled Car Park with well-maintained level paths from the cottage to the picnic benches on the lawns which overlook the lakes and moors. We hope to be back soon.

Can’t wait to return!
We have had a fantastic weeks holiday at East Rose. My eldest daughter didn’t want to come home! The cottage is in a beautiful setting with views out to the moor. My two girls loved waking up and spotting sheep and ponies out of the window everyday. Great walks on your doorstop and our dog loved his walk to Delphi bridge everyday for his morning dip! The cottage is very clean, comfortable and is perfect for families equipped with everything you need. The old Inn does fab food and is well worth a visit (be sure to book as it’s very popular) and also St.Breward stores is great for picking up a few essentials. The coast is very accessible from here and exploring the rest of Cornwall. Matthew and Becky are great hosts & very helpful if you need anything. We’ve already booked for next year and can’t wait!

Map
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.
