Lovely modern and comfortable cottage in an ideal, yet peaceful

Having just returned from a lovely sunny week in Cornwall with my partner, we felt we should write this review to say how lovely Wheal Rose Cottage was. Met on arrival by Mr Farmer, who kindly pointed out local amenities and had left the basics for a welcoming drink.
A modern, spacious, open plan layout with everything you could need including lovely underfloor heating, which was nice to come back to after chilly, cliff walks.
Ideally located for accessing all Cornwall has to offer but enough away from the busy towns to be a peaceful retreat with stunning views over the countryside.
Would return again at a later date, preferably in the summer months to make the most of Cornwall's beautiful beaches.
Thanks for a lovely week.

Heaven on Earth

The service we recieved was absolutley brilliant, the owners were very nice and polite, they made us feel very welcome.
The cottage was amazing, so clean,luxurious and cosy,had everything you could possibly need, my kids loved the big garden and the surrounding fields.

The location was fine, not too far from from the local shops and the town centre/beach, we liked the way the cottage was hidden from everyone.

Overall, the holiday was FANTASTIC!! There was nothing we didn't like, we had the best time ever and we will definatley be back very soon.

Wheal Rose

Excelent value for monies - this has to be one of he best cottages we have stayed at.
Location is excellent, 5 mins from main road but far enough down country lane to never get any noise or cars driving past.
Do not think the owner could have done more for us.
Thanks for excellent stay - have been again this year as it was soooooo good!

Stunning location, stunning cottage.

Great location for a peaceful break or holiday, but with all the best resorts and locations within easy reach. The accommodation is spacious, has everything you need, and is fitted out to a very high standard.
Other reviews have described this cottage as a "home from home" and they are 100% correct, the hosts are welcoming, the location is great, everything is high quality, and it is one of the very best cottages we have stayed in.

Just as good as last time

We were greeted by anne and Howard and everything was immaculate as ever. I had ordered a hamper from Trevilley Farm shop and this had been packed away for me. Beautiful surroundings very peaceful.

Comfortable home from home.

Everything was as advertised, and nothing was too much trouble for the owners, who were very friendly, but not in your face. I asked for a chair in the shower, and it was put in there straight away. As I rely on oxygen there was no problem as the owners took delivery the day before my arrival on my behalf. Everything you've got at home was there, so just unpack, and get on with your stay. I enjoyed it so much in april, I am going again in September.

Perfect getaway.

We spent 4 nights at Wheal Rose in February during a week where we had some severe storms across the country. Once inside the cottage however we were warm and cosy, and felt cosseted from the outside world. The facilities were ideal for a couple, though the option of a foldaway bed in the living/dining/kitchen offers flexibility for a third adult/child. The equipment provided for self-catering is excellent, and far exceeds the amount normally allocated for a property designed for 3 people, resulting in guests being able to put the dishwasher on when it was full rather than after each meal. The property was extremely clean and sufficient space given to drying of clothing which can get wet in the showers that blow through. We hope to stay here again later in the year.

2nd visit to this great cottage

We have just returned for out second visit to Wheal Rose, and again we have only the highest praise for this property.

A few things have changes since our last visit including some new furnishings, and new single bed making it capable of sleeping an additional person. The property is a credit to it's owners who have fitted it out to a high standard, and have added those "little touches" that make it feel warm and welcoming.

Access is via typical Cornish lanes, but the Post Code in your SatNav should get you there without any problems. Being so close to Newquay is a major bonus, especially as we visited during the "BoardMasters" surfing and Music event.

Wheal Rose is a "home from home" with everything you could need for a great stay in Cornwall. Highly Recommended!


Amazing cottage in a great location.

Just returned from a week's stay in Wheal Rose. It is an amazing cottage with plenty of character and very comfortable. The location is great, being within easy reach of all the major attractions and only about 15 minutes drive to the beaches of Newquay, Crantock and further afield. The little touches made this a great stay, such as the milk, tea and coffee there when we arrived, to the binoculars for birdwatching, the DVDs, books and board games already there for the rainy days when we didn't want to leave the cottage. The whole place, the comfort, decor, and furnishings made it a brilliant stay. Of note is that Wheal Rose would be ideal for those with disabilities, as the bathroom has a walk in shower with seat, and the doors are all extra wide. Parking is also available right at the door. Thanks again to the owners who allowed us a much needed break for a reasonable price.

Amazing cottage and holiday

Just returned from a week at Wheal cottage. It is an amazing cottage, very clean and well presented and excellent for disabled guests with walk in shower room with shower seat and wide doors for wheelchair access. Attention to detail is excellent down to the essentials supplied on arrival, like tea, coffe, sugar and milk. All dish washer tablets and liquid are also provided. The only downfall is that the wifi access isnt very good and they do offer full sky package with movies, but the satalite signal goes down a lot too. But due to the excellent weather we had we were out every day. It is centrally located, with the beaches and pubs, bars and restaurants of Newquay only about 10-15min car ride away. List of local taxis in the cottage information. We also had a very warm welcome from both Mr & Mrs Farmer, the owners of the cottage. We cant wait to go back and take our daughter next time.


The property was beautiful - very good location. The cottage is excellent - clean, modern and it had everything we needed. We will be recommending it to our friends. Thank you!

The barn conversion has been beautifully done.Very peaceful location but easy to get back onto main roads for touring around.No parking problems at property.Cottage has high standard fixtures and fittings, very spacious for two people.

All being well we hope to book this property again in the future.
