About Chris & Jags

We are Chris and Jags. We have been running the holiday cottage at the Old Rectory since 2012 and really enjoy meeting so many different people from different walks of life from all over the world. We are very easy going and happy to help out with local places to visit etc. We love living where we do in Cornwall and feel almost privileged to be the custodians of the lovely old building that the Old Rectory is. the grounds are a delight in the summer months and we hope you get to enjoy them as much as we do.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Coach House at the Old Rectory.

Chris & Jags purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Chris & Jags chose Saint Keyne

We spent 3 years trying to find the perfect location to both live and run a holiday cottage business until we found the Old Rectory. It is perfectly located for a quite retreat as it's rural yet close by to the sea and the main A38 which can then get you onto many various places to visit. We have taken many aspects from our travels to create the Coach House we we gutted and refurbished to a high level of comfort in 2012. Everything in the coach house and it's location is what we thought we would like from a holiday and judging by all the reviews on here and other sites everyone else seems to agree and like the cottage too.

What makes this cottage unique

We think you'll love the peace and quiet of the countryside at the Old Rectory and enjoy the view over the valley sat outside enjoying either a glass of wine or perhaps a local Tribute beer or local cider.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay here for one week, and we certainly wish it could have been for longer. Everything we needed was found in the cottage including wi-fi.

Stunning views of the countryside every morning is the way to enjoy your morning coffee !! the lovely sunny weather we had all week meant we managed to visit every day somewhere different, all the places of which had details or leaflets within the cottage to help us decide which to choose each day.

A thoughtful welcome pack on arrival meant we did not have to go shopping after our 7hr drive up from Kent and was most appreciated.

The hosts, Jags and Chris, made us feel so welcome and we are already planning our next visit.

We really enjoyed the 2 weeks. The landlords were really nice people and fulfilled every wish. The house and its furnishings, its location are really nice. We wanted a holiday with peace and a bit of culture. Our expectations have come true.

Fab Location for a luxury break in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 4 days as a last minute short break in Cornwall and wow, how lucky we were the Old Rectory Cottage was free due to a cancellation.

The actual cottage is lovingly maintained and pretty much all of it seems like it is almost new still. It was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated.

The location is lovely, tranquil and so peaceful and is brilliantly situated to be able to explore the Cornish coastline and countryside.

There is so much to do within an hour's radius that you will never be short of ideas.

Jags and Chris are very welcoming and mega friendly and always helpful and happy to offer advice, which we used on numerous occasions!

We totally recommend it to anybody and looking forward very much to a return visit sometime next year.

The property was perfect for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, well equipped with all our daily needs with some much appreciated extras. Slightly chilly at times until we realised the heating wasn't working but it was fixed before we were back from our day out. The owners were lovely, kind and extremely accommodating. Thanks so much Chris and Jags'.

5 stars and more

  • 5 of 5

If you want a luxury cottage, in a beautiful setting with warm and welcoming hosts then look no further than The Coach House. I would have no hesitation in agreeing with all the 5 star comments of recent reviews. This really is a little gem of a cottage and it was a pleasure to sit out in the evening with a drink and a good book after a day exploring the likes of Cotehele, Lanhydrock and the South West coastal path.

Chris and Jags, our hosts, were so helpful and friendly and we valued their knowledge of the local area in planning our days. The very generous and thoughtful welcome goodies were much appreciated and nothing was too much trouble. When we come back to Cornwall we know exactly where we will be staying.

Thanks so much Chris and Jags for a lovely week.

An excellent choice ............

  • 5 of 5

Strongly recommend a stay at the The Coach House - the property is of excellent standard and very comfortable and the 'welcome pack' after a long journey is so well received - no need to rush out to the shops for supplies. Chris and Jags, the owners. are so warm and welcoming and are on hand if you have any problems. The view across the valley from the property is amazing and you will not hear a sound expect for maybe the sheep in a distant field. We were able to explore the whole of North Cornwall and the South from Megavissey to the Devon border with easy from The Coach House. For a holiday to remember you will not be disappointed with The Coach House

Detached, and situated far enough away from any other buildings, the Coach House offers peace and tranquillity. A private patio can be used to enjoy the lovely views across the valley and makes it the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine.

Guests have access to the whole cottage, it's private patio area overlooking the valley. They can also roam around the orchard and some of the gardens of the Old Rectory along with the small paddock which leads out onto fields surrounding the property.

of things to see and do as well as places to eat.

The Old Rectory is situated just outside the small village of St Keyne in Cornwall and along the way to the next small village of Duloe. It is very quiet, peaceful and tranquil with lovely views yet it is very close to the coast and close to the main links back to central and southern England.

Getting around:

The cottage has it's own private and dedicated parking spaces. We are also on a direct bus route in between Looe and Liskeard. The train is just under 2 miles away and we provide a free courtesy pick up from Liskeard station. Nearest airports are Newquay, Exeter & Bristol airports.
