Apple Tree and Tawny Cottages are located in a wooded rural area, just off the A374, with private gardens, grounds and ample parking. The cottages are part of a converted 19th Century stone barn, and are newly refurbished to a high standard and come fully equipped with modern electric heating, large screen LED TV with DVD and Wifi.
From the gardens, the cottages are entered via an entrance hallway, leading into the cosy open plan living, kitchen and dining area, with beamed ceilings, stone wall, quarry tile floor and woodland views. The kitchens are newly fitted and fully equipped with solid beech worktops, separate oven and hob, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and plenty of cupboard space for food storage. Further storage space for beach bags, suitcases etc, can be found underneath the carpeted stairs, which lead via a landing to the first floor. The two comfortable bedrooms, one double and one twin, both have plenty of storage space and views over the owners orchard and surrounding woodland. Also on the first floor are the bathrooms with bath(Tawny), shower, toilet and wash basin.
We are Michael Evans, my wife Tine and my daughter Amy, also my parents Frank and Doreen. We have been holidaying in Cornwall and Devon for many years and decided that when my parents finally retired we would all sell up and move to the west country to enjoy the fresh air, wonderful countryside and fantastic beaches.
Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans purchased this cottage in 2014
Glebe barn, with the twin cottages of Tawny and Apple Tree gave us the living space we needed, with the added bonus of the chance of running a holiday let. I have been coming to Whitsand Bay since i was a young boy, and we have rented many holiday lets over the years and always envied the lifestyle and wanted to give it a try for ourselves. We loved the location of the property, it is very private as we are surrounded by woodland, but not too remote making visiting the many sights and places of interest in the area very easy indeed.
We feel the property offers a unique blend of the tranquility of being surrounded by woodland, and nature at the centre of the Rame Peninsula, whilst also being close to good transport routes, a major city and many other towns and villages of interest of two beautiful counties.
As we also live at the property, we do expect good standards of behaviour and for guests to treat the property and grounds with respect.
We`ve just stayed here for a weekend and its perfect, everything is just so clean and tidy and tastefully decorated.The owners are very welcoming on arrival they had left us homemade scones with cream and jam which were delicious.. Its situated in lovely surroundings with a pub just down the road which we walked too ( a torch is needed) There are plenty of lovely places not too far from there so a great location to explore..I would recommend this to anyone for a perfect holiday home, in the summer it would be lovely as there is seating outside..
Wir waren im September 2015 im Apple Tree Cottage und hätten das wunderbare kleine Haus am liebsten mitnachhause genommen.
Es ist definitiv alles was beschrieben ist vorhanden und was ganz wichtig ist, in einem topp Zustand. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll ausgesucht und so gut wie neu. Außerdem war im ganzen Häuschen kein Staubkörnchen zu finden. Die Außenanlage entspricht genau dem angegebenen Foto und war außnehmend gepflegt ( ich sage nur Golfrasen ).
Wir wurden von Michael & Tine sehr herzlich empfangen und fanden zur Begrüßung einen sehr leckeren Cream Tee vor. ( Schon vorab die Kommunikation per mail funktionierte perfekt).
Bei Fragen zur Umgebung oder Restaurants waren die beiden jederzeit für uns da und haben uns sehr gute Tipps gegeben. ( z.B. das Restaurant Hayloft oder der Pub im nächsten Dorf).
Wir können das Apple Tree Cottage nur empfeheln und werden aufjeden Fall nocheinmal hinfahren.
