About Alan Roberson

We have both been teaching in a local primary school and are now retired.

Our children are all grown up and spread around the country so the plan is to tour the UK and Europe with our caravan.

Alan Roberson purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Alan Roberson chose Saint Ervan

A delightful rural location yet close enough to beaches and the Camel estuary for all the watersports we both enjoy.

Large corttage near attractions

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were lovely and the cottage was much larger in real life than what the photos depicted. The owners have created a lovely pond area to explore, and there is plenty of space for outdoor dining and entertainment for children and dogs, if desired. This home is perfect for dog owners/lovers, but maybe not so much if a guest has any fears or allergies to pets.

The cottage contained everything needed, for which we appreciated, and the owners could not have been more gracious. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms updated. The modern master ensuite is barrier free, or called a wet bath. This means the entire floor gets wet when showering. We found it efficient and rather charming, but slippery. Having heated floors is a nice touch, though, and helps the floors to dry quickly. The wood burning stove in the living area wasn’t needed during our stay, but I can imagine it would have been lovely on a cool night. The living area and eat in kitchen are both large and accommodating, much larger than we expected. You definitely will appreciate the size and the charm of the cottage.

If I could offer one suggestion, it would be to dust and vacuum a bit more thoroughly. I realize we arrived just after a wedding party, so areas may have been missed before our arrival. Otherwise, we found the cottage absolutely charming! Thank you so much! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful stay at this cosy cottage !

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time at this cottage and everything was simply perfect. There's lots of space and rooms and all are well equiped so nothing is missing. Nearby is a lot to explore, especially the endless beaches and the Coast Path trail as well as nice towns with all kind of shops. We also had lots of fun with the two dogs on the premise. A clear recommendation at the heart of Cornwall!

Beautiful character barn conversion. Comfortable and homely. Excellent location. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property from first arrival. Very beautiful home. Owners and family close to hand with ANY quiery. Good for those with children and well behaved dogs. There are freindly dogs nearby who got on well with our retriever cross. Location is within easy access to beaches and local sightseeing. Eden Project and Falmouth about an hours drive away to give an idea of distance. However Padstow and the North coast are within 10 minutes and we mostly stayed locally as the weather was good so made the most of coastal and Camel Eastuary walking.

Within 10 minutes driving are the five fabulous beaches surrounding Trevose head. All are stunning sandy beaches offering lifeguarded swimming areas as well as excellent surfing. For calmer conditions choose one of the sheltered beaches on the Camel estuary leading towards Padstow.

This area is a delight for water sports enthusiasts. Sailing and waterskiing are very popular on the Camel estuary. Padstow sailing club is nearby where temporary membership is available.


Newquay airport is 20 minutes driving time from the property. The ferry port of Plymouth is within 40 miles.

Due to the rural nature of the property a car is highly recommended although bus services do run from the bus stop a five minute walk away.


Padstow with harbour, great restaurants, shops and camel trail cycle route is less than 4 miles away.

Within 5 miles are the superb Atlantic beaches of Treyarnon, Constantine, Boobys, Harlyn and Trevone.

Retallack resort and spa offers wake boarding, a spa, indoor pool and flowrider and is 5.5 miles away.
