With exposed timbers, part-wooden floors and a bright, airy sitting room, this property is able to sleep six people and also comes with a patio for al fresco dining, or sun bathing with a good book. Just one mile from Roche is this charming cottage which has been superbly renovated from a nineteenth century china clay drying kiln. This grade two-listed property is one of five holiday homes in the building – all of which are peppered with subtle reminders of the construction’s ‘china clay’ heritage. With swings for visiting children, this idyllic setting is also set on the banks of a small stream, which runs by the bac...k door. With so much to do in the local area, everyone is bound to find something they enjoy. Whether you’re coming with family, or friends, Riverside makes a great base for people looking to explore Cornwall.

Region: Cornwall’s visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain’s premier holiday destinations.
Town: The little village of Roche is only six miles from Bodmin and easily accessible by the A30, making it a fantastic holiday location for anyone looking to explore the wider area of Cornwall. With its selection of shops and pubs, this quaint settlement is primarily involved in agriculture leaving a picturesque patchwork of lush, gently undulating fields. Just a thirty minute drive away is the ruggedly beautiful north Cornish coast, with rocky caves, high cliffs and excellent surfing beaches. Newquay, with its new Fistral Beach surf centre, is also nearby, along with the fishing village of Padstow. With its narrow, winding streets, charming harbour and renowned restaurants, this small town certainly merits a visit. The spectacular Eden project is also close by, with biomes full of tropical plants.

Really enjoyed the locale and home itself. Very appropriate to use as base for travelling and exploring.
Heating and TV were a challenge (not being a resident of England but help was available.
Only detrimental thing was amount of hot water, hubby had a cool shower the first day. Oh! and putting the wet mop in one of the closets began to smell musty
Lovely holiday experience in Cornwall.

All our family had a great time spent down South. Accommodation was ideal for all of us and also for different times of the day. We had everything available to us in the kitchen and living room was very cosy and spacious. It was a great location for visiting places of interest and also quite. I would come back again to the same cottage and recommend it to friends as well.
