Inspired by the era of prohibition in America, Rebellion provides a daring marriage of smokehouse flavours with a potent mixture of Cornish Moonshine. “At Rebellion, we've created a menu that's a bit different from the norm,” says owner Simon Duggan.

ager to find out more about what makes this fabulous part of the county so popular with those buying in Cornwall, we catch up with Martyn Rohrs and Matthew Rowe, founders of prestigious and award-winning luxury property agency, Rohrs & Rowe, who give us the Roseland low down. “There are very few places that you can compare to the Roseland peninsula. It’s not only one of the Duchy’s most unspoilt areas (it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) but it has a real mix of scenery. From show-stopping beaches and breathtaking cliff top walks, to meandering rivers, quiet creeks and some of the lushest countryside to be found anywhere; there is something to appeal to everyone here,” Matthew tells us. Rohrs & Rowe have seen some impressive successes on the Roseland, at both ends of the property spectrum; they’ve had particular success selling properties that have previously been on the market for long periods of time with other agencies. Matthew explains: “With our understanding of the area and what it

has to offer, combined with our bespoke and unique marketing techniques, we can help to add saleability to a property and sometimes add value. We've recently sold Polsue Farm, a stunning property overlooking Caerhays, that had been for sale with other agents for many years. We quickly found the perfect buyers as our different approach was able to show off what was so special about the property and its amazing location. This is a great example of what the R&R approach can achieve!” So what is it about the Roseland that makes it so appealing? “For most of the people we have looking to buy in this area,” says Martyn, “it’s the perfect mix of peace and easy access to all the amenities you need.” Whilst it manages to retain an air reminiscent of days gone by, the Roseland is just a short drive from Truro, where you’ll find all the benefits of an excellent high street, including designer brands and supermarkets such as Waitrose. You can also hop on the daily ferry from St Mawes and stroll Falmouth’s cobbled streets, explore its independent boutique

shops and discover ample places to stop for refreshments. There is great access out of county too, with the fantastically easy sleeper train from Truro to London and easy access to the A30. It would seem that this part of Cornwall isn’t as remote as its demeanour may have you believe! From a lifestyle point of view, the Roseland has endless scope for activities. Whether it’s simply lacing up your boots and exploring the South West Coast Path, getting out on the water on a boat trip, hiring a kayak, or spending the day on one of the many stunning and safe family-friendly beaches, there’s plenty on offer here to fill your days. Discerning foodies will find a fabulous array of farm shops selling a wealth of local produce, including fresh seafood landed locally in the peninsula’s still-working fishing villages, which are also worth a visit. You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to eating out, too. Head to the Michelin Starred Driftwood Hotel in Portscatho and you can enjoy wholesome menus that infuse seasonally inspired dishes with the finest ingredients. Or, if you’re out and about exploring the coast, pop into the Hidden Hut – tucked away along the coast path above Porthcurnick beach, you can pop in and enjoy lunch from the stove, oven or grill. Alternatively, why not try Portscatho’s latest pop-up, a joint venture between Knightor Vineyard and Craftworks Kitchen – it’s sure to be a huge hit with locals and visitors alike. If you’re an art enthusiast, you’ll no doubt already know that Cornwall is a hub of creative talent, drawing artists from around the world to capture its dramatic land and seascapes. The Roseland is a perfect example, with galleries dotted around the peninsula showcasing some of the area’s finest local talent.

So whether you’re contemplating a scenic retirement by the sea, or hoping to raise your family to the beat of the ocean, this could well be the place for you. Perhaps you already live here and are looking for an agency with the right tools for the job and an understanding of this magical area, that can be sure to market your treasured home to its full potential? Bringing extensive knowledge of the Roseland to every purchase and sale, Martyn and Matthew currently have some wonderful properties for sale in the area and they’re always looking to add to their unique portfolio. One of the duo’s recent clients – the owners of The White House in St Ewe said of their dealing with Rohrs & Rowe: “From our first meeting we knew that Rohrs & Rowe were different. Our property had been for sale for a considerable period of time when we contacted them. After making the decision to market our property with them instead of our previous agent, they swiftly put in place their high-quality marketing and they then very quickly and efficiently sold our property in a difficult market to some excellent buyers. Every aspect of their contact was responsive and helpful – I just wish we’d made the decision to approach them much earlier!”

We quickly found the perfect buyers as our different approach was able to show off what was so special about the property and its amazing location.

Top canine care tips If you’re planning a day out, Cornwall’s Dog Welfare Team stress the importance of checking whether dogs are welcome. If they’re not, make sure to arrange a pet sitter or kennels, or perhaps choose an alternative dog-friendly attraction. This goes for beaches too – while many are dog friendly throughout the year, there are also many that have bans in place over the summer. Dog waste can be disposed of in any street litter bin in Cornwall and does not have to be specifically placed in a dog poo bin. If there isn’t one close by then take the bag home – there’s nothing worse than littering with both plastic and poo! In summer, as well as ensuring they have

access to water throughout the day, it’s often best to walk your dog early in the morning or late in the evening when temperatures are cooler, reducing the risk of heatstroke. For more information call 03001 234212 or visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/ environment-and-planning

It was built between 1539 and 1545 to counter the threat of invasion from Catholic France and Spain, guarding the strategically crucial anchorage of the Carrick Roads. While it was designed to mount heavy artillery, great care was taken with its decoration and even today, you can see the carved Latin inscriptions that praise the king and his son, Edward. Visitors can explore the grounds, which extend down to the waters of the estuary, and drink in the stunning views across the water to Pendennis Castle.

DARE TO DREAM We catch up with Philip Martin and discover just some of the superb properties currently available on the Roseland peninsula.

I

t’s fair to say that the Roseland is home to a diverse array of property. From fishermen’s cottages in the harbour villages, to the farms on the edge of the peninsula’s rural villages, it’s no wonder the Roseland continues to prove so attractive to those looking for their next property. It’s the perfect location for those seeking a lifestyle change, a holiday home, or a place to raise a family. There are some amazing properties currently on the market, many of which are available through the experts at Philip Martin. Each of them shows off the unique beauty of the Roseland in its own way, and each offers something different to a variety of buyers. Our first visit is to the idyllic Apple Cottage in Crohans, Veryan. This beautifully presented one-bedroom character property commands a quiet countryside setting, with a delightful garden focusing on a newly-erected summerhouse. Perfect as either a holiday home or full-time residence, Apple Cottage is just the ticket for anyone looking for peace and tranquillity. Guide price £265,000 Perhaps you’re looking for views of the coast? If so, look no further than Fuschia Cottage in Portloe. Located in a central position within this popular harbour village, this semi-detached, three-bedroom property enjoys views of the harbour. Whilst in need of refurbishment, Fuschia Cottage should not be ignored as, given its location and the sheer potential on offer, it really is a rarity on today’s market. Guide price £375,000

Because of the peaceful tranquillity on offer throughout the Roseland, it’s often exactly what those hoping to get away from the rat race are looking for. If this sounds like you, then you’ll love Trebyan in Veryan Green. Just a mile from the sandy beaches of Pendower and Carne, and with a good range of facilities for daily needs nearby, this three-bedroom detached bungalow boasts a generous plot with beautifully presented gardens, making it a wonderful retirement opportunity. Guide price £475,000 Finally, for those in search of something truly special, it’s unlikely that you’ll find anywhere better than Treviles Manor, set within the parish of Ruanlanihorne. Built in the late 17th century and with 98 acres, this is arguably one of the most important and strategically positioned manor houses on the entire peninsula. Occupying an ancient site with a rich history, this farming estate includes a two-bedroom cottage, a one-bedroom apartment, swimming pool, walled gardens, plus traditional and commercial farm buildings. A property of unique charm, you’ll be hard pressed to find this property’s equal. Guide price £3,250,000 for the whole; lots from £2,650,000

PARADISE

Be inspired by a visit to the Roseland Plant Centre and create the garden of your dreams.

T

he Roseland peninsula benefits from weather that always seems that little bit sunnier than other parts of Cornwall. At the Roseland Plant Centre, you can make the most of sunny Cornish skies with a stroll amongst the flower arrangements, really getting a feel for how they will look in your garden. The Roseland Plant Centre has an incredible variety of plants, including a range of hardy exotic plants so you can create your own Cornish garden paradise with camellias, rhododendrons, cordylines, grasses, flowering shrubs and a wide range of herbaceous perennials, both well known and a little unusual. There’s also an extensive collection of Cornish favourite, agapanthus, which never fails to make it feel like summer, as well as everything to help your garden run smoothly, including hand tools, garden sundries, vegetable and flower seeds, plant food and more. Not to mention many different types of composts, and pots in traditional and contemporary styles. And, for those who enjoy fishing, the plant centre even provides tackle and bait for sea fishing from its new dedicated fishing section.

We hear from Ben and Catherine, who tell us: “We have a very special collection of succulents and an interesting range of herbs to offer for those who are more ‘culinarily’ inclined.” Going the extra mile, the Roseland Plant Centre team are on hand to offer general garden advice and help you track down specific shrubs and trees. They also provide tailored services such as hanging basket preparation and Christmas wreath decoration, for those who want to get crafty. So, whatever you’re after to complete your garden, why not head to the Roseland Plant Centre and have a wander round in the sunshine? If you’re looking to spruce your outside space, you’re sure to find some inspiration!

MOVING WITH THE TIMES We catch up with Cornish business Britannia Lanes and learn more about their growing portfolio of services.

F

or increasingly more people, holidaying in Cornwall just isn’t enough anymore, with many deciding to make the permanent move here. Cornwall offers both the ultimate lifestyle by the sea, as well as the perfect retirement, especially for those who are escaping the stresses of city life. One company that sees a lot of relocations is Cornish removals company, Britannia Lanes. Established over 40 years ago and having built a sterling reputation, this family run firm has helped countless happy families start their new lives in Cornwall over the years. Many clients from outside the county use Britannia Lanes as a company they know they can trust, and it’s fair to say that the string of five-star reviews this company has achieved really speak for themselves. It isn’t just those moving to Cornwall that can benefit from Britannia Lanes’ unrivalled service, though. With the recent re-launch of the company’s website, Britannia Lanes, which has always had a price guide for the UK, now offers a price guide for those moving to and from Europe, as well as an international

price guide for people moving to Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and South Africa. This makes such a daunting move just that little bit easier, especially knowing you can still rely on the Britannia team’s safe hands half way around the world! Businesses, too, are well served by Britannia Lanes. Not only can office moves be seamlessly made with as little disruption to their day-to-day runnings, this fantastic Cornish business now offers Confidential Shredding Bags, which can be purchased online. These bags allow individuals and businesses who have confidential information to get rid of to do so safely and securely. If you’re disposing of up to five bags, you can deliver them to Britannia Lanes, who will destroy them for you; more than five, and the team will come and collect. If you generate regular amounts of confidential waste, Britannia Lanes’ shredding collection service can also include a free shredding console, which is securely installed in your office and emptied regularly, to a schedule that suits you and your business.

Back to removals and it’s fair to say that Britannia Lanes offers a comprehensive removals and storage service. As Managing Director, Mark Lane, explains: “There’s no one size fits all here. Our approach is centred on listening to our clients’ needs and then accommodating them as best as possible. This often includes informing them on the alternative solutions that they may not have thought of – giving them options, to either save money or reduce the hassle for them.” But where the removals service gets really smart is in Mark and the team's video surveys. Using specially developed software, the client gives a tour of their house via their smartphone or tablet. Mark tells us: “We get a very clear understanding of their needs and concerns. Having some face-to-face interaction, albeit through technology, helps provide a personal touch – we’re not just an anonymous company!” Using the survey, Mark uses his experience to work out the number of boxes and overall

volume required, creating a detailed itinerary. “It’s an extremely effective way of identifying any issues, such as items that will require extra special care, in advance of arrival. Video surveys make our estimates much more accurate, and also mean our crews are far better informed on what to expect, and the kind of packaging they’ll need.” So, if you’re thinking of making a move or have commercial needs that Britannia Lanes can help with, why not head to the new website and go from there? It may just be the smartest move you ever make!

t isn’t just its raw and rugged coastal beauty that gives the Roseland its much-coveted prestige. The peninsula is replete with superb places to eat too, each offering a different take on the area’s rich, seasonal produce. Here are just a few of our foodie favourites, to help you satisfy that sharp sea air appetite.

Craftworks At Knightor, Portscatho Working alongside Knightor Winery, the Craftworks Kitchen team is once again keeping things Cornish with their second pop-up restaurant. Indeed, having already enjoyed great success in Padstow, the launch of their Portscatho pop-up promises visitors the chance to sample what sets the Craftworks menu apart. The barn is a great place to hang out, blending elements of industrial style and shabby chic, with a cosy corner kitted out with worn out Chesterfields, a bar built from wine crates, large tables and festoon lighting. In terms of food, think brisket tacos with hot lime salsa, heaps of burgers, hotdogs, salads and dirty fries. The bar serves up some fantastic beers too, including Craftworks’ own IPA which has been crafted especially for them by St Austell Brewery and Bath Ales! Perhaps beer’s not your bag? Not to worry, Founders Mick and Danny have introduced a Wall of Wine too, selling an ever-growing list of Knightor’s superb tipples, including a divine Brut Cuvee – perfect for a celebration.

A PROPER CORNISH BREAK With stylish and comfortable accommodation and glamping in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bodrugan Barton is a great venue for yoga retreats too!

L

ast year, we caught up with owner of Bodrugan, Sally, who explained how they’d decided to meet the increasing demand for high-standard glamping accommodation. The result, as we learned, was stunning, with the site’s beautiful Wigwams already proving a big hit. These wonderfully warm camping cabins sit beautifully in the countryside, and the wider site is home to Sally and husband Tim’s sheep and Dexter cattle, making this a real escape to the country! But it’s not just the Wigwams that have garnered such a fantastic reputation for Bodrugan. The site is also home to some stunning self-catering cottages, sleeping up to eight. These are perfect if you’re looking for that ‘home from home’ escape to Cornwall, and being located so close to the Roseland Heritage Coast, they make the perfect base from which to explore everything that this beautiful pocket of Cornwall has to offer. And, with sumptuous bedrooms, modern living spaces and well equipped kitchens, you can work up the heartiest of sea-air appetites before heading back to base and cooking up a storm using the freshest local produce. For several years Bodrugan has liaised with many art and textile tutors who bring groups of enthusiastic learners to use the accommodation and stretch their creative imagination in the studio space. This year they are thrilled that they can now offer a new studio with underfloor heating and a treatment room to offer other disciplines such as yoga, well-being, writing and other activities. For those days where you simply want to relax, Bodrugan have books and games to borrow and films to watch, or why not wander

down through the farm to a secluded cove and follow the coastal path where you can really be at ease and settle into the pace of life by the sea. Raising their own lamb and supplying to Waitrose, there’s a keen focus on farming at Bodrugan. Sally explains: “The best thing is talking to people and communicating to them about food provenance, farming and how the countryside works. There’s so much interest – our guests love the idea of a farm and like to know more about the way we operate. A big bonus of having people on your land is that you get to learn what happens beyond the Tamar, and it’s vital to keep up with changing viewpoints and to understand what people want from a holiday. “At Bodrugan, they get great views, walking, beaches, comfortable, en-suite glamping cabins with firepits, outdoor furniture and a car-free site small enough for children to be left to explore. If it rains, they can use our heated indoor pool and sauna, and when tired children go to sleep, parents can enjoy a drink on the deck as they watch the ocean.” That certainly sounds like bliss to us!

NAUTICAL

Enjoy stunning sea views and delicious local seafood at The Quarterdeck restaurant.

N

estled in a secluded bay on the Roseland peninsula, you'll find The Nare. The country house hotel by the sea, The Nare overlooks the beautiful Carne beach – a long stretch of golden sand in Gerrans Bay– and has been Cornwall’s highest rated hotel for nearly 30 years. Here at Cornwall Living, we love good food and therefore highly recommend a visit to The Nare's two AA Rosette restaurant, The Quarterdeck. As the name suggests, the restaurant has a nautical theme, with classic yachting décor, and deck-like flooring, which is further enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the ocean to your table. The restaurant's sheltered, south-facing terrace is the perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining. The Quarterdeck is renowned for sourcing the finest local ingredients from land and sea. The Cornish-reared beef and lamb is some of the best around but it’s the seafood dishes that really steal the show. The Oyster Boat for example, features an array of locally caught oysters, crab, crevettes, smoked fish, scallops, and lobster arranged on a delightful wooden boat; a real show stopper, perfect for sharing.

Head chef Nick Lawrie tells us: “I moved to Cornwall because of my love for seafood. In my experience Cornish seafood is the best in the country and working here means I'm able to access an incredible variety straight from the ocean.” Current seafood dishes include Dressed Crab served with almonds and avocado, Fillet of Hake with fregola, clams, prawns, ginger, dashi, Grilled Portloe Lobster, and the vegetarian Seaweed Gnocchi with brassica, red dulse, miso and kombu crisps. And to top it all off why not try the Banana Parfait with hot Valrhona chocolate, caramel and coconut for dessert? The Quarterdeck is open throughout the year for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon cream teas and relaxed evening dining.

The family SERVICE

Edie’s Kitchen is a family run restaurant that has good food and impeccable service at its heart.

H

ere at Cornwall Living, Living one of our favourite pastimes is discovering amazing restaurants that serve high-quality food in a relaxed and friendly environment; Edie’s Kitchen is one such restaurant. Run by acclaimed chef, Nigel Brown, and his wife Kelly, Edie’s is a family restaurant that has good food and impeccable service at its heart. Named after Nigel and Kelly’s first daughter Edie, with the ‘I’s picked out in green as a nod to their new baby Iris, Edie’s truly is a family affair. After a 20-year career spent working with culinary luminaries such as Raymond Blanc and Bill Granger, Nigel has brought his well honed skills and foodie flair to the beautiful Cornish setting of Carlyon Bay, Cornwall. Similarly, Kelly has a wealth of experience in the restaurant industry, managing many high profile restaurants and providing a flawless level of customer service. Together the couple combine their talents in the restaurant industry to provide the ultimate foodie experience. Nigel tells us: “Having grown up in Cornwall, I’m fully aware of the incredible produce that we have available to us and I’m committed to using the freshest, local ingredients in their most flavoursome combinations.” Take the

cod, new potatoes, pak choi, lemon beurre blanc and brown crab mayonnaise for example, a tantalising and creative balance of flavours that work beautifully together. Kelly continues: “You can always expect seasonal, local food and a warm welcome at our wonderful new restaurant.” A fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed, we did some digging and have found this review from one happy customer: “Edie’s Kitchen is run by a husband and wife team, he works wonders in the kitchen and she charms guests front of house. The steak, which is always a good measure of a restaurant, is excellent and all other dishes are equally as good.” So there you have it, a first-hand account of just how good the foodie experience at Edie’s is. Don’t take our word for it though, head to Edie’s for yourself and tuck into delicious local fare – expertly cooked and served in a family friendly and welcoming environment.

Out and about We offer just a few ideas to help you make your time on the Roseland peninsula truly memorable.

LACE UP YOUR BOOTS! For those who like to lace up their boots and explore on foot, the Roseland is home to a number of wonderful walking routes. To find out more visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/ roseland

Thrills and spills The Roseland is the perfect base for those seeking an on-the-water adventure. If this sounds like you, then just down the coast in Porthleven you’ll find Vertical Blue Adventures, offering SUP lessons and hire, guided kayak tours and exciting multi-day adventures, tailored to you. These can include kayaking, wild swimming, shelter building, fires and foraging, as well as moonlit paddle boarding and exploring the coastline on foot. Ian and the team run guided SUP tours along the Helford Passage and River Fal – a fantastic way in which to discover these beautiful and naturally diverse waterways. www.verticalblue.co.uk

Two-wheeled tours Perhaps you prefer discovering new surroundings on two wheels? If so, you couldn’t be in a better place. There are plenty of scenic cycles around the Roseland, and it’s a great base from which to explore other spots along the south coast too, including the Helford, the Lizard and Penzance. The best part is that you needn’t worry about loading up the bike rack for the long drive down, because Go ByCycle can deliver hire bikes directly to you, wherever you are in the Duchy. They can deliver your rentals directly on arrival if you choose, so you can be mounted and away as soon as you’re off the train! www.cornwallbikehire.co.uk

RIGHT The castles of St Mawes and Pendennis, built by Henry VIII

Roseland in bloom The gardens of Cornwall, thanks to its unique, sub-tropical climate, are so much more than manicured borders and well-kempt walkways. They represent a world of evocative, unfamiliar smells; of colourful tapestries that even the most verdantly inclined can’t help but be in awe of. The Roseland is no exception, and one of our favourite gardens here has to be Trelissick. Owned by the National Trust, this welcoming country house and garden commands a staggering position overlooking the water, combining the fabulous vista with bursts of garden colour and magical woodland walks. Whether you’re admiring the ginger lilies, dahlias and magnificent Japanese red cedar tree (planted in 1898!), or exploring the Cornish orchard where the team grow and press their own apples, Trelissick is simply a wonderful place to spend a summer’s day. Why not pop your head into Trelissick Gallery – located in an award-winning barn conversion – where you’ll find a variety of work by local artists and craftspeople, from the well-established to the up and coming. Then, round the day off with a warming bowl of soup, a slice of cake or a light lunch in the café, before picking up a memento of your day’s adventure, be it from the gift shop, the garden and plant centre, or even both! www.nationaltrust.org.uk/trelissick A tour through time The castles of Pendennis and St Mawes, between them, offer an eye-opening insight into England’s maritime history. Built by Henry VIII between 1539 and 1545, they were designed to counter the invasion threat posed by Catholic France and Spain,

guarding the important anchorage of the Carrick Roads from either side of the estuary mouth. At St Mawes, as you enter via the original guardhouse, you can still see the intricate stone carvings of the Tudor royal arms, complete with Latin inscriptions flattering the king and his son, Edward. Inside you can explore the tower, known as the ‘oubliette’, where prisoners or unruly solders were kept in the dark as punishment for their crimes or misconducts. Up onto the open roof of the forward bastion and you’ll find a parapet with four embrasures for the guns that protected the river, and at the edge of the site, you’ll find the remains of the defensive gun platforms from Tudor times. Why not make a day of it by taking the ferry to Falmouth and exploring Pendennis too? During the First and Second World Wars, the fortress was manned and armed, once again to defend the strategic waters of the Carrick Roads. Discover the weapons of war, from Tudor, Napoleonic and Victorian times, through to the 20th century. Follow the tunnels down to the Half Moon Battery and discover the underground magazine where ammunition was stored during WWII; imagine the tension as the big guns were prepared to engage the enemy; learn how the Battery Observation Post provided a roundthe-clock watch, pinpointing enemy vessels on the horizon, and see how the guns of the Half Moon Battery were controlled. www.english-heritage.org.uk

hen it comes to making improvements to your home, what better time to start? With sunny days and long evenings, there’s no excuse not to start tackling those tasks that, until now, have been put on the backburner. If you’ve got your eye on your kitchen and want to give it a refresh in time for summer then here’s some inspiration to kick-start your design ideas. Retallack Kitchens owners, David and Jo, explain: “This season sees a return to high gloss dark blue and white colours for doors, or a more natural textured wood effect.” The dark blue draws to mind days spent by the sea with the contrast of white offsetting the colour and creating a vibrant atmosphere. A trend for combining both colour and wood effect has also begun to emerge to create a fusion between the traditional and modern, meaning that this effect can be used in any style of property without compromising on the integrity of the building itself. “I personally find the on-trend colour of dark blue and white highly amusing as this is what my mum had installed in her kitchen nearly 40 years ago.” Jo tells us, “her forward thinking and interest in design must have rubbed off on me even at a young age – I’ll leave you to work out how old I am!”

Whether you live in a large or small property, storage is always an integral part of design. Drawers over the last few years have become more popular and are now being incorporated into every conceivable cupboard around the kitchen. “Hidden drawers, drawers around sinks, internal drawers as well as pan drawers are now very much the norm in every kitchen we design and install,” explains David. With innovative ways to make the most of your space available, you can expect to achieve a vibrant and seamless design with Retallack Kitchens, so make sure to head to the showroom in Lostwithiel and be inspired by the latest trends and designs ready to revamp your kitchen and inject some life into your home this summer.

gem

et on the beautiful Roseland peninsula in the idyllic fishermen’s village of Portloe, Kerbenetty is a hidden gem for holidaymakers. Perched overlooking the crystal clear waters of Portloe harbour; the sun-drenched terrace provides spectacular ocean views where you can while away your morning sipping coffee and watching boats lazily making their way out to sea. “When you can sit on the terrace and enjoy the view, why go anywhere else?” says cottage owner Caroline Lamb. Then when you are ready for something a little more active, head down to the small sandy beach and discover the complex ecosystems that lie captured in the rock pools at low tide, or take a refreshing dip in the clear blue waters for an invigorating start to the day. Thanks to its location in the heart of Portloe, you have easy access to everything the village has to offer with a small local pub just up the road, offering a traditional fishing village feel. When on holiday in Portloe, Caroline’s granny spotted Kerbenetty whilst walking along the coast path and instantly fell in love; she contacted the owner and insisted that if they were to ever sell the property, she would buy it. In 1958 she became the proud owner of the beautiful home, which remains in the family today, and now the cottage is available for you to fall in love with too.

Kerbenetty is let with Cornish Cottage Holidays, allowing Caroline to take advantage of the many owner perks. They also offer a managed service option which frees owners from having to be involved in the day-to-day running of the property, as the Cornish Cottage Holidays team ensure that it's well maintained and ready for its next guests. Not to mention Caroline's property is adored by its guests, who often come back year after year. And it’s no wonder, considering it’s the perfect cottage for a dream Cornish coastal break.

TOP TIPS We ask George at Cornish Traditional Cottages for advice on making the most of a holiday home.

A

é ABOVE George and the team know how to maximise your holiday home’s potential

t Cornish Traditional Cottages, the dedicated team are experts at holiday letting; they know every trick in the book for maximising your home’s potential. So, if you’ve recently chosen to let your property for holidays, or if you’ve been letting for years, here are some tips from company owner, George, that are well worth taking a look at! In relation to those first steps to letting, George tells us: “Once your property is ‘out there’, enquiries should start to come in. Although, not all of them will result in a booking, you should treat them all as potential guests.” This means responding professionally and promptly, always aim for a maximum of a few hours, and the same day if you can. It also pays to offer extra information, or try to accommodate people by suggesting alternative arrangements if your property can’t cater for them on their chosen dates. Because holidaymakers may enquire about several properties at once, the quicker you respond, the more likely you are to secure the booking! Then, once you have your booking, a great way to make your property the best it can be, as quickly as possible, is to collect feedback. “Peer opinion forms a vital part of decision making and buying behaviour in today’s world,” explains George. “Holidaymakers are far more likely to book a holiday home

that has positive opinions and garnering this valuable information will also help your marketing by raising your ranking on holiday letting portals.” However, getting your guests’ feedback isn’t always easy. George suggests keeping a guestbook in a clearly visible place and sending guests an email asking for feedback within four-to-ten days after their stay, explaining that it will help you improve your accommodation for future guests. “It’s also worth mentioning that you’re keen to encourage guests to return, and to make contact during their stay if something isn’t quite right.” The team at Cornish Traditional Cottages strive to help you achieve your goals by building a loyal following of happy guests. For more expert advice on making your holiday let a success, why not give the team a call?
