If you are looking for a relaxing time, in a peaceful and stunning location, Ardevora Vean is perfect for you. Nestled in the beautiful countryside of the Roseland Peninsula and close to the upper reaches of the River Fal, this immaculately renovated west wing of Ardevora Mill is a great place to stay. Off the beaten track (down a long farm track), yet only 10 mins from the nearest beach and within easy reach of both St Mawes & Portscatho. Regret no dogs.
If you are holidaying with family or friends, two additional cottages (Crowjy Ardevora & Ardevora an Gylen) are just across the courtyard - booking these will give you accommodation for 11 guests in total. N.B. Both these cottages have a Sunday changeover.

Christopher from London stayed at Ardevora Vean for 6 nights in September
The location is ideal if you want to visit Roseland and enjoy all of its beauty and facilities. The cottages are down a farm track with lots of pheasants and rabbits to help you on your way. A warm welcome awaits you. The owners even left us a welcoming cream tea and milk. Everything is provided almost like a hotel. It is clean, well appointed, great cooking facilities and bathroom with one level shower for those less able. You can rent a kayack from the owners if you want to explore the nearby creek. There is a great pub, the Roseland Inn, 10 minutes drive away with fine food, local beer and wine and a great and friendly owner who also cooks for you and his wife serves behind the bar most nights.
Reply from TeriWow, thanks Chris for such a suberb review. It was lovely to hear that you enjoyed your time here so much. Hope to see you both again in the future.

Theresa from Shaftesbury stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in September
Ardevora Vean was a world away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Situated down a 3/4 mile track which is all part of the experience. Isolated in the nicest possible way and very restful. Very comfortable and spacious accommodation and very welcoming and helpful owners. If you are looking for an an isolated and peaceful place to stay then this is it.
Reply from TeriIt always lovely to get a 5* review - it shows that we are getting things right for our guests and it's so nice to know our guests are so happy here.

Stephen from Ruislip stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in June
We enjoyed our week very much in the cottage, which was clean, warm and comfortable. The conversion had been carried out to a very high standard.The owners were very helpful and friendly, and lots of useful information was provided about what to visit in the area, both by the owners and by the holiday company. The rural location was beautiful, with lots of wildlife in the nearby fields and on the river. The only downside was the very long drive down the farm track to reach the cottage; fine if you have a large car or a 4x4, but a bit nerve-racking if you have a small car which you're quite fond of.
Reply from Teri It is nice to hear that you have had an enjoyable week in our cottage Ardevora Vean. This time of year is lovely as the hedgerows are blossoming and are really colourful with lots of wild flowers, however the downside of this is the lanes and track are far narrower and therefore can be a challenge for those not used to them!

Anna from Abingdon stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in June
A lovely secluded cottage within a short walk of the creek. Well appointed and within a short drive of the local pub which is friendly and reasonable value.
Reply from TeriThanks for leaving this review, we are pleased with the overall scores you gave us, however we were slightly disappointed with a 4/5 for cleanliness - it would be good to know how you think we could improve on this.

Arabelle from York stayed at Ardevora Vean for 6 nights in June
We were every happy with our stay at Ardevora Vean, the cottage is lovely. It was very clean and tidy and very spacious for a 1 bed cottage. It has good wet room with a great shower. We had a warm welcome which including scones, jam and cream which was a very nice touch :-) Although tucked away in the countryside the location is quite central to most of the key spots in Cornwall. Newquay and St Ives are only 40 minutes drive away. We received a welcome back from Cornwall Cottages before we arrived which was very helpful, it gave us a good overview of the area including places to visit and info on the beaches. We would recommend this cottage to friends and family we had a lovely stay here. Thank you
Reply from TeriIt is always great to hear that our guests are happy with everything here at Ardevora and thank you for leaving this lovely, informative review.

Guest from Warminster stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in May
The cottage is extremely well fitted out, spacious and comfortable. It is in a lovely setting and extremely quiet. The only slight drawback is the long track to the cottage which is very rough and some people might find this difficult.
Reply from TeriThanks for this great review of 4.8/5. We are pleased you enjoyed your time in Ardevora Vean - sorry you found the track a little challenging though!

Keith from Bodmin stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in February
Wonderful cottage : very comfortable with everything we needed. Creek nearby with good walking on a dry day. Plenty of wildlife to watch especially the pheasants running down the lane in front of the car looking very much like little road runners
Reply from Teri We are really pleased you were comfortable and happy in our cottage Ardevora Vean. Thanks for such a good review.

Guest from Derby stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in August
The owners were friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was very clean and up to modern standards. All was well equipped and the property was very tranquil. We were not able to take out the Kayaks but enjoyed taking their dog for a walk along the river bank.
Reply from TeriThanks for your nice review. Tizzy enjoyed the walks too, however she is housebound at the moment as she has broken her leg!

Guest from Paderborn stayed at Ardevora Vean for 5 nights in April
We had a wonderfull time at Ardevora Vean with a nice welcome and easy organization. The house is really beautiful and suitable for two persons. Fantastic would be a sofa instead of two single-arm chairs. We recommend the place to everybody who is looking for a quiet and relaxing place as a base for a trip to Cornwall. Patrick

Guest from Derby stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in August
As I said above. Everything was excellent once you got to the cottage, but then you felt marooned with the track. It is narrow, extremely rough in places, and goes on for ever. Even in a 4x4 we were shaken around. We would have liked to go to the local pub in the evening but could not face the journey. I would really like to give it 5 stars, but cannot honestly say I would recommend it.
Reply from Teri & AndrewWe are pleased you liked our cottage and thanks for the great scores you gave us in this respect. However it is a shame you found the track such a problem. We do advertise that we are at the end of a 3/4 mile farm track, although we do appreciate this year's extreme weather has increased the hedgerow growth which has narrowed the lane more than usual. We have taken on board your comments and will continue with our ongoing programme to maintain and improve the condition of the track.

The only thing we didn't like was the road into Ardevora Vean. It was rough in places and a long narrow drive and bushes along the sides rubbing our vehicle. The accommodation was excellent.

Guest from Thame stayed at Ardevora Vean for 5 nights in May
Received a very warm welcome from the owners. The cottage is very well maintained and well equipped for eating in, with a fully fitted modern kitchen area. It is situated at the end of a remote long lane but in our view it is worth it as the cottage is set in such a tranquil setting. The owners are close at hand if you need any advice/assistance with anything. We would definitely return in the future.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the cottage, a lovely cream tea awaited us on arrival which was a nice surprise. Teri the owner gave us a very friendly welcome. The cottage is light comfortable well equipped and spacious. It was lovely to see the moon and stars so clearly at night because there is no street lighting. If you are looking for a bit of peace and tranquillity then this is an excellent location. Jeannette & David Bradbrook

Guest from Lymington stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in June
The cottage was excellent apart from an intermittent fault with the supply of hot water. The location was superb, but I feel it should be made clearer that access involves a 3/4 mile drive down a very rough track. The spaniel Tizzy was delightful and the owners could not have been more helpful and friendly.

Guest from Sudbury stayed at Ardevora Vean for 7 nights in July
Spent a most enjoyable week at Aredevora Vean, a barn conversion near the village of Philleigh in Cornwall. The owners were very friendly, helpful and concerned that I enjoyed my stay. The property was very well equipped, particularly the kitchen, and exceptionally well presented and clean. There was a cream tea in the fridge as a welcome gift. The property is beautifully situated in a very quiet location at the end of a long stoney farm track. It feels private but not isolated. The garden area adjoins a field with trees in the background and is not overlooked. There is plenty of space to park close by. A short walk alongside the river leads to the shore of a beautiful creek. The only downside could be the condition of the track, which is uneven and could cause a problem for low vehicles but was quite accessible for my small car.
Reply from Teri & AndrewThank you so much Eileen for this great review. It is always nice to receive feedback from guests and we are pleased you enjoyed staying here at Ardevora.

The property was very good and probably the best we have used on the Roseland peninsular, and we will probably use it again.
J Perham , Sep 2011
Excellent, crisp, clean cottage tucked away in a lovely part of Roseland. Our hosts Andrew and Teri took time to welcome us, have a chat and offer helpful information on the surrounding area.
D Shepperson, Jun 2010

Vean is in the west wing of Ardevora Mill and has been carefully converted, retaining many original features. With high ceilings, original beams and very comfortable furnishings, the owners have created a superb hideaway with a secluded south facing courtyard garden. In the grounds of the Mill there are two other cottages (Crowjy Ardevora & Ardevora an Gylen) and all 3 properties can be combined to provide accommodation for up to 11 people. You will be warmly welcomed to Ardevora Mill by the owners, Teri & Andrew, who really go out of their way to make you feel totally at home in this very special place.

Accommodation
Lower Ground Floor Only: Taking a couple of steps down into the pleasant courtyard garden you will enter into a spacious hallway, from which doors lead into all rooms.

The wet style shower room also has a WC and wash hand basin, with a non slip tiled floor.
