Sarah from Bromley stayed at Tantallon for 7 nights in June
We spent a week at the house at the beginning of July. We has good weather so we were able to make full use of the garden and outdoor decking area. The house has a lovely west facing view over Carrick Roads and some local farmland. The bedrooms were comfortable and all had windows with views to the west. The living areas were well appointed and a pleasant place to be. The heating was on hot when we arrived which we turned down. We soon figured out how to keep the house cool during the hot weather after a few days. We were able to park three cars on the driveway. Access to the driveway is steep so caution should be used with the angle of approach for vehicles.

Irene from Little Leigh, Near Northwich stayed at Tantallon for 14 nights in September
A big thank you to the owner who had taken on board my comments following our visit earlier in the year and had addressed all the points I had made. This made for an even better two weeks here despite a lack of sunshine and I would thoroughly recommend Tantallon to anyone wishing for a comfortable, spacious and well equipped house in a great location. It is so conveniently placed for proximity to wonderful beaches (lots being dog-friendly all year) plus the fact that you can reach the coastal path by foot in minutes so a great spot for walkers too. Also with the picturesque village of St. Mawes just two miles away you are not isolated - you can pop down for your shopping, have lunch here or even take the beautiful coastal path and enjoy a walk for your daily newspaper! We hope to be back again here again very soon.

Sarah from York stayed at Tantallon for 7 nights in July
This property hit the mark for us. Fabulous views, excellent location, clean, tidy and very comfortable. A well equipped kitchen - sharp knives, big pans, serving dishes, great oven are always missed out in self-catering but not here. Great for our dogs & the space and privacy was much appreciated. BBQ was clean & we enjoyed using it. Possibly the patio could do with a little sprucing up - painting the wall would make a huge difference as would improving the container planting, and maybe windbreaks to make it even more user-friendly. If you want a relaxed holiday I would highly recommend Tantallon because the owners have got their priorities absolutely right.

Irene from Little Leigh, Near Northwich stayed at Tantallon for 14 nights in April
Tantallon is a lovely house in the most marvellous setting with stunning views down the valley to the creek below. The gardens are lovely with many different shrubs and plants and we would have made use of the decked area had the weather been warmer. The comments we make below are points we feel should be addressed and both prospective holiday renters and the owners should be made aware of. Firstly, on entering the property is a sign stating that any electricity used over 15 per week is chargeable. This is not according to the booking confirmation that states it is included. Also, there are no instructions for the heating. You are also requested to do a fairly thorough clean upon leaving which we would have done anyway. We did not use the BBQ but it had been left in the boiler room in a dirty condition. Most of the two weeks we were there the weather was bright but cold and we had to supplement the heating by purchasing coal and logs for the open fire. The warmest room in the house was the master bedroom en-suite as the large towel rail was extremely hot which we switched off during the day whilst we were out. The Conservatory/Dining Room was very cold indeed although there was an electric heater in there with a broken foot. The left side of the electric double oven in the kitchen needs attention as it is not heating up sufficiently to cook or grill.There was no instruction book available.The bottom of the garden needs adequate fencing. There is currently an open rope fence along the perimeter. Although there are disclaimers throughout the property advising children not to be left unattended in the garden I think it is an accident waiting to happen as there is a steep drop into treetops on the other side. Fortunately we have a sensible dog but I was initially concerned for her safety and would have been paranoid had I had children with us. Despite all the foregoing we had a great holiday and would return to Tantallon. It just needs a little TLC!
Reply from Tom BarstowFirstly, I?m very pleased you had a wonderful time at Tantallon and plan to visit us again. I agree the views are stunning. I appreciate hearing the guests' perspective. In future, if you have a problem while you are staying, do get in touch and we'll try to sort it while you are there. In any event, let me run through your points and explain how they are to be addressed: I shall remove the cap on electricity. In actuality it is very rare for families to exceed the free 15 per week. The intention of a cap was to encourage guests to turn off lights and appliances when not in use. I am sorry that you were not able to find the instructions for the heating and oven - I shall make sure they can be readily found. Our request for how the cottage should be left on departure is not intended to offend. It is a fairly standard request in line with the Booking conditions. I employ a team of professional cleaners to clean the cottage thoroughly between lettings. However, if a visitor leaves it in a poor state it can be very difficult for them to finish cleaning it before the next visitors arrive. The BBQ should be cleaned. I?ll make sure that my housekeeping team check that it has been done. With regard to the fire, I know how much some of our guests enjoy sitting by the real fire and it certainly helps warm the living room on those cold days! We supply a complimentary bag of logs and a scuttle of coal which, is good for at least a couple of evenings; after that there are several service stations and shops locally from which it is easy to replenish. With respect to the oven, we installed the big range so that it's possible to cook for large numbers with ease. The downside is that it can take a while to heat up. I have had the heating time checked with a thermometer and after 10 minutes it gets up to full temperature. I appreciate that this is quite a long period so I have arranged for a technician to come to check the elements and the preheat time and hopefully it can be fixed; if not, or if the pre heat time can?t be improved, I shall replace the oven. Lastly, and most importantly, I note your comments in regard the garden. My family and countless others, with toddlers and dogs included have enjoyed running around the lawns at Tantallon with the bank as it is for the last ten years without any mishap. The rope which can be seen in the website is not intended as a safety barrier but merely there to warn of the dangers. I have avoided a substantial fence as it will obstruct the view from the lower lawn but to allay your concern when I return in June I am going to replace the rope with a fence. We will still rely on the caution notice to ensure that parents keep their children under close supervision as we do not want to give parents a false sense of security. Thanks again for your comments and I hope you will come and enjoy the Roseland at Tantallon again. Thomas Barstow

Guest from Boston stayed at Tantallon for 7 nights in October
Tantallon was in a very good position,close to St.Mawes and plenty of local walks; beautiful views from most rooms. Strange instructions from the owner, to clean and hoover throughout,including cleaning all toilets,showers etc.on the day we left. We are happy to leave holiday homes empty of rubbish and tidy,but the cleaners are employed for a reason. There was also an instruction to remove the TV aerial if a storm threatened, which again sounded odd. The usual holiday home problem of several vital lightbulbs which didn't work.It's easy enough for cleaners to check this in between visitors. The electric oven struggled to reach a temperature hot enough to cook anything,but the hob worked ok. The house was advertised as electricity included in the price,but a letter from the owner on arrival made it clear that we would be charged for any use above 15.This should be mentioned in the original advert, or it is just misleading. Otherwise a pleasant house in which to holiday on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.

Guest from Newark stayed at Tantallon for 7 nights in August
A beautiful and well equipped cottage, and cot and high chair were provided. Only suggestion I would make is to provide some plastic plates and cups for children. I'm not quite sure why we were asked to telephone the owners an hour or so before our arrival as it seemed to inconvenience them- but I suppose they need to be certain that renters are coming.

We are back safely after a lovely week and thoroughly enjoyed the house and all it offered.
Julia , Aug 2012
We wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tantallon - the cottage is in a wonderful private spot and the views are stunning. We're missing them already! Your information packs were invaluable and the Fal River website is also an excellent source. We all had a fantastic week enjoying the peninsula. Coastal walks to some of the hidden coves and beaches, rib ride to Smugglers Cove for dinner, kayaking, coastal sea safaris, evenings crabbing in St Mawes harbour! So much to enjoy, we will definitely visit the area again!
Holly , Jul 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tantallon. The house is extremely comfortable with spectacular views and location.

D Hollingshead, Sep 2011
Our week at Tantallon in August ticked all the boxes - 8 adults and 3 babies could have resulted in chaos but the house and studio provided exactly what we needed (they even produced high chairs - owners comment: one was provided and the other two hired locally) and with the lovely big sitting room, the families could relax together without being cramped. The views from the windows are spectacular and it was lovely to sit on the deck in the garden and gaze across Carrick Roads.

The sailors sailed (we had taken a mooring at St Just) and the walkers walked and the dogs loved it too. There are many interesting gardens to visit nearby and the young took the ferry to Falmouth and enjoyed their visit to the Maritime Museum. All in all an action packed holiday.
Liz, Aug 2010
.....We had splendid barbecues on the sheltered terrace which had space to set up a great long table for all of us plus friends and it was good to feel that the bustle of St. Mawes was accessible if wanted but we could be well away from crowds even in the height of summer.
Suzanna, Aug 2010

The house was lovely and such a fantastic view from the living room............ We found the house very well equipped and in particular some very nice touches like the provision of cleaning materials/dishwasher powder etc- Xmas is quite a testing time in the culinary department so it was good that we found everything we needed.

I imagine it must be quite enchanting in the summer in the garden and patio, although of course we didn’t get to experience it this time.

Tantallon, Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall

Located in a commanding position on the edge of the sleepy village of St Just in Roseland, Tantallon benefits from outstanding panoramic views of St Just Creek and beyond across the waters of the Carrick Roads. From almost all of the rooms, you can look down upon the historic churchyard at St Just in Roseland and at the boats gently swinging on their moorings in the creek. The garden is spacious and benefits from a huge rear patio area for the morning sunshine and a deck area to the front for afternoon and evening sun. The whole site is shielded from the road by a high hedgerow and therefore is particularly private and quiet.

The harbour village of St Mawes is literally one mile to the south, there are some delightful beaches nearby and the whole of the Roseland Peninsula is on your doorstep.

Tantallon has been progressively refurbished by its Owners over the last few years and now offers accommodation for up to 9 over 2 floors in the main house and a single bedroom studio in a separate annexe. All the rooms in the house are immaculately presented and all benefit from the breathtaking views. The living room is a particularly relaxing place to be and has a selection of very comfortable chairs where you can relax and look out on the boats in the estuary.

Accommodation
Ground Floor: The front door leads into the kitchen area and through into the dining area. The living room, master double bedroom with ensuite shower & bathroom, family bathroom & separate shower room all lead off the main corridor. The master bedroom is quite superb, having dual aspect and a door out onto the rear patio so you can enjoy some morning sun. It also benefits from a super-king sized bed.
First Floor: The stairs lead to the first floor with one double bedroom, one twin room and one single bedroom. There is a separate WC and each of the bedrooms has a wash basin.
Separate Annexe: Double bedroom with en-suite shower room and small kitchenette.
External: Rear patio area with outside furniture, patio deck to the front with outside furniture and spacious grounds.

Facilities & Services
Heating is oil fired central heating throughout and there is also and open fireplace in the living room. There is a TV/DVD/VHS/Digital TV recorder in the living room.

The kitchen has a range cooker, washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge and freezer. There is WiFi throughout the property. There is a Weber BBQ for use if required.

Miscellaneous
Electricity, bed linen & towels are all included, but we would request you bring your own beach towels. There is a large parking area at Tantallon with easily space for 4 cars. Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome at a small additional cost of £25 per dog / per week. We regret no smoking is permitted. We regret strictly no large groups of guests under the age of 25.

The little village of St Just in Roseland is located about 2 miles north of St Mawes.

A quiet, sleepy little village, it has a pretty little creek and the quite delightful church and wonderful churchyard. No visit to the Roseland is complete without seeing this peaceful place. Probably the only sub tropical churchyard in the British Isles, it is a beautiful & tranquil place with some unique flora.

St Mawes is one of the finest waterside villages in Cornwall. Situated overlooking an idyllic bay on the eastern side of the famous Falmouth Estuary, St Mawes has one of the mildest climates in Britain due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream. The sea is at the heart of the village and has helped to shape St Mawes from the little fishing village to the fashionable holiday destination that is so popular with visitors. A mecca for boating enthusiasts, St Mawes is a particularly popular sailing centre. Weekly club racing, village regattas and larger events are commonplace on the superb waters of the bay all through the summer.

St Mawes has so much to offer the visitor. St Mawes Castle was built by Henry VIII and is a splendid place to take in the views of the Carrick Roads. There are miles of coastal and countryside walks to take in and some idyllic beaches on which to relax and watch the world go by. The little Place Ferry takes visitors to explore St Anthony's Head or there are regular ferries to Falmouth. Being situated on the seafront, the village is also known for the restaurants and pubs that serve superb fish and shellfish dishes all year round. There is a selection of pubs & hotels with restaurants (including the renowned Tresanton Hotel) all within easy walking distance. There is a range of shops all within a few minutes’ walk including a well-stocked Cooperative store, Post Office, chemist, butchers, and art, book and clothes shops. The village also has a doctor’s surgery and a dentist’s surgery.
