“Such a lovely cottage to come home to at the end of each day – we have had some
much needed time relaxing together and moseying around the beautiful coastline & pretty villages.”
Catherine & Glyn, Somerset, Apr 2017

“A lovely 4th visit here. Thank you for the beautiful flowers / scones and cream
on our arrival. We love the new conservatory sofa – very comfortable. Thanks Claire for popping in & your hubby to check all was well. We look forward to another visit!”
Andrea and Chris, Nathaniel and Caleb., Apr 2017

“After a horrid Journey we arrived to a welcoming, warm, light and bright cottage. With all mod cons, this home from home was clean, tidy, and well equipped with everything one needs, including Zannah’s excellent scones! Yum Yum!! We’ve found Probus to have all the amenities we need as well as being in an excellent position to explore Cornwall north, south, east & west, made easier by the wealth of maps & information kept in & on the kitchen dresser. Thank you Lucy for all your great communications & here’s to the new owners maintaining the high standards that Jane & you have set, as we shall want to come back soon.”
Mr & Mrs Twiselton, Dec 2016-Jan 2017

“Another wonderful stay – 2 weeks is just not enough. We love Waterlily, we love Probus and we love The Roseland. Thought we had seen and done it all last time, this time we know we haven’t.
Will have to come again. Hope to see you again.”
The Gills, Chiswick, London, Aug 2016
