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 back 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.


Riverside is a lovely place, we had a great welcome and the property itself was peaceful and well kept. We had a lovely holiday and we will be back soon and have already recommended to friends.
Mrs Jolley

We loved the cosy, homely feel of the property and also how everything needed was readily available! Wonderful place and we certainly hope to come back!
Miss Allen

Very spacious and comfortable and ideally located for all the sights in Cornwall.
Mrs Willshire

A good central location to enable you to explore a number of places of interest in Cornwall. Quiet cottage location. Good value for money and to a high standard for the price, it was more than what we expected; beds very comfortable and ample room in all rooms. Liked the downstairs lounge and open style of the patio doors. We were a party of six and everyone agreed that this cottage was well above the standard we expect from the price. Everything you needed was present including items that you would not have thought of being supplied. Big thanks to the owner.
Mr Wong

Everything was perfect. We would not hesitate to recommend the accommodation.
