About Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans
We are Michael Evans, my wife Tine and my daughter Amy, also my parents Frank and Doreen. We have been holidaying in Cornwall and Devon for many years and decided that when my parents finally retired we would all sell up and move to the west country to enjoy the fresh air, wonderful countryside and fantastic beaches.
Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Michael Evans, Tine Evans, Frank Evans, Doreen Evans chose Sheviock
Glebe barn, with the twin cottages of Tawny and Apple Tree gave us the living space we needed, with the added bonus of the chance of running a holiday let. I have been coming to Whitsand Bay since i was a young boy, and we have rented many holiday lets over the years and always envied the lifestyle and wanted to give it a try for ourselves. We loved the location of the property, it is very private as we are surrounded by woodland, but not too remote making visiting the many sights and places of interest in the area very easy indeed.
What makes this Cottage unique
We feel the property offers a unique blend of the tranquility of being surrounded by woodland, and nature at the centre of the Rame Peninsula, whilst also being close to good transport routes, a major city and many other towns and villages of interest of two beautiful counties.

Mike an Tine are Perfect hosts. The area of Sheviock and Rame peninsula are a perfect retreat from the crowded Cornwall spots. The welcoming was super nice with homemade scones which made us relax after a long journey.

Cottage full of charm
The 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay in the 2 bedroom cottage. We found it a good base for our first visit to Cornwall. Cottage is well equipped, comfortable and cosy.
Compact, but immaculate. Very clean and tidy. Best small cottage we have stayed in around Cornwall.
We found the cottage in a lovely location surrounded by woodland. Close to Plymouth, Looe, Polperro and the beach at either Whitsand Bay or Cawsand is only 3 miles away. Eden project is not too far away either. Torpoint ferry only 5 miles away. The weather was good for us for the rest of the week after a night of rain. Tawny Cottage is like a home away from home, ideal for a couple or small family. We hope that we will be able to stay again should our holiday dates be available. Definitely recommend the cottage as one of the best we have ever stayed in.
Brilliant, immaculate cottage with great hosts
Fantastic stay at Tawny Cottage - Mike and Tine were great hosts, cottage was immaculate, and they even got out some bath toys for our 7 month old to borrow in the bath!
Cottage itself is cosy, quiet and has all the amenities you need for a long stay.
Great location to explore Cornwall, with easy driving distance of the quaint fishing towns of Looe and Fowey, as well as Bodmin and the Eden Project.
Thoroughly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and lovely holiday cottage to see Cornwall.
