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.

Very clean and comfortable cottage with very pleasant and quiet surroundings!
Good amenities, but little things were missing, like shower gel, and in the kitchen salt, pepper, ketchup!
I would recommend this cottage and being close to Looe and Fowey is a great attraction!
A lovely renovated Barn. Cosy, very clean and warm. Equipped for all our needs.
We stayed in Apple Tree Cottage and it was perfect. Received a lovely welcome from the owners and a plate of scones. The barn was very clean, modern and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. In a nice location, with good access to the surrounding area. Thank you so much. Would recommend, just what you want from a holiday cottage :)
Lovely, modernised, comfy cottage located well for travelling
We really enjoyed our stay and had a great welcome from Mike and Tine. The cottage has everything we needed, is excellently styled and furnished and was just a few mins from the main road for travelling. Couldn’t have asked for more.
Very nice, clean house
The house is clean and tidy with everything in great condition. The friendly owners are right next door if you need anything. There are lots of great activities very close by. We really enjoyed our stay here.
We`ve just stayed here for a weekend and its perfect, everything is just so clean and tidy and tastefully decorated.The owners are very welcoming on arrival they had left us homemade scones with cream and jam which were delicious.. Its situated in lovely surroundings with a pub just down the road which we walked too ( a torch is needed) There are plenty of lovely places not too far from there so a great location to explore..I would recommend this to anyone for a perfect holiday home, in the summer it would be lovely as there is seating outside..
