About Kate and Kevin Thomas
We moved to Cornwall as a family in October 2010 with the intention of setting up our own holiday letting business and to have our own Cornish escape from our previous lifestyle. We are Kate and Kevin Thomas and have 3 young boys who love the freedom of the great outdoors. Little Rosewarne is a smallholding of some 10 acres and in the past has had its own dairy herd. We started to convert the old cattle shed and creamery at the beginning of 2012 and wanted to maintain the character of the building while providing a sustainable future for the farm. We keep chickens at Little Rosewarne and currently enjoy eggs from 3 Copper Marans, 2 Speckled Marans and one Cream Legbar. We also raise Berkshire pigs. These are black haired and famed for their great quality pork.
Kate and Kevin Thomas purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Kate and Kevin Thomas chose Breage
We bought Little Rosewarne after holidaying in the Porthleven area over the past 20 years. We know the area well and would spend most of our holiday time either in Porthleven or towards Falmouth. When we made the decision to move to Cornwall we knew we wanted to be close to the things and areas we loved. However, we had never been to Godolphin Cross or for that matter Godolphin House. But when we saw Little Rosewarne, we fell in love with the place and felt with its proximity to the areas we enjoyed spending time in, it would make the ideal place for us to live and raise our family. Little Rosewarne itself is a traditional Cornish farmhouse with extensive gardens. We wanted to buy a property where there was the potential for a blank canvas and for us to make our own mark. The first of which is The Old Dairy. It also means we are close at hand if we are needed. The area is stunning because it is situated near to Godolphin House with easy access to the the beach and fantastic areas and places to explore.
What makes this Cottage unique
We believe that 'The Old Dairy' and 'Hayloft' at Little Rosewarne is the perfect place to escape to, and explore this part of Cornwall. We hope that having spent many years staying in quality holiday accommodation we have worked out what works and what is sometimes missing and it is to this end we hope we can provide that little something extra. If you feel we have forgotten something or there is something we can do to improve your stay then please ask.

Amazing 1st cornwall stay !!!!
The hayloft was beautiful and clean with everthing you could need for a brilliant first time in cornwall kevin and katie were brilliant hosts friendly and helpful, location was brilliant couldnt have asked for more would book again tomorrow if i could.
Room with a view
A lovely, quiet location with views over open countryside. Just 13 rabbits and a pheasant for company.
Thank you so much to Kate and Kevin, they have given so much thought to setting up The Hayloft; from a very comfortable bed to great cookware. Fresh home-made scones with jam and Cornish clotted cream welcomed us, and milk and wine in the fridge! Thank you.
The Hayloft is light and airy and very clean. Highly recommended. If we brave the Cornish winds again, we would certainly want to stay there again.
Amazing property with all we could wish for!
Fantastic property with all the amenities needed for a family.
Not many properties we have stayed at truly cater for babies and young children. The Hayloft more than lived up to its claims...with everything we needed for our 1 year old, to an amazing outdoor space with play equipment and a summer house full of toys for our 4 year old...there simply weren’t enough hours in the day!
The Hayloft is in its own micro-climate, away from the hustle and bustle when needed, but close to all the tourist areas and beaches of southern Cornwall.
From the warm welcome by the owners (and the waiting Cornish cream tea), to the luxury of the accommodation, there is nothing more we could have asked for.
Perfect for families and little ones
Great modern and stylish ‘hayloft-style’ apartment with stunning views over the countryside and skylights for plenty of natural light. The apartment has everything you need, including tea, coffee and milk to get you going until you have time to visit a supermarket. Great for little ones - very safe with a travel cot, booster seat, toys and ride-ons in the garden. Location is a great base for day trips to various attractions - in four days we visited the Maritime Museum at Falmouth, Penzance, the lighthouse at Lizard Point and Kynance Cove (‘Poldark’s beach’), Helston and the steam railway, Poldark’s Mine, Godolphin House (walkable), Penrose and Porthleven. Nice little touches include flowers on the table, freshly baked scones and wine on arrival, which were gratefully consumed after a long journey. Kate was very prompt and friendly in her communications and lives in the house next door so is on-hand should you need anything. Thanks for a super stay.
Lovely peaceful location, charming accommodation and helpful hosts
A lovely, peaceful location with beautiful views from The Hayloft. Interior is charming with wood floors and furniture, clean and modern but lots of character. Crisp cotton bed linen and plenty of fluffy towels made a very comfortable stay. The children loved feeding the pig and chickens and we enjoyed the fresh eggs from the ducks for breakfast! Thank you Kate and Kevin for a perfect relaxing break.
A very warm welcome, with a cream tea and a bottle of wine to help us settle in. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very well appointed- nothing has been forgotten. The bed is blissfully comfortable and only the owls disturb the night. The view from the living room is of distant hills and a field of gambolling rabbits. Thank you Kate and Kevin for a great stay; it will not be our last.
