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.

                                                          Lovely peaceful location, charming accommodation and helpful hosts

                                                          Juliette C.

                                                          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.


                                                          Jacqueline J.

                                                          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.

                                                          Fantastic family friendly accommodation in the heart of south West Cornwall

                                                          We absolute loved staying at the Hayloft. Everything a family needs! Fantastic location, everything completed to a high spec. Kate and Kevin were fantastic hosts and went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Highly recommended! Thanks guys!

                                                          Perfect base for exploring Cornwall

                                                          sarah r.

                                                          Myself, husband and two year old boy stayed here. The accommodation itself was ideal. Clean, modern and very well equipped. Plus it provides all the basic essentials such as hand soap etc.so it means you can relax from the moment you arrive. The outdoor space was beautiful and also provided lots of safe playing space for our little boy to run around and burn off energy.

                                                          Kevin and Kate were friendly with suggestions of things to do and how to maximise our time during our visit.

                                                          I can't recommend this accommodation enough.

                                                          The perfect family retreat

                                                          Rachael P.

                                                          We have just come home from one of our most memorable holidays. The hayloft is the perfect home from home, equipped with everything needed for a relaxing family holiday. The hayloft was very spacious, modern and beautifully clean. The owners Kevin and kate went out of their way to ensure we made the most of our week's stay, and even took our little girl over to the chickens' coop to search for eggs! We thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the peaceful surroundings of the hayloft ; watching the rabbits and pheasants playing in the vast garden below. It is situated in the perfect location for exploring southern Cornwall, we were blown away by the stunning beaches such as Kynance Cove and Sennen Cove, and had wonderful days out visiting the breathtaking Minnack Theatre, St Michael's Mount, and of course Roskillys ice cream farm. There is just so much to do down there and we will definitely be returning.

                                                          Great holiday

                                                          david b.

                                                          The Hayloft is a perfect base to explore Western Cornwall. We found the apartment had everything that we needed and more. We were travelling with 2 small children and the accomodation was perfect for them too. Kate and Kevin were very welcoming and helpful. Our daughter enjoyed helping feed the animals. We look forward to staying again.
