It has often been said that Rosecraddoc Manor must be the nearest thing to paradise. The manor properties stand in 38 acres of beautiful grounds and woodlands, set around a lovely lake, stocked with carp, roach and bream. Rosecraddoc Manor features a variety of properties surrounding the historic Manor House to cater for all tastes whether classic, modern, cosy or cottage style is what you are looking for. The manor was built in the 1820s on the site of a much older house mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is Grade II listed, along with two bridges in the grounds, and has now been converted into these attractive apartments and cottages, making a perfect base for your Cornish holiday.
On site you can fish on the lake or play tennis on the all weather court . If you can bear to leave this beautiful spot, just 2½ miles away in Liskeard there is a superb leisure complex, where you can enjoy squash, badminton, gym, indoor bowls and indoor leisure pools, which include a children’s pool and flume, as well as the main pool.
Within 4 miles you can explore Bodmin Moor, where you can go riding, walking or even try water sports on Siblyback Lake - wind surfing, dinghy sailing and canoeing are available. To the south, lovely sandy beaches and pretty fishing harbours lie along the coast. Several excellent golf courses can also be found in the area; and the Eden Project is only 20 miles away.
The Manor and the Coach House have been tastefully and sympathetically restored to please the most discerning guest. The cottages are refs B6859, CV7102, CV7103, CV17, CV13 and CV44. Some of the cottages are suitable for guests with disabilities, and ref B6859 boasts an American fridge/freezer. Access to the front door of the manor is by 3 stone steps. The apartments are refs CV14, CV20, CV11 and B4866 which are all on the first floor and ref CV12 is a ground floor apartment. Whichever you choose you will find it immaculately clean, with freshly laundered linen and tea towels. Please bring your own towels. Cot linen is not supplied. Cornwall is well known for its mild climate, but at Rosecraddoc Manor, even if it is cold outside, your accommodation will be warm and welcoming. Jacuzzi and spa baths are available in some properties . There are several pubs locally. An ideal venue for all the family. Pub 1½ miles.
Really beautiful location. Lovely grounds.
An absolutely beautiful place to stay, Liam cottage was such a relaxing place, peace and quiet and tranquility. The fishing was brilliant too. The owners was very friendly, we will definitely be coming back soon.
We were really looking forward to our stay at Liam cottage, situated at Rosecraddoc Manor & would have loved to have given it a glowing review. It has to be said that the grounds at Rosecraddoc Manor are lovely and appear to be well maintained. The cottage itself also seemed lovely on the surface. However, inside it was noticeably cold, especially in the bedroom, even though the weather was mild. Once we had been there a couple of days, we noticed a horrible musty smell in the bedroom which seemed to permeate through the whole room. It was especially bad for some reason in the drawers next to the bed. There were no obvious signs of damp or mould on the walls in the bedroom so I can only surmise that the room is not heated and aired on a regular enough basis. Also the duvet is in very poor condition, in fact I have thrown better away! In the living room, there is damp on the wall under the small window next to the fireplace. The sofa definitely needs replacing with something that can actually be used comfortably! It was extremely low and very hard. You could feel the frame through the cushions. After two nights of trying to get comfy on it I gave up and used the chair instead as I was starting to get really bad backache. Some of the kitchen equipment also needs replacing. The kettle sounded as if it was about to explode every time it was used, there was only one tiny frying pan which isn’t much use when cooking breakfast, even for two people. The cups were also very small and the dinner set was hopelessly inadequate. The bowls were tiny and the plates were more like side plates than dinner plates. There were only two placemats provided so there was nothing to put hot side dishes on to protect the dining table. We had to use a folded tea towel and the coasters. The property description stated that towels were provided. Luckily, we took our own towels, as the provided towels amounted to one hand and one bath towel each for the week. We only went to the pub on one night. We had a nice meal and a couple of drinks & Steve seemed friendly enough. When we arrived there was a letter with the meter reading on it & information that the meter would be read again on the day of departure between 8.30 and 9.30. As we had a long distance to travel we made sure we were ready to leave by 8.30. We knew that Steve was around as my husband saw him at 7.30 when he went to put out the rubbish. In fact he was a little annoyed that he had wished Steve good morning as he passed with his dogs, but was totally blanked by him, something which we both find quite rude! We waited & waited until 10.00am & there was still no sign of anyone coming to read the meter. We’d calculated that we owed £7 for the electricity. We only had either a £20 note & some loose change, which came to about 60p less than we owed. At this point we left a note to say we couldn’t wait any longer and that we’d left the loose change & to contact us if they wanted us to settle the difference. As we were leaving, Steve passed us in his van and again, didn’t acknowledge us. Rosecraddoc Manor has some very good aspects to it & some of the points I have raised in this review may seem a little picky, but the issues with the accommodation need to be addressed if the owners want to advertise it as four star luxury, which in my opinion, it most certainly is not at the moment! Would I return? A definite no for all the above reasons.
The cottage was set in a lovely location and well equipped but had problem heating the living area on a cold day. would be great in hot weather
Our stay December, 2019
Absolutely amazing! We could move there yesterday!
