"This is wonderful and unique house for 2 (and a dog). The location in a delightful village is perfect. If you like walks this is a fabulous place to start from - all along the coast with great views, beaches and it is relatively unspoilt. The village pub and shop within 3 minutes walk provide all that you need."

"Lovely cottage, quirky and fun, very nicely furnished and decorated but also well equipped and comfortable. Beautiful countryside, quiet, very green, near the sea, with good walks and bike rides and not too far from the Camel Trail for flat cycling. We had a great time visiting Trelissick, Burncoose and Caerheys gardens. A quick trip to St Ives provided an interesting cultural experience. Perfect."

MARCH 2017

"Our second stay at this wonderful round house. All as we remembered and a few new items too! Looking forward to our next visit!"

"We enjoyed the collective salmagundi of art. The Round House East was wonderful. We would recommend a visit to Charlestown, Mevagissey and Portloe. The beaches at Pendower and Carne are ideal for dog walking. Hope to return in the future."


"Once again a lovely welcome at the Round House, our third visit. Blessed with spring weather and even storm Doris couldn't dampen our spirits... We've had such a delightful stay here at Round House East, a real home from home."


"My fourth time, hubby's fifth time at our special favourite cottage. This time for a last minute, short break to blow away the cobwebs in a November stay in Cornwall, or so we thought. Once again the weather has been totally amazing sunshine and a very mild 14 degrees was absolutely wonderful. Lazy mornings spent at Carne and Pendower beach at low tide where again Bertie had a blast... Returning home totally chilled, relaxed and with happy happy memories."

"Another lovely week here, our fourth visit. Thanks, as ever, to Ian for continuing to let out this lovely cottage and to Jono for his visit and keeping everything so clean and welcoming."


"The Round House, suggested by one of our daughters, more than lived up to our expectations. On a scale of 1-10 this was definitely 11!"


"Wonderful holiday, and many many happy memories."

"Another wonderful week in Veryan, discovering new coastal walks and breath-taking views. Grateful thanks to Ian and Jono."

"We simply can't imagine a nicer place to stay for a week's holiday. A beautiful cottage with every comfort (beds like this should be on prescription!) The decor definitely suits our eclectic tastes and inspired a few poems by consequence. Loved all the books too."

"Thank you so much for an excellent week in a beautiful and characterful cottage. A great mix of old and new, traditional and quirky - all the mod cons one could need."


"Lovely peaceful holiday, with everything we could possibly want."

JULY 2016

"How lovely to visit such a quirky yet homely place. This little house is just home from home. Our week has been delightful. This beautiful Round House with all mod cons and comfy furnishings has been a great base. The bed is super comfy and cosy and was perfect after walking and exploring all day... Thanks to Ian for sharing this beautiful house."

"We had a happy stay in a very comfortable house in a thriving village in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Could not have been better. The dogs loved it too!"

JUNE 2016

"Such a lovely, comfortable cottage with everything you could wish for. Charming village and beaches and great walks pretty much on your doorstep, not to mention the local pub and village store. Can thoroughly recommend."

MAY 2016

"The Round House was a very welcoming and comfortable place to stay, we did not want for anything. The welcome package was full of delicious local produce. Being able to bring our lovable old dog was great. We hope to return again soon."
