Peaceful
Our second visit but first in Tamarisk and it was excellent. The cottage was warm, cozy, comfortable and had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and the welcome cream tea was delicious! It really is peaceful and should be marketed as a wellness retreat for tired minds and bodies. The walks around the lakes with our dog were wonderful in the early morning. The coast is a short drive away and there are lots of attractions nearby. The moors were spectacular and seeing the wild ponies was wonderful. Thank you. We had a fantastic week.

Always welcoming and relaxing.
East Rose is ideally located to explore Cornwall’s north and south coasts with everything in between. We have stayed in Tamarisk Cottage three times now and have always found it well equipped, clean and comfortable. The owners are lovely friendly and helpful without being intrusive; just the right balance. Additionally, it would be negligent of me not to mention Becky’s tasty treats, whether they be cakes or savoury treats, they are deliciously moreish. I am sure we shall visit again in the future.

Great place for a relaxing holiday
This is the third time we have stayed in Tamarisk and the sixth time we have been to East Rose. It is such a lovely tranquil place with great views of the moors. You relax as soon as you get out of the car. It is in easy reach of places to visit and makes a good base. It's great if you want to go out everyday but also so relaxing if you just chill on site or by the pond. Cottage very clean and owners very accommodating. Becky's cream tea on arrival is a lovely welcome. Can't wait to return.

Tamarisk
Thoroughly wound down from the moment we arrived. Walked in to find scones, cream and jam and milk in the fridge waiting for us. Accommodation was second to none, with views across the lakes and the moor. Extremely comfortable, owners on hand if needed but otherwise left to own devices. Very peaceful, perfect wind down, so we could go out for the day and come back to peace and quiet. Blisland village has a good shop and a wonderful pub with great beer and good food. We will definitely be returning again and again.

Peaceful, child-friendly, comfortable accommodation.
Fabulous location not too far away from anywhere but also secluded and peaceful. Lovely walks to be had in the local area. Great layout in the cottage and very comfortably furnished. Hosts were fantastic and baked us some delicious treats throughout our stay. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous cottage
Had another marvellous holiday here. We've been several times in 15 years and stayed in most of the cottages at different times! Always immaculate and the best stocked self catering accommodation I've ever stayed in. The owners and their family are a delight and nothing too much trouble AND they bake fresh scones and cakes! The views are gorgeous and of course bodmin is an excellent place to visit with great access to lots of activities. We always love our stays there and highly recommend! Well actually we don't.....I want lots of availability for when we want to stay!!!!!!

Beautiful and Peaceful
We absolutely loved our stay. The grounds were immaculately kept and the cottage was spotlessly clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The area is lovely and we always enjoyed coming back to the different landscape of the Bodmin moor after a day at the stunning Cornish coast. I would definitely recommend a stay and would love to visit again in future. We didn't want to leave!

Relaxing and comfortable
First time at Tamarisk but second time at East Rose. Very comfortable and great location for walking dogs. Close to the North Cornish coast and only circa an hour from some of our favourite places on the South Cornish coast. Good choice of pubs/restaurants within 20 minutes. We had a lovely time and will be back!

Another lovely break at East Rose
We have just returned from our 4th stay in Tamarisk Cottage. The cottage is roomy and comfortable with a beautiful view over the lakes. It's a very relaxing place to fish. It's a perfect central place to tour around Cornwall. We are booked in again for next year. Can't wait!

Wonderful holiday!
We recently stayed in Tamarisk cottage at East Rose cottages. The cottage has everything you need for the perfect holiday! Even a lovely cream tea for when you arrive! Everywhere is very clean and comfortable. The views outside are amazing and you can go fishing or just have a relaxing walk round the lakes admiring the wildlife whilst enjoying the peace and quiet. There is a lovely pub in the local village and a shop for all your essentials. The only traffic you come across are the cows, sheep and ponies that wander all over the Moors! It's just perfect! Also, there are lots of places to visit and some amazing beaches not far away from East cottages! We definitely plan to return, can't wait! Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Map
About the neighborhood
East Rose is perfectly located to explore the wonders of Bodmin Moor - on foot or cycle, or to explore all that Cornwall has to offer. We are only a 10 minute drive to the main A30 that runs through Cornwall. One of the closest towns to East Rose is Wadebridge. You will find several restaurants and pubs, and quaint shops. Local attraction include The Camel Trail - an off road cycle route running from Wenford Bridge (10 minute drive from East Rose) to Padstow, following the Camel Estuary, Camel Valley Vineyard, The Eden Project, Lanhydrock House, as well as the towns and villages of Padstow, Port Isaac, Rock, Newquay and Polzeath. Within 1.5 hours of East Rose, you can drive to Lands End, the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall.
Getting around
East Rose is located in a rural setting on Bodmin Moor. A car is essential to get around to see the sights. St Breward is the closest village, a leisurely 35 minute walk. The closest train station is Bodmin Parkway (located out of Bodmin town itself), and cars can be hired from Bodmin town. You can arrange for a taxi to collect you from the station to take to you the town centre. If you are feeling energetic, you can bring your bike and cycle around the moors (on the roads). This will be a great way to see the sights and nature of the moors at close hand. The Camel Trail (cycle route from Wenford Bridge to Padstow) is also only a few miles from East Rose, and definitely worth a visit.
Access
Car required
How to get there
Although in a very rural moorland location, all of Cornwall is very accessible from East Rose as we are only a short drive from the main A30 road that runs through the county. A car would be recommended for a holiday at East Rose. East Rose is located on Bodmin Moor, above the ancient Delphy Bridge between the villages of Blisland and St Breward. If you have a Sat Nav, it should bring you to us once you are off the A30. The post code is PL30 4NL. Latitude: 50’33’18.73'N. Longitude: 4’39'42.20'W **Please note that there have been recent road upgrades on the A30 between Temple and Bodmin, which have included the dualling of the road, and also the addition of three new over head bridges. You may find this confuses your sat nav slightly.** From Exeter / M5 / A30 From the M5 at Exeter, take the A30 for approximately 58 miles, until you get to the bottom of a slight rise in the road, and there is an exit for St Breward. This area is called Temple. Take this exit, and cross over the A30 on the new bridge (Temple Tor Bridge). You will have bypassed the towns of Okehampton and Launceston when on the A30. Bodmin town is approximately 5 miles from here, East Rose is approximately 3 miles from here. **(If you miss this first bridge, you can take the second or third bridge shortly after and get to East Rose via the village of Blisland). Continue on this moorland road. After approximately 1.5 miles you will pass Bradford Lodge on your left hand side. Follow this road around the bend to the left. The road will be quite narrow here, with large trees around you. Pass Moss Cottage (also on your left). The road will open up again to open moorland. You will pass a property on your right (North Kerrow). Continue down the hill. You will then get to a junction with a granite sign post with a right turn to St Breward and Camelford - take this (East Rose is only about 1 mile away). You will pass Penquite Kennels and Cattery on your left hand side. Go over the bridge at Delphy, East Rose is located just past the bridge on the right. From Plymouth / A38 / A30 From Plymouth, head towards Bodmin, travelling on the A38 for approximately 32 miles. You will pass the town of Liskeard. Once at Bodmin, you will need to join the A30 and head towards Launceston for approximately 5 miles. Pass two petrol stations/garages on your left, and go under two bridges. Take the exit just before the third bridge (Temple Tor Bridge), sign posted for St Breward. East Rose is approximately 3 miles from here. Continue on this moorland road. After approximately 1.5 miles you will pass Bradford Lodge on your left hand side. Follow this road around the bend to the left. The road will be quite narrow here, with large trees around you. Pass Moss Cottage (also on your left). The road will open up again to open moorland. You will pass a property on your right (North Kerrow). Continue down the hill.
