I'm Marie Tolhurst owner of Clays House.

Clays House is situated in the village of Roche where I grew up and attended the village primary school (a long time ago!) The house was a self build project in 2005 and my former home until myself and my Springer Spaniel Ruby moved to South Oxfordshire to live with my now husband Matt.

Since moving from Cornwall I appreciate it so much more when I return. Matt is also from Cornwall and we both love to be tourists when we come home. I enjoy sharing with guests our favourite places to visit.  

We want you to feel that Clays House is your home from home and a base for your own unique Cornish adventures!
