Bay Tree Cottage is set in peaceful countryside just outside the little village of Pelynt and close to the picturesque fishing harbour and sandy beach at Looe. This beautifully presented single-storey cottage is detached and has a private sheltered front garden together with a patio-area in the orchard across the driveway, a lovely spot to relax in the evening sun.

Perfect for families, the open plan living-room has wooden floors and an L-shaped sofa facing the little wood-burner. This is a delightful base for exploring Cornwall's spectacular south coast with the historic smuggling village of Polperro just a couple of miles away and the sailing town of Fowey easily reached via the Bodinnick Ferry.

Inside Bay Tree Cottage open beams and contemporary decor in soft natural tones enhance the sense of light and space, and the open plan living-room means everyone can be together. Along the hall are the bathroom and two tastefully furnished bedrooms.

There is easy access to popular attractions like the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lanhydrock, all within a few miles, as are several lovely beaches and the winding trails of the coastal footpaths. Beaches at Looe, Talland Bay and 'secret' Lancellos Cove all await exploration and coastal footpaths offer spectacular views.

Cardwen Cottage (977) and Benson's Cottage (978) share this tranquil spot together with Cardwen Farmhouse (2861), a lovely old farmhouse set within beautifully landscaped grounds with lawns and a pond. Guests are welcome to explore the grounds, or just sit and relax in peace.
