Hocking’s Green is found down a leafy lane in a wonderfully tranquil rural location, yet close to the beaches, The Eden Project and clifftop walks of the Cornish south coast. Tucked away from the bustle of everyday life, this beautifully presented barn conversion is somewhere to relax and unwind. Decorated and furnished with the utmost care, quality is evident everywhere. The open plan ground floor has a bespoke hand-built kitchen, chunky wooden dining furniture and comfortable seating set around a warming wood-burner. Upstairs, super-comfortable beds dressed with beautiful linens, drench-head showers and light-filled rooms with high apex ceilings are perfect backdrops to restful nights. Hocking’s Green is an immaculately converted semi-detached barn which borders a sheltered courtyard. With Pascoe’s Pippin (3963) next door and Gilliflower (4263) across the courtyard, this is a fabulous place for families and friends to holiday together. Each cottage has its own outdoor space and look out to the central courtyard, with the Owners’ lovely old farmhouse on the opposite side (although this is focused to the rear, away from the cottages). Guests are welcome to use a grassy picnic area in the beautifully landscaped grounds, a wonderful wildlife haven for woodland animals and abundant birdlife.
Decorated in Farrow & Ball colours, the hand-built kitchen in Hocking’s Green is just one thing that reflects the top quality of the cottage. There are also oak work surfaces, Dualit appliances, Jamie Oliver cutlery, Egyptian cotton bed linens and bespoke curtains and blinds, all making this a truly delightful holiday destination. Perfect for families or two couples sharing, the cottage is also available out of the main season at a low occupancy discount for two or less guests using just one bedroom. Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome and there are plenty of local woodland walks and coastal footpaths to explore with your four-footed friend. The cottages are named after Cornish cider apples and the surrounding area has plenty of farms selling scrumpy cider, with apple juice, honey and farmhouse ice cream often available. The countryside location belies the fact that the cottages are less than a mile from the A38, making this a great location for exploring far and wide. Beaches at Looe, Seaton and Downderry are just a ten minute drive away, with coastal footpaths offering spectacular views. There are shark fishing trips and shipwreck diving from Looe, and ancient smugglers’ haunts in picturesque Polperro. The pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand border Mount Edgcumbe Park, with a beautiful Tudor house, formal gardens and forest walks all waiting to be explored. A ferry sails from here across Plymouth Sound to Royal William Yard, a wonderfully regenerated area steeped in history. With the largest collection of Grade 1 Listed military buildings in Europe, it is now a premier lifestyle destination with restaurants, outdoor theatre productions and open-air cinema, arts and crafts markets and many artists-in-residence, offering something to delight all ages and tastes.
