Wind your way along country lanes to this truly delightful retreat that is just the tonic for those looking to enjoy precious time together and escape the humdrum of everyday life. Carefully designed for two, this super little cottage named after the parish in which it is located, is beautifully decorated and furnished throughout, ensuring that you completely relax in no time at all.
From holiday breakfasts on the terrace to an evening stroll along the owners' woodland walk, you are sure to make the most of this tranquil setting and the great outdoors. Set between the owners' home and Winwalloe Cottage (3774) this is a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside and beautiful coastline of this relatively unknown part of Cornwall. With miles of coastal footpaths and an abundance of fishing villages and towns, great beaches, open moorland and so much more all within easy access, why would you choose to stay anywhere else?
Step inside and you will be delighted – there's an open plan living-room with exposed beams, a comfy sofa to snuggle up on, contemporary very well-equipped kitchen and lovely artwork on the walls. Upstairs the romantic bedroom has a gorgeous king-size bed adorned with beautiful bed linen and of course piles of soft cushions and a stylish en suite shower-room ready to freshen you up for the day ahead. And just what will that day bring…
Take a trip to the fishing resort of Looe where you can wander the pretty streets and enjoy fish and chips with your feet dangling over the harbour wall, or perhaps join a fishing trip and cook up your very own catch later that day. The coastal walk from Looe to charming Polperro offers stunning scenery around every corner and the chance to enjoy some Cornish hospitality in one of the local pubs or cafes.
From Bodinnick or Polruan take the ferry across to the trendy waterside town of Fowey, home of the annual regatta and festival. A little further south the historic port of Charlestown beckons – famous for the collection of Tall Ships and most importantly a location for the recent hit TV series Poldark – who knows if you time it right, you might get a glimpse of the man himself!
For some great houses and gardens then Lanhydrock, Port Eliot and Mount Edgcumbe will certainly fit the bill and you can enjoy live entertainment at the Rum Store at Carnglaze Caverns and the 'open air' moorland theatre at Sterts (seasonal).
Pinnock offers the reassurance of friendly owners next door, should you have any questions during your stay, but assurance of privacy if you just want to relax. The family's two friendly dogs will come to say hello when you arrive, offering the warmest of welcomes!
