Stocks Barn is an exquisite barn conversion tucked away in a country village landscape just four miles from the Cornish Riviera coastline. This attractive detached cottage is divinely presented and oozes comfort throughout - the perfect venue for relaxation after a day by the ocean.
The fishing resort of Looe, set in a steep sided green valley is a 10 minute drive away. East Looe has a harbour, restaurants, the sandiest beach and main shops separated by the bridge over Looe River to West Looe. Here, there's a more tranquil feel with pebbly Hannafore Beach and good views to idyllic Looe Island. Picnic, sail, swim or enjoy a ramble along the super scenic coast path to Polperro. This enigmatic spot is very picturesque with traditional inns framing the dinky quay. Visit the historic harbourside resort of Fowey - a much favoured destination. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Fowey hosts an annual regatta, the Daphne du Maurier event, St Catherines Castle, an aquarium, museum and lots more. Hire a kayak and paddle up the estuary, take a pleasure boat trip, board the ferry to characterful Polruan or simply sit at one of the waterside eateries under a blue sky. Closer to home, Stocks Barn is less than two miles from a good foodie pub and village store for provisions, and Liskeard is just over four miles away for a bigger selection of shops. Whitsand Bay with white cliffs, far reaching ocean vista and beach is reached within a 25 minute drive.
The accommodation at Stocks Barn makes a blissful bolthole for family, friends and couples. The open-plan sitting room makes a very inviting space, particularly in the cooler months with a hot chocolate by the wood burner. The dining table creates a spot for socialising and board games alongside the smart kitchen. The bedrooms are delightfully presented; the cabin beds are great for adults too! The sun-trap garden is enclosed; a pretty screened nook with country views for dining, and a safe haven for children and four-legged friends to play.
