The property

This traditional cottage nestles on the edge of a pretty village just 6 miles from the beach side town of Looe and 9 miles from the fishing village of Polperro. Surrounded by beautiful scenery the village is quiet, peaceful and just a short drive from the south coast where you can enjoy traditional villages, coves and beaches.

Built of Cornish stone Trevaylor boasts a wealth of traditional features including slate floors, oak beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace, exposed stone walls and pine doors. A modern bathroom, kitchen and a high standard of decor and furnishing throughout, complements the charming character which oozes from this property. Your stay at this delightful cottage will be a comfortable one, with thick walls to keep you cool in the summer and plenty of heating to keep you cosy in the early spring and autumn.

Peaceful walks from the village, fishing and horse riding can all be enjoyed locally, while in Duloe, One and a half miles away, a traditional pub serves an extensive food menu. Nearby Looe, Polperro and Fowey have picturesque fishing harbours, unique art and craft shops and eateries. Towards the moor Liskeard offers a sports centre, a swimming pool and a supermarket. Of course you may just want to laze around the sheltered garden in the sun and enjoy a barbecue. There is parking for one car.

About the location

LOOE

Liskeard 9 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a discovery centre, and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
