The property

Blacksmith's Cottage is perfect for those seeking to escape to the mellow countryside and sandy beaches on the Cornish Riviera. Situated less than a 10 minute drive from the bustling fishing port and beaches of Looe and the old world charm of Polperro, this traditional Cornish stone cottage offers the chance to unwind in rural peace. Families, walkers and romantics flock to this private hamlet of twelve beautiful self-catering properties set within 3.5 acres of award winning landscaped gardens, close to the village of Pelynt with its 16th century pub restaurant and beer garden.

Blacksmith's Cottage is superbly crafted for families, to ensure that both parents and children have fun. Children love to feed the friendly miniature ponies, ducks, rabbits and Pygmy goats and there is a seasonal putting green; tennis court with practice wall; games room with pool table, darts and table tennis; outdoor play area and outdoor games including Swingball, Giant Jenga and Giant Plus4. It is also a firm favourite among pet owners with walks from the front door and local dog friendly pubs and beaches.

Inside tradition, comfort and practicality combine. The ground floor accommodation includes a newly refurbished kitchen dining room and a cosy sitting room equipped with an electric wood burner. Head upstairs to the master bedroom which has a strong romantic presence with an antique four poster bed, exposed stonework, rich fabrics and dreamy rural views. The second bedroom is furnished with three single beds to suit both adults and children and the bathroom is pristine and modern. Designed with outdoor living in mind, there is a small and enclosed garden for sunbathing and alfresco meals plus shared lawns for energetic children to roam.

This is an excellent platform for exploring Cornwall's fascinating south coast. Discover the secluded twin coves of Talland Bay, located midway between Looe and Polperro. For garden lovers, visit to the world famous Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the National Trust Lanhydrock country house, gardens and wooded estate. The exclusive waterside town of Fowey with its independent shops, galleries and waterfront restaurants and pubs is within a short drive and there are numerous opportunities nearby for golf, cycling, surfing, horse riding, sailing and kayaking.

About the location

No village

Chatsworth 1 mile; Bakewell 5 miles.

The pretty village of Baslow lies at the north end of stately Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The village has many unusual and picturesque features including a triple-arched river bridge guarded by a toll house whose doorway is only 3 1/2 feet high! Baslow offers a range of village amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants. Close by is Bakewell, the capital of the Peak District, and home of the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!), still made locally to an old and secret recipe. Bakewell is at the scenic heart of the Peak District, and with Alton Towers also within easy touring distance, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
