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.

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.
