    “Whileaway Cottage is in a delightful spot with beautiful views.”

    Unfortunately we didn't see any of the famous sunsets as we had a very wet week there. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortably and tastefully furnished and equipped. Deb and Bob, the owners were very helpful, kind and welcoming. We can recommend the cottage for a quiet, peaceful holiday.

The property

Welcome to Whileaway Cottage, a single-storey barn conversion, set in picture perfect rolling countryside of the beautiful South East Cornwall.

This cottage enjoys a rural location while being just a short drive away from local amenities as well as having all the home comforts you will need to enjoy your Cornish Cottage self-catering holiday; ideal for couples or to simply enjoy all by yourself!

Whileaway Cottage is nestled between the bustling harbour town of Looe and the fishing village of Polperro with their quirky streets lined with quaint fisherman’s cottages; both have an abundance of shops, pubs, cafes and tearooms as well as some of the best restaurants Cornwall has to offer.

There are also beautiful beaches and stunning coves just waiting for you to discover and explore!

On arrival at the cottage you will be able to park up in your own designated off-road parking space.

Entering the property you will be greeted by a wonderful open-plan space with a fully-equipped kitchen with dining area, which leads through to the lounge with large picture windows and French doors looking out onto stunning countryside views.

The bedroom has a plush king-sized bed for you to snuggle down into as well as an en-suite shower room with contemporary finishing touches.

Outside the views lend the cottage a delightful sense of calm; where you can relax and “whileaway” the hours with a glass of wine after a day of exploring all that Cornwall has to offer, be it walking the coastal path with picturesque coastline, join this at Lansallos which is just 2 miles away and a National Trust car park.

Or spend a day in the ancient streets of Fowey best known as the home of Daphne du Maurier.

Fowey stands in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Beauty and is situated just a few miles down the road from the cottage via the Bodinnick Ferry.

If you fancy a day on the water look no further than Looe Adventure Fit SouthWest where you can explore Looe river in a kayak or on a paddle board; for those seeking leisurely strolls you can meander around beautiful gardens and historical stately homes such as Pencarrow a gorgeous Georgian House surrounded by a lake and picturesque woodland, Saltram House and gardens, and Antony House where Alice in Wonderland was filmed.

A little further afield is Trebah Gardens with its lush exotic gardens on the Helford River boasting its own little cove for you to explore.

Whileaway Cottage is the perfect little hideaway any time of year!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

The village is home to a local convenience shop as well as a SPAR, along with a pub, Jubilee Inn, providing all you need for your self-catered stay. Explore the exciting town of Looe, home to the beautiful East Looe Beach, popular for swimming, you can wander along the pier, take a stroll along the riverfront, and sample the tasty delicacies in the many restaurants and cafés scattered around, with some local history to be discovered at Old Guildhall Museum and Gaol. The idyllic village of Polperro offers a scenic day out, with the pretty Polperro Harbour and Polperro Harbour Heritage Museum showcasing the rich maritime heritage here, with the village also home to the quaint Polperro Model Village.
