    “We felt very disappointed with the accommodation at Cyder Cottage, the cottage was absolutely filthy!”

    It had clearly not been cleaned in a long time!! Cobwebs and spiders everywhere! Dead insects on the floor! There was no cleaning products at all to be found within the property! No hand soaps by the sinks ( especially with Covid!!) seating facilities outside ( the picnic bench!) was green and mouldy! Never been cleaned! Could do with a jet wash!! ...

    It had clearly not been cleaned in a long time!! Cobwebs and spiders everywhere! Dead insects on the floor! There was no cleaning products at all to be found within the property! No hand soaps by the sinks ( especially with Covid!!) seating facilities outside ( the picnic bench!) was green and mouldy! Never been cleaned! Could do with a jet wash!! Upstairs bedroom was unusable due to steepness of stairs for our 7 year old and the heat!! It was about 10 degrees hotter up there!! So he had to sleep on the floor next to our bed. Generally the place was tired and dirty! A low level of glasses and cups. Talking to all three guests that were also staying too said their accommodation was also shockingly dirty! Our neighbours in smugglers cottage even brought cleaning products whilst there! Also spoke to yourselves and Peter who arranged another deep clean!! But she said it was still awful! Luckily we had nice weather and the pool was amazing as were the grounds!! I feel for the other families now staying there

    We are sorry to hear of the cleanliness issues that you mention. I discussed these comments with the owner who was surprised to hear this, amongst other glowing feedback in the visitors book and the website. There is plenty of glassware and cups provided. Had you contacted the owners at the time, they would have been more than happy to sort out your issues quickly and efficiently as they had mentioned on arrival to you. The cottage is older and therefore prone to spider webs but extra attention to detail is taken to remove these at changeover as a result. Bars of soap are left in the cottage by the bathroom basins, along with other cleaning utensils. There is a window and a fan supplied for the upstairs bedroom. We have never had any complaints about that room, and it has been enjoyed by adults and children alike. There was an issue with the cleaning in one of the neighbouring properties, but this was put right to the satisfaction of the guests. We are however happy to hear you enjoyed and made the most of the pool, the weather, and the grounds. Property Owner

The property

Situated in the Looe Valley in the peaceful hamlet of Trewidland in the lovely grounds of Trehalvin is this delightful cottage.

Cider Cottage is an idyllic countryside retreat close to the exclusive waterside town of Looe (5miles), the charming fishing port of Polperro (9 miles) and Whitsand Bay (11 miles) and benefits from a shared 40ft outdoor heated swimming pool complete with a southerly facing patio and garden with a pond and water fountain. Approached along a leafy drive it inhabits a private corner on the grounds away from the Georgian country house occupied by the owner's and offers a private and enclosed patio and the shared use of a large meadow overlooking scenic countryside and woodlands that is suitable for ball games, exercising dogs and is equipped with a children's swing and picnic tables.

Ideally located for exploring the diverse coastline of the Cornish Riviera, the expansive surfing beaches at Whitsand Bay, Seaton and Downderry, the secluded sheltered cove at Lantic Bay and the scenic South West footpath are within a short drive.

Fowey is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and holds a special interest for visitors of all ages whilst the vibrant naval city of Plymouth, the awe inspiring gardens at the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the National Trust owned Lanhydrock, Cotehele and Antony House present opportunities to string together a varied and memorable holiday experience.

An idyllic rural retreat, Cider Cottage is an excellent choice for couples and the second bedroom set into the eaves is particularly loved by children.

Beautifully furnished, the rustic character and charm of this converted stone farm building is thoughtfully balanced with the comforts of modern living, providing plump settees, high quality mattresses, full central heating and a traditional wood burner.

There is ample parking.

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 Heritage Centre that recently opened in the Old Sardine Factory with a climbing wall and a cafe 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.

Note: steep stairs to twin bedroom. Children must be supervised.
Note: Limited headroom upstairs (4'7"/140cm)
Note: The heated swimming pool and adjoining garden and patio is shared between guests at Trehalvin and is open from May to September. Children must be supervised at all times.
