Description

Blanches Cottage (Sleeps 5. 3 Bedrooms)

Blanches Cottage is the original character cottage adjoining Blanches House.

Downstairs the accommodation consists of a 24’ drawing room with a piano, a large log fire and a traditional bread oven.

There is also a cottage-style kitchen and a single bedroom.

There are two double bedrooms upstairs.

You can sit in bed or relax in the bath and gaze down the beautiful valley to the sea and watch the ships going up and down the channel.

The house is centrally heated.

There is wireless broadband and delicious water from our private spring. Outside there is a sitting-out area overlooking the valley and sea, several terraced lawns and lots of secret garden areas to explore.

About Katherine

My wife and I live in London. We have three boys aged 11, 8 and 3. We get down to Cornwall whenever we can and spend most of our holidays there. As soon as we arrive at Blanches the boys rush off into the gardens to play in the tree house or bounce on the trampoline.

Katherine purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Katherine chose South East Cornwall

We rented a holiday house in Fowey for six years before finding Blanches. We love the area and often found ourselves crossing the Boddinick Ferry to explore the quiet lanes and beaches to the East of the Fowey River.

Most of the coastline between Fowey and Looe is owned and protected by the National Trust. Blanches is one of a small handful of private houses in the area with a view of the sea and its position at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley is truly second to none. We immediately fell in love with it and if you come you will see why!

What makes this cottage unique

The properties are fully furnished and equipped as spacious and comfortable private homes. They are large enough for big groups but have a cosy feel about them.

The gardens are a mini Heligan with graceful lawns, a valley garden and sea views. It's a magical place surrounded by nature. The children love to watch about twenty species of birds visit the well-stocked feeders next to the house. The walk down the valley or along the ridge is breath-taking with Lansallos Cove close by.

There is a wide range of activities on offer a short distance away: walking, swimming, sailing, people watching or eating in good restaurants. On a rainy day we make use of the free use of the swimming pool at the Fowey Hall Hotel or head to the world famous Eden Project, a half hour drive away.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. We're glad to hear you had a good time. The walk down the valley is spectacular but the coast line at the bottom is rocky. We get to the beach down the track next to Lansallos church. It's a fairly easy twenty minutes, ten if you park in the NT car park. The closest beach to drive to is Talland Bay, just the other side of Polperro: pink rocks and nice sand at low tide plus a good cafe. Kind regards. PS - We know what you mean about the sign and we're getting a larger one made.
