About the Owner
I have lived here since I was 11 and have farmed the land giving up dairy cows 9 years ago and now I have South Devon Cattle & two flocks of sheep. My family have grown up here and love the area.

Typical quaint country cottage
We arrived at the cottage after dark, was quite an experience driving down the extremely narrow lane but so worth the wonderful views that we awoke to the next morning. Fields of sheep and cows and rolling hills were our neighbors. The cottage itself was really sweet and lovely and warm (we were here in October), we found the beds very comfortable, 3 in one room and 2 singles in the other with plenty of space. The bathroom was o.k but I missed a shower and the mixer hose didn't work well with the taps, either boiling hot or cold! Also I found the kitchen equipment fairly basic but we managed. The cottage was well placed for visiting Looe and Polperro, fish and chips from Daves Diner in Looe a must-fresh caught haddock was most excellent. Overall we loved our stay here and would definitely consider returning if we holiday in this part of Cornwall again.
For a holiday we like all the comforts of home but with a difference. The cottage lived up to all that we could have wished for. The ceilings were low in places only a problem for a 6foot son in law and the stairs were qwerky but I only slipped once. The location was remote and quiet - phone signals and internet mostly a no go but that means you are truly on holiday. We all had a fantastic week especially 18month old grand daughter who insisted on viewing the sheep through the window whenever we were in the kitchen and short walks to the field to get a close up view of sheep and cows. The cottage was everything we could have hoped for and more and we would highly recommend it for like minded people.
Just had a fantastic week at this cottage. Perfect for a great value family holiday. The lanes are narrow to and from (just like many Cornish roads) so go slow. It was the hottest week of the year but the cottage remained lovely and cool. Owners opened the gate to the field for us to walk our dog, and this also allowed us to have some fun with the kids (rounders and football). Very small criticism, few more utensils needed for cooking. Headroom was an issue for husband at 6ft 1 but that isn't the cottages fault! Easy drive to Looe for the beach and Pelynt has a big Spa shop for necessities. I'd recommend this cottage for those with children (stairs are a bit twisty but easy to get used to) or couples that want a peaceful break. Very quiet area, cows and sheep in the fields, not a lot for teens so they'll have to read a book or watch a dvd! I'd certainly go back, perfect for our family, plenty of space for the kids (ours are 11 and 14) inside and out. If you don't want to cook breakfast, drive to The Tavern in Liskeard, all you can eat breakfast £8 adults, kids free.Jubilee Inn in Pelynt is fine for an evening meal but if you want value and lovely food The Coffee Shop (yellow sign) Italian cafe in Looe is great, her waffles are Devine.
