Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really loved our stay at North Mine Cottage. It is a lovely cottage in a very quiet village, down some very Cornish roads, with easy access to all the local attractions of Looe, Polperro, Fowey and The Eden Project.

The cottage was extremely well equipped with everything we needed and for added benefit included a washing machine, dish washer, a small freezer, games to play on wet days, even table tennis in an out-house and a table and chairs in a small garden.

The owners were very friendly and helpful and had kindly left a cream tea for our arrival - a nice touch.

There was lots of literature and information about where to go and shop and emergency numbers if needed.

The cottage was very clean and well kept. The bathroom is downstairs so a bit of an issue for those getting up in the night!

We had a great holiday. Thank you.

Wonderful 2 weeks!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect! Comfortable and well provisioned, with lots of helpful information about the area. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely surprise and very welcomed, thank you!

The owners could not have been any more helpful, even pointing us to the nearest vets when my dog had a particularly big tick (yuk!)...throughout our communications they have been helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a quiet location, but within easy access to the Eden Project, National Trust, and gorgeous coastal villages and beaches. The garden is huge and the children had enormous fun playing and exploring.

Thank you for having us

Lovely cottage, great location, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped- a real home from home. Ian and Vicki so friendly and helpful. Really well located close to lots of lovely places like Looe and Eden but in a quiet little village meaning you can relax on an evening. Cannot wait to go back!

Comfortable cottage in super location for dog walking

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is quite small with a downstairs bathroom. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful and a cream tea was waiting for us when we arrived.

The village of Herodsfoot is very quiet and charming with many lovely woodland walks nearby - perfect for dog walking.

We had a super holiday.

The nearby coastal town of Looe is situated 13 miles from the village. The historic twin towns of East and West Looe provide all you could ask of a holiday in Cornwall. Safe beaches, a wide choice of restaurants, excellent walking routes, fishing trips, diving, etc.

Nearby beaches include Talland Bay (9 miles by car) and dog friendly Lantic Bay (10 miles by car).

Newquay, Padstow and the Port Isaac (made famous by Doc Martin) are on the North Cornwall coast yet are only 40-45 minutes drive.


Use of a car is essential.

Herodsfoot is situated just over 4 miles from Liskeard Railway Station (with direct rail links to London, Birmingham and the North); 30 miles from Newquay Cornwall International Airport; and 67 miles from Exeter International Airport.


The nearest town is Liskeard which is a few minutes drive where an array of shops, banks and supermarkets are available. Plymouth is a 25 minute drive and can also be reached by train from the local station. There are many National Trust properties and historic places to visit in the local area including Lanhydrock House at nearby Bodmin (10 miles).

The Deerpark Forest is within walking distance of the cottage with its forest trails and on site café.

Further Details:

There are a range of restaurants within easy reach of the cottage. Lunch or dinner at the Plough Inn at Duloe will be one of the highlights of your holiday. This is a traditional Cornish pub that just happens to have an award-winning chef overseeing a delicious menu that will get your taste buds tingling. We recommend fish night on Thursdays with fresh catches of the day from Looe on the menu. Just a ten minutes drive through the lanes from the cottage. Also close by are the pubs and restaurants of Looe, The Jubilee Inn for Sunday lunch at Pelynt (6 miles) and Trewithen restaurant in Lostwithiel (10 miles).

The world famous Eden project, home to over 2 million plants, is just 18 miles away in St Austell.

For the more active, Adrenalin Quarry and Kart World are just 7 miles away at Menheniot. Adrenalin Quarry offers the opportunity to try coasteering, flying down the UK's wildest zip wire or swinging off a cliff on a giant swing.
