A Beautiful Renovated Cob And Stone Cottage, In An Idyllic Cornish Village

Overview

Property

Updated: 12-Sep-2016
Cottage in Lerryn, Nr. Fowey, Cornwall, England - A Gorgeous Setting, With Fruit Trees In The Lawned Garden, And 'Secret Beaches' 20 Minutes Away

Sweet Briar cottage is a cosy hideaway, tucked into the side of the Lerryn Valley, its large garden boasting mature apple and cherry trees overlooking the tidal reaches and bubbling waters of the Lerryn river. Constructed about 150 years ago from cob and stone, it has been sympathetically restored in 2014 and now provides a warm and enveloping holiday home for our family. The cottage has 3 bedrooms and a shower room and toilet on each floor. The kitchen/diner is fitted with a bespoke hand built kitchen with all the mod cons and has views across fields and ancient woodland. The cosy living room boasts a large log burner for those wanting to curl up on a couch in front of a real fire.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage, renovated to a high standard, with pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay. Lerryn is gorgeous! Lovely river walks, cute village shop (bit pricey, as expected) and proper village pub. Nothing fancy, the opposite of pretentious, but serving a decent beer (so my husband tells me) and food OK. We visited Eden, Heligan, Lanhydrock (all thoroughly enjoyable) and also rated Fowey and Polkerris beach. We hope to return to this area in the future.

A stunning cottage in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed a fantastic week at Sweet Briar Cottage. It is a stunning cottage which has been restored to a very high standard. The cottage itself was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. We were really pleased with the location as the village of Lerryn was peaceful and idillyic whilst being only a short journey to some great restaurants, towns and the coast which made for plenty of great days out. Would highly recommend this property and we fully intend to stay again!

The perfect idyll

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful and restful cottage, beautifully and sympathetically restored in the land where you can throw your watch away. Lerryn feels well away from any tourist highway and close to the river with all of its walks through lush forests, yet village life still ebbs and flows through the pub, village green and store. Nicola, the owner, was really helpful from start to finish and nothing was any trouble she even tried to help us find another place close by for the second week. Quite simply we would return and have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. You will be so glad you booked it!

Stunning Cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful cottage; stylish, very clean and perfect for our family holiday. We felt very comfortable and relaxed in such excellent surroundings. Our daughter loved the garden area and our older son enjoyed tending to the log burner! Everything in the cottage was of excellent quality and the proximity to the shop and pub made life very easy for us! We highly recommend.

Thoughtfully equipped and tastefully presented cot

  • 5 of 5

Thoughtfully equipped and tastefully presented cottage in a quaint and very quiet village. Clean and tidy, well stocked cottage with a cosy lounge with wood burner. Situated close to the local pub and village shop which is very well stocked and friendly. Beautiful walks nearby along the river and through the woods towards Fowey. A most enjoyable and refreshing break in a fabulous cottage and beautiful village.

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

A truly picture postcard cottage in an idyllic village which has a tidal river and stepping stones. Renovated and furnished very tastefully to a high standard. Lots of good walks directly from the cottage and plenty to do in the area. A well stocked shop and pub only a 2 minutes walk away. The log burner kept us warm and cosy and there was a good supply of logs provided.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The riverbanks are a glance, or a 30 second walk away! Fowey, and it's stunning harbour is a 10 min drive, or a 3hr paddle.

A 15 minute drive will take you to two of Cornwalls best 'secret beaches' - guide book provided.

Talland Bay beach is a 20min drive, with its rock and tidal pools, new cafe and low tide sandy beach.

Looe, it's harbour and beach is 30 mins drive. Newquay, and northern Cornwall's beaches is 40 mins drive.

Travel:

Nearest airports are Newquay (45mins) and Exeter (1hr 20 mins). Bristol airport is 2 hrs away.

Buses do transit through the village, but the charm of Lerryn is that it's off the beaten track. For those wanting isolation and tranquility, almost everything you want is in the village and its surrounds.
