Six holiday cottages offering comfortable accommodation in a rural setting near Looe, Cornwall. The cottages are 17th century stone built barns and haylofts converted and well equipped and all standing in a courtyard in one of Cornwall's Area of Outstanding Natural Landscape.
We are adjacent to the SW Coastal Path which offers magnificent views of Whitsand Bay ( one of the new Marine Conservation Zones ) and the entrance to Looe Harbour. Just sit on the cliff and relax or have a barbeque in the evening.
Each cottage offers gas central heating, oven, fridge, microwave, iron and other equipment you would associate with a tourist board star rating.
