The sleepy village of St Keyne nestles in the main valley leading down to the coast at Looe. Renowned for its rolling meadows and wooded valleys, the region is a haven for nature and wildlife lovers. The nearby south coast is the area's main attraction, offering lovely sandy beaches and coastal walks, while the working fishing ports of Looe and Polperro are both within a short drive. With impressive country houses and gardens nearby, the delightful cathedral city of Truro just a short drive away and the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens within easy touring distance, this is an ideal location for a relaxing break in picturesque surroundings.

This was our second visit to The Retreat. We returned for the peaceful location and the cosy cottage, which was a perfect base to explore Cornwall. We hope to return in the not too distant future.

Very little traffic/tourists. Very peaceful. Pleasant and convenient location. Accommodation couldn't be faulted.
Mr Fowkes, Abingdon, February 2013
This is our third visit to this cottage. We like the fact that it is quiet and peaceful and gives us the relaxation that is well needed. The surrounding areas are great to walk the dogs with towns, woodlands and of course the fabulous beaches. We really like this cottage as the garden is safe and secure and I can let the dogs out to explore. So thank you to the owner for perfect, comfy, safe accommodation. We will be back.
