  • "A lovely little place to stay."

    I loved the beds they are so comfortable, which is very important to me as I suffer with a lot of nerve damage and arthritis. Everything was as advertised, a very comfortable place, with all home comforts. I would definitely stay again without hesitation.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such positive feedback Barrie. Our resident Barn Owls, living in a special Barn Owl box with two cameras are a real hoot - (sorry could not resist) and have proved very popular with all our guests here at Cardwen Farm Holiday Cottages. So often we hear that families have played card games in the evening instead of watching normal TV as they can't bear to miss the owls! I do hope we get to welcome you back one day!

  • "This is a lovely little cottage, perfect location."

    Sadly we had to come home a day early, due to an operation cancellation. This was a little frustrating because we were having the most perfect time. Siobian was so so lovely as were our neighbours, The grounds were so lovely for our dogs who also had the best time. Everything was just a stones throw away. The chickens were also very polite, they popped over for a chat one evening. The owners are big animal lovers and were so accommodating. The only down fall was the allocated parking spot as I had to pick up my puppy from the grass area to pop her in the car,(she doesn't like travelling!) and due to the parking position I had to step on the mini slate wall to get to the car which wasn't cemented or stable and I fell with her in my arms hurting my knee quite badly,(so dont repeat my mistake) apart from that they couldn't do anything more to make this little bolt hole perfect.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed our welcoming environment for animals. Erin Cottage has ample parking adjacent to the cottage, and guest do not need to park next to the low dry stone wall if they do not wish. Our dry stone walls are in keeping with the grounds -and many further dry stone walls - of our Grade II listed property. However, we will address the area further in order to ensure the safety of future guests. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage, felt like home as soon as we arrived."

    Owners were really helpful and nothing to much trouble. Erin Cottage is delightful, but has everything you need. Grounds are kept beautifully maintained . Local shops are a couple of minutes in the car or a short walk and well stocked. Asda delivery is available here, we arranged for the morning after our arrival to save troubling the owners, no substitute which was great. We took our dog and I have to say he was welcome everywhere which was a welcomed suprise. Great places to eat, local fish and chips - Kelly's was great. For something special Talland bay hotel was amazing, fabulous views and free chicken for the dog was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend Cardwen Holiday Cottages, cottages to suit different holiday groups or needs or the fab farmhouse..all decorated beautifully, no dark and dinghy here.

    Enjoyed reading this great review Jacqui, thank you. This area is great for dogs - so many business owners are welcoming dogs and going that extra mile to look after pawesome friends. I will always put maximum effort into looking after our guests and its not a chore to look after the beautiful mature gardens here. I hope we see you again at Cardwen Farm Holiday Cottages.

About the location


Polperro 5 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a Heritage Centre that recently opened in the Old Sardine Factory with a climbing wall and a cafe and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
