    “Lovely barn great location as close to beaches and attractions.”

    Initially we were concerned as the garden was not completely enclosed as described and our 2 small dogs were able to escape. This was eventually rectified by the owner after contacting him. Poor WiFi unable to accommodate multiple users so beware if you have teenagers also very little mobile signal. Downstairs bed in particular was uncomfortable and noisy kids complained about springs in their mattresses. Overall though thought the property and location was ideal for us. Showers were excellent ...

    Initially we were concerned as the garden was not completely enclosed as described and our 2 small dogs were able to escape. This was eventually rectified by the owner after contacting him. Poor WiFi unable to accommodate multiple users so beware if you have teenagers also very little mobile signal. Downstairs bed in particular was uncomfortable and noisy kids complained about springs in their mattresses. Overall though thought the property and location was ideal for us. Showers were excellent especially after a day at the beach, and we had all the comforts of home. Lots of information about things to do locally inside the property. It’s worth noting that this property is attached to other farm conversions and there are other people around as we thought this was more isolated. This was not a problem and there was a small communal swing system. Parking was easy take note of directions as property was initially tricky to locate. Definitely consider coming back.

The property

East Taphouse 2 miles.

This extremely spacious cottage is set on a small farm complex of barn conversions, close to the village of East Taphouse.

A wonderful cottage for relaxing both inside and outside in a peaceful location and is ideal for families and friends to get away from it all.

After driving down the private lane past the farm, you enter the cottage and you will immediately notice the airy feel whilst the children will be drawn to the full-size pool table in the sitting room, together with a woodburner, where you can gather if the weather is a bit cold.

There is a table in the large well-equipped kitchen for breakfast and also a dining table in the sitting room for more formal meals.

There are three comfortable bedrooms, a king-size double with en-suite facilities on the ground floor, together with a king-size double and a children’s bunk room with additional single bed on the first floor.

Outside this delightful cottage, you can enjoy dining alfresco on the superb enclosed private terrace, which is accessed from the sitting room.

Drive back up the lane and you are on the way to a choice of Looe or Polperro, both about the same distance away.

A day could easily be spent in each of these historic old fishing ports, but being so close by, a day trip combining the two is easily possible.

Both have their individual charm and both offer a wide choice of excellent pubs, restaurants and take-away food.

With easy access to many other leading tourist attractions in Cornwall, combined with such ideal family accommodation, a stay at this lovely cottage will be a delight at any time of year.

About the location

EAST TAPHOUSE

Liskeard 5 miles; Polperro 9 miles; Looe 9 miles.

The small village of East Taphouse is located on the A390 in the heart of the beautiful Cornish countryside, perfectly situated for exploring all that Cornwall and Devon have to offer. Located between the historic market towns of Liskeard to the east and the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel to the west, there is also easy access to the picturesque old fishing ports of Looe, Polperro and Fowey and many spectacular sandy beaches and coves on the South Coast, whilst the rugged and dramatic Bodmin Moor is just 10 minutes to the north. Close by is the Eden Project along with the magnificent Lost Gardens of Heligan and many National Trust properties such as Lanhydrock and Cothele. Bodmin steam railway and the tall ship harbour at Charlestown are also nearby and well worth a visit. Further afield, Plymouth is only a 30-minute drive away as is the windswept northern coastline, with Padstow, Newquay, Tintagel and anywhere from Dartmoor to Land's End all accessible for an enjoyable day out.
