    Oh my goodness. What can I say about this place? Not a single complaint about it - everything has been thought about and all you need to do is roll up, unpack your bag and relax. Comfy sofa, comfy bed, wi-fi that actually works, television that gives a decent reception, ditto upstairs, a shower that actually showers properly, a very clean and beautiful property. We were able to pop out for our day trips and come in and chill - particularly if the weather turned, we could hunker down on the sofa with books and blankets. Most certainly would return. Peaceful and set in beautiful grounds, just perfect and what the doctor ordered. Excellent.

The property

East Taphouse 1 mile.

Ideally located for touring the south coast of Cornwall, this ultra-cosy yet spacious cottage is set within a small cluster of cottages near a farm, close to East Taphouse on the road to the famous fishing port of Looe.

Nightingale Cottage has been specifically designed for a couple wanting somewhere special for a romantic break away together.

On entering the cottage you will enjoy the character immediately, with quality furnishings and underfloor heating adding to the luxury that exudes throughout.

The ground floor is open plan, with a well-equipped kitchen, and cosy sitting and dining areas.

As you climb the stairs you reach a beautifully decorated and furnished bedroom, complete with king-size bed and woodburning stove.

The bathroom is en-suite, with a small corner bath for complete relaxation.

Outside is your own pretty English cottage garden with seating and a BBQ, perfect for alfresco dining.

The small town of Looe is approximately nine miles away, and centres around a harbour, and along the valley of the river which flows down to the sea and to a lovely sandy beach.

Idyllic Looe Island is a nature reserve which, depending on the time of year, is possible to walk right around and is well worth the short ferry trip.

Polperro, a famous quaint fishing village and harbour, is also a ‘must visit’ and is only four miles from Looe.

With major attractions such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan also within easy reach, Nightingale Cottage offers so much to do and see, as well as being a perfect romantic retreat at any time of the year.

About the location


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.
