    “This is the cottage which sets the ...”
    This is the cottage which sets the standard for others to follow. On first entering the property we were met with a hospitality tray complete with chocolate tea and cake.

    This is the cottage which sets the standard for others to follow. On first entering the property we were met with a hospitality tray complete with chocolate tea and cake. The cottage is superbly equipped with everything you could think of. even down to bird seed for the bird table. It couldn't be faulted. The cottage itself is immaculate every room is pristine. There is a nice little area at the front where you can relax eat or just watch the birds at the feeder. It is set in a lovely lane a few miles inland om the coast. The nearest seaside places being Polperro, East and West Looe and Fowey. Bodmin moor is a short distance away. We had a lovely time, and travelled all over beautiful Cornwall, but a week was too short to go everywhere, so we have booked two weeks next year. Peter and Sheila have done their utmost to ensure a comfortable welcoming break and we have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. 10 out of 10.

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.
