    The house was clean and equipped with everything you need.The wood burner was nice to have with plenty of logs supplied. The location is perfect to tour Cornwall and if you have a day in its quiet and relaxing with a nice garden to sit out in. There is a nice pub to walk to and lovely meals both lunchtime or evening however booking at evenings is required.Also a lovely beach a short walk away down a steep hill with some lovely views .This is a perfect place to stay and would love to go back.

  • "Must book any meals out, as most places shut at 3."

    00pm & open at 5.00pm this makes spontaneous trips out a little difficult! The cottage was so well insulated that when we visited (17/09/2021) it was so warm couldn't light the fire! They even put a pint of milk in the fridge for us.

  • "An absolutely delightful cottage."

    There were only two of us and it was big enough that we had plenty of space, but not so huge that we felt we were knocking about in a barn. Would comfortably have accommodated four people. Minor gripe - could have done with a few more plates, pans, utensils but that is very much counsel of perfection. Hosts could not have been more helpful without ever being intrusive. Lovely views from master bedroom. Wonderful shower and bath. The log burner an absolute standout plus! Easy to visit all manner of wonderful locations, even walking down to Finnygook Beach and Portwrinkle Harbour.

  • "Ideally located for the village shop, post office, pub, and stall."

    A short walk to the beach, there are also plenty of inland footpaths to explore the surrounding countryside. The cottage was warm and cosy in the deep midwinter and the owners were unfailingly helpful.

  • "Caer was excellently located for some exceptional walks."

    It is just by the coastal path and near areas of outstanding beauty. A woodburning heater provides additional heat. The owners provided everything we needed. The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and nice.

  • "We had a lovely week at Caer."

    The barn has been beautifully converted and furnished - it has a boutique hotel feel about it - whilst remaining cozy and inviting. The kitchen is well equipped with a fabulous Stoves cooker and Smeg fridge-freezer - nicer than my kitchen at home! Liz and Martin were great hosts - always happy to help out with local information (shopping delivery, cycle hire and local walks) and an endless supply of logs for the wood burner which we couldn't resist using every evening. There is a small community shop, open every morning, and a great foodie pub both within walking distance from the barn. The village of Crafthole is an ideal position from which to explore the South East of Cornwall - but we ventured up to the north coast too - very easily. We walked the coastal path on three days (can recommend the iwalkcornwall app) and cycled around the Mount Edgcumbe County Park - we were very lucky with the weather in October. All in all a lovely week - would thoroughly recommend.

The property

Overlooking far-reaching countryside views is this traditional stone cottage in a converted barn.

Caer is the perfect destination for a small group to explore the Cornish coast in a calming setting.

The property's front lawn offers a spacious and picturesque welcome, with lush green lawns and short pebble walls with panoramic views reaching all the way to the sea.

The inside of Caer is an absolute feast for the eyes, with every feature precisely contrasted between quirky decor and contemporary furnishings, whilst keeping the cottage's traditional character.

Find the stylish living room/diner, boasting original black beams found above a homely corner sofa, placed in front of the classic woodburning stove and Smart TV, and just behind is dining seating for four people to enjoy home-cooked meals in this incredibly restful and chic room.

Through an old beam archway is the contemporary kitchen, equipped with an impressive range cooker with a oven, grill, and 5-ring gas hob.

Upstairs is even more of a treat, both bedrooms benefit from sloped ceilings and beams, keeping to the original character, the spacious super-king-size room enjoys a delightful Juliette balcony with striking views of the River Tamar as well as a regal chandelier, and the twin room looks out onto the nearby village.

Experience ultimate relaxation in the family bathroom, fitted with a double walk-in shower, a vanity mirror, heated towel rail, and a fabulous bath integrated in with the tiled walling.

Dine alfresco in the charming outdoor courtyard, featuring exposed stone, lovely plants, and a snug seating area where you can spend an evening gazing at the stars with a bottle of wine.

This peaceful cottage overlooks the stunning countryside views on the edge of Crafthole, a historic village where you can stock up on your essentials at the village shop, and make sure to visit the Finnygook Inn, a wonderful pub and restaurant which offers scrumptious cakes, live music, and breath-taking views over the valley to the St. Germans River.

Portwrinkle lies just behind the village centre, home to two sandy beaches and a harbour along the popular Whitsand Bay, a true hidden gem where you can spend a day strolling along rock pools up to Rame Head or try your luck at riding the waves with fellow surfers.

Venture over to Looe, home to historic attractions including St Michael's Chapel Of Lamanna, the Old Guildhall Museum, as well as a fun day out at the Monkey Sanctuary, founded by the family of famous guitarist, John Williams.

Wander over to Seaton, a fabulous seaside town where you can explore the Seaton Valley Countryside Park, and the delightful sheltered beach.

Plymouth is a short journey away, a bustling location, filled with shops, bars, restaurants, museums, and lots of attractions.

About the location


Downderry 3.7 miles; Millbrook 4.6 miles; Looe 10.2 miles; Plymouth 17.9 miles

Nestled in southeast Cornwall's Rame Peninsula is the stunning village of Crafthole. This hidden gem can be found in the parish of Sheviock and boasts a country pub, shop, chapel, Post Office, and a village hall. Dating back to the 19th century, this sneaky village was well-known for smuggling rum, using the Portwrinkle harbour to offload the beverage and travelling up the long and steep hill back to Crafthole Methodist Chapel, where the rum would be stored underneath the building. Portwrinkle is a gorgeous coastal village, home to a Grade II listed building, Eglarooze Cliff, sandy beaches, and a large golf course. Also nearby havens worth visiting include the beautiful coastal villages of Millbrook, Downderry, the fun, seaside town of Looe and the thriving city of Plymouth. Antony is a nearby village, boasting popular gardens, museums, boat trips, and walking and cycling opportunities along the cliff tops. Crafthole is a tranquil spot for a quiet break away when exploring the Cornish coast.
