  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    Good location to get places. Really clean and well equipped. The host was friendly and on hand to answer questions etc. One of our high spots was to watch the nesting owls in the roof linked up to the television. Will be back.

    It was lovely to have you here Sally and we look forward to seeing you again. We have been spending more and more time ourselves watching the Owls recently as they are (as I write this) now sat on 5 eggs - we cant wait to watch them hatch! Property Owner

  • "Lily cottage has been set up and provided with the highest quality facilities, decor and equipment."

    The interior has been spared no expense and location and grounds provide the ideal environment for guests and pets alike. The owners were attentive and receptive and nothing was too much trouble. We hope to revisit next year.

    Well Thank you David for taking the time to leave us with this lovely feedback. We look forward to welcoming you next year. In that time we will be continuing to upgrade and improve the cottage including brand new sofas and carpeting. We always aim for the highest standards and enjoy seeing our guests arrive and leave with a smile! Property Owner

  • "This is a wonderful self catering cottage, we couldn't fault it, beautifully decorated, warm and comfortable and made even more enjoyable with the barn owls webcam which we watched continually."

    Thanks so much Siobhan for all the little finishing touches, so thoughtfully provided.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such positive feedback. We adore the Barn Owls and have been watching closely as we approach breeding season; baby owls soon we hope. Soon we will be live streaming them through our website. We always aim for that home from home feeling and I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves. We hope to see you again. Siobhan. Property Owner

    We had baby Owls in the roof and the camera that the owners had placed in the roof allowed to watch the Owls via the T.V. The location was so peaceful and yet close to all amenities. It was a really good place to stay.

    It was beautifully clean and well equipped. We were able to explore the local area easily which was stunning. The owl cam was an added bonus , we loved watching them every evening!

  • "We had a very good week thanks to our friendly and attentive hosts."

    We found their cottage very comfortable and well equipped however, we would like to raise a couple of small points as suggestions for further improvement: we feel a little more attention to the finer detail e.g. dust on all flat surfaces was apparent - probably due to the regular use of log burner; de-frosting of freezer & disposal of previous users food stuffs. There was certainly more than enough books and toys to entertain occupiers on a rainy day - even a resident owl for watching on the TV screen!

    Thank you for the kind comments. We are sorely disappointed to hear that you found a couple of things that were not up to the very high standard we set ourselves at Cardwen Farm. Preceding your stay we used a different cleaning company on a one off occasion and have passed on your comments - along with our own. We pride ourselves on providing spotless accommodation and regret placing this in the hands of someone different. This is the first time we have had this feedback. We are always more than happy for any guest to approach us on site if there are any issues. We will do our upmost to resolve anything immediately. We are also sorry to hear that you found unwelcome items in the freezer, this again has been passed to the housekeeping team at the time. We do however deliberately leave bags of ice in the freezer for the convenience of our guests. Owl TV has proven very popular with all our visitors and we hope to welcome you back again.

    Lily cottage was more spacious than we had thought and very well equipped, just great. Our dog received a welcome too and with outside space it was a very relaxing place. Live feed from an owl box onto the TV was mesmerising, We would definitely revisit and wish these new owners every success.

About the location


Liskeard 9 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.
