  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Shoemaker's Cottage."

    Although we had a few maintenance problems, they were dealt with quickly & efficiently & the contractor was very competent and pleasant. We were a party of six and the sleeping and dining arrangements were more than adequate, however, but for our foresight in bringing a camping chair, there would not have been enough seating. The garden is fully enclosed but the gate is waist height with inadequate fastenings which meant that we couldn't let the dogs out without leads due to the busy road. This could be easily rectified with the installation of a full sized gate. Nevertheless, we had a nice time. Pelynt was close to some lovely towns & beaches & has several grocery stores.

  • "The garden gate needs a secure lock, as we had to constantly watch the 3yr old didn't try to make an escape."

    Great location for Looe and Polperro. Not too far to travel to Newquay Zoo and Camel Creek Park. Lovely pub within 1 minute walk. Spar opposite the Cottage. Lovely stay would recommend.

  • "The house was generally clean and tidy , small things like the shower curtain was ginger on the bottom, the bath overflow is broken the toilet seat is not fitted properly and moves every time to use it ."

    The kitchen was ok lots of new glassware but not of the labels had been removed , there was no grill pan and the layout is not ideal. The lounge is a nice space but small things like curtains don’t match just two scatter cushions , the BT sport pack had not been connected but was rectified by the Monday , Upstairs the bedrooms are a good size but again annoying things like lampshades not fitting properly the curtains in the front bedroom didn’t have enough hooks on them and on several occasions the curtain rail detached itself from the curtains , The garden was uncared for weeds and grass growing through the stones and generally dirty not a pleasant place to sit . The location is perfect the village is lovely and shop and pub are ideal . With a little more thought and TLC the cottage could be so much better

  • "Nice cottage, great shop next door, nice area."

    Living area was cosy and cute. Kitchen is fine and had all we needed, although if you had 6 people it might be a bit difficult to cook a nice meal as it's quite small. Garden was quite big but as it's bare and next to the road we didn't spend much time there, but it's nice to have the option and a big table and chairs there. Overall the experience was good - I thought it was quite expensive for what it was but that's just because Cornwall is so popular. We couldn't find any recycling bins or instructions, that's my only complaint.

Stepping into the property, the open-plan living and dining room welcomes you into this characterful property, boasting an exposed stone wall, white beams, and a distinctive stone-built fireplace you can look forward to snuggling up in front of after a day of discovering your surroundings.

Sink into the plush sofa with your loved ones and flick on the TV while the woodburning stove creates a gentle warmth around you.

Moving through the property, the chef of the group can take advantage of the kitchen and its appliances, where you can whip up delicious meals throughout your stay using fresh local produce from this wonderful coast and country area.

When sleep calls, venture to the bedrooms to rest your head before another day of exploring the local area; the ground floor is home to a twin bedroom, complete with storage for your belongings.

Climb the stairs to the remaining two bedrooms, both home to double beds, a neutral décor and wooden chests of drawers fitting with the bright but traditional theme of the cottage.

Completing the interior of the property is a bathroom, fit with a bath you can soak your muscles in after an adventurous day out while indulging in a good book, as well as a shower over, a basin and WC.

Outside, there is a garden with a gravelled area where you four-legged friends can run and stretch while you savour a glass of wine in the last of the summer sun.

The village of Pelynt is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is home to the Jubilee Inn, a traditional inn offering meals and refreshments within walking distance from the cottage.

There are a wealth of attractions within easy reach such as the Polperro Model Village, resting less than four miles from the property; the model village is popular amongst tourists and well worth a visit one afternoon.

Brush up on your history while in Polperro by spending some time at the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing where you can discover the harbour’s fascinating history set inside an old pilchard factory.

Energetic members of the group will enjoy Pelynt and the St West Looe Valley, a circular walk through stunning woodland and greenery leading you to St Nonna's Well.
