    “We were looking for a chance to ...”

    We were looking for a chance to recharge our batteries after a trying few months, and we found that The Retreat succeeded in doing that. The little cottage was extremely well and thoughtfully equipped and the hosts were on hand if we needed any advice, or just to wave a friendly greeting. It was all so well thought out.

    We were looking for a chance to recharge our batteries after a trying few months, and we found that The Retreat succeeded in doing that. The little cottage was extremely well and thoughtfully equipped and the hosts were on hand if we needed any advice, or just to wave a friendly greeting. It was all so well thought out. We could relax and enjoy the peace, only broken by birdsong. We were lucky with the weather and were able to sit out on the little patio area before or after a trip out. The fact that we were located beside the picturesque Looe Valley railway line was an added bonus. You truly could not hear the trains at other times but it was a delight to be able to travel to Looe for the day and then just step off the train and be home. We had our dog with us and she had her own little fenced area of the garden, as well as being able to walk the little country lanes surrounding the cottage with very rarely a car passing by. We loved our break at the Retreat.

The property

A charming, stone-built cottage, adjoining the owner’s original mill house, in the peaceful Cornish village of St Keyne, 3 miles from Liskeard.

The Retreat is cosy and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen, open plan living area and private patio, ideal for sitting out and relaxing.

Featured in the Daphne Du Maurier novel The King's General, the cottage is superbly located in the heart of the Cornish countryside.

Just a short walk away is St Keyne Wishing Well Halt, which is a request stop on the Looe Valley railway, meaning that there’s easy access to Looe and onto the mainline Liskeard for day trips to Penzance and St Ives.

With Polperro and Truro a short drive away, this superb area of Cornwall never fails to draw visitors year after year.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref 2470, together they sleep 4.

About the location

ST KEYNE

Liskeard 3 miles; Looe 5 miles.

The sleepy village of St Keyne nestles above the main valley leading down to the coast at Looe. Renowned for its rolling meadows and wooded valleys, the region is a haven for nature and wildlife lovers. The nearby south coast is the area's main attraction, offering lovely sandy beaches and coastal walks, while the working fishing ports of Looe, Fowey and Polperro are within a short drive. With impressive country houses and gardens nearby, the delightful cathedral city of Truro just a short drive away and the Eden Project, Heligan Gardens, the north coast resorts of Padstow and Port Isacc within driving distance, makes this is an ideal location for a relaxing break in picturesque surroundings.
