    Jane & Paul were fabulous hosts and made us and our dogs very welcome. There is a large enclosed garden which was great for our dogs. The private jacuzzi was an added bonus. The views from the cottage are magnificent and the online photos don’t do it justice. We would definitely recommend particularly if you have dogs.

    Hearing the livestock of the farm when there was nice & added to the tranquility of our staying here. We walked to the Eden project from here, which only took us 30 minutes. Never found the pub, but we were never bothered about that. However, everything you need is only a short 10 min drive from here.

  • "A lovely barn conversion with a stunning view."

    Clean and bright with attractive coastal pictures, good heating, appliances and furniture. We enjoyed coastal walks and the bus services in the area are excellent allowing you to walk between villages and catch the bus back. Looe to Polperro, Spit Beach to Fowey are very good and you can also walk from Spit Beach to Charlestown (small free car park near the rail line). Hot tub was an added bonus and was very clean. Welcome cream tea was appreciated and the owner received our grocery delivery as we arrived later than anticipated.

    A very clean and comfortable accommodation, fine for us as a couple but good for 4 guests. The hot tub really was a great bonus and we used on each of the 6 days, great after being out walking etc. Excellent location for Eden Project, 20 min walk, or the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Fowey or wider afield. Pleasant walks nearby including the Coastal Path and our hosts information helpful and borrowing maps and the weather was good.

    It was clean, warm, and furnished to a high standard. We enjoyed the convenience of being able to walk to the Eden project, and everywhere that we planned to visit was easily reached by car. With no facilities within walking distance, a car is essential to make the most of a stay here.

  • "We fell in love with the cottage, area and Cornwall."

    Leghorn is a five star cottage with fluffy white towels, white bed linen, peace and tranquillity. It is immaculately clean, we took our two small dogs and assumed they would smell other dogs, there was no doggie smell at all. The owner is on hand if needed but basically let’s you get on and enjoy your holiday. We had fresh eggs from the farm and wish we had bought more to bring home. Eggs delivered to our door! Each cottage has its own hot tub, ours was in the barn with a great sea view from the open stable door. We had the key to the barn which meant we pleased ourselves when we used it. We were entertained evenings by the goat and sheep, horses and cows. The Eden project is within walking distance though a lovely country walk which takes approx 20 minutes. Easy reach to the rest of Cornwall. I can not recommend this place enough, we will definitely be returning. Thank you Leghorn for the lovely memories we’ve made.

  • "We had an absolutely amazing time here at Leghorn."

    The cottage is stunning and decorated to a high standard. Everything you need is on hand to help you with your self catering stay from a dishwasher, microwave and oven down to a bottle opener. The double room and ensuite toilet/shower is down stairs and the twin room with ensuite/bath is upstairs. There is plenty of space for a family of four. The cream tea waiting for us on our arrival was a beautiful gesture. The owners were on hand to help us with any queries not that we had very many. The hot tub was a god send after a busy day visiting family and places. The cottage has some spectacular sea views and is central to many attractions. We had some very peaceful nights sleeps too in very comfortable beds. We will definitely be visiting this little gem very very soon. Also loved meeting the grumpy goat who visited every evening.

    The owners were very helpful and gave us tips on the surrounding area. We also enjoyed the hot tub which was not shared. Only we are allowed to use it. We also had the most incredible weather for the whole week. I’d recommend Caerys beach ( Porthluney) if you have a dog. It’s a lovely Lottie beach with a big car park and lovely food at the beach bar. We also loved the fish bbq in the evening.

    However , after giving the owner an opportunity to financially compensate us for the lack of facilities- and being offered £15- I decided to. Upon arrival at the cottage we were told that the hot tub would not be ready until the next evening. We were incredibly disappointed as it was only a 2 night stay and we had only booked this particular cottage owing to it having the hot tub. We had taken our children kayaking and had promised them an evening in the tub. In addition to this the hot tub is housed in a roofed, dark, musty stone outhouse .

About the location


Charlestown 2 miles; Carlyon Bay 3 miles; Mevagissey 6 miles; Fowey 8 miles.

The old market town of St Austell, just a mile or two from the south coast, is famous as the historic centre of the china clay mining industry. Today, its many beaches and its sub-tropical gardens provide plenty to see and do. The wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are perfect for a family day out, and a little further afield Caerhays Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Porthluny Cove. On the edge of town, St Austell Brewery offers tours of the Victorian brewing equipment and a chance to sample the local beer, and for those looking for surf and sand, St Austell Bay has several beaches to choose from - Porthpean, Carlyon Bay, Pentewan, Polkerris - the last offering a variety of water-sports. As well as a small shingle beach, Charlestown, a pretty, historic port, often has wooden sailing ships in the harbour, and is popular as a film location. A little further afield are Fowey and its beautiful estuary to the east and the fishing port of Mevagissey to the west. With lots to do and something to keep the whole family entertained, St Austell is a great year-round destination.
