Lying between Looe and Fowey, the spectacular National Trust coastline is a 10 minute walk from the garden down an exquisite, almost private valley.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had high expectations of Blanches but the reality was even better than we had anticipated. A rural idyll, with beautiful extensive grounds and lovely views of the sea in the distance. The house had everything we could possibly want. There were some really nice touches such as a cream tea on arrival, binoculars for bird spotting, plenty of toiletries in the bathrooms and a plentiful supply of logs for the wood burner. This is a property that is much loved and well cared for.
The 2 houses worked well for the 12 of us, 6 couples, with space in the larger house to accommodate all of us at mealtimes, and relaxing together in the living room. And care has been taken to accommodate the needs of any visiting children - there's a treehouse and a rope swing in the grounds - and so much space just to run and play. The grounds are totally enclosed, apart from the main drive entrance, so very safe.
It was a joy to walk straight from the property, with no need to resort to our cars...

Management response:

Many thanks for your kind review. It really is great when we find people who love the place as much as we do. We hope to welcome you many more times. Fowey is another great place for restaurants and it's fun to take the passenger ferry from Polruan. For beach action with small children we drive to the NT car... more

We loved the houses (adjacent), the huge and well planted garden, the peaceful rural setting and the view down to the sea. There is a very nice atmosphere here - hard to put your finger on but very definitely the case. With a large extended family, including six grandchildren aged 6 and under, everything worked perfectly and the feeling of the place was very relaxed. This may have something to do with the fact that the houses are geared up for children and obviously welcome them rather than tolerate them.

Just to pick out some of the delights - separate accommodation for aged grandparents (Blanches Meadow) and any others who didn't want to be woken at crack of dawn; large table for family meals and ditto outside tables; very well equipped kitchen; sandpit, in use within minutes of arrival, lots of outdoor games equipment which everyone made full use of; wonderful garden for children to run wild in; lovely coastal walks (3-year-old managed Llansallos beach back to the house...

Many thanks for the review. We're delighted you love Blanches as much as we do. Good news for 2012: Waitrose now delivers (as well as Tesco) - a great help when providing for the masses. There is an excellent fishmonger in Fore Street, Fowey as well as the one you found near the fish market in Looe... Lastly, we find... more
