Originally a cow shed and hay store, now renovated to provide home from home comfort, the Court is perfect for couples of all ages. It provides spacious, kitchen, dining and living space with a wood-burning stove, and a comfortable bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower room. Outside the Court provides private space with a modern Weber BBQ, table and chairs, and sun loungers – beyond this, we have over 3 acres of garden for you to explore, including the private fishing lake with a summerhouse and decking. Your holiday time is precious, talk to us and let us help you make the very most of it. Both cottages at Ashen Cross welcome dogs with well-behaved owners, there is an additional £20 charge per dog – please talk to us about this when you book. The Court is situated in the small hamlet of Ashen Cross just half a mile from the village of Pelynt (with convenience stores, post office, quirky tea rooms and a thriving village pub) and less than 2 miles from the stunning South Coast of Cornwall. The beautiful beach at Talland Bay and the quintessential fishing village of Polperro are just a 40 minute walk, with the bustling seaside town of Looe less than 3 miles away - making this the perfect location from which to explore and enjoy this ever popular part of Cornwall. The Monkey Sanctuary (7.5 miles), the thriving commercial seaport and designated area of outstanding beauty of Fowey (just over 7 miles using the Bodinnick ferry crossing), The Eden Project (18 miles), and a host of other activities and attractions are all within easy reach. But it is the semi-rural setting which makes this holiday destination extra special. As well as having secluded outdoor space, guests are able to relax and recharge in over 3 acres of land which includes two beautiful fresh water lakes. A strategically placed Summer House provides the perfect place to lose yourself in the wild and wonderful world of the natural inhabitants here. The large lake is well stocked with fish and when you stand on the decking by the summer house the carp, roach, trench and orf, along with our resident ducks Doris and Declan, will all come over to take a look at you. Guests angling for a catch will find the perfect spot to tickle their fisherman's tales - previous guests report they've had some of their best ever fishing days down here. Dogs with energetic owners will find plenty of space to run up on the field. The Court is one of only two holiday cottages on offer, enjoying complete privacy from each other and the adjacent Barn where the owners live. The cottages have been welcoming guests for over 15 years, and new owners Geoff and Tracy Tyrrell are keen to make the very most of what they have to offer; improvements are being made all the time - the welcome hamper which includes home-baked scones and bread, as well as locally sourced clotted cream, beer and cider, and a generous helping of milk, butter, jam, and other basics is winning everyone's seal of approval. Our guests also enjoy mid-week fresh towels. The Court is accessed via the property's private court-yard just a few steps up a slight incline from the car park. The property offers ground floor accommodation. Originally a cow shed and hay store, the property was converted in 1997 and offers spacious, open plan living, kitchen, dining space, and a large bedroom with an en-suite walk-in shower. The cottage is furnished to ensure home-from-home comfort, with a wood-burning stove, flat screen TV, and a generous selection of books, DVDs and games to help you relax and enjoy your stay. The kitchen has everything you would expect to find in a modern kitchen with additional luxuries like the Nespresso coffee machine and a dishwasher. The private garden is accessed by French doors leading out from the living area. A range of seating means you can always find a perfect spot to sit to soak up the day or night. We've added a new Weber BBQ and provide a pack of coals to get you all fired up. Whilst being fully respectful of your privacy, living on-site means we're always here if you need us.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Secluded and peaceful
Booked on recommendations from friends and were not disappointed. Welcomed like friends by Tracy. Lovely accommodation and welcome pack was delightful, fresh baked bread and scones, jam, clotted cream, butter, couple of bottles of local beer. Then a mid week treat of shortbread. Very peaceful location with access to summerhouse overlooking well stocked fish lake. Would definitely recommend snd look forward to returning.

Away from Hussle of Life
A lovely quaint courtyard, Tracey our host was ready to meet us, and I must say what a charming lady, so relaxed and helpful. The cottage was so cosy and clean everything we needed was there. We are not early risers and we are not disturbed by the adjoining cottage. Tracey made us some lovely bread, scones, jam, and cream, and there was even cider and beer left as a welcome package.Mid week Tracey cooked us some lovely choc chip cakes. We then ventured to the lovely lake, where the carp come to the surface, hoping we feed them, food was provided, and if you would like a little tiple there is a small bar with an honesty box. in the summer house. We with our busy lives wanted to escape, and we found that at The Court Ashen Cross. We would recommend this Ashen Cross and hope to re visit.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage (couldn't find it on this site).
Tracy and Geoff make you very welcome. Tracy even made a birthday cake for our sons 15th celebrations. Lovely, comfortable stay, everything you need. Home made bread and scones on arrival with lots of other treats, a delight after a long journey. We ate at the near by pub, had BBQ's, indian delivery take out, the premiere shop in the village is great. You must ty and visit the Bodmin Jail, grown up and kids will love it. I think the best indoor attraction in Cornwall. Looe is lovely, wonderfuly active harbour and fish market. Reef fishing provided dinner for 2 nights. Fun fishing to be had lake side at the cottages. Lovely set up, truly relaxing a wonderful family break. Thank you x

As close to prefect as you can get! Tracy is so welcoming and a fantastic host, nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the 2 bed cottage which was clean, well equipped and quiet. We even had some yummy homemade treats left for us on arrival which is such a thoughtful touch. 100% recommend.

Excellent location!
We stayed here for a few days and we were made very welcome! The barn was well equipped and very clean, Tracy made us very welcome! We loved sitting on the decking by the lake and summerhouse every early evening having a couple of drinks from the fridge in the summer house with a honesty box, such a lovely touch. Beautiful surroundings! We will be staying again!

Perfect, pet-friendly and so comfortable
This wonderful cottage, and more importantly its wonderful owners, is superlative. It is comfortable, extremely well-equipped and has the nicest shower in the world ever! The amazing homely touches that Tracey brings are so appreciated - freshly baked scones, dog treats, even clotted cream in the fridge! The location is perfect for South East Cornwall, close to stunning and quiet beaches, and easy distance to the Eden Project. It even has the prettiest little evening walk directly from the door for the dog. We couldn't fault this cottage. Thank you!

Fantastic cottage, wonderful host.
We have just returned from a week in Cornwall, and we feel blessed to have found this wonderful cottage. The whole cottage was spotlessly clean with a homemade welcome pack of scones ,bread + a couple of beers. And were warmly welcomed by Tracy and shown round the cottage. The living space is comfortable, a real home from home. The Kitchen seems very well equipped ( although must confess we ate out) great coffee machine, dishwasher, microwave and lots of utensils. This room has French doors which open onto a private courtyard ( with patio table and chairs and 2 sun loungers), which gets full sun in the morning. The king size bed is really comfy, with cotton bed linen, and ample storage to unpack into, (wardrobe, chest of drawers and 2 bedside cabinets). The shower is a bigger than usual tray size and good pressure from the shower unit. I really cannot find anything negative to say, the pond is just charming we fed the fish and ducks and sat and watched a pair of kingfishers, whilst having a cheeky beer form the summerhouse ( honesty box in there) The area where the cottage is, is within easy drive of some fantastic pubs and restaurants. ( booking advised in high season) And some lovely beaches to, and if you are not a confident lane driver the cottage’s drive is off of a 2 lane road. The Court was perfect for us, and we can’t wait to return ( we’ve made to more bookings already) Tracy and Geoff are the perfect hosts, This was our first stay it will be our base in For years to come I’m sure. Quite simply a wonderful place to stay.

Access

How to get there
Using a SatNav our postcode will take you to a local caravan park, it is better to come via East Taphouse on the A390 and then the B3359 to Pelynt or head for Looe. If you make your way to Looe cross the bridge that connects East and West Looe and follow this road [the A387 Polperro Road] westward rising up the hill out of town. Pass the turning to Trelaske and then turn right onto the B3359 signposted to Pelynt. About a mile along this road look out for a ‘bends in road’ sign, go round a sharp right hand bend, on the right you will see polytunnels in a field, our drive is then on the right. There is sign for ‘Ashen Cross Farm’ at the top of the drive. The Barn is located at the end of the drive. If you come from the A390 follow the signs for Looe and the B3359, you will drive through Pelynt, once through the village and beyond the 30mph limit don’t turn off to Trelay Caravan park [that’s where your satnav will want to go] keep on the B3359, look for a ‘bend in the road’ sign on your left and the ‘Ashen Cross Farm’ sign at the top of our driveway is just beyond the ‘bend in road’ sign, come down the drive and our house faces you at the bottom of the drive. Parking is at the bottom of the drive on your right. The Court is located up the sloping driveway adjacent to the house, The Owl is opposite the main house and is accessed via a flight of stone steps.
