Interaction with guestsTalland Bay lies between Looe and Polperro and is one of the most memorable and secluded coves along the coastline of South Cornwall. The quiet hamlet of Talland consists of a scattering of houses and cottages and an ancient church, away from the busy tourist areas to the north and west. The Bay community, set on a secluded hillside with direct access to the shore, is a haven of tranquillity, so rarely found in such an accessible location. It is a perfect location for walking, fishing and exploring the coast - or just relaxing and enjoying the views. The Beach It has three small beaches flanked by a rocky foreshore and a beautiful undeveloped coastline and is sheltered and safe for swimming.

A true home away from home, perfect for families of all ages
We had a fabulous week here, our first family holiday! The house is kitted out with everything you could ever need, come rain or shine. We spent a very happy day in the house due to bad weather and our 3 month had new and interesting toys he could play with that were found in the beautiful kids bedroom. The indoor swimming pool at the site was pristine and we enjoyed a paddle with our son. On the sunny days, the patio area is the perfect suntrap and got so warm you could enjoy the garden area fully even in October. It's very easy to walk down to the bay and a lovely cafe serves delicious scones. The kitchen at the house is amazing, the equipment is top quality and we had everything to bake a cake or make cookies. A real home away from home and we can't wait to come back here again when our son is a bit older so he can enjoy even more of the surrounding areas and the toys in the house!!

Amazing!
Wow! We stayed at no 5 and were thrilled to find a fresh, clean, warm and inviting atmosphere from the moment we walked through the front door! Not only is it exceptionally comfortable and well equipped, every attention to detail has been carefully thought out to offer a special stay for both adults and children alike. There is plenty to entertain the children. The site is surrounded by grassy areas where they can play while you watch from your terrace as well as a small wooded area which children could lose themselves in making dens. It is a quiet site, next to the coastal path that takes you to Polperro in one direction and Looe in the other and close to Talland Bay which boasts both a fabulous beach cafe and public toilets! Thank you to the owners for creating such a home from home atmosphere for us guests.

Highly recommended for a lovely break in a quiet resort and spacious, well equipped house.
Really impressed with this large and comfortable house with everything you'll need already there for an enjoyable, relaxing holiday. Huge kitchen with every piece of equipment (and more!) that you'll need. Super comfy beds and tastefully decorated with a seaside/nautical theme. Thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the extra large hot tub most evenings. Awesome views from the roof terrace and only a 2 minute walk to the coast to watch the sunset. Very child friendly and kitted out with lots of games, DVDs and books to enjoy. Nice and quiet location so minimal noise at night time. A great base for some scenic coastal walks - recommend the coastal walk to Polperro to soak up the quaint picturesque fishing village (and some tasty pasties!). We also went on a glass bottom boat trip from nearby Looe and saw some inquisitive seals up close. Also drove to the Eden Project which was only 35 mins away (recommend to use Tesco vouchers to get in if you have some spare) and a visit to the monkey sanctuary. Definitely spend an afternoon at the local Talland Bay beach which is a 5 min walk there (10 mins on way back up the v steep road!) Lovely sandy beach and sheltered cove which was perfect for swimming in the sea or can hire a kayak from the beach cafe (£14/hr) which was fun (life jacket provided). Lots of rock pools to search for sealife. Roads are v narrow in places (the Cornwall experience) but there are passing places so just go slow and be kind to other motorists (roads are pretty quiet to be fair!) All staff very friendly and helpful and do make time for the indoor pool and sauna too (and gym if you fancy it!). We were welcomed on arrival to the house with scones and jam/clotted cream which was a nice surprise (and tasty!). Mobile signal wasn't good but there is a landline in the house if you need to make urgent calls (and don't worry kids...WiFi is fine!).

Couldn't have asked for any thing more... Cornish heaven!
Beautiful house - fully equipped, modern, clean and comfortable. The owners have literally provided literally everything you could think of needing - from kitchen utensils to board games and even a football. Set within a quiet resort with a 'natural feel' and excellent facilities including indoor gym (which we actually used!) and decent sized pool with sauna. The outdoor plunge pool is landscaped as a natural pond. This type of resort perfectly suited our family of 5 with 3 teen / older 'children'. The private hot tub on the roof (reached by an external spiral staircase) was absolute heaven to use and well worth the extra cost as added a touch of luxury and extra relaxation. We were so comfortable inside the house we had to force ourselves out to explore... and we were glad that we did - stunning cliff top views and a beautiful walk down to Talland Bay where we hired kayak's for £10 per hour which was great fun, then enjoyed pannini's, cappucino's and cornish ice creams which we worked off walking back up the steep lane / cliff top steps back to The Bay Talland. We stoppped off to admire the beautiful local church and church yard on the way was really interesting. The Bay Talland is the perfect base - Looe is always a great place to visit, we wore ourselves out at Adrenalin Quarry in Liskeard and played Football Golf in St Austell amongst other things! We found the staff really friendly, relaxed and helpful. We would love to visit again!

Simply amazing property. So beautiful
Stayed here for a week in May and couldn't recommend it high enough. A beautiful location close to the sea and above Talland Bay. The house is immaculate with everything you could possibly need. So spacious and really comfortable beds. Pay that little bit more for the hot tub access on the roof. It is worth it. An added bonus is access to the swimming pool. So many great memories of being here, and the short walk to Polperro is another highlight.

Holiday away from home
My teenage daughter found this property on a google search and we are so pleased she did! The house had everything plus more than you would find at a holiday home. The complex is lovely with amazing views. It is peaceful. The weather was perfect which meant we could use the roof terrace most days. The hot tub was a chance to chill out after a day out. The coast path can easily be reached with lovely walks to both Looe and Polperro. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The indoor gym and swimming pool are an added bonus to use when you wish to stay on site for a day. We hope to return in the future.

Superb 5* accommodation in every way!
Spent a long weekend here with friends and it was more than we could have asked for. The place is lovely with a huge kitchen that comes as equipped as your own house! It is really clean and provides an open-planned yet cosy atmosphere. In the lounge there is lots of very comfortable seating including two extra-large sofas. The large hot tub was a huge bonus as it can comfortably fit 8 people. Being on the roof you feel tucked away and more private whilst having the opportunity to enjoy beautiful sunsets and clear starry nights. The location of the condo is ideal, just a couple of minutes walk and you reach the top of the cliffs above the sea, and you are just a 5/10 minute walk from Talland Bay. I couldn't fault it - the place is perfect and equipped for whatever type of weekend you're looking for! I'd highly recommend it.

Peaceful Haven
We spent a wonderful weekend in this fabulous house. The house is beautiful and has been tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. The kitchen was very well equipped and easily provided all our culinary needs. The highlight of the our weekend was the amazing hot tub on the roof, easily large enough for six adults. The Bay is is a short walk above Talland Bay. The staff are very helpful and pleasant.There is a small gym and pool in the clubhouse, kept as clean and pristine as the whole site.

Superb accomodation in a beautiful and peaceful setting
We stayed at House 5 in June 2017 for a week and loved it. The house is very, clean, comfortable and well equipped - just what we were after. The hot tub was a real bonus and definitely worth it. We had really good weather for the week and utilised the BBQ provided a couple of times! The complex itself is great too - in a wonderful, peaceful and quiet location, right onto the coast path with excellent walks to Looe and Polperro (even with an 18 month old on your back!). Great facilities too. In particular, the swimming pool which we used every day. I expect we will be back one day!

Luxury in a Cornish hideaway
I have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at House 5 with my family. Taking my 7 month old son on his first holiday I was expecting a stressful time taking everything he needs!! But at number 5 they have everything you could possibly require and (then some) The house is extremely well kept and in a perfect location on the site. The bedrooms are an excellent size and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The room terrace is lovely and the hot tub is a brilliant treat. However is extremely noisy at night time we did have to turn it off through the night. The staff at the bay talland were very helpful and kind and the clubhouse swimming pool was brilliant for those rainy days. All in all I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It caters for all ages and needs and was truly a wonderful base for our family holiday.
