We had such a wonderful time at this lovely, spacious cottage. It is in a truly special location, so peaceful, in beautiful gardens and close to the sea, National Trust coastline and great walks. We very much appreciated the facilities in the cottage - a cook's well-equiped kitchen (rather than the usual, minimal one in holiday lets); the piano and...

Management response:

We stayed in the house for my parents 60th birthday! The house was beautiful very clean and well equipped from cooking accessories to children toys and family games! We have 3 children and they absolutely loved the trampoline, tree house and tree swing! You are able to access the fields behind the house very over a wooden step at the...

Thanks so much for your kind review which I've only just seen. Since your stay last summer we have added a big (adult sized) slide near the tree house and we've put in more steps and a proper style to make access to the valley and the beaches below easier.

Many thanks for your kind review. We're glad you had a good time and that the hot water was fixed without delay - we're lucky to have a good team on hand for emergencies. The summer school holidays are our most popular weeks. Out of season Cornwall is just as lovely and very good value for money. We offer couples-only...

About the neighbourhood
Fowey is a vibrant sailing town set around a beautiful estaury. Just across the Bodinnick Ferry you will find magical country lanes and beaches to explore. Most of the coastline between Fowey and Polperro is owned and protected by the National Trust. Lansallos is a dreamy hamlet set around a 14th Century church with a smugglers' track to the beach. Blanches is one of a small handful of private houses in the area with a view of the sea and its position at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley is second to none. We immediately fell in love with it and if you come you will see why! <BR>
