This delightful property is just two miles from Looe, a popular historic port famous for its fishing tradition. Little-changed over the generations, Looe offers a mix of bistros, inns, restaurants, pubs and independent shops, or you could enjoy one of the many boat trips, which range from fishing expeditions to leisurely glass bottomed boat rides. Nearby is the picturesque Polperro, known for its colourful narrow streets. There is excellent access to the coastal paths so you can explore Cornwall’s dramatic landscapes by foot, or you could visit such local attractions as The Monkey Sanctuary, the Adrenalin Quarry, Go Karting, Porfell Wildlife Park, The Eden Project and the many National Trust Properties in the area.

On entering this charming single-floor stone barn conversion you will find the inviting and cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The original exposed beams are an eye-catching feature and help create a traditional ambience. The comfy lounge is complete with TV and DVD. The attractive kitchen area is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and washer/dryer. The dining area is ideally positioned between the kitchen and lounge, seating up to four guests. Heading further into the beautiful property you will find two spacious and comfortable bedrooms, one double and one twin. There is also a bathroom, featuring a shower over bath and a WC.

Outside of the property, guests can enjoy relaxing at their own seating area. There is also a large garden, shared with the other properties on the complex, to enjoy, complete with lawn, a pond, seating and glorious views out to sea and over to Looe. Off-road parking is available. 

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

great overall accommodation, sat nav stops a little short of the farm, but don't give up. Some of the country lanes a tad narrow. As a base we used our sat nav to get back all the time. After 5 days you can just about remember your way.The clean and cosy Forge cottage was comfortable with everything for self catering. Internet was fast and reliableRead more. For us the place was peaceful. You had to drive to everywhere. No local shops, so buy provisions when you can out and about. Hide

Wonderful accommodation in every respect. We stayed in the barn so might not be good for all as there are stairs. A baby cot and high chair was provided.
