    • “Fabulous little cottage up in the hillside. Owner was lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Great place to chill out in or if you're a walker plenty to do. Looe only 10 minutes away .All in all a well furnished cottage with a fantastic open fire. We couldn't recommend it more. We will be back.”

    Mr Duncan, Warrington, January 2019

    • “The cottage is in a lovely setting of fields and hills with plenty of wildlife and walks in the area. Each year we always look forward to our stay at Hobb cottage, we receive a warm welcome. The owners are really friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. It's definitely our favourite place to stay. Thank you.”

    Ms Woollas, RAMSGATE, September 2018

    • “Lovely warm welcome on arrival from Annabelle, the owner. Tea, coffee and milk left so that you could enjoy a refreshing drink after long journey. This cottage was wonderful, home from home. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Annabelle has given a lot of thought when preparing the cottage. Tranquil setting with spectacular views. Perfect for long walks and nature watching. We had a perfect holiday at this exceptional property. Hope to visit again. Thank you”

    Mrs Broad, Rotherham, August 2018

    • “The owner had thought about everything that you would need in the cottage. She was welcoming and friendly offering eggs if we needed them. It was also good to know that we could recycle all the plastic, glass and food packaging. It was very quiet and relaxing. Lovely views.”

    Mrs Pearson, Atherstone, August 2018

    • “The location not only for Tranquillity Piece & Quiet but you don't have to travel far to see Picturesque Towns/Villages & Beaches. PERFECT”

    Mr Gill, Cheltenham, July 2018

    • “We had a great holiday at Hobb cottage. The place is so peaceful we would have been happy just sat in the garden all day relaxing. Just 10 minutes drive from Looe, a beautiful harbor with lots of shops and a beautiful beech. Annabel was a great host who was very helpful when we needed her. We would definitely come again.”

    Mr Farnsworth, Bury, July 2018

    • “Off the beaten track this was the perfect get away from it all break. The instructions received from Helpful holidays were as stated. The owners provided milk so we could have a drink before unpacking (really appreciated after a 7 hour drive). Everything we needed was provided from kitchen equipment, linens, TV, music & film CDs, local information packs, comfortable lounge and bed. Upstairs and downstairs toilets was a real plus! Mobile phone coverage was a bit iffy but this was not a real problem as there is internet access. We were made really welcome by Annabel James the owner who also provided us with further knowledge about the local area. A word of warning however - the local roads are not for the timid driver!!”

The Property

2 miles from Pelynt and 3½ miles from Looe, tucked down hedgerow lanes and a long private drive, two pretty, detached stone cottages on the side of a deep valley (panoramic views) full of wildlife and flowers. Only birds and bees disturb the peace. Steep, grassy slope and steps to woods and river; good river valley and woodland walks from the cottages. Family donkeys and dogs are friendly and happy to accompany you over the owners’ 54 acres (sheep, lambs in spring) which encompass St Nun’s holy well; its waters are reputed to cure insanity and visitors are supposed to leave a gift of a ‘pin’, in this context a pin of ale for the farmer! You are welcome to collect eggs (when available) and groom the donkeys. Spring water. A wonderfully tranquil escape, free from traffic noise and light pollution (star-gazing). Good walk to pub at Duloe.Hobb Cottage: to the front, a low granite wall topped with quartz encircles a pretty flower-filled suntrap garden (table/chairs). Entrance to hall. Living/dining room with high beamed ceiling, TV/DVD, open fire (logs/coal included) and lovely valley views. Neat kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker). Loo. Stairs down to double bedroom and shower-room (suite). No children. A great place to unwind.

Pelynt: village (pub, several shops) 3 miles from Polperro (pretty fishing village) and Looe. ‘And shall Trelawney die, here’s twenty thousand Cornishmen will know the reason why’. This is where he was born and - some 300 years ago - did die.
