    “Samuel's Cottage is in a lovely village where the people are so friendly and the Community shop and Post Office has a good selection of products to buy.”

    The Cottage is well equipped (especially the Kitchen) the beds are so comfy & the on-suite shower is amazing. The roll top bath is large and very comfy for a long soak after a busy day. The location is good for discovering Cornwall and The garden is large and well fenced in so the Dogs are safe. There is a good selection of games provided and the snooker table was well used by us all. The only negative things to mention are the pebbles leading up the path are quite raised and are difficult ...

    The Cottage is well equipped (especially the Kitchen) the beds are so comfy & the on-suite shower is amazing. The roll top bath is large and very comfy for a long soak after a busy day. The location is good for discovering Cornwall and The garden is large and well fenced in so the Dogs are safe. There is a good selection of games provided and the snooker table was well used by us all. The only negative things to mention are the pebbles leading up the path are quite raised and are difficult for anyone with mobility issues. The heating is on a boiler which I could not understand how to switch it on/off and didn't know how to set the timer, it would be helpful for future guests if they had instructions on how to use it correctly. The booklet left with helpful advice is quite out of date and needs to be improved to include local shops & Farm Shops, activities and maybe a bus timetable. A list of dog friendly beaches would also help. Overall, we had an amazing time celebrating my Husband's surprise 70th Birthday and the cottage is ideal for a relaxed holiday. Highly recommended.

About the location

LANREATH

Pelynt 2 miles; Looe 5 miles; Polperro 6 miles.

Lanreath is a village in southeast Cornwall, five miles west of Looe. Lanreath is rural in character with a local shop and Post Office as well as a parish church. There are a number of ghost stories associated with Lanreath. The best-known features a ghost in black driving a coach pulled by a headless horse. Nearby Pelynt is home to a parish church, a number of local shops and pubs, especially the Jubilee Inn, which was an original farmhouse dating back to the 16th Century. Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. Polperro is a little further away and is a historic fishing village nestling at the head of a long valley leading down to the sea. With plenty of areas to visit, Lanreath is a quiet, pleasant place offering easy access to the coast, the moors, National Trust properties and Cornwall's famous gardens.

Note: Garage (by arrangement) and additional off-road parking opposite cottage
