    • “Great holiday in a lovely well equipped and comfortable house. David was very helpful both before and during holiday - bringing out a new cot bed for us late on the Saturday evening. Lanreath is a fairly small village but with a shop that stocks everything and whilst there is no longer a pub there is a social club within walking distance which everyone is welcome to attend. Lanreath is also ideally situated to visit many great places within a short distance. Great holiday, would recommend.”

    Mrs Windebank, Shipston-on-Stour, October 2018

    • “Samuels cottage was fantastic the gardens were brilliant for our dogs well maintained and ideal to allow our dogs to roam the cottage was very cosy and well stocked with equipment ie games books and a vast array of DVD the location was brilliant "far from the Madening crowd" we shall definetly be returning . Your staff were very easy to deal with whenever we phoned always polite and helpful. One problem why penalise people who do not want to put their personal on the Webb by charging them extra”

    Mr Gower, Chatham, October 2018

    • “Samuel's Cottage proved to be a perfect location for exploring all that is good about the south east of Cornwall. The cottage was immaculate and extremely well equipped for our party of 4 adults and 3 dogs. Upstairs is particularly comfortable and the beds were excellent for providing a good night's sleep. David was generous enough to leave us a cake in the kitchen to enjoy for lunch and was extremely helpful in the days leading up to our holiday. Looe is such a beautiful place and only 6 odd miles from Lanreath, with great pubs and restaurants. We really loved the quality of the beer/food, atmosphere and service at the Olde Salutation Inn and the Old Sail Loft Restaurant.' The place had a real friendly feel about it and the view of the small boats at high tide from the bridge separating East and West Looe was stunning. Polperro was a little "twee" for the dogs but a lovely place all the same. If you don't mind climbing down (and back up) to a wonderful beach then Lantic Bay gives you the very best that Cornwall has to offer, with a beautiful beach and crystal clear waters. Our favourite spot to take the dogs for a run on the beach was at 'Whitsands Bay' to the East of Looe, with it's 4 miles of wide and spacious sandy beach (though a short climb down from Tregantle is required). Pelynt was handy and just 2 miles from the cottage and had good pubs/social clubs and a couple of supermarkets. The very generous Sunday roast at the Jubilee Inn was too much for me but lovely. Staff near enough everywhere were extremely friendly (if I ignore the barman at Smugglers' Inn in Seaton!! If you like the idea of travelling slightly further afield then Charlestown is a lovely spot with a great harbour, shingle beach, picturesque cottages and a good selection of cosy drinking establishments. It also featured in the recent BBC series 'Poldark'. A perfect break for us and the dogs and a certainty for another visit in the not too distant future. Thank you again David for your hospitality and Sykes Cottages for a great service.”

    Mr Basi, Sutton Coldfield, September 2018

    • “Samuels Cottage was clean and cosy. There was plenty of room for the whole family. The garden was a good size and great for our dog. The community village shop was extremely handy, stocking most things.”

    Mrs Lyden, St. Albans, August 2018

    • “We had an amazing holiday in this cottage, everything we needed was there... and more Spotlessly clean. David owner was warm and welcoming nothing to much trouble, made it perfectly clear he was there at hand if we needed him. Without hesitation I would recommend this cottage to you.. it’s simply perfect Setting is wonderful, just around the corner village shop well stocked and very welcoming A1, we will be back”

    Mrs Beacham, Polegate, June 2018

    • “There were seven adults and we all thought it was great. It is well equipped and there is plenty of room. It is located in a pretty friendly village. The local shop is very handy too! Although the only pub is closed and for sale there is a social club which is cheap and again very friendly a short walk away. It is central for a lot of places to see and only 3 odd miles to the beach. But I would recommend that you have transport! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.”

    Mrs Elliot, Wokingham, June 2018

Regional Information

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.
