Blacksmith’s Cottage is the largest of the two bedroom cottages on the phenomenal Tremaine Manor Estate. It is a dreamy, comfortable property with a lavish four poster bed in the master bedroom and three single beds in the second bedroom. The kitchen diner is huge and like the glorious living room, it is very characterful.

The Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages Estate is absolutely wonderful, an oasis of calm nature, sprinkled with lush lawns, woodland trails and a stream where you will hear the owls hoot and the wind whispering through the boughs of the ancient oaks. Ten minutes away, Looe is a centre of offshore shark fishing as well as boasting a gorgeous sandy beach, crabbing on the quayside, quaint cobbled streets, independent local shops and an abundance of restaurants and pubs serving handmade Cornish pasties and gourmet seafood. Looe is very popular and many visitors return year after year. The South West Coastal Path, Britain’s longest National Trail, passes through the village and Bodmin Moor is on the doorstep with its granite tors, plentiful streams, waterfalls, moorland ponies, pretty heather and wild beauty. The pretty town of Fowey and the atmospheric village of Polperro which dates back to the thirteenth century are within very easy reach of Blacksmith’s Cottage.

Blacksmith Cottage’s living room is fascinating with its walls sprinkled with vintage blacksmith tools. With a roaring log burning stove, double glazing and oil fired heating, it is a toasty nest where you will relax in style and modern comfort. The cottage enjoys a warm, inviting ambience with a home-from-home feel. The generous sized kitchen is brilliantly well fitted with vivid colour splashes, shaker style units, wooden worktops and excellent appliances including a Nespresso coffee machine for your morning cup of coffee. There are beams and an exposed stone wall adding charm and atmosphere to the spacious dining area. The carpeted living room also enjoys gorgeous beams, a leather sofa, accent chairs and a the warming fire burning stove. You can spend a quiet night in watching a movie on the Smart television, listening to your favourite tunes on the Bluetooth speaker or playing family games such as chess, jigsaws, board games and playing cards which are provided for your entertainment.

Upstairs you will discover the master bedroom with its lavish four-poster bed adorned with crisp cottons, a throw, lovely scatter cushions and surrounding drapes that match the curtains. The room is light and airy with a huge window and stunning estate views. There is room in the master for a cot too if you are traveling with a bundle of joy or a folding bed for an older child. The second bedroom is beautifully presented with attractive soft furnishings adorning the three single beds and pretty curtains hanging at the window. It is a great room for children. The beautifully tiled bathroom offers a bath and overhead shower.

Guests staying at Blacksmith’s Cottage receive a welcome hamper, a basket of logs, enjoy use of a portable barbecue on request and are welcome to bring up to two of their furry friends with them. A washing machine and tumble dryer is available in a nearby laundry room.

The cottage boasts a small private garden with alfresco dining and lounge furniture as well as a fire pit for chilly evenings. You can walk from the front door of Blacksmith’s Cottage to enjoy this magical estate, finding beautiful picnic spots along the way.

Blacksmith’s Cottage enjoys a lovely peaceful spot on the magnificent three and a half acre Tremaine Manor Estate. It is a quiet, countryside property, within easy reach of the south coast beaches, the fantastic South West Coast Path and the beautiful moors. It is just ten minutes to Looe. Whilst retaining a working fishing port, Looe boasts wonderful eateries, Cornish pasty shops, a beautiful beach and some excellent, unique shops. Visitors enjoy watching crabbers on the quayside and the colourful fishing boats returning with their catches. Looe boasts many local gourmet restaurants overlooking the harbour as well as award winning fish and chips near the river. There is a pretty bridge that separates East and West Looe. The Looe Marine Conservation Group host regular rockpool rambles for children of all ages. Their website gives details of the wildlife events and local family friendly adventures such as crabbing, snorkeling, bird watching, fishing and visits to Looe Island. Looe Island was once a holy pilgrimage site. Now it is a sanctuary for wildlife and rare plants. In 2004 Looe Island was left to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust by Babs Atkins who had bought the island with her sister in the 1960’s. You will discover a grey seal population sunbathing on the rocks and swimming around the island. The island is home to many nesting birds such as cormorants, shags and oystercatchers. It boasts the largest breeding colony in Cornwall of the majestic great black-backed gull. During the summer months there are frequent boat trips and guided walks. The Old Sardine Factory Heritage Centre tells the story of Looe’s maritime history. You will learn how Looe exported pilchards to Italy, sent pilgrims to Galicia and sailed across the Atlantic to catch cod off of Newfoundland. You will also learn about boat building and experience a lifeboat Shout! with state-of-the-art technology. The centre is also a climbing wall and kayaking centre. If you fancy a scenic day out but don’t want to drive, you can take the Looe Valley train line to the historic market town of Liskeard. There are stunning views though heavily wooded valleys teeming with wildlife, glorious estuary views and rivers full of wading birds such as little egrets, grey herons, oystercatchers and curlews. Looe’s Music Festival is fast becoming a very popular outdoor event attracting many famous artists such as Jools Holland, Bryan Ferry, Lulu, the Stranglers and many more.

The stunning South West Coast Path passed through Looe. Starting in Minehead in Somerset, it covers 630 miles ending in Poole in Dorset. It offers extraordinary sea views and is very popular. There are also countless walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding Looe. You may want to walk around Fowey where you can enjoy seeing Menabilly, once the home of Daphne du Maurier and the inspiration for Manderley in her novel Rebecca. Fowey is a popular sailing destination and a quaint deep-water fishing port. There is a ferry service to the pretty village of Polruan opposite. Walking from Polruan towards Polperro you will pass the beautiful Lantic Bay and the horseshoe shaped West Coombe at Lansallos. Polperro is a gorgeous, quintessential Cornish fishing village with steep narrow streets, pretty slate cottages and stunning views. Sheltered from the ravages of tide and time in its dramatic cliff ravine, Polperro is an enchanting jumble of cottages, all the work of Cornish fishermen. The 36 mile walk from Looe to Boscastle is wonderful, crossing Bodmin Moor via Davidstow, Rough Tor and Brown Willy and passing through the verdant West Looe Valley. The Deerpark Forest is also another treat with many trails running through the woodland. With tranquil millpond views, winding forest trails and a hidden valley, it is a great day out.

This area of Cornwall enjoys a wonderful choice of beaches. In Looe, East Looe Beach is very popular with families. Millendreath Beach is a gorgeous south facing sandy beach at the foot of a wooded valley. Just around the corner is Plaidy Beach, a small, sheltered beach which is wonderful if you are looking to chill with some peace and quiet. Talland Bay is between Looe and Polperro. It is made up of two coves and is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Seaton Beach is also close, to the east of Looe. It is situated at the foot of the Hessenford Valley with the River Seaton crossing the beach. Hoodny Cove and Finnygook Beach are accessible from Portwrinkle Beach, both sandy and popular with families. Finnygook is a surfers favourite. Other popular beaches are Polperro, Whitsand Bay and Downderry Beach.

Bodmin Moor is one of Cornwall’s designated Areas of Outstanding Beauty. With its giant stretches of heather, this upland granite moorland is delightful. It is brimming with high granite tors, streams and waterfalls and you will probably get to see the moorland ponies grazing.

The museum offers a fascination collection of smuggling memorabilia. Visitors will learn of the town’s railway heritage. There are some wonderful model boats housed in the town’s old Guildhall and Gaol. By all accounts there is also a ghost who lurks in the dark recesses!

Kilminorth Woods is a local nature reserve that is classified as ancient woodland. It is part of a County Wildlife Site and has been featured on the BBC’s Breathing Places Project. It is a great stop for a walk and a picnic.

The Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary is four miles from Looe. It is a fascinating and informative refuge for troubled primates. The surrounding wildlife gardens and nature reserve enhance the holistic feel of the sanctuary. There are lots of activity workshops for children as well as a bat zone, wildlife room and display room.

Polperro’s Model Village is a popular attracton. It is a miniature version of the village of Polperro with many exciting references to the Cornish Myth and Legend. The Land of Legend exhibit tells seven fascinating stories from local folklore and about pirates and smugglers. A wonderful little model railway runs throughout the village.
 
The Adrenalin Quarry at Liskeard is a wonderful adventure with activities for all the family. It boasts huge double zipwires, a giant cliff top swing, an aquapark, karting, a children’s playground and axe throwing. There is free entry for wild swimming, sunbathing and picnics in this unique and beautifully scenic setting. The Aquapark is a massive inflatable playground with oversized trampolines, monkey bars, slides, swings and lots more. You can drive on the 800m all weather track at Kartworld. Karting is available for all ages from seven years. The Zip is the maddest attraction and offers the best views. Reaching speeds of 40mph, 50 metres high and over 490 metres long, the twin wires cross the old quarry from sheer cliffs rising on either side. There are minimum and maximum weights. You need to be very brave to go on the Giant Swing. It takes three visitors at a time so maybe the best bet is to go with other members of your family to give you courage.

For a day of sandcastle building and swimming at the beach, you can head to Talland Bay Beach, Seaton Beach, Polperro Beach, Portwrinkle Beach or Lantic Bay. The choice is endless.
