With a front garden brimming with pretty foxgloves and hydrangea, the pretty, terraced Carpenter’s Cottage is an ideal bolt hole for a fabulous holiday in Cornwall. It is cute, charming and beautifully kitted out. Carpenter’s Cottage offers one charming double  bedroom, a bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, a characterful living room and an atmospheric kitchen diner. The cottage is an idyllic retreat for couples and perhaps one baby in a cot. It is nestled on the beautifully tended, three and a half acre Tremaine Manor Estate. Carpenter’s Cottage is a very homey property with exposed stone walls, wooden beams, a crackling fire and some lovely outside space.

The Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages Estate is absolutely wonderful, an oasis of gracious and glorious living, deep in the Cornish countryside. The estate enjoys a fabulous, tranquil location and is just ten minutes from the picturesque harbour village of Looe. The village is a centre of offshore shark fishing as well as boasting a gorgeous sandy beach, crabbing on the quayside, quaint cobbled streets, charming independent shops and an abundance of restaurants and pubs serving handmade Cornish pasties and gourmet seafood. Looe is very popular and it is easy to understand why 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. Carpenter’s Cottage is within easy reach of of the pretty town of Fowey and the atmospheric, quaint village of Polperro which dates back to the thirteenth century and is one of the oldest villages in Cornwall.

Carpenter’s Cottage is set within beautiful landscaped gardens. Sitting in a pretty terrace of cottages, it enjoys its own private front garden with lovely wrought iron furniture for a spot of alfresco dining and lovely wooden furniture where you can nestle back to enjoy your holiday books and the fragrant flowers and shrubs. There is a firepit for chilly evenings. The living room needs to be seen to be fully appreciated with its gorgeous exposed stone, wooden beams and feature fireplace. With pretty floral curtains, a leather sofa and chair, you can snuggle down to enjoy a toasty fire, a movie on the Smart television or to sing along to the Bluetooth speaker. Your quirky country kitchen enjoys lovely chequered floor tiles, wooden, shaker style cabinetry, a country dining table, more exposed stonework and beams and a carpenter’s saw decorating the far wall. It also offers excellent appliances including a Nespresso coffee machine.

The idyllic upstairs bedroom is another characterful space with its comfy double bed resting against another exposed stone wall. Here you will dive into crisp cottons, a fluffy duvet and luxury throws to enjoy the sleep of kings. The bathroom is perfect for those that love a good soak and those that prefer a shower.

Guests staying in Carpenter’s Cottage enjoy a welcome hamper, board games and playing cards and a first basket of logs. You are welcome to bring up to two of your furry friends. A separate laundry room with a washing machine and dryer is available in another building on the estate.

Carpenter’s Cottage is located on the three and a half acre Tremaine Manor Estate. It is a fabulous place to stay amongst landscaped gardens, woodland and a stream though within easy reach of the south coast beaches, charming Cornish villages and the moors.

As well as being a working fishing port, Looe is a top pick with holiday makers with 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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Perfect for two ... and a dog!

    Created on 29/08/2022

    We have recently returned from a four night break at the very quaint Carpenter’s Cottage. The cottage was small but perfect for the two of us plus our spaniel. The cottage was spotlessly clean and fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard. A welcome hamper was provided which was incredible, fresh bread, butter, jams, fruit, wine and much more. The dog was also well provided for with a bed, bowls, towel, treats and a toy. The grounds were lovely and well kept and the small cottage garden was ideal for enjoying the last rays of summer. I would highly recommend a stay here.
