Full of quirky features from days gone by, atmospheric exposed stone walls and gorgeous beams, Housekeeper’s Cottage is a wonderful one bedroom holiday cottage. Its sits with three other adorable holiday cottages on the fabulous Tremaine Manor Estate, surrounded by three and a half acres of lush greenery. The cottage is perfect for a couple though there is just about space for a folding occasional bed or cot in the bedroom if you have one child or baby. If you have more than one child or want a little more space, you may like to look at our three bedroom cottages in the same location, Tinner’s Cottage or Ploughman’s Cottage.

Housekeeper’s Cottage and the Tremaine Manor Estate are located ten minutes from the picturesque harbour village of Looe. The village is a centre of offshore shark fishing. It boasts 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 once you have visited, you will understand why some 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. Miller’s Cottage is within easy reach of of the pretty town of Fowey and the atmospheric village of Polperro which dates back to the thirteenth century and is one of the oldest villages in Cornwall.

Housekeeper’s Cottage boasts a delightful living room with gorgeous features such as ceiling beams and exposed stonework. A sumptuous leather sofa sits at one end of the room looking out to the picturesque garden and, on chilly days, enjoying the heat from the wood burning stove. A vintage bureau stands on one side with an ancient remnant from the manor house above it. On the mantlepiece is a vintage sewing machine and throughout the cottage, you will discover other charming artifacts. The kitchen diner is perfect for preparing delicious meals in its shaker style kitchen. It offers excellent appliances including a Nespresso coffee maker.

Stable doors open to your pretty garden with its lush lawn, colourful borders and excellent garden furniture. You can relax with your holiday book, dine alfresco using a barbecue, enjoy the stars at night warming yourselves with the firepit and count your blessings for this wonderful spot.

Upstairs you will discover your romantic bedroom with its fabric adorned half four-poster bed.  Identical plush fabric hangs around the sumptuous bed and at the windows and around the be, complemented by luxurious soft throws and cushions. The garden and estate views are gorgeous from the window. It is a very relaxing room with just enough space for a cot or fold-out bed if you have one child. The bathroom is immaculate, offering a bath with an overhead shower.

Guests staying at the Housekeeper’s Cottage receive a welcome hamper, a basket of logs, use of a portable barbecue on request, a supply of board games, a Bluetooth speaker and a Smart television. The cottage is pet friendly with up to two of your furry friends allowed. A washing machine and tumble dryer is available in a laundry room next to the cottage.

What you should know…

  • Housekeeper’s Cottage offers only one bedroom which enjoys a fabulous, vintage half-tester bed. There is just about room for a small fold-out bed or cot though it will then be very cosy
  • As well as Tremaine Manor itself, we also feature the other holiday cottages on the estate, Tinner’s Cottage, Miller’s Cottage and Ploughman’s Cottage. You might want to bring some friends or parents along and book another cottage!

Housekeeper’s Cottage is located on the wonderful three and a half acre Tremaine Manor Estate. As you drive through the estate to the holiday cottages, you will find yourselves smiling. It is beautiful. Guests enjoy tranquility, wandering through the estate and trips to the spectacular south coast beaches.

Looe enjoys a wonderful ambience and is immensely popular with holiday makers. It offers a working port, 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.

There is a wonderful choice of beaches close by. East Looe Beach stands in front of a wonderful array of shops and cafes and is very popular. 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.

  • A beautiful cottage set in amazing well kept grounds!

    Created on 08/08/2022

    We booked a three night stay as we’re attending a wedding at the Treludewell manor. The cottage was beautiful set in amazing well kept grounds with paddocks to the rear of the grounds
    There was a welcome basket that had everything we needed ti get started in the morning. The cottages are well maintained and the kitchens have everything you could possibly need. Good wifi connection and phone reception is limited which for us wasn’t a problem. Looe and polruan are a short drive away and Pelynt the local village has a spar and premier for any bits you may have forgotten. I would highly recommend this beautiful little gem and would return without hesitation.
