The estate enjoys a fabulous, tranquil location 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, 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 giant inglenook fireplace immediately draws your eye with its large wood burning stove and traditional cloam bread oven.

A vintage rug sits in front of the fire together with a comfy sofa and armchairs, making it a snug cosy spot on a chilly evening.

A royal blue painted doorframe leads you through to the country kitchen with its excellent appliances including a Nespresso coffee maker. The kitchen is a happy, cheerful place with plenty of colour splashes and charming beams.

The master bedroom is downstairs too with a smart shower room. It is a fabulously romantic room with its four poster bed beautifully dressed with crisp cottons and lovely scatter cushions that match the drapes surrounding the bed. The bedroom is light and airy, enjoying beautiful garden views. The second bedroom and the children’s bunk room are upstairs, along with the family bathroom.

The idyllic Ploughman’s Cottage is located on the three and a half acre Tremaine Manor Estate. It is a beautiful place to stay, within easy reach of the south coast beaches and the moors yet peaceful and very private.

Looe is very attractive fishing village that is very popular with holidaymakers. It boasts wonderful gourmet eateries, friendly cafes, Cornish pasty shops, a stunning beach and some excellent, independent 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.

Visitors looking for a day by the sea have 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 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.

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.
