Beautiful ancient stone farmhouse, sleeping seven
Leyland Farmhouse nestles in the most romantic setting the Cornish countryside could possibly offer. You will arrive down a private tree-lined drive (shared only with Annie’s Cottage, a one bedroom property which is attached to Leyland Farmhouse), into a little farmstead with beautiful stone barn and outbuildings and private parking just near the house.
The house is a beautiful ancient stone farmhouse, restored expertly from a ruin in the 1970s and renovated in entirety in 2021/2. You have a private garden of your own, as well as use of the grounds (shared only with Annie’s Cottage), which include a lovely orchard and large lawn with views over rolling hills to the sea. The gardens are a treasure trove planted by a true garden lover 25 years ago and left to go wild in recent years.
You will enter the house through a large stone porch (past a downstairs cloakroom with WC) and into a hall. To the right is a huge kitchen with high ceiling and original flagstone floor. A pantry and utility room come off of the kitchen. A corridor to the left of the hall takes you to a downstairs king bedroom with ensuite shower room, followed by the main sitting room with log burner.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has a four-poster bed, the second bedroom has a zip ‘n’ link superking/ twin and en-suite shower room, and the third is a small single room. There is a family bathroom upstairs with bath and shower over.
The house has central heating and is furnished with carefully chosen antiques, handmade soft furnishings, new suites and luxurious pocket-sprung beds. Guests staying in Leyland Farmhouse will have access to all our facilities at Treworgey (which is a 5 minute walk across the field, or a 5 minute drive round the lanes) except the pool during the summer holidays, as Leyland has its own pool just beside it (please note this is shared with adjoining Annie’s Cottage, and is only open during the summer holidays). For early and late summer, Leyland guests are welcome to use the pool at Treworgey.
Looe is a bustling fishing town situated on the south coast of Cornwall. It is divided into South Looe and East Looe by the River Looe, connected by a bridge for vehicle and foot traffic.
Stepping out from your Cornish holiday cottage in Looe, there are plenty of shops to browse, pubs to drink in and restaurants to dine out at. Nearly all of the local tea shops and restaurants offer fresh locally sourced fish and you can purchase fresh fish from the local fishmongers on the quayside. Perfect to take back and grill on the BBQ at your holiday home. If you fancy something from the Cornish land though, The Smugglers Cottage offers up steak and carvery specialities.
It isn’t a holiday until you have spent some time on the beach. In East Looe there is a beach beside the Banjo Pier and in West Looe is Hannafore Beach, from which there is a view across to Looe Island. You can even try to find your sea legs with a little stand up paddle boarding or just enjoy a traditional picnic on the sand, while the children paddle in the sea.
A trip to Looe Island is a fun day out, it is is noted for it’s particularly mild climate and variety of wildlife. There are no shops or pubs on the island and no cars allowed, but there are two beautiful beaches and plenty of woodlands to explore. The island is accessible on foot at low tide and by foot ferry at a charge when the tide is in.
If you are interested in history, then swing by The Old Sardine Factory where you can learn all about Looe’s past or take a ride on the Looe Valley Line. The Looe Valley Line is runs out to Liskeard along the East Looe river valley and has magnificent views. There are also lots of different birds to see including Little Eygrets, Grey Herons and Curlews.
For something slightly more indulgent, take some ‘you time’ at the Hannafore Point Hotel and Spa. Relax in fluffy white towels, book a treatment and lunch and then soak up the bubbles in the hydrotherapy pool before returning to your holiday home for a quiet night in.
Just a short drive from Looe, you will find lots of other attractions in the area including Talland Bay, beautiful Fowey and its’ neighbour Polruan, the busy fishing harbour village of Polperro and the bustling village of Padstow with its harbour shops, pubs and splendid walks along the Camel estuary.
Your Looe Cottage is a great base from which to get to know this stunning part of Cornwall.
