Romantic hideaway in the Cornish countryside
You could almost be in New England in this unique tabernacle made for two, creatively crafted from Cornish tin. For an enchantingly romantic slice of heaven, look no further than this luxurious hideaway.
Set in delightful rolling countryside, The Tabernacle offers a lovingly crafted and beautifully designed space for a couple. With a creatively decorated space, beautiful bespoke stained-glass window and luxurious king-sized bed set within a gated inner sanctum, this is the perfect place for true togetherness.
While here, you will escape and relax off grid. Cosy underfloor heating, an exquisitely comfortable bed, a wood burner, gorgeous views and a wonderful hot tub all combine to dissolve away your cares each day.
There’s a sacred feel to this place, inspired by the Methodist preachers travelling around Cornwall in the eighteenth century. You and your loved one will feel cherished spending time together in this sumptuous secret hideaway.
This tiny tabernacle is set in a wooded paddock so start your day naturally. Take a walk in the beech woods down to the stream, ‘forest bathing’ for natural wellbeing. There are thirteen acres of smallholding here with friendly alpacas and sheep dotting the landscape. Leave your phone and camera behind, leaving your senses to absorb the relaxing countryside air. Feel yourselves unwind and truly connect to nature and each other.
Outside this sanctuary, the beautiful seaside villages of Looe, Polperro and Fowey beckon, easily reachable along the rugged Cornish coastline.
Outside in the evening, feel calm and relaxed with a glorious view to the valley as you warm by the chiminea. End your evening enveloped in the sensuous warmth of the cedarwood hot tub. On a clear night, an amazing lightshow of stars blankets the sky here, so you feel at one with the natural world, before drifting off into a deep slumber in your very own temple.
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.
