Horseshoe Cottage is a beautifully converted shippon with accommodation arranged on one level. It is surrounded by countryside and woodland but is only a 5 minute walk to The Blackrock Resort at Millendreath beach. The cottage comprises a spacious open plan lounge/diner, separate kitchen, main bedroom with kingsize bed, twin room, family bathroom with walk-in shower, w.c. and basin and there is an additional, separate toilet. It is very tastefully decorated and has been newly refurbished to a very high standard for the 2014 season. Horseshoe Cottage has a comfortable homely feel and is a wonderful base from which to explore Millendreath, Looe and the surrounding area. The picturesque fishing port of Looe can be reached in only 5 minutes by car or via the coastal footpath in about half an hour. In addition to its big sandy beach and bustling harbour Looe offers a huge choice of restaurants and pubs and there are many boutique style shops and narrow lanes to explore. Millendreath has a sandy beach, sea water pool and boat launching facilities. The area is undergoing a process of rejuvenation and in 2013 new beach facilities were introduced including the hire of paddleboards, kayaks, body boards and wetsuits and qualified staff are on hand to provide tuition in the various activities.The Black Rock Cafe on the beachfront with its indoor and outdoor seating was a huge success in 2013 and the enthusiastic staff are looking forward to another busy season this year. This property is ideal for those wishing to access the beach or explore the beautiful coastal path.

Horseshoe cottage has parking for several cars and a boat immediately outside of the property and WiFi is provided. It has a very well-equipped kitchen and has a large flatscreen TV with freeview and DVD player. A paved patio area overlooks the private garden.

This is a lovely property in a peacefully quiet spot, perfect for a family holiday in Cornwall.

The cottage is suitable for guests with limited mobility as the accommodation is spread over one floor and cars can pull up right outside the front door.

"The best cow-shed in Cornwall? Probably !!!"

I kid you not... Horseshoe Cottage used to be a Victorian shippen (cow shed) but has been very nicely and tastefully refurbished and decorated and lies in a quiet, secluded hillside location in the va… More

"Spacious and complete"

We stayed in horse shoe the cottage with 4 adults and I'm pleased to say that the there was plenty of space for everyone.

The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious, with adequate storage space for suitcases and clothes.

The living room is absolutely gigantic, with a very comfy sofa and nice chairs.

The Kitchen was the most complete kitchen we have ever seen is a self catering cottage, plenty of crockery and cutlery and also the more rare utensils like colander, whisk and oven dishes.

The house has a lovely garden, which is very private and quiet.

It was a little hard to find the cottage the first time, because it is so secluded and also I would not recommend staying here without a car.

Apart from that I would recommend this to cottage to everyone, it is a lovely house in a beautiful location with very kind owners.

Also the freshly baked scones upon arrival with jam and clotted cream were very nice :-)
