  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed
  • Car advised

2 miles from Pelynt, tucked down hedgerow lanes and a long private drive, two pretty, detached stone cottages on the side of a deep valley (panoramic views) full of wildlife and flowers, 3½ miles from Looe. Steep, grassy slope and steps to woods and river. Only birds and bees disturb the peace. Good river valley and woodland walks from the cottages. Family donkeys and dogs are extremely friendly and happy to accompany you over owners' 54 acres (sheep, lambs in spring) which encompass St Nun's holy well; its waters are reputed to cure insanity and all visitors are supposed to leave a gift of a 'pin', in this context a pin of ale for the farmer! You are welcome to collect eggs (when available) and groom the donkeys. Spring water. A wonderfully tranquil escape, free from traffic noise and light pollution (star-gazing). Good walk to pub at Duloe.

Hobb Cottage: to the front, a low granite wall topped with quartz encircles a pretty flower-filled suntrap garden (table/chairs). Entrance to hall, loo/washbasin; neat fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer); living/dining room with attractive high beamed ceiling, TV/DVD, open fire (logs and coal included) and lovely valley views; stairs down to double bedroom and shower-room (suite). No children. A great place to unwind.

The West Country region

South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor's southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.

On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall's loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.

Morval

Pelynt: village (pub, several shops) 3 miles from Polperro (pretty fishing village) and Looe. 'And shall Trelawney die, here's twenty thousand Cornishmen will know the reason why'. This is where he was born and - some 300 years ago - did die.
