GETTING AROUND

We recommend our guests use a car. Free off-road, private parking space is available at the cottage.We will forward you a pdf file with driving directions and a local map which we STRONGLY recommend you print and use. Satellite Navigation with postcode input is highly unreliable in the country lanes where streets do not have listed names, and a single postcode covers a large area!

There is no public transport 'on the doorstep'. There is a bus service from the nearest village Pelynt, which is approx. 40 minutes walk.

The nearest train stations are Looe (6 miles) and Liskeard (7 miles). Taxis are available at both stations. Liskeard station is on the main London Paddington to Penzance line, with many trains everyday. Looe station is a branch line (very scenic) which connects with the main line at Liskeard.

Airports: Newquay 26 miles Exeter 70 miles Bristol 134 miles Cardiff 184 miles Heathrow 217 miles Gatwick 232 miles Luton 239 miles Stansted 262 miles.

SHOPPING

In Pelynt village (1½ miles) you’ll find two very good grocery shops, both with convenient parking in front of the door. Boxall’s Spar Shop and Post Office is in the centre of the village, it sells a wide range of chilled and organic produce, including local cheeses, hams, lots of other delicatessen products, groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh herbs, toiletries, newspapers, magazines, wines, spirits, hot snacks and stationery. It also has a cash machine. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 7.30 am until 9pm and Sunday 9am until 6pm.

Pelynt Stores & O’Keeffe’s Traditional Family Butchers, is just opposite the church, behind the Old School. It has an excellent family run butchers (great sausages!) and stocks a wide range of groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, hot snacks, beers and wines, etc. Opening times are Monday to Saturday 5am until 7pm and Sunday 8am until 6pm. Opening times for both stores can vary over Public Holidays.

You'll also find various excellent shopping opportunities in Looe (6 miles). For great fresh fish and seafood direct from the quay go to Pengellys Fish Market on Buller Quay (which leads from the short stay car park). Also on Buller Quay is the farm shop Quayside Fresh, selling a great range of local farm fresh vegetables, salad and fruits as well as dairy produce, bread, biscuits, tinned goods, drinks, a wide range of groceries and they also have a Warrens Butchers selling quality local meats, sausages, etc. Also in Looe you’ll find two Co-Op stores, bakers, Boots Chemist, Post Office and banks.

Supermarkets: There is a Morrisons supermarket in Liskeard (7½ miles) , ASDA and Sainsbury’s in Bodmin (14 miles) and an excellent Waitrose in Saltash (18 miles).

For a wide range of quality international wines we recommend Waitrose and Morrisons.

DOGS

We welcome well behaved dogs at Hill House (surcharge £20 per dog - Maximum 2 Dogs!), the area is dog lover's paradise, and well behaved pets are more than welcome here by prior arrangement, provided that they are not allowed upstairs (stair-gates provided) in the bedrooms, bathrooms or on any of the furniture. Please bring bedding, bowls and towels, etc for your pet. We ask that you never, under any circumstances, leave them alone in the cottage or garden whilst you are out or allow them to be noisy or annoy other guests.

There are many superb walks from the cottage for both dogs and their owners. PLEASE REMEMBER: This is a farming area and there is livestock in the neighbouring fields, do not allow your dog out on its own, and do not allow it to harass the animals. We also request that owners clear up thoroughly after their pets, including poop-scooping the garden and disposing of waste appropriately; securely tied in a plastic bag. There is a charge of £20 per dog, maximum 2 dogs. Please let us know when booking if you are bringing a canine friend!

MULTI FUEL STOVE

We can organise logs, coal, kindling and firelighters for your arrival. The cost is £20, which includes 1 bag of house coal, 1 bag of logs, 1 bag of kindling and firelighters. If you need further supplies you can buy them from both local shops in Pelynt village. Be sure the logs and coal you buy are labelled ‘suitable for a multi-fuel stove’!

Please let us know when booking if you would like us to organise your stove. If using the multi-fuel stove please BE SURE to read the section 'Multi-Fuel Stove...' in the Guest Manual in your cottage. The stove should only be stocked with seasoned logs and certain coals: please check! No other materials should be used/burnt in the stove!

THE KITCHEN 

We love cooking! Time together on holiday in the kitchen with friends, music and a bottle of wine, cooking with the family, or preparing a romantic dinner for two is great fun, and we try to support that with a well equipped and stocked kitchen. We keep a small larder of cooking basics, such as herbs, spices, salt, peppercorns, olive oil, vinegar, stock cubes, flour, sugar etc, as well as supplies such as tea, coffee, freezer bags, foil, greaseproof paper, cling film and cleaning items. All the things you need on a self-catering holiday but don't necessarily want to bring with you or buy and carry home. We do not charge for this, and cannot guarantee these items will definitely be available, everything is simply what we and our guests buy and leave for others to enjoy, please feel free to use the store and add to it. If we all in someway replenish what we use, donate a replacement, or simply add something else to the larder, we can all enjoy the benefit now and next time!

HOUSE RULES & SAFETY NOTES

A full list of House Rules & Safety Notes can be found in the Guest Manual on arrival. We kindly ask you take the time to read them!

Once booked we will send you a link to an online map with scores of tips for restaurants, pubs, cafes, beaches, places of interest, walks, shopping etc.

Duloe

Trengrove Cottage at Hill House is part of Trefanny Hill hamlet which consists of about a dozen picturesque cottages between the villages of Pelynt and Duloe. It is a beautiful, quiet location, secluded and perfect for country walks with its stunning surrounding countryside.
The nearest town to Trefanny Hill is the ancient fishing port Looe (6 miles) which remains a fishing town, and several fish dealers operate from the docks of East Looe. With its fleet of small fishing boats returning their catches to port daily, Looe has a reputation for producing excellent fresh fish. The town is also a centre for shark fishing, and is the home of the Shark Angling Club of Great Britain.
Looe's main business today is tourism, with much of the town given over to hotels, guest houses and holiday homes, along with a large number of pubs, restaurants, and shops selling beach equipment, ice cream and Cornish pasties. Inland from Looe lie many camping and caravan sites, as well as a famous Woolly monkey sanctuary. Other local attractions include the beaches, sailing, fishing and diving, and spectacular coastal walks (especially that via Talland to Polperro. Several stately homes, including Antony House, Cotehele, Mount Edgcumbe, and Lanhydrock House, as well as the Eden Project near St Austell may be visited by tourists who can travel by car.
Outside the busy summer months, the town remains a centre for shopping and entertainment for local villagers. There is a tradition of the townsfolk wearing fancy dress on New Year's Eve, when the streets are thronged with revellers in inventive outfits. Looe has been on the list of the top 10 places in the UK to celebrate New Year.
Looe is being regenerated, like many other ports, to serve as a small cargo port. On the high ground north of East and West Looe there are many modern houses and a recreational area called 'The Downs'.
East Looe
East Looe centres on its broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier, creation of Joseph Thomas, a new lifeboat station and St Mary's Church. Stretching back from here is a grid of narrow streets forming the main business area of the town, packed with many small shops, restaurants and pubs, and the Old Guildhall, now a museum. Along the estuary lies the quay, with several fish dealers. Towards the bridge lies the Victorian Guildhall, and just north of the bridge the railway station. This is the terminus of the Looe Valley branch line to Liskeard (at Liskeard, the line connects with the main Plymouth to Penzance Great Western Main Line).
On the hilltop above East Looe lies Shutta, and beyond that the Sunrising housing estate and Looe Community School. Along the cliffs to the east is Plaidy Beach, and further on the bay and village of Millendreath with another beach.
West Looe
West Looe spreads west from the bridge on the Polperro Road towards Sclerder, and along the river south of the bridge, with hotels, restaurants and boarding houses along the waterfront and houses climbing the perilous cliff above, towards a cluster of shops and businesses and the Church of St Nicholas.
Further south along the coast road is Hannafore Point, marking the edge of Looe Harbour, with to the west the wide, stony Hannafore beach, facing across a narrow channel to Looe Island (officially called St. George's Island). Slightly inland is the hamlet of Portlooe. Beyond lies a coastal path leading to the hamlets of Porthallow and Talland, and from there on to Polperro. Two towers mark one end of a nautical measured mile, the other end is marked by two towers near Talland Bay.
New Year's celebration
On New Year's Eve, Looe has a surprisingly large celebration. The small fishing town, usually quiet in winter, due to the largely seasonal economy, is host to an influx of visitors. People flock the streets in their hundreds, wearing fancy dress, a tradition upheld by all ages. The crowds begin the evening in the town and slowly move towards the seafront for a fireworks display, and the announcement of the new year.

Shopping
We have two excellent general stores in Pelynt village. Boxall's Spar Shop in the centre of the village sells just about everything including; groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, toiletries, newspapers, magazines, wines, spirits and stationary. It also has a cash machine and a post office.
Opening times: 9am until 9pm Monday to Saturday, and 9am until 6pm on Sundays.
Joe O'Keeffe's Pelynt Stores, behind the Old School, has an excellent butchers and also stocks a wide range of groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables, diary products etc.
Opening times: 7am until 7pm Monday to Saturday and 8am until 2pm on Sundays.
Opening time for both stores can vary over Public Holidays.
There is a Morrison's supermarket in Liskeard, ASDA and Sainsbury's in Bodmin and a Waitrose in Saltash.

Hill House is in a secluded location, at least 1.5 miles (30-40 minute walk) from Pelynt, the nearest village. There is a local bus service from Pelynt. We recommend that our guests use a car when staying with us.
