Description

A dream house with glorious sea views, Blanches House is set in a peaceful and secluded location in 2.5 acres of sheltered, south-facing gardens and surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Lying between Looe and Fowey, the spectacular National Trust coastline is a 10 minute walk from the garden down an exquisite, almost private valley. Lansallos Cove, an ideal swimming beach and perfect for children, is also within easy walking distance. The fishing village of Polperro and the vibrant port of Fowey are a short drive away.

Blanches House provides spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to nine people, with a farmhouse kitchen, expansive living room and hallway, 5 bedrooms (one downstairs), 2 bathrooms and an additional WC. Outside there are lovely private sitting out areas overlooking the valley and sea, several terraced lawns and lots of secret gardens to explore. For large groups, we can accommodate a further five people next door in Blanches Cottage, the original character

For large groups, we can accommodate a further five people next door in Blanches Cottage, the original character cottage.

We include a Cornish cream tea on arrival, free wireless broadband, delicious natural spring water and complimentary access to Fowey Hall Hotel's luxurious pool. Out of season we offer discounted rates for couples with additional guests charged at £50 per week.

Blanches House would suit families (we are fully geared up for babies and small children), walkers (including the four-legged variety), bird-watchers, garden lovers and those who simply wish to get away from it all while staying in a spacious well-equipped family home surrounded by nature.

Further details

Blanches House and Cottage, the cottage next door, share the 2.5 acres of gardens. They have their own entrances and their own sitting out areas.

Further details indoors

The accommodation consists of a fully equipped farmhouse kitchen with a 'banquet size' dining table and a beamed and expansive drawing room and galleried hallway, both with large wood burners.

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, a king, double and 2 twins. Three enjoy beautiful views down the garden and valley to the sea. Two have wash hand basins. There is a large shower room (2 basins) with WC.

Downstairs, there is a single bedroom (with an additional pull-out bed) suitable for someone who can't manage the stairs, with another large bathroom with clothes washing facilities alongside. This section can be closed off from the rest of the house and has its own entrance onto the parking area so it would make the perfect self-contained annex for a nanny.

There is an additional WC downstairs.

The house is centrally heated. There is wireless broadband and delicious water from our private spring. We have an iPod player, so you can bring your favourite music.

Further details outdoors

Outside there are lovely sitting out areas overlooking the valley and sea, several terraced lawns, lots of secret gardens to explore and a large tree house to play in. We include free use of the luxurious swimming pool at the Fowey Hall Hotel spa. There are tennnis courts overlooking the sea at Looe which are open to visitors.

Location description from owner

The England region

Cornwall is one of the world's most stunning destinations. From the beautiful coastline of the north to the sheltered bays in the south, loved by surfers, walkers, sailing buffs, gastronauts and visitors simply seeking a break from a busy world have discovered a breathtaking, vibrant culture, first class accommodation, food to die for and a thrilling adventure playground.

Lansallos

Fowey is a vibrant sailing town set around a beautiful estaury. Just across the Bodinnick Ferry you will find magical country lanes and beaches to explore. Most of the coastline between Fowey and Polperro is owned and protected by the National Trust. Lansallos is a dreamy hamlet set around a 14th Century church with a smugglers' track to the beach. Blanches is one of a small handful of private houses in the area with a view of the sea and its position at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley is second to none. We immediately fell in love with it and if you come you will see why!

“a beautiful relaxing hideaway retreat”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

Blanches proved the perfect tranquil and picturesque setting for my wifes birthday break. The cottage sits at the top of a valley looking down at rolling countryside to the sea creating a real wow factor.......the valley walk proved very manageable culminating in a romantic bench view at the sea shore. The cottage was immaculate and clean throughout and (really important in the winter) lovely and warm via its robust central heating system. The owners made us feel very welcome and went he extra mile in collecting a surprise arrangement of flowers from the local florist which were waiting for my wife when we arrived along with a tasty local scone and clotted cream. The road getting to the property is a narow one but with lots of passing points for the oncoming traffic but well worth it when you turn into the drive of this magical property. suitable for small or large families and an added bonus is that it is dog friendly.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for the review. We've very glad you had a good birthday break! Blanches has hosted many family celebrations over the years for groups of 2 up to 14+ people. We accept dogs and we're fully geared up for babies and small children. The valley below the house is stunning but for beach access it's easiest to walk along the lane and down the Church path to lovely Lansallos Cove. If it's too cold for a swim, there's always the Fowey Hall Hotel Spa's indoor pool - we offer complimentary access for our guests.
