Take a break and escape to this romantic cottage set in a secluded hamlet overlooking glorious countryside but within 6 miles of the coastal villages of Looe and Polperro. Forming part of Trefanny Hill Cottages, Little Orchard is an ideal bolthole for two and has been finished to a high standard to provide a snug, comfortable holiday cottage. This quirky, charming barn conversion with its plush carpets and cosy wood burning stove, is a delight. With many original features such as the deep recessed windows, painted uneven stone walls, wooden doors and exposed beams combined with modern facilities, it is a perfect retreat.

Two miles away is the ancient village of Pelynt which is home to two well-stocked village stores, a characterful, traditional village pub and a 14th century church. There are many places to visit close by and the South West Coast Path can be joined at Talland Bay from where you can head east to Looe or west to Polperro and explore these quaint towns with their narrow streets and pretty harbours.

Local Area

The town of Looe has charming narrow streets leading down to a picturesque harbour, and is split into East and West Looe by the river that runs through it, and on down to the beach.  Looe's sandy beach has a little cafe where you can linger over a cup of coffee while people-watching or admiring the view. There are a number of lovely cafes, as well as restaurants and pubs to choose from, making this a great destination for the foodies among you. You will have the opportunity to buy freshly-caught fish from the market on the quay, or if you fancy it, go out on a fishing trip to have a go at catching your own! If you don't fancy fishing, a good alternative boat trip is to Looe Island, where you can find some lovely examples of rare plants, and spot plenty of wildlife, including grey seals and seabirds.  Looe Marine Conservation Group can give you more information about the island and its wildlife. Looe is said to be a wonderful place to enjoy the New Year festivities, a time when many happy party-goers in fancy dress descend upon the town to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a magnificent display of fireworks.


Little Orchard is a gem of a property - warm cosy and comfortable. Loved the log burner, but weather was mild so only used it once. Would i stay here again? Absolutely!Mr D Phillips - 7th November 2018
A charming rural cottage, very well presented and in a good location for visiting Looe and Polperro. We enjoyed our stay.Mr Peter Sutton - 27th August 2018

Very nice cottage.Mrs Margaret Mason - 28th May 2018
As I am partially disabled I usually book short breaks, ground floor accommodation and with an enclosed garden as we take our dog. It was easy to filter potential accommodation using the website. Would definatley book via Cornish Horizons again when we next visit Cornwall.Angela Clay - 30th April 2018
Would highly recommend Little Orchard - the cottage is cosy and very nicely decorated, with attractive finishing touches. We were lucky enough to have lovely weather and the enclosed garden was both sunny and peaceful. Handy for Looe, Polperro & quick and easy for the ferry for Fowey. We had an issue with the DVD not working & a new one was delivered the same day - impressed that it was sorted so quickly. Mrs Sue Wilson - 24th April 2018
Charming little cottage in perfect surroundingsMr Olly Giddings - 21st February 2018
