Looe, Cornwall

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This striking and handsome slate-hung farmhouse has been converted into two sizeable cottages, West House and Old House, both with far-reaching views over the fields towards the sea, with Dodman Point in the distance. Each cottage has its own enclosed garden and picnic table to enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

Lansallos Barton is on the edge of Lansallos halfway between the coastal villages of Polruan and Polperro. This small hamlet is a cluster of cottages around a charming church. Stunning coastal scenery, Lansallos Cove and the other little beaches on Lantivet Bay are all a short walk away. If it’s the hustle and bustle that you are after then head to Polperro, Looe or Fowey.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Well presented and equipped cottage

    The cottage was lovely. It was presented very well, was well equipped and in a beautiful location. The welcome note and flowers, milk and biscuits were a lovely touch.

    Made enjoyable..

    A warm and comfortable cottage which enabled us to gather the family for a pre-Christmas lunch enjoyed with our two dogs.

    This is the second (my fourth) time we have stayed at West House. We choose it for its location. The House is very well equipped and I like the improvements that have been made over the years to the Kitchen and Bathroom.. The addition of wooden floors down stairs in the Main room and Hall is very good. There is now a consistency in the main room with coordinated fittings, lamps, pictures and the mirror over the fire.

    Cosy cottage with an open fire

    The cottage was wonderfully clean and well furnished - very cosy with the open fire. We loved going down the footpath to the local beach and doing the (pretty strenuous!) coastal path walks. Could we have wi fi if available?

    Made enjoyable....

    We loved the location of the cottage: it was very peaceful and quiet. Also, the view was stunning. The proximity to the coast walks was a big plus. The cottage was dog-friendly, but there wasn't an outside hose to wash my dog; we had to carry bucket full of water outside a few times from the kitchen to rinse out mud from our dog. Also, there was no wifi at the property and we couldn't even get mobile signal most of the time; we felt a bit disconnected from the world!
