Talehay is home to five lovely holiday cottages which sleep between two to four guests in each cottage and offer a high standard of comfort. Located near to (one mile) of the Cornish village of Pelynt, the cottages are within easy reach of the popular seaside resort of Looe nestling amongst tranquil rolling countryside.
The spectacular Cornish coastline with its secluded sandy coves and breathtaking views is just three miles away and Talehay makes a perfect place to spend a relaxing beach holiday or to use as a base for exploring this wonderful area. What ever time of the year, Talehay provides the opportunity to escape from the pressures of everyday life - a place where you can relax and recharge your batteries in the peace and quiet of the Cornish countryside.
Looe is a very old fishing port that is popular with families having an expansive golden beach, promenade and pier. The hub of the town is the busy working harbour where fish are landed and sold in the market daily. There are also a wide choice of traditional pubs, restaurants and shops to browse.
The quaint fishing village of Polperro is a pretty place to visit with its tangle of former fishermen's and smugglers cottages working their way down to the harbour, small shops and a good selection of pubs and restaurants.
Cornwall's gentler climate; influenced by the Gulf Stream, is ideal for an out-of-season break. The ground breaking Eden Project, many National Trust properties (including Lanhydrock, and Antony), Lost Gardens of Heligan, National Marine Aquarium, The Camel Trail, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor are all within twenty five miles of Talehay.

Approached via a quiet lane, Talehay Farmhouse is an ancient Grade II listed Cornish farmstead with its origins in the 17th Century. No longer a working farm, Talehay overlooks open countryside around a central courtyard of converted stone built holiday cottages. To the rear of the farm are two and a half acres of pasture land where sheep and chickens are kept - a great favourite with children.
Offering a tranquil setting to relax and unwind, Talehay is perfect for those looking to get away and recharge their batteries.
