The Owl - Looe, South Cornwall, England - Sleeps 4

The Owl

Talehay is home to five charming holiday cottages that are located just a mile from the village of Pelynt, near the popular seaside town of Looe in Cornwall. Set amongst lovely unspoilt open countryside, the cottages are approached down a quiet country lane and provide holiday accommodation for two to four guests in each cottage. Offering a high standard of comfort and cleanliness, the cottages provide an ideal base for exploring Cornwall and its many attractions.

The breathtaking Cornish coastline with spectacular views and secluded sandy coves is just three miles away, making Talehay a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing beach holiday at any time of the year. Here you can escape from the pressures of everyday life and recharge your batteries in a tranquil Cornish setting.

Looe is an ancient fishing port with a glorious sandy beach, promenade and pier. The working harbour is the hub of the town with fish landing and sold daily in the bustling market. The town offers are a good choice of pubs, restaurants and shops for stocking up on provisions.

The pretty quaint fishing village of Polperro is a charming place to visit with its lovely former fishermen's and smugglers cottages winding their way down to the harbour where you will find interesting little shops and a good selection of restaurants and pubs.

Cornwall's gentler climate is influenced by the Gulf Stream which makes it perfect for a break out of season. The famous Eden Project, many National Trust properties (including Antony and Lanhydrock), National Marine Aquarium, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Bodmin Moor, The Camel Trail and Dartmoor are all within easy reach and just twenty five miles from Talehay.
