This beautiful house exudes style and luxury and is perfect for a large group looking for a short break away to celebrate a big event or those seeking a holiday in a peaceful and accessible location not far from the coast. The house was built in the Victorian age and features many original characteristics but has been lovingly renovated and now offers exceptional-quality accommodation with masses of space both indoor and out and up to four pets are welcome to join in the fun.

Entering the front door into a large hallway with original Delabole slate flooring you are led through into a kitchen to swoon over! A vast space where you can linger over family breakfasts or cook-up tasty treats to enjoy in the evening around the huge dining table, basking in the glow of the wood-burning stove. An original pantry leading off the kitchen is an interesting feature and the exposed brickwork of the stairs adds to the characterful feeling. A family living room with Smart TV and Netflix and the separate snug, complete with a choice of games consoles, offers relaxation options for all. If you are feeling competitive then why not set up a table football competition in the sun room which runs the whole width of the house.

There are five spacious bedrooms upstairs, two of which have en suite shower rooms, and an absolutely splendid bathroom with a free-standing bath will mean that there is going to be a queue for those wanting a long, luxurious soak.

The village of Pelynt is about two miles from Pendriffey and is home to two good village stores, a 14th Century church and a traditional village pub which does great food in a welcoming atmosphere. The coastal towns of Looe and Polperro are a 15 minute drive away and located midway between them are the secluded twin coves of Talland Bay. This section of the Cornish coast is very unspoilt and is designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty and a Heritage Coast.

Really helpful on site owners

Dr John L,

A wonderful house which has been refurbished to the highest quality, a real home from home. Pelynt is ideally located between Looe and Polperro. There is a good convenience store in the village and Waitrose deliver to the house too. The whole house was immaculately clean and the kitchen had every utensil you could ask for. Cathy and Pete next door couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The house stands in spacious grounds and has a lovely covered BBQ area which also doubled as a stage for our ukulele concert. The rooms are spacious and the house was a wonderful venue for our Murder Mystery Evening, you don't have to worry though the murderer was lead away in handcuffs! :-D Would totally recommend this house to anyone.

Mrs Pam P,

Beautiful house. It felt like we had taken our home on holiday. Would definitely consider re-booking for next year.

Mr Paul G,

It was absolutely perfect.

Mrs Jane H,


The ancient village of Pelynt 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 picturesque streets and pretty harbours.

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.
