About Annya Derx

The Family bought this lovely house 12 years ago and spend time their regularly. There is a yearly maintenance program and over the years have restored this house to is former glory - sympathetically decorating it ensuring its is in keeping with its heritage and at the same time modernising it to ensure it has all mod cons and is very comfortable.

Annya Derx purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why Annya Derx chose Polperro

It was love at first sight - beautiful architecture, large spacious rooms, fabulous gardens and views with peace and quiet yet close to the village of Polperro with its Inns, restaurants, harbour and independent shops and cafes.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The house has 8 bedrooms all with en suite so is the ideal house for large family gatherings. Over the 12 years hundreds of families have loved staying here and I think that adds to the atmosphere and is why our guests call it Lovely Landaviddy.We love this part of cornwall as it is so accessible to all Cornwall has to offer and very beautiful - close to beaches and near the coast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all feel that your Landaviddy website needs to be upgraded. Most places look better on the internet and are a disappointment when you actually see them

but Landaviddy was the complete opposite. We were blown away by the charm of the house and the loveliness of the gardens and we don't think your website does

them justice.

Family Holiday - 4 Generations

  • 5 out of 5
For an 80th Birthday, our family was able to find a holiday home to fit everyone's needs.

There were no fights over the bathrooms as the was one per bedroom and for those unable to use stairs, there was a downstairs bedroom with en-suit and walk in shower.

Everyone noted how beautiful the manor was and how comfortable their beds were. The rooms upstairs were far from the living room and bar, so noise was minimal. The fireplace was a nice treat as well as a large, comfortable living room.

The highlights were the Aga, piano and the cosy bar, big enough to fit in the whole family.
The children were kept occupied with the games room and if anyone wanted to get away, there were TV's in most of the rooms if not the large garden, hot tub, books, games or short walk to the village as well.

Would highly recommend a car to get there and be able to visit the main Cornish attractions within an hours drive away. The walk to the village from the Manor was a good exercise but it was well worth the scenic route. The fish and chips was delicious, as well on the local scones and jams!
The bonus points was the local bakery (Cornish cakes) who made us a custom cake to pick up on the way and Tesco's delivered to the manor. There was a large tall fridge and separate tall freezer, so little hassle with the food.

Great treat for trekkers and in-house relaxers alike. It was a holiday trip the whole family enjoyed. Thank you for making the stay most welcome and making the whole process easy as pie!

p.s The kitchen is well equipped and the pictures didn't do the manor justice, it was a home away from home!

Exceptional long weekend at this Manor House

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the house with a group of friends to celebrate a 50th birthday party. The house was very clean and had all the amenities needed for a great retreat. We hired a local chef to prepare a meal and the house had all the utensils and serving platter required as well.

The house has lots of character and is perfect for in-house entertaining. It even has it's own bar/lounge area!

The weather was excellent, but a bit too cold to make full use of the hot tub, but access to town was very easy and a delightful location. The hill into town is a little challenging for some (at least on the way up) and the narrow driving lanes are difficult to naviagate at night.

We had all that we needed and had excellent support from the management of the property. I would highly recommend this property for groups and families.

Landaviddy Manor - May Half Term 2010

  • 4 out of 5
We had 2 families, 9 people in total, for a week at the end of May 2010. The house is very nice indeed and extremely well equipped. The kids loved all the rooms and the bar billiards table was a big hit...with adults and kids!
The location is excellent, although the lanes to the house are very much single track, but so are many in the area.
Polperro is a delight, Looe is very nice town with a good, but busy, family beach. We had a lovely day at Talland Bay, which was a very good find.
Eden Project was interesting but not really enough to keep kids occupied.
The ferry from Boddinick to Fowey is lovely and a real time-saver if heading to St Austell.
Overall highly recommended.

Great half Term February 2009

  • 5 out of 5
We are 2 families with lots of children varying in age from 2 to 13 had a fab Weekend at Landaviddy. The house was really lovely, even better than expected. The whole house was very clean. We all loved the kitchen - amazingly well equipped, even an electric whisk. The house was very spacious which was great for us. The gardens and views were beautiful - we had great weather and made the most of the hot tub.
Fell in love with Polperro - lovely places to eat and drink and great shops to ponder in. We took the children to a couple of beaches - Lansallos was the favourite - a real find. I had the best fish and chips ever in Looe. great holiday, We all decided that we would have to come back next year.

Polperro - New Year 2008

  • 4 out of 5
Our party had a fab time in Polperro celebrating my husbands 50th birthday and New Year. There were 15 of us in total - mixed sex and ages ranging from 9 -50! We found the Manor House to be clean, comfortable and well maintained (apart from some cob webs in hard to reach areas!) We stayed in Winter and no-one complained of the cold even though the temperatures outside were freezing. (Games room & bar/snug very cold and need some heating) Logs available for open fire (to be paid for as an extra). Kids loved the hot tub - adults were too shy - of the freezing temperatures! Some of the rooms were not as special as others and some of the en-suites did not produce a good flow of water for showering - easily rectified by a quick trip down the corridor! Lounge does not seat 15 guests comfortably - but youngsters sat on floor and we all felt lounge furniture & TV's etc could do with updating - personally we felt Lounge and Dining room should be swapped around to allow more space - but assume in the Summer you would not be spending much time in either!. Location is excellent - both for local amenities and sight seeing. Most nights we all walked into Polperro for dinner/drinks - remember your torches - and avoids the need for anyone to drive unless they have mobility issues as the walk back up the hill is very demanding - especially after dinner and cider!! We walked the coastal path,visited Padstow, Watergate Bay, Polruan and Fowey, Looe and generally chilled! The blokes are keen on mountain biking and found the terrain demanding whilst the ladies enjoyed hot chocolates and browsing the local shops very satisfying! Overall we had a great time and as long as you are not too precious over contemporary decor; modern plumbing/bathrooms and technology you will too! Excellent pubs and restaurants in Polperro - all very friendly and welcoming - Blue Peter; The Old Mill House; Couch's; Crumplehorn - don't take your posh clothes/evening wear - some good walking boots; jeans; fleeces and waterproof jackets will suffice . Nearest large Tesco in St Austell - only 13 miles but takes a good 40 minutes to get to - so good idea to stock up when you see somewhere when you are out and about - remember you are in Cornwall and life is at a very much slower pace - e.g waiting for flocks of sheep to move from one field to another; tractors etc. It's actually very relaxing once you adapt and accept.......Enjoy - we certainly did!

Christmas holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The best christmas ever in this house. All bedrooms good size and the hot tub wonderful even in December. The kitchen is fantastically equipped for 15 people and there is plenty of room in the dining room. Plenty of walks along the coast to work off that christmas dinner
If you have ever dreamed of being the lady of the manor for a week, this is the place for you!

This 18th century Manor is situated on the hill to the west side of the picturesque fishing port of Polperro with its restaurants and historic public houses. The village is renowned for its harbour, whitewashed cottages and independent shops - think pirates and smuggling!. The village has a fabulous choice of restaurants and Inns. Many of the public houses are famously olde and have true authentic charm. The coastal walks in both directions are breathtaking, and the Manor is ideally located for day trips to many famous attractions e.g. Eden Project, Heligan Gardens, and places such as Fowey, Looe, Mevagissey, Daphne Du Maurier Country, Looe, Lansallos, Truro and Liskeard . The Eden Project , Heligan Gardens and Knightor Winery are all in reasonble distances.There are a wide selection of beaches, sports and adventure parks and wildlife attractions to suit all ages and interests. A truly beautiful part of the world where you have an enviable choice of things to do and see.
