Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Lanreath, Cornwall your home away from home

Lanreath, pronounced “Lan-reth”, is a village with a long and colourful history. It was mentioned in the Domesday book in 1086 and is steeped in local legend. In 1620 the local Punch Bowl Inn became the first licensed public house in the country and the building has been a courthouse, coaching inn and smuggling den in the past.

Lanreath has just 500 residents and it makes a great base for a self-catering holiday. It is just a short distance from the delightful coastal towns of Looe and Polperro which both offer charming shops, restaurants and interesting attractions, including their working harbours.
