Make a holiday rental home or cottage in South East Cornwall, England your home away from home

South East Cornwall has fewer attractions for water sports enthusiasts than other parts of the region, as many of the beaches in this part of the county are more shingle than sand. In its place lies a fascinating history of smugglers and pirates, some of the UK’s finest coastal walks and scenic routes, and the quaint fishing towns and rural villages that perfectly sum up the unique Cornish lifestyle. Those looking for a truly authentic, peaceful and beautiful break far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life should genuinely consider a week or two in this blissful region of Cornwall.

The south east of the county is all about exploring, and much of this can be done on foot. Looe is a great place to start, as it lies at the heart of the region, and offers good connections to other areas of interest, such as Polperro.

Well presented and comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

5 of 5
Sheviock is in the "forgotten corner" of Cornwall. The Rame peninsular is easily missed having crossed the Tamar in to Cornwall on the A38. The closest shop is in Crafthole some 3/4 mile away. Torpoint is the main shopping centre. Being a peninsular there are many waterfronts and interesting places; our favourite was Kingsand and Cawsand. The Rivers Tamar and Lynher, with many inlets, make it a long way round by road to Plymouth but the day is saved by the ferry from Torpoint. Looe is only 10mile/20min. away Tawny Cottage is a modern conversion of an old farm building and is ideal for a couple(although sleeps 4); one bathroom/toilet is only a problem if every one wants to use at the same time. The open kitchen/living area was not a problem(for two of us) and all facilities were available including a freezer which I do not recall being mentioned in the general description. We were lucky with the weather and the outside table and chairs were used in the evening. There was ample car parking space. We received a warm welcome from Mike and Tine and they were on hand should the occasion arise. We did not get to meet Frank and Doreen. Care needs to be taken when exiting the grounds as the gateway is on the inside of a bend and and visibility could be a problem. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend.
