Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Looe - “Shires Rest” - Family cottage in Cornwall with garden and magnificent views

125 sqm house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Dubbed “Shires Rest”, this magnificent holiday property does exactly what it says on the label; provide a tranquil and harmonious getaway for you and your nearest and dearest to rest up, recharge and regroup in the idyllic countryside.

The house has three beautiful bedrooms on the ground floor, one with a king-size bed and ensuite shower room/WC, one with two single beds and one with one single, these sharing a separate bathroom/WC. There are also several cots available for free and guest beds at a surcharge.

Head upstairs for the spacious lounge / dining room, boasting a vaulted, beamed ceiling, comfy, leather 3-piece suite, a 32” LCD TV, a DVD-player, a wood-burning stove and a kitchen area equipped with everything needed to cook up hearty meals.

Enjoy views from the lounge across the fields to Pelynt village and the children’s play area, and make the most of sunny days by soaking up the rays on your sunny patio.

This property is perfect for a family holiday. The environment is child friendly. The owner offers free animal feeding for the children (and adults) each week day morning (holding the rabbits and guinea pigs, feeding the pigs and sheeps, hand feeding the goats and chickens, and collecting the eggs). After the animal feeding he also provides a free pony ride for the younger children or a tractor ride for kids (and adults) of all ages.

Towels, linen and cleaning are included.

A car is essential and there is free, private parking on the property. Smoking is allowed outside only and parties are not permitted.

We love:

• The stunning scenery all around

• The spacious interiors

• The sunny courtyard
