This lovely 17th Century house built of Cornish stone is beautifully situated on the hill to the west side of the ancient and picturesque fishing port of Polperro with its restaurants and historical public houses. The village is renowned for its quaint narrow lanes and whitewashed cottages and still retains its old world charm. The coastal walks in both directions are breathtaking.

Place to visit include Looe, Fowey, Mevagissey, Lansallos, Talland Bay, Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Liskeard, & Truro. There are lovely beaches to explore, plus a selection of adventure parks and wildlife attractions for children. The South West Way coast path is easily accessible from the grounds. Fishing, golf, sailing, canoeing, and many other activities are available nearby. This is Daphne Du Maurier Country and the annual literary festival at St Austell is a must for enthusiasts.

About Cathryn

The Family bought this lovely house 15 years ago and we spent time there regularly. There is a yearly maintenance program and over the years we have restored this house to its former glory - sympathetically decorated, we ensure its in keeping with its heritage and at the same time modernising this lovely house to ensure it has all mod cons and is very comfortable.

Cathryn purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why Cathryn chose South East Cornwall

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 historical 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 15 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 coast and yet ideally located for a day trip to Eden Project or Heligan Gardens..

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.

Spacious, timelessly beautiful and yet steeped in the past

  • 5 of 5

Lots of lovely moments from tea in kitchen by a warm aga to soaking in the hot tub under the stars, from drinks by the harbour in the Blue Peter to the peace and beauty of the 900 year old church at Lansallos.

Fantastic family holiday!!!

  • 4 of 5

Look, the first thing to say is that if you are looking for a modern, spotless, luxury manor house, then you are going to be disappointed! The house is not modern, it needs money spending on it and a bit of love and attention. That being said, we had a fantastic time at the house. The size was great including the kitchen and dinning room, with plenty of tableware and cutlery. The grounds were beautiful and the hot tub was great. The great benefit is the bar area, and even though we are not ones for pubs, it was a focal area for us to all gather in the evening and have some fun.

The house is in a fantastic location with just a five minute walk to Polperro. Warning though that the walk back is very steep.

Dougie was great. He was there if you needed him, but never intrusive.

In summary, the house is good value for money. If this house was perfect, modern and spotless it would probably be double the price. If you can put up with tired bathrooms, carpets and decor, you will have a great time.....just like we did.

Great place to stay for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This is very large house in a very scenic place. Ideal for large groups who want to be together and bond. Bedrooms are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped (although none of us knew on how to cook using an Aga) - luckily there was an electric cooker. The well maintained garden, the BBQ area and hot tub are a great addition.

My suggestion to people planning on renting this place is to do a few groceries before getting here. The walk into the town center is fun doing downhill, but is extremely steep and arduous getting back.

The only other criticism is that although the wi-fi signal is good in the main lounge, it does not reach most of the bedrooms and that's a big problem for kids. Having some wifi signal boosters would certainly help.

In overall terms, this is a great place and I would not heistate in recommending it to anyone.

Beautiful property set in a great location with fantastic amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property for a family reunion of 14 and couldn't have wished for better accommodation! The facilities and space were fantastic catering to all our needs, a beautiful Manor House with lovely gardens to relax and unwind in! A great location to Polperro with ample parking at the house for all and a nice walk up and down the hill into town. We take away many fond memories of our 20 year reunion of family members from around the Globe in a house that made it just perfect! The service we received in booking our stay was exceptional with any questions answered promptly. Thank you again, next time we visit England we will be back!!
