One of five attractive barn conversions in this farmland location, just a mile away from the pretty village of Polperro.

This barn conversion enjoys a tranquil rural location in a hillside location. The fishing village of Polperro is just a mile away and can be reached by a country walk over the owner’s land and down a lane. Here, visitors will find a tidal sea pool, quirky independent shops, a choice of eateries and a small beach. A bigger beach can be found in the nearby harbour town of Looe, a gently sloping stretch of sand with good bathing conditions. From Looe, visitors may like to take a boat out to the nearby Looe Island, a marine nature reserve with a resident seal colony.

This stylish accommodation makes a great place for a couple’s break, or perhaps for a small family using the available extra futon bed. The spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is located on the first floor of the property and offers a light and airy space with exposed beams, TV, DVD, and wood burner, for which the logs are provided. The contemporary kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment and microwave. Downstairs, the bedroom with king-size bed has its own TV and space for an additional futon bed, suitable for a child. The property’s bathroom has a roll-top bath, separate shower cubicle and WC and the washer/dryer is located under the stairs.

Outside, there is a shared lawn area with outdoor seating for alfresco dining and guests are welcome to explore the grounds where they will find a play area with swings and a seesaw, as well as a games area with nets for tennis, badminton and football. Guests are also free to enjoy the wildlife pond and meet the chickens, ducks and fish. There is ample off-road parking available.

Lovely comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Very quiet location. Narrow country roads to and from but are very quiet of traffic that it wasn't a problem.

A lovely quiet location, but the walk to Polperro is very , very steep be prepared. Jubilee Inn at Pelynt is a good meal.

Clean, spacious and well maintained. It was very quiet and relaxing and was in a good central point for a number of places to visit along the coast both ways.

The accomodation was very comfortable / well equipped. Parking outside the door. There is seating out front which we used in evening to watch the birds flying around while enjoying a beer. Wifi was good enough to stream TV. Road to cottage is very steep single track which I hate as I always end up facing an oncoming vehicle ! And I did on several oRead moreccasions. Walk from pub is a test on the fitness - not for unfit people ! Really enjoyed accomodation but would opt for village location next time. Hide

Very peaceful setting. Quite a run to main resorts such as Padstow,Port Isaac, Fowey etc. Accommodation very well appointed. Very steep walk into Polperro.

Ideal location for couples looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway. If you want quiet holiday, Over The Hill is ideal.

Very quiet position, views to the sea. The cottage had character and was a nice place to rekax in even if the weather was inclement

Reviewed by Louisa 29th September 2018

This cottage is one of my favourites, it's open and light and airy but still manages to feel cosy and warm, the log fire is a must if its cold enough. The whole cottage was clean and tidy and the bed is nice and huge. It is a short drive in to Polperro,which is a jem in itself. If nothing else watching the cows each morning will make you smile.

A beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting, ideal to unwind and relax. It was comfortable and the wifi was good. We had some wonderful days, there is so much to see in this area. You need to be fairly fit to walk as the hills are very steep. The owners are friendly and will give advice on places to eat and visit.

Reviewed by Simon 7th July 2018

The location is fantastic, overlooking rolling fields to the sea. While Polperro is only a mile or so away, its a steep downhill so not easy walking unless youre fit. The owner is charming and helpful, but obviously conscious most people just want to get on with their holiday and so skilfully background. Super place and super area.
