The Experience

You’re a couple of fields from the main estate, nicely secluded, with only a small cottage next door. Easy to make use of the activities if you bring kids: forest school in the holidays, riding school, play areas, animals to pet. Or massage, spa pool and tennis for grown ups. Back at base you get your own garden and patio and shared use of the heated outdoor pool, lawns and orchard – plenty of space to loaf and play.

This is a super pad for groups or families with an accessible downstairs room and en suite. Upstairs to a sweet single and four-poster sharing a family bathroom and a twin/double en suite. The vaulted kitchen is a delight to work in with a huge pantry, proper coffee machine and long, sociable table for chatty meals all together.

Chuck some logs (unlimited) in the wood burner on grey days, order a home cooked meal to pop in the oven if you don’t feel like cooking or make the most of the great walks from the door.

Reviews

Just come on down to this lovely spot. It's grand for families with all the gear for children and babies, and loads of space for charging about, making dens and special holiday memories. Superb walking from the door, super little villages and towns to visit and an easy drive to beaches on the south coast, a little further for surfing but perfectly easy for a day trip.

Location

The neighbourhood

Stock up on provisions in coastal Looe (3 miles), it has plenty of independents, eateries, a sandy beach and cobbled streets to wander. There's a great walk from here to Polperro beach, 5.4 miles along the South West Coast Path, then catch the bus back. For beaches try Tallend Bay or the more spectacular Lantic Bay. Duloe village is walking distance for a good pub, The Plough, and a small shop.

Local points of interest from Holly & Andy Kyte

  • Walk through the country lanes to our lovely local village pub, The Plough, for delicious food and local ale and cider. Dogs and children welcome!
  • The picturesque fishing town of Looe is just 3 miles away. Stroll through narrow streets and step through ancient tiny doorways into atmospheric restaurants and pubs, take an ice cream to the safe, sandy beach or get your crabbing lines out on the pier.
  • A short drive away you can test your nerves at the action-packed Adrenaline Quarry where you can fly over a huge lake on a zip wire, brave the free-fall swing or leap from high platforms into the quarry lake! A brilliant way to keep teenagers entertained.
  • Inland from Treworgey you can explore the wild and wonderful Bodmin Moor, where dramatic tors rise above windswept expanses of springy grass, gorse and heather. See the old mine engine houses and meet the wild ponies or go wild swimming in an old quarry.
  • Less than 1/2 an hour's drive will bring you to the beautiful town of Lostwithiel, famous for it's array of quirky antiques shops. Meander through the pretty streets and pick up interesting keepsakes from the friendly shopkeepers.
  • Boat trips from our local town of Looe include glass-bottomed boats that glide around Looe Island while the skipper entertains you with local folklore, or mackerel fishing trips out to see from which you can bring back your catch for the barbecue.

Introducing

Holly & Andy Kyte

This is a family business and still a working farm. The outbuildings, all in ruins when Linda and Bevis bought the farm over 40 years ago, have slowly been converted into cottages. Daughter Holly is front of house now with her husband Andy, but Linda is still Head Gardener and Bevis runs the farm. One of their aunts does the home cooked food and cousins help out too. You're well looked after.
