Welcome to Cartole Cottages
Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Cornish countryside you will find our six charming holiday cottages set in large open grounds…
Cartole Cottages is the perfect location for those who enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the countryside, yet the bustling port of Looe, the picture postcard fishing village of Polperro and the beautiful Fowey estuary are just ten minutes drive away.
If you are looking for an activity holiday eg walking, cycling, fishing, sailing or a relaxing short break to take in the sites and get away from the hustle and bustle, then we are perfectly situated to make your next holiday just right for you.
Our collection of six, self catering holiday cottages were converted from the original barns and stables of Cartole Farm which has been part of the Cornish countryside for more than 300 years.
Our well equipped, quality cottages are full of character, some with beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls. They are all well furnished with comfy sofas and beds, quality bed linen, fully fitted kitchens, flat screen TVs, DAB radios with ipod docks and WiFi.
The cottages which sleep between 2 – 6 people are perfect for families and couples. For young children we have a wonderful grassed play area offering plenty of space to run around and have fun. There you will find a play tower with swings and a slide, trampoline, a large climb on tractor and a host of ride on toys.
Although no longer a working farm we are bordered by beautiful Cornish farm land and there are usually sheep and cattle grazing just over the garden fence. We have a field walk, ideal for exercising your dog or that romantic evening stroll. The walk takes in our pond and seating area, which attracts an abundance of wildlife. Why not bring along your sketch pad or water colours and be inspired by nature, our living willow dome provides a perfect hide.
We know that guests sometimes wish to bring their dog on holiday with them, so we are happy to accept well behaved dogs in the majority of our cottages. Being set in spacious grounds we have plenty of room if you would like to bring your bicycles, car trailer or even your boat.
Cartole holiday cottages are centrally located for easy exploration of Cornwall and Devon, The Eden Project, The Lost Garden of Helicon, Lanhydrock House and many other National Trust properties. Why not visit the locations, which inspired Daphne Du Maurier’s and Rosamunde Pilcher’s famous novels and also where Poldark and Doc Martin were filmed. For those looking for more adventure, why not visit the Lanhydrock cycle hub or the extensive cycle trails of Cardinham woods on the edge of Bodmin. If you are looking for horse riding, Polmartin riding school and stables are just a short distance away.
This is just a taste of what we have here and on our doorstep. We hope you will take a closer look at our holiday cottages and we are sure you will fall in love with Cartole just as we did…
