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, 4-star, 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 two and six people, are perfect for families and couples. Our hot tub in its cedar wood cabin and our infrared sauna are a great hit with everyone. On a clear night what better than to view the fantastic array of stars while soaking in the warm water of the hot tub.
For young children and toddlers we have a wonderful grassed play area offering plenty of space to run around and have fun.
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 Heligan and many National Trust properties. Why not visit the locations, which inspired Daphne Du Maurier’s and Rosamunde Pilcher’s famous novels.
We have given you just a taste of what we have here and hope you will take a closer look at our holiday cottages, we are sure you will fall in love with Cartole just as we did…
