This heavenly hamlet of 18th Century stone cottages, each brimming character and charm, offers the perfect prescription for leaving behind the stresses and strains of the day to day grind and rediscovering the simple pleasures of rural life. All with a good dose of luxury of course!
From soaking in the breathtaking views over the Looe Valley and the pretty fishing port of Looe from your cottage's private English country garden, or the comfortably heated outdoor pool, to bringing Old MacDonald's Farm to life with egg collecting and feeding rounds, a stay at one of Treworgey's collection of 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom cottages is just the ticket for a spot of family rejuvenation.
Spread over 150 acres of meadows and farmland, the 14 individually designed and luxuriously fitted cottages are just a few minutes by car from the beach but offer plenty to keep adult and junior guests occupied for days on end. The heated outdoor pool with dedicated baby/toddler section, indoor playroom stuffed with Brio toys, outdoor play areas with sandpit, Wendy house, swings etc. plus animal rounds and riding school (from 18 months), never fail to delight junior guests. Whilst parents are just as well looked after with optional homemade dinner deliveries and pre-bookable babysitting, for nights out or just a couple hours in the daytime to allow for a few games of tennis or a romantic horse-ride along the riverside.
Each of the charming cottages blends Laura Ashley-style country contemporary interiors with modern luxuries such as flatscreen TVs, DVD players, Freeview (with Cbeebies!), Hairdryers, coffee makers, Ipod Docks (on request), WIFI (selected cottages & Information Room) and dishwashers, plus private gardens with BBQs, loungers, sun umbrellas and lovely valley views.
