Sweetness & Slate
Click to book Sweetness & Slate now: from £200 per night Tucked away in a wooded hamlet, with the river running by, this charming Cornish cottage is a quiet idyll of rural bliss. Featuring everything you’d expect from a traditional home – wooden beams, slate sills and a wood burner – it's peppered with floral accents that fit its cosy vibe. With a hillside and woodland behind it, here it's all about the front garden. A beautiful space, particularly in summer, you'll find a large patio with garden furniture, a slate chipping parking area and just beyond it a raised barbecue nook. It's only a short drive away but keen walkers might want to grab their boots and follow the meandering footpath through the woods and along the riverbank into the harbour town of Looe. Here you’ll discover fishing boats and a sandy beach, dine on fresh seafood and shop for trinkets in the quaint cobbled streets. And bring the binoculars along, we're told this is a great bird-watching spot. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Then wash the salt out of your hair before spending some quality time with your friends or family in the open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
