When owners Alice and Trevor discovered this charming Cornish hideaway, the couple immediately fell in love with the place and it is pretty easy to see why. These two ading cottages have an amazing setting, nestled in a virtually private valley, between Fowey and Looe, in 3-acres of south facing gardens, with views over rolling countryside to the sea. The Cornish coast path is just minutes walk and a smugglers track le to the stunning Lansallos Cove with Caribbean clear water.
The horseshoe bay is idyllic for playing, paddling and swimming but guests also have free access to the luxurious indoor heated pool and tennis courts at the family friendly Fowey Hall Hotel Spa short drive. As if that wasn't enough to guarantee parental relaxation, there's a huge list of handy baby and toddler gear to make light work of packing, and a fabulous ready-meal delivery service from local company, Red Earth too Lansallos Cottage One is an original Cornish cottage for a family of 5, with pets welcome too.
The cottage is not striving to be super chic or boutique but the homely comfort, fantastic baby gear and dream setting make the cottage too good for BFB to miss. The 24' drawing room with rustic stone walls has a big log fire, traditional bread oven and a piano, a TV, DVD and CD players, plus doors that open onto the fabulous garden. The cottage kitchen is well equipped, with dining furniture for 6 and a complimentary Cornish cream tea is provided on arrival. Organic fruit and vegetables are available from the garden when in season and there's refreshing water from a private spring. One of the three bedrooms is located downstairs, which is handy for a napping baby or less mobile adult.
The glorious communal 3-acre garden is where the house really comes into its own, with terraced lawns and lots of secret corners for youngsters to play hide and seek while grown ups pick a spot to gaze on the fantastic sea views.
Everyone can watch out for a variety of feathered friends visiting the well stocked bird feeders and there's also a sandpit with buckets and spades, swirly tennis, boules and a croquet set. Lansallos Cottage One is a cosy 3-bedroom cottage for up to 5 people, plus babies in cots.
There's a single bedroom downstairs and two double bedrooms upstairs, with beautiful views over the gardens and the valley to the sea. Guests can even gaze on the view while relaxing in the bath! Wi-Fi is provided. Cottage one and two can be rented together to provide plenty of accommodation for up to 14 people. Click 'similar accommodation' button below to view. The cottages enjoy a prime and exclusive location in Cornwall, as one of just a handful of properties in the idyllic hamlet of Lansallos, with views of the sea and nestled at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley.
A minute walk down the valley le to the coast path, passing sheep and cows along the way, then Lansallos Cove is a sheltered horseshoe bay 20 minutes walk away where children can swim. The picture postcard fishing village of Polperro is just a short drive, with a jumble of cottages tucked into a wooded ravine, winding traffic-free streets around the little harbour and a notorious smugglers heritage.
The bustling port and yachting haven of Fowey is also just a short drive or the Bodinnick car and foot passenger ferry is a more adventurous way for families to get there. A short drive in the opposite direction, at the mouth of an emerald wooded estuary, Looe is a thriving harbour and holiday town, famous for it's fresh caught fish and seafood.

We get down to Cornwall whenever we can and spend time in Blanches, which is why it feels like a well-loved family home and not a holiday let. As soon as we arrive, the boys rush off into the gardens to play. You'll probably find a few of the dens they and the many other children who stay with us have made in the garden.
The goat shed is a popular one! We rented a holiday house in Fowey for six years after our oldest child was born. We love the area and often found ourselves crossing the Boddinick Ferry to explore the quiet country lanes and unspoilt beaches to the East of the Fowey River. Most of the coastline between Fowey and Looe is owned and protected by the National Trust or farmed by families that have lived and worked in the area for generations, including our neighbours at Windsor Farm. Blanches is one of a small handful of private houses in the area with a view of the sea and its position at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley is second to none.
We immediately fell in love with it and if you come you will see why! The properties are fully furnished and equipped as spacious and comfortable family homes. They are large enough for big groups but have a cosy feel about them. The gardens are like a mini Heligan, with graceful lawns and a valley garden.
It's a magical place that children adore. Our boys love to watch about twenty species of birds that visit the well-stocked feeders next to the house. The walk down the valley or along the ridge is breath-taking and wildlife spotting is popular. There is a wide range of activities for children indoors, in the garden and on offer a short distance away: walking, swimming at Lansallos Cove, sailing, people watching or eating in good restaurants. For a rainy day, we include free use of the swimming pool at the Fowey Hall Hotel and the world famous Eden Project is a half hour drive away for those looking for something a bit different.
