The property is in a hamlet called Trelowia, which is an extremely quiet, rural and peaceful location. The cottage is half mile down a country lane from the main road. The pictures on the website are a very reliable representation of this brilliant house and it is very well presented in every aspect.

The welcome pack ranges from the traditional ingredients for a cream tea to local produce of eggs and milk through to fresh flowers and it signals the intention to provide you with all that you need from your accommodation. Every aspect of your stay is included in the cottage from the very well equipped kitchen, the dvd library and player in the living room, the high quality towels and linens and the cleanliness of every part of the cottage. It has been maintained to the highest level for its visitors.

The cottage provides a very comfortable stay for any holidaymakers. It is warm and well insulated for the cooler evenings or for inevitable wet days. Hot water and central heating are provided to meet any needs. The beds and all furnishings are comfortable. The Wi-Fi is very good given the rural location of the house, allowing for easy browsing but streaming can be more problematic.

The location is a short distance into Cornwall but it provided an excellent base to explore many of the key locations in the county including the obligatory visit to Lands End. It is a short distance from the main A38 and A30 routes through Cornwall while being only minutes from nearby beaches. For a rural location, the main supermarkets are just 15 or 20 minutes away whether you want Morrisons or Waitrose, Lidl or M&S.

Over many years, having stayed in many self catering locations in Ireland, GB, Europe and USA, the Captain’s Cottage rates as being one of the best in which we have spent our holidays and we have no hesitation in recommending it.

“Very tranquil location, off the beaten track”

Cottage was well equipped and seaside themed decor was lovely. Good base to explore South Cornwall but a little off the beaten track and a car is advisable. There is a small outside space for alfresco dining which is quite private, although we found the sun goes off the area by 5-5.30pm in July and there are no views to look out on. The nearest beach is Looe which is approx 4km or 5-10 mins drive away but there are a number of coves along the coast which are worth a visit, we liked Portwrinkle and Talland Bay as they are unspoilt and have fab beach cafe's. Coddy Shack (on main road into Looe) does fab fish & chips and the best seafood we found nearby was at 'Trawlers on the Quay' Looe - their scallops and crab dishes are gorgeous. Overall a fab place to stay and visit :)

“SECOND VISIT - FANTASTIC.”

My husband and I are retired. We love to get away particularly to Cornwall. We have stayed in a lot of self-catering cottages over the past few years, all over England, Wales and Scotland. We came back for a second stay because for us this was by far the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Clean, modern, light, airy and comfortable. Great days out exploring Cornwall were followed by evenings relaxing in the Captain's Cottage with a glass of wine. All the appliances worked. The bed was comfortable. Great shower. If you have high standards and want high spec accommodation I can highly recommend it. Will be returning soon.
