Treworgey Luxury Cottages

Duloe, Looe, Cornwall PL14 4PP 01503 262 730

We say

Situated in a glorious rural location, three generations of the Wright family have overseen the restoration and letting of these beautiful period cottages, barns and outbuildings, which overlook the green, rolling countryside of the Looe river valley a few miles inland in south Cornwall. We see a lot of places that call themselves 'luxury' that don't really deserve the tag, but these guys really have gone the extra mile to make the self-catering cottages scattered around their 150-acre family farm into somewhere that is truly outstanding, with big comfy sitting rooms with log fires, cosy bedrooms, well-appointed kitchens, private gardens and spectacular views. There are 15 cottages in all, ranging from romantic 1-bedroom lovenests for couples, through 2- and 3-bedroom cottages ideal for families right up to 4–6-bedroom places big enough multiple families or groups of friends, and they are all furnished and maintained to the same high standards. It's the sort of place that would suit anyone looking for a self-contained retreat in beautiful countryside not far from the sea, but above all it's a fabulous place for families and kids, with the farm's 150 acres providing fields to run in, woods to hide in and plenty of nearby walks and picnic spots. They also have a decent-sized outdoor swimming pool, tennis and horse-riding (they have a riding school on site), and they lay on a kids' club for when weary parents want a break. Other facilities include wifi, home-cooked dinners if you can't be bothered to cook, and all the cottages are dog-friendly. There is a good pub a short walk away in Duloe village, the Plough Inn, which does food and also takes dogs, and a multitude of walks you can do beyond the farm – north to the Duloe Stone Circle, or south down the valley to the sea at Looe; though to be honest Treworgey is special enough that we wouldn't blame you if you didn't want to leave at all.

Getting There

Arriving by car, take the A38 from Plymouth, past Liskeard, and at the next roundabout take the first exit into Dobwalls village, where you should turn right for Duloe. Go past the primary school on your left and over a humpback bridge and continue about 4.5 miles to thre village. Go through the village towards Looe and you will see a sign for Duloe Manor on your right. The road swings down hill and you will then pass Cornish Orchards on your left, take the next right after three sharp bends. Tworgey Cottages is a short way up the lane. If you get as far as the railway bridge you have missed the turning! The closest train station is Sandplace on Liskeard–Looe branch line, from where it's about a mile's walk up the hill – though they may pick you up if you give plenty of warning.
