After 15 or so years we decided it was time to return to Cornwall and, in particular, pay another visit to the Eden Project which had just opened the last time we were in the area. My wife came across Cartole Cottages in her WI magazine and it seemed to fit our requirements. Our cottage (The Old Stable) was ideal for two people, comfortable, well equipped and we have no hesitation in recommending Cartole - but you really must have a car unless you are avid hikers!
First return visit to Cartole since the new owners took over. Glad to say they’ve maintained the high standards. Place is always spotless and the welcome pack is highly appreciated. Great location for visiting places around Cornwall. Looe is great for eating but can’t beat the Crumplethorne inn at Polperro for top sea food, scallops are awesome. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, perfectly applied by the new owner Karl.
The cottage was perfectly situated within easy reach of lovely local beaches and plenty of activities for families. Everything in the cottage was immaculate, with every detail thought of.
Our stay in Shippen cottage was very enjoyable as we found the cottage to have everything needed for a relaxing peaceful few days away. The cottage was cosy and clean and the beds very comfortable. We were greeted by Carl on arrival and made to feel welcome but as everything (apart from the wifi) was perfect, had no need to contact him during our stay. The location of the cottage complex is great for days out. Will hopefully be visiting again next year.
We have stopped at Cartole cottages many times it is the perfect location for us. Quiet, safe and extremely relaxing. Near to many attractions, not far from the North Cornish Coast. The play area is ideal for children with bikes provided and many toys, a safe and happy environment. Coastal walks, beach walks, woodland walks. Nearby Downderry Beach perfect for beach walks with dogs allowed and wonderful flora on the cliffs, also good walk to Polperro from Looe on coastal path, with several beaches in between, and cafes hotel at Talland for refreshment. Not far from Fowey and within reac...more
Really nice grounds with an excellent play area and ride on toys. Very friendly and welcoming owners. The cottage was really clean and inviting with plenty of equipment. The laundry room was really useful also it had a choice if Dvds which was a nice touch. 7
