About Cornish Holiday Cottage by the Sea - Blanches

Blanches is a superb coastal holiday home and cottage with glorious sea views, set in a peaceful and private location surrounded by unspoilt countryside. The three acres of sheltered, south-facing gardens are a mini Heligan with graceful lawns and secret areas to explore. Lying between Looe and Fowey, the spectacular National Trust coastline is a 10 minute walk from the garden down an exquisite, almost private valley. Lansallos Cove, an ideal swimming beach and perfect for children, is also within easy walking distance. The old fishing village of Polperro and the vibrant sailing port of Fowey are a short distance away. It's a magical place with an exceptional feeling of ease.

Blanches is a friendly and welcoming environment for families, giving you the perfect base to explore South Cornwall's impressive coastline, with numerous sandy beaches and hidden coves on your doorstep. As soon as you arrive at Blanches the children will rush off into the gardens to play while parents can relax with a welcoming Cornish cream tea. Blanches boasts unrivalled sea views and its position at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley is second to none. Be prepared to fall in love with this place - once discovered you won't want to leave!

The holiday properties feel like a well-equipped family home; cosy in winter and at nature's door in the summer.  Blanches Windsor is a spacious 5 bed farmhouse that can accommodate a family of 9 in luxury. Blanches Meadow is a charming holiday cottage with 2 bedrooms that can sleep 5.  

The Holiday Home and Cottage 

Blanches Windsor is a fantastic and unique self catering holiday property providing spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to nine people. The accommodation consists of a spacious, fully equipped kitchen merging into a dining area with a 'banquet size' table. There is a great wood burner in the beamed and expansive drawing room and another in the galleried hallway. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, a king, double and 2 twins. Three of which enjoy beautiful views down the garden and valley to the sea. There is a large shower room with WC. Downstairs, there is a small twin bedroom. This room is suitable for an elderly or disabled person who cannot manage the stairs - next to this bedroom is a large bathroom. There is an additional WC downstairs. The house is centrally heated and has wireless broadband.

For large groups, a further five people can be accommodated next door in Blanches Meadow, the original character cottage.

Blanches Meadow can sleep a family of 5, with a kitchen, beamed sitting room with an open fire, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Downstairs the accommodation consists of a 24' drawing room with a piano, a large log fire and a traditional bread oven. There is also a cottage-style kitchen and a single bedroom. There are a further two double bedrooms upstairs. You can sit in bed or relax in the bath and gaze down the beautiful valley to the sea and watch the ships going up and down the channel. The house is centrally heated and there is wireless broadband.

Blanches Windsor and Meadow, share the 2.5 acres of gardens. They have their own entrances and their own sitting out areas overlooking the valley and sea, several terraced lawns and lots of secret gardens to explore. 

Baby and Toddler Friendly

Cots, toys and a wide range of equipment for babies and small children are thoughtfully provided, including play pens and the little things that make life easier like baby monitors and microwave sterlisers.

Holiday Extras

The price includes a delicious Cornish cream tea for everyone on arrival, free wifi access, oil-fired central heating with unlimited logs for the woodburners and complimentary access to the indoor heated swimming pool at the family-friendly Fowey Hall Hotel spa.

Coast/Beach and Surrounding Area

From the garden you can walk down a beautiful valley to the South-West coastal path and its spectacular beaches. Lansallos Bay, a 20 minute walk down a smugglers' track, is a beautiful enclosed bay with good swimming and a waterfall. The beach is dog friendly. Children love Lantivit Bay with its big rocks to run around, little stream to play in and rock pools to explore. The beautiful historic fishing village of Polperro and the attractive vibrant port of Fowey are a short drive away. The Bodinnick to Fowey Car Ferry is a unique experience and provides easy access between mid and East Cornwall. It is handy when exploring the lanes and beaches to the West of the Fowey River. Most of the coastline between Fowey and Polperro is owned and protected by the National Trust.

Blanches is a magical place with an exceptional feeling of ease.
