Higher Wringworthy Farm

Two charming stone-built cottages set on the Higher Wringworthy Farm near the historic fishing port of Looe - a fabulous location for exploring the South coast of Cornwall. Made up of The Old Barn - a Grade II listed, traditional barn conversion, and Spinners Cottage - a more modern, single storey stone cottage, they sleep up to ten people. Both are beautifully furnished, boasting stunning, exposed wooden beams and open, refreshing living areas, the two cottages make for wonderfully relaxing bases to return to at the end of each adventure-filled day. Benefiting from well-kept gardens and coming surrounded by picturesque, undulating countryside, sit outside with a refreshing drink or perhaps an alfresco meal and simply admire your wondrous rural location. Nearby, the coastal town of Looe is ideal for spending a holiday by the sea, a quaint fishing port with everything that you will need including a glorious, sandy beach and a stunning harbour which can be admired from one of the onlooking restaurants. The idyllic Polperro Heritage Coast comes nearby and is perfect for you avid walkers and cyclists, with the South West Coast Path also running alongside, this is an outdoor lover's heaven. A pair of thoughtfully furnished cottages in an excellent Cornwall location.

About the location

LOOE

Liskeard 9 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a Heritage Centre that recently opened in the Old Sardine Factory with a climbing wall and a cafe and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
