Home / Cornwall / Talehay Holiday Cottages

Approached down a quiet country lane, Talehay Holiday Cottages are five stone built cottages set in some of the most picturesque countryside and unspoilt stretches of the South Cornwall coast.

The farmhouse and converted stone built cottages are ideal if you are looking for a ‘get away from it all’ holiday and seeking peace and tranquility or as a base to explore the many attractions of Cornwall.

Talehay Holiday Cottages include three cottages suitable for a couple or smaller families with a young child or baby: The Lodge, a bright spacious open plan studio cottage; Barn Cottage, a cosy 2 storey traditional character cottage, with oak beams, slate window sills and stone fireplace; and The Coach House, a light, bright detached cottage on one level with uninterrupted views over open countryside and fields to the rear.

For two couples sharing or a larger family, we have The Stables (June-Sept), a split level cottage with high vaulted beamed ceilings, slate floor, galleried double bedroom with views across the surrounding fields and a wood burning stove; and Owl Cottage, a cosy 2 storey traditional character cottage, with oak beams, slate window sills, and stone fireplace.

Talehay Holiday Cottages are surrounded by spacious communal gardens with lawned areas, ideal for picnics, barbecues and safe for children to play, and a large fully enclosed meadow. All cottages have their own picnic table and seating area, and barbecues are available on request.

If you are travelling with little ones, we have plenty of equipment to save you space when you pack; cots, highchair, stairgate, bottle warmer, steriliser, changing mats, baby bath, potties and bed bumpers are all available free of charge. There is a great playground to explore and a wide selection of DVDs, books and games suitable for all ages available in each cottage.

Our charming local village, Pelynt, has a shop, highly reputable butcher, good pub and coffee shop.  The nearest beach is a mile away and we’re just three miles from the fishing villages of Looe, Polperro and the beautiful Fowey estuary. Talehay Holiday Cottages are in easy reach of wonderful beaches, fishing villages, stately homes, famous gardens, coastal and inland walks as well as the world renowned Eden Project. Available nearby you can enjoy golf, diving, surfing, horse riding, cycling and many country and coastal walks.

You are actively encouraged to exploit their local knowledge whether it is for a special restaurant, the nearest beach or what is best to visit further afield. There is no problem too small, and they will do their best to make your stay at Talehay Holiday Cottages a memorable one.
