Captains Cottage in the hamlet of Trelowia is a great location for holiday makers wanting to visit the South coast and be close to amenities and attractions but without all the holiday traffic chaos and noise of town.


Captains Cottage is a 4 Star Platinum graded holiday cottage located in idyllic rolling countryside just 5 minutes outside of the bustling harbour town of Looe, and 10 minutes from Polperro.


Trelowia's stunning countryside location with views of the sea down the Seaton valley will take your breath away and there are many amazing countryside and coastal walks within walking distance from the property or just a short drive away.


The peaceful, tranquil location of the Cottage means that it is very popular with star gazers, artists, walkers, cyclists, kayaking and water sport enthusiasts or those just wanting a sunny Cornish beach holiday!


Captains couldn't be more ideally situated. The nearest beach, local pub and Farm Shop are all just five minutes away by car, or alternatively you can walk and soak up some of those amazing views, the choice is yours!


The Cottage is light and airy and very well equipped.  The private garden is great for relaxing in with a glass of wine.  The off road parking for two vehicles means your car will stay out of harms way and you don't have to pay for expensive town parking just to access your holiday rental!
