Trecan Farm Cottages, Lanreath, Nr. Looe, Cornwall.

My husband and I spent 5 days in Ricann Cottage on Trecan Farm with our daughter and son-in-law. First of all, I must say how tranquil the surroundings were with rolling hills and countryside as far as the eye could see which gently massaged the soul. Janet was waiting for us when we arrived to take us to our cottage which was a small converted barn and which was very cosy and well equipped and, inside, there was a lovely cream tea waiting for us with fresh flowers in a vase on the table in the kitchen. Both bedrooms had en-suites and my daughter and son-in-law were upstairs, whilst my husband and I had the downstairs bedroom and there was also a cosy and comfortable lounge complete with a good size television. There were 4 other holiday properties there, but none of them were at all intrusive and, in fact, the owners are in the process of renovating another down a little lane which looked very promising. One of the properties was an amazing log cabin which would also tempt us on another occasion, so you really are spoilt for choice. There was also a games room across the courtyard where we had an hilarious game of table tennis and pool one afternoon! Behind this was a tennis court and a play area for children. The farm itself was what you would call a small holding which had pigs, rabbits, goats, hens, ducks and the friendliest sheep I had ever encountered! There were 9 of them altogether that had been hand reared and they used to run up to see you at the fence wanting a fuss! We were also told how much they liked bread so, needless to say, we fed them every day – no wonder they were all on the large side! In addition, there was, of course, the farm cat, Matilda and the farm dog – both of whom again were very friendly. They were also eggs for sale and, when we left, I bought a dozen for the princely sum of £2 – a bargain and they were delicious! Although we were inland, it was easy to get to Looe and Fowey, not to mention other local beaches and, in fact, we had a cream tea at Talland Bay (another one!) sitting outside overlooking the sea which was really lovely. The little café there had lots of delicious options, so it was very difficult to choose – a good excuse to go back! We also took our daughter and son-in-law to Port Isaac to show her the “Doc Martin sights” which was easy to get to. My only “complaint” would be that the signal for our mobiles wasn’t that great, although you could get a signal if you went outside and up the lane, or upstairs in the barn. However, that was the least of our problems and, in fact, at times it felt good that we were “incommunicado”! All in all, we had an extremely relaxing time with the added bonus of excellent weather! However, having said that, we would return in any weather and definitely for longer next time!

“Comfortable, pleasant and relaxing cottage”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent a wonderful few days with friends in this most pleasant and relaxing cottage. It was well equipped and everthing seems to have been thought of for guests. Janet and Richard, the owners, were very friendly and pleasant and not at all intrusive. Although wifi is available it is patchy (which wasn't a problem for us). We would recommend it as a great 'get away from it all' break and hope to return there and maybe even try one of the other great looking cottages.

“Peaceful, relaxing location with added attraction of farm animals.”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We are a family of grandparents, parents and a one year old baby. Riccan Cottage provided all that was advertised - and more! We received a lovely welcome from Mrs Pugh and an unexpected cream tea. She had taken care to provide what we needed for our grandson's stay and was happy to give advice on local attractions. The daily feed of the Trecan Farm animals at 10.00 am was great fun and there was plenty of grassed area outside our cottage to relax and enjoy. From the farm we were easily able to take day trips to Looe, Polperro, Fowey, the Eden Project and local beaches. Although we didn't go inside the other cottages at Trecan Farm, the whole set up was very attractive and ideally met our requirements.

“Perfect holiday cottage”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our family spent a lovely week here at Trecan Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and well equiped. The farm is set in beautiful rolling hills and is ideally located to explore both the coastal and inland attractions that this part of Cornwall has to offer. Janet, Kirsty and family were perfect hosts, always willing to answer questions and help with our queries. Our 2 year old also loved feeding the lambs, chickens and other animals every morning. We would highly recommend it and will be back.
