Blanches is a coastal classic. A dream house and cottage with glorious sea views, set in a peaceful and secluded location in 2.5 acres of sheltered, south-facing gardens and surrounded by unspoilt countryside.

We stayed at Blanches for one week and all of us loved the very relaxed sense of the place. Although a large house it still retained a cosy feel.The views are stunning and the gardens a joy

About the neighbourhood
Fowey is a vibrant sailing town set around a beautiful estaury. Just across the Bodinnick Ferry you will find magical country lanes and beaches to explore. Most of the coastline between Fowey and Polperro is owned and protected by the National Trust. Lansallos is a dreamy hamlet set around a 14th Century church with a smugglers' track to the beach. Blanches is one of a small handful of private houses in the area with a view of the sea and its position at the head of a beautiful, almost private valley is second to none. We immediately fell in love with it and if you come you will see why!
