Ideally located just minutes from the beautiful harbour town of Looe and picturesque fishing village Polperro. Set back from the road and a short distance from the nearby village of Pelynt, peace and quiet is easy to find here without being miles away from local amenities.
The Court is a well maintained and comfortable property, and is lovingly cared for by owners Tracy and Geoff. They go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is a comfortable one - with touches such as a thoughtful welcome pack containing goodies including a homemade batch of scones, a fresh baked loaf of bread and regional cider. These are best enjoyed snuggled up with your significant other as you enjoy the simple pleasures of a toasty evening in front of your wood burner.
For a little fresh air, venture down through the garden to the small private lake - and why not take in a refreshment from the well stocked honesty bar in the summer house, or bring your own and enjoy a picnic on the deck.
My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time here, as did our dog who made a couple of new friends in enthusiastic pup Poppy and grumpy little Meg. We were made to feel very welcome, and were left in no doubt that nothing was too much trouble should we be in need of anything at all.
I would heartily recommend The Court to anyone looking for an idyllic retreat by the Cornish coast hosted by two wonderful people - but only if we've got our next stay booked in first ;-)
I would recommend this lovely, comfortable cottage to anyone. It's in a fantastic location between Looe and Polperro making it a great base for exploring the area. Tracy and Geoff welcomed us and were fantastic hosts. Very friendly and helpful whenever we needed anything. The cottage was clean and had everything we required for a perfect week away. Our welcome pack was all the best! Gorgeous homemade delights and milk, eggs with a personal message for us as we were there to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. A welcome pack for the dog was a lovely touch too. Our dog loved the access to the fields and lake for walks and we enjoyed sitting by the lake in the summerhouse. A beautiful tranquil place for a holiday which we would definitely return to again. Thank you Tracy and Geoff.
The Court at Ashen Cross is a spacious, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The private garden area with patio is a lovely spot to have breakfast and watch the birds. Guests can also relax in the summerhouse by the fishing lake and feed Doris, the resident duck (a real character!).
Owner Tracy is friendly and welcoming and able to advise on local amenities and attractions, in addition to providing to her homemade cakes. Ashen Cross is only minutes away from Looe and Polperro and is centrally situated to explore the surrounding coast and countryside.
Having stayed at several self-catering establishments around the country, this is definitely one we are happy to recommend. If you are visiting Cornwall, give Ashen Cross a try.
An amazing little spot, Tracy and Geoff have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. They are so warm warm and friendly without being intrusive. Lovely cream tea and freshly baked bread on arrival with a well stocked fridge, barbecue was handy cottage is beautiful and clean, highly recommend
We had the pleasure of returning to The Court in June. Yet again a perfect holiday...peace and quiet to recuperate after recent surgery. A beautiful spacious cottage in georgeous grounds. A lovely welcome from Tracy and Geoff (the owners), welcome pack of cider,beer,milk,home made bread and scones.....also midweek home made cake very scrummy! The cottage is situated near to Looe and Polperro and other beautiful small coves nearby but all the peace of the countryside at your door. Towels were changed midweek and anything extra we needed we could just ask friendly,unobtrusive owners. We found the cottage clean and very comfortable, a home from home, with a lovely garden to relax in with barbeque supplied...we look forward to our return in September (already booked) as in 20 years of holidays in Cornwall this is our favourite by far!
The entrance to this property is on a very busy & bad bend of the road, The owners are next door and always seem to be coming out to you when you're coming or going yourself, The property needs a good dusting as there where lots of cob webs and a good sweep up outside is needed. Access to the lake and field is right at the side of the owners conservatory and they go right pass your windows to the shared wash room. We felt like we had no privacy and was in the big brother house! the property is minimal in many respects and in need of updating,we would not re stay here.
Just returned from The Court and this place is a little piece of heaven . The cottage is stunning and it has everything you could want and more . The owners Tracy and Geoff are simply wonderful and do everything they can to make your stay perfect . Take a stroll down to the lake and do a spot of fishing or sit and chill out in the summerhouse . Can't recommend this place highly enough but don't take my word for it go and see for yourself you won't be disappointed !
