Reviewed May 12, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

It is a wonderful place. A well stocked spacious cottage with everything one might need. We travelled with our 1 and 4 year old. We had been there 5 minutes before planning our next trip. The garden is beautiful and the walk down to the cove an incredible thing to have in your back garden. Plenty more works to do of all levels and abilities.
We will certainly be going again.

Management response:

Many thanks for your kind review. We're looking forward to welcoming you back again. We're available all year with lower rates outside of school holidays and lots of equipment and toys for babies and todlers.

Management response:

Many thanks for the review. We've very glad you had a good birthday break! Blanches has hosted many family celebrations over the years for groups of 2 up to 14+ people. We accept dogs and we're fully geared up for babies and small children. The valley below the house is stunning but for beach access it's easiest to walk along...

About the neighborhood
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! <BR>
