Peace at last! Our coach house is located in a private nature reserve, on a wooded hillside with sweeping views of the sea.
The house is offgrid. That means you get the rare bliss that comes with freedom from electrosmog, as there's no mains electricity or gas. If that's okay by you, read on!
If you want a third bedroom, see The Old Coach House at Windsworth (with 3 bedrooms). It's the same house, with a studio flat as well. If you opt for the house alone, we won't let the flat out to others.


We have an old stone coach house that we have converted into a charismatic place for up to 6 people to stay, and at the same time find out what fun it can be to live off-grid.
You’ll probably find you can get a mobile signal (and we have a mobile charging point) but there’s currently no wifi (though you’d be welcome to call in for wifi at our own house).
Sleeping: we have a king-size bed in a bedroom downstairs; then there’s a sleeping platform upstairs with two double mattresses, for up to 4 adults (or 5 or 6 not-too-wriggly kids).
Heating: two woodburners: one in the kitchen and one in the sitting room (5m x 5m, and the full height of the building). In the other rooms, it's the warmth from the woodburner diffusing gently through the fabric of the building. There's no thermostat on the heating system, so the temperature inside the building fluctuates, depending on what you do with the woodburners and what the weather’s doing. Wood for the burners is cut ready for you, and is included in the price.
Lighting: Electric lights, interior and exterior, with normal light switches.
Showers/loos: we have a wc and a shower room with wc, downstairs, very close to the main bedroom. We provide loo roll, towels, shampoo and shower gel throughout.
Food: we have a tall fridge/freezer – plus, for your experimentation, a 1 cu ft. (zero-power) zeerpot to keep food cool. For cooking there’s the woodburner hob and oven - ready for anything, anytime (as long as you’ve kept it going). But for those who prefer it, there's also an LPG gas hob. We provide kitchen pots & pans and utensils, plates, glasses, mugs and cutlery, and washing-up things.

Dostupno gostima

You can explore nearly all of our 70 acres (29 ha) of undulating pasture and wooded coastal slope. We have earned the rare accolade of Defra's Higher Level of Countryside Stewardship, which means our efforts to help wildlife flourish in this rare and beautiful slice of countryside have been recognised and are being encouraged.
We also have half a mile (1 km) of our own seashore. But be warned: getting all the way down there – and back up again – isn't something for the faint-hearted or dodgy of body! First, it’s a 15-min walk down a steep path through woodland, and then a fixed rope on the last 50 feet to help you scramble down the scree slope and haul yourself back up. Otherwise, there are conventional beaches at Millendreath or Seaton; both of these are a 20/25-minute walk or 5 mins by car.

Interakcija s gostima

On your arrival I'll spend a few minutes with you explaining how the systems work. After that it's up to you whether you join us for a glassa or just wave as you pass our own house on the way in and out.

Ostale napomene

Children irretrievably hooked on computer games probably won't have any more fun here than an adult who can't live without a microwave and a hairdryer.
But if you appreciate the countryside and like the idea of sustainability, if you’re happy to play simple musical instruments, board games, cards and charades, are willing to polish up the art of after-dinner conversation, and are ready to explore the great outdoors, you’re likely to find that this part of the world is pretty good really.

We enjoyed our holidays at Carolines cottage very much. We had a large playing area for the kids outside and a lot of fun with Carolines music instruments inside. The location with the view to the sea was peaceful. Especially the kids made friends with the horses, the goats and the pheasants..:o). The cottage was closed to the beach, 15 minutes walk on the southeast-pathway - lovely. We had fun and heat with the woodburner. No problem. We would come back soon...but the way from Germany is to long for spending a weekend there...

An amazing location overlooking Looe, we loved the serenity, the botanical verges on the roads around Looe, and the place itself was neat and tidy, warm, welcoming and Caroline added a bunch of little extras to keep our girls having fun!

Thank you! In turn, I was impressed by your girls - not just by the way they brought along the food for our chickens, but also by their general pleasantness and good manners ... reflects so well on their upbringing.

Caroline was a fabulous host and has it just right. Upon meeting her it was like meeting an old friend, which made us feel comfortable from the off and felt assured that she was there if required but otherwise left to our own devices in what felt like our own domain. This place is not for everybody, Caroline herself will tell you that when you enquire. If electronic devices, hair driers, TV, wifi, all mod-cons are high on your agenda, then look elsewhere. If you want to down tools and dial out of the humdrum, enjoy beautiful views for miles, an assault course to your own private beach, long winding hilly walks through challenging terrain, stoking up the fire every morning to warm your freshly ground cornish coffee (and the water). If you want to while away the evenings with a game of backgammon, read a book and watch the sun go down then this is the place for you. If you have active children, this is also the place for them, ours (11, 10 and 6) certainly loved it and downed their devices happily in favour of a run around the garden, a play on the beach or a go at the labyrinth. A superb getaway from it all with a lovely host in a beautiful location.

(curtseys) Thank you, kind sir! Seriously, I flourish on carrots - and yours is a carrot par excellence. :-)

Carolines was a fantastic host, she ensured we knew where everything was and how to light the fires etc before leaving us to it. There is so much to see and do in the area, we walked along the beach in to Looe - which is highly recommended.
