About Bar Lodge

A stay with a view, this remote hideaway perches just above Loe Bar Beach.

Bar Lodge is a dreamy place to spend a holiday. Perching just above Loe Bar Beach, you’ll be watching sunsets over the ocean from its roof terrace. And when skies turn grey, its contemporary multi-fuel stove in the living room will keep you snug. The lodge was built over a century ago by Captain John Peverell Rogers of Penrose and now hosts a spacious three-bedroom holiday home where sea views stretch from the high cliffs of the Lizard, to the Land's End peninsula in the distant west.

Approached on a winding track through the woods, far from any other dwelling, you’ll have this secluded stretch of beauty practically to yourself. Head down to the beach for a lazy day on the sands or go for a stroll along Loe Pool and its woodlands just behind the lodge. 

You’ll be in a prime location for exploring some of Cornwall’s most stunning scenery. The Lizard and Kynance Cove are less than a 40 minutes’ drive form here. The Helford River, famous for its links with Daphne du Maurier, is a 40 minutes’ drive to the east. Or for some local history, drive into nearby Helston for its folk heritage and beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture.

Please note: The beach below house is shingle and slopes steeply, it is dangerous so swimming and paddling are not permitted. Gunwalloe Church Cove, south-east is a popular family beach patrolled by lifeguards in summer months.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
