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.

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.

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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
