About West House

A converted comfortable house, with sweeping views over the Cornish coast and countryside.

You’ll love the sea views from this handsome semi-detached farmhouse, with BBQ and picnic benches positioned to soak up the scenery after a day exploring the coast. Inside, the comfortable and well-proportioned house has the same views from the sitting/dining room and two of the three bedrooms (so you may need to choose who gets which one carefully).

West House and adjoining Old House make up this old farmhouse, now converted into two holiday cottages in the tiny hamlet of Lansallos Barton. A short walk away from Lansallos Cove, West House has an enclosed garden, great for watching the sun set. With three bedrooms and sleeping six, it’s also great for small family groups or friends getting together to explore the South West Coast Path. Outside, the sea view from the garden with its picnic table is great for relaxing after a day on the beach, and up to two dogs can enjoy a holiday too.

Halfway between Polruan and Polperro, you’ll find Lansallos Barton and this comfortable holiday retreat. From the cottage, it’s just a short walk down to Lansallos Cove, through the atmospheric tree-lined sunken lane, originally a cart track used by fishermen and smugglers for transporting fish, seaweed and contraband up into the village. Once you’re at the cove, you can pick up the coast path and then link into a whole network of footpaths and walking trails, great for walkers and wildlife lovers.

Whether you’re looking for walks or beautiful beaches, this magnificent stretch of coastline is still largely unspoilt. To the west you can take in the magnificent bays at Lantivet and Lantic and to the east there’s pretty Talland Bay, once a well-known spot for smugglers to land. Nearby you’ll also find the quaint old fishing village of Polperro, and busier harbour town of Looe with its pleasant beach. Travel west to take in the magnificent headland at Pencarrow before discovering the village of Polruan, where you can cross over by passenger ferry to the bustling town of Fowey.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet 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 are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

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 kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
