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 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

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.
