Polean Farm Cottages

Polean Farm Cottages Cottages, Farms, Self-catering

Polean Farm is located down green lanes off the Looe to Polperro road, just outside the village of Pelynt. The farm is set amongst rolling farmland and is less than 2 miles from the sea and a safe sandy beach. The 18th century former barns have been converted into spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated cottages set around a pretty courtyard.

All cottages are certified to Visit Britain 4star standard, plus we are proud to have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor for our consistently excellent reviews (these are awarded to just the top 10% of self catering properties).  

Children will enjoy the playground and indoor playroom, along with the toy tractors that they can ride around the new tractor area. They will also love helping feed the animals with the legendary farmer Keith each weekday morning and will look forward to the pony or tractor rides after the animal feeds.

Couples can enjoy a free luxury hamper upon arrival (plus other special offers – see below) and can look forward to visiting the many great local pubs and restaurants , the amazing countryside and coastal walks or just relaxing in front of a warm log fire.

Guests with dogs are offered a days free dog sitting while they visit local attractions like the Eden Project, plus there are many dog friendly beaches, pubs and cafes in the area (not to mention some fantastic walks)

Polean Farm is a working livery yard with over twenty horses. Guests are welcome to wander around the farm and livery yard and the fields to see the horses and our other animals.

Opening Times

Open all year



From Exeter, you are best following the A38 to Plymouth - then across the Tamar bridge. At the first roundabout go straight across (PS. their is a Waitrose just off the 3rd exit of this roundabout - if you want to stop for afew goodies). Follow the A38 until you come to the 2nd roundabout about eight or nine miles after the Tamar bridge (it is jut after a low railway bridge and has an American dinner just off it and a Shell Filling station). You take the first exit off this roundabout - following the signs for Looe (there is another right turn after about a mile). Once you get to Looe, cross the bridge and then continue on the A387 heading for Polperro. After about two miles there is a right turn to Pelynt (A3359). Take this turn. After three quarters of a mile the road bends to the right and there are two lanes off this bend on the left hand side. Our lane is the 2nd one (there is a sign saying Polean Farm , but it is just after the turn). Follow the lane for about a mile to the Farm.

We are proud to have been awarded a certificate of excellence for 2013 from Tripavisor.
