New for 2017/2018! A beautiful stone barn with private indoor pool

Follow the rural lanes of East Cornwall and arrive to the beautiful private setting of Little Herodshead, a stylish stone barn created for luxury stays in all seasons. Choose from two boutique bedrooms and two bathrooms, relax in the generous open plan living space, enjoy the luxury of the private indoor heated pool and explore the established grounds. Little Herodshead is just a very short drive from characterful Looe, Polperro and the sandy beaches of Talland Bay. Little Herodshead welcomes one dog to stay.

The Property

Set within the grounds of Herodshead Farm, Little Herodshead offers a first class opportunity to enjoy the luxury amenities of this extensive private estate yet the intimacy of a smaller party. The barn is set over a single floor and has been thoughtfully designed for holiday life with open plan layout, high beamed ceilings and a wonderful fusion of country barn chic with more modern order. Arrive into a central hallway and lead into the living, dining and kitchen area, the hub to the barn. Sink into the charcoal grey sofas and enjoy a long overdue catch up, pop on a favourite film with the Smart TV or throw open the double French doors and soak up the rural views. The kitchen has been fully equipped with all you could need and the nearby villages offer a tempting choice of local ingredients. The two boutique bedrooms are located at each gable end of the barn and have each been dressed to impress in the finest linens, designer furniture and relaxing ambiance. Two contemporary bathrooms complete the luxury facilities. 

Cornish Gems are delighted to welcome Little Herodshead to luxury portfolio of rural Gems

French doors lead out from the living space and one of the bedrooms onto a beautiful manicured paved terrace with wooden dining furniture for that tempting al fresco option. Dine to the backdrop of rural Cornwall with Deer Park Forrest and rolling fields in sight. Guests are welcome to explore the extensive grounds of Herodshead Farm (please note the farmhouse will be unoccupied during a stay at Little Herodshead). The garden is flawlessly maintained and considerately planted to create a rural oasis away from the hubbub of the coast. For the ultimate luxury, Little Herodshead offers a wonderful indoor heated swimming pool where guests can laze around on the pool loungers, take a dip before breakfast or wile away the afternoon with the children. The nearby coastal town of Looe is a short drive away and well worth exploring. Browse the curio shops, capture the perfect fishing boat images, enjoy a lazy lunch on the quay or sample the local ales. Polperro offers further eating and dining options or head to nautical Fowey for a day on the river. This wonderful East corner of Cornwall has so much to offer from the wild moors to the sandy beaches.
