Partner and I plus pooch loved it. Could not have wished for any better. Secluded, private and idyllic; the property features a charming walled garden which enables your dog to roam while you relax round the (heated!) pool. The pool house itself is finished to an excellent standard, is comfortable and immaculately clean. Credit must go to Bill for being such a hospitable host.

“A Little Gem of a Find”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the The Pool House.
It is perfect as a base to visit all parts of Cornwall and is in a beautiful setting.
The Pool house itself is immaculately clean and has everything included to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
The linen and towels are of a high standard, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Karen supplies you with Milk a Tea Tray including sachets of Coffee, Tea & Cornish Biscuits. Also Tablets for the dishwasher etc.
The views of the pool directly outside are both lovely during the day and evening as there is lighting around the wall gardens which adds to the ambience of the garden. The sliding doors are lovely so don't block any view of garden and the pool. Also the pool has lighting if you wished to put those on. You are even supplied with flip flops and beach towels, also the covers for the wooden sun loungers are just in a little room at the back of the pool house along with a washing machine if you require it. The pool is set at a comfortable 27 degrees which is lovely. We swam even in the rain.
The owners Bill and Karen are absolutely delightful we felt we were visiting with friends. They are there if you need them but they certainly do not intrude on your privacy. Bill comes down first thing in the morning to uncover the pool so you can have an early swim before you leave for the day and also he comes in the evening to give it a quick clean up for any leaves that have fallen in and cover it for the night but he never even glances towards the Pool house whilst covering the pool which only takes him a few minutes so he does not intrude but loves to chat if you wish to engage with him which we did. Bill will discuss with you when you arrive what time you would like him to cover the pool.
There is heating in the Pool house if you should need it but we did not. The bathroom is lovely and as New England style with a large corner bath and separate shower cubicle.
There is an extensive file on where to eat, walks and places to visit whilst you are there in the pool house along with Games, Cards, DVD's, CDs.
We have visited Cornwall 3 years in a row now and this has been the perfect find it is secluded, beautiful, perfect for a getaway. The price was incredible and we would certainly pay more for this tranquil little gem and we felt it was under priced after other locations we have stayed the previous two years.
I would also just add the weather was not good whilst we were there which is unusual, but had it not been such a lovely place to stay we probably would have returned home but even when it was pouring we returned to the Pool house and swam and enjoyed our surroundings.
The Pool house is situated down narrow lanes but the directions are easy to follow and once you have done it as couple of times its easy to find.

Very comfortable, clean and modern. Quiet and peaceful countryside location which makes a good base to go see the lovely nearby towns of amazing Cornwall. Lovely and clean rooms, fully fitted and equipped kitchen as well as a selection of DVDs (if you are so inclined) making this feel very much like a home.
We do want to come back to visit Cornwall and if we do we will most definitely stay here again.

The Pool House was spotlessly clean and had everything you could want.
The owners were extremely helpful and on hand if you needed anything.
The swimming pool was lovely and the gardens were also kept beautifully.
Lovely break away from it all and such a beautiful location.

“Escape to paradise in Cornwall”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My partner and I booked the Pool House as we were looking for somewhere where we could completely relax and it did not disappoint. The Pool House is decorated to a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need. The homely touches really added to the character of the property and gave a friendly family feel. It was a pleasant surprise to see books, films and games available for our stay. We were able to take our dog at an extra supplement and he absolutely loved playing around the pool in the walled garden, we felt very relaxed. The location is close to both Looe and Polperro, however the cottage is secluded which is idyllic. There is a very pleasant pub 5 mins drive from the property. Karen and Bill were both extremely friendly and gave us the privacy we were looking for. Bill was also very helpful and informative about the local area. The main attraction for me was the beautiful heated pool, Bill came down each morning and evening to cover/clean this, so you can have nothing to worry about. It really is amazing, if your looking for a typical Cornish experience with a twist, this is the property for you. We will definitely rebook next year. Missing it already! Thanks again!!
P.S. Driving tip: Use Sat Nav to direct you through Pleynt to get to cottage, use the Jubilee Pub postcode, follow the road past the pub on your right and you will find a small sign showing Trefanny Hill, take this turning. Enjoy!

My wife and I stayed here the last week of June and will definitely be booking for next year . The pool house is in a secluded location but within easy reach of Looe town and fantastic views .The accommodation is of an extremely high standard and has everything you need including flip flops for use around the heated pool .

The owners are very friendly and if you do need anything you only have to ask .

A top holiday , even better that we had the sunshine 10/ 10
