About Polean Farm Luxury Holiday Cottage (sleeps 8), Looe

This cottage is one of seven unique four star cottages on Polean Farm in Cornwall. The farm is just 2 miles from a safe sandy beach and offers an indoor pool, indoor playroom, playground and free animal feeding, tractor rides and pony rides each weekday.

The space
YES – We are open and so is the swimming pool !

Also – we will be still providing our famous animal feeding , pony rides and tractor rides (but with adjustments to allow social distancing). For your safety we have also installed hand sanitisers where appropriate and we will be cleaning the cottages and all public areas to government and PASC (Professional Association of Self Catering) ‘Covid-safe’ standards.
If however we are still closed in July or August then please be assured that you will be offered alternative dates or a full refund. So please feel free to make plans to holiday with us from the 4th of July on wards.

Cornwall is the perfect place to holiday as we have plenty of fresh air and wide open spaces where you can stay away from people while still enjoying the fishing villages, beaches and the countryside.

Little Owls cottage is one of seven unique four star cottages on Polean Farm in Cornwall. The farm is just 2 miles from a safe sandy beach and offers an indoor playroom, playground and free animal feeding, tractor rides and pony rides each weekday. The Beautiful fishing village of Polperro is just 2 miles, Looe is 3 miles, the sailing port of Fowey is 5 miles and the Eden Project is 9 miles away.

Named after the owls that still lived in the nesting boxes around the building, and that can sometimes be heard at night, Little Owls is a modern barn conversion. It is set in its own private lawned garden where a decked patio with garden furniture and barbeque area offers glorious views across the farm and towards the village of Pelynt (the garden is fenced , so there are no sharp drops for toddlers). Little Owls is surrounded by fields full of horses (and often rabbits and other animals and birds), so you will definitely feel like you are on a farm.
Little Owls stands apart from the farm house and the other cottages at the farm , but has access from the garden into the children’s play areas. Little Owls is approached by its own gravelled drive and has parking for several cars. The cottage has three bedrooms on the ground floor, each with its own bathroom or shower-room. Upstairs, the separate fully fitted kitchen is ideal for family breakfasts, and in the lounge/dining area, furnished with sumptuous brown leather sofas and a cosy wood-burner, the dining area is perfect for relaxed evening meals.

Little Owls can accommodate up to six people, plus two additional children or babies on fold away toddler beds or in a cot. The cost of the extra beds (with bedding) and cots (please bring your own cot bedding) will be included in the price and there is space for these in either bedroom one or two.
PLEASE NOTE: That the cottage can only accommodate a maximum of 6 adults (plus two additional children).

Stay for a week and get a free welcome hamper of Cornish Goodies.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to explore the farm and can visit the horses in our on-site livery yard.

Guests at the farm also get free use of an indoor heated swimming pool just three miles from the farm (on the road into Looe).

Open eleven months of the year (it is closed in August) , the pool is fully heated and air conditioned, with adjoining heated-changing rooms and showers. It’s perfect for families and children who want to splash around or those wanting to put in a few lengths and keep fit. Please note that due to overcrowding issues the pool is not open to our guests during the month of August (but the local beaches are !).

The pool is approximately 17m X 8m in size and has a safe, constant depth of 1.3m. There is a small toddler pool for little ones, who want a quieter area to enjoy the water. There is also a pleasant seating area next to the pool for the non-swimmers.

The pool is free to use for Polean Farm guests. There are, however, some sessions (aqua fit, kids’ swimming lessons etc.) which may involve extra cost.
Also please note that the pool is not available to use in August (but is available the rest of the year). Due to the current Covid restrictions it will be necessary to pre-book a 1 hour slot to use the pool.

The pool is lifeguarded at all times, however to ensure a safe environment for all under 8’s and non-swimmers must be accompanied by an adult in the pool at all times.

Please note that the pool will be closed during August.

Other things to note
Please book with confidence, knowing that if we are closed then you are entitled to a full refund or we can offer you alternative dates if you prefer.
If we are open but you are in lock-down or not allowed to travel (e.g. if you are self isolating) then we will offer you alternative dates.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions.

We normally only accept bookings for a full week (starting on a Saturday) during the Easter, May and Summer school holidays. However we can sometimes be flexible on this so please contact us to confirm.
