Type: Bed & Breakfast
Lesquite is an attractive 17th century farmhouse in a beautiful and peaceful wooded valley between Looe & Polperro and Fowey. We are bounded on one side by a tributary of the River Fowey which meanders along the wilder edge of our garden and then down through the woods and on to the sea. Lesquite is a haven of peace, "a little bit of heaven on earth".
We offer you a superb bed and breakfast break in one of our two unique large self contained luxury garden apartments; Menabilly and Neptune. These are both with sublimely comfortable double/twin zip & link beds and a kitchenette with fridge and hotplates for a more flexible alternative break. Neptune has a luxury wet room and Menabilly a top of the range bathroom suite and shower. You can relax in the really comfortable armchairs and watch the flat screen television or wander through the French doors onto your private patio overlooking the garden. Both apartments have a flat entrance from the decking so are suitable for all guests including those with mobility issues. We have a lovely breakfast room within the farmhouse where you can enjoy an excellent selection of traditional Cornish fare, including local bacon, our local produced sausages and our freshly laid free range eggs. Whatever your requirements, there will be a wide range of cereals, fresh fruit, homemade preserves, coffee, tea and herbal teas to choose from for that perfect start to the day. Sit and enjoy your breakfast in this attractive room with exposed beams and French doors leading onto a sunny patio overlooking our woodlands. On sunny mornings, the scent of the flowers comes in - as does a bold cock pheasant especially if he wants breakfast.
Lesquite, pronounced Less-quite and meaning "home at the end of a wood", nestles at the end of our farm drive in the midst of beautiful Cornish countryside, and is an organic working farm. The gardens are informal with lots of bulbs, trees and roses. We have tried to make it wildlife friendly, and you can see butterflies and moths and imagine badgers, foxes and otters peeping through the undergrowth. Buzzards, barn owls and tawny owls live here, and moorhens and mallard hatch their eggs near the pond. Having planted over a thousand crocus bulbs, we really look forward to the spectacular Spring colour.
We are within easy reach of Fowey, Polperro, Looe, St Austell, and the historic cities of Plymouth, and Truro. The famous Eden Project is just 35 minutes away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan 45 minutes. Walking in the area is spectacular with dramatic walks on the South West Coastal Footpath or across the beautiful Cornish countryside
