We also have two Self Catering Holiday Cottages to let, Rowan Retreat and Rowan Cottage (both sleeps two).

Built in 1967 Rowan Lodge was purposely built as the village shop, then a few years later the shop was closed and Rowan Lodge was turned into a Tea Room to run along side Lanreath Museum which was next door, when the museum was closed down it was turned back into the village shop and post office, this was then closed and returned to a family home and the shop and post office was moved to a newly purpose built building just a few yards away. Then in 2013 we purchased it  converted it into a B&B.

Guests are invited to use all the garden which extends up steps to beautiful far reaching views across the hills with plenty of seating areas where you can sit with a glass of wine and read or just admire the view, guests are also welcome to use the washing machine and tumble dryer housed in the utility room.

It is in a pretty little village called Lanreath, pronounced Lanreth, the Parish can trace its existence back at least to the Domesday book of 1086, when it was known as Lanredoch. The present-day version is a derivation of the ‘church site (Lann) of Raydhogh’.

Lanreath is well steeped in legend, including the alleged sighting on numerous occasions of a ghost dressed in black driving a coach pulled by headless horses. Intending visitors shouldn’t worry though – he hasn’t been seen for ages!

The present day Lanreath has a population of around 500. The Coast is just a short distance to the South and the Moors to the North.

Lanreath has a Village shop and Post Office, a Bar and a Church which the present building – or the earliest part of it dates back approximately 900 years.

Lanreath is ideally located to explore all that Cornwall has to offer i.e.

Just six miles is the fishing port of Looe where there are many boat trips, from Shark fishing to leisure trips, or you can just amble around the quaint streets where there are many shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.

Nearby is the quaint village of Polperro (six miles), walk or catch the tram down through the narrow streets of shops, restaurants, and cafes down to the Harbour.

Also nearby is Polruan (eight miles) parking in the last public car park, with breath taking views looking onto the Estuary and across to Fowey, and to the left the Atlantic. On occasions you can see large tankers coming in to collect clay from the clay mines up the Fowey Estuary, and occasionally you will see Cruise Liners docking in at Fowey. You can amble down the narrow streets to the boat yard where you can catch a ferry across to Fowey, from the ferry you will see the famous author Daphne du Maurier’s Blue & Cream cottage from where she wrote some very famous novels and short stories.

Fowey is a small town, civil parish and cargo port at the mouth of the River Fowey. The town has been in existence since well before the Norman invasion. the estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour which enabled the town to become an important trading centre.
