‘The Walled Garden’, Trenant near Looe, is a charming cottage set in its own private pretty garden within a larger partially walled paddock, with views over the surrounding fields of the neighbouring Manor House. This newly converted ‘old gardeners cottage’ has been restored with taste and style offering comfort and homely tranquillity.  This delightful one bedroomed retreat is a perfect place to either explore the exciting delights Cornwall has to offer; the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, or the numerous beaches to name but a few. Or stay local, visiting the harbour town of Looe with its vibrant shops, restaurants and bars, plus its wonderful sandy beach, or explore the quintessential fishing village of Polperro a mere 15 minutes’ drive away.  Maybe you could relax in the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside, then stroll along the private road to the East Looe River watching the birds and wildlife on this gorgeous tidal part of the estuary.


Spacious living room with electric heating and wood burning stove.  Kitchen/dining room with double oven gas cooker, microwave, toaster, fridge with ice box/freezer compartment. Dining room with round table and seating for 4.  Utility room (accessed from outside the cottage) with washing machine, tumble dryer, large freezer and sink. Double bedroom with 4ft 6in double bed. Shower room with corner walk in shower, WC, wash hand basin, and electric radiator/towel rail.

Enclosed lawned garden with flower beds, picket fenced and outside seating with table and chairs. Plus further grass paddock that is fenced and gated within the walled garden which is wonderful for dog walking, ball games and even golf practice!

Jan was an excellent host with a lovely cream tea on arrival and a little basket of provisions was very welcoming. Lovely area and with little or no light we saw the Milky Way a lot! Looking forward to coming back in the summer to enjoy dinners outdoors!

Beautiful place very happy. Janet was a star.

October 2017

A warm welcome at the cottage , after a very short notice booking. The cottage was even better than described , very well equipped for our stay. Beautiful surroundings , with a safe ,fully enclosed garden. Although only a short drive to surrounding villages you get the feeling you're in the middle of nowhere once you step through the gate to The Walled Garden. A lovely welcome pack , and logs for the fire. Can't recommend highly enough .

October 2017

Perfect in every detail. A lovely pretty quiet little cottage. So peaceful. A real chill out retreat. The fresh flowers and cream tea hamper were a lovely surprise. Jan was there to welcome us and she was so lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. Will defiantly be booking this beautiful little cottage again. Thank you for a wonderful week away.

Attention to detail and thoughtful little extras for guests was very much appreciated. The only slight problem we experienced was from the smoke alarm which was fitted almost directly above the gas hob and made cooking or heating food a nightmare ! A pretty little cottage and lovely garden and grounds. Enjoyed our stay.

October 2017

We very much appreciated how well equipped the cottage was.

September 2017

The cottage is in a lovely setting, immaculate and has absolutely everything one would need. The personal touches provided by the owner included fresh flowers and a welcome basket with bread, milk, scones jam cream and biscuits. Such a lovely thing to do. Our dog enjoyed running around the extensive garden and it was lovely to sit and watch the birds that visited the feeders all day. I would definitely stay here again, such a find!!

August 2017

We both loved staying at the Walled Garden. Janet the owner was there to greet us on our arrival, showed us around the property, gave us a welcome leaflet pack and best of all a bunch of flowers and a basket containing scones, saffron loaf, a small loaf of bread, milk, butter, clotted cream and jam. The cottage contained everything you needed for a great stay and the cupboards full of cutlery, crockery, pans, oven utensils and cleaning products. Janet had thought of everything. The garden area was beautiful and we got to sit out in the evening (weather permitting) watching the cows and sheep. The cottage was beautifully decorated and had the best bed I've ever slept in. Only drawback was about a two mile walk into Looe along a very narrow and busy road (Janet had recommended not to do it, So glad we took her advice). A wonderful peaceful holiday in a rural setting.

July 2017

The walled garden was a real home from home, it was spotlessly clear had everything you could ever want in it and more. On arrival we were welcomed by Janet who told us everything we needed to know. The welcome basket was a lovely treat at the end of a long journey. The position of the cottage makes it ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday., with only the sheep and birds for neighbours. Don't change a thing about it, it is wonderful just as it is. We would love to come back and visit it again soon. Thank you Janet for everything.

July 2017

We had an excellent time the cottages is very well equipped and in a beautiful setting. Janet the owner is very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage garden is absolutely gorgeous and our dogs really enjoyed playing in the field. We will definitely be going back highly recommended

July 2017

The Walled Garden is a peaceful haven, very private and a good base from which to explore south east Cornwall. The garden teems with wildlife that will keep you amused for hours. Regular visitors included two lesser spotted woodpeckers, countless tits and a nuthatch. One day, there was a humming bird moth and there was a kingfisher just down the lane. Really comfortable cottage, homely and well equipped. Jan is the perfect hostess - there when you want her but not obtrusive and her welcome pack was appreciated.

May 2017

It's a lovely place to stay, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

May 2017

Lovely cottage with beautiful garden and access to a secure paddock area. Very quiet with fabulous views. Janet the owner is very welcoming and we really appreciated the welcome pack, perfect after a long journey. A great location for a relaxing holiday for us and our dogs. We look forward to returning.

May 2017

A lovely cottage. Small but very well equipped - perfect for 2! Met the owner Janet who was lovely and very helpful. A great little hamper with bread, milk, scones, jam and cream plus biscuits waiting for us on arrival. Lovely quiet location but only 5 minutes drive from Looe and 15/20 minutes from Liskard. You do need to follow the directions closely as it is easy to drive past (Janet say the sign is nearly ready!). Would definitely stay there again - please don't change a thing!!

May 2017

Perfect in every way , warm wellcome by owner , 10/10 on everything

April 2017

A warm welcome by Jan Elphick who had stocked the cottage with bread,milk and basic essentials for our stay. We enjoyed our stay very much in this quiet, comfortable and cosy cottage set in idyllic souroundings. It was a little dificult to find first time as we managed to drive past it and ended up on a farm track in open countryside. Jan Elphic found us and escorted us back to the cottage.
