Lantallack is an idyllic place in which to unwind. Beautiful gardens, with flower-filled borders and sweeping lawns. Sit under the Wisteria and watch the swallows swooping across the pond. Take a dip in, or lounge beside, our lovely outdoor heated swimming pool. Wander in May through the orchards or simply sit outside on your own patio, sipping a glass of wine, taking in the stunning view or a magnificent sunset at the end of the day whilst enjoying this haven of tranquillity.

Summertime, And the livin' is easy...
With Iceland apparently having discovered an inexhaustible supply of volcanic ash with which to fill UK airspace as payback for the cod wars, there seems little alternative these days than to travel to Cornwall to spend your summer holidays, and why not unwind in one of the beautiful cottages at Lantallack?
Self-catering and luxury are concepts not often found together, but in Lantallack's cottages you will find little havens away from it all. Firstly, the view. The panoramic I've gazed at for the last 24 years, and probably the only thing that hasn't changed in that time. It really is breath-taking, particularly on a summer's evening with a glass of Mâcon-Villages in hand, watching the swallows swoop over the pond for a last minute supper before bedtime.
Polly's Bower and Pippin Cottage both date back to the early 16th century. Each has a secluded patio garden with views across undulating hills and wooded valleys, and a beamed living room complete with fireplace. Tucked away down a lane teeming with Bluebells, Campion and Honeysuckle in the Summer, the cottages are in walking distance of a couple of good pubs and Landrake's village shop. The dramatic beach at Whitsand Bay is only a ten minute car ride away.
