Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages, Nr Looe

For a truly unique Cornish escape, this 400-year-old private south coast hamlet offers a winning combination of modern luxury and traditional styling.

Weekend Escapes


Tremaine Manor & Country Cottages, a private hamlet near the historic fishing villages of Looe and Polperro, Cornwall, has recently been renovated by hotelier and entrepreneur, Peter de Savary. Dating back originally over 400 years, the impressive original manor house, all 12 workers’ cottages and a brand new shepherds hut, are available to rent on a self-catering basis.

Set around a village green amidst the unspoilt Cornish countryside, de Savary was instantly drawn to the magical qualities of the hamlet and has overseen the renovations including using antiques and artworks from his private collection to furnish Tremaine Manor House and keeping the 12 cottages in a traditional style with the more modern inclusions of super-fast Wi-Fi, smart TVs and Egyptian cotton linens.

Also on site you’ll find a small shop for holiday essentials, private tennis court, croquet, putting, boules, outdoor play areas and a comprehensive games room. Want to up the luxe? Private chefs and mobile spa therapists can be organised.

The Manor House can be rented as a whole, sleeping up to 14 when combining the East and West Wing, which flow naturally as one residence to create a spacious and grand traditional manor house. Or the East and West Wings can be rented separately and become two private accommodations. The cottages sleep from 1 -6, great for families, couples, single travellers and of course 4-legged friends.

The shepherds hut has been hand-crafted to de Savary’s high specification by West Country artisans for two adults, and alongside a bespoke interior features a private terrace with an outdoor wood-fired spa bath, Adirondack loungers, teak dining table and chairs with parasol, BBQ and a fire pit. The hut can also accommodate one well-behaved dog, who’ll receive a dog welcome pack with bowls and treats.

Also of note is the welcome hamper, herb garden, logs for the wood burners, and, rather unexpectedly for an ancient countryside hamlet, eco car charging points.
