At the double mini roundabout in Dobwalls village turn right for Duloe. Go past the primary school on your left and over a humpback bridge, continuing about 4.5 miles to Duloe village. Go through the village towards Looe. Having left the village you will see a sign for Duloe Manor on your right. The road swings down hill and you will then pass Cornish Orchards on your left, take the next right after three sharp bends. We are quarter of a mile up the lane.

"John and I arrived a week ago, me ragged and weary with work worries, he with a rotten end of a virus. We leave, sadly, but refreshed, relaxed and feeling 1000% better. This really is a very special & restorative cottage .. With thanks." VERONICA & JOHN MORRIS
"We are gradually making our way through all the cottages, our 6th one to date. I do think this one is special, so very peaceful apart from the odd owl at night and the sheep bleating in the day... Thank you to Linda, Bevis & their wonderful team who always bring a smile to our faces when we walk through the door, it really is a very special place." VALERIE & TONY MOULD, DEVIZES, WILTSHIRE
"What a fantastic location and cottage for a somewhat belated honeymoon! From the warm welcome to the birds singing to wake you in the most comfortable bed ever (!) this has been a week we will never forget. Though tempting to remain huddled inside we really would suggest at least a couple of days out -there's so much to do in only a week! Until next time..." LIZ& ALEXWILSON
"A beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings. We have done lots of walking and lots of resting! A fantastic place to bring a dog - he has thoroughly enjoyed himself! Thanks for a lovely holiday!" HELEN, JOHN & MERLIN THE BORDER COLLIE
