About Moohey

Moohey is a delightful family property, a perfect mix of the countryside and the seaside, being in a rural location with lovely grounds and yet just 5 minutes from the beach.

Internally the barn has been converted to a high standard throughout offering comfortable accommodation for up to 8 guests. The main living space is a large open-plan, lounge kitchen diner, full of character with its high beamed ceilings and wood burning stove. The perfect space for the family to come together and enjoy time cooking, chatting, playing a game, or just quietly snuggling up in front of a good film with the warmth of the wood burner. The kitchen is well-equipped for those who like to cook and there is a large dining table to enjoy the goodies the chefs prepare!

Double doors lead from the living area to the master bedroom with an en suite shower room. This is a beautiful bedroom with king size bed and patio doors that lead out to the furnished terrace, a lovely spot to sit throughout the day. The family bathroom is also on the same floor. There are stairs at either end of the building leading to the further three upstairs bedrooms. For those looking for a little privacy, the second double bedroom, with adjacent shower room, is to one side of the upper floor, and to the other side are the two twin bedrooms. All bedrooms are beautifully furnished with quality mattresses and linens ensuring a cosy night's sleep. There is a fun mezzanine space that kids will love with bean bags and a table football table that converts to mini table tennis and snooker - hours of entertainment!

Outside is as lovely as inside with the large lawned area (secure for dogs), terrace area with seating and BBQ perfect for al fresco dining. At the top of the garden you can enjoy the beautiful views across the countryside to the sea.

Moohey really is a special spot, perfect for family get-togethers but also for smaller groups looking for a little luxury in the beautiful Cornish countryside whilst only being a short drive from the beach (dog-friendly all year round) and 15 minutes from the picturesque fishing town of Looe with its many shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Please note the lower ground floor of the barn is a private and unrelated residence and therefore we ask guests to mindful of noise transference. Dogs must not be left in the property unattended at any time or left to run repeatedly up and down the wooden floors.

Bewshaes is a popular restaurant in Downderry, just a five minute drive away and down the hill in Seaton are the Smugglers Inn which has a good reputation for food and the Beach House which is another popular eatery looking out over the sea.

The property is accessed on the flat of the parking area and has a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, therefore, it is suitable for some elderly guests and or those with limited mobility. Please feel free to call us to discuss further.

Moohey has a Saturday changeover in June, July and August. Although it generally has a Monday changeover day at other times we may be able to accommodate a Saturday so please call or email to enquire.

Customer reviews of Moohey

A great place to stay with family and a dog. We had an amazing time. Thank you

Lloyd - June 2024

Our stay at Downderry was cosy and a great way to bring in the New Year. The rooms were cosy and clean with very clean and comfortable beds. The kitchen came with enough utensils for our party of 6. We were able to get in touch with the accommodation manager with our queries and received a timely response and assistance. I would definitely recommend Moohey to friends and family who are looking for a remote getaway. Thank you again for having us Helena!

Jonathan - January 2024

Great place, responsive host beautiful location! We had a great weeks stay. Thank you Helena!

Mary - August 2023

We had a great stay, loads of space for 4 adults, 4 kids and a baby. Really well equipped kitchen, spotlessly clean. Great base for exploring Cornwall, did lots of the recommendations in the information folder. Beautiful, quiet location. Car essential even for nearby villages as on top of a very steep hill.

Philippa - July 2023

Wonderful tranquil space for our adult family to get together and enjoy the garden, the beach and the surrounding Cornish countryside.

Mike - July 2023

Had a lovely stay at Moohey, 4 adults and 4 children. Plenty of room for everyone and the games room was a real hit with the kids. Excellent accommodation and any queries were immediately dealt with. Great location, the beach and restaurant are only a short drive away. We hope to return.
