About Horseshoe


Horseshoe is an absolute gem of a cottage! Beautifully furnished and completed to the highest standard throughout, guests can be assured of a comfortable and peaceful stay.

The cottage is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor is the fully fitted kitchen diner and large master bedroom, a light and airy room with king size bed and striking en suite shower room. Upstairs is the lounge area with views down over the farm and second bedroom again a large room with king size bed and shower room. The upstairs bedroom has a juliet balcony which affords lovely views down over the farm. Both bedrooms have TVs and there is free wfi and ample parking.

Downderry Village is a 20 minute walk down the hill and has a popular local pub with 180 degree sea views, a local restaurant. The beach stretches along the coast in both directions and has many rock pools to explore at low tide. The walk to the West takes you along the beach to the next village of Seaton where there are two beach cafes, The Smugglers Inn pub and a play park for children. There is also a nice walk along the river on the Otter Trail through the Seaton Valley Park to The Copley Arms at Hessenford.

Horseshoe Cottage is a peaceful retreat just a short distance from the beach and within easy access of the many delights that South East Cornwall has to offer. There are three acres of land that guests are welcome to explore including an organic vegetable and herb garden, perfect for ingredients for dinner, chicken house where you can collect fresh eggs and ponds which are home to the most beautiful cayuga ducks.

A delight to stay in any time of the year, we have no hesitation in recommending Horseshoe Cottage for your next holiday! Horseshoe Cottage can also be booked with Roosters Rest next door for parties of up to 6. One well behaved pet is welcome (please note that there are ducks on site and various farm animals nearby so you are fully responsible for your dog and ensuring that they are on the lead where necessary). The property is a mile away from two beaches that are pet friendly all year round - perfect for your four legged friend!

Customer reviews of Horseshoe

We stayed here for a week and loved it. There were two of us (and a dog) but is plenty big enough for 4. Really well equipped - comfortable beds, good kitchen, great shower. So peaceful.

Soozy - June 2024

We have had a great week's holiday here. We have been coming to coming to Cornwall for a few years now and this is by far the best accommodation we have stayed by a long way. 10 out of 10! Thanks Guy.

Rob & Dawn - September 2023

We really enjoyed our week here. Very happy with the cottage, grounds and location - a wonderful place to get away from it all! Beds and bathrooms exceptional - really luxurious! Great set up for two sets of couples.

Tania, Eric, Esmie & Danny - September 2023

Probably the best cottage we have stayed in anywhere, absolutely 5 star. We have had a relaxing peaceful stay, in this beautiful home, and the owners are simply lovely. Close to some great beaches and attractions to visit. It's everything we hoped for in a holiday. Thank you so much.

Kersey Family & Ben - August 2023

Thank you for this wonderful place and for having us for our Summer vacation. So much to see and explore. We all love your place very much and want to share, that Horseshoe Cottage is one of the best and well balanced vacation houses we have stayed in. Take care and hope to see you again!

Albrecht Family - July 2023

Really super cottage (and we have stayed in many!) Loved swimming in the sea, costal footpath walks. Thank you

Jayne, Harriet, Georgina & (Bertie - The Dog) - June 2023

What a fabulous place this is. Everything you could ask for, much thought and love is gone into Horseshoe Cottage. Beautifully clean and stylish d├ęcor. We come to Cornwall every year. I can honestly say this is the best cottage! Guy is such a lovely host. Archie loved the space to roam around. Beautiful views. Thank you.

Frank & Katie - June 2023

Immaculate, well equipped cottage in a courtyard, surrounded by fragrant fields, yet only a mile from the beach, shop, pub, restaurant & cafe. It was fabulous to wake up to the beautiful view and delicate scent of wild flowers. We stayed with our dachshund & it was great to be able to use the extensive garden, field & pond area. Guy & his family are lovely and very helpful. The area was fairly quiet and unspoilt but there are endless places to visit within an hour's drive. The beaches at Downderry and Seaton are spacious and dog-friendly. We loved our stay & wish we had booked for longer.

Debbie - June 2023

This property is set in the country up a narrow lane it is very well appointed and ideal for anyone who enjoys peace and quiet and views of the country. It is a great location for all that Cornwall has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend.
