Windsworth is one of the most sustainable eco-lodges in Cornwall. The Old Coach House is set on the coast of southern Cornwall, four miles from the fishing town of Looe. It’s located within Windsworth’s 70 acres of private wildlife reserve. The coach house is surrounded by woodland and meadows, so as you can imagine there is plenty to explore!

One of the highlights of this place has to be the home-built wood-fired hot tub, which can fit 2–3 people. Not only is it relaxing, but it’s also a good way to stargaze and look out for wild animals – especially after dusk. Use of the tub is an optional extra on request, as Windsworth’s owner likes to be sure that the wood and water needed to supply it are going to be used.

The land at Windsworth includes half a mile of a dog-friendly beach, so this is the perfect place to bring your pooch, as long as both of you are physically fit, capable of scrambling up and down the steep, steep slopes to the shore 300 feet below.

Their story

The owner of Windsworth has lived on the land since the 1980s, and brought up her four children there. In 2008, she decided to convert the unused old house into a place to stay for people who would appreciate the beauty of the land and the Cornish coast. Her aim was to accommodate those who’d like to learn about a sustainable lifestyle, and try it out for themselves. Read more about them here.
