    • “A very well equipped cosy cottage and super location though Saturday night was rather noisy being next to taxi rank! We loved Looe and didn’t want to leave.”

    Mrs Bodian, Guildford, October 2018

    • “Absolutley lovely property perfectly located close to all amenities. Very well maintained and the owner has taken the time to leave lots of useful information on things to do around the area. Add to this dog friendly and this is the ideal base for a family to enjoy Looe. We'll certainly be booking again :)”

    Mr Walker, Kingston Upon Hull, September 2018

    • “Great cottage in excellent location. Superb views of the harbour and river and only a short walk from all amenities. Was a little concerned that it may be a bit noisy being so central - but not at all - perfectly peaceful and totally chilled out. First time I have used helpful holidays and they lived up to their name when I needed to change my booking after already confirming! Property owner was also extremely helpful and contacted us to ensure all was OK. Would definitely use helpful holidays again and am already considering a return to the same property next year - wish I was back there now!”

    Mr Gothard, KNARESBOROUGH, August 2018

    • “House on a very busy road, great for access (buses and taxis stop directly outside...) Bus to Plymouth and Polperro run regularly... sadly less good for peace and sleep. Kitchen very compact... best for those who plan to mainly eat out. If travelling by car allow £5.50 extra per day parking (2018 prices) space usually available in the large Millpool car park a short (5-10 minute) walk into West Looe - can be paid by phone for the whole week if you plan to leave the car there and discover the local area by foot, bus and train (regular service e.g. to Liskeard). Nice walk through the local town (shops/cafes/pubs are very dog friendly and cater well for alternative diets e.g. gluten free) to the sandy beach, just past that a rocky beach where dogs can run and play.”

    Mr Johnson, Hereford, August 2018

    • “Lovely clean accommodation with large bright double rooms at front and smaller bunkbed room at back. Excellent location close to all shops, pubs, restaurants and wonderful views across the harbour and estuary. We loved watching the world go by from the sunny balcony in the evenings before going out to enjoy the local seafood fare. Bus just outside takes you to Polperro and train station a few mins walk away. Can't wait to return!”

    Miss Wilson, London, July 2018

    • “Well located was a lovely place to stay it was like a home from home will be back one day I’m sure”

    Ms Miles, Basingstoke, May 2018

Regional Information

LOOE Liskeard 9 miles. Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a Heritage Centre that recently opened in the Old Sardine Factory with a climbing wall and a cafe and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
