The property

Located in the centre of the small town and fishing port of Looe, this cosy first floor flat is just a few minutes’ away from the beach and amenities.

Being so close to the railway station offers you a chance to leave the car at home and arrive by train on the scenic Looe Valley line along the beautiful riverside track which connects from the main line at Liskeard.

When arriving in Looe you will find the flat hidden away behind the Black Swan pub, one of the most popular in the town.

You enter the apartment after climbing a small flight of steps where a pretty shared garden takes you in through the door to the open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Completing the accommodation is a double bedroom opposite the bathroom.

A patio is right outside the door and opposite the pretty shared courtyard offering relaxation at the end of a day after spending time on the beach.

It’s well worth visiting the harbour to watch the fishing boats come in unloading their catches, indeed local fish can be found on the menus of many local restaurants.

If you want to try your hand yourself there are plenty of boating and fishing trips available from the harbour during the season.

Another boat trip well worth considering is to visit the beautiful Looe Island, a natural sanctuary for birds, with two beaches, a natural rock swimming pool, caves and woodland walks to explore.

With the stunning coastline waiting to be explored and so much to see and do around Looe itself makes this an ideal destination whatever the time of year.

About the location

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 discovery centre, and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beachy 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.
