Looe 3 miles. A cosy Cornish cottage, attached to the owner's house, in a rural location just over half a mile from the hamlet of Morval, and three miles inland from Looe. Ideal for a couple seeking a quiet retreat away from it all, the cottage is homely and welcoming with a traditional feel. The sitting room has a dining area and an open fire, the perfect place to curl up with a book and relax after a day exploring the coast. Also on the ground floor is a kitchen and on the first floor, a double bedroom and separate bathroom. The garden, shared with the owner, is lawned with furniture, so why not enjoy a morning coffee whilst deciding where you would like to go for the day? This Cornish cottage stands within the Morval Estate, meaning there are plenty of walks from the doorstep in glorious countryside. The historic harbour town of Looe provides safe, beautiful beaches, a wide choice of places to eat, excellent walking routes, fishing trips, diving and a well-established monkey sanctuary. Further afield are miles of golden sand at Whitsand Bay, dominated by the spectacular Rame Head, the National Trust house and grounds at Antony, plus the lovely Mount Edgecumbe Park with fabulous views across Plymouth Sound.

About the location
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.
