    Plaidy beach is perfect for your 4 legged friend which is a 15 min walk along the costal path.

  • "Found the property and place a great place to stay."

    However the owners family lives upstairs and very noisy in the evening and early hours, had difficulty sleeping. Should have some sort of sound proofing from above or be more considerate to paying guest.

  • "Nice apartment in a great location."

    100 metres to a small beach.

  • "The Cheshire Cat is ideal for those who want to get away from it all based on its location which is peaceful and tranquil with sea views from the balcony, yet close enough to walk to Looe following the coastal path or a few minutes drive."

    The accommodation has everything needed to have cosy times. Our stay was in February, we’d like to return in warmer times to enjoy relaxing times on the beach, however our pet Labrador would be happy to return as soon as possible he loves the sea, highly recommend this holiday home.

    Good location as a base for visiting places around Looe - Polperro is a must. All in all a pleasant stay - shame about the weather.

The property

Looe 2.5 miles.

This charming first-floor apartment, surrounded by rolling countryside and offering distant sea views, can be found in the peaceful hamlet of Millendreath near Looe.

The Cheshire Cat is a contemporary and spacious apartment, suitable for a family or group of up to six guests wanting to enjoy a holiday beside the coast of south Cornwall, with the magnificent South West Coast Path right on the doorstep.

Step inside the apartment and discover a stylish, monochrome kitchen, fully equipped with all of the appliances you could need to create delicious home-cooked meals, which can be enjoyed at the dining table in the living/dining room.

After dinner, relax on one of the two sofas in the cosy sitting room, where you can enjoy watching your favourite shows on the TV, or head onto the balcony with a glass of wine and admire the sea views in the distance.

When it's time to catch up on rest, head to one of the three bright and airy bedrooms, consisting of two twins and a master double with a TV, all served by the immaculate, white-tiled family bathroom, offering a shower over bath, so you can choose how you prefer to get ready for each day.

Millendreath offers a bar and a bistro, as well as the small sand and shingle Plaidy Beach, just one mile from the property.

Join the South West Coast Path from your doorstep in either direction to further explore the south Cornwall coast; head east towards Rame Head Heritage Coast, passing Wild Features monkey sanctuary, the waterfront park of Seaton Valley, which offers a swimming beach and playground, Tregantle Fort and picturesque sandy beach with rocky coves and the medieval St Michael's Chapel, which stands prominently on the headland of Rame Head, while a journey west will lead to the Polperro Heritage Coast, encompassing the fishing port of Looe, split into East and West Looe, offering picturesque beaches and joined by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the river, picturesque Polperro with its magnificent harbour and museum, as well as its stunning beach, and further along the coast will bring you to the National Trust's Lantic Bay, a nature reserve and sheltered cove with Mediterranean-style white sand and turquoise water.

The market town of Liskeard is around eight miles away, with a great selection of amenities, as well as museums and other attractions, while the magnificent countryside of the Tamar Valley and Bodmin Moor are waiting to be discovered.

The Cheshire Cat is a wonderful base for exploring the south coast of Cornwall.

About the location


Polperro 5 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.
