    “Amazing view across the harbour”

    Arrived at the cottage and was lucky enough to find a parking spot at the top of the hill from the cottage. The hill down to the cottage is extremely steep and narrow and you cannot drive down, so ensure all you baggage is on wheels!! No problems getting in the cottage using the key safe, upon entering the cottage we loved it. It was extremely clean throughout. The balcony at the rear of the cottage is amazing and our dog loved running around playing. There is a BBQ available to use although we didn't as we ate out most of the time but also had a Chinese delivered one evening after being out all day, and I must say was lovely. Every part of the cottage has everything to make you stay home from home. The kitchen had every item of crockery you could imagine short of nothing. The bathroom was huge and the shower amazing. Its about a good ten minute walk down into Looe via around 85 steep steps which due to having a knee problem took it slow and was fine, but didn't venture back up we got a Taxi each day costing only £4.50 bargain ha ha. Down in Looe you will find lots of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops serving lovely food. The Black Swan,The Ship, and Harbour Moon were just three place we ate and all exceptional and good prices. There was lots of leaflets in the cottage which gave you chance to plan your trips out and about. We decided to jump on the bus one day and go to Polperro which was lovely, not been there since I was a child, so was nice to go back. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who didnt have walking problems, the elderly and people with pushchairs / very young children due to the very steep hill going down to the cottage and the steps into Looe, but you can always drive to Looe and park on the big car park. The cost to park here all week was around £38.00 but like I said at the start of the review we parked not to far away from the cottage. There is lots of places to explore and we will definitely book again. Oh can I just add that we didnt have any problems what so ever with the heating or Wifi, thought we would mention this as we had read it on another review somewhere that they had had problems. We had a excellent stay.

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 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.
