    “Everything about Colona met my expectations except the claim that there was sufficient parking for a small car.”

    I feel that this claim was ambitious!! The only car that could comfortably park in the front of the cottage would be a Fiat 500 or equivalent sized car. The neighbour on one side approached us on arrival and pointed us to the nearest car park! She obviously did not want us to park there, she was very pedantic about the perimeter of her property. The neighbour the other side had a large 4x4 which overhung Colona"s parking area. My husband has asthma problems so it was no joke climbing the ...

    I feel that this claim was ambitious!! The only car that could comfortably park in the front of the cottage would be a Fiat 500 or equivalent sized car. The neighbour on one side approached us on arrival and pointed us to the nearest car park! She obviously did not want us to park there, she was very pedantic about the perimeter of her property. The neighbour the other side had a large 4x4 which overhung Colona"s parking area. My husband has asthma problems so it was no joke climbing the hill every day from the car park. I hasten to add that while we were there the weather was fine so walking from the car park wasn't too bad, if the weather had been inclement then the experience would have been altogether different. It was such a shame as the cottage was lovely, I really couldn't fault it in any way. The parking needs sorting out and advertised more clearly. I read the Guests Book the evening before I left and most of the guests there had the same experiences. Another common comment was about noisy neighbours, I can confirm that!!! One guest had to buy ear plugs to prevent being woken up at 5.30am! I do hope this helps with your advertising and in turn helps future guests.

The property

This cosy, beautifully-furnished, old terraced cottage is set on the famous West Looe Hill in a conservation area, which meanders down to the harbour of the twin towns of West and East Looe.

This delightful cottage is perfectly located for families or couples looking to tour the stunning South East coast of Cornwall with the numerous coves and fishing villages that the county is famous for.

The homely, cosy feel is felt the moment you enter this lovely cottage which is full of character, with low ceilings and steep stairs.

You enter into the relaxing sitting room which leads to the kitchen with a dining area.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor where the delightful double bedroom and bathroom are located you will notice the maritime theme that is evident throughout.

Finally it’s a climb up a steep set of stairs to the second floor to the twin bedroom.

Outside go up some steps to the patio and garden, a real sun trap and an ideal spot to enjoy an early morning cuppa, or a relaxing drink at the end of the day.

Literally a few minutes stroll down the hill will take you to The Jolly Sailor Inn, established in 1516, it is one of the oldest pubs in the UK where a warm welcome is assured.

Head over the famous Victorian arched bridge to East Looe where a wide choice of pubs, restaurants and shops, as well as award-winning takeaways, line the collection of narrow streets and offer a cross section of dining options, before making the most enjoyable stroll back to the cottage.

A walk in the other direction to the south along the coast will take you to Hannafore Point with great rock pools for the children whilst you enjoy the views of Looe Island.

Once a holy pilgrimage the site is now home to a collection of rare plants and wildlife including a large grey seal population often seen sunbathing on the rocks.

With so much to do and see in the immediate area, and the rest of Cornwall easily accessed, a stay at this delightful cottage makes for a wonderful holiday or short break at any time of the 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 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.
