The property

Curlews Cottage is a three-storey period townhouse, situated in the middle of the town, very close to the beach, harbour and shops, set back in a quiet courtyard.

It is situated in the middle of the town yet resting in a peaceful setting.

On entering the property you come into the open plan living area, with dining area, kitchen and cosy lounge with electric real flame-effect fire, perfect for relaxing in the evening.

Off the lounge is a doorway leading you up a staircase to the first floor, with a well furnished double bedroom and stylish family shower room with a large rain shower.

There is also an additional cloakroom on this floor.

On the second floor there is a beautiful double bedroom with a painted stone feature wall, complete with rooftop views looking out to the Looe hills.

There is also a light and airy twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds; this room is packed with toys, games and books to occupy the younger guests in the group.

Looe has a wealth of public houses, restaurants and a traditional fishing harbour, the second largest in Cornwall.

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

Another boat trip well worth considering is to visit the stunning Looe Island, a natural sanctuary for birds and local wildlife.

This small but characterful town boasts two beaches with natural rock pools, caves and woodland walks.

Enjoy a trip on the Bodinnick Car ferry to Fowey then head to St Austell for the famous Eden Project and Heligan gardens.

The stunning coastline and the South West Coastal path, which Looe is situated between, is waiting to be explored.

With so much to see and and do locally, Curlew Cottage makes 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 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.
