    We had a wonderful holiday and wished we could have stayed longer! The proximity of the parking space was very convenient. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Looe as it is so close to everything and is a comfortable and relaxing home from home.

    I’m so glad to hear that you had a lovely time Kay. Thank you very much for the fantastic feedback. I hope to welcome you back again at Curlews. Best wishes, Julie Property Owner

  • "Lovely house, lovely stay."

    We even had teabags, biscuits and milk on arrival which is a lovely touch after a very long journey. Only feedback would be that a baby gate for the top floor stairs (outside children’s bedroom) would be ideal. I was very uneasy worried that they may tumble down them if they awoke before us.

    Hi Rebecca, many thanks for your feedback. I'm so glad that you had a good time at Curlews. That's a good suggestion regarding the stairgate, I will order one. Best wishes, Julie Property Owner

  • "The cottage was perfect, it had everything we needed and more."

    Brilliant position, cosy and well designed. It didn’t worry us but there are only comfy chairs for 4 people. Really close to the beach and the shops. Lovely little cottage.

  • "Looe is really lovely."

    Curlews is in a central position in the town with parking as a bonus. A few steps to the quay, beach and town. Some noise late evening and early morning. We found the cottage comfortable and nicely furnished and equipped.

    Overwhelming accommodation we didn’t need to take half the stuff we did as it was already in the cottage available!!! Complete with little touches like welcoming gifts such as coffee, milk, biscuits! Fantastic service from start to finish!

  • "The cottage was beautiful and as described."

    The washing machine and tumble dryer were a godsend with 3 children and wet weather! The duvets and pillows were all duck and down, and the heating was efficient (we had snow so it was needed!) Would love to be welcomed back later in the year.

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 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.
