    “Elmbank is a lovely well equipped property, with good quality fixtures and fittings and fabulous views towards West Looe and the Millpool.”

    The lower end of Shutta Road is indeed steep but eventually levels out, the house and views make the uphill stroll worth it. We also found space 59 in the Beach car park too small for our estate car. However the Millpool car park just over the bridge is free overnight from 6pm to 9am and with pay by phone really easy to add an hour in the morning without leaving your bed! We would definitely return to Elmbank if looking to stop in that part of Cornwall again. Comprehensive user guide from the ...

The property

A spacious Victorian townhouse nestled in the town centre of Looe, on the Cornish coast.

Set in an elevated position, on the banks of the estuary, this property is the perfect base for friends or families seeking a seaside escape.

Step into the open-plan living space where you can look forward to unwinding after a long day, with the TV to provide plenty of entertainment for those quieter evenings, with a large bay window offering some of the most magnificent views of the river.

This room also has a dining area which provides ample space for family gatherings over a hot meal and a refreshing beverage.

Walk through to the kitchen area which is amply-equipped with everything you will need to set you up for a weekend in the countryside.

Follow the steps up to the first floor which has a super king size double bedroom and access to a family shower room, whilst the second-floor provides two further super king size doubles, one of which benefits from its own balcony area.

Each of the beds benefit from top of the range Naples pillow top mattress' for the best nights sleep.

Enjoy your morning cup of tea on the balcony and watch the sun rise over the river, with a good book to keep you company.

During the summer months, choose to dine alfresco with those estuary views as your backdrop, perfect for a romantic meal.

Tempting though it might be to spend your whole break here soaking it all in, there's a huge choice of things to do to suit all ages and tastes.

While you're in the area, visit East Looe Beach for a fun-filled afternoon on the golden sands, learning how to surf, swimming or spotting all the local wildlife and birdwatching.

For a spot of history, venture towards the Old Guidhall Museum and Gaol, a local history museum which dates back hundreds of years.

Close to the Polperro Heritage Coast, which combines with part of the South West Coast Path, ideal for keen walkers and cyclists.

Elmbank is the ultimate choice for a seaside break to the south coast of Cornwall.

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.
