  • “I suggest you inspect this property.”

    The decking is dirty, old and tired. There is at least one loose plank. The garden area is overgrown so not possible to check if secure for the dog so he was confined to the decking area.

    The decking is dirty, old and tired. There is at least one loose plank. The garden area is overgrown so not possible to check if secure for the dog so he was confined to the decking area. The “view” is obscured by next door garden. Unless you have a small car, you cannot drive to the property to unload the luggage so you are forced to carry it all up and down a very steep hill. The mattress is very uncomfortable. The cottage was very clean but the problems with the decking (not discussed here) and the uncomfortable bed left us with little choice but to leave after 2 nights.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, as you did not make anyone aware of any issues before you left, we were unable to rectify them. If we may address the points made: * The decking is cleaned weekly, but it is due a re-varnish. This will happen when there is a free week between guests. * The garden area below is meant to be mainly shrubbery, but is perfectly secure. * The view from the decking is still exactly as the website photos - looking straight out over the valley. Whatever you can, or cannot see, from the neighbour’s garden is beyond our control. * As stated in the travel directions sent to guests, the road to the property is “steep and narrow road with a 6’3” width restriction.” Also in the directions is an explanation on parking above or below, and walking to the cottage. * The mattress is of top quality with an added deep-filled luxury topper, and we have never had a complaint.

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.
