    “The main oven in the kitchen not working.”


    The drinking glasses clearly hadn’t been washed recently - we were the first guests to visit post Covid restrictions. Not even a simple bar of hand soap in the bathroom. The Reality and pictures on the website were very different. The cottage smelt damp and mouldy and uninviting. No effort made to even update any of the clocks with the correct time. Outdoor furniture could have been cleaned. No patio heater and we had to search for the parasol. In the end we didn’t even bother and left a day earlier than planned.

    - Mrs Hester, July 2020

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback which we have passed onto the owners. The owners who have recently stayed at the property, checked the oven and have confirmed that it is working. If you had let us know during your stay we would have looked at it then and taken action if necessary. We are disappointed that you found some areas which were not as clean as you would expect, again if you had let us know we would have taken action at the time. A patio heater is not something that we ask our owners to provide. We have visited the property since your visit and did not find any evidence of damp or mould. We are sorry you did not enjoy your holiday as you should have, we wish you had informed us during your stay. - Sykes owner relations

The property

With an elevated view over looking the tidal river of East Looe that flows through the woodland valley on its way out to sea, River View Cottage is set in tranquil surroundings yet within a ten minute walk into the cobbled streets, bustling quayside and soft sandy beaches of Looe on Cornwall's Riviera Coast.

A lovingly restored cottage with many refinements and tasteful touches, it is sure to be appreciated by those seeking a special break away with family or friends.

On the ground floor a pretty cream shaker style kitchen is perfectly equipped for all your needs to rustle up tasty meal time treats, and for those relaxing after a day exploring or sampling the cafes and restaurants of Looe, the sitting room is bright and cosy and invites you to unwind on plush ruby red sofas opposite the flickering flames of a wood burning stove.

Mealtimes can be enjoyed in the light and airy dining room where glazed doors open onto a wide balcony, perfect for evening sundowners.

A blissful sleep awaits on memory foam mattresses, cosseted by beautiful vintage fabrics that dress both king-size double and twin bedroom on the first floor, whilst a slipper bath adds an air of luxury to the petite and elegant first floor bathroom.

Outside in addition to the balcony with superb views across the river, there is a small sloping enclosed garden.

The much loved coastal village of Looe is popular with all and is a ten minute walk, its cobbled streets lined with shops, ice cream parlours, tea rooms and restaurants.

The harbour is the centre of the village where fishing trips and pleasure boat rides can be taken and the soft sandy beach is ideal for families.

The village is also on the train line, useful if you want to leave the car behind.

Away from the melee yet with all the ingredients for a perfect coastal holiday right on the doorstep, River View Cottage is an enchanting year round stay for all. For those arriving by train the cottage is but one minute by taxi or a five minute walk; drivers take care as the lane up to the cottage is very steep and narrow to negotiate but there is space to park a small-medium sized car.

If you have a larger car or are not a confident driver there are car parks near by, charges will apply.

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.
