  • “Lovely little cottage in the heart of Looe.”

    Very clean and comfortable. Loved the barn door , bringing in the sunshine and holiday atmosphere. Some lovely walks , restaurants and pubs . The town was very busy during the day , better to avoid at lunchtime by escaping on a coastal walk or to the beach .

The property

This charming coastal retreat can be found in the small fishing port town of Looe in south-east Cornwall.

The Boat House is a lovely property found in the heart of this bustling settlement, in reach of countless amenities.

Enter into the property and discover a modest but beautifully presented and coastal themed interior of the open-plan living space, offering a tranquil spot to wind down in after a busy day.

Step across the natural wood floor and relax on the grey striped sofa with the window offering the last sunlight of the day as it turns to evening, you can pop open a bottle of something cold from the fridge and toast to your holiday.

Prepare a home-cooked meal in the kitchen area which continues with the bright and light theme, housing an electric oven and hob, a microwave and a fridge, with a washing machine cleverly tucked underneath the breakfast bar for two, it holds everything you need.

Ascend the standout spiral staircase up to the bedroom when the night draws in to discover the double bed, all beautifully presented and offering a harmonious ambiance.

Enjoy waking up and stepping into the en-suite shower room to prepare for the day within this stylish and well-fitted room.

Walk the short distance to East Looe Beach and choose a spot to set up camp on a sunny day, with the sloping sands being great for enjoying a paddle in the waters, and the Banjo Pier sheltering you from the west.

On the other side of the Pier is the Looe River and the harbour, where any anglers will delight in casting off on the pier, or head out on one of the many angling excursions on offer.

If you are a thrill seeker then travel around 20-minutes north to Adrenalin Quarry, an awesome adventure complex with an inflatable aquapark, go-karting, zip-wires across the old quarry and sheer cliffs, and even axe throwing among other pursuits, you are sure to find an activity for all to enjoy, old and young.

Within reach of other pretty coastal towns such as Polperro and Millendreath, The Boat House is a lovely base from which to explore the delights of the South East Cornish coast.

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.
