The property

Hidden away within the pretty fishing port of Looe, is this characterful, end-terrace cottage, The Coachman.

This spacious accommodation has been designed to bring together families and friends to this tranquil spot, with a vast array of attractions and activities to suit a group of all ages and tastes.

The interior enjoys spacious rooms, carefully selected furnishings and bags of character to ensure a delightful base to return to year after year.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living room, where you will find all the essentials for a week-long break, as well as the stunning feature hearth with wood burner which takes centre stage.

Fulfilling your culinary needs is the well-equipped kitchen, where you will be delighted by the Harlequin-style tiles which play backdrop to all the appliances you will need to whip up delicious evening meals.

After dinner, look forward to sinking into the plush sofas which rest in front of a roaring woodburning stove, complemented by the exposed beams to add further charm to the space.

Continue up the staircase to find three well-presented bedrooms, comprising a bunk bedroom and two twin rooms.

The real home-from-home interior continues to impress on the second floor, where you will find a king-size sleigh bed and a double bedroom, which has access to a well-appointed bathroom with a roll-top bath, walk-in shower, basin and WC.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a leisurely stroll will bring you to a selection of eateries and Cornish inns to cater to all tastes, as well as a choice of shops for picking up the essentials.

For days out, you and your loved ones can venture to the nearby beach where you can laze of the glorious sands or dip into the shallow waters during a summer's day.

For those feeling adventurous, catch a boat trip to Looe Island's bird and wildlife sanctuary, or go on a fishing trip from harbour.

The Coachman is a sublime base for exploring this corner of Cornwall with your loved ones.

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.
