  • "A lovely holiday flat with fabulous views."

    Maggie has thought about many little extras that many don’t, from Binoculars to enjoy the view even more to umbrella, bags for life, hard sanatiser and masks. The flat was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our break in Looe. Thank you Maggie.

  • "The location is good though you have to enjoy climbing hills!"

    The view is lovely & the existence of a wooded hillside garden (through the green door) is a real bonus. Be aware that there is no oven &, due to its position, hot items are very tricky to get out of the microwave. Maggie is very considerate & accommodating. All in all a very successful holiday.

    Thank you Linda for your positive comments ~ it is sad to have my rating brought down when you enjoyed your holiday ~ there isn't room for an oven ~ i have put everything i could think of to make the kitchen viable! as it is a holiday flat guests are not inclined to cook in ! Property Owner

  • "This is a great little hideaway in East Cornwall."

    Great little apartment which is ideal for 2 people. Only 10 mins walk from middle of Looe but beware walk back is very steep ! We were made to feel very welcome by owner who lives very near and all things required for holiday are ready to hand ....shops nearby and apartment fittings etc. Had aweeks break and enjoyed it immensely.

    Thank you for comments. The property is suitable for 4 people and not 2 people. Property Owner

  • "A lovely comfortable apartment."

    Pleasant little balcony with great views looking up the West Looe River; we saw some stunning sunsets from there. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was fine, with modern spacious shower. Some points for prospective clients to note: East Looe is a 5-10 minutes walk, but it's down a very, very steep hill with many steps. Getting back would be a real struggle for anyone who's a bit unfit or with mobility problems. But it is only £4 for a taxi and we understand there's also a bus, though rather irregular. There are also steep narrow steps down to the front door. The parking spot is OK, but a bit small/awkward if you have anything larger than a mid-sized car. The kitchen is tiny and lacks an oven. The hob is only two rings. Don't expect to be able to cook a family meal there - unless you're a real wizard.

    Many thanks for your feedback, and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Knoll. We appreciate your comments in relation to the kitchen, steps and car parking space at the property however each of these features are photographed to provide a full representation of this property to aid a guest's research into a property prior to their stay.

  • "The owner was very generous and put milk in the fridge for our arrival, there were some biscuits, tea bags and coffee as well."

    This meant we didn’t need to go shopping as soon as we arrived. There were toys and books for our little boy to play with, all age appropriate. This all contributed to a very pleasant holiday.

    Thank you so much for lovely score ~ I am so glad you enjoyed your stay ~ look forward to seeing you again Maggie Property Owner

  • "Great apartment, views are amazing."

    Quality fixtures and very comfortable. The walk from the town is very steep and you need to be reasonably fit , but a taxi to the town & back was only £4 each way !! Maggie is lovely and very helpful. I’m sure we’d be back one day.

    Thank you so much for lovely score ~ look forward to you visiting again Maggie Property Owner

  • "The steps accessing the property are indeed exremely steep."

    The property is so high up.......once a passerby alerted us to the bus service we were much more inclined to access the town....car parking was at a premium, as was expected.

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.
