    “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.

Ideally positioned within the popular fishing port of Looe, The Knoll is a lovely first-floor apartment offering a pleasant base from which to explore Cornwall.

Boasting fantastic views of the East Looe River, this delightful dwelling is perfect for couples or those with young families who seek an unforgettable escape to the coast.

Head on out to the balcony and admire incredible views of the river whilst indulging in a warm cup of coffee and taking a moment to embrace your wonderful surroundings.

Wander through to the charming galley kitchen and grab ingredients from the spacious fridge/freezer as you begin to prepare a tasty evening meal with the help of the electric hob, for the whole family to enjoy at the pretty dining table.

Wash off the sand from a fun-filled day at the beach in the airy shower room, retreating to the quirky double bedroom decorated with lime green walls and a striking black bedframe.

The apartment is also home to a double bedroom and a peaceful single bedroom boasting a single bed and a child's bed, so that you can send the children off to sleep with their favourite bedtime story at the end of another marvellous day in Cornwall.

When ready to discover the very best that the area has to offer, grab your swimming gear and head for East Looe Beach where you can delight in a dip in the sea.

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.
