A tranquil country-cosy retreat just three miles from the lively coastal town of Looe.
This semi-detached cottage is tucked away on a hillside overlooking the treetops of Looe Valley; the setting really is quite magical.
Suitable for couples and small families, Cosy Nook really does live up to its name!
Inside, the cottage has heaps of character with beamed ceilings and a homely feel.
The open plan ground floor living room has sitting, dining and kitchen areas, snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove on cooler evenings.
The two first floor bedrooms are neat, colourful and welcoming and share a pristine bathroom.
Immediately to the front of the cottage is a sun terrace with steps up to a further garden area overlooking the valley below.
The cottage shares access with the neighbouring property up a typical Cornish narrow lane on an incline.
With walks in all directions, this is a great base for discovering this enchanting corner of South Cornwall.
When you are ready to venture out, potter down the hill, hop on the train and you can be in Looe within 5 minutes.
A historic port and fishing town, this is a great holiday destination with a maze of narrow streets lined with pubs, restaurants, art galleries and shops.
Life here revolves around the water so head out on a mackerel fishing or shark watching trip, try your hand at diving or snorkelling or enjoy a ride on a glass bottomed boat.
With safe sandy beaches it is child friendly too.
The waterside towns of Fowey, Polperro and Mevagissey are within easy reach as are the celebrated Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan.
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 discovery centre, 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.
