    “We try not to set expectations when we rent a holiday home and then look forward to enjoying our time being there.”


    The house is very clean, well kept and offers plenty of flexibility. As this is a house for up to 8 people the fridge is too small and a step stool would help shorter people to reach the saucepans. The location is superb, truly up to 10 minutes walk from beaches, dependent upon your pace! Description of access in the welcome file at Pink Flamingo is more accurate then the on line version which does not mention the steep road walk to Plaidy beach, with no car parking, which may be too much for elderly or infirm, and the climb down an eroded track to Second beach is only appropriate for the fit and nimble or a mountain goat. This limited our enjoyment of the location with a very senior mum, who needed driving everywhere. On reflection I should have asked about access around the property. However the garden was a delight with plenty of comfortable seating in the sunny weather throughout the week. Our two dogs excelled, there is the best of dog walking in open fields at the top of the road, with most fantastic views across to Looe Island, and getting to Plaidy beach was like a magnet for them, pulling on a short lead along the narrow road down a steep hill. We needed this larger home with ground floor bed and bathrooms for our family, and if we all visit Looe again I think would try to rent Pink Flamingo.

The cottage

Pink Flamingo is a large one-of-a-kind family cottage located just outside the town of Looe in a quiet private road overlooking the sea.

Bring the family along to take in the spectacularly relaxing views and enjoy the cottage's spacious interior, which comprises four big bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Start your day sipping coffee and watching the sun rise over the sea in the light and airy front conservatory.

The large but cosy country kitchen offers a working AGA oven for those autumn, winter and early spring holidays and plenty of cupboard space and modern conveniences to make your stay enjoyable.

The spacious lounge has picture windows looking out over the beautiful bay and two extremely comfortable reclining leather sofas ideal for putting your feet up and watching a movie after a fun day on the beach.

For those cold evenings there is a fire to provide a warm cosy atmosphere.

A separate dining room offers more breathtaking views.

Thoughtfully designed throughout, the accommodation provides 2 large ground floor bedrooms - 1 double with a TV and 1 twin.

Downstairs there is also 1 bathroom, a large shower room and a laundry room with a washer/dryer.

Two more comfy bedrooms are found upstairs; 1 double with a TV/DVD and a shower room and one bunk room with more beautiful views.

A further big bathroom with a corner bath is also upstairs.

The front and back gardens are large and easily accommodate seating front and back for everyone.

The back garden is enclosed to keep children and dogs in!

There is a games cupboard with different garden games and beach toys for the children and young at heart.

If you ever want to leave the cottage you can reach the beach in a matter of minutes.

There are 2 beaches (Plaidy and Sanders Beaches) within a couple of minutes walking distance both of which are dog friendly all year round and are excellent for rock pooling, crabbing and beach combing.

Swimming is great fun at Plaidy Beach when the tide is out as it exposes a large bank of sand so stays shallow a long way out.

Looe beach and Looe town is an easy ten minute walk along the coast path which is picked up outside the front door of the cottage!

The sandy Looe Beach connects to the pier, a very popular trip out for families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand.

There is lots to do in Looe including crabbing, canoeing and boat trips to see Looe Island.

West Looe has a discovery centre, and delightful Kilminorth Woods, whilst aside from the beach and activities in this part of Cornwall, many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley are just waiting to be explored.

An experience not to be missed!

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.
