  • “Lovely cottage.”

    Well equipped, all three beds were really comfy. The shower was really powerful especially for a holiday rental. We did struggle with the spiders a bit but we did go in September.

The property

Downlea is a traditionally styled characterful cottage in a pretty, elevated spot in Looe resort, a 5 minute stroll from the buzzing harbour in coastal Looe resort.

Set over two floors, the accommodation is well presented and comfortable, with an open-plan sitting room with comfy sofas and snuggly open fire for those cooler months, with a dining area perfect for foody get-togethers.

The kitchen has all the appliances and leads to the terraced garden, with steps up to the paved patio (please supervise children) with garden furniture for sundowner drinks or sunshine morning latte.

The first floor has three bedrooms, the double and single boast scenic country views with a teasing Looe River glimpse.

At the rear, the cosier double bedroom and bathroom, with separate WC, complete this charismatic cottage.

Colourful Looe harbour and the long stretch of sandy beach makes this a popular coastal destination, with inns, restaurants, cafes and galleries lining the waterside.

Enjoy a fishing or pleasure boat trip – the excursion to Looe Island’s bird and wildlife sanctuary is stunning.

The two beaches have rock pools and caves to explore or discover the woodlands on a ramble or hired cycle.

Fabulous Fowey is a ferry ride away, with the Eden Project and beautiful Heligan Gardens within easy reach.

Downlea makea a super retreat for family, friends and couples seeking coastal and country adventures, whatever time of year.

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.
