  • “Thoroughly enjoyed a week here, especially since we got lucky with the weather in October.”

    ...

    It's a very comfortable, well-equipped house with lovely views over the valley. Despite being a short walk (albeit steep) to the busy town, the house is peaceful and quiet. Looe itself was great. Being able to head along to the coast, along a river or through woodland makes it a great location for walking. The car parking space was a little too small for our car (Skoda Octavia estate for reference) but we had no trouble finding space to park on the road. Some instructions what to do with things like bedding and towels on the day we left would have been helpful.

The property

Enjoying an elevated position in the fishing port town of Looe, Gull's View is a charming bungalow offering ground-floor accommodation for five guests.

Ideal for exploring Cornwall's south-east coast, Gull's View is within reach of many popular attractions, including the town centre of Looe itself, Eden Project, Polperro Heritage Coast and Fowey.

On arrival, after parking in your designated spot on the roadside, you are greeted with 33 stone steps up to the property, but the views are well-worth the climb.

Be welcomed into the spacious porch, perfect for storing surfboards and wet gear along with your boots and coats, before entering into the open-plan kitchen and dining room, with the lovely white dining table perched perfectly before the window so you can enjoy your meal with a view.

Over in the kitchen you have several appliances at your fingertips including an electric oven with a gas hob, a fridge/freezer, microwave and a washer/dryer.

Discover two beautiful blue velvet sofas in the sitting room, a haven where you can wind down at the end of the day, with a wall-mounted Smart TV and patio doors leading out to a small decked area at the front of the property, great for letting in the fresh coastal breeze.

Three lovely bedrooms offer elegant sleeping spots for all, choose from either one of the two double bedrooms, with the master home to an en-suite basin and WC, and a single room complete with a TV, served by the family bathroom, home to a bath with a shower over.

Spend time outside in the tiered garden, with the decked area at the front, as well as a raised decked area to the back to choose from, and a small lawned area, you can dine alfresco or relax with an evening drink as you soak in the views.

The town of Looe prides itself on its fresh fish, so don't hesitate to sample the local catch at one of the many restaurants specialising in seafood dishes here, or grab the best fish and chips from award-winning fish and chips shops and stroll down to the harbour to watch the boats return as you tuck in.

Looe's popular beach, East Looe Beach, is home to golden sands and a gentle slope into the waters, so it's great for swimming and paddling, and is right beside all the amenities you need like beach shops and cafés.

Enjoy a thrilling day at the nearby attraction of Adrenalin Quarry, an old quarry site transformed into an action-packed outing with zip-lines, deep-water swimming, go-karting and an inflatable water assault course!

Get up-close to exotic animals at Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary, home to meerkats, monkeys and zebras, as well as a kid's farm and a recreated Maasai village, it's a great day out for all ages.

Keen walkers will have plenty of stunning areas to explore, with the South West Coast Path always offering a great place to start, head west along the coast passing Looe Island Nature Reserve, to the Polperro Heritage Coast taking a stop in this quaint village with its own Polperro Harbour Heritage Museum and charming Polperro Model Village.

Discover the lovely town of Fowey further along the coast, don't miss a chance to visit the incredible Eden Project, and explore the vast Bodmin Moor.

For an active holiday in Looe choose Gull's View.

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.
