    We loved the long evenings by the log burner! Thank you Siobhan (and family) for looking after us! I recommend 100%.

  • "Had a fantastic stay here at Hook Cottage."

    Property was well maintained, brilliantly equipped, clean , comfortable and warm. We loved it. Lots of space and lovely vaulted ceilings. Full of character. Hard floors meant it was dog friendly too. Our spaniel enjoyed himself too! Fridge freezer was a decent size ( not just an ice box). Shower was excellent. There was a great shared recycling area too. The property was situated in a quiet area of the village which was perfect for us. The grounds were great too. We loved seeing the cows and hens from the kitchen window. Pub and shops were within a very easy walking distance. Excellent location for exploring South East Cornwall but also within easy reach of venturing further afield. Owners were friendly ( as was Archie the dog!) and helpful. Thank you so much for the lovely cream tea and the fresh eggs! We would love to revisit.

    Wow Rachel, what fabulous feedback thank you so very much. Really appreciate you taking the time to write this. it makes all the effort we put in so so worth it. It is a privilege to have peoples precious holidays in our hands, and your feedback helps us know we are on the right track. We look forward to welcoming you back to Cardwen Farm Holiday Cottages.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. As you did not want us to take a look during your stay I had a look at changeover time and think that you may have found the old light fittings under the kitchen cabinets that had previously contained fluorescent bulbs. These light fittings had already been replaced by modern lighting in the kitchen. During our next period of maintenance we will remove these from under the cabinets and label switches.

  • "Well furnished, good beds !"

    Good quality bed linens and towels. Plenty of information on the local area. Well kept recycling area very impressed with that! Nice to be able to get fresh eggs on site . As a keen gardener my only fault is I would love to have got the vast gardens under control there are some amazing plants and areas but all a little overgrown . I would definitely recommend the cottages to family and friends.

    Thank you for your comments Bridget, we pride ourselves on providing the best for our lovely visitors. We have been able to add three gardeners to our books this year which is giving us much more time to spend on the 2 acre gardens. As a keen gardener myself, I am excited to have this new team behind me as we move forward as new owners with our renovations of Cardwen Farm Holiday Cottages. Siobhan Property Owner

    The host was very welcoming. Clean, comfortable seating, comfortable beds, and a good supply of hot water with good water pressure. These are important things, yet sadly lacking at other places. Next time we choose the Looe area, we will not hesitate to book here again.

  • "This is a lovely comfortable cottage in a lovely location."

    It was beautifully clean and well equipped. The gardens surrounding are lovely. The owner was very helpful and gave us good tips on where to go and places to eat. The cream tea on arrival was a nice treat. The only comment we would make is that the bathroom needs a make over. There was nowhere except the window ledge to place toiletries and would be difficult if there were 4 people in the cottage.

    Update to feedback: The new bathroom has been installed and is looking fantastic. Heated mirror cabinets for extra storage and a new powerful shower compliment the 'makeover'. Thank you for completing your feedback following your recent stay at Hook Cottage, we are pleased to hear you liked the cottage and gardens. We have spoken with the owner who thrives to maintain the highest of standards and has confirmed that the bathroom will be renovated in November of this year in keeping with the rest of the cottage which has undergone top to toe improvements over the past 2 years. There is a cupboard under the sink for personal bits, however some additional glass shelving will be added as soon as possible. The owners of Hook Cottage live on site and are always happy to hear thoughts on how they can make their guests stay more comfortable and are usually able to resolve any issues the same day. We hope to welcome you back to The West Country in the near future. Property Owner

    The location is perfect. Surrounded by the peace and tranquillity of the local farms, but within a 10 minute stroll of the Jubilee Inn (which is a fantastic place to eat and drink), and a couple of local shops. Looe and Polperro are both just a few minutes drive away. The cottage itself was superb. It really was a home from home. Comfy beds, full appliances in the kitchen and even a Nespresso coffee machine. As we were travelling with two teenagers, the excellent WiFi was also a massive bonus. The gardens surrounding the property are great and in the late afternoons the cows in the field opposite come down to say hello and see what you are up to. Our entire stay could not be faulted.

  • "The cottage was wonderful as were the owners."

    However my dissatisfaction is with Sykes the company. Descriptions. These were different with other booking companies. Getting answers prior to the holiday from Sykes was like pulling teeth. The Insurance is needless in UK and is NOT explained prior to booking.Hidden extra charges were not explained.i.e Tumble Dryer,Disposable Barbecues,Logs. We understood the garden was enclosed,one of the main reasons for booking as we have a dog. The garden was not enclosed. I would not book with Sykes again.

    We are delighted that you found the cottage and owners wonderful. Regarding the additional costs mentioned, the insurance is an option which has to be selected when booking and is not automatically added. The owners added additional laundry facilities this season in an adjacent barn, which serves the four barns on the site. The tumble dryer is charged at £5 per load and this information has been added to the web description. The owners also provide logs on arrival and for guests convenience can provide additional logs at £5 per load. The site has a gas BBQ which is complementary. If guests wish to take a BBQ to the beach they can supply disposable BBQ's for their convenience which are charged.The gardens are listed as communal, however the owners are planning to enclose the private garden completely in the future.

  • "Hook Cottage is a stunning little cottage and would thoroughly recommend."

    .We were greeted with a really clean, beautifully decorated and well facilitated cottage. The owners were lovely and left us scones, cream and jam, which was a lovely touch. They popped by to welcome us too, which we appreciated. The decor is very stylish and we particularly loved the modern bathroom and every room had fragrance sticks. The master bed, let me tell you was superbly comfortable and soft and we had very good nights sleep here. We went for the cottage that had a fire, as we love nothing more than a cosy evening with wine and cheese. The owners had already set it up for us( and a basket of wood) so it was simply lighting it. What I loved was the honesty box where you could collect your own wood, which I loved as I felt very countrified! Further to that the facilities include a lovely nespresso machine, wifi (as no phone signal) washing and dish washer machines, fridge/freezer and a large TV with access to Netflix, Now TV, BBC I player ( you must have an account) and many more. A short drive or 15 min walk to Pelynt which has a well stocked Spar and also a lovely hotel/ restaurant which is a 15 min drive called Talland Bay are nearby and I would recommend. This is one of few cottages that welcome dogs too and we took our two mini sausage dogs, who were welcomed, especially in Talland Bay restaurant/hotel. I would really recommend this a lovely break for couples and family.

    Lovely owners, very helpful and welcoming. We've had many holiday cottages over the years, this is the only one we've said that we would definitely revisit. The Sykes listing failed to include the wood burner, this would put some people off. Also in the booking process, some charges were hidden. Poorly done Sykes. Cottage: Highly recommended, 5 stars.

About the location


Polperro 5 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.
