  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Farleigh Cottage which is in a perfect location to walk into Looe & explore the surrounding area."

    The cottage is cozy & comfortable with everything you could need. We felt it could benefit with a bigger roasting dish rather than baking trays & a larger pan, perhaps a wok. The view from the top bedroom is fantastic, but we did struggle a bit with the sloping ceilings, getting up in the night/ in & out of bed etc but the movement sensitive light on the staircase was a godsend. We didn't mind washing up after ourselves but couldn't understand why there is a washing machine with no outside space/full sized airer to dry the washing, rather than a dishwasher. Our stay at the cottage was with friends & we struggled to park our second car. We expected to pay around £25 at Millpool car park for a weekly ticket but on arrival, found it to be approx £70. However, the car park beyond Millpool car park offers a weekly ticket for £15. You can also park freely at the top of the hill at Hannafore which is a good 20 minute walk from the cottage. Thank you for our lovely stay at the cottage.

    Thank you for comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. This is our first year letting Farleigh out so appreciate any feedback to help make quests stay better. The parking as recently gone up in Looe so we are grateful for the one spot outside. Hope you come and stay again. Pam Property Owner

The property

Enjoying elevated views over East Looe River in the Cornish town of Looe is Farleigh Cottage, a delightful, two-bedroom dwelling.

Just paces away from the beach and a hub of amenities and attractions, Farleigh Cottage offers a charming abode for four guests, also inviting one well-behaved dog.

Park up in the designated parking space, and make your way to your new, traditional abode.

Step indoors to be met by the contemporary open-plan living space, where you'll locate a fully-equipped kitchen, dining seating for four guests, and plush sofas to sink into after a day of adventure; on cooler days, light the woodburning stove for a warming glow and feel.

After enjoying supper and a cosy night in, catch some rest from either the twin bedroom, complete with a zip/link feature, and the second-floor double-size bedroom, the latter enjoying breath-taking vistas of the coast.

Awaken to a refreshing shower in the shower room, before heading into the town where you'll find a wealth of shops, pubs, eateries, and attractions to take advantage of.

On your doorstep, enjoy touring the Old Guildhall Museum & Gaol, take a stroll along East Looe Beach, or head to the bustling West Looe Harbour to watch the boats come in.

Outdoor enthusiasts will jump at the opportunity to visit the Adrenalin Quarry adventure park for an afternoon of watersports, a hike through Kilminorth Woods, or a trek up to Golitha Falls and nature reserve.

With plenty of coastal villages and towns to visit, including Seaton and Fowey, be sure to stop off at nearby Polperro, where you can follow the lovely Polperro Heritage Coast path along the beachfront, grab a bag of fish and chips, and end the day with a tour of Polperro Harbour Heritage Museum, before returning home for sundowners.

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.
