Looe apartment description

You couldn't get closer to the beach in Looe unless you sit on it. This self-catering, one bedroom holiday home in Cornwall has everything you need for a romantic holiday or short break. Take your wallet, partner and shoes if you are planning on walking further than the glorious sandy beach. You will find everything else you need for a perfect vacation in the restored Cornish fisherman's cottage. The massive Georgian stone walls will keep you will be cool in summer, warm and cozy in winter. Forget the car and spend time walking the coastal paths to Polperro and beyond, visiting St George's Island or just browse the small independent shops. Watch the fishermen bringing their catch to market at high tide while enjoying your fish and chips. Eat in one of the many highly acclaimed restaurants or enjoy a pint and some shanty songs. Get to know how friendly the locals really are. At night time you may just catch the sound of the waves breaking on the beach at high tide, but nothing else.


South Cornwall: South Cornwall - reckoned to be Britain's most beautiful and interesting coastline - is a land of steep wooded rocky chines which lead inland from the sea along stream and river valleys. Villages spill down these craggy inlets to the water where there is often to be found an old fishing harbour, always massively defended against the rolling Atlantic winter storms, and in today's more gentle political climate usually home to yachts and fishing boats, rather than the sea-reivers, smugglers and wreckers of yore.
Mewing buzzards ride ladders of air above the craggy igneous Cornish landscape, as farmers work their herds in what is the balmiest climate in the British Isles, due to the gentle wash of the Gulf Stream along its shores.

Local history: The local history is rich: the Spanish Armada may have failed in its mission, but South Cornwall saw the only successful invasion since William the Conqueror when the Spaniards briefly invaded the county. The little-known Stannary Parliament at nearby Liskeard, which gave the tin-miners a large degree of self-rule, last sat in 1572, and the picturesque and haunting ruins of tin-mines still dot the uncompromisingly rugged but utterly beautiful landscape. The 'Cornish Alps' are testimony to the once-great china clay industry, and stories of the sea - lifeboat heroes, sea-going villains and naval battles - dominate this once-remote region. Surfing, crabbing, shark-fishing, lobster-fishing and scuba-diving are now the main activities in waters where revenue-men and smugglers and units of the Royal Navy and Napoleon's fleet once contended with cutlass and cannon.

              About: My wife and I run this small holiday business from our home office just outside Bath. We own all the properties we let and that currently includes two cottages in beautiful Freshford near Bath; one one bedroom cottage just outside Bath and The Old Museum in Looe, Cornwall.

Here are our main principles: • Be as responsive as possible to any email communication from the customer. We try to answer all emails within the hour. • Offer interesting, historic buildings in a beautiful and relaxing environment. • Offer locations that work well without a car. • Try to make the properties as close to a “home from home” as possible. • Work hard to keep the standard of maintenance as high as possible. • We pay a bonus to our housekeeper if the words “spotlessly clean” appear in a review. • Make the business of booking as simple and straightforward as possible. • Trust our guests. • Provide enough information to enable guests to find the property easily. • Make the check in as simple as possible. • Provide a stress-free holiday from beginning to end.
