Looe apartment description

You couldn't get closer to the beach in Looe unless you sit on it. This self-catering, two bedroom holiday home has everything you need for a romantic holiday or short break. There is a double bedroom, a single bedroom and a double sofa-bed so it can sleep up to five people. The bathroom has a full size bath with a shower over and a walk-in shower. You will find everything you need for a perfect vacation in the restored Cornish fisherman's cottage, including dishwasher, washer/dryer, wifi, etc. Everything is crisp, clean and beautifully decorated and furnished featuring Cornish slate floors and window cills and some lovely artwork. The massive stone walls will keep you will be cool in summer, warm and cosy on winter evenings spent sitting around the gas log effect stove on the beautifully comfortable leather sofa. If you decide to take the car out you will only have to walk a few yards to the dedicated secure parking spot.

Take your wallet and shoes if you are planning on walking further than the glorious sandy beach.
Forget the car and spend time walking the coastal paths to Polperro and beyond or visiting St George's Island. Watch the fishermen bringing their catch to market at high tide. 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. Spend time on the glorious safe sandy beach, secure in the knowledge you can be back home in one minute if you need to dodge a shower, take care of little ones or just have a cup of coffee. At night time you may just catch the sound of the waves breaking on the beach at high tide, but nothing else.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      East Looe centres on the broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier, a new Lifeboat station and St. Mary's Church. Stretching back from here is a grid of narrow streets forming the main part of the town, packed with many small independent shops, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs. Along the estuary lies the quay, with several fish dealers. Towards the bridge lies the Victorian Guildhall, and just north of the bridge the railway station. This is the terminus of the stunning Looe Valley branch line to Liskeard.

                      Along the cliffs to the east is Plaidy Beach, and past there is the bay and village of Millendreath with another beach. Inland lies the famous Woolly monkey sanctuary. Other local attractions include the beaches, sailing, fishing and diving, and spectacular coastal walks, especially that via Talland to Polperro. In the area are several stately homes, including Antony House, Cotehele, Mount Edgcumbe, and Lanhydrock House, as well as the Eden Project near St Austell.

                      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 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. 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, 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.
