Property 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

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. 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

Other Activities: Shark fishing, seal watching, whale watching and bird watching

 

Manager info

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. We have designed the business on our own experiences of travelling and staying in holiday apartments. 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.

Why Looe:
This apartment is for you if you enjoy: Being within one minute of beautiful sandy Looe beach. A location two minutes from the shops, restaurants and pubs. Staying in an almost traffic free area. The sound of the waves breaking on the sea shore. A car free holiday. A cosy and warm home from home Walking the coastal paths at any time of year Areas of outstanding natural beauty within walking distance Staying in a proper working fishing town with friendly locals High speed wifi connection with download speeds of up to 35 MB

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I have known Cornwall all my life and I chose Looe because: It feels like a real place with a fishing industry and work outside the tourist and second home business. Most of the homes in Looe are occupied all year round so the pubs are lively on a Friday night and the Fore Street can have a buzz about it on a Saturday morning. It is possible to arrive in Looe by train. It not very far inside Cornwall shaving an hour or more off the tail end a long drive from up-country. I chose this particular property because: I loved the idea of being so close to the beach. It was so quiet at night. I liked the privacy of being one row back from the sea front. I loved the thick solid construction and the history of the building. I could see it working well for short Winter breaks. I felt there was enough to do in the area to keep occupied for a week without using the car.
