Property description

Located among the quaint old streets of East Looe, Lantau Cottage and Osborne House are immaculately presented historic houses dating back between 350 and 400 years. Both properties are very well equipped for modern day living yet each is steeped in a rich history with many original features including beamed and gabled ceilings and offer discerning guests a flavour of days long gone. With quality furniture and soft furnishings throughout, guests will appreciate the attention to detail. The houses are normally let from Saturday to Saturday during the peak season but we offer long weekend breaks during other times. The houses are ideally situated just a few paces from East Looe’s sandy beach, historic harbour and many cafes, bars and restaurants. These are no-smoking properties and we regret that we can't take pets. Each house has nearby parking for 2 cars including 1 space in the beachside carkpark and one in the Millpool carkpark.

In order to avoid the new online booking fee that was recently introduced by HomeAway and Ownersdirect, we accept payments by direct bank transfer.


Lantau Cottage: Looe Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 440244ha

Located amongst the quaint old streets of East Looe, Lantau Cottage is an immaculately presented former 17th Century Ship Merchant's House. Dating back over 400 years, the property is steeped in a rich history with many original features including Elizabeth panelled walls, beamed and gabled ceilings, oreil windows and a winding staircase that incorporates an original full size ship's mast. The house is very well equipped for modern day use but offers discerning guests a flavour of days long gone. With quality furniture and soft furnishings throughout, guests will appreciate the attention to detail. The house sleep 8-9 guests in five bedrooms (3 doubles, 1 twin & 1 single) and is normally let from Saturday to Saturday during peak periods. Its ideally situated just a few paces from East Looe’s sandy beach, historic harbour and many cafes, bars and restaurants. This is a no-smoking property and we regret that we can't take pets. The house has the benefit of nearby parking for 2 cars.

Get a glimpse of Looe's past by visiting the Old Guild Hall Museum, or wander the narrow streets, and sample the delights of the town’s award winning restaurants. Explore the picturesque village of Polperro with its jumble of whitewashed cottages. Its tiny harbour was once a thriving centre for the area's smuggling of brandy and tobacco. Or take the coastal path to explore the secluded coves of Talland and Lanivet Bay.

Looe is a great base in which to explore Cornwall and discover over six thousand years of legend, tradition and heritage from the moors, mines and mansions of the region. There are beaches for everyone, including the spectacular 4 mile stretch of Whitsand Bay which is a 15 minute drive away.

Springtime sees a riot of colour from the bulb fields of the Tamar Valley while the summer brings in an abundance of marine life to this area of outstanding natural beauty. Autumn sees a further transformation through the area's ancient woodlands and their flora & fauna.
