Guestbook comments from the owner
We have stayed in Looe several times but never stayed in the town - what a fantastic find Osborne House is. We are a family of 9 ranging from big kids (30 somethings) to even bigger kids (60 somethings). Not sure who had more fun playing table football or who was worse at table tennis but we had such a laugh playing both. The house is in such a perfect position and very well equipped. The front door takes a bit of getting used to when locking it but we soon got the hang of the jiggle.
Sally (the housekeeper) met us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful and we really appreciated the house being ready for us earlier than the check-in time.
Looe is a fantastic place with a gorgeous beach, lovely town and lots of places to eat - recommend The Sail Loft, Smugglers Cott & Kitchenside. We went on the glass bottomed boat and it was amazing to see the seals in the ocean. Had a magical holiday with an amazing family in a beautiful house. Another year where fantastic memories were made. Thank-you.
