Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Looe - Dreamporth

Beautifully renovated luxury self-catering accommodation suitable for all ages.

This beautifully renovated 19th Century cottage is located in a conservation area only 120 metres from the harbour of West Looe. Modern self-catering facilities throughout include a lovely open plan living room and superb fitted kitchen/dining area, double bedroom & twin bedded rooms adjacent to the first floor family bathroom, and an impressive master bedroom equipped with en-suite double shower room. Additionally a small utility room offers a washer/dryer. With level access by foot, the cottage it's suitable for all ages. The safe, sandy beach is just 500 metres and is popular with bathers and boarders. The old town of Looe is a maze of tiny lanes and quaint cottages. There is a nice assortment of shops to suit all tastes as well as many good restaurants (Carvery, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Pubs) Suitable for romantic short breaks + family holidays alike, Looes' oldest pub and best Deli are just a couple of facilities close at hand.

Locality: Polperro and Fowey with their lovely harbours are within walking distance for the energetic or can be reached easily by car or on one of the regular boat trips from Looe harbour. The Cornish Coast path passes right through Looe & offers some amazing coastal views & wonderful walks (west to Fowey and east to Rame Head). Boat trips also run to Looe Island where seal watching is a favourite pass-time. Glass bottomed boats also offer a window into the rich local aquatic environment.

The fantastic Eden project along with the Lost Gardens of Heligan are less than an hour away. Rugged Dartmoor is a 45 minute drive & there are ample golf clubs in the area (St Mellion, Looe Down, Saltash, Portwrinkle, and Doublebois).

Plymouth is a 30 minute drive away and offers the National Marine Aquarium, the Theatre Royal, Plymouth Dome & great shopping plus all the night life you would expect from a big city.

Families: Looe Monkey Sanctuary is a great favourite with children housing many rescued woolly monkeys in a wonderful wooded environment. 30 minutes by car is Kidz World - a fantastic indoor adventure zone for children from toddlers up because it rains in Cornwall too! There is an great donkey sanctuary with indoor / outdoor play at Gunnislake - a 25 minute drive away.

There are two arcades in Looe that offer traditional children’s rides & 2p slots for that traditional British seaside holiday feel if that is your preference.

Crab fishing is a brilliant pass-time for kids & parents alike. In the summer half an hour can easily fill a bucket with crabs & the quay is often lined with very competitive parents!

Many of the restaurants in Looe offer an early sitting (5:30 to 6:00pm) which enables families with younger children to dine out without the need for a babysitter.

(We can provide contact details for a local babysitter if required. Emily works at the local pre-school & is police-checked)

Sports: Fishermen amongst you will not be disappointed. Charters leave Looe (weather depending) & account for shark in the summer, pollock, conger & bass. This area of coast is rich with reefs & the shore fishing for bass especially on surface lures can be spectacular. For families, regular mackerel fishing trips leave the quay with all tackle provided.

Looe has a diving school (Looe Divers) offering guided dives on local reefs & wrecks popular because of the fantastic water clarity & warmth. Surfing & canoeing are very popular in & around Looe and there is a great surf beach at Portwrinkle (20 minutes by car).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvelous time and felt very much at home in Dreamporth. Lovely cottage, nicely decorated and very well kept. Glad to have stayed in West Looe as East Looe was rather busy. I absolutely loved your limpet towers and we busily kept collecting those "chinese hats" to take a little bit of the seaside atmosphere and a lovely memory of your cottage home

Would recommend excellent clean cosy cottage

  • 4 out of 5
Cottage was lovely! Three great size bedrooms and two large bathrooms. Bed linen was nice and everywhere was clean. Very well equipped kitchen with small area for dining. Cosy well equipped lounge. Stairs were narrow and steep which may be difficult for the elderly. Super location and all the locals very friendly! Great shop opposite too.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the cottage last week with with my two children and Mum. The cottage is really lovely and very well presented with lots of things useful for children.

It is in West Looe which is much quieter and we were very glad about this as East was very busy in the evenings. It was however a few minutes walk to the ferry to cross to the other side - which was really fun for the kids.

We would definately recommend this for families to stay in and we hope to return in coming years for a holiday.

Modern, cosy holiday cottage

  • 5 out of 5
This was our 2nd stay at Dreamporth and we had a lovely time. The cottage was clean and tidy and well maintained. As before we found the shop opposite very useful for essentials (despite the early morning deliveries!) The beach is very close and ideal for families. We took a boat ride around Looe island and the skipper was very knowledgeable in the local area and even let our 2 children steer it! Would recommend a trip to Polperro...just a short drive away...and the tram and horse and cart rides are great for the kids. There's a great new children's playground near to the amusement arcade which is safe, clean and exciting for young children if they need a break from the beach. I'm sure we'll be visiting again in the future. Good value for money.

Brill Holiday

  • 4 out of 5
Dreamporth was in a great location - in the quiet part of Looe but close enough to everything that we wanted to do. Our 15 month old son loved the clean beach and there was lots to do in the immediate area without having to travel too far. We visited Polperro, Fowey, The Lost Gardens and The Eden Project. The sun was also out everyday which is always a bonus! Dreamporth had everything we needed and we'll definitely be going again.

Restored and renewed in Looe

  • 5 out of 5
We were really looking to get away from it all, with the dog as well, the cottage is well equipped, very close to the harbour with unusually large rooms for Looe, there is an excellent store directly opposite, so supplies were easy.

The stairs were not too steep and the master bedroom on the top floor is amazing, including the enormous shower.

It was a restful time and we have recommended this place to others.

If you like a sandy beach and you love fish then Looe is one of the best places in the South West for both. The cottage is in West Looe which is less busy and less commercial, and the oldest pub in Looe is a hundred yards away.

NB. The best place to park was on Hannanfore and walk back.

A Good Choice

  • 4 out of 5
We were in the cottage for one week during the summer of '08. The cottage was very nicely decorated, clean, and the bedrooms were a nice size. The entrance is ground level and one needs to climb stairs only to get to the bedrooms and bathrooms. My mum who is near 70 is very fit and had no problems with the stairs. However, I doubt that most people of that age would be comfortable with the very steep stairs at the top of the house. Evenings we enjoyed the great stock of DVDs and games that the owner had for our use. Before the visit I contacted the owner with questions about parking, and received a prompt and helpful reply. One cannot park at the cottage, but we were able to drive up, unload our cases, then park at a big pay lot nearby. It was a good ten minute walk to the lot, but it was a pleasant walk along the water. We were able to pay for several days at a time and leave the car there overnights quite safely, as well as come and go with the car quite easily. The cottage was across from a well-stocked but small store and we were able to cater many of our own meals as we had planned. Though we had no view of the water, we were quite close to it, and on the quiet side of Looe. We needed to walk over a bridge to get to the bustling side. Of course we enjoyed the cream teas and the very short drives to Polperro and Lanhydrock. At Lanhydrok, the kids were provided with a game: to find the Thomas the Tank engine in each room, while the adults could enjoy the history and furnishings of the stately home. The tea room was beautiful as were the grounds. In Polperro the miniature world was very cool as well as the Pirate museum and an exhibition of local artists works. The Blue Peter was a great place to eat there. The day trip to Plymouth was wonderful, with lots to see and do including used book shops, great shopping, a boat ride of the harbor, and a memorial of where the Pilgrims left on their Mayflower voyage to America. The kids were very disappointed that we missed out on the aquarium because we had no idea how late in the day it was and we had arrived too late to make the admission price worth it. (It is quite expensive and needs at least half a day). During our holiday the kids loved the crab fishing off the quay near the cottage MOST OF ALL. If one is without a car, there is plenty to enjoy in Looe. I would recommend this property to a friend because it was quite comfortable and roomy for our family of 5.

Looe is an unspoilt, picturesque fishing village dating back to the 12 century.Looe is situated on the SE coast of Cornwall 15 miles west of Plymouth with East & West divided by the harbour.It's blessed with quaint old buildings, smugglers taverns & some of Cornwalls finest restaurants.Looe is mild off season & fantastic for spring/autumn breaks or for its famous New Year fancy dress street party & fireworks.Looe is a thriving fishing port providing quality raw materials for the restaurants.Because it is a working community you can be sure that the facilities you require are open all year round. It's gently shelving sandy beach is very child friendly and there are rock pools galore to keep even the most inquisitive children occupied.Looe river and the surrounding coastline is excellent for sport fishing for bass or summer charters can be arranged as Looe is the shark fishing capital of Great Britain.The more energetic can make use of the 'South West Coast Path' which runs through Looe.

There is also a good quality moveable stairgate available to ensure your childrens security. For children out of cots there is bed guard fitted to one of the single beds. The cottage is very family friendly (we use it regularly ourselves with our 7 year old son & 5 year old daughter). It is set out on 3 levels with the master and en-suite at the top of the house. Families (two adults and children) can easily utilize levels 1 and 2 for ease as there is ample space and the stairs are not overly steep, unlike many properties locally.The living area is also spacious. All facilities in the cottage are modern - fridge/freezer, washing machine / tumbledryer, microwave, beds, bedding and all fittings.
