The setting is very quiet and peaceful. While we were there the weather turned very cold but the wood burner kept the cottage very warm and cosy. The owners are very pleasant and on hand if you need them.

The property was all that we expected, clean well equipped and comfortable even down to Perry providing a DVD for us so that we could catch up on films and box sets in the evening as we relaxed on the tranquil bank of the river. As two hardworking publicans this was a luxury. The cottage was perfectly placed for visiting the many attractions that Cornwall has to offer or for just spending a relaxing day at the cottage watching the wildlife on the river. If you do not wish to cook Looe has a wide range of eateries on offer all reasonably priced. Thank you Sue and Perry we will be back.
