Amazing views across the Tamar valley - can even see impressive rail viaduct right from the kitchen window & a great place for walking and getting away from the business of urban life.

Initially there was an issue with recreational seating as there wasn't enough for all of us. However a phone call to the owners rectified this problem within an hour even though they were out of the country. I greatly appreciated the speed that this was resolved. The property was an excellent base for exploring. The town of Looe was very charming, full of quaint shops and restaurants. I would certainly stay at the property again. Very reasonably priced, superbly equipped and superbly located.

The rooms are spacious and light with fabulous views over the pretty town and harbour of Polperro. We stayed in the upstairs bedroom which was comfortable and warm. The kitchen/breakfast room was our favourite part of the house, where we would sit and have coffee and breakfast, or our afternoon tea and cake :-). While we were there we enjoyed spectacular walks along the coastal path to Polruan and Looe. The Blue Peter and the Three Pilchards pubs in the village were both lovely cosy venues for our evening meals, serving the freshest fish I have ever tasted, and very good ales. I would highly recommend staying at Pilchard Rock and we were very happy with the communication and service we received from the owner Paul Smith. Thank you.
