Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Walking, cycling, and horse riding are all possibilities when staying in a Looe holiday cottage. Visitors to the area enjoy taking a stroll along the beach or on the famous South West Coast Path. In the summer months it is even possible to take the ferry to St. Georges Island, which is run by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. In the water visitors can swim at any number of beaches as well as surf and windsurf.

-Golf: Keen golfers won’t have to venture far from Looe as there is a golf course located right in town. Looe Golf Club offers a challenging 18-hole 70 par that welcomes golfers of all skill levels. A little further afield is the stunning Whitsand Bay Golf Club. Perched atop a cliff looking over the sea, the 18-hole course here has been welcoming holiday golfers for well over 100 years. Both courses offer modest green fees to visiting guests in addition to a full set of onsite facilities.

-Beaches: East Looe Beach is a traditional family beach located within walking distance of many holiday homes in Looe. The broad sand beach is largely sheltered and is ideal for swimming. Visitors can explore numerous rockpools at Portwrinkle Beach, also located in Looe. A little further from town, Whitsand Bay Beach offers a beautiful crescent-shaped strip of golden sand where families can bring their dogs and surfers can find swells.

-Family attractions: Kids and animal lovers will appreciate a visit to The Monkey Sanctuary, which is located right in Looe. The sanctuary is home to 37 monkeys who have been rescued and given a second chance at life. Also located very near to Looe is the Porfell Wildlife Park. Children and adults alike will enjoy a trip to the Model Village in charming Polperro. The model village offers plenty of entertainment and keeps old Cornish folklore alive.

Superb finish to the cottage, a really relaxing 3 nights with a friendly and warm welcome from the hosts, Thoroughly recommended. Can't wait to re-book for later in the year.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The cottage lives up to its traditional design and appearance of what you would expect from a Cornish cottage. Ideally located just outside the village at the entrance to the entrance road to Polperro and directly opposite the Crumplehorn Inn and Restaurant which is actually extremely convenient. The cottage has very traditional features and is generally well spaced and equipped for 4 persons. The cottage offers the true feeling of Cornwall and makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Bedrooms are well spaced and handy with one double bedroom and a twin bedroom that makes it better when staying with family. The parking at the front is ideal and a great saving as parking is generally around £10 per day in Polperro otherwise. Located around 1.2 mile from the Polperro harbour but the walk down to the harbour offers time to sample the shops, restaurants and pubs along route. Handy that the bus stop is directly outside taking you to Looe or Liskard and onto Plymouth so ideal if you want to park up the car all week. This is our 6th stay in Polperro in cottages and we love staying there as it is one of our favorite places. From our point and experience there were a few disappointments that could have made the stay so much better. The kitchen houses a very small fridge with an ice box and not a fridge freezer. This would have been useful to know prior to having shopping delivered with both fresh refrigerated and frozen produce. Thus nowhere near enough space to store many of the items ordered so we ended up having a feast the first night and disposing of the rest. The cooker sits at the end of the kitchen counter pitched on a board which makes it a little unsteady and protrudes slightly over the door. Not ideal for those with Children and could be a safety issue. The exchange of fridge and cooker and addition of a fridge freezer would be so much better. The lack of a small welcome pack of tea, sugar, milk and maybe a few scones was so disappointing as was the lack of items such as bin bags, toilet roll and soap in the bathroom and sinks as these are basics that are normally offered and taken as standard in all other places we have stayed in the village and thus was a bit of a downer from our part and something that could be learned by the owner. Overall we loved the location and the aspects of the cottage and would happily stay here again, but the attention to detail by the owners would make the stay far better.
