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.

There was 4 mature couples and there was still plenty of space. I cannot fault the cottage in any way. the large living room has great views over the harbor, the well equipped (new ) kitchen was a great place for us all to have breakfast, and the 2 double 2 twin bedrooms were perfect. The position at the end of the harbor is second to none, and the Blue Peter Inn, one of the best pubs i have ever frequented, is 29 steps away. I have been visiting Polperro 2 or 3 times a year for the last 14 years and stayed in many different cottages, and this is without doubt the best cottage i have stayed in. My sister will be 50 in 2017, so we will be returning to Willy Wilcox for another stay. a great cottage in a great Cornish village.

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.
