Most Looe cottages range from one to three bedrooms in size and all are fully furnished to a high standard.

With weekly rates ranging from £300 - £600, the cost of accommodation in Looe is comparable to other towns in the area like holiday cottages in St. Austell.

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.

Almost perfect

4 of 5
Beautiful and good location, big house. Lots of outdoor activities around that area. Walking distance to Looe. There is two canoes for use on a high tide. House is still not fully completed and shower could be a bit a bit bigger in the main bedroom. Couldn't see shower head for main bathroom, that would be a nice touch. Overall experience very positive. Recommend

Really nice cottage and location very comfortable bed and all you need is provided, has a good sized garage for off road parking, Perry was very helpful in telling me where the local doctors were when my wife needed to see one. Looe is a short distance away with plenty of choice of places to eat and a variety of shops. We would love to stay again sometime. Ed and Jan.
