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.

We arrived to a warm, clean, welcoming house and were soon settled with a pot of tea taking in the fabulous harbour views. This time round we did a lot of cooking indoors and found the kitchen to be well equipped with everything we needed. Looe in winter is a complete contrast to our summer visits and it was a delight to walk on an empty beach and stroll around the town with no crowds. The shops and most restaurants were all open, along with our favourite watering holes and we were lucky with the weather so got out for long walks along the coastal paths and through the woods by the river. Sharon and John are excellent hosts and ensured we knew how the heating worked and are always on hand in case of any questions. This is the ideal place to stay in Looe as it's close to everything, yet quiet and peaceful and full of charm. Looe in winter is as delightful as Looe in summer and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

The photos really don't do the house justice, it has a really nice feel to it. Our teenagers took over the upstairs sitting room for their "revision". We loved cooking and eating in the kitchen and then relaxing in the lounge. Only a very short walk down the hill to the village with lovely walks from the door. Everyone was so friendly, would recommend the Three Pilchards and the Blue for food.
