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.

It's our fifth holiday in Cornwall but our first time in Looe. I chose the flat for it's stunning views and wasn't disappointed. We booked when the flat was owned by someone else but even though it changed hands both the previous owner and the new owner kept in touch and our booking and holiday went smoothly which is great customer care.The apartment itself is well furnished even if you want to spend most of your time exploring it is nice to know there is 2 comfy sofa's and 2 comfy big beds when you return. There is a bath and a wonderful hot shower . I only cooked toast and one meal during our stay but the facilities are excellent you don't need to pack anything all that you could want is provided. Games and books plus a dvd player is in the living room and there is wifi. There are no tv's in the bedrooms but with wifi that wasn't to much of an issue . We had great breakfasts in Daisys cafe which i can't recommend highly enough the food is amazing quality and you wouldn't get better service in Cornwall let alone Looe. We enjoyed Smugglers cott for Sunday lunch and Zute for cocktails and pizza. There are a few great bakers, fish and chips and lots of pub grub. For us we had a wonderful holiday. The only issue is you do have to be ok mobility wise because yes there is stairs to climb and you may struggle doing it daily if not fit. My personal opinion i'd get rid of the dishwasher and install a washer/dryer in it's place as currently this is in a little shed at the bottom of the stairs outside. But if i come back to Looe i'd stay again it's a brilliant apartment you won't find better
