It's just a 2-minute walk down to the shops, restaurants, pubs, harbour and beach - but it takes a bit longer to get back up!!! That's the small price you pay for the lovely view. Clive was very friendly and helpful. We would love to return.

The apartment has everything you need and is very clean, tidy and spacious. Pat and Brian were wonderful hosts, collected us from the train station and brought our luggage to the train station on our last day as we wanted to spend our last day there. I would certainly recommend and if we visit Looe again I wouldn't hesitate to book again. There is plenty to do in Looe and surrounding areas and Cornwall as a whole. Looe has shops to browse around, boat trips up the river and out of the harbour and around Looe Island. Plenty of great places to eat and something to suit everyone. Many thanks for your hospitality Brian & Pat :-) Julie & Marilyn

Idyllic and exactly as described, we were welcomed by a friendly Squirrel, a curious Robin and a plate of fresh scones. It couldn't have been more perfect. The house was immaculate, and felt as comfortable as your own home. The location made it almost impossible to get a decent mobile phone signal which meant we were catapulted back in time - we turned our phones off, and instantly relaxed. Time spent by the river paddling, feeding the swans and generally exploring with our young son was amongst the most precious moments of the holiday and allowed us uninterrupted family time away from the noise, hussle and bussle of everyday life. A pleasant walk along the river led us to Looe where we spent hours on the harbor wall crab fishing before returning in the evening to our little secret cottage. It was more than a holiday home - it was a retreat. Highly recommended.
