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.

The property is a home from home with all the amenities you could wish for. I'm not sure there is a better location in all of Cornwall, we loved hearing the crashing waves and the proximity to the beach and the coastal walks were great. Polperro is a lively village and although we were there very much out of season there were pubs and some shops open. Couch's restaurant has a great tasting menu and the Blue Peter inn was very friendly and cosy. Take away fish and chips from the 3 Pilchards not to be missed. Further afield there are great places to visit in under an hour : Eden Project, lost garden of Heligan, Fowey (do try the ferry!) and Padstow (great restaurants) to name a few. We went to quite a few beaches with the dog, Constantine near Padstow was our favourite, however nearer Par was good to exercise the dog and Polkerris with Sams on the Beach was lovely. The owner Deborah could not have been a better host and the house keepers Tracey and Carl were brilliant This will definitely be our next stop in Cornwall again, if it's not booked up!

Definitely coming back to stay for longer next time. The whole apartment was spotless and of really high quality. Couldn't recommend more!
