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.

Peace, quiet and fantastic location.

5 of 5
Having stayed here several times, as always it was beautifully clean. A really superb location, minutes from polperro harbour. It has the benefit too of a private, sunny and secure garden. Finally you even get private parking. Thank you Victoria

Ideal. The location is superb. The accomodation has all you need and plenty of character.

Laity can be found down the very narrow Talland Street. Part of it is bellow street level and you go down into the cottage/apartment via three steps. A spacious lounge - dinner is very comfortable, the kitchen is a good size as is the bed room. There is a bathroom with shower over the bath. The river runs directly under the bedroom window creating a relaxing sound to sleep to. Laity is 500 years old and as such it can feel damp and cold however the heating soon sorts that out. The location is ideal unless you expect to park your car right outside. Parking is half a mile away and the hill is very steep. We parked up on the first day and didn't use the car again until the last. Step out of the door and you are right in the heart of Polperro by the harbour with a very short walk to the sea and the Three Pilchards pub where the Fish and Chips has to be eaten to be believed. There are other pubs on with Sky Sport, but the Pilchards was the best. It's not a beach holiday and it's not for children but it suited us perfectly. Hopefully going back when we can.
