Make a holiday cottage in Looe your home away from home

Situated midway between St. Austell and Plymouth, Looe is a charming coastal town surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Acting as a hub for this particular corner of Cornwall, Looe has more than its fair share of amenities while still retaining a small, coastal community feel. Holidaymakers staying in Looe cottages have access to an array of beautiful beaches, winding walking paths, family attractions, and championship golf courses. The wealth of activities and attractions in Looe beckons couples and families in search of a quintessential Cornish getaway.

HomeAway has a number of lovely holiday cottages in Looe where holidaymakers will feel right at home. Most Looe cottages range from one to three bedrooms in size and all are fully furnished to a high standard. Some apartments even come with luxurious amenities such as access to tennis courts and swimming pools. With weekly rates ranging from £300 - £600, the cost of accommodation in Looe is comparable to other towns in the area like holiday cottages in St. Austell.

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.

Great location, excellent owners

5 of 5
The Little House is one of the best equipped houses we have ever rented. Sharon and John have done a great job to make it a real home from home and the information they leave for their guests about the area is very comprehensive. Looe is lovely and we were very impressed with the number of very nice restaurants both in the town and the surrounding area. The Eden Project, the Monkey Sanctuary and the Lost Gardens of Heligan were just a few of the places we visited and the views on the coast walk from Polperro back to Looe were stunning. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

Lovely old Cornish Cottage...

5 of 5
Peaceful setting, so quiet - slept forever! The garden just springing to life with snowdrops, daffodils and birdsong. Such a tonic to city life. Loved the cottage - comfortable, cosy with open fires and well equipped. It is just off the beaten track but so easy to get to places - Polperro, Looe, Fowey etc. with gorgeous beaches and coastal walks minutes away.

Wonderful holiday in a beautiful house

5 of 5
We're just back from a week at Lindos and just fell in love with the house and location.. the views from the veranda are just great.. standing out there watching the river, the hills, or the lights in the town at night, superb. The house is lovely..manages to be luxurious and yet cosy all in one.. and a short walk into town meant the car didn't move far all week. Already checking holidays to see when we can get back.. thank you x
