Make a holiday rental home or cottage in South East Cornwall, England your home away from home

South East Cornwall has fewer attractions for water sports enthusiasts than other parts of the region, as many of the beaches in this part of the county are more shingle than sand. In its place lies a fascinating history of smugglers and pirates, some of the UK’s finest coastal walks and scenic routes, and the quaint fishing towns and rural villages that perfectly sum up the unique Cornish lifestyle. Those looking for a truly authentic, peaceful and beautiful break far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life should genuinely consider a week or two in this blissful region of Cornwall.

Initially there was an issue with recreational seating as there wasn't enough for all of us. However a phone call to the owners rectified this problem within an hour even though they were out of the country. I greatly appreciated the speed that this was resolved. The property was an excellent base for exploring. The town of Looe was very charming, full of quaint shops and restaurants. I would certainly stay at the property again. Very reasonably priced, superbly equipped and superbly located.

The whole family (myself, husband & 4 children) had a fabulous time. The cottage itself is very comfortable and furnished with a clean, modern design. Wood flooring, plenty of leather sofas. The granite kitchen was maybe a bit small but had everything we needed including an extra large fridge. All very nice. We never felt the need to check how to work the heating as it was always warm. The bedrooms were good size for a holiday home and we enjoyed having a wetroom attached to our bedroom. Although you sometimes do need to use the squeegee after a shower. This was no problem. The rather large TV was great for watching the supplied videos & we even had a BBQ one afternoon. Views from both front and back were very nice. The pool and gym were exceptional. The gym was small, but very well equipped, with a step machine, boke, treadmill and a multi-gym. Although the kids were not allowed to use it. The pool and hot tub were brill. The endless pool machine (once we were shown how to use it) was so simple to use & provided great entertainment (and even a bit of exercise). Although the pool is small, this machine more than compensated. The grounds themselves are lovely, with space to play football, donkeys, fishing (we didn’t fish but plenty of others wre & seemd to be catching quite a few) and a large games room. This was a real highlight with table tennis, table football (both free) and air hockey. There are supermarkets and pubs nearby (although nothing in walking distance) and the place was easy to find. A recommended place to stay.
