We arrived to a warm, clean, welcoming house and were soon settled with a pot of tea taking in the fabulous harbour views. This time round we did a lot of cooking indoors and found the kitchen to be well equipped with everything we needed. Looe in winter is a complete contrast to our summer visits and it was a delight to walk on an empty beach and stroll around the town with no crowds. The shops and most restaurants were all open, along with our favourite watering holes and we were lucky with the weather so got out for long walks along the coastal paths and through the woods by the river. Sharon and John are excellent hosts and ensured we knew how the heating worked and are always on hand in case of any questions. This is the ideal place to stay in Looe as it's close to everything, yet quiet and peaceful and full of charm. Looe in winter is as delightful as Looe in summer and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

                                                                                                      We stayed for three nights in this wonderful apartment. I'd never used this website before so we were a bit nervous but we messaged the apartment owners and they responded very promptly and reassured us. We had no problems at all with the booking process or with getting our deposit back afterwards. The apartment is right in the heart of looe, with the marina outside the window and a five min walk past beautiful sights to get to restaurants and pubs. There's also a useful Co-op there for stocking up and a cashpoint. The owners provided a helpful pack of information about places to eat, although it needs a little updating as their favourite restaurant is now closed. We ended up instead in the Moonlight Tandoori (5min walk from flat over the other side of the bridge) and had a gorgeous curry in a great atmosphere. If you like windswept walks along beaches or photography, this a great place to a wintry wander of any length, or an 8min drive from the flat is the stunning village of Polperro which is well worth a visit for quaint shops, a beach and some cliff top walks. We can also recommend a Sunday roast in the Blue Peter Inn which has board games and loads of atmosphere. The apartment itself was a joy and we are already thinking about how we can go back some time! It exceeded our expectations in every way. The owners are B&B owners nearby so it's a properly serviced apartment with hotel standards of bedding and cleanliness. There's a lovely deep couples bath as well as a separate shower, two bedrooms, great cooking facilities, and it's very warm and cosy. All high end bathroomware and smart attention to detail. The kitchen has a microwave and several pots and pans, all the plates, cutlery and glassware you could need. You also have your own designated parking space and there's a lift to the flat so no stairs to negotiate. And when we arrived it was dark and December, and the view from the living room window of all the Christmas lights up the hill above the marina was just magical. Staying here as a pre-Christmas treat took us both fully into the Christmas spirit. We utterly recommend this wonderful flat in the beautiful, stress-free escape of Looe.

The property and location were exactly what we were after. Our dog loved being able to take walks in the fields and nearby woodlands and Seaton beach. The stone cottage and quiet farm environment were a perfect backdrop for our Christmas getaway. The owners who live on site were very accommodating, and only to happy to accommodate requests for missing items such as a carving knife we needed for our Christmas turkey. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for a rural cottage break.
