This delightful old cottage, dating from around 1750, stands in a beautiful wooded valley by the West Looe estuary. This idyllic spot is perfect for birdwatchers and walkers. The sound of the stream running nearby adds to the feeling of tranquillity. There is a pretty 45 minute walk through Kilminorth woods beside the estuary to the lively town of Looe. Several beaches, the picturesque old fishing village of Polperro and the South West coast path are a short distance away.
The oak beamed sitting room with wood burning stove is very cosy.
The small garden terrace with table, chairs & barbecue is perfect for a relaxing meal 'al fresco'.
Provisions: Looe has a good selection of small shops. In particular there is an excellent fresh fish shop right by the fish market on the quay. There is a good village shop in Pelynt (10 mins by car).
For larger supermarkets Liskeard is the best bet (20 mins by car).
Pets: We welcome pets and responsible owners. Please clear up after your pet, in particularly in the area around the cottage and the neighbours' houses. Pets are most definitely not allowed in the bedrooms or on the furniture.
This is a beautiful old cottage in a perfect location if you want peace and quiet and to enjoy nature. There is a bird feeder right outside the kitchen door so on a morning you can just sit and watch the birds (and sometimes squirrel) enjoying their breakfast. The owners supply the bird seed too so all you have to do is fill the feeder up. We watched herons and kingfishers on the estuary just yards from the front door too. The log fire is very welcoming and the cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need to make it feel just like home. The walk into Looe next to the estuary is lovely, but do be aware of high tides. We got cut off one day and had to do a detour into the woods! Do go to the Jubilee Inn for a pub meal in Pelynt. We had the best meals ever!
Lovely old cottage, very comfortable, good modern kitchen and all things provided for. The welcome cakes a nice touch. Beautiful riverside location around 35 minute walk to Looe through the woods, path could be muddy and not easy to negotiate at night!. Quite isolated and a car needed to get out and about especially if the weather is inclement! Would advise a small car to negotiate the counrty lanes but if you are looking for peace and quiet would highly recommend it.
Charming old cottage was as described, with no surprises, clean and warm, very well equipped, spacious, and short half hour walk to Looe through wood/shoreline path. Easy to launch kayak by cottage, and navigable in kayak all way to Looe, about three hours either side of HW. Lovely woodland walks on doorstep.
Watergate Cottage is set in a perfect, peaceful location where you can only here the bird song and babbling stream. We had a wonderful week away and would certainly stay again. Well equipped and comfortable cottage. Best suited for those with a small to medium car to help navigate the small country lanes.
This holiday cottage was more than we expected. It was clean warm and very welcoming. We arrived in the evening to a beautifully warm and very comfortable cottage, the beds were made and the rooms were lovely.The kitchen had everything in it you need for cooking family meals. Also a washing machine and tumble dryer. We were a family of six, aged from 7- 70, plus two dogs. The walks around the property were fantastic.We will be going back hopefully next year, and i have already recommended "Watergate cottage" to my family and friends.
Perfect location for a peaceful holiday. Lovely and clean, cosy getaway. Everything you could ask for was provided.
We had a wonderful time, thank you.
The cottage is in a beautiful, secluded valley close to the West Looe estuary. The surrounding woods and river are home to a huge variety of birds and other wildlife. The nearby port of Looe is an unspoilt fishing village dating back to the 12th century. It has many historic buildings including smugglers' pubs and some of Cornwall's finest restaurants. There is a gently shelving child-friendly beach and the coast is excellent for sport fishing. A short drive leads to the picturesque village of Polperro - crammed into a gash in the cliffs, its position is truly breath-taking. For the more energetic walking the South West coast path is a fantastic way to enjoy the glorious scenery.
