Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Looe - Ducks Dive

Ducks Dive - Gorgeous little property in superb Cornish gardens

This fully self-contained part of a delightful country house provides very comfortable accommodation for those seeking peace and quiet but with the bustling port of Looe nearby.

Stunning gardens and baby ducks at the front door are just some of the delights to greet you when you stay at Ducks Dive.

Forming a fully self-contained part of Seasons Country House the situation could hardly be bettered, nestling in a quiet & secluded valley with views over delightful gardens ,water features and trout stream.

Although a peaceful spot the bustling port of Looe with its fine sandy beach, harbour, shops and restaurants is only a ten minute drive and within a couple of hundred yards is a tiny halt where, on request, the Looe Valley branch line train will stop and take you into town. The Eden Project - definitely not to be missed - is only a half hour run in the car and from the accommodation there are super rural walks through this completely unspoilt corner of Cornwall.

The accommodation is tastefully furnished and arranged on two floors. The glazed front door gives access to the large open plan sitting/dining room/kitchen.

Stairs from here lead to the delightful double bedroom, the single bedroom and the bathroom. There is also a very comfortable sofa bed available in the lounge for a fourth guests if needed.

Ducks Dive is a little gem in the most perfect spot for those with a love of the English countryside and with a taste for the finer things in life - come and enjoy it!

Delightful - with an unexpected plus

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well appointed and very comfortable; quiet, in the depths of a small wooded valley - but at the end of the lane is a railway station! Actualy it is just a platform - you put your hand up to stop the train! It goes to Looe in oone direction (lovely seaside and fishing town with access to the coastal path for walkers) and Liskeard in the other direction for connections to London and the rest of the world! The whole line is also a scenic gem. This could make for a wonderful car-less holiday in a location for which you might think one was really rather necessary!

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in the Looe area many times, but this is a real hidden gem. The property is exactly as listed on the website, if not better. It has excellent facilities, but the location is the real winning feature. If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all, then this is the place. Nestled in the Looe valley, you are surrounded by beautiful gardens and matching natural surroundings, where the only sounds you will hear are the birds, water and sheep. It is the place to totally relax and recharge your batteries.

The owners are very welcoming and Wolff just couldn't do enough for us; we found the service exceptional and I will be unreservedly recommending Ducks' Dive to friends and relatives.

We visited Looe and Polperro and were delighted to find that we could get a Chinese takeaway delivered from The Golden Bowl on our first evening! There are lots of places to eat in Looe. In Polperro, we can highly recommend The Plantation Tea Rooms, perfect location for a relaxing drink. We also ate at the Blue Peter and found the food fantastic - Caribbean crab cakes with chilli sauce were exquisite. Cod in Doom Bar batter at the Three Pilchards was also lovely.

We visited Truro and found The Old Grammar School tucked away off of the main shopping area and can't recommend the food highly enough, we had hand made burgers and chips and it was, to use a well-worn cliche, to die for; as were the cooler drinks - Passion Fruit and Mango and Ginger Beer particularly.

Glendurgan was a highlight of the week with the beach at the bottom of the garden and being outwitted in the maze by small children! The Eden Project is a must for everyone to visit, you learn so much about the planet and it really makes you think about the impact you are having on the environment - as well as that it is a fantastic day out with amazing food and cakes so big you feel like a Borrower - the shop is great too, just make sure you are wearing thin clothes for the Rainforest Biome.

Last, but not least, when staying at Ducks' Dive, take the train into Looe from the halt at Causeland (just down the lane) it's a beautiful journey through the Looe Valley which is so delightful when the tide is in and there are many birds to spot on the way.

We were sorry to leave Ducks' Dive and miss chats with Wolff and the tranquility.
