Home from home, spotlessly clean and comfortable with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Pen Y Bryn and Brian & Pat were so welcoming and extremely helpful throughout our stay, our only regret was that we didn't stay longer! The apartment itself was a real home from home with everything you need. Bright and airy, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and the views are absolutely stunning. Close to all the shops, restaurants and the beach, yes it's a steep walk back up but really well worth it, our 7 year old managed it without too much complaining! We used Looe Cabs whilst there and they were really good. Looe itself is beautiful, we will definitely be coming back to Looe and back to Pen Y Bryn. Thank you Pat and Brian, we loved your apartment!

Great panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

Great views from kitchen, bedroom and lounge. Very comfortable accommodation, spotlessly clean and friendly owners.

We managed without a car. Several walking routes down the hill to town, steep and steps involved, but worth being up the hill for the views! We always got the bus back up-no 72 comes round to the top of the hill, the bus stop is near the spar shop, so you can get your provisions and papers and walk 5 minutes down to Pen Y Bryn.

Buses to Liskeard and Polperro, although we also enjoyed walking the coastal path from Looe to Polperro and walking in the woods visible from the bedroom window.

Highly recommend!

Worth the climb!

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly owners, nice welcome, lovely clean and spacious accommodation with magnificent views. Highly recommended - literally! Looe was most enjoyable for scenery, location, shops but watch out for those pasty-stealing seagulls.

Welcoming, comfortable, with stunning views - a perfect winter break.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a great week here in February. Pen-Y-Bryn is situated, like the majority of homes in Looe, high over the town. The lounge windows have the most fantastic views over the harbour and estuary, and there's a small terrace landing outside where you can sit out in warm weather and take in the views from there. Pat and Brian gave us a warm, friendly welcome and were always on hand if needed. The kitchen was well-equipped, the bedrooms were comfortable and the whole place was toasty warm, lovely to come back to after a long day's sightseeing in what was sunny, but quite chilly, weather. The cosy lounge has two lovely settees which were great to flop on to in the evening and chill out.

Looe has lots of character with its harbour, interesting shops, and some great places to eat. It's also compact to walk around once down on the town level. You can tackle the steep climb down to the town and back up if you have strong legs and lungs, otherwise we found it easy to drive down and park in the Harbour or Millpool car parks. If you want a drink with your meal, there are also inexpensive taxis on hand to whisk you back up the hill. As a base, it's handy for so many places: the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Polperro, Fowey, Seaton and Plymouth. If you fancy a day out on the train as we did, take the single-carriage Looe Valley Line train to Liskeard, change to the GWR train to St. Erth, then hop on to the short branch line to St. Ives. The views over the bay are stunning on a sunny day.

Many thanks again to Pat and Brian for a brilliant winter break and we'd love to make a return visit.
