Local Area

The town of Looe has charming narrow streets leading down to a picturesque harbour, and is split into East and West Looe by the river that runs through it, and on down to the beach.  Looe's sandy beach has a little cafe where you can linger over a cup of coffee while people-watching or admiring the view. 

There are a number of lovely cafes, as well as restaurants and pubs to choose from, making this a great destination for the foodies among you.  You will have the opportunity to buy freshly-caught fish from the market on the quay, or if you fancy it, go out on a fishing trip to have a go at catching your own!

If you don't fancy fishing, a good alternative boat trip is to Looe Island, where you can find some lovely examples of rare plants, and spot plenty of wildlife, including grey seals and seabirds.  Looe Marine Conservation Group can give you more information about the island and its wildlife.

Looe is said to be a wonderful place to enjoy the New Year festivities, a time when many happy party-goers in fancy dress descend upon the town to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a magnificent display of fireworks


To be honest this cottage was everything you would expect from a quality Cornish holiday let and more, I could not find anything wrong: except that is that I do not own it.Mr John Harrod - 17th September 2018
Loved the cottage and Maureen was very welcoming and helpful. Cottage is well equipped, very tranquil and we will definitely return.Mr Glenn Sheppard - 16th July 2018
We had a lovely week long break at Alice Cottage in Looe and would highly recommend the property. Contact with the local representative was very good and the service professional, helpful and friendly. Mrs C Sinclair - 21st November 2017
Everything about the property was perfect. We particularly noted the quality of the kitchen equipment, china and cutlery and the towels. I think that the stairs would be difficult for those with any mobility issues but otherwise it would accommodate 4 people comfortably. We loved the location and enjoyed walking into Looe and onto the coastal path. In short, we loved it!Mrs K Dixon - 15th April 2017
We've stayed at a few Cornish properties this year, and quite simply Alice's was exceptional. Both the information from Cornish Horizons and the pre-travel contact from Maureen the housekeeper was superb. Mr S Wheeler - 9th January 2017
