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


Second time we have visited Briar Cottage and we love it there - we'll definitely be back! If I could make one suggestion, it would be a curtain or blind on the front door as it is clear glass and the bedrooms and main bathroom are downstairs.Mrs Ruth Loader - 10th January 2018
Great place to stay especially with your pet as spacious, secure outside area. We loved the living area, it's layout and it's style. If we holiday in Cornwall in the future, this is the place we would stay and of course recommend. Mrs Jean Spencer - 28th September 2017
We had a great time staying at this property thank you Mr J Davies - 28th August 2017
Beautifully presented property David Richards - 24th July 2017
All-in-all we felt we made an excellent choice both by choosing to book through Cornish Horizons and with our choice of property. We were all delighted with the lovely cottage that we stayed in with its great facilities and excellent location. I have told several friends already who will definitely be looking at Cornish Horizons in the future and we intend to return to the cottage next time we are in Cornwall.Mrs Ruth Loader - 23rd April 2017
The property was beautiful and an easy walk to the coast. Lovely position for getting into Looe and Polperro.Mrs Linda Bull - 9th October 2016
