Cel Mawr is Cornish for "Big View" and this property certainly holds wonderful estuary views that can be taken in whilst sipping a drink and relaxing outside on the balcony! This is an unusual cottage which is lovely and spacious. The balcony can be accessed from both the ground floor bedroom and the living room. There is also a separate, enclosed patio area at a lower level.

Cel Mawr is in an elevated and enviable position in a popular area called Shutta in East Looe. Its light and airy rooms are presented well with tasteful furnishings. Shutta is a quiet area, yet within walking distance to all the pubs, shops, restaurants and East Looe's sandy beach. It is also close to the local railway station so you could come and enjoy your holiday car free.

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.


Excellent property in a nice location. Very steep path up to property, which may not suit all people. There is no parking at property but there is some a walk away. Really enjoyed our break in this lovely , small town.Mrs Dianne Burgess - 27th November 2017
Wonderful week in great accommodation in a lovely town with very welcoming people. Would recommend a pint and a bite in the globe at the bottom of the hill. Mr Jon Holland - 31st October 2017
The verandah and view over the river were fantastic. It's a very steep walk up but wonderful to be up with the gulls - we really missed them after we left. We felt very at home indeed. It was really peaceful. Very comfy beds etc.Mrs Annabel Partridge - 14th August 2017
Cel Mawr is a lovely property, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and in a great location being only a few minutes walk to East Looe. The covered veranda looking out towards the harbour was an added bonus (photograph on property details not giving it justice!) Will definitely book Cel Mawr again without hesitation! Thank you!Mrs Ruth Owens - 7th August 2017
