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.

This property was spacious, clean and comfortable. The steps up to the front door were difficult but the views were worth the climb. It was a lovely home where we were able to relax and enjoy beautiful Looe.

Mrs A,

The service we received from the team at Cornish Horizons was second to none. They answered all of our questions and were very helpful. The booking process was quick and easy. The cottage was lovely. Very clean and great facilities. The log fire was great. Perfect location, only about 10-15 mins walk to the centre of town.

Mrs Karen B,


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.
