Tucked away in a quiet alley off West Looe Hill and just a short walk down to the quayside, you’ll find the delightful, refurbished Auntie Katie’s Cottage. Found on the western side of Looe, it is set away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre but close enough to walk across the bridge to reach the main throng of shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes. Even better take the short ferry ride across the river and view lovely Looe from a different perspective.

Furnished in a modern style yet retaining some of the original character, Auntie Katie’s Cottage has a spacious living room with a cosy wood-burning stove, exposed beams and two seating areas. Wooden flooring and colourful rugs ensure both practicality and comfort. The kitchen/dining room is well-equipped for your stay and the two first-floor bedrooms are perfect for a small family or friends visiting together.

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.
