Looe, Cornwall

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This striking and handsome slate-hung farmhouse has been converted into two sizeable cottages, Old House and West House both with far-reaching views over the fields towards the sea, with Dodman Point in the distance. Each cottage has its own enclosed garden and picnic table to enjoy the peace and tranquility.

Lansallos Barton is on the edge of Lansallos halfway between the coastal villages of Polruan and Polperro. This small hamlet is a cluster of cottages around a charming church. Stunning coastal scenery, Lansallos Cove and the other little beaches on Lantivet Bay are all a short walk away. If it’s the hustle and bustle that you are after then head to Polperro, Looe or Fowey.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Sensitively furnished

    This is a remote cottage with good sea views and relatively easy access to cliff paths and the beach. It's also sensitively furnished and nicely appointed. This ticked all my boxes in terms of being able to really get the most out of a very beautiful coastal location, spend quality time with my dog and children, and be very relaxed in the evenings.
