This beautiful, large period property is perfectly situated, right in the middle of the town, a stone's throw from the beach, harbour and the variety of quaint shops, pubs and restaurants. Curlews has recently been the subject of a major renovation and is decorated in a bright, fun and contemporary, nautical theme throughout. The property has been awarded a high-level four-star Visit Britain accreditation with a Gold standard award for the second year running for 2023/24.

This large Cornish stone cottage was built c. late 1500's and is spread over three floors. It is located in the heart of the picturesque fishing town of Looe, set back in a quiet square on the East of the town (the old medieval market square), between the beach, the narrow streets and harbour. You are literally on top of it all, there's no need to use the car once you arrive! One parking space is provided on the seafront, just a one-minute walk from the property.

The property offers three large bedrooms (two double bedrooms and a large twin room with full-sized single beds), a large luxury shower room and an additional cloakroom. The open-plan living area is equipped with a luxury fitted kitchen and integrated appliances, state-of-the-art Optimyst real flame-effect electric stove, comfortable sofas and a dining table with chairs to seat six. There is full central heating throughout the property and constant hot water. The cottage is also equipped with BT infinity ultra-fast speed Wi-Fi and has a large flat screen multi-media TV with Amazon Prime Fire Stick, featuring films, music, games and much more, all included in the cost.

Great care and attention has been paid to the decorating and design of the interior. Packed with interesting nautical objects and pictures, you really will feel like you are on holiday by the sea and being very well equipped, you have everything you need for a wonderful and relaxing break at Curlews.

Some major renovations were carried out to Curlews recently, which involved revealing the original beautiful stone wall in the main double bedroom, a full makeover of this room, including new LED ceiling spotlights and USB sockets, the installation of a traditional radiator and brand new carpets throughout the first floor and both staircases.

Looe is steeped in history, being famous for its smuggling heritage. You can even see the exit of a real smuggling tunnel in the building across the square from Curlews! Legend even has it that Jesus took a trip a by boat to Looe Island with his father Joseph as part of a pilgrimage (this was featured in an episode of 'Time Team'). Find out about this and Looe's fascinating history in the town's museum (opposite Curlews).

Looe is perfectly located for exploring the joys of Cornwall (it's close to Plymouth, so easy to reach and a perfect base to explore both Cornwall and Devon), is extremely easy to reach by London from train (a direct link runs from Paddington to Liskeard, with a very pretty short train journey alongside the river on the branch line to Looe), meaning that a car is not actually necessary to enjoy a break at Curlews. The town itself is very picturesque with its old quaint streets and historic architecture, lovely sandy beach and beautiful harbour and river and it nestles in amongst some of the country's finest landscapes, slap bang in the middle of the stunning South West Coastal Path.

A summer holiday in Looe can be a delight, but this part of the country truly is beautiful any time of the year. In fact a winter break in this part of the country gives you the beauty (if not more beautiful - it is really peaceful and tranquil in the winter) without all the hustle and bustle of the summer months. Did you know that towards the end of February it gets darker a whole hour and half later than in London - reason in itself to take a winter break here!

Prices are inclusive of all linen, utilities and one allocated seafront car parking space. Well-behaved dogs are welcome (ground floor only) by appointment.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location.

By Irene Broughton on 29-Sep-2023

We really enjoyed our stay at Curlews. The cottage is beautifully decorated, modern and clean. The winding staircase is a bit of a challenge for anyone with mobility issues but the owner has done her best to ensure the stairs can be used safely by adding several handrails. The use of a local parking place is a welcome benefit in Looe where parking can be a problem.

Thank you for your review Irene. I’m really glad you enjoyed your stay and Curlews and I hope to hear from you again. Very best wishes, Julie

Loved this little cottage. Even better that it comes with a parking space close buy! Really lovely decorated throughout. Had everything that is needed for a holiday - and thoughtful things as well like a stair gate. Really close to lovely pubs, shops and restaurants. Only slightly negative point is the double bed on the top floor, it’s not overly comfy and it makes a loud noise everytime you move. Despite that, we hope to return!

What a little gem!

By Sophie on 12-May-2023

We absolutely loved our stay at Curlews - everything we could’ve possibly needed was provided, the cottage itself is light and airy and the location could not have been better. We have been to Looe countless times but this holiday really was special. Thankyou!
