Description


MAJOR RENOVATIONS RECENTLY CARRIED OUT / FOUR STAR GOLD VISIT BRITAIN ACCREDITATION AWARDED FOR 2022/23.
STILL PLENTY OF LAST MINUTE AVAILABILITY FOR 2022 INCLUDING AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER WEEKS - SEE CALENDAR AND PRICE LIST.

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 Quality in Tourism accreditation.

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 this year, 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.

Fantastic stay in Looe

By Sarah on 12-Feb-2017

Lovely property that has been decorated beautifully in a seaside theme. Fantastic newly fitted bathroom. The children loved their bedroom with games and toys and the general attention to detail in the property was great. Comfortable beds and lounge area. Really couldn't fault our stay here.....will be returning!

Perfect location, parking clean and tidy

By Averil G on 17-Dec-2016

Needed a get away long weekend to relax, Curlews Cottage was perfect. Even in November with the rain it was cosy close to shops, pubs and restaurants and harbour. We were four adults on a get away break and would recommend and stay here again ourselves. Owner and housekeeper very accommodating.

Perfect location

By Vicki S on 06-Nov-2016

Great little cottage, very cosy and had everything we needed for our weekend break. Lovely touches like buckets and spades for the beach and games for indoors when the weather wasn't that good! Right in the heart of Looe so eating out, shopping and getting around was super easy, especially with two young children. It is literally less than a minute walk from the car park and beach so no need to drag luggage very far. Would definitely recommend for a small family, does sleep up to six but it might get too cosy if you were staying for more than a few days! It was doggy friendly too so will take our dog next time :)
