The property

Nestling on the side of the beautiful Looe Valley, overlooking the tree tops towards the coast, this magical setting is quite breathtaking. A stroll down to the picturesque Sandplace Station to experience the novelty of hailing the Looe to Liskeard Branch Line. Reputed to be one of the most scenic rail journeys in the country, delivering you to the lively fishing village of Looe within minutes.

With contemporary décor throughout this delightful traditional cottage has a warm and homely ambiance and is perfectly placed to explore. The historic ports of Looe and Polperro are worthy of a visit with both offering a maze of narrow streets lined with pubs, restaurants, art galleries and shops. Life in both of these ancient fishing towns revolves around the water. Head out on a mackerel fishing trip or go on a shark spotting tour to name but a few. Looe itself has a long sandy beach which is child friendly. Rock pooling is great fun for children and adults alike and crabbing a must on the quay side! The waterside towns of Fowey and Mevagissey are both within easy reach, as too is Polruan, home to the ferry taking you across the Fowey Estuary. There are numerous other great days out within easy reach, such as The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Bodmin Moor.

Lady Grace's has character in abundance with beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace, with wood burning stove, that you can cuddle up in front of on the giant snuggle chair on those cooler winter evenings. With two bedrooms, the first with an elegant kingsize bed and the second with bunk beds and a pretty day bed, Lady Grace's is perfect for both families and friends. Downstairs is an immaculate modern bathroom, kitchen and comfortable dining area. The large south facing decked area to the front of the cottage is a great place to relax and enjoy a barbecue on those lazy summer evenings.

This semi-detached cottage can be booked in conjunction with Cosy Nook, next door, (property reference 1708). Both are accessed up a typical Cornish lane on an incline with parking to the front of the cottages.

About the location

LOOE

Liskeard 9 miles.

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. You can also catch the river taxi between East and West Looe. East Looe has narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Looe’s viewpoint, Banjo Pier, can be reached from the quay and is a great spot to watch the returning fishing trawlers and look across the bay to Looe Island, which can be walked to occasionally at very low tides. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. There is also a great rock pool area at Hannafore that children will love. West Looe has a discovery centre, and the delightful Kilminorth Woods have way marked walks through the majestic oak wood, rich in plant, insect and bird life. Apart from beach activities in this part of south east Cornwall, there are many mining remains on Bodmin Moor and in the Tamar Valley and much of the mining landscape has World Heritage status. This area of Cornwall has inspired writers, such as Daphne du Maurier and much of Bodmin Moor has inspired legends linked with King Arthur. There is much to explore in this beautiful part of Cornwall.
