The property

Admire a superb coastal setting from the comfort of this newly refurbished apartment located in the heart of Looe, a popular beachside resort and bustling fishing port on Cornwall's south-east coast. As its name might hint, Harbour View is set in a prime position from where it watches the local fishing vessels land their catch along the ancient harbour wall and fisherman's cottages appear to cascade over the hillside and down to the sea. A fascinating backdrop, the sight and sound of the sea is vivid and a wide crescent of sandy beach is within a 10 minute walk.

Loved for generations, Looe has evolved into a vibrant visitor destination offering a rich and varied holiday experience with excellent facilities including fine eateries, old inns, galleries and shops lining its narrow streets. Couples residing here can discover romantic walks, inland through Kilminorth Woods and National Trust land or along the scenic coastal footpath to Talland, stopping for a delicious cream tea at the beach cafe and, in warmer weather, to swim or sun bathe. For those wanting to venture further, passenger ferries operate from Looe to the charismatic fishing village of Polperro, the exclusive waterside town of Fowey and the little port of Polruan. The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project are also a must-see.

Set in an elevated position on the first floor, Harbour View offers a snug and modern interior with an open plan living room incorporating a kitchen, dining and sitting area. A double bedroom at the rear and a pristine shower room complete the accommodation. A public car park is within a 5 minute walk and British Rail train station within a 10 minute walk.

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.
