Alices Cottage, West Looe
Nestled in a lush, sheltered valley just a few steps from the West Looe River, this attractive Grade II listed cottage is one of four properties offering rural tranquility in the hamlet of Watergate. This idyllic haven offers a peaceful retreat for guests. Enjoy the many picturesque rural walks right on the doorstep, rich in bird-life with kingfishers, herons and buzzards seen along the River leading to Looe within a half hour stroll, or canoe along at high tide. There are several spectacular coastal walks; Talland Bay with its two shingle beaches to the quaint and pretty fishing port of Polperro is a worthy amble, where traditional inns and restaurants will replenish you with refreshments of Cornish fayre. Looe itself has a number of pubs and foodie establishments, a beach and busy harbour. Alice's Cottage, dating back to 1750, boasts a harmonious mix of modern living with characterful features, beautifully and comfortably presented. The sitting room has a beamed ceiling and slate floor with an ancient fireplace with a wood burning stove for cosy warmth during winter breaks. The kitchen is contemporary with a dining area, the bathroom bright and modern and the bedrooms are welcoming. The sunny patio and cottage garden with summer house at the front of the property is set against the quiet country lane and hilly glade of trees, with table and chairs perfect for lazy alfresco breakfasts. Picturesque Fowey, positioned halfway between Falmouth and Plymouth, is a lively, colourful harbourside resort just a 45 minute drive away, with bijou shops, galleries and restaurants. From here, walkers can explore the circular walk to Polruan, Pont and Bodinnick, or discover the coastal walks to Gribbin or Lantic Bay or along the scenic estuary.
