    “If you have come across this house on your holiday search then stop looking as this property is stunning yet incredibly homely.”

    If you love a view, well, who doesn’t ? this home offers a different view from each window that changes throughout the day. You can see a lot of thought has gone into getting this home ready to welcome guests, for me it’s always the little things,a pint of milk in the fridge, tea & coffee left for arrival, towels & tea towels, toilet paper, washer & dryer which means one less job when you have to leave and can arrive back home still relaxed from the sea air & views, there are also books, ...

    If you love a view, well, who doesn’t ? this home offers a different view from each window that changes throughout the day. You can see a lot of thought has gone into getting this home ready to welcome guests, for me it’s always the little things,a pint of milk in the fridge, tea & coffee left for arrival, towels & tea towels, toilet paper, washer & dryer which means one less job when you have to leave and can arrive back home still relaxed from the sea air & views, there are also books, dvd’s, games, binoculars, Alexa speakers, coffee machine for ground coffee, a huge, modern fridge/freezer, the tv set up is a bit complicated if you’re used to just turning the tv on and watching the tv, I’m sure your tv has DVB so no need for the freeview box ?but I work in this industry so I was the one holding 3 remotes, loading the dvd & finding the right programs ! The garden does state it’s enclosed which it isn’t fully so if you have a dog or small child they will need supervision, the balcony is enclosed and has enough furniture to enjoy an morning cuppa, alfresco dining or just a glass of wine while soaking in the views plus it was perfect for my puppy to lie on in the sun (when we had some) ! Every seat in the living room has a different view and there are more than enough furniture for a large family. The bedrooms are all large and have enough hangers and drawer space in each room and the beds are large and comfortable. The driveway fits 2 cars but we parked on the roadway covering the drive due to steepness as our car boots wouldn’t close as the sensors see the drive as an obstruction but that’s BMW for you ! Could do with a bin outside instead of in the garage as we couldn’t locate garage key but this is not a negative just a suggestion. Looe island view was warm, comfortable, homely and welcoming. A true 10 out of 10

Perched in the spectacular seaside location of Downderry, Cornwall is this fabulously-presented four-bedroom holiday home, Looe Island View.

With award-winning, elevated panoramic sea views all the way to Looe Island, this magnificent house accommodates up to eight guests, perfect for a family holiday by the sea.

Upon entering your new home-from-home, be impressed by the fully equipped-equipped kitchen, boasting all the necessary appliances required to ease your self-catered stay; take the weight off your feet in the spacious living/room, or step out through full-length sliding doors which lead to extensive terrace which sits majestically overlooking the bay.

Kick back and relax on the rattan furniture and loungers whilst you sip a cooling beverage after a length day spent building sandcastles on the beach.

When stars appear overhead, retreat to the first floor and treat yourself to an indulgent soak in the tub or a warm shower, completing your routine before choosing from four beautifully-presented bedrooms, some with Juliet balconies and each offering great flexibility with the sleeping arrangements.

The pretty seaside village of Downderry resides only paces away and offers a traditional Cornish pub and a handy general store where you can stock up on the self-catering essentials.

Pass the time upon the sandy trails at Downderry Beach, with an abundance of rock pools to explore sure to occupy the younger members of your group, or where you can let your pooch run and play freely.

Further afield, spend the day in the popular towns of Looe and Polperro, offering the Old Guildhall Museum and Gaol, East Looe Beach, Polperro Heritage Coast and Polperro Harbour with pretty views of bobbing fishing boats and the surrounding valley.

The excellent Whitsand Bay with its four-mile stretch of sandy beach is also within accessible reach and is a must for beach-lovers!

Enjoy all of this and more with an unforgettable Cornish holiday at Looe Island View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location

DOWNDERRY

Looe 6 miles; Liskeard 10 miles; Polperro 11 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

Downderry is a small quiet coastal village situated in south east Cornwall. Downderry has a sheltered beach, Post Office and shop, deli, and a cliff top pub and an excellent restaurant, serving quality local food. At low tide it is possible to walk along the beach from Downderry to Seaton, where you will find a family friendly south facing beach and the nearby Seaton Valley Countryside Park and Nature reserve is home to wildlife, including otters and kingfishers and also offers great cycling and walking opportunities. The picturesque working harbours at Looe and Polperro are within an easy driving distance away, and the wonderful stretches of the South West Coast Path in this part of Cornwall take you to rocky coves, dramatic headlands and tales of shipwrecks and smugglers. Further afield is Plymouth, where you will find plenty to see and do, including a marine aquarium, a theatre, large shopping centres and the historic Barbican waterside area.
