With elevated views over a tidal river that meanders through a picturesque Cornish valley cloaked in woodland all the way to the sea - that is the setting of River View Cottage.
This lovingly refurbished cottage is away from the melee yet within a ten minute walk of Looe's cobbled streets, soft sandy beach, bustling quayside and superb restaurants.
Bestowing a counterbalance of cottage ambience and contemporary style, guests can relax on deeply cushioned ruby red sofas warmed by a traditional wood burner or enjoy a peaceful river vista from a dining room where glazed doors open onto a wide balcony - perfect for alfresco dining on a summer's evening.
Up in the bedrooms memory mattresses mould to your posture and a neutral harmony contrasted by a palette of vibrant colour cleverly interacts with designer vintage fabrics and fashionable furnishings creating a masterpiece of elegance and style.
A slipper bath adds an air of luxury to the small elegant bathroom.
As well as the balcony there is a petite attractive sloping garden.
Clinging to centuries old seafaring traditions, Looe's fascination is undoubtedly the harbour from where local fishermen set sail daily, returning to sell their harvest in the thriving fish market.
A much loved coastal resort with activities for all, there are shark fishing trips for the adventurous tagging the sharks and releasing them back into the sea and pleasure boat rides along the coast for those seeking a more relaxing holiday experience.
The soft sandy beach is perfect for families.
For those arriving by train the cottage is but one minute by taxi or a five minute walk; drivers take care as the lane up to the cottage is very steep and narrow to negotiate but there is space to park a small-medium sized car.
