    “We loved our few days in Looe despite the rain and cold!”

    The cottage was the perfect place to unwind. We came by train and picked up supplies in the shops nearby. We loved exploring Looe and the local area on foot and by bus from this perfect base.

The property

Resting in the West Looe region of the Cornish Town is Alexandra Cottage, a delightful, three-bedroom home.

Just paces away from a hub of eateries, shops, and the shoreline, whilst complete with a designated parking space in a private car park, an enclosed, highly sought-after garden, and a charming interior, complete with original beamed ceilings, a woodburning stove, and flagstone flooring, the cottage makes an idyllic base for a family break; Alexandra Cottage welcomes six guests.

Park up in the designated parking space and travel on foot to the home, before entering through the stable door and into the characterful sitting room, where you can relax on the plush, leather sofas, light the woodburning stove, and catch up with your favourite series on Netflix.

Continue through to the dining room, designed for family mealtimes, which can be prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen, complete with an electric oven, induction hob, washing machine and dishwasher.

If you'd prefer an alfresco affair, climb the external steps up to the suntrap decked area, where you can dine and watch the sun set over Looe.

Return indoors to catch some rest, climbing the lovely wooden staircase, before arriving to three well-appointed bedrooms, including two king-size and a bunk room; all are serviced by a shower room.

Awaken to explore the town on foot, with the chance to stock up on the essentials, sample some of the areas local produce at The Sardine Factory Looe, The Old Sail Loft Restaurant, and Catch, and stroll along the harbour; further attractions include the Old Guildhall Museum & Gaol, and the property is just a short walk away from the water’s edge where you’ll find a footpath and the ferry which will take you to sandy terrain of East Looe Beach.

Travel north towards Liskeard, firstly stopping off at Adrenalin Quarry for a fun-filled day of axe throwing and zip lining, ahead of touring Liskeard Museum, or continuing further into the county to hike across Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve.

Round off your break with a stroll across the Polperro Heritage Coast, reaching the harbour and the vantage point of Neadland Point, before returning home for sundowners.

Enjoy a family getaway at Alexandra Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Polperro 5 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 Heritage Centre that recently opened in the Old Sardine Factory with a climbing wall and a cafe 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.
