A well designed cottage nestling attractively into the side of a hill with great views of the river.

  • 4 of 5

We are four 'older' ladies from Tasmania, Australia, who love to walk seaside cliff tops, shop in quirky shops, explore new terrain, cook local produce, eat out in good restaurants and pubs and Langunnett Cottage in quaint Looe served such holiday needs perfectly. Our favourite walk was the dramatic one from Looe to Polperro.

We drove easily to St Isaac, Padstow, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Helegan and then we ran out of time and wished we had booked in for longer than a week. So much more to do and see.

The listing description was accurate in all respects - admittedly both the entry by car and foot is steep but no problem for relatively fit 'elders'. The step from the footpath to the main road, does, as explained by Tracy, need to be done with care. The property was scrupulously clean, comfortable beds, well maintained and easy to look after. Tracy's customer service was very helpful before the stay and she also checked that we had got there okay. If the chance arises I would be more than happy to return and I would also recommend it to others.

Langunnett Cottage, overlooking Looe and the steep-sided river valley.

  • 3 of 5

Langunnett Cottage is set high upon a hillside, together with several other holiday cottages, with stunning views overlooking the town of Looe and the river estuary. The cottage is well equipped, spotlessly clean and very spacious, comfortably accommodating our party of 4 adults, 1 child and 1 year old twins in a travel cot. Wi-Fi is not available.

However, access is a real cause for concern; being both difficult and dangerous and not for the faint hearted, none of which is made clear in the property details. By car, the cottage is approached from the main road, with a sharp left hand turn on to a steep, wooded, narrow drive, of tarmac and gravel, leading up to a second sharp right turn, on a loose gravel drive, up to the car park (fortunately, we didn't meet another cottage car going up or down). There is an allocated parking place for each cottage, plus one shared place for visitors to all the cottages. By foot, the town of Looe is described as 'a 10 - 15 minute stroll down the hill', but in reality it's a downhill walk, along a narrow footpath (unsuitable for buggies), cut into the hillside between other properties, with numerous steps and at one point leads straight on to a busy main road, with no footpath. The return walk is harder, with a gradient and steep steps to encounter.

We are extremely annoyed and disappointed that the property details are misleading, having made it quite clear from the outset (before we booked) that we wanted somewhere to stay that was suitable for young children, with easy access, within walking distance of Looe (with 1 year old twins, it also needed to be buggy friendly too) and with allocated parking for 2 cars. On arriving at the property, the access is scary and although the description of Langunnett Cottage states there are 2 parking spaces (one of the reasons we booked), in actual fact there is only 1 per cottage, plus 1 visitor space for everyone (first come first served), with no nearby alternative. We attempted to walk to Looe, but had to carry the twins, together with changing bags etc. and it was very dangerous walking along the main road, with no footpath, holding tightly on to a 4 year old. The misleading property details served to spoil the enjoyment of our holiday in Looe.

Langunnett Cottage is suitable for families with older children or groups of friends, not for families with young children, or for anyone with reduced mobility.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry you feel you were misled by the property description. However, I do state that the cottage is set on the hillside and there is a downhill walk into town (and therefore an uphill walk back). I also state that guests should be aware that there are numerous steps (some steep) both in and around the cottage and grounds. I am sorry that this was not adequate information for you.

Beautiful Cottage in fine elevated position

  • 4 of 5

A delightful unusual cottage in an ideal situation for touring east Cornwall and Devon.

The cottage is made of wood and situated in an elevated position, built into the hillside high above Looe. Accommodation is on four levels within the house with plenty of space for four or five adults. The views out across the river are really magnificent.

This cottage is ideal for a family with older children or for friends spending a holiday together. We would not recommend it for young children or for persons with limited mobility due to the gradients and many steps.

The cottage is tastefully furnished and very well equipped to a high standard. Wifi would be nice but not installed at present.

We are two couples who spent two weeks at the cottage in July.

Thank you to Tracy and to your housekeeper Caroline for a most enjoyable stay.

Well equipped, very comfortable cottage, peaceful with stunning views.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. Need to be reasonably fit for the walk back from town due to steep hills and lots of steps, but worth the effort for the location.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

Nice quiet location just outside Looe. Spacious, modern and comfortable cottage with fabulous views over the Looe valley. We loved the split levels, spa bath and private patio and balcony. Would love to visit again. Wifi would a bonus.

Lovely well equiped cottage. Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean & roomy. Bit of a scary driveway up to cottage & walk to the door. Lovely & peacefully. Good time to visit area as not too crowded. Did the looe to Polperro walk, well worth the trek. Lovely places to eat in the town. Nice welcome pack. Recommend the stay but you need to be fit with stairs, steps & hills.

Location

From the Owner

Langunnett Cottage is a special home which we love to visit. Our hearts belong in Cornwall and we love coming back to the region for our holidays. The cottage is set in beautiful grounds and always feels very peaceful and a great place to 'get away from it all'! However, just a short stroll and we are back in a bustling, buzzing, friendly town centre with all the amenities we need. A short drive and we always seem to stumble on a new place to explore.

The property is located approx. 10 minutes walk from Looe town centre. Looe is a historic fishing village and seaside holiday town and has many amenities - golden sandy beach, harbour, shops, supermarkets, banks, cafes, restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets. Many hours can be spent rock pooling or crabbing or watching the daily catch come in.

For those who enjoy walking, it is close to the stunning South West Coastal Path for some spectacular walks. Step back in time by visiting the Old Guild Hall Museum, or wander the narrow cobbled streets, and sample the delights of the town’s award winning restaurants and cafes. The town is a friendly place with masses of Cornish atmosphere.

A short drive away is the picturesque village of Polperro with its winding streets and whitewashed cottages. Its tiny harbour was once a thriving centre for the area's smuggling of brandy and tobacco. A little further is the delightful harbour town of Fowey, or take the coastal path to explore the secluded coves of Talland and Lanivet Bay. Enjoy a day out on the railway taking the scenic Looe Valley line to Liskeard.

Looe is a great base in which to explore Cornwall and Devon. Explore and discover over six thousand years of legend, tradition and heritage from the moors, mines and mansions of the region. There are beaches to suit everyone, including the spectacular 4 mile stretch of Whitsand Bay which is a 15 minute drive away.

Spring and summer are not the only times to visit Looe as there are events all year round such as an annual literary festival, Looe music festival, Looe Carnival, raft racing and even an annual rubber duck race! At Christmas, the town sparkles with illuminations along the quay. Other festivities include a fair, torch-lit procession, disco and choral service. And on New Year’s Eve, there’s a fancy dress party throughout the town and a spectacular firework display.

Other local and nearby attractions include:

- The Monkey Sanctuary

- Eden Project

- Carnglaze Caverns

- Fishing trips

- Boat trips

- Bodmin Moor

- Adrenalin Quarry

- Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park

- Lost Gardens of Heligan

- Porfell Wildlife Park

- Charlestown

- Polruan

There really is plenty to keep all the family entertained and busy or relaxed and tranquil. Visit Looe for a great family holiday!
