About the property

Cottage in East Looe, Cornwall, England - Less than 1 min Walk to Sandy Beach, harbour and award Winning Restaurants

The Coachman is set in a prime location in the heart of old East Looe, nestled away in Looe's quaint backstreets and less than a minutes walk to the safe, sandy beach, harbour, coastal path, traditional pubs and award-winning restaurants. Crafted from local slate and stone, The Coachman provides a spacious family home perfect for summer or winter. Original features include exposed beams, decorative floor tiles and wood burning stove. The open plan design is ideal for family and friends to enjoy sociable evenings around the huge dining table, relax in front of the delightful wood-burner with a roaring fire and watch a movie or sit outside the French doors and watch the world go by with a glass of wine in the pedestrian walkways. Upstairs are 5 spacious bedrooms and 2 luxury bath/shower rooms.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The property was spacious especially the bedrooms, more than enough for a party of 10

Close to the beach and a short walk to the town centre

Kitchen well equipped but a bit small, dishwasher good takes a large load, good sharp kitchen knives

Showers need new seals and the property could do with a deep clean

Daves for best fish and chips, mackerel fishing good value for money

Crabbing a must.

Local shops very good excellent service from very friendly people who could not do enough for you.

Cake shop great brought birthday cake excellent

Zip wire in Liskeard brilliant

Eden project a must visit for families

Great family holiday would reccomend
