Luxury Self Catering Apartment With Four Poster Bed & Harbour Views



Updated: 25-Nov-2016
Studio Apartment in Looe, Cornwall - Quiet Location Overlooking The Harbour

Sail Loft Studio forms part of probably the oldest property in West Looe, once a successful carpenters house and workshop and now a recently refurbished family home, the buildings ooze history and character. Built around a central courtyard garden the Sail Loft is a single space with open vaulted ceilings, a polished timber floor, luxury furnishings, a stunning four poster bed and and great views to the harbour. Sited only 50 yards from the quay in a peaceful location, the beach and main shops are about 5 mins away by foot ferry. Just around the corner is the oldest pub in Looe, The Jolly Sailor, with shanty nights, real ale and a great collection of Whiskey. There are shops providing quality ingredients for cooking up that special meal, cafes if you fancy dining out for breakfast and local restaurants for every pocket. The South West Coast path takes you east to Downderry and beyond to Plymouth and west to Polperro and Fowey with quiet coves and beaches at Hannafore and beyond for a picnic and a bottle of wine. For more information and availability, please phone, email or text the owner Steve or click the Enquire Now button and we will reply by direct email within the hour.

About the Owner

Moving from Fowey and having rescued the house and Sail Loft from deterioration in 2010 it has been our pleasure to bring the property back to life and make it a stylish holiday studio and family home

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highly recommended - a really lovely apartment attached to a beautifully restored old house, with views of the harbour a stone's throw away. We had a great time, exploring Looe and returning to a very comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and a beautifully decorated and comfy place to stay. Thanks...

The Sail Loft was in the perfect location to discover looe.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we had hoped for. It was an ideal size for 2 people, but had everything that you would need. The location was perfect, just across the bridge from everything. It was really quiet but only 2 minutes walk from Looe town.

The loft itself was really clean and well equiped. The bed was amazingly comfortable.

I would highly recommend The Sail Loft.

Hope to return to the Sail Loft Studio!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this second story apartment in Looe overlooking the nearby river with its boats and tides and quaint seaside village. Just what we'd hoped for! The loft is just as it is described with a very complete kitchen, comfy sitting area and an elegant, comfy four poster. Everything was very clean and well maintained.Steve and Etty answered our questions about the apartment or Looe or the train or hiking opportunities. It was especially nice to be able to wash a load of clothes with Etty's help.

Amazing property, great location, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

This was the second week of our honeymoon, Steve and Etty left us a bottle of bubbly to celebrate which was lovely! The property was in an immaculate condition, bigger than we thought and included everything we could possibly need. We were also able to have secure storage for our pushbikes. The nearby beach is lovely, there are plenty of restaurants and pubs within walking distance just across the bridge or the 50p ferry if the tide is right and it's nice being the opposite side as it's a bit quieter during the busy periods.

Luxurious holiday in the middle of Looe

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Sail Loft for a week in August. The apartment is pure luxury - the comfiest bed I've ever slept in, a well kitted out kitchen and incredible views of the Looe River. We particularly liked the new Sonos system and the ability to use the sun trap courtyard garden. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well maintained, with the owners Steve and Etty just next door if you need anything.

The Sail Loft is perfectly located - on the quieter west side of the river, but only a 2 minute ferry ride or 10 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the east side. We found that there was lots to keep us busy in the week that we were there - from the beach to the pubs, coastal walks and fishing trips to trying as many ice creams as possible!

I had been recommended the apartment by a colleague, who suggested booking through the property's own website (seaside cottages in cornwall). A great tip, as I found the website easy to use and it had loads of extra information about upcoming events and places to eat/visit!

Overall a perfect holiday in the UK - we'll be back, for sure.

Perfect for two!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two very relaxing weeks at the Sail Loft Studio and I can't honestly think of any negative feedback!

Ideal accommodation and location for two people, right by the harbour but also very quiet and easy walking distance to all amenities(managed to park car 5 minutes up the road for free and used public transport for duration)

Studio is tastefully furnished and kept immaculately clean by the owners, the very friendly and helpful Steve and Etty who reside next door.

We would have no hesitation to rent again in the future.

A spacious apartment in one space.

  • 5 of 5

We went to Looe to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and were so glad that we had chosen this accommodation. Although it is all in one space, apart from the bathroom, it gives the impression of three distinct parts - kitchen, sitting room and bedroom, and has every comfort that one could expect. It is well situated in West Looe with views over the harbour and is very well fitted out. The owners are a charming couple who provide a great deal of information of a most useful sort.
