First Class as always

  • 5 of 5

The Management of this accommodation is superb, nothing is ever too much trouble. You feel at home as soon as you walk in the door and the little touches like a welcome pack are so lovely and thoughtful. We holiday here at least 4 times a year and each time is a joy. I am always sad to leave. The apartments are always clean and extremely comfortable. Looe town itself is so charming, each time we go we discover more to this beautiful place and can see us going back for many years to come; I have utterly fallen in love with all it has to offer 💕

Very comfortable, homely and clean

  • 5 of 5

We stay at the Mainsail multiple times every year and it is just like returning home.

The management of the property is faultless and we are always made to feel extremely welcome; nothing is ever too much trouble.

Looe is also a lovely place to stay with lots to do in the town, and other little villages are easily accessible too so please explore.

I am always sad to leave and start planning the next visit by the time I get home.

If I could give 6 stars I would!

  • 5 of 5

We hired Clipper House and the two flats above for a week-end family party and it was truly excellent! Sam is the perfect host - nothing was too much trouble. He helped us configure the downstairs rooms, sort out the music, decorations and all the little details that made it a truly memorable week-end. He even found us some extra vases and helped arrange the flowers! We did our own catering and the commercial-style kitchen was great for this. Then there was the bar with plenty of glasses and fridge space, the games room and the utility space which was great for guests to make their own teas and coffees etc. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and there were some lovely extra touches such as bread, milk and butter. Sam was extremely kind, patient and attentive and helped us to organise what was quite a complex event. Oh, and the views have to be seen to be believed - beautiful views from the lounge, front bedrooms and the flats with their little balconies.A truly wonderful experience!!!

A great break with stunning views.

  • 4 of 5

Breathtaking bird's eye views of Looe, the river, harbour, beach and sea. Be advised that the whole area is hilly and has steep paths. Well presented and comfortable apartment. Sam takes care with his guests and we had a wonderful surprise of fresh scones, bread and accompianments on our arrival. Looe was a beautiful town. We were able to drive to the North Coast to visit Tintagel Castle and Port Isaac, aka Port Wenn in Doc Martin, in a day.

The sandy beach at Looe is a popular family destination. Children love to scramble among the many rock pools, and can also enjoy swimming in calm waters. There are also opportunities to try boating and sporting activities in the nearby bay.

Further Details:

The busy fishing port of Looe is one of south Cornwall’s prettiest resorts. Sandy beaches, scenic boat tours and excellent fish restaurants are all within easy reach. And if you want to abandon the car for the day, take the train that runs between Looe and Liskeard. Further afield, this ancient county claims legendary stories of King Arthur and daring pirate raids. There’s an assortment of boat trips, offering chances to fish or simply view the sights. St. George’s Island is just off the beach or you can travel along the coast. Seasonal activities. Looe is an all-year-round resort. Spring and summer are the best times for enjoying the many outdoor activities, including coastal walks, swimming and water sports. The summer highlight is Festival of the Sea, in June, offering a host of competitions, dancing, craft fairs, street entertainments, exhibitions and fireworks. At Christmas, the town glitters 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 and spectacular firework display.
