Overview

About the property

House in Plaidy, Nr. Looe, Cornwall, England - Quiet Location With Access To The Private Beach From The Garden

Seaside House is a beautifully modernised light and airy 1920's upside down house featuring stripped floors, open fireplace and spacious sun lounge in the living area. It's been in the family since the early 1980s and has been carefully renovated most recently with a high spec kitchen and bathroom, redecorated and new carpets and flooring throughout. The property has 5 bedrooms sleeping 9 with a vanity unit in each bedroom (apart from the single) and a separate cloakroom upstairs.

About Jo Creed

The Creed family have owned Seaside House since the early 80's with ownership passing to Matthew from his father. We've been renovating and improving since the early 90's and it is a much loved second home, renamed to Seaside House by our children when they were small. We run our own building supplies company in Gloucestershire, and Jo works part time as a trainer in Financial Services in Cheltenham. We have two children aged 18 & 16, a labrador & 4 chickens.

Why Jo Creed chose South East Cornwall

Seaside House is warm and cosy when it's raining, light and airy when the sun is shining. You'll find everything you need within the house and as it's right on the coast path you can walk in either direction with Looe only 1 mile away, a characterful working fishing town full of bars and restuarants and shopping opportunities. Polperro isn't far either, and there are so many places to explore in the surrounding area.

What makes this house unique

The sea couldn't be closer and you'll be hard pushed to beat our view

Family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had simply the most perfect week in the February half term. The house was beautiful and the sound of the sea, just heavenly. To spend quality time in such a wonderful place with grandchildren, parents and children was priceless. The weather was unseasonably warm and we made the most of it. Thank you!!!

Fab house, location and facilities especially the sound of the waves from inside the house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our 2 cockapoos (Monte & Barnie) stayed at the house for 5 nights. The weather wasn't great, however, the location was perfect for walking, trips and relaxation.

The views from the house are spectacular and the location is secluded and quiet (apart from the waves) which is what we were looking for in a location. The house had all the mod cons you would need and the owners were more than helpful when required.

The local villages and places to visit were all very accessible which was a major plus or us. We would have loved to extend our stay if it wasn't for commitments back home.

The only critique was there was no gates surrounding the property to prevent our dogs from wandering off as our youngest did quite frequently. Apart from that our trip was fab and we would definitely return again.

Perfect Cornish Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a perfect location with the most stunning view, the beach at the end of your garden. The property is maintained to a high standard and is modern but also has that 'Cornish' feel. It is just perfect for a family holiday with Looe within walking distance over the cliff path. We have stayed there 4 times now over the past 10 years and look forward to returning in the future. Perfect for larger groups with plenty of space.
