About Maria Carnell

After working in the holiday home industry for the last 12 years in Cornwall I decided to purchase this holiday property. Being quite unique in the area it is ideally situated minutes from many beaches, the main town of Looe, and has an enclosed garden which is flat and level and provides plenty of parking for multiple guests.

Maria Carnell purchased this house in 2012

Why Maria Carnell chose South East Cornwall

We bought the property for its size, outlook and ideal location. This house is ideal for those larger parties who prefer a spacious accommodation and unlike many properties so conveniently close to Looe has ease of parking, a level site and some lovely countryside views. You have easy access to so many places of interest . If you wish to feel quietly separated from the madding crowd, yet conveniently close to all of the amenities, this is an ideal option for you. We have priced the huge accommodation competitively as we are aware of the economic climate and how expensive holidays can be, with that in mind we feel we are offering spacious and comfortable accommodation at an affordable tariff and hopefully our guests will want to return. Please see our guest reviews for further reassurance.

What makes this house unique

Waylands has a bus stop a few yards from the property with regular stops. The walking route is also yards from the property, taking you down into Looe within 25 minutes. Tencreek Holiday Park is a 5 minute walk offering on site facilities, evening entertainment and heated swimming pool, but not close enough to hear any noise disturbance. There is also a convenience shop on site for provisions. A minute drive from Looe offering more convenience stores and local amenities, lots of pubs, shops and restaurants. Long sandy beach, bustling fishing harbour and lots of trips: coastal cruise, speed boat ride, glass bottom boat trip. Many coastal walks - you can walk the whole length of the Cornish coast path.
