Looe and Polperro (5 miles away) are traditional ancient Cornish fishing villages. Looe is reputed to have the freshest fish in the UK.

“POLDARK” BBC Series WOW - isn’t Cornwall Beautiful! The main locations filmed are Levant, near St Ives, approx. 70 miles away, Charlestown which is about 55 miles away and Bodmin Moor which is just up the road about 15 miles away. There are numerous Old Mining Engine Houses at Minions on Bodmin Moor besides its dramatic landscape and there is the Hurlers Stone Circles, Ancient Burial Sites. There are also any beautiful cliff tops and coves within a few minutes drive from Looe, equalling those captured by the BBC whilst filming Poldark.

From the Owner

We can park the car and leave it for the whole week whilst we relax and unwind. On visiting Looe we still, numerous years later,have not seen and done everything that is available to do within the walking distance of the cottage. Year on year a little more seems to be added or another event organised within its annual calendar. We can't recommend Looe enough!
