About Peter Corbett

We have been coming to holiday in Cornwall ourselves for more years than we care to remember, initially in our younger years to surf on the North coast, although if surfing is your thing the South coast has plenty to offer with the rugged Whitsand Bay only a short drive along the coast.

We visit all year round & the beauty of Looe is...its open 365 days a year!!

Peter Corbett purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Peter Corbett chose Looe

We just love the area, including wonderful coastal walks & impressive variety of restaurants to rival any big city right on your doorstep.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy sitting out with a bottle of wine after a lovely day's sun on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ideal location, great to be so close to the beach and the pubs for the evening. (Mr and Mrs Reiner)

Great place, loved being able to sit downstairs for a meal with friends while the kids watched DVDs upstairs. (The White family)

Had a great time. Loved being able to sit outside, the flowers were beautiful! (B & T Abrahams)

Beautiful cottage with a great location. The village was also pretty and it was in a good location to explore the area.

Sandpipers Cottage, Looe.

  • 4 of 5

Once again Looe has provided us with the ideal break, a complete wind down. Sandpipers is ideally located, 2 minutes from the beach in one direction and 2 minutes from shops, pubs and restaurants in the other (oh! and don't forget the pasty shop, mmmm....) that actually could be 1 minute depending on how quickly you walk, baring all this in mind the cottage is in a very quiet location. Inside it was clean and adequately furnished and provided all the facilities you might need. We had a wonderful week!

Just beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a weeks stay in this beautiful cottage. It looks lovely in the photos but is even better when you see it for real! Clean, tidy and surprisingly spacious as its over three floors. The location is perfect, within the hustle and bustle but far enough away to not be disturbed. It's literally less than a minutes walk to the beach, shops and cafes.

The area is great for kids with crabbing, boat trips, rock pools and a beautiful beach. Would highly recommend the Courtyard restaurant which is 2 minutes away from the cottage, and also a cream tea in West Looe overlooking the Estuary.

I would highly recommend Sandpipers, and can't wait to go back next year!!

Lovely little cottage

  • 4 of 5

I had a lovely stay at sandpipers, very central close to all amenities & the beech yet surprisingly quiet & peaceful no noise from late night revellers. Like all coastal resorts he only downside was parking but 35pound for a weekly pass in the car park wasn't to bad. All in all I would recommend sandpipers & would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks you very much for taking the time to review. Glad you had a good time. Yes it's a pain there is no free parking near the cottage, but there is free parking over on West Looe which is a 10 minute walk. Hope to see you again soon!

Beautiful Cottage in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a lovely break at this cottage in Looe. The location is perfect, a minute from the beach and with all the local pubs, shops and restaurants, everything you need is on your doorstep. The cottage itself was also very comfortable and homely, a home away from home, with good cooking facilities and a well stocked kitchen if you want to eat in, a comfy and cosy living room and master bedroom. The owners of the cottage have clearly gone above and beyond to make the cottage a fantastic place to stay. My girlfriend and I would highly recommend staying here.
