    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    You couldn't get closer to the beach in Looe unless you sat on it. These self-catering holiday homes in Cornwall, near England, have everything you need for a romantic holiday or short break. Take your wallet, partner and shoes if you are planning on walking further than the glorious sandy beach.

    You will find everything else you need for a perfect vacation in the restored Cornish fisherman's cottage. The massive Georgian stone walls will mean you will be cool in summer, warm and cosy in winter.

    A sea front parking space for one car is included in the price along with super-fast wifi.

Spent a lovely weekend here at Easter, the location is perfect, the cottage was spotless, and was equipped with everything a family of five may require and more. more

It is magic to see the word spotless and it reflects the hard work done by our house-keeper. more
