We chose this property mainly due to the picture and great reviews. We were new to this area and were delighted by Looe. The apartment does not disappoint, it is clean, tastefully-furnished and so peaceful after a busy day of sightseeing....you ascend the hill, the steps up to the front door and then you feel instantly at home.
The locals are very friendly, the pub at the bottom of the hill (The Globe) is well worth a visit, happy hour is very popular and the food is reasonable and tasty too. Dog friendly with some resident canine characters that entertain you while you soak up the sun from the patio. We had extremely sunny weather during our stay.
We did not use our car during our 5 night stay, safely parked in the allocated space, we walked everywhere, did the train ride to Liskeard and the coastal walk to Polperro, returning via boat to Looe pier. Thoroughly enjoyable and we slept like babies in the amazing bed. The decking area is great to watch the wildlife, the ever-changing tides and helps you just chill out and forget work for a while.
We hope to return and would love to see Looe during a different season.
Riverbella is a charming apartment with its own private sun deck conveniently situated just 10 - 15 minutes walk from the centre of Looe and 2 minutes from the station.
Having its own parking space is a very big advantage. This means places like Polperro, Fowey, Lanhydrock, the Eden Project to name but a few are easily accessible.
The accommodation is very good with a double room with a larger than king sized bed and a second bedroom that has 2 singles with the option of converting one to a double. The lounge diner is very comfortable and cosy, while being a good size. The kitchen is well appointed and should meet all one’s culinary needs. The decor Is very tasteful and it is obvious that a lot of thought and time has been put into achieving its pleasing image.
The sun deck is a delight, particularly in the morning and evening, great for breakfast, sundowners and dining. It boasts the most superb views of the river which are forever changing with the tides, time of day, wildlife and boats.
We had a wonderful week in Looe which was enhanced by Riverbella. We will definitely come again.
This was a last minute decision to escape to Looe for the bank holiday weekend having never stayed in the Shutta area we were not sure what to expect, we were definitely not disappointed, what a gem of a place Riverbella is. The views from the amazing decking area are spectacular, a lovely place to sit any hour day or night and watch the world go by. Inside is a haven light and bright with lots of special touches. We appreciated the walk back to our temporary home it was worth every step. The parking space is a bonus. Kirsten the owner is a joy, extremely friendly and very proud of the glorious Riverbella. We will definitely be returning ❤️
Coming down the hill entering Looe, was like being in another world.
A beautiful town, with so many places of interest.
I was amazed at the friendliness of the locals. A good start.
Then on to what I can only describe as a gem of an apartment. Riverbella.
As you climb the steps to the apartment, you will see all the beauty of Cornwall.
The river and west Looe are stunning.
As you enter the apartment, you will see all the hard work done by the owner to refurbish it.
Soon you will feel at home in this cosy abode.
The decor has been lovingly designed by the owner to give you a real taste of Cornwall.
Two things I look for when traveling to whatever accommodation.
The bed and the shower.
The bed is the biggest and most comfortable I have ever slept in.
And as for the shower, I didn’t want to get out.
If you think I’m slightly impressed with this property, you are right.
The price for the week I found very competitive.
So take a look at the photos, then book it ASAP, as I hear it’s getting popular after only a few weeks.
One of my favorite places is the decking.
While the weather was bad at home, I was on the decking enjoying the wonderful Cornish climate. A glass of wine, and fabulous views.
I can’t wait to go back 10/10
