“Beautiful apartment with stunning views right in the heart of Looe”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A completely stress free booking and I was contacted with directions and arrival details well in advance of our stay. The owners were very quick to respond to my questions and they made it very easy to contact them.
The apartment is very well laid out with modern decor and the views are just spectacular. We travelled with our 2 year old son and felt he was very safe in the apartment even thought it is high up. The road up to the apartment is narrow and very steep but we were aware of this before we booked and actually we were pleasantly surprised because it was a lot quicker to walk to the town/beach than we thought. An ideal location for all that Looe has to offer.
Daisy's cafe just down the road was a terrific find and very child friendly!
We did have difficulty with the broadband connection but that was the only problem we experienced during our stay.
I would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

“A real gem, beautifully furnished with lovely views over Looe”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

This was the first time we'd visited Looe and found the area in general and this apartment in particular to be perfect for our short break. It's hidden away up a quiet lane from which you can access the coast path, and has great views over the harbour from the living room and main bedroom. It was nice to just sit with a book and admire the view! Only a short walk away is the centre of Looe with its small beach and good choice of restaurants. The apartment was beautifully furnished and very comfortable, with pretty much everything we needed for our stay. It's been well planned and cared for by the owners, who also provided good information and handled our booking efficiently. All in all a very relaxing break. We would certainly stay here again if we return to the area.

In common with many Looe properties, there is no parking at the apartment - you can just about drive up the steep narrow lane to drop luggage off, but it's necessary to park in the public car park 10 mins walk away. This isn't a huge problem although be aware of the steepness of the lane if you're travelling with someone with mobility problems.

“brilliant base for family week away.”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely accomodation which served all our needs. Pub meals were great and would highly recommend 'the ship' which served even the Fussiest of children. Did not eat in 'the salutation' as was only allowed to eat in dark, back room, only fit for dogs, just because kids were under 12 ( our youngest is 10) other good places to eat were the 'court yard' and ' new guinea' . thouroghly enjoyed looe, the coastal walk from looe to polperro is a must. We parked car on millpool carpark for the week for a very reasonable £30.30 using the Ringo system and did not use the car the whole week ( did not need to ) overall excellent family holiday, beach fantastic too.

“Fabulous views, comfortable apartment, very short walk from town centre”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a lovely apartment with great views to the beach, sea and river/harbour. We stayed as a family with 3 children aged 5 to 13 and whilst it isn't especially large, the apartment is well planned and has two bathrooms so we never felt cramped. It is well equipped and has dishwasher and washer/dryer. There isn't any parking space so we left our car in the Millpool car park which is around 10 mins walk away and cost £30 for the week. We had lovely weather so mainly stayed in Looe and didn't need the car often so this didn't worry us. The apartment is only 2 mins walk from centre of town, but is up a very steep but short hill so wheelchairs and prams might be tricky. You do get the great views from being higher so worth it.

“A gorgeous apartment from which to enjoy a wonderful view”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful break in Looe staying at Gwendrock Twyr.

The apartment is found at the top of the original road into Looe and is in very close proximity to the steps down to the beach which we visited every day. Twyr had wonderful facilities and we found everything we needed for our stay and some other extras besides; binoculars, games, DVDs, hairdryer.

The apartment itself is very nicely presented. The kitchen is of good quality and I imagine would be lovely to cook in, although I confess I did none besides some heating up! The living space is of good size and the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children) did not feel on top of each other. There was enough seating for all.

The bedrooms are lovely and comfortable and I enjoyed lying in bed watching the tide coming in.

Looe itself is a nice place to visit and there are enough restaurants, pubs, cafes etc to keep you out of the kitchen. We went to the beach a lot and as we have children spent some time crabbing which we all loved (and got quite competitive about!). We also walked to Polperro (5 miles along the coast path from West Looe) which was nice to visit for an afternoon.

We'll be back...
