This property is absolutely spectacular we stayed here a few years ago everything about it. I would recommend this to everyone as a 5*.
Absolutely fantastic break. Captains Cottage is in a really quiet secluded lane with only 4 or 5 properties beyond. Access vie two single track roads (with passing points) the property is located in a beautiful spot surrounded by farmland. The cottage was immaculate on arrival, very clean and bright throughout. The property was ample in size for the four of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs) and there was a lovely welcome pack when we arrived which we tucked into. This is really appreciated after a long drive from the Midlands. The property is well equipped with everything you could need and is very comfortable / cosy. There re some great places nearby, from Fowey, Polperro and Looe to the West to Seaton, and Cawsand/Kingsand in the East. Great value for money and the two weeks we stayed was sublime. We hope to return in the future.
Just returned from a much needed winter break at The Captain’s Cottage near Looe. This is a repeat visit to Captain’s Cottage. We’ve really enjoyed our visits on previous occasions and love the area and fantastic beach walks. The cottage is immaculate, clean, light and modern with every mod con you need. Beds very comfortable. The wood burner is an added bonus. Lovely treats left by the owner were really appreciated. Dog friendly. We’re particular about where we stay and this ticks all the boxes. Great location for accessing other areas of Cornwall. The coastal town of Looe is a short drive away. Lovely beach and harbour - lots to do locally for couples and families. Would recommend the Cornish Cream Tea - delicious. We will be returning.
Perfect cottage situated in a quiet location.
Well equipped with everything you need for a ‘home from home’ stay.
Nice and clean, lovely treat on arrival and a fabulous base for discovering Cornwall.
Loved it, thank you so much Captain’s Cottage xx
We were looking for a comfortable, characterful, dog friendly cottage for an early Autumn getaway in Cornwall, and happened upon this little gem. Very convenient for dog friendly beaches and walks. Excellent dog friendly pubs and great farm shop selling local produce, The cottage was clean, very comfortable and well equipped and a great base to explore Cornwall from.
Very comfortable and stylish. Lots of nice treats on arrival and well equipped for our two dogs. About ten minute drive to the nearest beach and pub.
We'd booked to come and stay at Captains Cottage last year after seeing all the amazing reviews. A friend stayed prior to our holiday this year and had an amazing time, so we were very excited to go on our much anticipated holiday.
We've stayed in lots of holiday rentals in Cornwall but I have to say Captains Cottage was by far the most comfortable, well equipped, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It definitely felt five star. We took our two Cockapoos, Charlie and Max, and they absolutely loved the location of the property and the woodland walk from the doorstep, which we did most days, not to mention the trip to the local pub!
The cottage is situated down a quiet country lane and feels off the beaten track to begin with, but is actually very well located to Looe town, Whitsand Bay, Polperro, Kingsands and Cawsands, Talland and other great little places to explore. Especially when all you crave is peace and quiet after a busy week at work!
The cottage is light and airy with lots of modern touches. All too often we book dog friendly accommodation and its brown sofas, brown carpet and brown decor is dull, boring and lacking that homely feel. Captains is far from that. It feels like the perfect coastal retreat. Very near to some fabulous beaches, but just far enough away from the noise and throngs of holiday’s maker in town at this time of year.
The owner recommended lots or great places and dog friendly beaches to visit; we would never have gone to otherwise. We enjoyed hidden or less well-known beaches to ourselves, while everyone headed for the very busy local beach in town.
With so many places still to explore, we cannot wait to return. I think we may have found the perfect dog friendly and human friendly holiday cottage!
I nearly didn't write this review, mainly because I would like to keep this hidden gem to myself, but credit where credit is due, this place is fabulous and having helped my family run a boutique B&B myself some years ago, I know only too well, how difficult it can be to maintain such accommodation to such a high standard, whilst being dog and child friendly.
