Interaction with guests
Due to family and work commitments in London, we are unable to live at the cottage full-time so, after spending some time lovingly renovating it, we decided to let our beautiful and historic home for other families to enjoy and create holidays to remember. We very much hope that you, your families and friends will love The Old Vicarage as much as we do. We have a local caretaker who manages the property for us and who will assist you in the event of an emergency; other than that our house is your home during your holiday and you will bbe left in peace to enjoy it. We both enjoy hosting and contact with our guests so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about The Old Vicarage or Looe more generally.

About the neighbourhood
East Looe centres on its broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier (the creation of Joseph Thomas, who lived at The Old Vicarage), a new lifeboat station and St Mary's Church. Stretching back from the church is a grid of narrow streets forming the main business area of the town, packed with many small shops, restaurants and pubs. Along the estuary lies the quay with its fish merchants. Towards Looe Bridge lies the Victorian Guildhall (which is now a museum), and just north of the bridge the railway station. This is the terminus of the Looe Valley branch line to Liskeard (at Liskeard, the line connects with the main Plymouth to Penzance Great Western Main Line and to London Paddington). ​ On the hilltop above East Looe lies Shutta. Along the cliffs to the east is Plaidy Beach, ...
Getting around
CAR: We are fortunate to own a private parking space at the rear of the property, by the seafront, which can be used for no additional cost. Guests with additional vehicles are able to offload along the side of the cottage and use the ample long-stay public parking available a short stroll away. RAIL: The house is a 10 minute walk from Looe train station. There is a branch line railway between Liskeard and Looe. National network rail services from Plymouth, Exeter, Bristol, London, Birmingham and places further north stop at Liskeard. BUSES: Service 72 (Polperro - Looe - Plymouth) Service 73 (Polperro - Looe - Liskeard station and town) AIRPORTS: Newquay - 33 miles Exeter - 66 miles Bristol - 127 miles
