Thank you for your kind words, with this years amazing weather it's as good as being in the med!
The valley is very peaceful and we have pretty Looe just 1 mile away, with quirky shops to wander around, a good selection of restaurants and a small nightclub. There are lovely walks from the villa, through the woods, which are blanketed with Bluebells in the Spring or a half an hour stroll across the cliff tops from Millendreath into Looe. If you are feeling adventurous you can take the beach route at low tide exploring the rock pools as you go.
At high tide Black Rock beach is small, however once the tide is out it reveals a big sandy beach and dozens of rock pools. Millendreath has a jetty, which provides enclosed sheltered bathing at high tide or a place for the local or visiting fisherman to wile away a few hours fishing
A car is definitely recommended however the Looe Valley Railway connects Looe to Liskeard and beyond. There are local buses and taxis and of course there is the option of bringing your bicycle or best walking boots if you really want to explore the fabulous Cornish countryside.
