Although 2 bed roomed, the villa is compact and ideally, it is best suited to couples. There are 52 steps up to the property, please take this into account before booking. Thank you. There is a new beach front café and separate beach bar for the summer months, serving breakfasts, drinks, snacks and meas. Licenced bar. Please check Black Rock Beach Cafe on facebook for updated opening times as they tend to open the 'Cornish' way...sporadically. Great 'Foody club' nights and Sunday lunches. Booking advised.

Dogs are allowed on 'our' beach before 9am and after 6pm (May to Oct) and with no restrictions Oct to May. Also, at low tide you can walk your dog down the jetty and go over the rocks to the beautiful East beach, where there are no restrictions. It does get cut off, but is accessible for several hours making it very quiet. (Don't forget to get back before the tide comes back in, or walk along to Seaton and alternatively return by coast path!). Millendreath beach is small when the tide is in, there is seasonal kayak, paddle board, sun lounger hire and also has a jetty from which to go crabbing or enclosed bathing at high tide. £10 electricity card provided for a full weeks stay, which is usually enough without heating which is economy electric heating. Cards available on site 24 hours. Cards from £5. You will be provided with a free parking pass for your stay.

About the neighbourhood
MILLENDREATH is a small inlet with its own sandy, private beach, 1 mile from the main town of Looe to the West. It is not dog friendly. ( Plaidy beach is- 5 minute walk away) There is a tranquil air to the place as there is no through traffic. The valley was purchased by Espalier developments. It is being re marketed as Black Rock, Millendreath Much improvement has already been completed, there is now a seasonal beach front cafe, toilets and beach showers. There are coastal walks with breath-taking views in every direction; Woodland walks starting from your door and picnic areas in scenic locations. Millendreath is so secluded you may have difficulty finding it on a map, yet it is so close to some of the best known attractions in the West Country. There is a jetty which provides an enc...
Getting around
Looe train station travels to most main towns. Regular bus routes from top of the lane.
