This really is a delightful cottage, tastefully refurbished and perched on the hillside with lovely views from the sunny decking of the wooded valley and upper Looe river. Here you can sit and soak up the sun, safe from the noise and bustle of Looe whilst enjoying a quiet read or an al fresco meal as you watch the sun sink behind the hills. The town itself, with its vibrant shops, cafes and restaurants, sandy beach and famous Banjo Pier, is only 10 minutes walk and the quintessential Cornish fishing village of Polperro is a short drive away. The South West Coastal path passes through Looe and offers some lovely walks with spectacular sea views, plus the whole of Celtic Cornwall is easily accessible for the explorers amongst you. For those arriving by train, the cottage is conveniently located just one minute by taxi or a few minutes walk uphill. Lowena retains many period features, has pine floorboards and is beautifully presented with a modern kitchen and spacious dining area. With its fabulous views and welcoming home from home feel, it is a perfect base for a memorable holiday.
