The West Country region
Cornwall with its dramatic coastline and romantic history has long held a place of special affection in the hearts of British holiday makers and foreign visitors alike. The rugged coastline and superb beaches combine to offer some of the most glorious scenery to be found in these islands.
Inland too the rugged moors and softer country lanes offer endless opportunities for further exploration and on those cloudier days the Eden Project, Falmouth National Maritime Museum and the Tate at St. Ives offer splendid under cover diversions.The National Trust is also well represented in Cornwall with miles of unspoiled coastline and many fine houses and gardens open to the public including the amazing Lost Gardens of Heligan. The many other gardens in Cornwall are a special delight in the spring when they provide a blaze of dramatic colours.
The delightful working town of Looe (ideal for winter breaks as well, as it is busy & open throughout the year!) is easily reached by road and has the added advantage of being served by a pretty branch line connecting at Liskeard with the main London to Penzance line. Local bus services connect to Polperro and outlying villages and the city of Plymouth is also served by regular connections. Liskeard is the nearest point (about 8 miles) for connections with the National Express coach network. Local taxis are plentiful and inexpensive.Also readily available are excellent water-sports facilities, fishing, diving, and boat hire, golf courses and pony trekking. The town has plenty of good restaurants and excellent fish and chips!! There are bakeries, food and clothes shops For wet days the city of Plymouth is only a half hour away with Truro just about an hours drive. The north Cornish coast - Padstow, St.Ives etc can also be reached in about an hour. Closer by the picturesque villages of Polperro and Fowey offer quaint streets with pretty shops. The link to Fowey by car ferry or from Polruan by foot ferry.

"Lovely flat in great location"
This lovely little well equipped flat provided us with the perfect base for exploring this part of Cornwall. Great view across the harbour to East Looe, very friendly and helpful local people, good restaurants a short walk across the bridge, proximity to Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan - so may boxes ticked for us - we really enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed for a second week.

"Cosy with amazing views"
A great location with amazing views across the harbour. The apartment is very comfortable with a homely feel. All the facilities you could wish for making it a great place to stay if the weather isn't too good! The location is perfect for the great range of restaurants in Looe and very central for day trips around Cornwall. Highly recommended.

"a beautifully kitted out flat with a superb harbour view, conveniently situated"
Most pleasant neighbourhood with a lovely old church, a local pub, The Jolly Sailor, with Cornish singing evenings, a delicatessen and a mini market. Almos at the starting point of a
glorious weaterly promenade and further along a beautiful coastal path to Polperro.

"Fabulous accommodation & Beautiful views!"
We stayed at Polmear for a week and it instantly felt like it was a cosy home away from home. Gorgeous apartment - with the most beautiful views of the pretty little seaside town.
We had great sunny blue skies all week and sat outside on the balcony indulging in cream teas - watching at the fishermen and the tides come in and out - it was simply stunning!
I thought the apartment was beautifully decorated and loved the seaside theme! it was very clean, comfortable and had everything you need.
There is also a few shops only a couple of minutes walk down the road & the main town a quick boat ride across the harbour if you don't wish to walk the way round too - which was fun!
As a photographer I found Looe absolutely great for seascapes, landscapes and got some awesome shots from this holiday!
I cannot recommend this place enough - everything you need and more!
