The Boathouse provides modern and stylish accommodation for two arranged over two floors, enhanced by original artworks and complimentary wireless internet.

On the ground floor is the open plan living area with a stable door, comfy sofa with matching footstool, a dining table seating two and the well appointed, fully equipped kitchen area, with oven, grill, hob, microwave, toaster and washer/dryer.

For your entertainment, a wall mounted 32’’ HD/TV/DVD/radio and DVD collection, a portable BOSE SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker, with great sound quality (simply pair your smart device via AUX or Bluetooth and enjoy your music!), and a selection of games.

A spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom, cosy and styled in white with 24” HDTV/DVD/Radio, a built-in wardrobe (storing the iron and ironing board) and hairdryer. Adjacent to the bedroom is a stunning shower room, fully tiled, with contemporary fittings, white Egyptian cotton bathrobes and towels.

THE KITCHEN

We love cooking! Time together on holiday in the kitchen with friends, music and a bottle of wine, cooking with the family, or preparing a romantic dinner for two is great fun, and we try to support that with a well equipped and stocked kitchen. We keep a small larder of cooking basics, such as herbs, spices, salt, peppercorns, olive oil, vinegar, stock cubes, flour, sugar etc, as well as supplies such as tea, coffee, freezer bags, foil, grease proof paper, cling film and cleaning items. All the things you need on a self-catering holiday but don't necessarily want to bring with you or buy and carry home. We do not charge for this, and cannot guarantee these items will definitely be available, everything is simply what we and our guests buy and leave for others to enjoy, please feel free to use the store and add to it. If we all in someway replenish what we use, donate a replacement, or simply add something else to the larder, we can all enjoy the benefit now and next time!

You'll find a Guest Manual in The Boathouse full of information and tips for your stay. Unless you need us, we'll leave you in peace, undisturbed to enjoy a cosy cottage and explore Looe and its charming surroundings.

STRICTLY NO SMOKING!

THE AREA

Just a three minute walk from The Boathouse and you'll find yourself on the South West Coast Path, miles of superb, breathtaking coastline. Whether you're looking for an afternoon stroll with spectacular views or a challenging hike, such as a 13 mile walk to beautiful Rame Head, you'll find it all here.The South West Coast Path continues to the west from Hannafore Point in West Looe, taking in more stunning beauty spots such as Talland Bay, Polperro, Lantivet Bay and Lantic Bay. Check our Photo Gallery for pictures. Walk to the ancient fishing village of Polruan, approximately 4 hours, stop for well earned Fish & Chips (we'll send you a link to our Local Tips map!) and take the passenger ferry across the estuary to picturesque Fowey town. You can always take the bus back (check local timetables) to Looe from Polruan Quay! There are a wealth of local attractions easily accessible from The Boathouse including; Talland Bay, the picturesque fishing port of Looe Polperro, The Woolly Monkey Sanctuary, the internationally renowned Eden Project, Tate Gallery St Ives, several National Trust properties, including Lanhydrock, Cotehele and Antony House as well as beautifully rugged Bodmin Moor and a variety of beautiful , sandy beaches, bays and hidden coves skirting our stunning Cornish coastline.

In East Looe you will find all the shopping and other facilities you would require less than a minute's walk from the Boathouse. Including groceries, bakers, chemists, banks, souvenirs, boutiques, post office etc. There is a Morrison's supermarket in Liskeard (8 miles), ASDA and Sainsbury's in Bodmin (19 miles) and a Waitrose in Saltash (15 miles).

Between the end of May and middle of September, the weekday Liskeard-Looe service runs all day (not evenings or night) at intervals of between one and two hours. A trip on the railway from Looe to Liskeard, or beyond, is a favourite outing for holidaymakers as the Looe Valley line is very scenic.

NEW YEAR'S CELEBRATION

On New Year's Eve, Looe has a surprisingly large celebration. It is one of the UK's Top Ten Destinations for New Year, and the small fishing town, usually quiet in winter, due to the largely seasonal economy, is host to an influx of visitors. People flock the streets in their hundreds, wearing fancy dress, a tradition upheld by all ages. The crowds begin the evening in the town and slowly move towards the seafront for a fireworks display, and the announcement of the New Year.

GETTING HERE & PARKING

Car - East Looe, with its narrow winding lanes, is a traffic restricted zone, with access for local residents only, making it very pedestrian friendly. Although there is no on-site parking for The Boathouse ample long-stay public parking is available about a 7-8 minute walk away in West Looe at the Millpool Car Park. We recommend guests use the Millpool car park.Motorcycles can park free in designated bays and areas within the car park where no obstruction would be caused, otherwise charges apply.Pay to park using your mobile telephone: A weekly ticket for cars, costing £30, can be only be purchased for the Millpool Car Park using RinGo. The telephone and location numbers are displayed at the pay point in the car park. Simply call the number, quote your car's registration number and the Millpool Car Park location number. Payments accepted via VISA, MasterCard, Maestro and SOLO.

There are also two small short-stay car parks in East Looe. Both are very busy during high season and holiday periods. The Quayside Car Park (closer to The Boathouse) is more expensive and much smaller then the Millpool car park. There is another small short-stay car park between the surgery and the petrol station as you enter Looe on the A387. This car park also fills up quickly during high season and holidays.

Rail - There is a branch line railway between Liskeard and Looe. National network rail services from Plymouth, Exeter, Bristol and London and from Birmingham and places further north stop at Liskeard en route to Penzance. Between the end of May and middle of September, the weekday Liskeard-Looe service runs all day (not evenings or night) at intervals of between one and two hours.

Just a three minute walk from The Boathouse and you find yourself on the South West Coast Path, miles of superb, breathtaking coastline. Whether you are looking for an afternoon stroll with spectacular views or a challenging hike, such as a 13 mile walk to beautiful Rame Head, you will find it all here.

There is a branch line railway between Liskeard and Looe. National network rail services from Plymouth, Exeter, Bristol and London and from Birmingham and places further north stop at Liskeard en route to Penzance. Between the end of May and middle of September, the weekday Liskeard-Looe service runs all day (not evenings or night) at intervals of between one and two hours. A trip on the railway from Looe to Liskeard, or beyond, is a favourite outing for holidaymakers as the Looe Valley line is very scenic.

Looe remains a fishing town, and several fish dealers operate from the docks of East Looe. With its fleet of small fishing boats returning their catches to port daily, Looe has a reputation for producing excellent fresh fish. The town is also a centre for shark fishing, and is the home of the Shark Angling Club of Great Britain.

Looe's main business today is tourism, with much of the town given over to hotels, guest houses and holiday homes, along with a large number of pubs, restaurants, and shops selling beach equipment, ice cream and Cornish pasties.

Inland from Looe lie many camping and caravan sites, as well as a famous Woolly monkey sanctuary. Other local attractions include the beaches, sailing, fishing and diving, and spectacular coastal walks (especially that via Talland to Polperro.

Several stately homes, including Port Eliot Estate, Antony House, Cotehele, Mount Edgcumbe, and Lanhydrock House, as well as the Eden Project near St Austell may be visited by tourists who can travel by car.

Outside the busy summer months, the town remains a centre for shopping and entertainment for local villagers. There is a tradition of the townsfolk wearing fancy dress on New Year's Eve, when the streets are thronged with revellers in inventive outfits. Looe has been on the list of the top 10 places in the UK to celebrate New Year.

Looe is being regenerated, like many other ports, to serve as a small cargo port. On the high ground north of East and West Looe there are many modern houses and a recreational area called 'The Downs'.
East Looe centres on its broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier, creation of Joseph Thomas, a new lifeboat station and St Mary's Church. Stretching back from here is a grid of narrow streets forming the main business area of the town, packed with many small shops, restaurants and pubs, and the Old Guildhall, now a museum. Along the estuary lies the quay, with several fish dealers. Towards the bridge lies the Victorian Guildhall, 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).
On the hilltop above East Looe lies Shutta, and beyond that the Sunrising housing estate and Looe Community School. Along the cliffs to the east is Plaidy Beach, and further on the bay and village of Millendreath with another beach.
West Looe spreads west from the bridge on the Polperro Road towards Sclerder, and along the river south of the bridge, with hotels, restaurants and boarding houses along the waterfront and houses climbing the perilous cliff above, towards a cluster of shops and businesses and the Church of St Nicholas.
Further south along the coast road is Hannafore Point, marking the edge of Looe Harbour, with to the west the wide, stony Hannafore beach, facing across a narrow channel to Looe Island (officially called St. George's Island). Slightly inland is the hamlet of Portlooe. Beyond lies a coastal path leading to the hamlets of Porthallow and Talland, and from there on to Polperro. Two towers mark one end of a nautical measured mile, the other end is marked by two towers near Talland Bay.
