The England region

South Cornwall - reckoned to be Britain's most beautiful and interesting coastline - is a land of steep wooded rocky chines which lead inland from the sea along stream and river valleys. Villages spill down these craggy inlets to the water where there is often to be found an old fishing harbour, always massively defended against the rolling Atlantic winter storms, and in today's more gentle political climate usually home to yachts and fishing boats, rather than the sea-rivers, smugglers and wreckers of yore.

Mewing buzzards ride ladders of air above the craggy igneous Cornish landscape, as farmers work their herds in what is the balmiest climate in the British Isles, due to the gentle wash of the Gulf Stream along its shores. The local history is rich: the Spanish Armada may have failed in its mission, but South Cornwall saw the only successful invasion since William the Conqueror when the Spaniards briefly invaded the county.

The little-known Stannary Parliament at nearby Liskeard, which gave the tin-miners a large degree of self-rule, last sat in 1572, and the picturesque and haunting ruins of tin-mines still dot the uncompromisingly rugged but utterly beautiful landscape. The "Cornish Alps" are testimony to the once-great china clay industry, and stories of the sea - lifeboat heroes, sea-going villains and naval battles - dominate this once-remote region.

Surfing, crabbing, shark-fishing, lobster-fishing and scuba-diving are now the main activities in waters where revenue-men and smugglers and units of the Royal Navy and Napoleon's fleet once contended with cutlass and cannon.

West Country

East Looe centres on its broad sandy beach, with the distinctive Banjo Pier, 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.

Along the cliffs to the east is Plaidy Beach, and past there is the bay and village of Millendreath with another beach. Inland lies the famous woolly monkey sanctuary.

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.

Other local attractions include the beaches, sailing, fishing and diving, and spectacular coastal walks (especially that via Talland to Polperro. In the area are several stately homes, including Antony House, Cotehele, Mount Edgcumbe, and Lanhydrock House, as well as the fascinating Eden Project near St Austell.

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

“Cosy and relaxing”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

We had a short winter break at Sand Martin. The apartment is in the historic part of Looe, and is extremely cosy and comfortable. We could hear the waves at night, and it's really a short walk to the beach, and to the shops and restaurants in Looe. Even though it was January, we had some amazing sunshine and cliff walks including to Polperro. Sand Martin is immaculately presented and is perfect for a relaxing break. Highly recommended!

Thank you.

“Perfect spring retreat”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2014

Good location for beach, harbour, town centre, and walks. Well appointed clean and comfortable. Seagull chorus greets the dawn. Restricted view.

The seagull chorus can be a bit loud at this time of year because the mothers are feeding and training their young. It gets quieter later in the year. Like you I love it anyway. The cottages on the small lanes in Looe don’t have a view being at beach level. There are some properties with great views up on the cliffs, a long hike from the beach and town.

“Great location & very cosy flat!”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2013

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The location was fantastic and the cottage very beautiful and cosy. The bed was incredibly comfortable and very difficult to get out of in the morning :-) We would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends / family.

That bed seems to have been a good investment. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

“1st class accommodation”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2013

Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Everything you need is provided and is of good quality. Well equipped, well decorated and spacious. Only a few seconds from the beach and shops. Looe has all the shops you need from grocery stores to gift shops and banks, and plenty of places to eat out or take aways to eat in! one of the best places to holiday in Cornwall.

Completely self-contained.

“Superb place once again”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2013

This is my second time staying in the Sandmartin and everything was just perfect. it provided a nice little get away so I could refresh myself before the returning back to the hectic job of teaching. It has everything that you need, and the new matress for the bed was to die for, so comfortable that I seriously thought about bringing it back home with me. I will definitely be staying here again and again and again.

Thank you for your kind words. Glad someone else thinks the rather large investment in the mattress was worth while. You will be welcome to stay again and again and again.

“Perfect location”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2013

My girlfriend and i had a lovely three night stay at Sand Martin, Looe. The apartment was clean, comfortable and only a minute from the beach, shops and local restaurants. We could not fault it. Thanks for a great few days.

It is a great place to stay in the Autumn as well. The fishing keeps the town alive all through the year so it never feels out of season. I hope you will come again soon.

“Perfect little get away”

A fab little place. Stayed at the Sand Martin apartment for New Year's Eve and had a great week. A lovely little apartment which is seconds from the beach and the shops. Has everything you need and is an ideal little base. Will definitely be staying there again.

Thank you.

“Lovely location”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2012

Lovely little apartment everything you needed was catered for. Near to all amenities lots of different places to eat to suit every budget. Also lots of places to buy food to eat in if a bit of quiet time was needed. The Beach and Harbour are just on your door step with beautifull views.

Many thanks for taking the time to review our apartment.
