The cottage is perfectly placed in Looe and is beautifully presented. We loved it.
Gorgeous little cottage with three lovely sized and beautifully presented bedrooms. The bathroom and additional separate toilet were fantastic too. The kitchen had most things we needed, a couple of big spoons wouldn’t go amiss though. The living room was comfy for the four of us but would be a squeeze for six and we found the sofas very low (we are all 5’10” and taller!). A little annoyed that the recycling bin was as full as could be throughout our stay (it was emptied the day we left after a week) but it didn’t deter from us having a wonderful time. We enjoyed wandering around Looe. I got up twice to see the sunrise which was incredible as the mist on the sea was rolling across the waves and the fishing boats were bobbing along. Would recommend to anyone!
Great that it was dog friendly too. Toby loved it. He grumbled a little on the first night but only due to the noises around the cottage being different and other people coming in and out of adjoining properties. Thank you so much.
Many thanks for your review, I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Curlews.
There were some big serving spoons at the property. I will ensure that these are replaced. Apologies for the recycling bin not having been emptied, these are supposed to be emptied regularly, I have put a complaint into the company who manage the bins.
I hope to hear from you again and I have refunded your Owners Direct service charge.
Best wishes, Julie
Great location, very comfortable, a home from home
Curlews is located very close to the Looe beach and its pier, ideally located for morning strolls for a coffee or two. It is also very close to the restaurants and pubs, and there is a well stocked Co-Op minutes a very short walk away.
We toured around the area during our visit, loads to do and see. Recommend Polperro & Seaton. You can't go wrong anywhere. The cottage is very well equipped to a high standard. Clean, tidy and comfortable.
The reserved parking is very close and takes all the stress out of finding somewhere for the car. You can get quite next to the cottage by driving carefully through the narrow lanes for unloading and loading but you risk a ticket. We got away with it. We will definitely visit Curlew again.
Thanks for your great review Rob and I’m delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable break at Curlews. I look for are to hearing from you again. Julie
Lovely setting well stocked cottage felt really homely even a Christmas tree !!
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Curlews, Lisa. I hope to hear from you again.

What a little gem, ideally situated for beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. Everything you need is at hand for self catering,however the only self catering we did was pour a bowl of cereal. Curlews is ideal for visiting some of the well known sites. We did the Eden Project, Gardens of Heligan, the Looe to Polperro walk stopping at Talland Bay for tea and cake (last bit of the walk is is a killer as part of the coastal path is closed. ) This names just a few of the places we visited. Had a fabulous meal at Trawlers on the Quay in Looe. Every meal we had was gorgeous, fish especially. The one thing we do not miss is the seagulls first thing in the morning when the fishermen brought in their catch. Mind you we were at the seaside.
Julie you have done a sterling job with making the cottage like home, love everything about the place. One little thing I would like to point out is the wooden bottom step, perhaps a little marker on it to differentiate between the step and the wooden floor as it tends to blend in, I missed it on the first morning nearly went flying.
I would just like to say thank you for a fabulous holiday venue.
Many thanks for your shining review and I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Curlews. Looking forward to hearing from you again.
Up to date, but cozy, with all mod cons.
The house was so well equipped, really comfortable beds, and sofa's, a lot of fridge space, very very clean, and well organized. A real treat, with a lovely kitchen and bathrooms. Location was perfect. Julie the owner has been so easy to work with, always answering any mails upon receipt, and nothing was too much hassle. Would highly recommend Looe and esp. this holiday home, perfect. Gail
Hi Gail, I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay at Curlews and thank you for your great review. I hope to hear from you again. Best wishes, Julie
Very comfortable accommodation.
Would have been 5 stars but for the slight damp musky odour when we arrived but odour not noticeable after an hour or two. Beds comfortable. Foam mattress didn't suit me though(overheating in bed). WiFi great, TV great, parking fantastic very close by. Although I know it's a fisherman's cottage the wife and I struggled with the staircase which is very steep, very narrow & turns very sharply (nearly spiral). That's all the negatives really. We had a great holiday there and would come again also found locals were very helpful & pleasent. No need for outside space at this property because the beach is less than 1 minute from the door. My children loved it here. No problems at all and everything went smoothly for us. Happy Holidaying at Curlews.
Many thanks for your review Sean. I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that your children loved the property.
Regarding the points you have raised. As you probably read in the manual at the property, damp is a very common problem with many of the period properties in Cornwall in general. I have had as much done to rectify the problem as possible, but it is mainly due to the property having been rendered and also double glazing having been fitted. It is kept under control by the centrifugal extractor fans that I have had fitted. Unfortunately when you visited, the fan in the bathroom was not working and I believe there had just been a period of heavy rainfall and very damp weather. New (silent) fans have been ordered and will be fitted shortly.
I'm sorry the memory foam mattress didn't suit you, most people have found them super comfortable and they are certainly more comfortable than my mattress at home!
The stairs are fairly steep, as pointed out in the property details within my listing, due to this being a very old property, however they are certainly nowhere near as steep as many old properties in the area. I would not describe them as being 'very steep'. There is a curve, but they are definitely not like a spiral staircase and neither would I describe the staircases as particularly narrow. I do state in my details that the stairs may not be suitable for the elderly or infirm.
I'm glad that these problems did not spoil your enjoyment.
Best regards, Julie
Spesiell interesse helligdager:
Hytta ligger ideelt til for turgåere, med noen fantastiske turer på dørstokken (det er svært nær noen av de fantastiske National Trust turer inkludert South West kyststien og nærliggende Bodmin Moor). Det er også et populært sted valg for de som er interessert i ridning, fiske, hai fiske, dykking og seiling.
Coast / Beach:
Eiendommen ligger bokstavelig talt bare ett minutts gange fra stranden og havnen, og ligger nær den fantastiske South West Coastal Path for noen spektakulære turer. Polperro og Eden Project er en kort kjøretur unna.
Nærmeste togstasjon er Looe, som er en ti minutters gange fra eiendommen. Dette er en gren linje fra Liskeard, med en vanlig tog opererer direkte til og fra London. Det er en vakker reise så mye av ruten går langs kysten.
Som Looe er bare litt inn i Cornwall, er det svært nær Plymouth og ca 4 timers kjøring fra London (i god trafikk. Det anbefales at du reiser veldig tidlig om morgenen for å unngå trafikk, spesielt i høysesong).
Alle fasiliteter er på dørstokken - noen fantastiske restauranter, som serverer den kritikerroste nytrukket Looe bay fisk / sjarmerende butikker og supermarkeder og mange lokale puber. Også et perfekt sted for å utforske gledene av Cornwall og Devon. Enkel tilgang til Devon Highway og sør vest kyst jernbanelinjen.
