About the property location
What can I say about the location - its absolutely fantastic. Set at the end of Dawn Road (owned by the famous comedienne Dawn French) and yards away from her own property Clipper House Hotel. A few minutes walk away from Hannafore Beach. Minutes away from the start of the fabulous coastal foot path which could take you the whole length and right down to the farthest points in Cornwall, yet for the more conservative walker, will take you to Port Nadler, Talland Bay and onto Looe's neighbouring fishing villlage of Polperro. Hannafore is an exclusive and definitely up market area within Looe, boasting fabulous individually designed houses, spaced out and promoting a truly luxury feel to where you are staying. The views are awesome, overlooking the whole of the coastline, in addition to boasting a couple of cafes, tennis courts and pitch and put. The Hannafore Point Hotel is also about 2 mins walk away and this is open to non-residents offering leisure facilities and use of the swimming pool to members of the public. A 3 min walk will see you at Tom Sawyers Tavern for good food and fine ale, also the Waterfront Cafe, again offering a good menu and drinks (subject to season opening times), and a 10 mins walk will see you down into Looe via a coastal walk where you can either get a boat taxi (tide permitting) or walk the rest of the 5 mins or so into the east side. At the west Looe harbourside there is another pub - The Jolly Sailor, Londis and Spar convenience stores and some gift/art shops. The east side offers a vast selection of pubs, shops, restaurants, cafes and art/gift shops. Looe Harbour also offers many boat trips, glass bottom boat, coastal cruise, speed boat trips and fishing trips. Further afield, as there are miles of coastline in both directions from Looe, you can choose to visit a different bay/beach each day and still you wont have travelled far from the house. There is Millendreath, Seaton, Downderry, Portwrinkle, Whitsand Bay for example in one direction, and in the other, Talland Bay, Polperro (v. small beach), Lansallos, Fowey ....and I could go on and on. Polperro is a much smaller version of Looe, quaint with its traffic free streets, good selection of pubs and restaurants and art/gift shops, fabulous working fishing harbour like Looe and again forming part of the fabulous coastal footpath. Dawn End's loaction and its amenities are what put this fabulous property in our popular list of properties to stay. Truro city about 1 hour 15 mins away, Plymouth around 35 mins drive, The Eden Project around 40 mins drive, Bodmin Moor 25 mins drive. All in all a fantastic base offering more than home from home comforts, coupled with ideal location in terms of having much to do from your immediate vicinity, yet accessible to all that Cornwall has to offer. Not recommended for people with mobility restriction due to there being a few steps up to the property itself and the tiered rear garden areas. The area of Hannafore has a hill leading down to the harbour, however also has fabulous level walks along Hananfore seafront, which is also the start of the superb coastal walk.
The Waterfront Cafe around 3 minutes walk from the house, offering a good selection of food and fine ales. The Hannafore Point Hotel 3 minutes walk - you can use the swimming pool and facilities as a non resident. There is a cafe at Hannafore on the seafront around 5/6 minutes walk away offering light meals and snacks, plus an additional kiosk and seating area close-by for cream teas, snacks etc. A 10 minute walk will see you in the heart of West Looe for the oldest pub in Looe - The Jolly Sailor. A further 5 minute walk or boat taxi (tide permitting) will see you in the east side of Looe where there is a wide selection of pubs, restaurants, bistros to choose from.
