Property Type Cottage
Location Nestled quietly down a farm lane just 4 miles from the fishing town of Looe and Polperro and within a 5 minute walk to the pretty village of Pelynt, this traditional stone built cottage lies within 13 acres of magnificent rural countryside. As well as your own gardens, you are invited to roam around the many acres of land surrounding the property, but more importantly the start of a fabulous dog friendly walk to Polperro starts directly from the cottage, where you can pass through acres of magnificent farmland, passing streams and for the avid photographer you are simply in heaven. This walk takes around an hour. For those who enjoy art, reading a book or just sitting out and about to enjoy some relaxation, the Cottage is the ideal cottage to do this. Many returning guests have said their batteries are completely recharged by the end of their stay, and when you arrive and see the location for yourself, you see why. The Eden Project is about 25 mins drive, city of Plymouth 40 mins drive, city of Truro around an hour drive. 25 mins drive to Bodmin Moor where you will learn about our mining heritage. Looe is a bustling fishing town with much to see and do including with its long sandy beach and working fishing harbour, boasting speed boat rides coastal cruise, glass bottom boat trip or fishing trips where you can keep your catch. There are lots of fantastic places to eat in Looe: cafes, bistros, fine restaurants and of course lots of pubs offering fine ales and good home cooked food. Polperro likewise, but a much smaller and quaint version, still with its working fishing harbour and small beach. Melin Cottage is ideally located as a short drive to the end of the lane will mean you are on the main road which leads you to many places of interest in either direction. Porfell Animal Park is about 10 mins drive away, a beautiful cove called Talland is about 5 mins drive and Lansallos Beach (another breathtaking bit of coastline) is about 10 mins drive away. Mill Cottage is ideal for families or couples wanting a tranquil and relaxing base, whilst remaining conveniently close to all the amenities and places of interest on offer. Pelynt itself has a lovely pub/restaurant - The Jubilee Inn, another restaurant - The Social Club, two good well stocked local shops, tea rooms and Post Office.
Nearest Pub/Restaurant Within a minute drive or 5 minute walk you will be in Pelynt where you will find the locally renowned Jubilee Inn and the Social Club welcoming non members to sign in for £1.00 and offers Sky Sports. Within a 5 minute drive you will be in the fishing town of Looe where there are many pubs and restaurants to choose from, and fishing village of Polperro where again there are well acclaimed restaurants and pubs.

  • As owners of a property in West Looe my husband and I would highly recommend Looe and Polperro Holidays to anyone looking for an agent to market and manage their property.  Over the years we have had excellent service covering all aspects of letting. i.e. bookings, cleaning, laundry and any problems have been dealt with quickly and efficiently with prompt payment to ourselves which leaves us feeling more than confident with our choice of agent.
    Gill & Malcolm.
    Wenmouth Cottage
  • I am very happy to recommend Looe & Polperro Holidays as I have used other holiday let companies in the past for my two holiday cottages in Polperro and have been let down badly by them, but Looe & Polperro Holidays have always got me more bookings than anyone else.
    Warren Cottage
  • They are a family run business with the personal service you wouldn't get with a much larger company - it's in their interest to get you the bookings, they don't have hundreds of properties on their books, so it's important to them to get you the bookings.
    Warren Cottage
  • They know the properties so well that they can chat to prospective clients about the individual properties and give the advice and service that people require in these tough times we are living in now. Holiday makers come back year after year to book them!
    Warren Cottage
  • One of the most important points about them is that they are not a 9am to 5pm busines, but on call in the evenings and weekends, bank holidays etc and also, as I am fully managed by them I know from experience that they get problems sorted quickly and effectively and as reasonably priced as possible.
    Ten Steps
  • They know lots of honest and good tradesmen in the local area, who will put themselves out to get things working again quickly with the least inconvenience to guests, which is very important to me. I would not hesitate in recommending Marie and Chris at Looe & Polperro Holidays. Thank you so much
    Ten Steps
  • We first had contact with Looe & Polperro Holidays when we rented a cottage from them and were really impressed by the efficiency of their service: almost an instant response to any phone or email enquiries. With their marketing, our new property has let for double the number of weeks we were expecting. The Full Management Service gives us complete confidence that any issues which arise during lets will be dealt with quickly and efficiently, and with a minimum of stress for us!!.
    Patrick & Mary. Bakehouse.
  • I have been dealing with the owners from Looe & Polperro Holidays company for just over 4 years, I live in London and purchased my holiday home for  a hassle free life!! That's excactly what it is, I get a great return and no problems whatsoever, the owners deal with everything for me. They have great local knowledge of the area and I could not ask for anymore than that.  It is a pleasure to do business with them and i will carry on with the same arrangement for as long as possible.
    Andrew. Abalone Apartment.
  • We own 3 cottages in the back streets of East Looe. We used 3 agencies before coming to Looe and Polperro  Holidays 3 years ago. These have been without doubt the most successful of the 3 letting agencies. Their success is due to the drive and enthusiasm of Maria & Chris Carnell and their knowledge of local conditions. They have increased booking levels and ensure our properties are well maintained.
