Compass Cottage is a lovely Grade II listed traditional early 19th century ex Fisherman's cottage in the historic conservation area of West Looe, with designated parking nearby and just a few minutes' walk from the oldest pub in Cornwall, two convenience stores and the Quay. The cottage has been beautifully and sympathetically upgraded to a very high standard including modern "open plan" lounge with separate dining area and new bathroom. It offers all modern comforts whilst retaining its original charm with beamed ceilings and oak doors. Located in the sought after and quieter area of West Looe, it is at the same time very convenient for all the pubs, shops beach and amenities.
Compass Cottage is a well-designed "home from home" boasting central heating, relaxing "open plan" lounge with leather suite (May 2013), contemporary wall-mounted electric fire and separate dining area, galley style kitchen, double bedroom with fitted wardrobe, bunk bedroom and modern upstairs family bathroom with mixer shower over the bath, all newly installed May 2013. Outside there is a patio accessed via communal steps affording views down over to East Looe with distant sea views. There is private parking for one car by way of a pre-paid permit to a car park less than a minute walk away.
West Looe Quay is approximately 5 minutes walk, where you can try crabbing or watch the fishermen sort their catch. A boat taxi (tide permitting) can take you across to East Looe Quay, where you can book a coastal cruise, lie on the long sandy beach, take a glass bottom boat trip, fishing trip or for those feeling more adventurous, there's always a speed boat ride! Alternatively, you can walk the level harbourside 5 minute walk round to the east side. The property may be unsuitable for people with mobility restrictions. Phone the office for more details.

This is a lovely traditional cottage, modernised to today’s standards, yet keeping its character. We found it to be very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The little garden was lovely for sitting out, with magnificent views all around. The cottage lies about halfway up a hilly road, close to a great pub, 2 food shops, the harbour and the Southwest Coastal Pathway.Rosalind Mitackis - 30th May 2019

This was our first holiday as a family of 3 with our 6 month old son & we have honestly made some brilliant memories that will last us a lifetime! The cottage was lovely, clean & comfortable with so much more space than we anticipated! Perfect location & everyone we spoke to was helpful & friendly. We highly recommend the local shop at the bottom of the hill for lovely local produce!

Had a lovely time in Looe. We all loved the little ferryboat across the river, nice beach in East Looe, rock pools in West Looe. Anthony House was worth a visit in the sunshine. Eden Project was amazing. Polperro was very sweet and we really enjoyed dinner at Sam's in Fowey. Thank youMiss Sherbird - 1st August 2015
