Just got home from another lovely stay at the old museum.Thank you for making it even more accessible for us Paul. Hope to book soon for next year.
Well equipped, nicely furnished and decorated, clean and comfortable. Quiet as away from main car/pedestrian routes but only 90 steps from sandy beach as "measured" by our eldest son and very near to range of shops and eateries. Car parking space was a real plus point - we used our car as a "shed" to store boogie boards, etc. Straightforward booking, directions and instructions re key and parking. Of particular note brown leather sofa very comfy and TV, wifi and power shower very good. This was our first visit to Looe during main school summer holidays now that both our boys are restricted by these dates and we were surprised just how busy it was as indeed were lots of nearby places that we visited - esp Mevagissey and Bude Summerleaze beach (altho it did noticeably quiet down after Bank Holiday weekend) but I guess this proves Cornwall's popularity and possible rise in staycations? We found the locals to be very friendly and helpful. Cafe Fleur was great for our youngest son who is gluten intolerant as we were able to get him suitable takeaway lunchtime snacks including a pasty! On a general note we were impressed with the much improved roads to Cornwall from our home in West Sussex - we managed to do the journey in approx 3 hrs 45 mins (albeit that we did set off on each leg at 4.30 am to avoid the traffic). The kids would love to come again - they spent hours on the sandy beach which was raked daily (& was dog free) building sandcastles, playing ball etc. The water was very calm and extremely shallow shelving. They enjoyed swimming, snorkelling, crabbing and fishing and also had an exhilarating day of boogie boarding on a low wind day on the north coast (which took us approx one hour to drive to). As they grow up I can see the north coast having more appeal but for now, Looe ticked lots of boxes!
Stayed here for first time and it was perfect place to stay everything was so close and we ventured out every night discovering little places to eat / drink that we'd missed out on previous visits , would certainly stay again the rooms all tidy / clean and tastefully decorated
Just spent a week at The Old Museum apartment and had a lovely last minute stay, the apartment is lovely, has everything that you would need. It is comfortable and like home from home, the instructions to get keys and parking are all very straight forward and we would fully recommend booking this apartment.
Lovely property to stay at with everything we needed. So close to the front, a great place to stay whatever time of year. Would recommend and visit again
This was our second visit to The Old Museum and it never fails to impress. The location is ideal, the property is very well presented and not a detail missed. Will definitely return.
This apartment is ideal for a family visit, it is very cosy and comfortable and ideally situated. It is very well appointed, very clean and fresh, there are quality fixtures and fittings, when you need it the heating and Wifi are fab. Everything you need is there for a self catering/lots of takeaways !! hols. The decor is lovely, there are some lovely touches that make you feel the owner has really thought about the ambiance !!. There is no outside space but we knew that when we booked it, it was not a problem at all, there is obviously a massive bonus that the apartment is only a few steps away from the lovely beach. You can just nip out and sit on the beach/pier anytime you like, the kids loved this as they are just starting to spread their wings (13 and 9 yrs). Also you can pop out to sit with a glass of wine/hot chocolate which was nice. There are many cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops, there is something in Looe for everybody. Once settled in you will not need to drive anywhere. We enjoyed 'crabbing' , the Indian for a takeaway, The Catch for Fish and Chips. The two small Co-op shops catered for every whim. There are loads of pubs, most are dog friendly but all had a community feel, we felt very welcome. We walked from Looe to Polperro along the costal path, 5.7 miles with a stop at Talland Bay for a cream tea, a few hills along the way but not bad, nice route to run/jog for those with more energy to burn. All in all a great place to stay.
