“Beautiful property in fantastic location”
Reviewed August 23, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Located at the bottom of a steep hill, the property has direct access to the beach from the decking at the rear. The views are simply stunning and by far the best feature of our holiday here. In terms of location, there is plenty to do within walking distance: Looe is a charming harbour village within a ten minute walk along the coastal path and Millendreath Beach is 5 minutes in the other direction. For those a little more adventurous, you can walk to Polperro (about 6 miles away) or the Monkey Sanctuary (up the very steps Looe Hill); however, both are within an easy drive if you don't fancy the hills! The property is perfect for a family holiday - there is a large balcony on the first floor which gets the sun for most of the day, a smaller decked area to the living room which has a gas barbecue and picnic bench and the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and well-equipped. To welcome us, there were cream scones, tea, coffee and milk in the kitchen which was a lovely touch after a long drive. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

“Fantastic views and lovely location near but not too close to Looe”
Reviewed April 2, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Great location next to Plaidy beach. The house had good facilities and well laid out. Lounge is a little small for more than 4 adults and heating is an issue out of season as there is no thermostat in the house. Other than those small issues I would highly recommend and intend to go back again.

“Fantastic house in a superb location”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Wow what a fantastic vacation house, I have never stayed so close to sea, what a joy to have the doors and windows open 24 hrs a day and hear the sea, I never wanted to leave the balconies.
The house is clean and bright, in good decorative order with 2 very large king size bedrooms, one twin and very comfortable beds. The house has everything you may need however you may struggle for 6 adults to sit comfortably in the lounge for extended periods, there is room but a few will be on the dining room chairs or the floor. To be honest with the great location I do not think many people,will face that problem. We used the parking space outside and did not try the garage, families with 2 cars may need to park a little further up the hill. The house location is quiet and within walking distance of the fine black rock cafe in one direction and Looe in the other direction. The area is quiet hilly though and walking may be a little tricky if you have mobility issues but worth pushing yourself if you can. Really hope to return one day

“lovely house in beautiful location”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

From the moment you walk into Shoreside you feel that calm you can only get right by the sea. The views are fantastic from all the bedrooms. The house is well stocked with the essentials and immaculate. All rooms are beautifully decorated. Had our 6 month old with us who has just started crawling so had to be cautious with the stairs but otherwise child friendly. Nice quiet location down the classic narrow roads of Cornwall! Note we couldn't fit our estate car in the garage so had to leave in the space in front which could be tricky if you have more than one car. Would highly recommend, thank you!

“As good as it looks!”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I spent ages looking at all sort of places to stay before we finally booked Shoreside. I was a little apprehensive as it almost looked to good to be true, fantastic reviews, right on the beach, short walk into Looe, parking... But I shouldn't have been. The house was fantastic!!! I had absolutely everything you could need. It was nice and clean, and there was enough room that even with 6 adults we didn't feel like we were getting in each others way!

The garage is quite low - I'm guessing why it says no 4x4s, however we parked our Freelander in the narrow space in front and it did fit.

I would recommend staying at Shoreside to anyone, and certainly we'll look to come back in the future. It was good value, costing what I'd expect and be prepared to pay (as we found a lot of comparable places were just massively over expensive).

Liked best: Right on the beach
Liked least: Plates did need to be re-washed (but there was a dishwasher), though I'm guessing due to the previous occupants, not the property cleaning staff.
