We have just returned from a wonderful week at Looe Island View. The house was perfect for our extended family of 4 generations. It has everything needed for a family holiday and was very well presented with amazing sea views. We loved it and didn't want to leave

Management response:

Sheila Thanks very much for your positive feedback, we are delighted that you and your Family had an enjoyable break and hope to welcome you back again to this lovely "forgotten corner" of Cornwall. Kind regards Philip
