Looe, Cornwall, England
Located among the quaint old streets of East Looe, Osborne House is an immaculately presented historic house dating back 350 years. It is very well equipped for modern day living yet steeped in a rich history with many original features offer discerning guests a flavour of days long gone. With quality furniture and soft furnishings throughout, guests will appreciate the attention to detail. The house is normally let from Saturday to Saturday during the peak season but we offer long weekend breaks during other times. The house is ideally situated just a few paces from East Looe’s sandy beach, historic harbour and many cafes, bars and restaurants. It is no-smoking property and we regret that we can't take pets. The house has nearby parking for 2 cars including 1 space in the beachside carkpark and one in the Millpool carkpark.

Reviewed 27 December 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We were a group of 10 old school friends having a small reunion and simply loved this house and its location in East Looe's old town. The kitchen was very well equipped and we spend most of our time sat around the wonderful dining table.....and playing table football (such fun). The bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms a plenty with quality bed linen and towels.

In the town we enjoyed the many local cafes, restaurants and pubs. Daisy's cafe was a favourite and Sunday lunch in the Smugglers Cott was fabulous (traditional roast carvery style with very generous portions). We also spent fund evenings in The Salutation pub and Ship Inn - to name a couple. For a small town there seemed to be plenty of live music too.

A special thank you to James who ensured a smooth booking experience and to Dilly for meeting and greeting us on arrival.

No hesitation in recommending Osborne House - and we've already booked for next year.

The location is amazing - the beach is at the end of the street! You're right in the heart of Looe's old town, very quiet yet close to everything. This is a great family-friendly house and very well equipped. We loved the huge kitchen and dining area - great for getting together, meals and drinking. The football table was a hit too with both the youngsters and oldies. Highly recommend to anyone and we'll definitely visit again!

About the neighbourhood
The seaside town of Looe keeps visitors entertained all year round whilst still retaining a working fishing port. Stand on the quayside in the evening and watch the boats return before dining on fresh fish in a local restaurant. The town prides itself on its fresh fish, and be it award winning fish and chips near the river or gourmet menus in smart restaurants overlooking the harbour, you know you won't be disappointed. To work all that food off, Looe is a great place for walking. The South West Coast Path passes through the town, plus there are countless walks in the beautiful countryside, or along the two rivers that flow inland. For children there's a safe sandy beach with rock pools beside and crabbing in the harbour.
Getting around
Looe is a great base for exploring other parts of Cornwall which can be done either by bus, train or car. There are also regular boat trips (weather permitting) from the harbour that will take you to neighbouring Polperro.
