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.
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.

Birds Nest is located in the heart of East Looe and very close to the beach. It's a 10 - 15 minute walk to the train station which connects Looe with the main London to Penzance line at Liskeard. If travelling by car Looe is less than 30 minutes from Plymouth and the Cornish border. For overseas visitors Plymouth has a ferry terminal and the nearest airports are at Exeter, Newquay, Bristol and London. Guests opting to drive should be able to park temporarily at the top of High Chapel Street adjacent to the Church in order to unload and load (around 10- 15 metres away from the cottage). The cottage now has the benefit of an allocated parking space in the Millpool carpark which is a 7- 8 minute walk away (effective for bookings made after 1 March 2018).
