About Smuggler Cottage

Smuggler Cottage is a pretty white washed Grade II listed holiday cottage located in the heart of the coastal town of Looe in Cornwall. The exposed timbers, ships beams and smuggler's tunnels provide plenty of character and charm, whilst the thoughtful renovations ensures this cosy cottage feels like a real home from home. Located in an enviable spot, just a stone’s throw from the beach and harbour, as well as walking distance to the shops, pubs and restaurants, you couldn’t wish for a better holiday location. Sleeping six guests in three bedrooms, including a quirky cabin room for the kids, it is the ideal cottage for a family holiday by the sea.

Looe is a lovely little town to while away a day or two. East Looe Beach is perfect for bucket and spade days by the sea. Once you are done with sandcastles, the gently shelving bay makes it a lovely spot for a swim, or grab your fishing nets and explore the rock pools. Head up to the quayside where the kids can go crabbing and you can watch the fishing boats bringing home their catch of the day. You can also hop on board a boat trip here where you can explore the picture-perfect coastline, go fishing or visit Looe Island.

There are plenty of shops in Looe to stock up on provisions and goodies. Alternatively, treat yourself to dinner at one of the award-winning restaurants overlooking the harbour or enjoy fish and chips on the beach as you watch the sun set over the sea. Keen walkers will be pleased to know that the South West Coastal Path passes though Looe and there are also plenty of riverside footpaths that pass through the pretty Cornish countryside.

If you want to head further afield, the unspoilt fishing village of Polperro is less than five miles along the coast, or pack a picnic and explore the rugged cliffs and beautiful beach at the National Trust’s Lantic Bay. The fascinating biomes at the Eden Project is a fun family day out whilst the Wildlife Futures Monkey Sanctuary is a must for wildlife lovers. Adventure seekers can get there fix of adrenaline filled activities at Adrenelin Quarry just fifteen minutes away, or head to one of the many nearby beaches where you can try your hand at sailing, surfing or paddle-boarding. There is so much to do in this magical corner of the country. Or if you prefer you can simply sit back in your deckchair with a good book and an ice cream as you enjoy watching the world go by.
