Area The fishing port of Looe is in two parts - East Looe and West Looe. East Looe with its quay area is connected to quieter West Looe by a 19th century bridge. East Looe offers narrow cobbled streets, twisting alleyways and plenty of tourist shops, whilst West Looe has a lovely outlook across the harbour. Bodmin Moor and the Tamar Valley are close by, as well as sandy beaches, National Trust properties, and further afield is Plymouth.
Region Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

The View from the Balcony over the Harbour and Town, could just spend the week sitting and watching that..
A lovely little town,full of surprises.. If relaxing is your thing this is the place, whether you like walks, reading, setting up an easel and painting ( as my wife loves to do) Looe is ideal. great place to dine out,a visit to THE SMUGGLERS COTTAGE is a must, especially for the sunday carvery. Great place for fresh fish ( the crab...wow). The holiday home ( RIVERCREST) was ideal place for my wife and myself to reside for 7 days, clean, comfortable , and the view over the bridge and harbour is wonderful. Loved Looe and WILL without a doubt holiday ( it was our honeymoon) again.

Brilliant from start to finish - a fantastic property with great facilities and stunning views.. Peaceful location but slight downside was steep stairs for access but not really a problem
Looking forward to returning
Positives/ great location, good bus links, great base and fantastic beach.. Plenty of good eateries and coastal walks. Negatives/ no on site parking and very steep steps down.
The cottage was exactly what we were looking for, and matched the advertised description..
It was ideally located and within walking distance of the shops and restuarants in Looe.. A fantastic couple of days relaxing and great views over Looe from the cottage.
Looe is a place we love to stay and Rivercreast has a great view over the .... Looe is a place we love to stay and Rivercreast has a great view over the harbour and out to sea , the steps going down to rivercrest are very steep and narrow , how ever we are only just into the season and a bit of a paint inside would we great the bathroom door needs tighting up and the tap , i know this is only a small thing BUT i would still come back a great place to stay thank you
Ideal location, perfectly clean and all every facility you could need or want.. Communication with contacts for arrival and departure was excellent.
River Crest was everything we wanted in a holiday cottage.. ..and more! It is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and the views are amazing!
The location is perfect with just a short (but steep) walk to the bridge and all the lovely things that Looe has to offer!
Would highly recommend and would love to visit again one day.
We really enjoyed our stay at Rivercrest, Looe is lovely and Rivercrest has a great location despite the steep hills (majority of properties will be on a steep hill).. The apartment is well decorated and modern. Hosts were very responsive. My only negative would be areas needing more attention for cleaning in the bedroom, few spiders amongst dust next to chimney breast. Also if the owner has time I think the bathroom needs attention, the extractor doesn't seem to absorb much water and felt very, very damp, but I'm assuming it's difficult when the cottage is booked back to back in this busy season.
The apartment was great.. The only issue was I had to go out and buy a hairdryer as not one at the property. The location was great with brilliant views and the parking space was a godsend.
It was a very clean and well equipped flat and the only moan was the lack of a .... It was a very clean and well equipped flat and the only moan was the lack of a lock on the bath room door , but apart from that I would book this again next year for sure
thanks again for a great holiday
Great little cottage with everything you need! Views are amazing and great location for looe town plus lots of things within an hour away.
No parking by the bungalow at all, from 1st May to 30th September this is a double yellow no parking zone. Access is, as described, down very steep shallow steps, and only accessible from the back road, nothing from the main riverside road and you need to walk up a relatively steep hill to get to North Road where the entrance is located. Lovely bungalow and very modern but no Wi-Fi which is vital when trying to research places to visit, opening times and costs etc. No bedroom curtains to shut out the early dawn. Brilliant views over the harbour and the bungalow is well equipped. Would we stay there again, possibly not as husband has chronic asthma and this made for difficulties when going out and about on foot.
The cottage itself was absolutely fantastic if anything it exceeded our expectations.. It's beautiful view of looe is worth the money alone! All facilities were modern and worked as they should.
The only negative was that 2 days before arrival I tried to call both numbers supplied for the caretakers to discuss the key box. I left 3 messages and I got nothing back. I contacted Sykes who emailed me the key safe combination but the lack of contact from the caretakers then caused a problem when we arrived and there were coded padlocks on the main gate that both Sykes and myself were unaware of. Eventually Sykes got hold of the owner who told them the code but also slipped in that "the caretakers should have told me this" which started the holiday on a slightly bitter note. Other than this it was fine.
A modern, clean, comfortable property with all of Looe to explore close by.
We were blown away with Rivercrest, it was stunning and the views were spectacular. It just made for a perfect holiday, we were so glad we chose to go with Sykes.
Rivercrest was an immaculately clean apartment. The location was excellent and the views stunning, I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again 100%. A big thank you to the caretakers for keeping the place to the standard it was.
Lovely accommodation in a perfect location with beautiful views. The beds were very comfortable and the main bedroom looked like a hotel room. It was very well equipped. We all had a wonderful holiday.
