Located in an elevated position on Barbican Hill in Looe, The Old Barbican is a wonderful 1700’s detached period property and superb holiday home that exudes quality, charm and character. The property is a short distance from the bustling seaside port of Looe, one of Cornwall’s most popular seaside destinations. Set in a quieter area of town with ample parking, the house has been beautifully renovated by the owners, creating a fresh and welcoming environment either during the summer, when guests can relax in the wonderful cottage garden with patio and barbecue areas, or during the winter, when visitors can nestle in front of the open fire before relaxing with the family in the elegant dining room over a meal prepared in the stunning oak and granite kitchen. Upstairs, beautifully appointed bedrooms with TVs, two of which overlook the garden and have en-suite facilities, ensure a restful night. Furthermore, a delicious Cornish cream tea is provided on arrival to get your holiday off to a great start.
