Our third visit. We have stayed in a number of cottages in Looe and this is our favourite.
Good location, decent size, bit strange a double and a single in one room and two singles in the other, but perfectly livable for a week. Convenient for all amenities but just away enough for peace and quiet.
Our second visit to the Banjo Cottage - which says a lot about our views of the property.
Had a fantastic week think this may have been the best Looe property we've stayed in. The balcony was fantastic even sat out in the rain loved it so much!!!
The property stands in a great position for access to the Central area of Looe.A steep climb but of short distance. The approach Roads are very narrow albeit not a problem for confident drivers. The bath in the double room could be hazardous for the elderly or infirm but the shower in the twin room is fine so no issue really.All in all, a great location and excellent accommodation .
It was wonderful, thank you so much
