Banjo Cottage is a charming and delightfully comfortable 18th century listed stone barn/work shop conversion, set in a convenient position within the heart of bustling East Looe, with its vibrant shops, fine restaurants and wonderful sandy beach only a few minutes’ walk away. The owners of this beautifully refurbished 3-storey cottage have created a welcoming relaxing retreat, with modern en-suites to each bedroom, making it a perfect haven for your Cornish holiday. For the walkers amongst you, the South West Coastal Path runs directly past the upper entrance to the cottage, which offers stunning coastal views. For those who wish to venture further afield, boat trips to nearby Looe Island (also known as St George's Island, and historically St Michael's Island) - a haven for grey seals and herring gulls - or to neighbouring quaint harbour towns and villages can readily be arranged from Looe harbourside. Sea fishing trips can also be taken and freshly caught fish can be purchased on the quay. The Eden Project is approximately 40 minutes’ drive away, and numerous other Cornish wonders can easily be discovered by car or train, there is something to suit everyone. Alternatively - you could just enjoy relaxing at this captivating cottage, taking advantage of the south facing 'sun trap' balcony with fabulous views of the famed Banjo Pier and out to sea.

A truly lovely cottage and well presented. A great location for both the beach and eating out. Very clean and ticks every box for a relaxing and peaceful stay. Although we had a mixed bag of weather we had a great holiday always knowing that we had a comfortable and cosy place to return to at the end of the day. In my opinion great value for money and definitely recommended.
The cottage was in very nice clean condition. Only two very small points - the bedding in the double room smelled strongly of something - not sure what it was. And (b) dustbin was not emptied from previous guests on bin collection day so we had to keep our rubbish in the cottage. But we loved Banjo Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
This is a fantastic cottage in a great location, we loved it and will definitely book again and recommend when we come back to Looe
3rd time we have stayed at Banjo. We will definitely stay again next year if it's available on dates required. Absolutely love the place, feels so homely & cosy. Didn't want to leave. Looking forward to our next time on there.
Really enjoyed the property and area.
It was a lovely holiday and the cottage was brilliant and in a fantastic location we will be back
Apart from the bed, the rest was fantastic. Thank you
Really good break in central location. Looking forward to our next 'Toad Hall' holiday in September.
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
