Excellent stay at Chruch House. Just one comment, it could really do with a wheelie/dust bin outside.

A great location for us to enjoy the Looe Music Festival. Thank you for sorting the booking with the owners for us.

Church House was both comfortable/homely and full of wonderful historical detail. All equipment was well chosen & good quality The location was perfect for us; we travelled down by train and found Upper Chapel St both convenient for travel, coastline and shopping and surprisingly quiet & peaceful.

I would just like to add how very helpful the housekeeper Dilly Crago is.On the first night we had no hot water ,but we rang him and he came straight down and fixed it for us it was just a question of water pressure but we didnt like to touch it.He also came back the next day and changed the twin beds into a queen size bed which was lovely.All in all he was a really nice and helpful man who also gave us lots of information about in and around looe. Very efficient in all that he did for us.
