Osborne House is a magnificent 350 year old Cornish town house which, in the 1800s, was originally the home of a wealthy merchant. During the last century it was a sweet shop, and more recently a thriving restaurant.

Today it is a fully restored family home, retaining many original features including wooden beams - one of which is reputed to have come from the defeated Spanish Armada.

East Looe is an excellent position to explore all of Cornwall...

The Eden Project is only 45 minutes away. Alternatively, for the ultimate relaxed holiday experience, come by train (transport links are excellent) and enjoy the wonderful coastal walks and beaches and indulge yourself in the many local cafes, restaurants, and pubs. In the 18th century, some of these establishments would have been the haunt of smugglers, who brought rum, brandy and tea ashore along this rocky coastline.

The historic seaside town of Looe keeps visitors entertained all year round whilst still retaining a working fishing port. Stand on the quayside in the evening and watch the boats return before dining on fresh fish in a local restaurant. The town prides itself on its fresh fish, and be it award-winning fish and chips near the river or gourmet menus in smart restaurants overlooking the harbour, you won't be disappointed. There is also a fresh fishmongers on the harbourside for those wishing to cook at home.

To work all that food off, Looe is a great place for walking. The South West Coast Path passes through the town, plus there are countless walks in the beautiful countryside, or along the two rivers that flow inland.

Looe's main beach offers soft golden sand and slopes gently to provide safe swimming and a regular sun trap. It is easily accessible from the town providing all you need for a relaxing day including cafes and shops. In addition, there's plentiful crabbing along the quayside, fishing trips as well as boat trips aplenty. Take a trip out to Looe Island, once a holy pilgrimage site, nowadays it's a sanctuary for rare plants and wildlife. It’s here you’ll find a grey seal population sunbathing on the rocks and bobbing up and down in the water. Trips out to the island start around Easter time depending on tides and weather.

A visit to Looe Museum reveals a collection of smuggling memorabilia, the town’s railway heritage and some wonderful model boats housed in the town's old Guildhall and Gaol. There's even a ghost who lurks in the dark recesses downstairs! Across on the West Looe side of the river, The Old Sardine Factory has recently opened with a heritage centre that compliments the museum, focusing on the town's maritime and fishing history.

Looe Marine Conservation Group runs regular rockpool rambles for kids of all ages. Their website has loads of information, including a what's on listing for wildlife events and encourages visitors to discover, explore and learn about rock-pooling, crabbing, snorkeling, bird watching, and fishing.

Apes and monkeys rescued from all over the world are looked after by dedicated staff at The Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary four miles from Looe. A fascinating and informative refuge for troubled primates. Also nearby is the Porfell Wildlife Park with a broader range of animals.

Superb property, close to the beach and all the towns amenities. As a family we have stayed here every year for the past 5 years and hopefully next year also.

Osborne House

Osborne House is a grade 2 listed property with charm and did not disappoint. Location for beach and town is superb, with secure parking in the Beach carpark (2 minutes away). Ideal for families with Children - we were a party of 7 adults and 4 children (2yrs - 6yrs). All household amenities were good, however I would suggest a tumble dryer would be a must to compliment the washing machine. The clothes dryer just did not work for drying. Otherwise would highly recommend.

Osborne House

There were twelve of us and still it didn't feel like we were on top of each other: laid over three floors with four bathrooms. there was plenty of space for everyone. We loved the large dining room and kitchen and had some fab times preparing and eating meals all sat around the large farmhouse table. Beds were very comfortable and the whole house very tastefully furnished.

We been to Looe a couple of times and the town and its wonderful beach never disappoint. Lots to do for the whole family and some lovely coastal walks on the doorstep.

We had a thoroughly

enjoyable holiday and can't wait to return.

Osborne House

Super house ideal for multi generation family holidays. Very nicely decorated with a nautical theme throughout, the house is spacious, comfortably sleeps 12 and benefits from four toilets/bathrooms. Location couldn't have been better with the beach and harbour just a stone's throw away. A big thanks to James and team for the smooth booking process and clear joining instructions, and we'd love to return.
