Right in the heart of Looe sits Foam Cottage. Just one minute from the beach and harbour and about 5 seconds to the nearest shop and pub, this larger than average fisherman’s cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy everything in this friendly fishing village. Foam Cottage has been tastefully modernised including central heating, whilst retaining the character and features of a typical Cornish fisherman’s cottage. It makes a very comfortable family home for a holiday by the sea for up to 6 people.
Foam Cottage is larger than most traditional cottages in Looe. Built around 1860 (we think), it fronts onto Higher Market Street while the back door opens onto a sunny and secluded courtyard, decked with flowers. Actually this courtyard is also a street, but there are so few cars, you tend to forget that! The tall window spanning two floors fills the cottage with light. The rooms have extra height too so 6 footers won’t have to stoop for every doorway. Ground Floor: The ground floor is open plan with a lounge, dining area and kitchen. There is a dining table for up to 6, plus 3 armchairs, satellite TV, video & DVD players. The central heating is topped up with a gas fire in the lounge. First floor: Bedroom 1 front facing, with double bed, washbasin, shaver point, and space for a travel cot. Bedroom 2 rear facing, with bunks, washbasin, shaver point. Toilet with small handwash basin. Second Floor: Bedroom 3, front facing, 4’ double bed, washbasin, shaver point, built in cupboards.
Bedroom 4, rear facing, single bed, cupboards. Bathroom with corner bath, and shower over
Occupancy: Although there are four bedrooms, we limit the occupancy in the cottage to not more than 6 people, otherwise you’ll find it a bit of a squash in the living room and a queue for the bathroom. Linen: Duvets, pillows and all bed linen are provided, but you will need to bring towels, tea-towels etc. Fuel: Foam Cottage is centrally heated throughout and all gas and electricity costs are included in the price. The oven is gas. Pets: Sorry – we are not able to accept any pets in the cottage. No Smoking: In the interests of the majority of our guests we have made Foam Cottage a non-smoking home.
