Osborne House is a magnificent 350 year old Cornish town house which, in the 1800s, was originally a the home of a wealthy merchant. During the last century is 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. The house is set in the heart of East Looe - ideally situated yards from the sandy beach, historic harbour, cafes and restaurants. This coastal location in South-East Cornwall is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a perfect retreat for anyone looking to escape from the urban hustle & bustle. The house sleeps up to 12 and is ideal for family holidays, birthday parties, group or reunions.
In 2014 Osborne House was given a five star ranking from Visit Britain and won a gold award for outstanding quality. Nearby parking for 2 cars is included.
Located among the quaint old streets of East Looe, Lantau Cottage and Osborne House are immaculately presented historic houses dating back between 350 and 400 years. Both properties are very well equipped for modern day living yet each is steeped in a rich history with many original features including beamed and gabled ceilings and offer discerning guests a flavour of days long gone. With quality furniture and soft furnishings throughout, guests will appreciate the attention to detail. The houses are normally let from Saturday to Saturday during the peak season but we offer long weekend breaks during other times. The houses are ideally situated just a few paces from East Looe’s sandy beach, historic harbour and many cafes, bars and restaurants. These are no-smoking properties and we regret that we can't take pets. Each house has nearby parking for 2 cars including 1 space in the beachside carkpark and one in the Millpool carkpark.
We have stayed in Looe several times but never stayed in the town - what a fantastic find Osborne House is. We are a family of 9 ranging from big kids (30 somethings) to even bigger kids (60 somethings). Not sure who had more fun playing table football or who was worse at table tennis but we had such a laugh playing both. The house is in such a perfect position and very well equipped. The front door takes a bit of getting used to when locking it but we soon got the hang of the jiggle.
Sally (the housekeeper) met us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful and we really appreciated the house being ready for us earlier than the check-in time.
Looe is a fantastic place with a gorgeous beach, lovely town and lots of places to eat - recommend The Sail Loft, Smugglers Cott & Kitchenside. We went on the glass bottomed boat and it was amazing to see the seals in the ocean. Had a magical holiday with an amazing family in a beautiful house. Another year where fantastic memories were made. Thank-you.

Stayed here in June with family. The house is one of the most well equipped I have experienced. Lovely rooms and a bonus having ensuite facilities.
The dining table was great and really lovely. The whole house is spacious and well presented. We especially enjoyed the table football and table tennis.
Location was perfect, just moments from the beach and surrounded by shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.
Osborne House was brilliant - every possible utensil you might need, from pasta strainers to children's crockery there was nothing that we wished we 'd had.
Lots of space and plenty of room for our daughter to perfect her walking.
Very clean and well maintained with a laundry refresh half way through our fortnight's stay.
I'd highly recommend staying there - very comfortable and of course, perfectly located.
We really enjoyed our stay in Osbourne house, both the property itself and the location, right in the middle of everything and a stones throw from the water, were perfect for our family group. The house itself was excellent, everything we needed and all the rooms a good size with plenty of bathrooms. All round very good
We had a great stay at Osborne House. It's huge, all the rooms are very spacious and the gorgeous kitchen is perfect for family meals. The location was fantastic, being only a 1 minute walk to the beach and all the shops and pubs in Looe. We were a bit worried about parking but it was straight forward and we parked our additional car easily and it wasn't too expensive. Would stay again.
An amazing property, full of character and very homely, perfect location to enjoy Looe, had a wonderful time. It was clean and highly maintained throughout and u would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Osborne House is fantastic for a family base. Right in the middle of East Looe, close to the beach and great places to eat. The accommodation standard is top class. There is plenty of room for a couple of families and it's a real home from home in terms of equipment. We will definitely be back!
Get a glimpse of Looe's past by visiting the Old Guild Hall Museum, or wander the narrow streets, and sample the delights of the town’s award winning restaurants. Explore the picturesque village of Polperro with its jumble of whitewashed cottages. Its tiny harbour was once a thriving centre for the area's smuggling of brandy and tobacco. Or take the coastal path to explore the secluded coves of Talland and Lanivet Bay.
Looe is a great base in which to explore Cornwall and discover over six thousand years of legend, tradition and heritage from the moors, mines and mansions of the region. There are beaches for everyone, including the spectacular 4 mile stretch of Whitsand Bay which is a 15 minute drive away.
Springtime sees a riot of colour from the bulb fields of the Tamar Valley while the summer brings in an abundance of marine life to this area of outstanding natural beauty. Autumn sees a further transformation through the area's ancient woodlands and their flora & fauna.
