About Peter Corbett
We have been coming to holiday in Cornwall ourselves for more years than we care to remember, initially in our younger years to surf on the North coast, although if surfing is your thing the South coast has plenty to offer with the rugged Whitsand Bay only a short drive along the coast. We visit all year round & the beauty of Looe is...its open 365 days a year!!
Peter Corbett purchased this Cottage in 2007

I found the accommodation and location perfect for
The cottage was immaculate and perfect to allow
me to enjoy e relaxing few days in Looe.
My grandparents lived in Looe and Sandpipers
was my cousins first home when she married.
Fabulous Easter break!
Had a wonderful time in Looe made even better by the bank holiday heatwave! The cottage was very comfortable and well resourced when we wanted to cook in or spend an afternoon watching a DVD from the vast library with many up to date choices. The beautiful main beach really is 30 seconds away and was busy but 5 minutes walk away rocky beach was quiet and peaceful and lent itself to a lovely evening BBQ. Lots of pubs and restaurants to be found in Looe and a great ambience in the evening in the town as people are out and about. We enjoyed fish and chips by the quayside watching an evening catch being unloaded.
Very nice cosy little cottage
Very clean and presentable, situated in the heart of Looe, with the beach, harbour, pubs and restaurants on the door step.

Peter is always responsive to questions and answers within a short time. He informed us in detail about the way to the house, the code for the key box and the parking possibilities before arrival.
The house is located in a narrow lane, about 2 minutes walk from the harbor and 3 minutes walk from the beach. To unpack the suitcase you can drive 2 streets nearby the house. There is a key box with code numbers. Paid parking (£ 13.50 and £ 5.50) is 8 and 15 minutes' walk away. With luck you can also book a reserved parking space nearby. In front of the house is a bench, you can set up a small wooden table and more chairs, as it is located on a small nice square. Although the house is located in the center, the alley is very quiet. Good restaurants and shops are nearby.
The house is very clean and comfortably furnished. On the ground floor is the very well equipped kitchen with large dining table, on the 1st floor the living room and a small bathroom, on the 2nd floor a bedroom with comfortable double bed and a bedroom with two single beds one above the other. TV in each floor.
There is no LAN or Wifi, the mobile reception in the house is moderate, outside ok. We felt very comfortable here and would have liked to stay longer. We thank Peter for allowing us to be his guests.
Hi Frederike & Gunter,
