• 'Lovely stay at the Boathouse. Ian made finding the place easy with detailed directions. We stayed in the Millpool Car Park, a very short distance away and was only £2.30 for 24hrs. The Boathouse was cosy, clean and comfortable. Perfect for our stay. We explored areas such as Bodmin Moor, Eden Project, Lanhydrock, Mevagissey. The highlight of the trip was the coastal walk from Looe to Polperro which only took us 2 hours. Plenty to do and the Boathouse was located in a great place for exploring, plus close to pubs and restaurants for evening dining.'

  • 'My husband and I have stayed 3 times now at The Boathouse and each time the high standards have always been the same. Ian is a wonderful host, always very responsive to requests, provides great information about things to do in the area and has always been very helpful. The Boathouse is always clean, well equipped and has everything you could wish for a pleasant stay right in the heart of Looe. Would highly recommend The Boathouse to anyone wanting a perfect getaway!!'

  • 'Made very welcome by Ian and was on hand to answer any questions I had. The boat house is finished to a very high spec, couldn’t fault anything with it and had a very comfortable stay. It's in very central location, it's a few minutes from the beach. It has many different restaurants/pubs on its doorstep and is an arms reach of the best Cornish pasties the Country has to offer. It’s perfect for a couple planning on sampling the local cakes, pasties and stunning walks. Thanks.'

  • 'It was a total dream and an ideal hub for our weekend activities! Extremely helpful host - I messaged Ian the night before wanting to book with special requests and not only was he prompt to reply but was willing and able to accommodate our needs with very little notice. Great location, comfy bed, excellent attention to detail, spotless, oh and delicious short bread! Definitely recommended. ...And don't be put off coming during the winter- the heating is excellent!'

A lovely selection of Books and DVD's should we have wanted to stay in and snuggle up. I have booked holiday cottages through a few different companies over the years, but can honestly say that Ian was more helpful and friendly than most. Ian definitely gave it that personal feeling that he actually cared rather than just taking our money. Excellent service and a really lovely cottage.'
