Fabulous Week!

17th August 2019 – Mr & Mrs Lovelace


We’ve had a fabulous week here at Captains Cottage.  Lovely and quiet location but ideal to explore nearby places with the kids.  Love the attention to detail in the cottage – from coffee pods to paintings.  The cottage has everything you need.  We have thoroughly enjoyed local food at The Inn on the Shore pub, visits to Looe and Polperro, Trethorne Leisure was a fun packed day.  We also recommend The Plough pub in Duloe.  Thank you for a lovely welcome pack and such a great place to stay.  Thank you also for the great communications and recommendations on where to visit / what to do.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful and peaceful location.  Although the weather was not the best, we still enjoyed exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall.  Thank for a wonderful stay.


Captains Cottage is an Absolute Gem!

Beautifully kept cottage in a stunning location to explore this part of Cornwall.  So much to see and do at nearby Looe, Seaton, Downderry and Polperro.  Huge thanks to Captains Cottage for a fantastic family holiday!


Beautiful Cottage

27th July 2019 – The Grays


Beautiful cottage - so much love and care put into it.  Lovely area.  Quiet with friendly neighbours.  Visited some peaceful villages. Looe and Fowey were particularly quaint.  Did one of the suggested walks.  It was steep and tough but great!  Lucky with the weather, even managed a tan.  Wonderful stay. Thank you!


Lovely Cottage in Peaceful Location

13th July 2019


Lovely cottage is such a peaceful location. We were very lucky with the weather and had some great beach days.  Lantic Bay and Whitsand Bay were well worth the walk and dramatic coastal scenery.  Thank you for a wonderful stay. 


Absolutely Spectacular Property

This property is absolutely spectacular. We stayed here and everything about it I would recommend this to everyone as a 5 star.

Absolutely fantastic break. Captains Cottage is in a really quiet secluded lane with only 4 or 5 properties beyond. Access vie two single track roads (with passing points) the property is located in a beautiful spot surrounded by farmland. The cottage was immaculate on arrival, very clean and bright throughout. The property was ample in size for the four of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs) and there was a lovely welcome pack when we arrived which we tucked into. This was really appreciated after a long drive from the Midlands. The property is well equipped with everything you could need and is very comfortable / cosy. There re some great places nearby, from Fowey, Polperro and Looe to the West to Seaton, and Cawsand/Kingsand in the East. Great value for money and the two weeks we stayed was sublime. We hope to return in the future.


Captain’s Cottage - Five Star Accommodation

31 January 2019 – Mrs S Tait


Just returned from a much needed winter break at The Captain’s Cottage near Looe. This is a repeat visit to Captain’s Cottage. We’ve really enjoyed our visits on previous occasions and love the area and fantastic beach walks. The cottage is immaculate, clean, light and modern with every mod con you need. Beds very comfortable. The wood burner is an added bonus. Lovely treats left by the owner were really appreciated. Dog friendly. We’re particular about where we stay and this ticks all the boxes. Great location for accessing other areas of Cornwall. The coastal town of Looe is a short drive away. Lovely beach and harbour - lots to do locally for couples and families. Would recommend the Cornish Cream Tea - delicious. We will be returning.

Amazing Cornish Retreat

18 October 2018 – The Vacationer


We were looking for a comfortable, characterful, dog friendly cottage for an early Autumn getaway in Cornwall, and happened upon this little gem. Very convenient for dog friendly beaches and walks. Excellent dog friendly pubs and great farm shop selling local produce, The cottage was clean, very comfortable and well equipped and a great base to explore Cornwall from.


The Perfect Cornish Retreat - For Humans and Dogs!

21 September 2018 – Road 817017


We'd booked to come and stay at Captains Cottage last year after seeing all the amazing reviews. A friend stayed prior to our holiday this year and had an amazing time, so we were very excited to go on our much anticipated holiday.

We've stayed in lots of holiday rentals in Cornwall but I have to say Captains Cottage was by far the most comfortable, well equipped, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It definitely felt five star. We took our two Cockapoos, Charlie and Max, and they absolutely loved the location of the property and the woodland walk from the doorstep, which we did most days, not to mention the trip to the local pub!

The cottage is situated down a quiet country lane and feels off the beaten track to begin with, but is actually very well located to Looe town, Whitsand Bay, Polperro, Kingsands and Cawsands, Talland and other great little places to explore. Especially when all you crave is peace and quiet after a busy week at work!

The cottage is light and airy with lots of modern touches. All too often we book dog friendly accommodation and its brown sofas, brown carpet and brown decor is dull, boring and lacking that homely feel. Captains is far from that. It feels like the perfect coastal retreat. Very near to some fabulous beaches, but just far enough away from the noise and throngs of holiday’s maker in town at this time of year.

The owner recommended lots or great places and dog friendly beaches to visit; we would never have gone to otherwise. We enjoyed hidden or less well-known beaches to ourselves, while everyone headed for the very busy local beach in town.

With so many places still to explore, we cannot wait to return. I think we may have found the perfect dog friendly and human friendly holiday cottage!
