Holiday Rental in

Looe Cornwall - your perfect Vacation House

About our holiday cottage, history and facilities


Captains House  was built in 1880 as a superior town house by Captain Skentelbury as his main residence . Over the years, it later served as a cafe (called the Coffee Pot), a hairdresser’s salon and a for the last 20 years, a holiday house. It features high ceilings and regular staircase, making it unusual for a Cornish holiday home. A town house with a cottage feel.

Captains House has two  bedrooms, a master bedroom with a super king bed plus  and a twin bedded room on the second floor. There is a walk-in shower and WC on the first floor and a large luxury bath and WC on the second floor. Each bedroom is on its own level with an adjacent WC and bath or shower effectively making them en suite. We completely renovated the cottage in 2016, bringing it right up to date with heating and soundproofing.

The holiday house  looks out onto the busy Higher Market Street at the front whilst backing onto the peace and quiet of Middle Market Street at the rear. Vehicles can't easily access the web of lanes that make up the ancient fishing quarter. The rear basks in the sun pretty much all day. You can enjoy a coffee or a book, basking in the peace and quiet on our rear bench.

So here we have it, peace and quiet all just one minute from the sandy beach, one minute from the busy quayside and one minute from all the shops and restaurants that anyone could want. A perfect Holiday House!
