About Bumblefish


Bumblefish is an attractive modern apartment close to the beach in Downderry and a ten minute drive from the fishing port of Looe.

A flight of external steps leads up to the property where there is a balcony which has views down the valley to the sea and from here patio doors lead in to the open plan lounge kitchen dining area. The lounge area has a comfortable modern corner sofa and coffee table along with a 32" Smart TV for own Netflix and has a built in DVD player. The kitchen is fully fitted and well equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, washer dryer, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and microwave. There is a gate leg table and four chairs and the balcony also has a table and four foldaway chairs and two relaxing chairs - a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the sea views.

The main bedroom is an attractive room with comfortable memory foam double bed and built in storage. The second bedroom is a bunk room perfect for children. There is a family bathroom with bath and electric shower over. The property has free wifi access and a parking space. Bumblefish offers the perfect base for a holiday in this beautiful part of South East Cornwall. 

Downderry is the centre of the broad bay which stretches from Rame Head in the East to Looe Island on the West. The quiet village is self contained and includes a Post office/grocery shop, a pub with fabulous views over the Bay, a good restaurant called the Blue Plate and a coffee shop in the square. The village is on a bus service to Plymouth, Liskeard and Looe. The beach at Downderry is fine grey sand with colourful shingle and stretches from about a mile east of Downderry to Seaton in the West and beyond. The beach has a lot of rocky outcrops which makes many rock pools at low tide. It is a lovely walk along the beach to Seaton which has a large expanse of beach, and a café, pub and restaurant. There is a beautiful walk from Seaton along the river to Hessenford where there is a good pub. There are many other scenic walks in the area, and the Eden project is within easy reach by car.

Out of season short breaks are available.

Customer reviews of Bumblefish

I had the most fabulous stay at Bumblefish with my daughter. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was immaculate, clean, warm and well equipped and extremely comfortable. It's a great base for many tourists attractions with Downderry beach being only a few minutes walk away. Would definitely recommend this apartment for a peaceful break.

Denise & NIcola - 30/10/2020

A fantastic apartment with everything you need. Great location to explore the area. Would recommend The Blue Plate and The Inn on the Shore. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. Very clean on arrival and felt safe in relation to covid19. Thanks.

Wendy and Kevin - 15/08/2020

A lovely stay. I would come here again in a heart beat.

Kev and Yvonne - 01/08/2020

Lovely holiday, perfect home from home. Bumblefish is clean, well equipped and situated. Sitting on the balcony getting the last of the sun with a G&T was as good as being abroad. Nice touch with the biscuits & milk. Would like to come again. I'm sure everyone who stays here will find the place quiet but within easy reach of everywhere. Enjoy.

Birtles and Boote, Stafford. - 07/09/2019

This is a fantastic little gem! Bumblefish is so clean and furnished with such attention to detail. We were very surprised to see the coffee,tea,biscuits and even realised there was milk in the fridge! It felt like home away from home! We would recommend the cafe and the 'Blue Plate' restaurant nearby! Very friendly staff and excellent food! Looe nearby (15 mins drive) is great for it's harbour and boat trips. We are sad to leave and would definitely love to come back!

Raj & family Milton Keynes, Bucks - 25/08/2019

Wonderful week at Bumblefish, lovely clean apartment with everything you could need. Great walks into Looe and east to Portwrinkle. Beautiful house & gardens at Cotehele ((NT property). Great food at Inn on the Shore and Smugglers at Seaton. We also went into Looe for a curry at Chennai Indian Fusion which was excellent. Real home from home & very relaxing. Highly recommend & would love to come back as there is so much to do!

Alicia & Dave, Newcastle under Lyme - 20/07/2019

Had two wonderful weeks in this clean comfortably well equipped apartment. We met the delightful owner, also the very helpful neighbour downstairs. Have visited the Monkey Sanctuary, Looe, Polperro, Fowey, Plymouth, Boscastle. Eaten locally at The Inn on the shore, also Smugglers Inn, Seaton. Both recommended. Hope the next visitors enjoy Bumblefish as much as we have.
