About River View Retreat


River View Retreat is a lovely house a short walk from the centre of Looe town. Extensive works took place over the Winter of 2021 and the house now includes an outside games room, additional garage parking space (meaning two spaces), refurbished master en suite with free standing bath, and an additional en suite to the second double room amongst other things.

River View Retreat is an upside-down house. On the first floor is the open plan kitchen diner, lounge, snug, shower room, utility and WC. The lounge diner includes a range style cooker, dishwasher, fridge freezer, coffee machine, and a large dining table that extends to seat 8. The lounge has beautiful sofas which comfortably seat 8 guests, a 43" 4KHD TV with sound bar and bi-fold doors which open out onto the balcony which is furnished with soft seating and overlooks the mature trees in front of the house. Off the lounge is a cosy snug with 32" Smart TV with DVD, perfect for when teens wish to escape to their own choice of TV. Lastly on the top floor is the modern shower room with an electric shower, WC and wash hand basin.

Downstairs are the four bedrooms all newly furnished with John Lewis furniture throughout. The two double rooms have king-size beds and both twins have adult size single beds. All rooms have ample clothes storage. The master bedroom has an en suite newly refurbished for 2022 and a dressing room area and the second double room also has a new en suite shower room. High-quality bed linens and towels and gas central heating ensure a comfortable stay all year round.

The games room, new for 2022 has its own wifi supply, a 43" 4KHD Smart TV, and a multi games table which will provide endless fun and entertainment for all the family to enjoy.

As well as the furnished balcony there are two additional outside seating areas. Close to the front door is a flat seating area with a table and 8 chairs and there is a  Weber bbq. Down a few stairs is a lovely double hammock, the perfect spot for a little siesta or to relax back and enjoy a good book.

The owners have given every thought to equipping the property for an enjoyable stay with extra touches like a picnic cooler, ice packs, camping chairs, and a parasol for beach days. With a garage parking space and additional space outside the garage and welcoming one well-behaved pet, guests will be lucky to find this little gem.

Customer reviews of River View Retreat

What a fantastic week we have had! Loved staying in the 'Upside Down House'. If you're craving a pasty definitely go to Sarah's you won't regret it! If you have a pup like we do, go over to Hannafore and let them explore the rock pools - Our Rudi loved it. After you can go to have the best cream tea/fresh crab sandwiches at The Island View Café! Thank you for having us.

The Richardson Family - 20/05/2022

We've had an amazing week in Looe! The house is the most well equipped we have ever stayed in, a lovely house in a brilliant location for Looe and any days out in Cornwall. Lots of lovely pubs in Looe, great pasties, ice-creams and gin! We will definitely be back!

The Harrison Family - 23/04/2022

Fantastic week - so lucky with the amazing weather. This house has everything and is near everything! We loved the beach at Hannafore. Visited Fowey via ferry at Bodinnick. Very picturesque Polruan on the opposite side of the river to Fowey. Polperro very quaint with a picture postcard harbour. One week is not long enough!

Williams Family - 24/07/2021

Very nice accommodation with very good layout. Looe and Polperro very pretty. South west coast path with walks in both directions, really enjoyed our stay, and cannot wait to come back..

Borowy Family - 17/07/2021

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the 'upside down' house. So well equipped. We challenge you to think of something unusual and then try to find it...??? You will!! if you want a meal beyond anything you have ever tasted go to The Old Sail Loft. You need to book! If you can't get in for dinner just go for lunch and do the set menu. A lovely day out is Polperro - the most quaint and quirky village! Eat pasties and enjoy gin!!

the Hudsons & The Connors - 03/07/2021

We have had a very enjoyable stay here in Looe. The house is spacious and very well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the sunny balcony.
