About River View Retreat


River View Retreat is a lovely house a short walk from the centre of Looe town. Having undergone extensive works over the Winters of 2021 and 2022 the house now has an outside games room, a newly fitted kitchen and utility area (new for 2023) , a refurbished master en suite with free standing bath, an additional en suite to the second double room, refurbished shower room and cloak room (new for 2023) and an additional garage parking space (meaning two spaces).

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 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 refurbished for the 2022 season and a dressing room area, and the second double room also has an en suite shower room. High-quality bed linens and towels and gas central heating ensure a comfortable stay all year round.

The games room, 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 charcoal 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. The walk in to Looe town centre is just a few minutes across the bridge or the Looe Land Train picks up in the Millpool car park (just down the hill from the house) and rides to East Looe, West Looe and out to Hannafore.

There are several steps leading from the parking area to the door, please see the facilities tab for further info and accessibility.

Customer reviews of River View Retreat

The property is in a perfect location in Looe! Little walk down the road and you'll be down by the river. Lovely views from the living room. Plenty of space inside the property, and all the amenities you could require! Enjoyed using the games room too.

Luke - April 2024

The house is absolutely amazing!! Clean,modern,spacious and well equipped. The kids loved the little snug area which has lots of dvds and games to play. The balcony is so cosy and peaceful. Beds are comfortable, showers are lovely and the bath is ginormous! The location is fab too,only a short walk into Looe itself which is beautiful. We throughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return!
