We have amazing views overlooking the valley and river, but these are only achieved by the cottage being in an elevated setting.
Unfortunately this means it is not suitable for those with limited mobility.
Train: The Looe Valley Line from Paddington is literally just below the house, you can see the trains come and go from the bedroom window. It is a scenic 25 minute journey from Liskeard.
The most direct route to the cottage is opposite Looe station, behind The Globe Inn. Take the first right into Shutta Road and follow the road up until it levels out to go back down into town. North View is the row of houses on the left and Lowena Cottage is No 3.
Taxi: If you don't fancy the initial walk or drive uphill with your luggage, you can pre-book a taxi. Looe Taxis will meet you from Looe or Liskeard train station or one of the car parks in Looe. The taxi office is located in the grocers, so you could always order some shopping to come up with you! Tel: 01503 262405/264193 - Looe Taxis website
Driving: You may stop briefly outside to unload. To exit go straight down Shutta Road towards town (this is a narrow road esp at the end), turn right at the bottom and park in one of the nearby carparks. Alternatively drive just to the top of North View and take a sharp right into Elm Tree, then keep left into Pendrim Road. Carry on past the large new houses, turn left at the top into Barbican Hill and then onto Barbican Road. You’ll come to the corner of St Martins Lane where the flower-boats are, turn left and come back down into Looe to park.
Parking: daily parking is available in East Looe, weekly parking in the large Millpool car park over the bridge in West Looe. You can also park for free in a residential area - drive as above along Barbican until you come to Bodrigan Road. Look for the little footpath situated in between Restormel Road and Pendennis Road, at the side of some garages, signposted “Shutta and BR Station”. It takes about 5 mins to walk down (take the left turn when you get to a fork) and you’ll come out at the top of North View.
