Proper Job

Widegates, Nr Looe, Cornwall, England

Fabulous modern cabin with sea views, a private sunset hammock spot and tree swing near Looe.

The Quirky Tour

Fully insulated and heated, these well designed cabins offer a comfortable stay year round (I can vouch for being warm in winter!). All our needs were catered for and ordering the tasty hampers adds to that.

The local pub - The Copley Arms - was a great night out with live music and tasty food and local ales.

Outside the property you can relax on your large terrace and take in the sea views from the comfort of your double hammock or alternatively take to the tree swing or your own personal sunset hammock spot! Of an evening put on the DAB radio with Bluetooth and enjoy socialising around the fire pit or fire up the BBQ and enjoy some tasty food. Children will love the freedom of the space, so don't forget to bring a football or kite and have some good old fashioned family fun.

Do I need to book restaurants and activities?

We strongly recommend that you book as far ahead as possible to avoid any disappointment – restaurants get very booked up quickly, especially in the summer months and peak season.

We’re celebrating a special occasion, can we have the cabin decorated?

We’d be absolutely delighted to add some special touches to your cabin for your arrival or help to make your special occasion perfect – please get in touch to discuss options.

How do I order one of your local hampers?

These can be added to your booking during the booking process online, and your hamper will be in your cabin ready for you when you arrive.

Can I walk to the beach from the site?

Whilst it is possible to walk to the beach from the site, it is 3.7 miles and does involve using the road for some of the route, which has no footpath and can be steep in places so isn’t for the faint hearted!
