“Superb Holiday in Above Town”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in Above Town for a week and loved it. The accommodation was excellent and the grounds in which it was set were lovely and peaceful but with plenty of activities to keep us busy. We loved the outdoor swimming pool and the badminton area. The location of the cottages were ideal for us, very short drive in to Looe and other nearby places whilst being out of the way of the noise of busy towns.
We received excellent customer service from the owners who were always happy to offer their great advice which saw us visit some really lovely places.
Cant fault anything about the place or the staff, would definitely recommend and would love to return (our dogs also loved it, it was a very dog friendly place)

“Wonderful hamlet.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a wonderful, peaceful place. The cottages are tastefully furnished and nicely situated. We had great fun at the pool and my kids loved the explorative landscaping.
Jayne was friendly, helpful and accommodating as we asked to stay on an extra three days. I left something behind and she was very quick to send it on to me.
We would definitely stay here again.

“Fantastic accommodation - lovely owners”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

This was arranged for a friends 30th - all girls went together, before arriving Jane was very helpful advising where and what to do.

When we arrived we were all blown away by "Above town" cottage - it was absolutely beautiful and very spacious. Decorated to a high standard with a home from home feel.

Jane had kindly put balloons up for us as it was a 30th birthday.

I recommend this Cottage to anyone - we did pass comment that it would be stunning at Christmas/New year if large families/friends all hired cottages. It has the most secluded, tranquil feel to it, yet Looe village is literally 5-10 mins drive away. Definitely worth a trip.

“Very impressed A+”

person found this review helpful

Very impressed with the Above Town cottage, inside was very very clean and modern and felt very homely. It contained everything you could possibly need (e.g. fridge/microwave/oven/towels etc etc). Jayne and Mark were very helpful and told us of a few decent places to go to (Seaton Beach, Polkerris Beach, Fowey & Looe Town), all of which were around 20 minutes drive away and well worth the trip. One of the main reasons we chose this location was because it was dog friendly, and my own dog hit it off with Jayne's dog - Marley. Additionally, the beds were very comfortable! Would definitely recommend.

“Lovely week in beautiful Cornwall”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in Queens Park Cottage which I couldn't find on trip advisor but it is very similar to this one. The cottages have been done up to a very high standard with all the amenities you could wish for. The owners are delightful and the gardens and pool are fabulous. We were lucky enough to have arrived during a heatwave and made good use the pool which was never crowded. Even better, they are dog friendly - our somewhat over excitable yorkie made lots of friends. Marley, the owners' dog is just beautiful and so tolerant! The surrounding area is just stunning and we did a lot of touring. You can walk into Looe in around twenty minutes. I would definitely return - even my twenty year old who no longer wants to join family holidays would love it! If I have to mention a downside (which did not bother me but did my husband who needs regular internet access as he runs his own business) there is a wifi "hotspot" outside rather than in the cottages. The owners are however tell us they are planning to remedy this in the future. Highly recommended.
