Stunning property and location. Such a hot week for us, couldn't have been better. The welcome pack was one of the best we have had in many years of renting Rural Retreats properties.

Perfect fro a 4 day break before Christmas. Had 3 glorious days of sun. Highly recommend The Blue Plate Restaurant, lovely food from chef Simon. The Waves Bar, the friendliest bar you will find and shows all sport. Healeys Cider Farm is a great day out. Take the hay cart ride and guided tour - Rats in Cider. Thank you Lookout and Downderry.

We have had a wonderful week here - felt very relaxed and at home. Although the weather has not been amazing the changing light and the view are always gorgeous. We've spent a lot of time exploring here - one day excursion to St Michael's Mount and the Minack Theatre. Looe is lovely and the fish market is great for fresh fish. The earlier you go the better the choice. We had a lovely dinner at the Ancient Mariner - worth the deposit and also a great lunch at the Blue Place. Loved walking on the beach, the birds and the rock pools. Thank you.

Beautiful house with amazing view. We loved the bi-fold doors bringing the outside in. Wonderful welcome pack, best we have ever had. We enjoyed a meal at the Waver Bar and Restaurant. Days out at Polkerris beach, Readymoney Cove, the Eden Project, Porthcurno Cove and Polperro (beautiful fishing village). We had a yummy cream tea in The Plantation - definitely recommended.

For all the reasons I booked this property (3 ensuites, open plan and fantastic views) our week has worked out very well, The first time we have gone away with two new baby grandsons, both only three months, had they been a bit older I think it might have been a little tight for space (6 adults and 2 children). It is a lovely house.

A very beautiful house and a lovely food hamper. We would love to have a house here. A very lovely restaurant - Waves Bar. The beach was very nice, brilliant weather. The views on the balconies were amazing and the beds were comfy. We enjoyed our stay, hope to come back soon.

A wonderful New Year at Lookout. Brilliant fireworks in Looe which we watched from the balcony. We enjoyed a trip to the Barbican in Plymouth and a curry from 'Gurka' in Liskeard. We loved watching the storm roll in and kept warm by the fire. A beautiful house. Thank you.

No superlatives to add to the comments already made about this fantastic house Lookout. Thank you for the lovely fresh flowers, that was a nice touch. The November weather has been kind and we spent a lot of time on the balcony. Baby Erin has enjoyed her first holiday by the seaside.

We have had a most enjoyable stay at Lookout. A wide range of weather - two hot days eating lunch on the outdoor table and a couple of wet storms too. Whilst here we have enjoyed walking the coast path (nice cafe at Tulland Bay); the delights of the local ferries (Boddinich for lovely Fowey, Torpoint for Plymouth and onto great views of Tamar Bridge from Wolseley Road) and NT house at Anthony.

Polperro and Looe well worth a visit as well as several NT properties. Drive to Eden Project was rewarded with a great day. To eat: Blue Plate, Waves and Capley Arms all good. Weather and driveway the only minus points.

What an exceptionally lovely property - thank you for having thought of everything. The view is mesmerising and we are tearing ourselves away. Have had a fabulous stay. Loved paddle boarding and kayaking from Seaton Beach and delicious food at the Blue Plate. Hope to come back one day soon.

We enjoyed this holiday very much. The view is spectacular and we could watch the sea forever! A good pub to go to is Inn on the Shore which is 5 mins walk away from here. This is an amazing place to come and would love to come here again! So sad we are leaving.

Had an enjoyable holiday here. Now off to Sally Port Lighthouse for the rest of the week. Copely Arms very good Food, Mount Edgcumber well worth a visit - food very good as well. Waves Bar very friendly, beaches very good - too many to mention.
H & P - Suffolk
23 June 2017
Had a wonderful week in Cornwall despite the unpredictable weather! Lost Gardens of Helagan and The Eden Project are well worth a visit - both can be prepaid online at a discount. 'Cherry Tree's' in Padstow and 'Catch' in Looe are brilliant for some local food. Avoid Penzance and Newquay and stick to visiting the lovely beaches and port towns (especially Falmouth).

Sitting on the balcony in t-shirts taking in the view with Champagne on my birthday was unexpected in January! We've had a great break and the Lookout has been perfect for us. A well equipped, clean, lovely property.

A house that feels like a home. Beautifully furnished, with views that will be remembered for ever. The dinghy however was not adequate to get us to the island as there were no oars!

A fantastic location with a fabulous view! When you can't face another Cornish pasty or cream tea, we thoroughly recommend the Moonlight Tandoori in East Looe.
The B Family, Surrey
22 September 2016
Had a fabulous time. Loved the house, what a view! Jeff next door very friendly. Blue Plate Restaurant - excellent, bid dear but really good. Inn on the Beach OK but poor service. Waves bar and restaurant, Seaton, very good. Nice couple of miles walk to Copley Arms, very good. Walked to Looe, lovely place. Visited Polpero, again, great. All in all, a great time. Hope to come again!
The T family, Staffordshire
12 September 2016
Through the front door you enter the "Wow" factor. thoroughly enjoyed the open-plan living (new for us) and how many superlatives can you find for the ability to open our entire wall to the sea. Enjoyed our short stay very much.
The C family, Somerset
2 September 2016
Really peaceful escape! Much needed and very welcome. Very wet and rainy visit but in spite of the usual "liquid sunshine" characteristic of dear ole' England - our holiday visit was lovely. Can recommend:
To visit: Polperro, Port Isaac, Fowey & Padstow.
To eat: Blue Plate Restaurant, Downderry. Thank you.

There are so many excellent things to see and do in this beautiful part of the world (as well as all the things mentioned above, we can really recommend a visit to Saltram House and Gardens, but we could hardly tear ourselves away from this wonderful, thoughtfully designed house and its spectacular view. We'd love to come back!
D K, Germany

Wonderful, bright house - very well equipped - great to be able to walk to 'Waves' Restaurant. Excellent food and reasonable too! Also enjoyed 'The Blue Plate' (expensive, but good). Visited Looe (seafood lunch by quay) Eden Project well worth a visit, also Duchy of Cornwall farm shop/restaurant. Fowey interesting, old and picturesque.

10 June 2016
A smashing holiday - thank you. Super property, great location and enjoyed the quirky touches! Enjoyed a visit to the National Aquatic Centre in Plymouth and Buckland Abbey near Yelverton, both excellent. Recommend a hearty Sunday lunch carvery at The Inn on the Shore and fish and chips at Kelly's in Looe. All in all, an excellent vacation in an exceptional holiday home!

Love the house and the views of the sea. Great location, quiet and easy access to the beach at Seaton. Looe and Polperro both nice, pretty places to visit with plenty to do. Fantastic lunch of moules & frittes at the Blue Plate in Downderry ... recommend the Terry Harrison, Padstow Harbour. Jigsaws for the evening (all the pieces are there!). Parking a bit tricky for a big car but plenty of space on the road below. Great kitchen, very well equipped - especially the mitt, tongs, knives and chopping boards! We did loads of cooking at home, enjoying nice family meals around the big table with the beautiful backdrop of the sea views. Amazing holiday - one of the best. Thanks very much, we would definitely love to come back!

Polperro - a traditional seaside village - Roy's fudge shop was delicious.
Eden Project - has to be seen just amazing.
Looe - a bit touristy but worth a visit.
Blue Plate Restaurant - delicious food and lovely staff.

Thank you for sharing your house. We can't wait to come back.

What a fabulous relaxing holiday! We've totally chilled out and recharged our batteries. Had a great day out at Porthleven food festival, wonderful day in Padstow, walked along the cliff path from Downderry to Black Rock Beach, scared ourselves silly at Bodmin Jail, learned amazing facts at the monkey sanctuary and had a fabulous lunch in Looe. Finished off our trip with a great meal in the 'Waves Bar' in Seaton. Thank you owners and housekeeper - the house had everything we needed and excveptional views. Found ourselves falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of the sea - what more could we wish for.

A fantastic home, thank you.
Places worth a visit:
Port Eliot House (10 minutes away) open 2pm-5pm. The best house and gardens we have ever visited.
The Wave Restaurant, just down the road. Amazing views and fod.
Polperro (45 minutes away). A pretty seaside village by the sea.
Shipwreck Centre - Charlestown near St Austell. Well worth a visit, so much to see from hundreds of years of shipwreck treasures.
Padstow (1 hour away). A really pretty fishing village in S.W Cornwall.
Port Isaac (1 hour 15 minutes). The village where Doc Martin is filmed.
Lanhydrock House and gardens (40 minutes) - Amazing 50 plus rooms.

We don't want to leave. We have had a fantastic few days here. We explored the beaches in the village, went for a couple of runs and the country park, went to Looe and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. We also got up to Dartmoor on our only bad weather day. We ate out well - the Blue Plate in the village - excellent. Cornerhouse in Looe, Rugglestone Inn on Dartmoor - excellent and the Treby Arms on the way down in Devon - really good. We are off to explore Slapton Sands on the way back, via the Millbrook Inn which is always lovely.

Thank you so much - beautiful house in a fantastic location for exploring Cornwall! We had a lovely half term holiday with trips to Falmouth, Land's End, Bodmin and the Eden Project. We would definitely recommend visiting the Ede Project - it was the highlight of the trip for our two boys (although they also enjoyed playing in the rock pools at the beach here!). We never made it to the Blue Plate in the village as dined in on our nights here enjoying the terrace and the view, but would recommend Bosvenna Restaurant in Bodmin - had lunch there, lovely food and very child-friendly. Thanks again for a great holiday.

Thank you so much. We have all had a fantastic time in this wonderful space. I came with good friends as part of a birthday celebration and have simply had one of the best holidays in the country, and what a beautiful part of the country it is. The view is equal to any I have enjoyed abroad and we have been pleased with the wonderful weather for the time of year. We look forward to returning to the Lookout soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Lookout. A perfect place to relax and unwind, panoramic views eat views and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves. The home is equipped to a very high standard with great attention to detail. The walks on the beach are amazing even when the tide is in. R & L, Slough

It had been a most enjoyable week! We have enjoyed the lovely house, the kids arguing over the pink chair. Informing me its comfy, cosy and colourful. We are so grateful for all the wonderful places nearby like the beach and the restaurants. We went to Looe (15-20 minutes away), lots of lovely shops and good places to go crabbing. The Eden Project, its amazing. The Biomes are amazing, the rainforest one in particular is extremely hot so wear light clothes. They've recently opened the walk over, so you can see things from a birds eye view. Our week has been very enjoyable and we have enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much. MH, Chelmsford.

1 June 2013
Well this house speaks for itself really, so I won't go on about the views! So here's what we did:- The National Maritime Museum, Plymouth - Brilliant! Watch in the very last tank as there is a turtle who hides a lot, so if your patient he'll pop out. A fab, clean café and a good selection of good healthy hot and cold food.Talland Bay - Worth the drive, offers Kyack hire and a cheap beach car park at 2.50 per day. Saltram House (NT) - brilliant as ever, plus a well stocked restaurant. GB, Scotland
1 May 2013

We have had a fantastic holiday here enjoying the brilliant views. On a sunny day a trip to Tintagel Castle is well worth the climb - stunning! We enjoyed all the rooms of the Hanhydrock and a boat trip from Plymouth. RC, Coventry
1 April 2013
Wild weather, but great fun watching it in this very beautiful property! We have visited Looe, Polperro, Fowey, Polruan and Mevagissey. Enjoyed the National Marine Aquarium and the fabulous Eden Project. A lovely welcome at Inn on the Shore and the Blue Plate. The kids have loved the beach, the space to play and watching the surfers. Unfortunately the fishermen in our party didn't get a chance to dangle a line, but are desperate to return soon. LP, Leatherhead

It has been a wonderful week in a fabulous home and location. The ever changing view has been a constant delight. The weather has been kind and here are some of our highlights. Blue Plate - great dinner, lunch and deli. Wonderful service but limited opening times. Talland Bay - can get busy, but great coffee and pastries at the café. Sharrow Rocks - great surfing and some amazing deep rock pools.Polperro, Looe and Fowey are all lovely.One of the best equipped kitchens which made cooking a pleasure and a good barbecue. All in all a great week, sad to be going home. FW, High Wycombe

We are thrilled to be your first customers! Everything was absolutely fab - from the view to the wonderful house. We immediately felt at home and everything we needed was here ready for us. I want to wax lyrical about the views from the balcony, but really it speaks for itself. Thank you once again we'll certainly be back. ER, Northamptonshire
