Jessamine Cottage

Jessamine Cottage is a fully restored former fisherman's cottage located in the heart of West Looe. The cottage dates back some 300 years and is arranged over 3 floors and is perfect for both smaller and larger families alike as well as couples.

Whilst renovation work was carried out in 2017, the house has retained much of its original character and, in fact, regained some charm as previously hidden fireplaces have been rediscovered.

This was our second stay in this fabulous cottage in Looe. The property is spotlessly clean, is finished to a high standard and has everything you could possibly need for a lovely family holiday by the sea in Cornwall. Like last year the New Year celebrations in Looe were superb. We enjoyed a meal in the Smugglers Cott sandwiched between two impressive sets of fireworks down by the beach. The location of this property is excellent with many restaurants and cafes a short walk away and all the attractions of Cornwall within easy reach by car. The train to Plymouth is also a worthwhile trip. We would strongly recommend you rent this property.

Jessamine was a great choice for somewhere to stay while visiting family who live locally. The house is very welcoming, in great condition and, short of food, has everything needed for a stay. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful house in the best location.

Our only criticism is the damp patch at the dining end of the kitchen. We understand the house is very old and this will effect the condition. This however didn’t put us off in the slightest.

Also a full length mirror in one of the bedrooms would have been nice.

A beautifully restored house set in a lovely location with views of the harbour from the bedrooms. Very comfortable for our family of six and we enjoyed cooking and eating together in the wonderful kitchen dining area.

We loved Looe which has plenty to do for all ages. Lots of great cafes, restaurants and pubs.


Charming home in a beautiful location. We could not have asked for more from our holiday. The owner's attention to detail with appliances and decoration is fantastic. The kitchen is stunning with an Arga oven. instructions and advice provided by owner and homeaway were very helpful and very clear. If i could give more stars, i would! Thank you for making our stay so special!
