The Old Vicarage - Kitchen


Spacious yet cosy, historic yet stylish, The Old Vicarage is a characterful 400 year old, Grade II listed Cornish cottage situated in the heart of ancient Looe’s quaint town centre and a minute’s stroll to the beach.

This self-catering accommodation is ideally and conveniently located to explore Looe’s pier, harbour, fishing quay, sandy beaches, museum, restaurants, pubs and amenities. The South West Coast Path's stunning scenery is within easy reach, as well as the many other Cornish attractions that lie outside Looe (including Talland Bay, Polperro’s picturesque fishing port, The Woolly Monkey Sanctuary and the internationally renowned Eden Project). For our active guests diving, sailing, fishing, walking and more are at your fingertips.

Recently redecorated and refurbished to a high standard, The Old Vicarage (which is arranged over three floors) can accommodate up to 8 adults (with extra sleeping capacity for a child and a baby). It includes a wood burning stove (ideal for creating a cosy cottage atmosphere, especially during winter evenings), a private courtyard garden (with BBQ) and a large Jacuzzi bath (perfect after a day spent enjoying any one of Looe’s excellent outdoor activities). 

History of the Cottage

Built in the 1600s, The Old Vicarage is a Grade II listed building with the English Heritage.  The cottage retains many of its original, characterful features including a flagstone hallway and beams.

As its name suggests, the cottage started its life as a vicarage for the clergy.  In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the late Victorian engineer Joseph Thomas lived in The Old Vicarage while he created the road to Hannafore, the Banjo Pier and the railway line to Liskeard.
