A town house in the centre of the medieval heart of Looe. A minute to the beach, harbour and town with many shops restaurants and markets to hand. We have just completed a major overhaul including sound insulation providing a haven in the bustle.
A double bedroom, a twin bedded bedroom.
Foam cottage was built in 1880 and over the years has acted as a home, a coffee shop, a hairdressers salon and a holiday cottage. We have returned to a home and now are letting it on AirB&B for some weeks during the year. Foam Cottage has a good feel about it. Hard to describe but one feels it as you enter. The high ceilings and regular staircase are unusual for a Cornish cottage. It is more like a town house but also has the cottage feel. We use the cottage on a regular basis, it is our second home. We have a fishing boat moored in the harbour, Silver Sally. Foam Cottage is our way of getting on the boat on a regular basis. We have completely renovated the cottage bringing it right up to date with heating and soundproofing. Also converting two bedrooms into a shower room and a bathroom, a four bed property into a two bed property with much better facilities. A walk in shower and a large luxury bath allows everyone a creature comfort. It is a sunny house that looks out into the busy Higher Market Street at the front whilst backing onto the peace and quiet of Middle Market Street at the rear. The rear basks in the sun pretty much all day and there are areas where you can sit and enjoy a coffee. So a choice of people watching or sunbathing all within twenty paces!
The whole house is available to our guests part from the external basement.

I have been self employed since I was 21, and am 60 now. I married in 1975 and Kathy and we have run construction and accommodation business together since then, sometimes mounting art and sculpture exhibitions.
I can't live without a boat, access to theatre, the odd very fine bottle of wine , my family and good friends.
The family motto is "Never give up!"
