Thanks for you enquiry about the cottage.

I often get asked about parking, so have prepared the following:
 

Smuggler Cottage hasn't got dedicated parking.

You can get to within a dozen or so paces to unload and reload.

My best advice to use the Millpool car park over the river, plenty of room there.

It’s a nice walk! Less than 10 minutes

Park by phone app, renew your parking from the cottage!

The parking on the seafront has such small bays that you wouldn't want your car in there.

I got near the top of their waiting list and cancelled my interest, after the lines were redrawn.

The parking on the quay side is expensive and constantly patrolled.

I don’t think you can get a Weekly ticket there.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are staying for a week or more

You can save £10 on parking in the Millpool, by buying a Season Ticket from Cornwall Council – instead of using JustPark.· In the summer months it’s about £39 from JustPark and £28 from the Council· The shortest period for a Season Ticket, with the Council, is 1 month, but it’s still makes you the saving even if you only want it for a week.· Of course, a week in the cottage will involve you being in the car park from Saturday to Saturday – 8 days. A Cornwall Council Season Ticket makes a lot of sense.

The online purchase is a bit of a trawl. Here’s some guidance:

hover the cursor over Transport & Streets and select PARKING
next page
under Tickets & Permits ... select Season Tickets
next page
a long way down this page ... select Purchase Your Season Ticket Online
next page
select ... Apply For A New Permit
next page
select ... Season Ticket then tick the box now select ... Next
next page

select ... Looe Group (page will automatically refresh) ...

select ... 1Month (page will refresh again) ...then enter your Start Date

Now, start entering your details and your car’s registration number, make, model, colour and ... pay.

Millpool and a Season Ticket is the best option.

 

I’m happy to discuss further.
