Local Area

The town of Looe has charming narrow streets leading down to a picturesque harbour, and is split into East and West Looe by the river that runs through it, and on down to the beach.  Looe's sandy beach has a little cafe where you can linger over a cup of coffee while people-watching or admiring the view. 

There are a number of lovely cafes, as well as restaurants and pubs to choose from, making this a great destination for the foodies among you.  You will have the opportunity to buy freshly-caught fish from the market on the quay, or if you fancy it, go out on a fishing trip to have a go at catching your own!

If you don't fancy fishing, a good alternative boat trip is to Looe Island, where you can find some lovely examples of rare plants, and spot plenty of wildlife, including grey seals and seabirds.  Looe Marine Conservation Group can give you more information about the island and its wildlife.

Looe is said to be a wonderful place to enjoy the New Year festivities, a time when many happy party-goers in fancy dress descend upon the town to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a magnificent display of fireworks.

This was our first holiday as a family of 3 with our 6 month old son & we have honestly made some brilliant memories that will last us a lifetime! The cottage was lovely, clean & comfortable with so much more space than we anticipated! Perfect location & everyone we spoke to was helpful & friendly. We highly recommend the local shop at the bottom of the hill for lovely local produce!

Had a lovely time in Looe. We all loved the little ferryboat across the river, nice beach in East Looe, rock pools in West Looe. Anthony House was worth a visit in the sunshine. Eden Project was amazing. Polperro was very sweet and we really enjoyed dinner at Sam's in Fowey. Thank youMiss Sherbird - 1st August 2015
