The West Country region
With it's warm, temperate climate, sandy beaches, sheltered coves, picturesque fishing villages and historic harbours, it is no wonder that Cornwall is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK.
Cornwall is a fantastic place to holiday because there are SO many things to do, come rain or shine. With Cornwall being less than 80 miles from end to end, all attractions are reachable for a day out.
Cornwall is an exciting and vibrant region with lots of activities and things always happening and if you staying at any one of our cottages, you have the perfect base from which to take advantage of a wide variety of wonderful attractions.
The bustling picturesque seaside town of Looe provides a perfect base for your holiday in South East Cornwall.
Whether you are looking for a 'traditional' seaside holiday with your children or a break with friends in a picturesque Cornish fishing harbour, Looe is ideal.
Originally separate towns, East & West Looe existed as early as the 12th century and were divided by the River Looe. Before 1832 the twin towns had two Parliamentary seats. In 1411, the 'twin towns' were connected by an estuary bridge, the earliest in Cornwall. In 1698, this bridge was recorded as having 14 arches. Today, East and West Looe are joined together by a beautiful seven arch bridge built in 1853 about 100 yards further upstream from the original bridge.
For today's holiday maker East Looe has its own large sandy beach, shallow seas and a wealth of rock pools for the children to enjoy. During the summer, there are trampolines and other activities on the beach and the 'Banjo Pier' is a very popular place for a spot of rod & line fishing and for watching the fishing trawlers and other boats leave and return to the harbour. Looe is host to the Looe Music Festival, a 3 day weekend event in September bringing together an eclectic mix of live music and comedy performed at various venues around the town including the East Looe beach.
At Hannafore, West Looe, there is an easily accessible south facing beach of shingle and sand which has plenty of rock pools at low tide. This beach offers car parking along the sea front, ice-cream parlour, refreshments and toilets.
Only quarter of a mile from the beach is St George's Island (also known as Looe Island). In mediaeval days this was a monastic community and later a popular landing place for smugglers. When there is an exceptionally low Spring tide it is possible to walk to Looe Island but at other times, visitors can reach it by boat.
If beaches or water based activities are not your thing, then you can enjoy wandering the cobbled streets of the village with its' historic buildings, narrow twisting streets, interesting art galleries, antique and gift shops and a wide range of smugglers' taverns and fine restaurants. There is live music in many of the pubs each weekend and for anyone who just likes to chill out, relax, eat and drink, Looe continues to provide a good range of options all year round.
For anyone interested in a scenic rail journey, the Looe Valley railway offers a truly spectacular rail journey to Liskeard, an experience you would not wish to miss.
