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.

"Home away from home"
Beautiful little cottage, it had everything you could possibly need. Loved the interior and all the little nick naks. Superb location, it took just ten minutes to get to the beach and was right next to the little ferry. Cute little garden to use. Although we had a specific check in time the owners called to say the cottage was ready when we were which was great. The Spa shop was just at the back of the cottage, which is where we also parked the car for the few days without cost. The cost for three nights was really affordable, in fact no other company could contend with that price. Had problems initially connecting to the WiFi, and the owner came round to help us out which was really nice. To top it off we had blazing sunshine everyday, couldn't have wished for a better holiday. We will definitely go back to this cottage again.

"An enjoyable break"
We stayed at Quay Cottage for a week. It's a perfect base for exploring and walking the coastal path. Being in West Looe is quieter than the East side, but a 6-8 minute walk gets you amongst the shops & restaurants, or you can take the water taxi (50p each way).
The cottage has two bedrooms, but is I think it's size is better suited for a couple. A nice log burner with some wood/coal supplied. If you feel the need to stay in, the galley kitchen is well stocked with utensils. Wi-Fi provided but unreliable while we were there. The local pub (jolly Sailor) serve a really good pint
