Travel Guide to holidays in... Looe, Cornwall, England



Looe is a small fishing port and village in the South East of Cornwall, divided in two by the River Looe which runs through East Looe and West Looe, which are connected by a bridge across the river. With sandy beaches, a number of interesting shops and restaurants, fishing trips and regular boat rides, there is much to interest the visitor and plenty to keep folk returning year after year.

Although Looe’s primary business today is tourism, there are a still a good number of local fish dealers bringing in daily catches which are renowned for their quality. Looe has also become something of a centre for shark fishing, the Shark Angling Club of Great Britain having its home here. Nevertheless the influence of tourism in the town is obvious, given the amount of accommodation available, along with gift shops, restaurants, ice cream parlours and, of course, bakeries selling Cornish pasties!

East Looe is notable both for its sandy beach and for the fish dealers who operate on the quay along the estuary. There is an unsual pier called the Banjor Pier and it is on this side of the river that the Looe Valley branch line has its terminus station, providing convenient rail access to the area. Across the river is West Looe, which, like East Looe, has a good number of shops and restaurants. The road through here heads off to the popular fishing village of Polperro – an essential visit if you’re in the area.

There are a number of attractions within driving distance, including Woolly monkey sanctuary, Cotehele, Lanhydrock House, and of course Looe is a great place to visit if you want to fish, dive, walk the coastal path or simply relax on the beach. With Go2’s wide selection of holiday lets in and around Looe, including cottages and accommodation in various holiday parks, you’ll find plenty of choice of where to stay, in what is one of Cornwall’s finest resorts. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

North Cornwall

Wilder and more rugged than the south of the county, North Cornwall is a land of tall headlands, sandy beaches and empty moorland – yours to explore from one of our holiday cottages in North Cornwall. The busy resort of Newquay is a major attraction, with its glorious beaches and fantastic conditions for surfers. Nearby Perranporth also boasts some fantastic beaches, perfect for sun-lovers. You’ll find many more lovely beaches, like those at Bude for example, waiting for you on one of our North Cornwall cottage holidays. This part of Cornwall has become a bit of a mecca for food lovers too. Rick Stein has put Padstow on the map and more chefs, including Jamie Oliver, are joining him, attracted by the quality of the ingredients available locally. Then there is St. Ives, long a haunt of artists drawn here by the wonderful light and inspiring scenery. A cottage holiday in North Cornwall puts you in touch with history from ancient celtic times to the days of the smugglers. Tintagel Castle, rumoured to be the birthplace of King Arthur, sits high on a cliff and still has a strange air of mystery about it.

South Cornwall

Wonderful scenery, a mild climate, sparkling blue seas and charming seaside villages make South Cornwall a firm favourite for cottage holidays whatever the season. And we have a fabulous choice of holiday cottages in South Cornwall from which to make the most of this lovely part of the country. The Cornish Riviera takes in some of South Cornwall’s most popular resorts and many of our holiday cottages in South Cornwall are located nearby. Picturesque Fowey is a haven for sailors, while the Roseland Peninsula is a noted beauty spot. Mevagissey, St. Mawes and St. Just are all well worth a visit. Not to be missed is the Eden Project, a fascinating recreation of different biospheres, featuring a wide variety of exotic plantlife. You should also make time for a trip to atmospheric St. Michael’s Mount and on to Land’s End, the most westerly point in England. The county town of Truro has a lovely cathedral and some excellent shopping opportunities, while Penzance is a bustling resort, famed for its warm weather and sub-tropical plants. And do make sure you sample the pasties, saffron cake and clotted cream – all local delicacies, – during your cottage holiday.
