We’ve yet to find a Caravan and Motorhome Club site that has not lived up to expectations. The clubs Looe site in Cornwall has friendly staff, generous pitches and spotlessly clean facilities.
This is a great site for families as a base to explore South East Cornwall . There’s also plenty onsite for the kids. With its heated open-air swimming pool (end May-mid Sep), tennis court, crazy golf and ball game area, there’s more than enough to keep the family happy at the Looe Club Site.
There’s a small but well stocked shop on site. However, it does close early. Should you get caught short there’s a mini market in the neighbouring caravan site.
Looe Caravan and Motorhome site pitches are charged out at the high end of the clubs stay rates. If the above facilities aren’t of interest, you’ll find a more reasonable club stay elsewhere in the county.
Out and About in Looe
The site is a 25 minute walk from Looe Harbour and town centre. Be warned, the walk in to Looe isn’t the most scenic. Part of it follows the main road and there’s a fairly steep descent to the Harbour, which is twice as tough on your return. However, you can rest your legs and enjoy the best fish and chips in Cornwall at ‘The Coddy Shack’. You can eat in or take away but it does get very busy so book in advance.
Looe town centre and harbour is lovely. There’s some nice shops and eateries, with a lot of restaurants serving the ‘catch of the day’ from the local fishing fleet.
The South West Coast Path can be picked up from Looe. The path is joined at Looe train station and passes through Talland and Polperro covering 5.7 miles. The first mile is on flat tarmac, while the rest is on paths, with some ascent and descent.
Enjoy this coastal walk taking in a holy legend and a sixth century monastery, as well as an eighteenth century eccentric and a nineteenth century engineer. There are rockpools on the beaches, with remnants of shipwrecks and tales of smugglers. The walk ends with a stroll up through the picturesque fishing village of Polperro to Crumplehorn, where you can catch a bus back to Looe. A good autumn walk for spotting migrant birds: finches and warblers in the hedges, skuas and terns offshore, and sometimes even the more unusual Sooty shearwater.
