There is a bus stop outside the main entrance and a ten minute journey will take you down to Looe and it then goes onto Polperro.
Looe is lovely old fashioned fishing village where a number of events are held throughout the year, for instance, the raft race in June, the Looe Music Festival in September and others throughout the year.
In 2018 the town of Looe was let down 3 weeks before the start of the Music Festival when the company running it went into administration. The local mayor made an appeal to all the local businesses and the public to raise £40,000 in the hope that they would be able to put on a music festival on time. The money was raised within 3 days and under the guise of Looe Saves the Day a very successful music festival took place on the weekend it was supposed to. Looe Music Festival was renamed for 2019 as Looe Live. Kev and I spent the weekend there and it was fabulous.
We have attended both the raft race, which was absolutely hilarious and the music festival which is extremely enjoyable.
The beach is beautiful and sandy and the local council go to some lengths during the season to keep it clean.
There are shops to browse in, cafes to sit down and enjoy a drink and a snack, some overlooking the harbour and bakers shops where you can buy cream teas to take away and, of course, the obligatory cornish pasty.
If you are looking for somewhere to eat there are a number of restaurants in the area, however, a must for dinner one evening has got to be fish and chips from the Coddy Shack, which is only five minute walk from the entrance to the park, where you can eat in or take away, once a month they also have live music. There is also a chinese takeaway in the town that will deliver your order to our caravan, their menu is in our caravan.
There are loads of attractions in the local area too, there are brochures in our caravan and more are available from reception. The Monkey Sanctuary is only ten minutes drive from the caravan. Porfell Wildlife Park is also worth a visit if you have small children. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are within an hour's drive of the caravan. We have even had guests who have been on day trips to Newquay, Porthcurno, Penzance, Lands End and also the Scilly Isles.
If you are a lover of old houses, the National Trust have three all within a 30 minute drive, Lanhydrock which is near Bodmin, Cothele is near to Saltash and Antony House is close to Torpoint. Cotehele also has a working water mill where they mill their own flour which can be purchased, on the days that the mill is working there may also be samples of cakes or pastries to try. A little further away, at Marazion near Penzance, is St Michael's Mount, it is about 70 miles away, but is well worth the visit, even though the walk up to the castle is over a steep cobbled walk way which isn't suitable for pushchairs.
