Polperro, South Cornwall
Surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty, Looe is an ideal base for a family holiday.
Situated on the sheltered coastline of South East Cornwall, this enchanting fishing village has some lovely traditional buildings, winding streets, historic taverns and some of Cornwall's finest restaurants.
There are many historic buildings in the town including the Guildhall, built around the turn of the 15th century.
Historically, Looe has been a centre for fishing and seafaring with fishermen from the village exchanging Cornish fish, for wool, corn, slate, salt and wine from France and wood and iron from Spain.
These days Looe is still a bustling working port. Fishermen head out around the coast and further out to sea to catch fish. The National Shark Angling Club of Great Britain have their headquarters locally. Many visitors take pleasure watching the local boats coming in and out, and afterwards sampling some of the catch at local restaurants.
There's plenty to occupy you in Looe with a wide range of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Many serve locally caught seafood from the local fish market. Take time to enjoy wandering the ancient cobbled streets of the village and browse the art galleries, antique and gift shops.
The lovely twin rivers of East and West Looe meet and pass under the seven-arched stone bridge that connects the two towns. The safe bay and estuary are a magnet for sailors and other water sports enthusiasts. Looe has its own sandy beach and there are many other fine beaches, bays and coves nearby. Only quarter of a mile from the beach is St George's Island, once a popular landing place for smugglers.
Looe is a great place to visit at any time of the year, and is the perfect location for exploring the rest of Cornwall, including the Eden Project & the award winning Lost Gardens Of Heligan.
