Natural Feature
“Looe is approximately 30 minutes away by car. You will either love it or hate it! There are lots of tourist shops to wander round and plenty of places to eat but it gets very busy in the Summer and the beach will be full. I still love Looe though, the kids can go crabbing off the quay and there are boat rides out to sea for a bit of fishing. There are coastal paths if you want to get away from the crowds.”

Cafe
“Great little café, coffee shop and bistro situated on Looe's Quay. Serves a great selection of sandwiches, paninis, tapas, and cakes. Often open later in the summer, serving wine, gin and pastis. A great family run café with fabulous views across the harbour. Inside and outside seating. Dog and child friendly, although Looe beach is not dog friendly between May and October, but Hannafore beach over on West Looe is pooch friendly all year round.”
