Looe

Looe in South East Cornwall is a very popular family Holiday Resort town, divided into two distinct parts - East and West Looe - with the Looe river running through the centre of the town.

East Looe is the main tourism centre - a collection of narrow streets lined with shops cafes and pubs that lead through to the main town beach. The Beach is ideal for families. Bordered on the west by the Banjo pier - entrance to the main harbour and by a rocky promontory at the eastern edge, it is a compact beach.

Over the years, the town has retained its small fishing fleet, which return at high tide, to off load their catch alongside the riverside quay at the busy fish market, which dominates the towns east Quay. The river is spanned by a seven-arched Victorian bridge , giving access to both sides of the town and to the main Mill Pool Car Park. Looe has two parking areas, both in scenic locations - one adjacent to the rivers by the eastern side of the bridge, the other, larger car park, is on the wesern side of the river at the large Mill Pool Car park. The Mill pool runs along the length of the Western arm of the Looe river, with stunning scenery on the opposite bank, including a heronry. Children love to play along this stretch of the river, catching small fish and crabs from the relative safety of the path that runs along the banks of the Looe river,

Across the seven-arched Victorian bridge lies West Looe, with its 16th century Jolly Sailor Inn and St Nicholas Church and at Hannafore you can explore the rock pools on the beach and look across to St George's, or Looe Island, which has 12th century monastic cells and belonged once to the Abbot of Glastonbury.The island was popularised by the Atkins sisters in their books "We Bought an Island" and "Tales from our Cornish Island".

There are boat trips to the island in the summer season, as well as along the coast. For the more adventurous there are shark- fishing trips. A train journey on the Looe Valley Line will take you to the ancient stone circle at Duloe; the holy well at St Keyne; and Paul Corin's Music Machines.

South East Cornwall Bays and Beaches

Travelling east along the coast, you can see Amazon woolly monkeys in the protected breeding colony of the Monkey Sanctuary.

At the end of long, winding, wooded valleys are the beaches of Millendreath and Seaton and beyond Downderry the road runs along the cliffs through the village of Crafthole, standing high above the tiny harbour of Portwrinkle, a former fishing hamlet.

To the east lies the stunning four-mile stretch of sand and surf at Whitsand Bay, popular with beachgoers and shore fishermen. Guarding the entrance to Plymouth Sound is Rame Head, with its superb views, 400ft cliffs and 14th century chapel, where a beacon blazed at the time of the Armada. Look out for the many stone fortresses known as Palmerston Follies, a legacy of an 19th century defence initiative.

Continuing around the headland you will come across the little-visited, attractive and unspoilt coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, backed by high wooded cliffs. Here the future Henry Vll landed before the Battle of Bosworth; later the villages were a smugglers' haven.

Mount Edgcumbe

At the eastern edge of the Rame Peninsula, on the banks of the Tamar river and Plymouth Sound are the 865 acres of the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, with an orangery, Italian Garden and historic house rebuilt after the original was destroyed in the Blitz. There is also a passenger ferry to Plymouth. Nearby is the charming medieval village of St John, and the sheet of tidal water known as St John's Lake is recommended for bird-watching and its views.

At Torpoint you can enjoy a fine view of the naval dockyards at Devonport, across the stretch of the Tamar Estuary called the Hamoaze. A car ferry can take you to Plymouth itself, with its fascinating harbour and numerous attractions.
