Reviewer: Rads 15 reviews from this member

 So once you've seen a CC site, you've seen them all. Well no, not exactly. The site is situated on the side of a hill and is split into two - a hard standing area where the pitches are terraced, and a grassed area where the vast majority of pitches are sloping. In both areas the pitches are fairly small and in the grassed area very close (back to back). For that reason we pitched on one of the four pitches directly above the crazy golf course. While you are relatively far apart, you will need a substantial quantity of blocks if you want to be level.

If you do have difficulty in manoeuvring on or off your pitch - and I'd say this is the tightest Club site to manoeuvre in - the wardens will help with their mini tractor.

That said, in all other respects, this is a typical Club site.

The outdoor swimming pool was a hit with the kids and remained warm throughout our stay.

Turn left out of the site and then turn left at the junction with the two boats and you will find a Londis and also a fish and chip shop (best in Cornwall according to the woman who runs the adjacent B&B). If you turn right, there is a well stocked farm shop about three miles on the right.

When going into Looe, park in the car park adjacent to the petrol station. The one by the harbour is much more expensive and charges apply 24 hours a day.

The best beach in the area is at Seaton. Lots of space, lots of parking and fairly safe. The beachside cafe does good food and drinks to take out.

 The wardens very friendly and helpful although the site itself a little disappointing as pitches very close together on the grass area, plus it had been raining constantly so very muddy. The pitches at the bottom of the site are hardstanding with much more room. Had a few incidents with young teenagers acting up at night which is a first on a Caravan Club site.

 We stayed here for three weeks, and sadly almost drowned there was so much rain! The rain did sadly have a considerable effect on a large part of the site, despite a lot of hard work on the part of the wardens, who always managed a smile in the most difficult of circumstances.

The facilities were quite 'tired', but so long as the local council get their finger out there will be extensive upgrading going on later in the year. Having said that, they were quite usable, and generally clean, certain lazy campers excepted.

Unfortunately, I think that for the size of the site they could do with losing about 30 pitches - I prefer to have a little more space between pitches. In addition, several of the rows of grass pitches back onto each other, making this situation appear worse. Many people (me included) had all sorts of problems getting on and off the pitches due to the minimal room available. It will be interesting to see if this improves with the site works at the end of the season.

The pool was great though - warm and clean and rarely packed. The site was clean and well kept, and the wardens always on the 'go' ensuring it remained that way. Two tennis courts, mini crazy golf & play area kept the kids amused in dry weather, but these may all be changed with the site redevelopment.

It was an ideal base to explore much of Cornwall - Looe itself is a fantastic place. If you've got kids, take them crabbing in the harbour.Hours of fun for minimal outlay. Parking is plentiful several hundred yards from the town centre.

Would thoroughly recommend the Golden Guinea restaurant in Looe town centre,and the Harbour Moon on the harbour front. Great food at good prices, with cracking service. Also worth a visit are the Tom Sawyer at Hannafore and the Jubilee Inn at Pelynt.

Interesting days out can be found at Charlestown (45 mins), Bodmin Jail (45 mins), Mevagissey (45 mins) and Polperro. If going to Polperro, don't use the 'Chips Ahoy' restaurant near the harbour front; worst fish & chips we've ever had! Sadly they were followed a close second by the chip van that visited the site.

The tight conditions apart, this is a nice site in an ideal location.

 This is a typical Caravan Club site, perfectly located just above Looe. The amenities are to standard Club specification but are starting to look a little tired (due for update this year). The dog walk is small but adequate.

The grass pitches are generally all sloping and some require the use of blocks to achieve level. They are also quite closely spaced, so there are specific pitching instructions which you ignore at your peril! Many of the rows of pitches are back-to-back and you may well get to be very familiar with your neighbours.

There are also substantial numbers of hardstandings.

We stayed before, after and during school half-term. During the busy half-term week we never had to queue for showers but, bizarrely, when the site was virtually empty we were queuing every day! This is because the wardens decided to lock-off showers and toilet cubicles - presumably to keep them clean.

This is a site we will return to.

 We've just got back from an out-of-season long weekend away at this lovely CC site.
The wardens were very nice and helpful on arrival.
We were told to choose our own pitch (they were only using the hard-standing section of the site as it was February/out-of-season).

Large pitches, some flat some slightly sloping. Most had views of Looe Bay in the February sunshine. Washroom/washing-up facilities were up to the usual very high CC standard and were heated 24 hours a day.
From the site you can walk into Looe (approx 1.5 - 2 miles downhill - watch it on the way back!) with fantastic views overlooking the town/harbour/bay. Alternatively, there's a bus stop outside Looe Bay Holiday Park 100yrds up the road!
About half-way down to Looe there is a row of 'handy' shops, including an off-licence, newsagents, fish & chip shop and cafe. There is also a pub there but we didn't try it out this time! Looe itself has plenty to offer.
Lots of pubs, cafes, restaurants, tearooms and shops. It is a VERY DOGGIE-FRIENDLY town. Try Daisys Tearooms as your 4-legged friends are allowed inside with you! Plenty to see and do in the harbour/beach area too, although there is an ALL YEAR ROUND dog ban on the main beach now! :o( Walk to Hannafore (3/4 mile from the bridge) for great views of Looe (St Georges) Island.
We also walked the wooded trail of Kilingforth Woods (the entrance can be found on the left-hand side of Millpool car park - looking towards the estuary). When the tide is out you can follow the estuary route. The birdlife is wonderful. We saw allsorts, including herons and little egrits.

All in all Looe is a great place to visit and we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the CC site as a great place to stay.

 Usual Caravan Club super facilities toilet block and showers all kept clean and tidy, good hot water. We were there August week leading up to the Bank Holiday and found only a couple of times did we have to wait for a shower - when the pool had just closed and lots of swimmers arrive. Hard standing pitches were well laid out - we stayed on the grass pitch at the end of the Hard Standings worth remembering this was lovely and flat and nice for the children to play on and had a view of Looe Bay.

Very good sized area for children to play on but could be improved with some seating for adults to keep an eye on them.

The pool is a real winner - a shallower one for small children too, with lifeguard on duty, both were nicely kept and heated.

You can catch a bus from the adjoining Holiday Looe Bay Holiday Park into Looe or Plymouth, or walk to the Church on the bend and have a chance of catching the town bus, we found the walk into Looe too far for children. Large car park in Looe - over the bridge and turn right. Or change bus at the bridge in Looe and go on to Polperro for the day, its quaint and not too spoilt, there is a free lift down to the village (cars not permitted) in a landrover but some prefer to pay for the horse & cart

 This was our very first outing and the Wardens were very helpful. We were allowed on the site even though we got there well before 12 - but it was half empty. The bottom half of the site is all hard-standing and the top, next to the office, is grassed. The hard standing area has a better outlook. We didn't have enough rock pegs but were able to buy some from the Office.

Each half has a loo block - they are quite old but clean and functional. We had visiting vans to the site selling fish, fresh picked organic strawberries and on Saturdays and Wednesdays a fish and chip van from 5pm - and it was really good.

Looe is nice to visit - parking can be difficult though. We were told afterwards that there is a free parking area (not signposted). When you go over the bridge as if driving on to the Polperro road, turn immediately left and drive up the hill. Seems coaches also know to park there.

Site is being refurbished completely and closing November 2007 - we heard it was supposed to open June 2008.

 Nice site well laid out, wardens very cheerful, dog walk good. Only problem we had was that we had to wait for the showers when the site was busy, the site closes at the end of the season for up grading hope they add more showers .Found a nice dining out place in Looe. Its called Cafe Cuisine only room for 12 diners, take your own wine, 3 course set menu (3 choices) for under 15 per person food was wonderful. Will be back

Reviewer: Carousel 25 reviews from this member

 This is a large site with grass and hard standings but when we visited only the lower hard standings were being used. Although there is little in the way of shrubs or trees in this section the pitches are extremely spacious so you don't feel too close to your neighbours. The facilities were good and always clean and the dog walk ideal. The views from the site encourage you to explore the area and there are endless surprises down the narrow winding lanes . Looe itself is quaint - if you have a dog go to the far end of the beach where there is an area where dogs are allowed. Ideal base to tour this less visited part of Cornwall and within easy driving distance for the Eden Project.

 Very nice site, good views of surrounding countryside, good facilities for both children & any animals you may have.

Lovely showers/toilets and a well stocked shop, even a man who brings fresh strawberries from his farm!

Recommended, very close to polperro and other places of interest, plenty to see and do in this region.
