 We had heard previous comments that the pitches were cramped but did not find this to be the case - we had plenty of room. The pool was nice and warm and the kids loved playing in it. The bottom end of the site is mainly hardstanding and the top end grass. We prefer hard standing but they were in demand and we ended up with a grass pitch but still had plenty of room. The site is sloping so you will need blocks under you corner steadies to get the reach. Showers and toilets were clean. There is a small hut with vending machines and the shop sells bread, milk and a chocolate bars. Looe itself is about a 5-10 min drive away. The site has 2 tennis courts which don't need pre-booking (just wait your turn) and crazy golf (clubs/balls) hired free from the shop).

 We stayed for one week at the end of July, just at the start of the school summer holidays.

Booking information stated that there should be no arrivals before 2pm. However, having arrived at 2:10pm we found that most of the arrivals for that day had already checked-in way earlier and nabbed all the available hardstandings! If I were to book again, I would ignore the arrival instruction, as everyone else seems to do!

Although large and level, the hardstandings are quite unattractive, with little in the way of soft landscaping or planting around them for relief. They are also more exposed to any windy weather, with the grass pitches being much more sheltered.

We found ourselves a suitable corner grass pitch and settled in. Almost all of the grass pitches are sloping, for which you need levellers and/or blocks and many of them are not very deep, something you may want to bear in mind if you have a long twin-axle van and/or intend to use an awning annexe. It also means that caravans on opposite sides of the narrow roadways are looking directly into each otherís front windows, in close proximity and double rows are back to back with each other as well.

The views of Looe bay referred to in the CC site book are almost non-existent and I believe they are removing this from the site book for next year. Mostly the view is of other caravans, and if you are lucky, views across the valley towards the bay.

The site is well maintained, the pitches are mown usually within minutes of being vacated, ready for the next arrival. The toilets and showers are typical of club sites and are kept as clean as possible in spite of the high-usage. Showers provide plenty of continuously flowing water, with temperature adjustment.

Even though it was peak season, the site generally settled down quietly at night Ė but thereís always one isnít there? In our case a large family group nearby caused some disturbance late into the evenings.

The outdoor swimming pool is lovely and warm, but does get very busy in the afternoons. Other facilities are mini-golf (clubs & balls on loan) and tennis (own equipment required). The shop sells a few bare essentials, otherwise there is a well-stocked Londis nearby, and a small Somerfield in Looe itself. The nearest large supermarket is some distance away (7 miles?) at Liskeard.

I think our eating-out experience is worth a mention. In the heart of Looe there is the usual collection of smoky pubs serving food , plus chip shops, pasty shops etc, but not much in the way of other family dining. We were lucky enough to get a table at a small restaurant called Grapevine, where the menu suited both our more sophisticated adult tastes and the unadventurous requirements of our eight-year-old son. The food and the service here were both excellent, with an early evening low-price menu. Advance booking is recommended as almost all the tables were reserved.

 Friendly staff, the site is up to the usual caravan club standard.Site is more or less split into two,lower pitches mostly gravel hardstanding.Clean toilet block,reception stocked with basics and newspapers to order.Looe is a 30 minute walk away,45 minute return as very steep,infrequent bus service and taxi fare expensive.In Looe try "Miss Marples tea rooms" for delicious home made soup or varied snack menu or visit Looe Pasty shop on Buller street near the harbour for the best Cornish Pasties I've tasted.

Wonderful site - great pool and facilities although a bit expensive. Site staff very helpful. Looe was beautiful and would definately visit the area again

At first I was a bit put off by all the signs but although there are rules the wardens are not on your back all the time and it was exceptionally clean

The usual Caravan Club standards. Huge site with Swimming Pool, 2 Tennis Courts, Crazy Golf and huge childrens play area.
The site offers a well stocked shop, having fresh local Cornish Pasties delivered daily. Cream Teas and all the basics are stocked.
The wardens were faultless, they where run of their feet and still kept a smile, nothing was to much trouble.
There are limited hard standings, we thought the grass pitches did not offer much room or privacy. having said that it was very busy. The Pool was very popular also, it would be nice to see an adults only slot early morning and after tea so one might actually swim.
Looe is a wonderfull working fishing town, Dave's Diner by the Fish Market, offers the best fish & chips on the south coast(in my oppionion)
Good all round site only spoilt slightly by the odd one who can't be bothered to mop out their shower after them or allow their kids to run riot.
Would visit again.
