Good location especially for those who do not want to use their motorhome for local trips as there is a very good bus service outside the site entrance.

Superb walking area and a lovely beach in Looe. Nearby Polperro, not to be missed

Don't miss out on a trip, from Looe to Liskeard on the railway. Only £2.90 with a railcard!

The bus from the site stops outside the station and the Globe Pub opposite the station is worth a visit

Also excellent boat trips from Looe and Polperro.

The site itself has slopes that could possibly cause problems for anyone with a disability.

The site is basically made up, of two areas with a toilet block in each area.

The problem when we were there was that the top, facility's block was closed even though there were at least 40 units on the top site. The lower site( virtually all hard standing) was fully booked so the closure of the upper block was inexplicable especially as it clearly increased the pressure on the lower block.

The CDP, washing up area, and one unisex toilet were kept open but the staff were certainly not keen to open up the washrooms and showers.

The staff did however respond to comments about why the swimming pool, had been shut earlier than expected and re opened it for another week. Lovely pool and warm too!

Generally a very good site and well worth a visit but why shut a toilet block when there are lots of units on site!?

Arrived on site after 3 hours driving in relentless rain. Funny it stopped as we arrived on site. My first attempt to pitch on grass pitch, which I had requested on a lovely sunny day, went horribly wrong and I had to be rescued by the wardens who very swiftly restored my dignity and moved me to a hardstanding with views over the bay at Looe which could not be seen till the next day because of the mist. Levelling blocks are needed on most pitches.

The park and it`s two shower/toilet blocks were kept immaculate and were a real credit to the wardens. All of the wardens were friendly and helpful and always around keeping site up to scratch. There is a bus stop at the park entrance with buses to Plymouth, Looe, Polperro and liskeard running hourly. We were able to make full use of the buses with our bus concession passes.

There is a Fish and Chip van on site Thursday evening and Pizza van on Sunday. The latter I can recommend as we had eaten out on the Thursday and did not sample their wares. Overall this is a lovely friendly park in a lovely area coming a very close second to our favourite local site at Burford C&M Club.

Lovely CC site situated at the top of the hill approximately 2 miles outside of Looe. Stunning views from some of the pitches over both the countryside and coast.

Plenty of both hard standing and grass pitches to choose from.

2 toilet/shower blocks both spotlessly clean at all times.

Bins, with recycling, and waste & water points all around the site.

Indoor washing up facilities and laundry in both blocks.

The site is kept immaculate by the very hard working wardens.

It's a bit of a walk down into Looe but nothing compared to back up to the site! We did both (and survived. Just!). We also caught a taxi back up from town one evening - £7! There is a bus that now stops right outside the site but didn't use it and not sure how often it runs.

We did a walk directly from the site down to Looe via Millendreath. There's a café and bar on the beach there for your half way rest! You then take the coast path up and then down into Looe, stunning views all the way along and well worth it. Can highly recommend Sarah's Pasties, a very small, but busy bakery in the town. Yum!

We loved the site but felt it was a bit far out for motorhomers who rely on walking to/from places.

What a stunning site. Well kept and really nicely laid out with excellent facilities. The children's play area looks amazing although no children on site as they are all in school. Nice dog exercise area which has been enjoyed by many dogs on site this week. Very friendly and hard working wardens. A good location to tour the many attractions Cornwall has to offer and a peaceful site to return to following a busy day.

Excellent site, toilet block always spotless, staff so helpful, outdoor swimming pool lovely facility to have on a touring site + tennis court. Smashing fish restaurant just down the road (does other food) licenced, think it is called the coddy shack definitely worth a visit. I would recommend this site to anyone.

Looe clubsite is a very nice and quiet base from which you can investigate loo and the surrounding area. Its on several levels but reasonably compact for trips to shower block and recycling points. Staff are lovely and very helpful.

There's a bus stop right outside the entrance from where you can access loo and polperrot (car parking at both is difficult and no concessions for disabled badge holders.

Parking for 3 hours cost just over £3

There's more parking over the bridge but it will be a difficult walk back for pushchairs due to the steep hill you need to negotiate. )

Site itself is as mentioned good, telephone reception is good but poor mobile internet (ee in this case)

Site WiFi works to a reasonable standard but can suffer from lag at times (slow running)

Towing access is ok, follow the instructions given but those new to towing should know that the last few miles to site are tight and may quicken the pulse rate.

Those who like to indulge in some people watching while on site may like to know that the layout is such that your opportunities are limited due to the layers between pitches.

You have a view of your row but it's a limited view.

Would I stay here again? There's certainly nothing stopping me but if I were looking for better views from the van I may look at alternatives

Myself and my husband have just returned from Looe Caravan Club site where we stayed for the Looe music festival. The location of the site is ideal, as there is a bus stop literally just outside the entrance of the site which takes you into Looe, but what's even better is for the music festival a courtesy bus runs, it stops at the same stop as the normal bus, and it only cost £1 each way. The journey is 10 minutes and runs until 1 in the morning.

I will tell you about the site first. It's lovely ! Very clean ! Great shower blocks. Plenty of showers, toilets and private hand basins, there are also 2 hair driers in the ladies toilets. There is a dish washing room, again plenty of sinks. They have clothes washing/drying facilities. Good ELSAN point and grey water disposal. There is a small shop on site, selling the basics. The is good WIFI on site. The site is laid out really well. Each unit has plenty of space. The views are great over the rambling hills. The wardens are very friendly, helpful and humorous.

Now, as I mentioned earlier the reason we were in Looe was for the music festival. It's a really fab weekend. Lots of music, not only at the dedicated venues, (2 of which are on the beach, what a great backdrop to watch music), but around the town in the pubs and in the winding streets. Looe really is a quaint place. There is music for all tastes.

If you like music, food and beer then this festival is for you. 2016 the dates are 16th to 18th September.

Get yourselves to Looe Caravan Club site where you will be made very welcome !

Myself, my daughter, her friend and our 2 dogs have just had a lovely week at this very well kept site, a treat for my daughter after finishing her GCSE exams. The wardens are friendly, facilities clean and plentiful. Pool is excellent, with plenty of sunloungers and separate paddling pool for little ones. Playground, sports courts and mini golf all good, clean and safe for children.

A fish and chip van calls on a Monday night, chips were good but not as good as those from 'The Coddy Shack' just down the road.

Looe and Polperro are lovely places to explore, take a trip on the ferry at Fowey, lots of narrow lanes to navigate when satnav directs you around the countryside.

A lovely site that I'd definitely return to when in the area. We had a great holiday.

Fantastic quiet site with well stocked shop. Really peaceful too with no road noise. The couple who run it are really friendly and helpful too. The toilet block is very 'posh' and very clean. Good chip shop just up the road, the Chinese take-a-way delivers and there is a good local pub to drive to. There is a children's play area but it's not massive and but ok but as we don't have children that was fine. Black Rock beach and café is also local but is quite a walk, especially coming back up the hill - only for the fit, but is accessible by car also. The Monkey Sanctuary is also within walking distance. I would definitely return to this site as we loved staying there.

When I was here only the hard standing pitches and one facilities block was open, this was perfectly adequate given the lack of caravanners. The wardens were very helpful, helping a friend with her television that refused to get a picture when she was assured she should be able to get one with a coat hanger. I had no problems and wifi was good. Phone on EE was ok. From some of the pitches you can get a glimpse of the sea in the distance, bring binoculars if you want to be able to see the ships. It is a nice looking site with quite a big playground, on the grass and super pitch side, with a swimming pool and mini golf. It depends if you like the pitches in long straight rows, one above the other, the site slopes from reception downwards, even some of the hard standings are not perfectly level so you may need ramps.

The site was quiet when I was there, but there were very few people, I would not like to be there when it is busy, but the wardens said it is usually quiet and only gets really busy for 8 weeks in the summer holidays. Usual CC facilities block spotlessly clean. My only adverse comment were not enough water and toilet emptying points, depending on where you are it can be a long drag up hill with either a full water or full waste tank, and toilet emptying is only in the facilities block.

One place you must try is the Coddy Shack just down the road towards Looe. Excellent fish and chips lovely restaurant, sheds with nets hanging from the roof with fairy lights, all of the menu can be done as a take away apart from the mussels, try the seafood platter.
