Looe Caravan Club Site, St Martin, Looe, PL13 1PB, Tel 01503 264006
To Find Site:- From the A38 at Trerulefoot take the A374 signed for Looe/Torpoint. In about mile turn right onto the A387 signed for Looe. In a further three and a half miles the road forks with the A387 going off to the right, it is here you take the left hand fork onto the B3253. The campsite is a further 2 miles on just after the Tregoad campsite. This is the recommended route as coming from Looe you have to negotiate a very sharp turn onto the B3253. During June, July and August the site stipulates no arrivals before 2.00pm.
This open all year campsite is split into two sections with a total of 190 pitches. The upper section has all grass pitches which are on a slight slope so you might need some levelling blocks. The lower section has all hardstanding pitches which are level and laid out in terraces. There are views of the sea from some pitches on the lower section. Both areas have their own toilet blocks. During our stay it was only the lower section that was in use. Rather unusually for a Caravan Club Site this one has a swimming pool which seems only to be open in the main season. Also there is a tennis court, a nine hole mini golf course and play equipment. There is also what is called a 'Snack Shack' which is a summer house type building which houses some vending machines selling coffee, sweets and soft drinks. Again it was not open during our stay but I assume it has similar opening times to the swimming pool. Reception sells milk, bread and newspapers. We visited this campsite in mid October 2006 and found it a very pleasant and relaxed place to stay. I would imagine that it is a very different place in the high season when it undoubtedly is very busy. This might explain why there are so many don't do this don't do that notices everywhere! I think I counted 9 on the toilet block notice board alone.
This campsite is only a couple of miles out of Looe which is still a small working fishing port. We visited both the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan from here. Looe is also convenient for may other attractions and places but allow time to get to them as the roads can be quite slow and crowded. There is a small supermarket in Looe but the larger ones are a bit further out the nearest being at Liskeard with a couple more in St Austell. Click on thumbnails below for a larger picture.
