Why stay here ...

With its heated open-air swimming pool (end May-mid Sep), tennis court, crazy golf and ball game area, there's more than enough to keep the family happy at the Looe Club Site. Two pitching areas divided by conifers and flowering cherries, plus distant views of Looe Bay give the park its attractive appeal.

The nearby town of Looe boasts many fine restaurants such as The Coddy Shack, a local fish and chip shop and other places of interest - watch the catch come ashore at the working fishing harbour, take the children crabbing in the Hannafore Rock Pools or take in the marvellous view of Looe Island. The town also hosts an annual music festival, held just a few minutes away from the site. For the walkers in the family, Looe Club Site provides easy access to the beautiful Cornwall Coastal Path, which runs right around the peninsula and across the border into Devon. The sheltered cove of Millendreath offers rock pools to explore and is a short walk from the site. Nearby, the largest indoor rainforest in the world, the Eden Project, is a fabulous day out for all ages. From water fun to scenic views, the caravan site has options to keep the whole family happy.

Enjoyable stay at Looe Bay

My Wife and I had a relaxing 15 day break at Looe Bay after a busy year, we found the site was excellent, very friendly staff and the facilities met our requirements. After reading some of the reviews of this site I can say we had no experience of noise or disturbance or unruly children. I did have conversations with other members whilst on holiday and understand there were some problems at the top of the site with power and the shower-block. I can understand the frustration if there were such problems. Having toured as a child for many years with my parents I used to look forward to the freedom that caravanning brings, its a rich experience for children to travel around various parts of the country experiencing the joys the United Kingdom has to offer. In my latter years I now have the pleasure of owning a caravan, I am a parent and also have many nieces and nephews so I understand the importance of managing play, ensuring children have freedom but also act respectfully and courteously to other members. I think members need to mindful that children need freedom, play is a vital part of a child's development. It appears from some of the reviews that the balance was not quite right between solitude seekers and those enjoying family holidays. When seeking sites I normally seek quieter sites, either Club Sites or other independent sites as my Daughter is now older and independent so our focus is on solitude and relaxation. Maybe there is a bit more the club can do to indicate sites that are better for solitude and quiet relaxation or vice versa be clearer that a site is more family oriented. To be fair the logos on the caravan club site do indicate there is a play area, paddling pool and baby changing facilities so is fairly clear that it is a family orientated site. In high season I would read that as very busy with children on summer holidays enjoying freedom and children developing via play and rich learning experiences.

Why close a facilities block when the site is busy!?

First visit to this site on 10th September 2018 Easy to find and generally speaking an excellent location especially for motor caravaners who intend to use public transport as the regular bus service from the site entrance was excellent. Disappointed to hear when we arrived that the upper toilet/,shower block and swimming pool had shut two days earlier even though a) the site was busy and b) the pool was advertised as not shutting until mid September. I understand that a number of people expressed their disappointment about this and the Pool did in fact open up again for another week as a result. Great ...as the pool was warm and a lovely ! However the showers did not. The lower site pitches were all full and there were over 40 pitches being used at times on the top site so clearly this impacted on the number of people who were using the lower site showers etc which were now a considerable distance for many of those of us on the top site. The washing up area, the CDP and one unisex toilet were opened on the top block and I believe the disabled room was available for those who needed it and had a key but surely with so many pitches in use some of the toilets and showers should and could have been made available. The impression given was that after the first week in September the top block was shutting regardless as that was site policy. Strange as no doubt all those on top site pitches had paid the same On the plus side of things the site was very clean and tidy and although some of the grass pitches needed levellers this was made clear in the site information

17 night visit.

Hi arrived on the 10th August for a 17 night stay,first thing to note is always follow the handbook direction and not your Sat nav as you will find out when driving solo. The site was at maximum when we booked in ,the wardens were excellent in accomodating large outfits with bigger pitches keeping everyone happy.the site is spilt into two we were pitched in the lower section which has its own toilet block.the pool is great and well marsheld by the wardens the only down side it does really need its own toilet/shower area.plenty to see and do around looe we used the local beach many times and just wished there was a wetsuit wash on site ,there was plenty of wetsuits hanging on lines around and so I guess a wash would be well used.a special mention to the wardens who were all very approachable and hard working in keeping a very busy sitebticking over thanks guys it is appriecated.

noise and unrulie children

we stayed at looe for 6 nights, we thought that we would tour that side of looe, before moving on to perranporth, as soon as we got threw the barriers it was like a hell hole, children riding bikes and scooters all over, not a care that there were cars towing caravans coming. when we finally got pitched children were coming down hill on bikes and scooters, wrong way and taking blind corners fast, its a miracle no child has been killed by car or motorhome. some of the wardens were miserable never spoke or smiled. some people thought it was ok to leave dirty foot prints in showers and not clean them. dogs left to roam. pitches uneven, people having to unsafely level there units. nice location but defo for family's, never again
