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.

1st Visit and will be Back!

Our first visit to this lovely site. We were lucky to get a level hard standing pitch but unfortunately without the splendid view of the bay between the trees. It seems the grass pitches had more of a pleasant surrounding (aside of the play area - great for families but not for those who wish to be away from it all). Also, it's a shame that the service pitches seem to face onto the play area, considering it costs more for the facility I'd be pretty upset that I had to look out onto that vast caging area as a viewpoint. The pool looked lovely but I didn't try it out, however a fellow member had tried it and said it was lovely and warm. Our pitch, we found later was backed onto a static caravan site and there was a considerable amount of swearing -not that I'm a non-swearer - but it was a bit off-putting, with loud music at times and bumping of the base music in the distance. This tended to be in the evening. Shopping, if you need a good shop, it means going out a way although Looe has a co-op and a spar to get you by. The site shop didn't have much at all, other sites I've been to have had a good selection this shop seemed sparse to say the least. The staff however, great, friendly and very welcoming. That all said, we enjoyed our stay and would love to return. It would be nice if a few hardstandings were in the grass area at some point. Lots rabbits about! Watch out for them.

Got busy and rules too relaxed

Lovely, large site, with good shower blocks, small shop and an information room. We've been here when there was a set of workers run by a strict command, a few years ago. Could be annoying when the rules were adhered to, to sometimes an unnecessary level, like banging on the door during a storm, demanding we pay by an exact time when they could've waited for the storm to pass, when we extended. However, it was very efficiently run and the workers were conspicuous and always seemed to be on their toes working. The current management appears to be very laid back. Even letting people in to find pitches, not long after 11, which is disruptive when others are trying to leave. And not so restful when they all pile in early.... Speed levels on site are not enforced. Some going 20+mph the wrong way! Although most respect speed limits and one way signs. Children are here at the beginning of July - perhaps throwing sickies. And one night there was a group of kids running around everywhere, with huge water guns, shouting and noisy at 10pm. No warden in sight. And we don't feel they are checking properly. One example is there was a white transit van with sliding door, no fittings inside and a tent/awning on the side, on a grass pitch, masquerading as a motorhome! That is not ok, regarding the club rules, as far as we're aware, and yet wasn't checked or noticed, clearly. That said, it is more peaceful, than when staff were constantly on mowers or strimming, or driving around checking. But no sight of staff other than cleaning the blocks and emptying bins quickly, We don't feel quite so secure as we did here before. That said, the toilets are extremely clean. They don't seem to start cleaning before the time allocated, unlike some sites, where you're left in the shower getting ready and cleaning taking place before stipulated. The pool is lovely, the wardens friendly and generally helpful. Only thing is it seems particularly busy this year, maybe due to the great weather. Access to Looe is good via bus, but expensive for 2 returns. But it dues stop outside tbe site in season. It's on the whole a good site. Many of the pitches, including hard standings, are not level, so need wedges etc to raise. Improvements could be made to level the hard standings. The motorhome service area needs updating as the facilities are arduous to use, as they require precise lining up as well as being slow flowing taps.

Excellent staff.

Facilities very good and enjoyed using the site pool and crazy-golf. What sets the site apart from other club sites is the staff who were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful to myself and my husband who's mobility is not 100%. It looks like the site might get very busy during school holiday time, so bear this in mind when booking. The bus service into Looe is excellent for motorhomers, but pricey for the 3 mile trip (£4.20 return). Probably cheaper and more reliable than the car-park in Looe though, which had a 'car-park full' sign displayed each time we visited. Great fish and chips on the Harbourside of Looe, and all manner of pubs and restaurants in the town. Buses running until past eleven at night so you can have an evening out and get the bus back. Recommended.

A great Place to Stay

We had a lovely few days at the Looe Caravan Club Site. We booked it as a stop over after returning from France and didn't look at the facilities. What a surprise to find we had a swimming pool. It was fully heated which was better than the one we had in France. The grass pitches are sloping so we were lucky enough to get a hard-standing pitch. They are very popular so try to get there early if you want one. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. The site was spotlessly clean. We are definitely looking to go back again.
