Why stay here ...

With regret we have made the difficult decision not to open the swimming pool at Looe Club Site this year. We have put considerable effort and expense into finding qualified lifeguards but this has proved impossible with the recruitment issues in the leisure and hospitality industry at present, particularly in the Cornwall area.

As a gesture of goodwill we are offering a discount of £4 per night in peak season and £2 per night in mid-season on site fees. These discounts will come into effect from 19th July to 11th September 2021. (Discounts will be manually calculated at check in). Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience or disapointment caused.

With its 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.

Please Note: Crazy Golf and Tennis is available on site but your own racquets and golf clubs will need to be used.

Excellent late summer break

Looe Club Site
We visited in late September, and found the site still nearly full, but considering the pitches didn’t look too bad, the grass around the hard standing pitch we where on was absolutely fine, by chance we struck lucky with the sun on the pitch morning and evening so where more than happy. The wardens where friendly and informative about the site and area and the facilities although we don’t use these that often preferring our own, where of a good standard. If you are into dogs the site will be for you, not our cup of tea but I can’t hold the site responsible for the occasional bursts of frenzied barking. As we visited during school term the site was quiet, however it’s location and proximity to Looe was excellent, as was the fish and chips just a couple of minutes down the road.

Very enjoyable stay

Looe Club Site
Booked in easily: there was a queue but all dealt with quickly. Chose hardstanding (143) overlooking one of the toilet blocks. Good sized pitch though chocks were required. Facilities were very clean and if you choose your time carefully, not busy - though the site was pretty much full. Staff were friendly and helpful. A neighbour arriving just before we left had dogs which did yap a bit but not so much that it disturbed us. We witnessed one incident of dog fouling where the pizza van is - disgusting. But overall, I did not experience any problem with dogs. There is a wood fired pizza van twice a week and an ice cream van. The pizzas were fantastic. There is a bus stop directly outside the entrance to the site which goes into Looe but we walked - it's steep but doable in half an hour. The bus from Looe into Polperro 'blobbed' so we shared a taxi with other passengers. From there we took the coastal walk back to Looe and campsite - a lot of walking but really beautiful, lots of beaches and scenic coastline. We also got the train from Looe into Plymouth. The journey was about an hour costing about £6.50ea return. Had a nice day wandering round the Hoe/Quayside. Also visited "32 New Street" - preserved Elizabethan house with stories to tell. Overall, very enjoyable stay on a nice campsite, the weather was glorious, the location was convenient. Would visit again definitely.

Not a site for peace and quiet

Looe Club Site
The reason this site is no good for peace and quiet is due to the sheer number of dogs which the owners allow to bark and bark and worse than that, they allow them to foul on other people pitches rather than getting them to the dog walk. It’s about time the club, which is run for ‘all the members’, introduced dog free areas for members who object to the noise and fouling of their pitches which seems to be getting out of hand. The final comment is this practice of reserving pitches for, so we were told, large rigs, only to see a medium sized caravan park up on a premium pitch. About time the club allocated pitches on arrival which would stop the practice of someone in the party walking round the site with a deckchair and plonking themselves down on a prime pitch whilst the husband checks in at reception. So selfish and needs to be stopped.
