Cornwall is for the most part surrounded by the sea. The Gulf Stream effects the temperature and the area is generally warmer than you would expect.
Looe, Cornwall is a fascinating and ancient fishing village dating back to the reign of Edward I. Never far from the sea or river its narrow streets add to the aura of mystery and charm which has made this coastline renowned as a smuggler's retreat. Its gentle climate and sheltered position offer a chance to peacefully browse - through the old town or the vibrant and colourful life of the still active fishing harbour.
Looe, Cornwall is the perfect holiday centre and an ideal base for seeing both Devon and Cornwall.
