See barrows, remnants of castles, dwellings and other fascinating sites. There is also a chapel that was dedicated to St Michael the Archangel dating from the medieval period.

It’s a magical little town, with lots of walks and little winding streets sweeping over 800 acres along the coast.

The walk is approximately 4.5 miles and starts at Port Winkle, passing the Whitsand Battery and Freathy and ending up at the Whitsand Bay Holiday Park.

Initially there was an issue with recreational seating as there wasn't enough for all of us. However a phone call to the owners rectified this problem within an hour even though they were out of the country. I greatly appreciated the speed that this was resolved. The property was an excellent base for exploring. The town of Looe was very charming, full of quaint shops and restaurants. I would certainly stay at the property again. Very reasonably priced, superbly equipped and superbly located.

If you're looking for a peaceful spot with beautiful coastal walks then this certainly fits the bill. A couple of good pubs and a descent café all within walking distance, Perfect !!

Great friendly local pub, gave me a cake with candle for birthday - what more do you want. Warm, out of the world views, beautiful warn days and spectacular windy wet nights - I just love this. All cosy inside. You can not do better.
