We are just 1 mile along the coast path to the pretty fishing port of Looe. Take a glass bottomed boat around Looe Island or weather permitting land on the island for 2 hours....nature lovers paradise. Try deep sea fishing or crabbing from the jetty.
Pretty fishing villiage of Polperro is 5 miles along the coast from Looe. There is a coast path for the more energetic taking in the panoramic views of the coast along the way. By car, the village is so tiny, you park in the car park inland and walk past the quaint fisherman's cottages as the roads are too small for tourists cars! A must see place.
Otherwise known as Looe Island. This nature lovers paradise is owned and managed by the Cornwall wildlife Trust. Occasional landings are allowed where you can browse the Island, have a picnic and study the wildlife, on land and in the sea. We spent the best 2 hours of our holiday in April, being the first visitors of the year for 2013. We saw cormorants, black backed gulls and oyster catchers nesting. Seals including blind in one eye, Dutchess, Hebrideane sheep and much more.
Only 25 minutes drive from Looe. Well worth a visit. Allow a day, much is outside. Take a picnic if on a budget. Pay full entry price once and get in free for a year!
Fowey is siuated on the estuary where the river Fowey joins the sea. Really pretty place where you can take in the river views while eating at the riverside restaurants and cafes. Walk further away from the town to fnd the pretty coves like the one above.
Bodmin Moor and the Hurlers stone circle is a short car journey from Millendreath. Car parks are dotted around the moors, then you can walk as far as you wish. Stunning scenery. Wild ponies on the moors which do keep their distance but are beautiful to see.
