View from Millendreath Beach over to Looe

Millendreath and Looe



A small inlet with a sandy, private beach, 1.5 miles from the main town of Looe to the West.
There are coastal walks with breathtaking views in every direction; woodland walks starting from your door and picnic areas in scenic locations. Buzzards are often circling above the trees keeping the noise from seagulls to a minimum! 

Millendreath is so secluded you may have difficulty finding it on a map, yet it is so close to some of the best known attractions in the West Country. Ideal base to explore Cornwall, 8 mins from A38.

Millendreath has a jetty and numerous rock pools and crevices. At low tide you can walk along the beach-front, or take a 20 minute coastal path walk or 5 minute drive to Looe. When the tide goes out and both beaches are accessible you will always find a spot to just take in the tranquillity of Millendreath, away from the crowds.​ 

Woodland walks belonging to the site are available. Accessed to the rear of the valley. They extend beyond the valley and above the villas.

Sea Explorers UK: ​

A water sports company is operational on the beach front from April - September offering tuition, hiring out body boards, kayaks, paddle boards, wetsuits. Their expertise and advice enables even the most nervous to join in the fun. They also offer group kayak tours and private bookings out of season. (Sea and weather dependant)



The bustling, picturesque fishing town of Looe is situated on the spectacular South Cornwall Coast in a largely unspoilt area of the South West. It has an unpretentious charm and an excellent range of facilities and is only a mile from Millendreath.

The historic town has a wide range of restaurants and cafes, many of them on the quay, where you can sample the local fish and watch the sun go down over the river. Families love to fish for crabs from the quayside.

A variety of boats can be hired including a ferry or glass bottomed boat which will also take you around Looe Rock (St Georges island) The Sea Safari Rib is excellent, we saw many dolphins on this trip. Try a spot of fishing for yourself, deep sea shark, conger or mackerel are in the area. 

The coastline in this region is stunning and is accessible by the scenic Cornwall South Coast Path. You can walk to the neighbouring fishing village Polperro, (5 miles) where you will find a smaller version of Looe with its quaint working harbour, pedestrianised streets and fabulous gift shops, galleries, good selection of pubs and restaurants. There is ample parking in Looe.

Looe hosts a range of events including sailing regattas, a music festival,  carnival week and even a duck race! New Year at Looe is made really special with the whole town celebrating in fancy dress and fabulous fireworks at midnight off the beach. It is among the top 10 English destinations to be at New year!
