Also

Polperro is just around the corner it's a quaint little fishing village - well worth a visit.

The Eden Project is about 23 miles away (around an hours drive) check out:-

Hi there. I live in Looe so can recommend some great places to eat. Morrells, Mawgans, The Old Sail Loft and Trawlers are all great for something special. Ocean and Earth is a great for during the day too.

Hope you have a great stay.

Hi there

Definately take a hop to Polperro for a couple of hours then maybe drive through the lanes to Bodinnick and take the little car ferry across to Fowey. Once in Fowey, it's not far to Heligan or to Eden. Try a call in at Charlestown as well where you will find square rigger sail ships being overhauled in the tiny harbour.

I will be staying at Kiligarth Manor in a couple of weeks. What places of interest is there for an 11 year old and 13 year old. Also is there a supermarket in a nearby town to get Groceries?

Hi there

Killigarth Manor sits above the village - you bear left by the phone box just before you start to drop down the hill into Polperro. You can either drive/bus to Looe where there are loads of shops including a Somerfield or go down into Polperro where there is a general store, bakery, butchers and so on.

I just want to add that the Squid Ink is a new restaurant in Looe. We went there the other night- very upmarket and not cheap but good quality food and friendly staff.

Having just come back from Looe, I would recommend:

a boat trip up the river;

taking the (40p) ferry from East to West Looe;

eating at Barclay House Hotel (or just go for a drink on the veranda);

Sara's pasties;

taking the bus;

taking the train to Liskeard (for the train journey);

a good coastal walk;

If you cant make Polperro and Fowey, go to Fowey! You can drive right into Polruan, opposite Fowey and take the ferry; better than driving to Fowey..if the weather is good, head for the beach cove in Fowey - there is a floating platform you can swim out to.
