Looe is a beautiful ancient fishing village with an intriguing history, home to just over five thousand people, it's situated in South East Cornwall only twenty miles from the city of Plymouth. It's split in two halves with East and West Looe joined by a seven arched bridge that spans across the Looe River, and the South West Coastal Path passes through the village on it's 630 mile journey. The jumble of houses rise against a steep sided valley, with the remains of a Hill Fort set high on a hill above East Looe which dates back thousands of years. History weaves around the narrow winding streets where buildings are a legacy from a different age, the interesting shops play host to seekers of something special, whilst the restaurants tempt visitors with the catch of the day. Looe played an important part in ship building and the export of Tin and Granite in the past, although today sees colourful pleasure boats reflected in the water in the picturesque harbour, and the Fishing Fleet venturing out ever hopeful of that mouth watering catch of Pilchards and Crab. Sugar soft sandy beaches gently curve, and hidden coves entwine with tails of smugglers who landed their contraband on St Georges Island that lies off the western shore.
