The seaside town of Looe keeps visitors entertained all year round whilst still retaining a working fishing port. Stand on the quayside in the evening and watch the boats return before dining on fresh fish in a local restaurant. The town prides itself on it's fresh fish, and be it award winning fish and chips near the river or gourmet menus in smart restaurants overlooking the harbour, you know you won't be dissapointed.
To work all that food off, Looe is a great place for walking. The South West Coast Path passes through the town, plus there are countless walks in the beautiful countryside, or along the two rivers that flow inland.
For children, a safe sandy beach with rockpools beside it is all they need. Hours of free fun, and if they want to take after mummy and daddy and go fishing, then there's always crabbing from the quayside.
Here's a great little video about Looe from Visit Cornwall
