As you drive in to East Looe...

...You'll see The Globe pub on the left and Looe Train Station on your right. The entrance to the hotel is immediately after the pub. However, the turn into the driveway is quite difficult from this direction, so continue along for 100 metres, then make a U-turn at the Texaco garage and approach the drive from the opposite direction. The hotel is at the top of the driveway.

A brief history of Cornwall (where our B&B is!)

Cornwall, or Kernow in the Cornish language is the most beautiful county in England.  The Cornish people are so proud to be Cornish that they think of Cornwall not as a county, but a seperate country. Indeed when asked about their ethnic background most Cornish people would write Cornish as opposed to English. 

Many people consider Cornwall as a Duchy, not a county and there are still laws mentioning this. Cornwall's boundary with England runs from Hartland in the north to Saltash on the southern coast and except for a few a sort stretch of land the county is cut off from the rest of England by rivers running to the north and the Tamar to the south.

Cornwall is not only famous as a holiday destination, but it also has an industrial past. Tin mining was once a thriving industry and the historic governing body which regulated the industry is know as The Cornish Stannary Parliament and it still exists to protect the Cornish people today. China clay has been mined in the St Austell area until very recently. Our most famous attraction The Eden Project was built in an old clay quarry Cornwall is surrounded by the English Channel on the south coast and the Atlantic Ocean to the west and north.

The south coast is more sheltered - although it can still be the victim of gales in the winter. The north coast is more rugged, indeed on some exposed parts of the north coast most of the trees grow at an angle having been buffeted by the winds.

Don't let our description of the wind put you off coming! Being on the southern tip of the UK, Cornwall experiences some of the best weather that the UK can offer. 

Fishing is a major industry in Cornwall, the main fish markets are in Plymouth and Newlyn, near Penzance. Looe has a fish market and the boats which land at Looe are day boats, which means their fish is fresh. The market at Looe sells fish to all of the top restaurants in the country.
