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.

Places to Visit Near Looe

There are quite a few residents of Looe who will tell you that they came here on holiday and never left. It's a lovely town with loads to do. But it's also a great launch pad for discovering the rest of Cornwall. Within 10 minutes you can be on the A38 and away. So when you've 'done' Looe, here are a few ideas for exploring further afield...

Walks near Looe & South East Cornwall

We keep a booklet in the hotel listing walks around the Looe area. The coastal path is the most popular. This runs the entire coast of Cornwall, nearly 300 miles. A day trip walking either way to Polperro or Seaton is a must. One place well worth walking to on a nice day is The Cheese Ring at Minions. A short drive to the village then a short walk up to the stones. This is one of the highest points in Cornwall. Just a few miles from here, heading back towards Liskeard are Golitha falls. They are not quite Niagara, but a very pleasant stop off for some peace and quiet.

 

Antony 314

Antony House

Superb early 18th-century mansion set in parkland and fine gardens. Faced in silver-grey Pentewan stone and flanked by colonnaded wings of mellow brick, this classically beautiful house is a beguiling mixture of the formal and informal. Still the home of the Carew Pole family, it contains fine collections of paintings, furniture and textiles. The grounds border the Lynher estuary and include a formal garden with topiary, a knot garden, modern sculptures and the National Collection of Daylilies. Antony was used as the film set for Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton.

Lanhydrock 314

Lanhydrock House

Magnificent late Victorian country house with gardens and wooded estate. Lanhydrock is the perfect country house and estate, with the feel of a wealthy but unpretentious family home. After a devastating fire in 1881 the house was refurbished in the high-Victorian style, with the best in country-house design and planning, and the latest mod cons. The kitchens, nurseries and servants’ quarters offer a thrilling glimpse into life ‘below stairs’, while the luxurious family areas, elegant dining room and spacious bedrooms reveal the comforts of ‘upstairs’ living. Experience the heyday of the Agar-Robartes family, who made Lanhydrock their home, and discover how their fortunes changed during the First World War.

Coast 314

Walk the Coast Path

Looe is an ideal starting place for walking along the coastal path. Heading west, Polperro is about 5  miles. The walk is moderate, but there are some hills. Half way is Talland Bay, which has a couple of cafes. Our local “celebs” Richard and Judy live in Talland Bay. If you walk to the east the path will take you to Plaidy, then on to Seaton. Half way you will pass The Monkey Sanctuary, just inland from the coast path. At Seaton there is a beach, with cafes a pub and a restaurant. If you are still feeling strong a few miles further on is Downderry, where The Inn on The Shore serves great food and they have a terrace which overlooks the sea.
