Tucked down winding lanes for which Cornwall is so well known, yet within five miles of the local beach at Talland Bay, is Higher Pendriffey Barn. This supersized, solid barn conversion has retained the original beams and stone walls, and therefore has a rather rustic feel to it. It provides an excellent space for two or even three families, or groups of friends to enjoy together. From its vast open plan living space to its large flat garden, it really does provide a great sociable space for all ages to appreciate. Higher Pendriffey is functionally furnished, but offers excellent value for money to those searching for a large property to make happy memories all together. This owner also offers low occupancy discounts to smaller parties. Please note: If taking advantage of a small party discount please be aware that unless you specify otherwise, the bedrooms made up will be the master family room, the double bedroom and the single bedroom. If you require additional bedrooms charges will apply (call for details).

We had a great morning at Polmartin riding school. The staff were lovely and the horses clearly are lovingly looked after. We even got a postcard of our horses to take home as a souvenir, perfect for my horse mad 10 year old. We will be coming again!
Porfell Wildlife Park
Cornwall’s biggest exotic animal sanctuary, Porfell Wildlife Park is a family attraction close to Looe, which has been running since 1989. It plays home to more than 250 animals from around the world, who have found their way to the sanctuary through neglect, injury, illegal importation or simply because they weren’t wanted. It’s a chance to get up close to wildlife, feed the animals, touch them and learn all about the natural world. There are woodland walks, a children’s farm, a café, a Maasai village, and you can meet or even adopt the animals that you see. Opening hours vary, so keep an eye on the website, and prices start at £9.50 for adults and £6.50 for children.

What a great place to visit, everyone really cared about what they were doing here. Highly recommend a visit to anyone
Looe Valley Railway Line
Linking the bustling market town of Liskeard and the picturesque fishing port of Looe, the Looe Valley Railway Line takes you on a journey through an abundance of landscapes from heavily wooded valleys teaming with wildlife to glorious estuary views as the river meets the sea. See the river full of wading birds such as Litte egrets, Grey herons, Oystercatchers and Curlews, before stopping in Looe to explore the beaches, restaurants, shops and pubs. Take a peek at their online journey planner for prices and timetables. Dogs go free (up to two dogs per person).

Lovely little train ride alive the river, worth while. Recommend travelling to Lisgard and getting a return to Looe, much cheaper to park that way!
a lovely short train ride through lovely scenery. Liskeard was an interesting little town to potter in for two or three hours
Polperro Model Village
An utterly charming day out for the family, Polperro Model Village and Land of Legend is two attractions in one. The village is, quite literally, the coastal town in miniature and has been around for more than 60 years, surviving both fire and floods – so don’t underestimate the strength of these little guys. Meanwhile, Land of Legend is your chance to explore Cornish folklore, derived from tales of pirates and smugglers who thrived in and around Cornwall from the early modern period through to the 19th century. It is a unique show of lights, sound and animation. The site also houses a model railway, and prices are £3 for adults and £2 for children, open daily from Easter to October.

Good attraction for young children rather than older children and adults. The miniature village and Land of Legend are charming (though perhaps a little 'worn' by modern standards). There is an interesting audio/visual on the Polperro floods of 1976 and 1993 and a separate small model railway.
In The Warren overlooking the harbour, the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing houses a collection of exhibits and 19th century photographs that date back to a time when both smuggling and fishing thrived in Polperro. It brings to life the little village’s beautiful history and the lives of the people who lived there, having depended on fishing for generations and been home to no less than three factories close by at one point. A delightful opportunity for children and adults alike to learn about local history in this little Cornish village, entry is £1.75 for adults and 50p for children.

I love a bit of local history and if your like minded, you'll enjoy this place. lots of information on the local boats and fishermen. it would take you a while to read it all.
Well worth visiting to get a feel and understanding of how the once thriving community of Polperro used to be in former pilchard fishing (and smuggling) days. The old photos and exhibits transport you back to a very different world (though adults will undoubtedly find the museum more interesting than small children).
This museum is packed with interesting facts and some great photos, so even though small we spent a good hour there. Definitely worth a visit to learn more on the local history (including about the more recent floods and storms), fishy facts and smuggling tales!
A small, quiet beach between Looe and Polperro, Talland Bay actually comprises two beaches, one of which has sand both at low and high tide and is good for swimming all the time, while the other is less sandy and is easiest to swim from at high tide. There is a ramp for launching boats from the main beach and there are lots of small coves and tidal pools to swim in as well, so it’s a delightful area to explore in the water. Parking is limited, but there is a small, free car park by the beach and paid parking at The Beach Café, all of which provide easy access to the sand. Thanks to the nearby café, visitors can also benefit from the accompanying facilities, on-site shop, and tuck into Roskillys Cornish Ice-Cream as well.

A lovely place to walk too on the way to Looe. Hard work back up the hill to polperro, bit it's worth it!
The coastal walk from Polperro to Talland Bay is outstanding. As both are scenic, (and Talland Bay benefits from an excellent cafe and free toilets), it makes for an excellent morning or afternoon trip in good weather.
Lovely beach,beautiful walk from Polperro. Dogs requested to be kept on leads (which I suppose is preferable to a ban!). Families seem to use this beach alot.
An interesting beach at low tide and lovely views.
Brilliant. Bit seaweedy. Wear beach shoes incase of weever fish stings.
Great beach pet friendly beach with rock pools etc for the dogs to explore
In South East Cornwall, Polperro is widely thought to be one of the area’s most picturesque fishing villages. Brimming with whitewashed cottages all the way down the harbour, the beach sits in a sheltered position under the cliffs, only visible at low tide and close to the harbour. Unsurprisingly, it’s a popular destination and can get busy in the summer months. Dogs are not permitted at the beach during peak season, from Easter to October, and while parking in the village itself is all but impossible, but there’s a large car park about a mile up the valley with a regular shuttle service going up and down the hill.

Small but lovely
Beautiful beach if you love beach combing.
Easy access, dog ok
We visited Polperro harbour/beach with our springer spaniel and although the write-up says no dogs allowed, they are allowed, just on a lead between 10am and 6pm, although beach is small, the sea is safe to swim in and not full of huge rocks, lovely ????
Lovely clean small beach.
Polperro is a magic place. It is so pretty with its winding streets and old cottages and the harbour with its fishing boats. The residents are so friendly and welcoming and there’s a wide choice of restaurants and cafes. I particularly recommend Michelle’s for fantastic food and a real welcome. As a woman on my own I dined there, as elsewhere, with no feeling of awkwardness. Breakfast at the House on the Props just unbeatable! Spring is one of the best times to visit for the wonderful coastal walks and the masses of wild flowers. When you visit, think about the parking situation before you go as it needs organising, but many rentable cottages have spaces provided in the main car park and PauI who runs a little motorised transport system for luggage is very helpful and reliable. I am one of the thousands of people who just love Polperro and every time I visit feel a great reluctance to leave.
Enjoyed the harbour etc and all the shops but had dogs so did not visit the beach but a beautiful setting.
really lovely, a must visit desination.
In East Looe, the beach sits directly in front of the old town, sheltered by the Banjo Pier and overlooked from the east by the hillside of Mount Ararat. A good family beach that has something for everyone, at low tide the sandy location is safe for swimming although it’s recommended you steer clear of the river mouth beyond the pier. The beach backs on to a seafront walkway which runs its length all the way to Second Beach to the east, where it tends to be less busy and it’s good for snorkeling. As it’s in the centre of the town there are lots of facilities and cafes nearby, but in the summer it’s a very popular spot and parking can be tricky, with traffic prohibited during these months, so be prepared for a bit of a walk.

Perfect for the children but beware of seagulls. We always take a beach tent so children can safely enjoy their food and ice cream!
Lovely beach suitable for everyone
A wonderful place to sit relax eat an ICECREAM or a pastie, if the seagulls will let you! Perfect beach x
You cannot fail to love Looe beach, early morning, during the day or for and evening stroll. A super clean beach.
Lovely sandy beach. No dogs allowed but there is a small cove at the far end which allows dogs to enjoy their holiday too with a dip in The English Channel.
Looe beach and seafront is cleaned every day (in season?) and looks good. A joy to sit and watch the sea and people passing by.
Really good! Good sand and sea. Activities for the kids too. Difficult to get to cos no parking nearby.
Lovely beach and even when it was busy didn't feel overcrowded
Half a mile west of Looe, stretching along the coast, Hannafore Beach is a sandy, shingle bay with a rocky reef and views of St George’s Island. At low tide it’s brimming with rock pools, making it fun and games for the whole family to enjoy, and it’s a wonderful sun trap in summer months thanks to its south east facing position. Because of its location over the river, the beach never really becomes too busy, but equally there aren’t any facilities nearby. It’s popular with dog walkers as it’s amongst the few dog-friendly beaches in the area, and having explored you can extend your excursion to a stroll along the promenade or a potter around the coast path to the wonderfully scenic Talland Bay. There is roadside parking along the sea front above the beach, but it can be difficult to find a space. Alternatively, there is a large car park in West Looe, around 10 minutes away on foot.

Lovely for the dogs!
Really nice beach and walk
An interesting beach, but beware the incoming tide !
Great beach. Good view of looe island. Loads of shells to collect. Lots of dog walkers tho!
One of the many dog friendly beaches we visited lovely coastal walks to Talland Bay the nature reserve island is very interesting great refreshments available and not forgetting the free parking available all day which is very useful.
A small and pleasant grey sand beach with rocks exposed at low tide, Plaidy Beach is simply a nice place to visit and take in the scenery. There aren’t any facilities, and there’s no parking nearby so it’s one to reach on foot. There’s a slipway to the beach, but you will have to access it by walking along the coast path, parking at Millendreath or Looe and it’s worth keeping in mind that it’s quite steep from both directions. Millendreath is closer and the walk should take around 20 minutes. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round, so it’s a charming place to take them for a walk while you’re in the area.

Great to walk to at low tide on the beach or at high tide via the footpath. Great dog friendly beach.
