Known for its quintessentially summer climate, Cornwall is a haven for beach lovers. When you stay at Deerpark you’re only 20 minutes away from one of its most vibrant seaside resorts, East Looe Beach

Settled in front of a bustling seaside town and sheltered by the iconic Banjo Pier, East Looe Beach is an ideal family friendly beach with loads to offer. In fact, it's known as one of the busiest beaches in the area. 

Hire a few deckchairs and kick back with an ice cream and explore its abundance of independent shops. Keep mini explorers busy with afternoons filled with rockpooling, snorkelling and safe swimming. Then finish off your day by tucking into a traditional cornish pasty from one of the many local bakeries.
