Caravan enthusiasts holidaying in Cornwall next month may wish to pack a loose fitting pair of trousers.

According to holiday site operator Parkdean, the Looe Festival by the Sea will provide a great opportunity for Brits to try some “grazing on the quay”, with daily tasting sessions from 11:00 BST.

The event, which takes place on July 10th and 11th, is set in the historic fishing port town of Looe and attracts food lovers from far and wide.

Some of the culinary delights on offer include oat-coated mackerel burgers, festival fishcakes and king prawn shooters.

Those who prefer their grub a little less fishy could opt for Cornish Orchards’ apple juices and ciders or Cornish strawberries dipped in chocolate.

Run by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the event also gives visitors the chance to experience life as a crew member aboard the Tamar lifeboat.

Parkdean suggested that those heading to the festival will find its Looe Bay Holiday Park an ideal base for the weekend.

Earlier this year, the company noted how Cornwall had been used as a location for filming a number of movies, including the recently released including the recently released Alice in Wonderland.
