Welcome to Looe & Polperro is a completely independent website with the sole aim of promoting the two iconic Cornish seaside destinations as great places to visit, stay, shop, eat, drink & explore.
The site has been created & narrated by myself, Peter Friend, who grew up in Looe. My family have worked either in the fishing or tourism sectors for generations; creating the site is my way of giving something back to the community I hold dear to my heart.
Since it’s launch at the end of July 2020, the site has been explored by over 30,000 people.
With tourism the main economy of both Looe & Polperro, and one that has been significantly impacted by Covid19, we want to showcase and promote:
Accommodation – from B&Bs to Yurts, Hotels to Self Catering… there is a wonderful array of great places to stay for singles, couples and families;
Shopping – from boutique Cornish crafts to essential holiday supplies; clothing to antiques.. you can shop till you drop as you wander the streets & lanes;
Eating & Drinking – from the finest fresh fish, to the humble pasty; wine bars, to pubs dating back over 500 years – there’s something for all tastes when your searching for a perfect place to eat & drink;
Things to See & Do – from lazy sunny days on local beaches, to exploring local attractions; enjoying stunning coastal vistas, to taking part in adventure sports – what will you choose to do during your time in the area?
Whether you’re visiting for the day, a short break or a week’s holiday, we welcome you to Looe & Polperro and hope that you have a wonderful time with us here in SE Cornwall.
In the spring of 2021, the site will be expanded to include new pages on Living in Looe & Polperro and also a What’s On section for events & activities taking place in both locations… there will also be a section dedicated to Made in Looe & Polperro – so please come back and visit us regularly as the site grows!
