Welcome to Looe & Polperro is a completely independent website with the sole aim of promoting the two iconic Cornish seaside destinations of Looe & Polperro, as well as the wider area of SE Cornwall, as great places to visit, stay, shop, eat, drink & explore.
The site has been created & curated 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 its launch at the end of July 2020, the site has been explored by over 65,000 people and our Facebook & Instagram pages have in excess of 6,500 followers….. making us the premier site for those planning a stay in, or visit to, SE Cornwall.
With tourism the main economy of our communities, 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;

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?
