Launched on July 31st 2020, Welcome to Looe & Polperro has fast become the go-to website for those planning to visit or stay in SE Cornwall.
The site has one singular aim, promoting Looe, Polperro and the wider SE Cornwall community, as a fantastic place to visit, stay, shop, eat, drink & explore. In addition, the Living section aims to give the same positive approach for those living, or choosing to live, in the area.
From September ‘21, the site is expanding its geographical reach so that more local businesses from SE Cornwall may be included… so if you own, run or manage a business from Polruran in the west, to Torpoint in the east, we would love you to join the site.
It is our belief, that the more variety of accommodation, eateries, shops, things to see, do & explore: illustrates (to those looking where to holiday or visit within Cornwall) that our corner of Cornwall has so much on offer. This will then encourage both a longer duration of stay and a greater spend within our communities.
*we use Hotjar software on the site to track our statistics.
