Welcome to Looe & Polperro has fast become the go-to website for those planning a visit to, or stay in, SE Cornwall.

With advertising options starting at just £15 per year, it’s a great place to showcase your business to our many and varied visitors…. and, for 2024.

We are also pledging £250 (each) to a number of key local events (inc. the Polperro Festival, Bonfire Fireworks & Christmas Lights; the Looe NYE Fireworks & Looe Weekender) –  as well as launching two new events – On The Water Week and Dine Out Week.

The site is completely self-funded & independent too. Not 1p of tax payers money has been used to create & run the site – the small advertising fees help to maintain & develop the site and the social media pages.

By The Numbers
475,000+ Unique Visitors Since Launch
22,500+ Social Media Followers & Still Growing
500,000+ Active social media Engagements a month

We use Google Analytics and Hotjar software on the site to track our statistics and Facebook’s business tools to track our social media reach & engagements.

Our Aim

The site has a singular aim, to promote Looe, Polperro and the wider SE Cornwall community, as a fantastic place to visit, stay, shop, eat, drink, explore & get married!

Whilst the site’s focus is upon Looe, Polperro and the surrounding communities; we welcome businesses from the wider SE Cornwall area … 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 us.

Welcome to Looe Map

It is our belief, that the more variety of accommodation, eateries, shops, things to see, do & explore; helps illustrate (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.

Always on Point!

As you will see, we do not have any third party advertising, we direct all visitors to the local businesses listed. There is no set up fee nor any membership fee and no commission charged to either the business nor customer/guest.

The Coddy Shack are pleased to be supporting the Welcome to Looe & Polperro website which provides a positive & professional promotion for our part of Cornwall
