East Looe and West Looe originated as separate towns. They were what is called "planted boroughs" and first mention of them is in 1201.
The town towns were joined by an estuary bridge, the earliest in Cornwall, by 1411. The Illustrated Journeys of Celia Fiennes 1685 - c.1712 ,ed. Christopher Morris, London, 1982 records that she recorded the bridge as having 14 arches in 1698. The bridge was replaced in 1853 by a new one about a hundred yards further upstream.
The Guildhall is believed to have been built about 1500 and one house is dated 1555 and another 1632. The Golden Guinea restaurant is one of many ancient houses still in use today and whose interiors, in some cases, give more clues to their age than do the later exteriors which have disguised them.

Situated in a beautiful part of the country, Tencreek Holiday Park is set in glorious countryside with stunning views of the sea and excellent facilities just outside the Cornish seaside town of Looe and nearby fishing village of Polperro. So before the music starts each day why not take a walk around town or visit the beautiful bays in the area, with secluded coves and wide stretches of golden sand and crashing surf.
With accommodation for the weekend being just a short walk from the music you won’t need to worry about booking that taxi to take you home or to a hotel at the end of each night. Also parking is free for the weekend - so you don’t have to worry about where you leave your car. No need to search for food and drinks on the day either, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone's taste!
So whether you’re local to Cornwall, travelling from the other side of the country or overseas to be with us, you’ll only have to focus on the music and enjoying yourself.
