About
The Wooldown is an area of open space in East Looe. It is a beautiful piece of open countryside - an area of fields and hedgerows that has been miraculously preserved within the town. Situated high above East Looe’s town centre, it commands wonderful vistas over the sea, the coast and St.George’s Island. It is treasured by the local community as a wonderful place to walk, explore and to sit. It remains much as it was when farmland was secured for the enjoyment of the people of Looe. The fields and hedgerows are now being managed to encourage biodiversity. Working with Kernow Ecology, a local conservation consultancy, East Looe Town Trust has established two bee glades above the SW Coast Path, and a wild flower meadow in the Observatory field. Looe's beacon is on the crown of the hill and lit to mark national celebrations. Dog friendly and litter free'

A lovely quiet spot for easy wandering or just sitting and enjoying the view over to Looe Island and out to sea. You can cross this way to head to Polperro or just enjoy the space for it's own tranquility.

Thank goodness for places like this in our world. A natural area of grassland with an old canon and great views over the sea to Looe Island and the harbour.

We are so pleased that you enjoy the Wooldown area - and the amazing views. Our team are working hard to manage the area and conservation is very important to us - hence the wild flower meadow and the bee glades to encourage the endangered long horned bees. We hope you come back to enjoy the area again soon.

One of my favourite places in Looe. It's easily reached from the cost path and the town. You get a great view of Looe island.
