A seaside retreat with a contemporary feel within a traditional grade II listed Cornish cottage. It is situated approximately 200yds from the quay and waterfront of Polruan.

Polruan is an ancient fishing village famous for its boat building heritage. Perfectly positioned on the Fowey river estuary, which is a thriving centre for fishing, seafaring, shipbuilding and agriculture. This remoteness gives the area an unspoilt charm with its narrow streets and alleyways where flights of slate steps twist between the houses. There are two village pubs and a passenger ferry that will take you across to Fowey. Further afield there are plenty of places to visit and things to do, why not visit the tall ships at Charlestown, take the brewery tour in St Austell or visit the Eden project and/or the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Also for those interested in stately homes why not visit Lanhydrock near Bodmin.

Enter the property into the lounge, which is light and airy with a cosy wood burner and leather sofas to relax and watch your favourite TV programme or watch a movie on the DVD. There is also and iPod docking station and CD player if you are more into your music. Heading through from the lounge to the kitchen/diner, which is contemporary in style and equipped with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge, just perfect to cook up a storm. The dining area can cater for four people. Leading from the kitchen to the back of the property there is a porch area, leading to an outside utility room, which is a great place to hang coats, wet suits and outdoor wear. Heading up the stairs from the kitchen to the first floor, will lead you to two of the bedrooms and a WC on the landing. There is the master bedroom with super-king-size bed and feature fireplace and  there is also a double bedroom with views out to the back of the property.  Leading up to the second floor, there is a double bedroom in the eaves of the property (with some restricted head height). You will also find the main bathroom on this floor its contemporary in style and has a separate shower, freestanding bath and WC

Heading outside the garden is accessed via a shared path and 5 stone steps, this gives the advantage of height and you are rewarded with magnificent views over the estuary to the popular seaside town of Fowey. The garden has been landscaped using beach pebbles, old timber sleepers and provides a large timber decked area with outdoor furniture to relax upon whether it's to view the yacht/boat activity on the estuary or simply enjoy the opportunity to live outdoors and hopefully spot the sun.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Kitchen tap broken on arrival. Tv didnt work properly. Made several calls and emails to sort. Then Wi-fi stopped working. House is tired. Outside area is up quite a few steps and didnt use it because of this.

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
