The nearby town of Fowey can be reached by the passenger ferry and it is a delight to wander around the shops, delicatessens, restaurants and cafes. Other attractions in the area include the world-famous Eden Project, the historic port of Charlestown and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

There is also a separate WC off the kitchen. A glazed door leads you to the lounge where you can relax after a busy day exploring and watch a movie on the TV/DVD. Heading upstairs to the first floor you will find two bedrooms, a spacious king with river views and a cosy twin over looking the courtyard.

Everything was very clean, the double bed was comfy and it had all the equipment we needed really! Id happily recommend the property to my friends and family :) Dont expect all bells and whistles, its quite simple but it its more than all you need for a comfortable stay. The ferry to Fowey was a delight but it does stack up in price if you go everyRead more day, but in our minds it was all part of the fun of the cottage. Two pubs, a bakers, shop and tea rooms all within a matter of a few footsteps! Hide

Lovely comfortable cottage with good sized kitchen diner and good sized double and twin bedrooms. Located in the village at the bottom of a very steep hill. Car parking at the top of the village and not for anyone with walking or mobility issues. Tiny outside space shared with other cottage, with only small bistro table and 2 chairs. Without ferry Read moreto Fowey the village would feel very claustrophobic. Roads into the village are single track for several miles with limited passing spaces. Hide

Clean modern property, limited on kitchen cooking equipment but adequate if you eat out lots. Location is perfect for close to harbour but very noisy in early morning from 6am. Parking should be explained better. Very steep hill to park car and costs 25 for week.

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.
