We were absolutely delighted to stay in this lovely house. It was clean, homely, beautifully accessorised & extremely generously equipped with everything we needed. Polruan was perhaps a bit quieter than we were expecting, especially out of season when the last ferry from Fowey was at 7pm (5pm Sunday), but the Lugger Inn and the Russell Inn were grRead moreeat so we made good use of them both. We stayed as a family of 6 adults and one small dog, and it was perfect for us. Would definitely book again! Hide

House was perfect for the eight adults, plenty of room and facilities, had a great time. We had wonderful weather so the gas BBQ was used every day. Helps to be physically fit, with all the walking up and down hills. Suggest pre-ordering deliveries of food, saves using the narrow lanes, also use the ferrys good fun and saves miles.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
