The front door opens into a cosy lounge/diner with TV/DVD and a wood burner.

  • There are many small winding streets in and around the village, that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Polruan do not have private parking. However, there is a large pay and display carpark at the top of the village.

A beautiful cottage, well appointed and a spectacular view across the estuary to Fowey.

Reviewed by Andrew 13th October 2018

Lovely cottage, just right for 2, has everything you need. Had to light the wood burner every night just because it was there! Very cosy. Sit and watch life in the estuary. Hop on the ferry over the Fowey but don't forget it ends earlier out of season! Parking probably a problem in high season. Shame the Russell Inn isn't more geared up for food.

Small property. Limited view from living room. No private outdoor space.

Very close to the centre of Polruan and with excellent views fo the harbour.

Reviewed by Shouvik 25th August 2018

Absolutely brilliant location! Steep walk up and down from the car park but a) car can be taken to a spot close to the property for loading/unloading and b) the location adds to the charm. Elders may find it a bit challenging but otherwise a fantastic property.

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.
