Polruan is a lovely village with a well stocked store, bakery, cafe & two great pubs. Fabulous location with great views across to Fowey. The cottage is small but perfectly formed, lovely & warm, well equipped kitchen. Upstairs just needs a little TLC. Recommended. Would book again.

Overall, it's a nice little cottage in a prime location. The Polruan and Fowey (across the harbour) are great villages! Also, the local residents are very friendly and helpful. I'd defo recommend this cottage. Just look at the price as we paid a rather steep price (mid season tough, but as I've learned afterwards, we overpaid)

Bosuns is a comfortable cottage, best suited to active people owing to Cosy , warm and very comfortable. Beautiful views , but do any grocery shopping before you go, not much choice in the local shop.

Great views of Fowey and the estuary, especially from the bedroom window. Surprisingly spacious cottage and well equipped. The kitchen is very small but usable, just mind your head when going through the doorway. Polruan is not a plastic bucket and spade kind of place and is fairly quiet. Though the cottage is on a gently sloping street Polruan is Read morebuilt on a steep hill. You'll get a good workout. Loved it. Hide

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.
