This is a lovely, spacious, well-equipped, clean and comfortable apartment. Whilst there are no sea views, it's only a couple of minutes walk down to Crinnis Beach and the coastal path. Jan the housekeeper was very helpful and we appreciated the flowers, shortbread and drinks left for us. Highly recommended!

Lovely spacious apartment in a great location. Beautifully furnished and presented - everything of a very high standard. The reserved parking space and gated ideal - parking in this area can be difficult. For golfers - just a couple of minutes walk to Carlyon Bay course.

The flat is comfortable and was spotlessly clean. Well equipped too - just what we needed for a week away. Carlyon Bay is walkable (though its 20-25 minutes) from the restaurants of Charlestown. The flat itself is 10 minutes from the beach (and beach bar).

Location

Map
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.
