This charming and spacious stone-built cottage is set over three floors with panoramic views of the harbour from the top floor and close to the water.

Polruan is an ancient fishing village famous for its boat building heritage. Perfectly positioned on the Fowey river estuary, which is a thriving centre for fishing, seafaring, shipbuilding and agriculture. This remoteness gives the area an unspoilt charm with its narrow streets and alleyways where flights of slate steps twist between the houses. There are two village pubs and a passenger ferry that will take you across to Fowey. Further afield there are plenty of places to visit and things to do, why not visit the tall ships at Charlestown, take the brewery tour in St Austell or visit the Eden project and/or the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Also for those interested in stately homes why not visit Lanhydrock near Bodmin.

Enter on the ground level into the lounge/kitchen/diner. The kitchen area comes well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and the dining area can seat up to six people. Leading onto the lounge area there is a Smart TV/DVD and a sofa bed. Leading off the lounge area is also a separate WC. Heading up the stairs to the first floor, in the eaves of the property is the second lounge and study with stunning panoramic views over the harbour, relax and take in all that the view has to offer. Down on the lower ground floor there are two bedrooms and the shower room with double shower and WC. The bedrooms consist of one double bedroom and one single bedroom.

Outside consists of a small patio area with table and chairs to enjoy a glass of wine or alfresco dining. Parking is available in the public car park nearby, charges apply.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Many of the amenities, ferries and cottages in Polruan are accessed via steps some of which can be steep. Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • There are many small winding streets 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.

Great location made a good base. Nice house with amazing views from the top floor.

Reviewed by Kath 11th May 2019

The cottage was very clean and really comfortable and really well equipped. The views from the top floor were beautiful. We had good weather and a wonderful week. We weren't too happy about reversing down the very steep bit of road to offload our gear and the car park was a bit of a hike which took the cream off our stay. Obviously this cannot be aRead morevoided. The two Inns in the village served excellent food. We wouldn't go again simply because we can't park near the property. Hide

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.
