A comfortable cottage. I recommend the bakery around the corner. I also recommend the Hall Walk which starts around the corner.

Lovely cottage very near the harbour, lovely location only downside as with anywhere in Polruan is the walk up a very steep hill to park. However if you can manage this, you can enjoy the very picturesque views along the way. From the cottage front bedroom window you have lovely views, even upon waking in the super comfy bed. The cottage was very cRead morelean and well equipped for self catering, there is a small contained garden at the top of some steep steps. Hide

Anybody driving has to park in the main car park which is at the top of the hill. Not suitable for the elderly and disabled or even those with respiratory conditions such as asthma.

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.
