Beautiful location above Polperro with magnificent views which can be enjoyed from the property's balcony. Very friendly owners. Facilities are good but the under-the-counter frig' might be a little small for a week's catering. The downstairs boiler room with washing machine is a useful area for drying wet clothes and boots.

Amazing stay in a beautiful setting. The cottage is lovely with thick walls and lovely views. quiet and peaceful with very little light pollution which is great for star gazing on a clear night, either from the balcony or the little garden. Very friendly hosts, we will definitely stay here again. It was a shame we couldn't stay for a full week.

We had a delightful and relaxing long-weekend in this lovely converted farm building. Warm and comfortable despite the wild weather and with super views over the valley from the upper floor living area.

Beautiful little cottage with views from the balcony overlooking fields and a distant view of the sea. The owners were very friendly. A lovely relaxing little place to spend our holiday. Would I book here again - well personally I like to vary the changes and try somewhere different so possibly not. Also, although the cottage was located in a quietRead more area, the nearest town of Polperro was very busy and I think next time I would go for somewhere a little more remote. Hide

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.
