If you can pull yourself away from the village there is so much to see and do from the beautiful coastal path to Lantic Bay then onto Polperro or even Bodinnick where you can catch the ferry back to Fowey and then Polruan. There is always something going on throughout the year from the Fowey regatta to Polruan carnival.

There is also double sofa bed in this room suitable for two extra guests if required.

There is no outside space at the property, however, the cottage is within paces from the beach and village quay. The property does not have any parking but there is a drop off point 100 yards from the property and there are nearby car parks where weekly tickets can be purchased.

  • Many of the amenities and cottages in Polruan are accessed via slopes / 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 about a 5-8 minute walk.

Loading and unloading the car alone could have been a little awkward ( as I was , my son having had to return to London mid week). I would have clogged up the village for quite some time tooing and froing.Fortunately a helpful local picked me up outside and took me, luggage and fishing equipment up to the car park. If you know of someone willing toRead more do this for your guests ( for a small fee) it would be really helpful for those alone or not so able bodied. Hide

Fantastic little gem. Loved the sea views, the cottage had everything you could possibly want. It was lovely and cosy and felt a real home from home. The passenger ferry over to Fowey was great and we used the local bus to go to Looe and Polperro. The car parking spaces are quite limited on the quay and the roads are narrow and steep; for these reaRead moresons only, if you aren't a confident driver or you're unable to hill walk then Polruan might not suit you.

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.
