Set in the centre of the village, a short walk to the Coal Wharf and boatyard,this cottage is an ideal base for exploring South Cornwall with its many delights and attractions.

Nestling on the beautiful south coast of Cornwall alongside the river Fowey you will find the unspoilt village of Poluran with its village shop, traditional cafe and local pub. From the quaint quayside take a relaxing trip on the passenger ferry to Fowey, explore the village whilst enjoying the shops, restaurants and bars. If you are able to 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.

Enter the property into an open-plan layout with lounge/kitchen/diner. In the lounge area relax in front of the wood burner and watch your favourite film on the TV/DVD. The kitchen area is well-equipped for making family meals and snacks, with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine. Heading up to the first-floor you will find two bedrooms, a king-size and a bunk room. Also on this floor is a shower room with shower and WC. The second floor is accessed by steep stairs where there is a second lounge with ample seating and two window seats to take advantage of the river views.

There is a small courtyard area with table and chairs and seating for two and a storage area, useful for bikes or canoes, and all those buckets and spades. The property does not have any parking but there are nearby car parks where weekly tickets can be purchased.

Great stay in a great cottage. Polruan was beautiful and much quieter than Fowey. View from the loft living room was stunning.

The cottage is in a brilliant spot in the village but parking is an issue. There are multiple steps to both front and back doors but once unloaded you dont need your car. Car park is a 10 min walk which is very steep. Polruan is perfect for a pint and has a village shop which sticks most thing. The ferry to Fowey is brilliant and Fowey has many barRead mores, shops and restaurants. Lovely walks and views. Hide

Lovely cosy cottage ... need to bear in mind that the ferry is required to get to Fowey without a long drive on narrow roads. Parking is a bit tricky!

Lovely cottage. Well positioned for central Polruan i.e. The harbour, the pubs, the two shops, the ferry to Fowey. The walk back to our car at the top of the village was a bit of a challenge, but we knew this before we booked. Miles of small roads to reach Polruan became a chore every time we travelled around Cornwall and meant 20-30 minute drive tRead moreo reach a good A road. Great views of the estuary from the top floor. Hide

A keysafe made it very easy to check in and out. Nicely decorated - especially lovely views of river from the gorgeous top room. Rest of the house a bit dark and musty (more lights in sitting room please!) but otherwise fine. Good shower! A lovely location - friendly locals and we used the ferry to Fowey a lot. But felt a bit cut off - we found theRead more very narrow lanes into Polruan quite a challenge and only supermarket nearly an hour away. Hide

This is a beautiful property, with loads of space. We spent most of our indoors time in the top floor den. With the peace and quiet, and fabulous views, it was a real retreat. You can park in the lane near the cottage to load/unload. Its a great base for walks and day trips, with the Fowey ferry a few minutes away (and visible from the top floor!).Read more A reasonable level of fitness is needed for the climb up to the car park if youre planning days out. Parking is 25 (cash) for 7 days. Hide

Directions to the cottage could be made simpler, 3 flight of steps not 3 steps, a bit confusing as there are 2 doors, nice location, parking in summer could be a problem, over all a pleasant stay and would return

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.
