Stayed here for 7 nights in August 2021, four of us (2 adults, 2 children aged 5 & 8) and a dog. The cottage was perfect for us and a great location. Clean, tidy and modern and located just up the road from the quay.

Regular boats to Fowey were available for more restaurants and good walks available from the doorstep. Highly recommended. Hide

We had a fantastic week in the Fishermans Cottage in Polruan. The location is absolutely perfect. Once you have parked your car (25 , up the hill) you are treated by being away from traffic and have a beautiful view across the harbour. The 10 min ferry to Fowey means you have everything right there, but can also escape the tourists. The cottage itsRead moreelf is so nicely decorated. Its modern, clean and homely.

Wow I the views from this property really are like the pictures. We loved this cosy cottage. The walks from our door step were stunning. Very well equipped and the Cornish tea and wine in arrival made a lovely touch.

A lovely comfortable little cottage equipped with everything for an enjoyable stay including a welcome package. They even left out a dog towel and bowls. A short walk to the ferry to take you to and from Fowey.

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.
