A traditional cottage in the heart of the ancient fishing village of Polruan, with access to all Cornwall has to offer, and pretty Fowey with its pubs and restaurants a short ferry ride away.
The village itself has a small shop and a couple of pubs which serve food. There is a ferry service to Fowey which runs every 15 minutes, giving access to further shops, restaurants and pubs. There is only one road into Polruan, which ends by the quay close to the tidal beach, making the village a quiet and peaceful destination to retreat to. It is ideally situated for visiting attractions such as The Eden Project or Ferryside, where Daphne Du Maurier wrote her first novel. The property also offers easy access to the South West Coast Path.
Make your way up the stone steps into the entrance hall, hang up your hats and coats, and move into the lounge/diner. This very grand, colourful and light room is steeped in character and is the perfect place to relax, watch the TV and put your feet up in front of the wood burner after a long day in the sea air. There is plenty of room to sit and eat at the dining table, plus lots of space to entertain. Heading back out to the main hallway you will come to the well-equipped, galley-style kitchen complete with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer. You can access the garden from the kitchen’s back door. Heading upstairs, you have two bedrooms to choose from, a spacious twin room and a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into twins on request). This main bedroom is very light and spacious and offers fabulous views of the River Fowey. Back along the hall is the bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC, and a utility area housing a washer/dryer.
Outside there’s an enclosed sunny courtyard for dining alfresco – or for just sitting back and relaxing! Polruan has many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties do not have private parking. However, there is a large pay and display car park at the top of the village.
