The bathroom has a bath for a long soak after a day’s exploring, and a separate shower cubicle.

Lovely cosy but surprisingly spacious cottage well finished and located only a few steps from the local amenities. Polruan is a nice place but with limited facilities especially eating options if you prefer to eat out and of course quite hilly so only suitable for those who are able to cope with this aspect.

Lovely location but on a steep hill which could be problematic if you have mobility issues. Cottage itself was immaculately clean, very cosy and we were welcomed with a lovely greeting pack. We would not hesitate to book again if looking for another stay in Polruan.

A beautifully renovated cottage. Only about 5 houses up from the quay at Polruan. No parking outside in the very narrow steep street so a quick stop to throw luggage in and then park up in the car park. Dog friendly and practical with no carpet downstairs. Lovely touches like free slippers. Comfy and cosy. Good wifi and EE signal. O2 slightly weak.Read more Great location as near the ferry to Fowey, the Lugger Inn (good food), Jam First lovely little cafe and a shop and bakery opposite. Great weekend. Hide

Wonderful cottage in a perfect location! Cottage was warm, spotlessly clean and super comfortable. Rear terrace paved and fully enclosed - perfect to let the dog out without worries of escape! Only a few hundred yards away from passenger ferry to Fowey so nice not to need the car for every excursion. Will definitely re-visit!

Warm and cosy cottage with very comfortable beds. Prefect location in the heart of the village, a stone's throw from the village store and bakery, and close to lovely pub and the ferry to Fowey. Our dog loved it too! Highly recommended as a location and as a delightful property to stay in.

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.
