A spacious property overlooking the Fowey Estuary, offers a delightful retreat in the quaint village of Polruan.

This cottage is situated in the historical village of Polruan with its many meandering streets. In the village there is Crumpets the tea room, a village shop, two pubs and a working boat yard, which are all a few minutes walk away from the cottage. The village dates back to the 1300s and is the perfect place to unwind and watch the boats come and go in the harbour. Take the passenger ferry over to Fowey and discover some of its hidden gems including Readymoney Beach and St Catherine’s Castle along with its many pubs and restaurants, and a selection of independent shops. Alternatively, there are plenty of boat trips to view South Cornwall from a different perspective. For children, there are a range of activities nearby to indulge in such as Woody’s Mountain Bike park, the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens.

The property is approached through a porch with storage space for walking boots and coats. The large windows and French doors have been designed to maximise the natural light and the estuary views from the open plan lounge, dining area and excellently equipped kitchen.

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.
