Very comfortable clean bungalow and great location. There are no views from the property itself once inside. Back yard is fenced all the way round (good for privacy though) and front looks over the driveway. Good area to sit out by the duck pond, although the weather wasn't too good for us to do that. I did enjoy feeding the ducks. The cream tea prRead moreovided on our arrival was lovely! Recommend The New Inn at Cross for good food. Hide

A lovely cottage with friendly hosts, Paul and Trudy. Its well equipped and spotlessly clean. Remote enough to be relaxing, but close enough to able to get out to see lots of places in a beautiful part of the country. Good location for getting out on some great walks

This delightful property is in an idyllic situation and the owners have put much thought into providing the opportunity for a most enjoyable stay even down to a welcoming cream tea. There are plenty of places to visit within a short drive and an excellent village pub which serves good food.

As from the above and also in future I think all cottages should state bed size and what the unit is furnished with. For the local surround and amenities perfect setup safe secure and lots of fresh air.

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.
