Property code: PC041

A traditional reverse level cottage in the traditional fishing village of Polruan. Ideally located to explore the coast and attractions this area has to offer.

Positioned in the heart of this traditional fishing village with beach, shop and pub within easy walking distance, an ideal spot to sit and watch the world go by. Take the passenger ferry which offers a service every fifteen minutes over to Fowey, offering further shops, pubs and restaurants. Head further afield and visit the National Trust’s Lanhydrock, with Victorian house, woodland and riverside paths to explore. For outdoor enthusiasts there is access onto the South West Coast Path and easily accessible is Cardinham Woods with its waymarked trails through scenic woodland. For family days out visit the Eden Project, Hangloose Adventures and Porfell Wildlife Park.

Step into this reverse level property where the small hallway greets you, a door leads to a bathroom with WC and also cleverly houses a washer/dryer. Also on this floor is the twin bedroom where you can enjoy river glimpses as you sit up in bed. Heading up the open staircase into the lounge/kitchen/dining area where there is arguably one of the best views in Polruan. You will find it hard to pull yourself away from this central focus of the room with the ever changing view of the river. A final staircase leads up to the master double bedroom with en-suite shower room with WC and also enjoys the mesmerising view.

Heading outside to the front of the property is very small terrace, but is the ideal spot for an early evening glass of wine in the sunshine.

  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Polruan do not have private parking. However, there is a large pay and display carpark at the top of the village.

Beautiful location, don't worry about missing gym sessions as anywhere in Polruan means you exercise every day in the beautiful Cornish air. Hall walk on doorstep round to Sam's (or other excellent outlets) for lunch and back on ferry to sit looking at the busy estuary from your lounge 6*s. Shop has all essentials including great local Asparagus (iRead moren season) so please don't get a supermarket delivery (you do that every week, be brave). Fish and chips at The Russel, crab sandwiches at 'Jam First' Hide

We had a lovely time staying in Midships! The location is perfect and the view is incredible. The cottage was warm and cosy and provided everything we needed. We would definitely stay again when in Polruan.

Bueatiful location with excellent views over the harbour and across to Fowey. The only downfall is that there is no parking near the property and to unload/load luggage a bit of a task as you cant always drive to the end of the road as cars are parked there. So you have to carry luggage all the way to car park which is situated at the top of a veryRead more steep hill. Hide

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.
