What a delightful cottage, in a beautiful part of the world. We had such a wonderful long weekend at Number 1, Blockley - The heart of Father Brown! The cottage has everything you need and incredibly clean. We very much appreciated the greeting basket with snacks and treats! Would highly recommend.

Lovely cosy and comfortable cottage in a great central location in this beautiful Cotswold village. The Blockley Cafe is wonderful with delicious cakes, coffee, and wonderful meals - just 3 minutes from the cottage! Plus the Village Shop has all you need including logs for the cosy wood burning stove. We loved the Blockley Village walks - guidebookRead more in cottage; the woodland walk; Broadway Tower, shops & cafe; and Batsford Arboretum. We hope to come back soon. Thank you! Hide

Location

Map
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.
