Delightful character cottage nestling at the front of the idyllic fishing village of Polruan overlooking the estuary which provides the perfect romantic retreat.

Perfectly situated overlooking the River Fowey just a stone’s throw from the quayside, beach, pubs and village amenities. For a lovely day out hop on the passenger ferry to Fowey and enjoy the independent shops and restaurants on offer or step out onto the beautiful Hall Walk to Bodinnick passing Riverside, Daphne Du Maurier’s home or follow the South West Coast Path to Lantic Bay or Lansallos Beach. Further afield there are plenty of places to visit and things to do, why not visit the tall ships at Charlestown, take the brewery tour in St Austell or visit the Eden project and/or the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Also, for those interested in stately homes why not visit Lanhydrock in Bodmin.

Step inside from the delightful chimney pot terraced street and hang up your outer-wear. Head into the beautifully furnished lounge with Danish-style armchairs and a comfortable sofa. Relax in front of the wood-burner after a day exploring and watch your favourite film on the Smart TV and Bluetooth speaker. Unwind and read a book or play one of many board games. Two steps lead into the stunning kitchen diner with a gorgeous dining table and bespoke bench seating. The kitchen area has everything you need with an electric oven and hob, coffee machine, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and slimline dishwasher. Two steps up lead to the utility area with a washing machine and a rear door for access. Heading upstairs, the wonderfully cosy king-size bedroom is incredibly spacious with a window to watch the ever-changing river towards Fowey. From the landing, you’ll find the bathroom with a shower over bath and WC so enjoy an evening soak after a long day exploring the endless walks from your doorstep. 

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

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
