Lovely, cosy character cottage on the water's edge minutes from two pubs and a foot passenger ferry to Fowey.

Fantastic little cottage, beautifully and tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, freshly painted and with the most amazing views from every window! Conveniently situated too, with only a short stroll to the local ferry, the 2 pubs and the 2 shops! And a great balcony too. Will definitely return!

This is a beautiful cottage in a perfect location. We fell in love with the village and the life on the water. We could not recommend this cottage more highly. We were reluctant to leave. It was as close to perfect you can get.

This was a perfect little cottage, well equipped and great views. Lots of reviews say about the steps down to the cottage but don't let that put you off, its not that bad and worth it.

We had a lovely stay at Salts Cottage. The location is perfect, really close to the water with the most amazing view over the river. The cottage has a really cosy feeling about it, and we didn't want to leave.

(For review section) The best-situated holiday cottage I have ever rented; well-equipped and very comfortable; wi-fi and phone signals excellent. Washer-drier tricky, but we're not used to them. [For info] It would be good to signal online that it is a shoes-off property, so that people take slippers. Plus add to directions "turn left on to St SaviRead moreour's Hill just after green bus-shelter"! We ended up down by the Russell! Hide

Salts Cottage is a fantastic place to be , could see my days out there. Comfortable, clean , well equipped and of course a stunning view from the balcony. I would say though if you are elderly or infirm this cottage is a non starter. There are 40 to 50 steps down to the cottage and the area has a lot of steep hills around the village . Having said Read morethat I would thoroughly recommend this property. Absolutely beautiful and relaxing property Hide

The instructions to get to Salts were bang-on. Follow them to the letter and then see how good your reversing a very narrow lane downhill skills really are!

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.
