A lovely little cottage for 2. Quiet and peaceful with lovely views towards the harbour. We had a lovely week in Polruan, and would definitely stay again. Would recommend fish & chips at the Russell Inn, huge portions, and the Ferry trip to Mevagissey from Fowey spotting dolphins enroute was another must do. Polruan is a lovely quiet unspoilt corniRead moresh village, and the walk back up the hill everyday definitely improves your fitness! Hide

Had a fantastic stay in a superb location for views of the river Fowey. The downside was the access to the village which was by very narrow country roads from the A390 for about 12 miles. Also the phone signal in the village area could have been better, but the views from the property made up for this.

We had a lovely stay at Sea Cell, Polruan is a lovely area, the house was in a great location, not far from the car park, lots of local national trust walks. The house was spacious and comfortable, with an amazing view from the lounge across the harbour and to Fowey.

A cosy cottage in a lovely location. The cottage is small with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and living room. Fairly basic cottage (no wifi). The cottage is located short walk (down a steep hill) from the Polruan quayside, from where you can take a ferry across to Fowey. Ideally situated for walks along the South West coast path.

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.
