This property suited our requirements an was a good base for walking locally. Ideal for a short stay as garden access is not easy and the level of comfort is not brilliant simply because the property is small. However we had a lovely time but if coming to the area again I would look for a slightly more trad country cottage property with a wood burnRead moreing stove etc. Hide

Beautiful location for walkers but not much else to do. To get out you definitely need a car

Reviewed by Susan 31st August 2019

The cottage was good value for money, but a little tired. Polruan is a very quiet village, the steep hill is a challenge, so no good for anyone with any disabilities, unless equipped with an electric scooter. All facilities, 2 pubs and 2 shops are at the foot of it, including the ferry to Fowey, which you need if you want anything else. Would recomRead moremend to people for walking or just wanting total escapism. Hide

We really liked the property and it was much more spacious than the pictures suggest. We liked the lounge upstairs with the view and cooler bedroom downstairs. Some of the furniture is a little dated and could be modernised. The town is lovely and quiet but only 1 pub was serving meals which limited the options. Great base to explore from, especialRead morely the coast path. Hide

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.
