Fantastic property, great location. Property could have been cleaned to higher standard, for instance, the stairs were still dusty, cobwebs in living areas. Needs more cutlery, more cooking pans and pots required. However great house.

A stunning property with a stunning view which suited 10 adults - 5 couples. We really enjoyed our stay not a lot of amenities in Polruan although very quaint and so the short ferry trip needed for shops. We found we needed to travel for beaches via the car ferry at Boddinick.A very steep climb back to the property from the passenger ferry by foot Read more(definitely tests the fitness!) but we managed it but not for anyone with mobility issues.Other than a few negs overall a lovely week enjoyed by all.

Fantastic holiday. The house made it really special for us all. As described with every creature comfort. Very clean. Our mini dachshund had no problem navigating the stairs and all levels. Ideal for the harbour area and ferry. Amazing views. Thank you

Very nice house in a good location although hard to get about because of narrow lanes and the estuary to drive around. The description of ample parking was a major let down as there was only one dedicated parking spot due to double garage being out of bounds. This meant our classic cars were left further away from the house than we normally would lRead moreike. The house is in need of a few minor repairs to justify the price. Hide

This a fantastic house, with so much light and clever design features. The pictures do not do the size of the house and the view justice. The terrace is very sheltered and catches the sun all afternoon and evening making it the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by. It is a quick (but steep) 5/10 min walk to the harbour with 2 lovely pubRead mores, 2 bakery's and a well stocked shop. Paddle boarding and walking from the bay was brilliant also. We will hopefully be back again soon! Hide

It is a lovely, modern house with great views and facilities. We loved sitting on the terrace or in the hot tub at sunset. Cinema room great for the kids. SW coastal path only 5 mins walk away.

The location is excellent, (but beware the steep hill down to the harbour) close to the village centre but also very private. We didn't want to leave and have already booked next year.

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.
