Just a few paces off Fore street, so you really are only just seconds walk from the Quay, shops and two village pubs whilst still maintaining a quiet tranquil hideaway.

With the location of this cottage it means you will never miss out on what's going on but at the same time you can enjoy the privacy and calm the village is known for. Polruan is a small fishing village in the parish of Lanteglos-by-Fowey in Cornwall. It is bounded on three sides by water, there are two pubs and a passenger ferry that will take you across to Fowey. 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 near Bodmin.

From the hallway  up 5 slate steps into the contemporary kitchen, which comes fully equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

  • Many of the amenities, ferries and cottages in Polruan are accessed via steps some of which can be steep. Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Polruan do not have private parking. However, there is a large pay and display carpark at the top of the village.

Great location. We had an amazing time would definitely recommend.

Fairly well equipped property, though not very child friendly as disposed on 4 levels, from ground floor to attic. Space is enough for a big family, if you spent most of your time outside. Small little village this only 2 puns and 1 local store/bakery, but with 2-3 one way you get easily across to Fowey which is more satisfactory location. Ferries Read morerum till approx 21:30-22:00 at night. Hide

Lovely place to stay, near the pubs, shop,quay and ferry.

Reviewed by Cate 23rd June 2019

Lovely modern cottage, suitable for a small family(4). Very open with mezzanine upper double bedroom overlooking the living area and a glimpse of the harbour from the window .We would definitely stay again but wouldn't take our dog as it's not suitable even though the owners allow pets. There is no garden so you can't leave a door open, every time Read moreshe needed to go for a wee we had to put the lead on and take her outside and this made us paranoid about her doing something in the property.

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.
