Dark, damp basement. Lovely harbour but a tiring walk from car park to studio with bags, kids and dog.

The studio is set in a wonderful location with gorgeous views, its well equipped & the hills were not a problem for us, however the smell of damp in there is horrendous & needs sorting, I had to sleep wearing a mask as it was unbearable in the back room!! (Smelt like wee) it also needs cleaning to a higher standard as parts of it were not acceptablRead moree & new bedding. Such a shame, with updating & TLC it could be amazing, left a day early as couldnt stand the smell any longer. Hide

Basement accommodation a bit of a shock because of damp smell upon arrival. After a couple of days with windos and doors open it became acceptable, in fact bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and well laid out. Polruan is a lovely place to visit. The view from the patio was perfect.

Cosy studio, well equipped and comfortable. Lovely village and superb views. It is not possible to get car outside for unloading and it is a good steep walk from the car park.

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.
