The house is extremely comfortable and very well equipped. The location and views are absolutely stunning. It really is a little piece of heaven. After an 8 hour journey home, one of the first things I did was to see how soon we could rebook. We will certainly be back. Thank you Trebarfoote

An absolute gem, we would happily return to Trebarfoote. The property is beautifully appointed, and has everything you would want for a wonderful stay.

This cottage is fantastic views over the estuary to Fowey. It has been very well equipped and is really comfortable. It was clean and well presented for us. The only challenge was accessibility with a large car - its not unless you are very brave! However the car park isnt far away so we just used that and all was good. We had a lovely holiday.

This was a comfortable house in a spectacular position with far reaching views. The building work is still continuing on the property directly in front so be prepared for a bit of noise and disruption during the daytime. After 5months of lockdown this provided a great holiday base for three generations of the family.

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.
