We were fortunate to have 6 days of good weather, and having the coast path just across the lane for walks was part of the reason for choosing Zenith. Having stayed in Polruan many times, we know it, and the area very well. An excellent base for exploring, very clean, and cooker though old, worked well.

Stunning views over the sea from the cottage where you can watch the arrivals and departures from the harbour. Easy walk down to Polruan harbour but be prepared for a slower walk back up the hill. Must see the view from St Saviours car park towards Fowey - breathtaking.

A lovely house with fantastic sea views situated at the top of a very steep hill down to Polruan.There is also a garden which isn't secure if you have dogs. When you walk down the hill there are two pubs a general store and a small caf which sells lovely pasties and sandwiches.The Pubs also sell food which you can eat in or outside sitting on benchRead morees overlooking the harbour. The trip over to Fowey via the ferry is worth it as there is more to see and do.Nice beach at Readymoney cove. Hide

Stunning views on balcony are amazing and saved the holiday. However, house needs massive updating. Old oven, old shower, old TV, old sink which sinks of sewage(!), feels like owner is banking on guests being so blown away by views that they have not bothered with updating fundamentals. Shower simply doesnt work you either get very hot or very coldRead more water. However, if owner updated the place it could be a stunning holiday home. Did it spoil our holiday? No, because we went to local beaches. Hide

Great views from the house. Many stairs so you need to be very fit. Garden not secure for dogs. Many escape routes through hedge in the back garden. Key safe needs moving urgently. It is hidden behind the tank in the front garden and we arrived in the pouring rain and got very wet squeezing past the shrubbery. Such a shame.

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.
