Hill House, Polruan, was built for a master mariner in the 19th century and has recently been renovated to a luxury standard. Great care has been taken to retain this superb property's many charming period features and make the most of its outstanding position overlooking the estuary, in the heart of Polruan's conservation area.
The house comfortably sleeps 8 in 4 double bedrooms (2 king, 2 twin), and is centrally heated throughout using the latest eco-friendly technology. The upstairs living area has a wood burner to keep you cosy on chilly evenings, enjoying DVDs, books and games from our extensive collection or simply gazing at the ever changing view from the large windows. Superfast fibre broadband is freely available throughout the house and there is a new curved Smart TV with internet access.
The solid oak kitchen incorporates a high quality range cooker, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge freezer and all the equipment a cook needs. The DAB radio includes an ipod dock, so you can listen to your own choice of music. A washer dryer can be found in the adjoining utility room. The kitchen leads into a spacious dining area under a roof lantern, with French windows opening out onto the patio. Here you can enjoy a relaxing meal taking in the fabulous views over the river to Fowey.
All the bathrooms are to wet room standard and include powerful showers and heated towel rails. Upstairs, the delightful front bedroom (French style king sized bed) and charming converted apple store bedroom (twin beds), featuring exposed beams, are served by a shower room. Downstairs, occupants of the twin room enjoy use of the bathroom with over-bath shower and the master bedroom has an en suite shower room with reclaimed teak fittings.
This property is ideal for couples holidaying together or for flexible family groups. Parking for one car is provided next to the house and the village car park is close by for additional vehicles. Once at Hill House, you have everything you need for a great car-free holiday. The coast path, beach, pubs, shops and passenger ferry to Fowey are all within a few minutes walk and there is a large private garden shaded by palm and apple trees.

July 2016 - One of the most beautiful properties we have ever stayed in! Spotlessly clean, well equipped and the view is amazing!
June 2016 - Wow. What can we say, beautiful house with a beautiful view. Amazing fully equipped kitchen and fantastic en-suite rooms decorated to a high standard.
May 2016 - Perfect as always - STILL the best holiday "cottage" in the world. A dream house in wonderful Polruan
August 2015 - I think it is quite rare to find a rental property where one feels instantly at home, from the moment that you set foot inside.
May 2014 - The house is stunning. To wake up in the morning and watch the boats sailing by is magic.
