Just 70 metres from pubs, cafes and the pretty harbour, there's no need to travel long distances if you don't want to.

  • 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.

This was our first visit to Polruan and Berties was the perfect location for a relaxing week. Right on the quay with an amazing view of the estuary and across to Fowey from the lounge and bedroom. The cottage was very comfortable, with everything we needed, plenty of space . Beware the walk from the car park is very steep. We did manage to park outRead moreside just to load up quickly. Parking can be paid by the week via PayPal but remember to put your registration number in the comments! Hide

Berties Cottage is in a perfect location with easy access to everything around the harbour. It is steps to The Lugger Inn, recommend a Sunday Roast as well as their full menu. The Russell Inn again steps away has the most amazing fish and chips we have ever eaten! Make sure you starve all day before you order them... We havent visited this area of Read moreCornwall before but the scenery is stunning and the local people are friendly, helpful and make you feel at home. Hide

The property is perfectly situated near the quay with amazing views from the lounge and the bedroom. It is very well equipped and we especially liked that it had a freezer. Perfect for storing the fish we caught!

Nice cottage, very cosy. Can park on the quay side for a fee to local post office which makes it a lot easier. Good walks near by and decent places to eat in Fowey. Also cashpoint services available in Fowey.

Location

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.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
