Property code: PC027

Tucked away from the main area of the quay only a few paces from Back Beach, one of Polruan's hidden secrets. A romantic hideaway or a bolt hole to escape a busy life.

A pretty romantic bolthole where you can escape as a couple to explore the pretty, peaceful fishing village of Polruan. The property itself is tucked away and located just a few steps from Back Beach. It's an ideal cottage from which to explore the south coast of Cornwall, with its stunning beaches and beautiful coastline. Take a deep breath and relax.

Inside the property, there's absolutely no mistaking you're in Cornwall. With its blue hues and definite nautical and seaside influence, the owners have brought the outdoors indoors. After a day of exploring, you can cosy up in front of the wood burner and share memories of the day. Upstairs, you'll find a second lounge with estuary views and a double bedroom. Please be aware, this is very much a Cornish cottage and so expect low ceilings in the kitchen and some steep cottage-style stairs. The lack of outdoor space is also more than made up for with the property's proximity to the beach and Quay.

Once you've strolled through the quaint streets of Polruan with its shop, pub and cafe, you'll probably want to explore further afield. If you enjoy bobbing on the water, less than half a mile away catch the ferry to Fowey, browse its independent shops and grab a bite from one of the local pubs. Take a drive 16 miles to the awe-inspiring Eden Project with its fascinating bio-domes or transport yourself back in time 18 miles away at Charlestown, with its tall ships.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Many of the amenities, ferries and cottages in Polruan are accessed via steps/ slopes some of which can be steep. Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • There are many small winding streets in and around Polruan 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. A small amount of parking can be found on the village quay.

Possibly the best of many cottages we have had in Polruan. Well equipped. So many lovely pictures, glass artwork and other artefacts made it a constant pleasure to be in Fairlight. Lovely comfortable lounge. Cottage so well located...on level of the Quay and the pubs. Close to shop. So that hard work of climbing steep slopes is reserved for the manRead morey lovely walks in the Polruan and Fowey area. Hide

Well equipped small friendly cottage on the quayside at Polruan. The rooms were stylishly decorated with original Jo Downs hand crafted glassware. Forget the car - travel around by ferry to nearby Fowey or Mevagissey. Such beautiful countryside to explore, using the cottage as an excellent base.

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.
