Located in the heart of Polruan’s conservation area, this delightful property has been stylishly renovated and furnished. Conveniently positioned to explore all this area of Cornwall has to offer.

Commanding an outstanding position overlooking the estuary and situated in the heart of the fishing village of Polruan, Hill House makes the perfect coastal escape at any time of year. With breathtaking views across the harbour towards the popular town of Fowey, its homely yet stylish decor and charming lawned garden surrounded by apple trees gives you the opportunity to recharge your batteries, while enjoying the company of family and friends.

The spectacular views are not the only reason to stay in this cottage. The interior is equally lovely with a contemporary style highlighting its traditional features. Originally built for a master mariner in the 19th century, its history is reflected through nautical colours and touches dotted about the house, though the comfortable leather sofas and warming wood burner bring it firmly into the 21st century.

Wander around Polruan, where the quaint quayside and village store will make you feel as though you are in a different era. Spend lazy days wandering the narrow streets, walk down to the coast, under a mile away, or hop on the passenger ferry over to Fowey where you can easily spend a day browsing the shops and sampling freshly-caught fish in the marvellous seafood restaurants. For days out, head to the National Trust's Lanhydrock House (15 miles away) where you can explore the Victorian house, woodland and riverside paths or spend a fun day on the water at Siblyback Lake, 20 miles from the property.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A fantastic house in a lovely setting. Comfortable, well-equipped and spacious with fantastic views over the estuary. The position on the hill and car parking for one vehicle only means some walking on the steep hill into town is inevitable.

Cottage is like home from home as all amenities are there. The garden is splendid with the new garden furniture. Gorgeous kitchen diner for nice family meals. Views are exceptional.

Reviewed by Naomi 15th June 2019

The house was amazingly well equipped, it was comfy and we had lots of space. It was incredibly clean and the little touches on the house, made it even more special. Parking the car was a bit tight, but ok once you got used to it. The walk down and up the hill to the passenger ferry was good exercise! The shops and restaurants in Fowey are fab.

Pretty much everything about our stay at Hill House was brilliant. From arrival details, the house itself, as well as the delightful town of Polruan. We wanted for nothing in this lovely cottage.

I could not more strongly recommend Hill House. Hide

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.
