This cosy cottage is set in the heart of this ancient fishing village and has easy access to all Cornwall has to offer, with Fowey a short ferry ride away with a choice of pubs and restaurants.

Located just 500 metres from Polruan’s harbour, this cottage is perfectly located for a waterside escape with the whole family, four-legged friends included. With a passenger ferry to Fowey almost within touching distance, you’ll find it easy to explore, while back at your home from home, a warm welcome awaits you.

The detached traditional cottage is spacious throughout, with a light, sunny decor and large windows. In the kitchen/diner, you’ll find dining space for six guests - the perfect place to gather for a lazy breakfast or for planning the day’s adventures. The lounge is the ultimate relaxation space, with a wood burner and comfy sofas where you can snuggle up and watch a film after a day of exploring. On the ground floor, you will find one twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and WC, while two further bedrooms are on the first floor, accessed by the staircase to the rear of the property.

Polruan itself is an ancient fishing village, famous for its boat building heritage. You’ll find everything you need here, including two popular village pubs, while across the estuary in Fowey (3.5 miles) you can enjoy harbour cruises, kayak expeditions, and more. Further afield, there are plenty of places to explore; why not visit the tall ships at Charlestown (17.5 miles), take the brewery tour in St. Austell (18 miles), or visit the Eden Project (15.5 miles)?

Ivy Crag is a superb property, fully equipped with quality items. Ideal for a dog with wonderful cliff top walks. You will not find a better cottage for a relaxing holiday.

Reviewed by Karen 28th June 2019

This cottage was delightful. Spacious, airy and bright. The kitchen is great. Loads of room to move around and very well equipped. The owners even provide doggy litter bags! There is a large TV in the lounge with a large number of DVDs to choose from. Given the space and equipment, a winter break would be as enjoyable as in summer. Very steep hill Read moredown to the harbour so need to be fit- but you soon get used to it! Hide

A comfortable and well furnished cottage that is in a very scenic area. The attention to detail and provision of all the needs of visitors was very impressive. A marvellous experience.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful village. Need to be very fit to get back up the hill so not for the faint hearted or anyone with mobility problems. Cottage is extremely well equipped and a bonus having 3 bathrooms. Luggers Inn at bottom of hill serves excellent food but reserve as gets very busy.

Reviewed by Paul 26th April 2019

Very well equipped and comfortable spacious cottage situated in typical Cornish creekside village. Simple but adequate facilities in the village - including two pubs. Good base for north Cornwall with lots to see and do.

Reviewed by Derek 29th December 2018

Owners attention to detail is exceptional. Perfect for family. Also for 2 couples, with separate bedrooms on opposite sides of the house.

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.
