Property code: PC054

A quaint and surprisingly large cottage which is ideally situated in the heart of the village with its narrow streets and unspoiled architecture.

This former sail loft has been converted to a comfortable and spacious holiday property for a small family or couple. Once standing ready by the quay to repair bulky fishing-boat sails, it's now your perfectly positioned holiday base in the heart of Polruan village, across the beautiful Fowey River harbour from Fowey village. You've easy access on foot to the picturesque Polperro Heritage Coast section of the South West Coast Path, and to many day trip destinations by car across South Cornwall.

As befits a sail loft, the floor space is generous and full use is made of this by the kitchen/dining room downstairs and the lounge on the first floor. Here you'll enjoy the cheerful bright colour touches, warm hues in furnishings and cosy rugs, and masses of sofa space for a quiet night in. On those cooler evenings, the feature cast iron wood burner will keep you toasty warm. Bedrooms have a calm colour palette and retro fabrics.

Within 100 metres there are cafes, shops and The Quay for ferry trips to Fowey with its speciality shops, restaurants and art galleries. By The Quay is the village beach and a welcoming inn. In Fowey, Readymoney Cove (a half-mile walk from the ferry) has views of Polruan across the harbour. Further afield, an 18-mile drive to see traditional wooden ships in Charlestown Harbour and Shipwreck Museum will transport you to the 18th century Age of Sail, or 2 miles further on, St Austell Brewery runs tours and tastings.

  • Sleeps 2+1
  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double and 1 single 
  • 1 bathroom 
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, hi-fi and washing machine
  • Wood burner
  • Electric and night storage heating included 
  • Bed linen and towels included 
  • Parking available at nearby car parks, charges apply 
  • Regret no pets
  • Beach, shop, pub/restaurant within walking distance 
  • TV/ DVD in lounge and TV in master bedroom
  • Please note the staircases are steep so care needs to be taken with small children
  • Polruan is a quaint little village situated on a very steep hill, so access to some parts of the village can be challenging.
  • 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 property is personally managed by Louise.

A beatiful cottage which was very central and within stumbling distance of local pubs. Plenty of fire wood and towels where left for our stay together with Christmas decorations. We had a lovely stay.

Another relaxing week in Polruan. A warm cosy property, providing a great base to explore the surrounding area. Plenty of space for three, though the single bedroom is very snug. Quite a hike from the carpark on the hill, but worth it and there is room (sometimes) outside for unloading. Really close to local amenities, shop, cafe and two pubs. We hRead moreave had a great time, even with the rain as the cottage is warm and welcoming after a day outside. Hide

It is a lovely cottage but because of it's location it is not ideal for older people. Very steep road into the village and for parking.

Reviewed by Jane 4th September 2019

Lovely location, but need to be fit as lots of steep stairs in the cottage and steep slop to property. However all worth it as an amazing location to stay for your holiday in cronwall.

Nice cottage over 3 floors, well fitted out, ideally placed in the village.

Very comfortable and well placed for us. Also room for 1 adult son at a time should any of them fancy a couple of days break. Well presented and very clean.

Reviewed by Catherine 11th May 2019

Holiday Cottage was very clean and comfortable. Location was perfect for a nice relaxing break, close to the harbour and convenient for walks and the ferry to Fowey. We also found the community bus, which stopped outside our door, a useful service to view the surrounding countryside and visit local villages. There is a lovely cafe next door, servinRead moreg good food but only until about 4pm. The local pub 'The Russell Inn' serves reasonable food but only on certain nights which means a trip to Fowey Hide

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.
