Visit Polruan

If it’s a holiday by the water you’re after, Polruan is the perfect destination for you. Set on a steep hill, the ancient fishing village is bound on three sides by water: Pont Creek to the north, the River Fowey to the west and the English Channel to the south. Located across the river from its more famous neighbour Fowey, bobbing boats and hillside cottages ensure there’s much to love about Polruan.

A picture-perfect village

Situated at the mouth of the River Fowey, Polruan is your quintessential picture-perfect fishing village with cottages rising up with the hillside and small boats floating in the water beneath.

You’ll be well-placed for a visit to popular town Fowey when on holiday here. The Polruan Ferry crosses the river to Fowey every 15 minutes throughout the year, and is one of the best ways in and out of the village. Over in Fowey, you’ll be able to enjoy its many pubs, restaurants and cafes, while the town’s shops, museum and aquarium are also worth a visit.

Back in Polruan, make sure you visit the characterful pub, The Lugger Inn, offering sea views from every window. Fresh seafood and Fowey estuary mussels are always on offer, as are Cornish ales, ciders and other locally sourced food.
