A quaint little cottage on the Polruan hillside with fantastic garden views across the Fowey estuary from the elevated, decked garden. Shop, bakery and two pubs nearby as well as several walks along the coast path and hall walk to boddinick. Calming, relaxing home with all the bits and bobs you need. Dogs welcome too!

We had a really lovely holiday here! We were a group of 5 adults so it was a bit of a squeeze in the kitchen and around the dining table but that didnt stop us enjoying ourselves. The view from the terrace is just beautiful and we sat out until late most nights, boat and star watching! Access is a little tricky but everyone in Polruan is used to itRead more so you just need to go with the flow, unload and park your car in the car park at the top of the hill.

Cosy cottage in beautiful condition. Loved the woodburner, underfloor heating in the very spacious bathroom, all mod cons in the kitchen and welcome basket. Terrace with sweeping views over harbour was wonderful. Cars can drop off 100m away at the bottom of the alley (whilst blocking road) but best parking solution is to get weekly ticket for 25 inRead more St Saviour's car park at top of hill opposite and accept the exercise - Polruan is almost car-free and that's part of the charm.

Cosy cottage nestled into the hillside of polruan. Well furnished with all the things youd need come rain or shine. Excellent location just a short walk to two local pubs, the polruan passenger ferry to Fowey and excellent base for some local walks.

Really warm and cosy. Very quiet location, not too far from the Luggers pub which was absolutely lovely. WiFi reception not very good in lower rooms. Great views from kitchen windows, beautiful sea views and closer the birds were lovely in the trees. Steep Narrow road made it awkward to drop off luggage, we are quite fit so not a problem .

This cottage was perfect and ideally suited for a short stay for a couple. Full of charm and character with a cosy feel being tucked away and very quiet being effectively detached. The view was great from the first floor dinning /kitchen room and from the decked area to the rear garden across to Fowey in the evening sunny position. Stayed in a few Read morePolruan cottages and this was my favourite. The three doubles give plenty of space but indulge as a couple if you can afford and like space. Perfect Hide

Lovely cottage, but very difficult to access. Car park is a walk away, and you need to block the road to unload the car.
