A beautiful cottage overlooking Fowey estuary. Easy access to Fowey via passenger ferry. Very quaint but with the necessary equipment needed for a relaxing holiday ie: washer dryer and dishwasher. Many steps to the car so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Would definitely go back.

I am generally quite hard to impress - however River Watch is a truly fantastic holiday cottage. Lovely and spacious, in a great location, with literally everything you could possibly need for your stay. This was our first time in Polruan and we will definitely be back again in the near future. Highly recommend!

River Watch is the perfect cottage in Polruan. Awesome views, a great location and very cosy/homely. We could have happily stayed in for weeks! After staying in 16 different cottages in Polruan, over 30 + visits, this is our first at River Watch, and wont be our last!! Its perfect.

Beautiful property and location. One of our most relaxing days was staying in and watching a cruise ship dock in the harbour. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful views from this cottage, near to the centre of the village and the cliff walks. It was lovely and warm when we stayed in January, as the night storage heaters were very effective. The king sized bed was very comfy, we didnt try the other beds as there was only 2 of us. The cottage was clean and was well equipped and there was a small gardRead moreen for our dog. Would definitely recommend staying there. Hide
