Lovely house, 10 min walk to harbour. Location is great, fabulous view from lounge and kitchen, spacious bedrooms and lovely shower. Balcony and garden were lovely, great for hanging wet clothes and dogs can enjoy a run around. The kitchen was fine but needs a bit more implements. Not many pans and pots. Overall it was a nice stay.

Upon arrival, we were impressed with the position of the house and views. On entering the property, we were met by a musty damp smell, which appeared to be worse in the built in wardrobes and also there is damp on the wall behind the radiator in the twin room. On further inspection found various areas that were sadly lacking in cleanliness, for exaRead moremple large cobwebs and all the windows were dirty including a dead squashed fly. Very outdated, needs to be refurbished. Hide

Beautifully located house, the views are incredible and perfectly situated as a base for a holiday in Cornwall. Very peaceful and quiet. Very spacious. Ideal for a well trained dog that won't wander off as it's not fully enclosed as suggested. Great value for money and will definitely go back again.

We were fortunate to have 6 days of good weather, and having the coast path just across the lane for walks was part of the reason for choosing Zenith. Having stayed in Polruan many times, we know it, and the area very well. An excellent base for exploring, very clean, and cooker though old, worked well.

Stunning views over the sea from the cottage where you can watch the arrivals and departures from the harbour. Easy walk down to Polruan harbour but be prepared for a slower walk back up the hill. Must see the view from St Saviours car park towards Fowey - breathtaking.

A lovely house with fantastic sea views situated at the top of a very steep hill down to Polruan.There is also a garden which isn't secure if you have dogs. When you walk down the hill there are two pubs a general store and a small caf which sells lovely pasties and sandwiches.The Pubs also sell food which you can eat in or outside sitting on benchRead morees overlooking the harbour. The trip over to Fowey via the ferry is worth it as there is more to see and do.Nice beach at Readymoney cove. Hide
