 Newly refurbished with a stylish interior, this spacious character cottage has endless charm for families or couples as a base to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

This property is the ideal base for families to explore the Cornish coast, located just a short walk from the beach in Polruan. Take a trip over the river to Fowey on the passenger ferry and explore the shops and restaurants or take the small ferry to the village of Mevagissey. For the walkers, there are plenty of coastal paths to choose from and for the beach lovers, take your pick of the many close by beaches along the Cornish coast. For a fun day out there are a range of attractions worth a visit including, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project, Charlestown, one of the filming locations in the TV series Poldark and Hangloose Adventures.

Step inside to the sympathetically restored and welcoming sitting room with an abundance of charm. With exposed beams and a window seat to sit and watch the world go by, there’s plenty of character here. Enjoy the open fire on a cold winter night or watch your favourite series on the smart TV. From here, a stable door leads to the light and airy kitchen/diner, ideal place for socialising. Enjoy a lazy breakfast or evening meal at the dining table and plan your days ahead. The kitchen is equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with ice box. Head upstairs to the two bedrooms, super-king-size zip-and-links (which can be made into twins on request) with plenty of storage. The bathroom has a bath for a long soak after a day’s exploring, and a separate shower cubicle.

Outside there’s an enclosed sunny courtyard perfect for a family BBQ or dining al fresco, just sit back and relax!

However, there is a large pay and display car park at the top of the village.

A beautifully renovated cottage. Only about 5 houses up from the quay at Polruan. No parking outside in the very narrow steep street so a quick stop to throw luggage in and then park up in the car park. Dog friendly and practical with no carpet downstairs. Lovely touches like free slippers. Comfy and cosy. Good wifi and EE signal. O2 slightly weak.Read more Great location as near the ferry to Fowey, the Lugger Inn (good food), Jam First lovely little cafe and a shop and bakery opposite. Great weekend. Hide

Wonderful cottage in a perfect location! Cottage was warm, spotlessly clean and super comfortable. Rear terrace paved and fully enclosed - perfect to let the dog out without worries of escape! Only a few hundred yards away from passenger ferry to Fowey so nice not to need the car for every excursion. Will definitely re-visit!

Warm and cosy cottage with very comfortable beds. Prefect location in the heart of the village, a stone's throw from the village store and bakery, and close to lovely pub and the ferry to Fowey. Our dog loved it too! Highly recommended as a location and as a delightful property to stay in.
