About the property

Apartment in Polperro, Cornwall, England - Boat Trips, Fishing And Magnificent Walks Are Right On Your Doorstep - Almost Literally!

Lower Laurels is a unique ground floor apartment in an old 3 storey house. With separate double bedroom, en suite with lovely big shower, tastefully furnished and fully equipped throughout, it has everything you need for a relaxing break for two. At the side of the house up some steps, is a small private sun terrace.Set back just 6 steps up from The Warren - a tiny lane of old fishermens (and smugglers!) cottages that runs alongside the harbour and which is part of the coastal path leading up and along the dramatic Cornish coastline! Browse the shops, stopping for a traditional pasty or cream tea at one of the lovely little outdoor cafes or just take a picnic and relax in the sun. There's a small (usually sandy) tidal beach just a 4 minute walk around the harbour. Great pubs and restaurants are just 4-5 minutes stroll away. There aren't any nightclubs but you may hear the occasional fishing boat catching an early morning tide... Lower Laurels offers a rare combination of seclusion yet within the heart of Polperro!

I live in Polperro with my wife and have been successfully letting out this lovely apartment for 7 years.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Beautiful Cottage in a beautiful village."

We stayed for four nights back in October. The Lower Laurels is a beautiful,one bedroomed cottage in Polperro.

We had been looking to return to Polperro for a short break and after seeing that Lower Laurels was dog friendly we decided to enquire about it's availability. Owner Kelvin Foy quoted a very reasonable price and the whole booking process was handled very efficiently and friendly. The cottage was very well equipped,clean and cosy. We ate out most days as Polperro has some great pubs and restaurants. The Blue Peter being the pick of a very good bunch. Their sunday lunch is a must, as well as the fish and chips.

The cottage is conveniently situated near the quayside and close to all shops/pubs/restaurants. However, if you know the village,you'll be aware that you can't access parts of it by car. You'll have to park your car at the car park up the top and walk down, so i recommend a suitcase with wheels. Don't let this put you off though,it adds to the charm of the place.

I would thoroughly recommend Lower Laurels and the village of Polperro to everyone

"Cosy, comfortable and in the right location"

First and foremost, my wife and I stayed at Lower Laurels for a long weekend and were given a warm welcome by the owner Kelvin Foy . The apartment is cosy, clean, decorated in keeping with a seaside rental and ideally placed (literally a stone's throw) from the harbour. We walked, ate in the pubs and restaurants and enjoyed the beauty of Polperro without a single hitch. Recommend this to a single person or couple.

"Conveniently located in beautiful harbour village."

We stayed for a week in Pollpero and were really pleased with the accomadation which was situated right on the harbour and a stones throw from a variety of pubs, restaurants and shops. Lower Laurels is nicely converted and was perfect for our stay. The little seating terrace was a great addition and luckily we had great weather to be able to use the proximity to the coastal path for walks with the dog. A long drive from Yorkshire but worth it.
