A spacious luxury house, having 4 bedrooms with amazing harbour views, where you can watch the sailing and the Fowey ferry bob to and fro on the river. The garden to the front is ideal for your morning coffee and river watching and to the back you can choose which level you would prefer, the higher up the better the view, this is where your alfresco dining will take place!

The Quay is where you will catch the passenger ferry across to Fowey to enjoy the many restaurants and gallery's. At low tide we have two beaches 'front beach' just on the quay and also 'back beach' just to the side, all within a few minutes walking distance of the house. The world famous Eden Project, Looe and Polperro are all closeby or a little further afield you can visit Wadebridge, St Ives, Falmouth or Port Isaac where the popular Doc Martin series is filmed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

'What a property, thank you so much for suggesting this magnificent house. Being just two of us we wouldn't have looked at a house of this size but for the under occupancy discount! We thoroughly enjoyed the walks, the pubs were so friendly, Crumpets was a delight and as for the house - just perfect!'

The Royal Cornwall Show is held on 9th, 10th and 11th June 2016


Polruan has a tidal sandy beach on the quay that is ideal for the younger children for building sandcastles, or just around the corner another tidal sandy beach. The children love to go crabbing from the pontoon in the summer months. Lantic Bay is a beach only accessed via a steep cliff walk or by boat but well worth the effort. The coastal walk to Polperro 6 miles along the cliff path which is an advanced walk and most will either get a taxi or the bus back! Looe is just 20 mins in the car.


A car is preferred, the closest train station is either Lostwithiel or Liskeard which has direct access from Paddington although a taxi will be required to get from these stations. If you get off at Par you can get a bus to Fowey then the ferry across to Polruan.


Fowey 2 miles, Polperro 8 miles,Truro 31 miles, Plymouth 35 miles, Lostwithiel 11 miles, Liskeard 14 miles, Bodmin 14 miles, Looe 10 Miles

Further Details:

Polruan has two pubs both serving good food, a lovely tea room, bakery and food store. Just a 5 minute ferry ride away is Fowey where there are a number of good restaurants and pubs. Barclays bank is in Fowey. A mini market, excellent butchers which conveniently also sells wine! There are a number of art galleries, cafes, shops and boat hiring facilities.
