Cottages in Polruan
With its narrow streets and unspoilt charm, the ancient fishing village of Polruan is a hidden gem nestling on the south Cornish coast.
Built on a steep hill, this picturesque village with its bustling harbour, inn and shops sits on the banks of the River Fowey, where the river meets the sea. With only one road in and out, Polruan has a feeling of remoteness which has attracted writers and artists over the years all who have settled here to enjoy spectacular views and a gentle pace of life.
Sandy beaches, sheltered bays and secluded coves make this stretch of coastline perfect for families of all ages. Swim in the harbour at high tide, discover the joys of crabbing or simply relax with a pint whilst watching an assortment of boats bobbing on the water. From the quayside take a trip on the passenger ferry to Fowey, famous for its August regatta, which lies directly across the river.
Walkers can explore the beautiful coastal path and discover the unspoilt coves of Lantic Bay and Lantivet, or follow in the footsteps of Daphne du Maurier along the Hall Walk. If you’re seeking a day trip then the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Restormel Castle are all close by.
