Description

Experience - The Area...

With panoramic views of Fowey Harbour from the first floor, this traditional Victorian mid terrace cottage stands in an elevated position above the unspoilt fishing village of Polruan with the quayside just a five minute walk down the steep hill. Ideal for family holidays, the cottage is decorated and comfortably furnished in keeping with its period and is approached by a pedestrian lane set just below the main village car park.

There are two pubs, a cafe, village store and post office adjacent to the quayside approximately 500 yards downhill. From here, a regular passenger ferry operates to Fowey where there is a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, boat trips departing from the town quay and a beach at Readymoney Cove.

There are beautiful coastal and creekside walks in the immediate vicinity including the Hall Walk and Pencarrow Head and the nearest sandy beaches are Lantic Bay and Lansallos about a 10 minute drive. Polperro is 5.5 miles and Looe just a little further.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Fronted by a good sized garden, the cottage is entered by a gated path with a couple of steps leading up to the front door which opens into a small entrance lobby with coat pegs. To one side there is a warm and cosy beamed sitting room with lounge seating arranged before the exposed Cornish stone chimney breast and on the opposite side is a pleasant dining room with rocking chairs next to the hearth; both rooms with cushioned window seats overlooking the front lawn.

In an extension at the rear, one step leads up to a newly fitted kitchen and a further step continues up to a ground floor bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath and a back door opening out to a service courtyard.

A carpeted staircase leads directly up in one corner of the dining room to the first floor landing where there are two double rooms and a single bedroom at the front of the cottage all enjoying stunning views of the River Fowey and upstream to Bodinnick. One step at the rear continues up to a fourth bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath. There are electric convector heaters in all bedrooms.

The lawn to the front of the cottage is gated and enclosed by a low boundary hedge, and although, as with most accommodation in Polruan, there is no parking on site, the pay and display village car park and children's playground are just a 2 minute walk up the hill.

Don't forget...

- A weekly car park ticket currently costs £25.
- This property welcomes a maximum of two medium sized dogs.
