A traditional cottage with estuary views set about halfway down the steep lane leading to the harbour in the quaint old seafaring village of Polruan looking across the water at Fowey.

The front door opens directly from the street and half a dozen steps lead straight up to a small lobby and a charming sitting room with comfortable seating and lovely views down to the bustling rivermouth. Also on this level are a bright and spacious dining room and a fitted kitchen with an old decorative Cornish Range and a small breakfast area.

In one corner of the dining room, a door opens to a rear hall and carpeted stairs lead up to a landing, a compact bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath and three bedrooms, all with low doorways. The main bedroom has a king size bed and views down the lane to the boats in the harbour, there is a small double bedroom overlooking the patio garden and a cosy 3ft bunk bedroom looking across to the wooden sundeck.

A stable door opens from the hall to a rear courtyard which is shared with one other cottage and has access steps leading down to a gated passageway opening to the village lane. Also from the courtyard, a dozen steps lead up to a decking with a picnic table and views of the Fowey River, a terraced patio with a summer house looking over the harbour and estuary, and a useful garden W.C. Pets and young children will require supervision outside as there are low walls.

Parking is in the main village car park on St Saviours Hill about a 5 minute walk and there are two pubs, small shops and a tea room down on the quayside. The foot ferry runs frequently across the harbour to Fowey which has a wider selection of shops, pubs and restaurants or alternatively a car ferry operates from Bodinnick. The nearest beaches are at Lansallos and Lantic Bayabout a 10 minute drive or Readymoney Cove on the Fowey side of the river, and the area has a wealth of historical and coastal walks.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
