Please note: Towels are not supplied. No cot provided, carrycot/travel cot accepted. It is just under half a mile from the parking space and approximately a 10 minute walk.
With superb harbour and coastline views from the garden, this grade II listed traditional terraced cottage with accommodation on three floors is tucked into a traffic free area known as The Warren lying in the heart of the picturesque fishing village of Polperro.

Set to one side of a narrow lane that forms part of the South West Coast Path, this quaint cottage benefits from its own unique sun terrace and summerhouse and retains great charm and character with low beamed ceilings and doorways.

Sharing an outer front door and lobby, the inner glazed door opens directly into a rustic beamed kitchen/diner with a bespoke galley kitchen, pine dining suite with a glimpse of the harbour and at the rear, a compact shower room W.C. with hand basin.

A steep and narrow rope railed stairway leads up to a cosy sitting room on the first floor with a board and beam ceiling, comfortable lounge seating, an electric log effect fire and the sound of the sea filling the window. There is also a stable door opening out to a railed flight of ten steps that lead down to the pedestrian lane from which the cottage takes its name and offers an alternative, slightly easier access to the property.

A further steep staircase continues up to the second floor and two cottage style bedrooms; the master bedroom with a 4ft double enjoying a bird's eye view overlooking the working fishing harbour and a small single bedroom at the rear with trundle bed. There are electric convector heaters in both bedrooms.

From the latter, a low door gives access to the rear hillside garden with nine steps that lead up to a sheltered paved patio and a further nine steps continue up to a south facing wooden sun deck with summerhouse and glorious views over the harbour, rugged cliffs and far out to sea. Young children and pets will require supervision outside.

There is one reserved parking space in the main village car park just under half a mile away and approximately a 10 minute walk - there is no vehicle access to the property however a luggage taxi service is available.

The many cafes, restaurants, pubs, galleries and local shops are close at hand as is the Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing. Seasonal pleasure boat trips depart from the harbour, and the coastal footpath offers fine walks eastwards to Talland Bay & Looe, and westbound to Lansallos & Polruan.

There is a small sandy beach that sits outside the harbour walls and is accessible during low tide, and further beaches can be found along the coast at Talland, Lantivet and Lantic Bays. Looe is 4 miles by road and Fowey 7 miles via the Bodinnick ferry. This property can be rented with next door but one Warren Cottage for larger parties.

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.
