Set in an elevated position with sea views at the top of Polruan is The Doghouse which is a large, beautifully presented two bedroom cabin set in the grounds of the owner's home with ample garden and private parking.

The property is accessed via a ramp up into (one step) a useful porch which in turn leads into the main hallway off which the living and sleeping accommodation can be found.

To the right is the open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The bespoke oak and well-equipped kitchen provides all the expected appliances with a separate external utility room housing the washing machine and tumble dryer and handy extra WC. The living room with 42" Panasonic television provides comfortable easy seating and dining for the four guests accommodated with far reaching views out to sea.

Should heating be required in this exceptionally well insulated property, portable electric heaters are provided.

The two bedrooms which comprise of a double and twin are of a good size with ample hanging and drawer space provided. The family shower room WC consists of a shower cubicle, wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.

The ancient fishing village of Polruan has two pubs which serve food, a handy convenience store with off license, a general holiday store with Post Office and cashpoint, a Chandlery store for all your boating requirements and tea rooms.  A bus runs throughout the day down into Polruan as well as servicing other tourist destinations such as Looe and Polperro.

From the quayside you can hop on the foot ferry which runs frequently across the harbour to Fowey where you will find an array of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs at your disposal.  A car ferry across to Fowey operates from nearby Bodinnick. Please note that a charge for using either ferry applies all year round. Leisure boats can be moored in the harbour for a reasonable fee and by contacting the Harbourmaster in Fowey.

Polruan has two tidal beaches known to the locals as front and back beaches.  Tide permitting, these little stretches of beach are family friendly and the pontoon is ideal for children to fish for crab. Otherwise, the nearest beaches are at Lantivet Bay, Lansallos and Lantic Bay all within 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.

PLEASE NOTE
- This property welcomes a maximum of two medium sized dogs

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.

The Doghouse - Testimonials
Close
  • "I normally dont want to go to the same place two years in a row but I've already booked again for next year. We've fallen in love with the area but its really the people who make places, and Vic and Lis are just the best hosts, who we have kept in contact with since returning home. The accommodation itself is spotless, spacious and very comfortable and we cant wait to come again next year." Mrs A Allanson
  • "The Doghouse is clean and comfortable and has everything you need for your stay." Miss L Howell
