Please note: A weekly car park ticket currently costs £25.
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.

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. 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.

PLEASE NOTE
- A weekly car park ticket currently costs £25
- 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.

If you are eligible for the Loyalty Discount your final balance payment will be reduced accordingly after your booking has been submitted. The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

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.
