The Cornwall region

Polperro is one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Winding streets lead down to the picturesque harbour, which was once a haunt of smugglers. Polperro is a historic fishing village, and pretty, colour-washed cottages line the steep valley overlooking the harbour. Attractions include a model village and a smuggling museum. There are charming pubs, numerous restaurants and plenty of shops to browse. The coast path leads off to Looe, via Talland Bay and spectacular views of Looe Island, or Polruan, where you may catch a ferry over to Fowey. The Polperro Festival is a week-long music festival that takes place each June. Guy Fawkes Night is celebrated with a stunning fireworks display over the harbour, and New Year is very popular, with most people in fancy dress.

Polperro

Talland Bay is a pretty cove a mile or two along the coast path from Polperro. Its beaches are popular with families and there are a couple of beach cafés.

The popular resort of Looe is about 4 miles from Polperro. Buses run between Polperro and Looe, or you can take a boat there from Polperro harbour. The River Looe divides East and West Looe. East Looe has popular, wide sandy beaches, excellent restaurants and an abundance of pubs and shops. West Looe has an extensive shingle and rock beach with good rock pools and a great view of Looe Island. There are also tennis courts, a mini golf and a bowling green open to visitors. Activities you can enjoy in Looe include crab fishing, sea fishing, surfing, sailing, deep-sea diving or hiring your own motor boat.

Fowey is a lovely old port and historic seafaring town. An attractive place with steep, narrow streets and alleyways that lead down to one of the best natural harbours along the south coast, Fowey exhibits a pleasant mixture of architectural styles that range from Elizabethan to Edwardian. Fowey has a good range of individual shops, galleries and restaurants, and is connected to Bodinnick by car ferry and to Polruan by foot ferry.

Bodmin Moor is about 13 miles from Polperro. Its beautiful, wild and unspoilt landscape makes it ideal for walkers. It is home to many pretty villages, includion Minions, where you can see the dramatic Cheesewring and the mystical Hurlers stone circle. Here you will also see wild ponies and witness some spectacular sunsets.

The hugely popular Eden Project is also accessible from Polperro.

"Great Value for the Family with Really Friendly and Helpful Hosts"

We loved our time at The Retreat last year. My six year old loves Cornwall and had a great time. Mark and Jo were so helpful and accommodating- especially when we kept locking ourselves out! They gave us lots of nice ideas for days out and even invited us round for dinner one evening when we had got soaked in the rain and were cold and miserable! We would definitely go back to The Retreat and it's beautiful surroundings
