The West Country / 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.
The Polperro area
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.

This suited us perfectly. The living/ dining room and the bedroom are a decent size and neatly decorated but it was the extras that we appreciated, and I don't just mean the cream tea that was waiting for us on arrival. The kitchen has more than just the basic equipment, even a decent set of knives, there is wifi, plenty of books and guides and a whole cupboard full of games. The only downside was the slog up from the carpark, not that far but 45 degrees. Loved Polperro and if we were the sort of people who went anywhere twice we would be very happy to book again.

This small but very well formed holiday rental was ideal for a quiet get away. The place was extremely well equipped and felt like it was set up as a lovely hotel room, with the extra space of a self-catering residence. The hill to the village is good exercise! However, it is a convenient location to enjoy the quiet and attractive Polperro, it is also well situated to explore the South Cornwall coastal region. We really enjoyed our stay and thank Mark and Jo for their hospitality.
