About the home
From the lounge window one can observe the busy comings and goings of village life, the ebb and flow of the tides and the daily spectacle of fishermen returning with their catch. The cottage itself has an ?olde world charm? with low ceilings and beams and is comfortably furnished throughout. From the front door it is only a few steps to the many popular inns, restaurants and shops that surround the harbour, whilst for the more energetic there are miles of rugged coastline and secluded beaches nearby to explore. Alternatively, Looe provides a host of diversions and the many attractions of Cornwall are easily accessible by car.

The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall is the most South Western part of the UK, benefitting from some of Britain's mildest climates, with the warming effects of the Gulf Stream, early springs and long lingering summers. This unspoilt County enjoys a dramatic landscape from rugged moorland to stunning beautiful golden beaches.
Cornwall has historically been intrinsically linked with outdoor activities. With some of the cleanest seas in Europe surrounding the County, it has always been popular for water-based activities especially surfing. North Cornwall, predominantly in and around Newquay has historically been home to many UK Surfing Championships.
Walkers are able to find extensive countryside to discover and can delight in the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain on the South West Coast Path.
This ancient and mystic Celtic County has a feeling of being a land of legend and romance. Hence artists come to Cornwall for inspiration drawn by its rugged beauty and the quality of light.
The Polperro area
Nestling in a deep sheltered valley protected by the ancient harbour is the spectacular, historic fishing village of Polperro, much favoured by artists, writers and photographers and the location for many films, due to its inspirational and truly remarkable setting. This extraordinary little village gives one the impression of being caught in a time warp and is truly an area of outstanding beauty. Polperro retains almost all of its 17th century architectural charm and is still a working fishing port, an activity believed to have been uninterrupted, since the 13th Century. You can sample the local catch in one of the many good restaurants and pubs. Fishing trips and pleasure cruises are easily accessible from the quay. Wending your way through the narrow traffic-free streets you are treading the paths where barrows of fish were once carted and, under the cover of night, brandy casks and tobacco bales were carried to their hideouts. Make no mistake, this peaceful cove was once a thriving centre for the area’s smuggling exploits and achieved great notoriety in the 18th and early 19th centuries. The Polperro Heritage Museum is a mine of information. Transport into the village from the main car park is either by horse and cart, motorised tram or your own two feet, the harbour is approximately half a mile away. Some vehicle access is possible, but not to all parts of the village.
