Thank you for your valued feedback. Polperro is typical of many historic harbour villages in Cornwall, it wasn't designed for cars. This is just one of the reasons it is so picturesque and so popular with our guests because relaxing is so easy - in fact inevitable! We clearly explain this on the website and to make life easier for guests we send detailed arrival instructions which include, especially for those staying by the harbour itself, information regarding the luggage taxi services which operate in the village. As you now know the extra little bit of effort required when you arrive is paid back ten-fold while you soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the many pubs and restaurants Polperro has to offer. We look forward to you returning soon.
