The England region

Polperro, a spectacular few miles along the coast from Looe, is steeped in history. Sheltered from the ravages of time and tide in its cliff ravine, it's an enchanting jumble of cottages, each one unmistakably the work of a Cornish

Wending your way through the traffic-free streets to the small harbour, you're treading the paths where barrows of fish were once carted and, under cover of night, brandy casks and tobacco bales were carried into their hideouts. Make no mistake, this peaceful fishing cove, mellow Polperro, was once a thriving centre for the area's smuggling.

Wagonloads of contraband left here, some heading across Bodmin Moor en route to London. The 'free traders' have long since sailed into folk history and the shining shoals of pilchards have gone, but a visit to the smuggling museum brings this rich heritage back to life.

Packed tightly into a steep valley on either side of the River Pol, the quaint colour-washed cottages and twisting streets offer surprises at every turn: the Saxon and Roman bridges, the famous House on Props, the old Watch House, the fish quay, and the 16th century house where Dr. Jonathan Couch lived, naturalist and grandfather of the celebrated writer Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch.

With its protected inner harbour full of colourful boats. Polperro is still a working fishing village, although tourism provides the main source of income. Attractions include a Museum of Smuggling and a Model Village.

Polperro

Pulling into Polperro from the sea is an unforgettable experience, especially when you've caught a basket full of fish! Fishing trips or pure pleasure cruises are easy to arrange from the quayside. Or take the cliff path to explore the secluded smuggling coves of Talland and Lantivet Bay.

One of the most popular places in Cornwall, the village of Polperro is undoubtedly one of the prettiest.

“Beautiful location, love to stay again”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2012

Harbour studio was an original feature of Polperro. It is in a lovely location in the village sitting right on the harbour. It is a small but beautifully formed cottage. We have an 11 and 9 year old so a good size for us 4. The balcony is a feature that we used to sit and watch the harbour and other visitors and relax after the days of visiting other wonderful parts of Cornwall. I wouldn't recommend to familys with big kids as it would feel very cramped. There is a dedicated car parking space in the main car park 700m away. We did utilise Alan and his tow quad bike to take the luggage down which was a good use of money. There are plenty of wonderful places to eat and to buy ice cream. We would definately book again to stay at the Habour Studio but for now we have some lovely memories and beautiful pictures.

“Great cottage. Great location. Great village. Great Holiday.”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

Polperro is one of the most quaint, picturesque villages in cornwall and this cottage is nestled right in the heart of the town. Easy access to shops, restaurants(chippy across the road is recommended), pubs (try the Old Mill on a wednesday night when the fisherman's choir sing), but Harbour Studio still feels private and tucked away enough to make you feel like you're one of the locals. We cosied up by the log fire some nights, and drank red wine on the balcony on others, watching the ducks and the lone swan parade up to the harbour as the tide came in, or watching passing tourists across the harbour sneak a jealous little look at us sat quite smugly on our balcony. The cottage was well equipped, clean, tidy and cosy as well as spacious, and has a good shower/bath for after you've had a day at the beach or a long walk along the cliffs and the comfiest memory foam bed. When we come back to Polperro this will be the first place we look at for availability.

“Best location in Polperro”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2012

This gorgeous little cottage was such a surprise. The photos on the ad really don't do it justice. The rooms were beautiful, the kitchen was well stocked and the location could not be beat. Your balcony opens up to the harbor and you can hear The Props running down to the beach as you fall asleep. The swans swim up to the kitchen window begging for your bread crumbs. The place was like a little fairy tale! I had been to Polperro before and always wondered who the lucky people staying in that place with all the windows and the deck over the harbor were. I never imagined that it would be me, and for such an affordable price! To sum it up, I LOVE this place and I will be back.
