Make a holiday cottage in Polperro your home away from home

Located midway between Plymouth and Newquay, Polperro is a charming fishing harbour that has won over the hearts of holidaymakers. The tiny village dates back to the 13th century and makes for a picturesque and charmingly quaint holiday destination. Sitting in a narrow cliff ravine, it has an atmosphere of time having stood still yet offers the modern holidaymaker plenty of things to see and do – indeed, Polperro's one of the most popular places in Cornwall. Close to beaches and offering easy access to the South West Coast Path, visitors choose to stay in Polperro to enjoy the great outdoors and explore many of the major attractions in Cornwall.

HomeAway has a wide variety of holiday cottages in Polperro available year round. Cottages have from two to five bedrooms and can accommodate up to eight guests. In addition to being fully furnished to a high standard, many Polperro holiday cottages offer added amenities such as a pool, tennis court, and easy access to the beach. Weekly rates start at around £450 in Polperro, which is slightly less than holiday homes in St. Austell nearby.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: The South West Coast Path is just a short walk from many of the holiday cottages in Polperro. There are several notable walks originating in Polperro, including routes to Looe and smugglers’ bay at Talland. These walks take visitors along the beautiful Cornish coastline as well as past centuries-old monasteries and other historical sights.

-Beaches: Polperro is home to its own small sandy beach and is also close to excellent beaches in Looe where HomeAway also offers holiday rentals. Many beaches in the area are suitable for swimming and allow dogs as well. Polperro Beach features café and toilet facilities for added convenience. Portwrinkle is one of the most popular beaches in the area and is suitable for families and surfers alike.

-Family attractions: Families staying in a Polperro holiday cottage would be remiss if they didn’t visit the Polperro Model Village. This fun attraction appeals to visitors of all ages and provides some insight into old Cornish folklore. Just ten miles away in St. Austell is the Eden Project, Cornwall’s most visited site and is simultaneously entertaining and educational. Animals lovers also won’t want to miss The Monkey Sanctuary in Looe and the Porfell Wildlife Sanctuary in Liskeard, both of which are just five miles from Polperro.

-Golf: Golf courses abound in this part of Cornwall. Looe Golf Club is an inland course located a few miles away from Polperro that welcomes guests and offers stunning panoramic views of Cornwall. Also nearby is Whitsand Bay Golf Club, which has an 18-hole course that dates back to 1905. The cliff-top course is right next to the beach and will challenge even the most experienced golfer. A little further afield is Carlyon Bay Golf Club, which offers another beautiful cliff-side course.

Weather in Polperro

Polperro enjoys some of the best weather in the UK. Temperatures can hit a pleasant 20°C or more in July and August, which is a good time to hit the beach. Spring and autumn are quite mild with high temperatures well into the double-digits. Winters are chilly, but freezing temperatures are rare which makes holiday cottages in Polperro suitable for all times of year. Rain falls throughout the year, though it tends to be drier in the summer than in the winter.

Travel to Polperro

Polperro is about an hour’s drive west of Plymouth and is located a few miles off the A38. The closest airport to the fishing village is in Newquay. From here it’s possible to hire a car and make the 50-minute drive down to Polperro.

Excellant facilities and clean modern appearance of property. Very useful to have own parking space

5 of 5
No issues for the facilites, except needing the manual to use the cooker and m.wave! (but we re not technical bods- so personal issue there). Used the oven but didn't use the microwave. Nice to have adequate pans to cook with as we do nt eat out often when on holiday. Ideal for two or two and a baby toddler. Nice to be in the village community. Bathroom lovely en-suite to bedroom.

SECOND PAR NON

Hi Paul and Yvette, Sorry for the late review, as i thought i had sent one, must have done something wrong. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a truly wonderful stay in your magnificent house. Your property was far and away above my expectations, with so much room for our party of seven plus dog . We hope we left your home in the same condition as when we arrived. Now for an honest review - Upon arrival of the property we were amazed at the size of the house, it looked bigger than in the photos, once inside wow! All the rooms were of great proportions, the kitchen is large and very practical with appliances galore including dishwasher, fancy microwave, built in fridge and freezer basically everything you need, the cream teas were a nice touch Thank you. The utility room also included a self dispensing washing machine and is a great room for housing the dog cage. To finish downstairs their is a large conservatory with lovely views over the local countryside, a dining room off the kitchen with large family dinning table and finally a comfortable lounge with sofas and smart t.v etc etc. Upstairs continues with the same wow factor, with four double bedrooms, two with large en-suits and one bedroom with two singles. To finish off upstairs there is a large family bathroom including roll top bath and shower enclosure. The garden is huge, with decking area accessed from the utility including rattan dinning table and chairs, my only negative comment would be that the garden is unsecured, so dog owners be mindful. Par is a very good base for exploring the beautiful county of Cornwall. It has a chip shop, Chinese take away, Italian restaurant with views over the bay and the Ship Inn also deserves a mention with some great special boards, their are also convenient stores within easy reach. The Market every Saturday, Sunday and Wednesdays is worth a visit and is only 5 minutes away by car. Our family feel very privileged to have holidayed at this lovely large property and we would highly recommend to anyone without hesitation. Thanks Steve Robinson and Family
