This Grade II listed, former fisherman’s cottage sits in a quiet lane in this pretty Cornish fishing village, just minutes from the historic working harbour and village centre. Polperro has all that you imagine of a quaint fishing village, and this holiday cottage sits within the narrow winding streets that are home to fishermen’s pubs, galleries, bakeries, cafés, restaurants and shops selling locally caught seafood and local crafts. This house provides the ideal base for that special Cornish holiday. The historic fishing port of Looe is also close by and can be reached along the dramatic coastal path. It has a superb sandy beach providing an excellent day out for the family. Why not visit the local renowned fish market, which sells fresh fish straight off the boats in the harbour, for that special evening meal? The sheltered bays of Talland and Lantic all offer excellent swimming and bathing against the backdrop of the dramatic Cornish coastline. The scenic Cornish Coastal Path can be accessed nearby, leading visitors through stunning scenery, much of which is National Trust land. The famous seafaring town of Fowey, once the home of Daphne Du Maurier, can also be reached by catching the regular ferry across the Fowey River. The abundance of vineyards, orchards and gardens in the regional are a tribute to the mild climate, with the spectacular Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan within half an hour’s drive. Equidistant is the ancient fishing village of Mevagissey, its double harbour a colourful array of traditional vessels and pleasure craft. For those who can bear to tear themselves away from the coast, there are many wonderful attractions further inland, such as Bodmin Moor and the slate caverns near St Neot. Plymouth is 25 miles away. Fishing, sailing, horse riding, tennis and golf are available locally. Beach 100 yards. Shop 100 yards, pub 50 yards, restaurant 25 yards.
