Great location and view

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, looking over to Fowey. Felt very welcomed on arrival, and we were offered help with our luggage. Close to some local pubs, the Lugger Inn is great for food. No parking available, however we did not find this an issue and paid for parking just down at the quay, which was only a few pound a day. Crumpets tea room also serve a great breakfast. Would definitely recommend this accommodation and hope to stay again! Thanks!

Lovely, unique maritime themed property, rustic charm and family feel.

  • 4 of 5


-Large rooms

-Welcoming family

-Lovely location, friendly village.

Could be addressed:

- en suite is old and shabby, shower cubicle looks like it’s from a 70’s motor home.

- no central heating, it’s installed but no option to turn on.

- tiny single electric heater in the bedroom making the air very dry.

- single glazed windows

- memory foam mattress gave my partner a frozen back & neck the following morning.

- steps leading to property need more maintenance to scrub the moss away - definitely a health and safety hazard.

Overall 4 out of 5, would stay here again for sure. Thanks again :)

Penthouse in the quirky seaside tow

  • 5 of 5

Polruan and its sister city Fowey comfortably take you back 200 years on the steep hillsides flanking the Fowey River. Be prepared for many, many steep steps and narrow roads. The Polmarine Penthouse is the top floor of a waterfront residence. There is plenty of space and a useful kitchen. The glass sunroom/conservancy and patio have amazing views of the water and Fowey across the way. Pack good walking shoes and a rain jacket for both the town and the seaside trails. Limited availability of parking and steep steps are the only downside but if you come to Polruan, you are coming for the adventure so be prepared.

A quirky gem

  • 4 of 5

We only stayed at Polmarine for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The waterside location was perfect and being able to swim directly from the property would have been brilliant if the weather had been kinder. the only negative comment I think I could make is that it would have been nice to have a proper table to sit at inside so that the views could be fully enjoyed whilst eating. We have been to Polruan on previous occasions and were aware that it is on a steep hillside, but for other guests I think the nature of the steep steps to access the property should be highlighted. Overall though a great location and apartment.

Car: necessary

Polruan lies on the banks of the River Fowey and is the quieter of the two villages, there are two pubs and two cafes in the village offering a variety of meals. Beautiful scenic walks around the village in particular the Hall Walk can be enjoyed. Many boat trips are available, in particular a sailing experience along the coastline aboard 'Pettifox' is a must.
