Lovely half term stay
We had a wonderful stay in Waterside Cottage. The cottage was well equipped and just right for myself, my husband and our seven year old. Beds were really comfortable with beautiful bedding! My son loved the games cupboard which kept us entertained for hours. We were blessed with amazing weather and loved Polperro, and the coastal path. The Three Pilchards and Blue Peter both amazing pubs within 30 seconds walk! Emma was the perfect host and easily contactable with any queries. Thank you Emma for the use of your lovely cottage!
A fabulous place to visit
Great place lots of lovely restaurants try the Nelson restaurant for dinner it’s fabu
Very Quaint Cottage
The cottage is in a great location close to the centre of Polperro, the harbour and the coastal path. Polperro is a lovely fishing village with lots of shops and good eating places.
Perfectly situated by the harbour!
We loved our stay in Waterside Cottage in Polperro. The cottage is perfectly situated overlooking the inner harbour, and only a stone's throw from both the Blue Peter Inn and the Three Pilchards. We ate in the latter almost every night and hardly scratched the surface of the menu!
The cottage itself was absolutely spotless and very comfortable, and is only 100 metres or so from the start of the Coastal Footpath to Lantic Bay, Polruan and Fowey, with the one in the direction of Talland Bay and Looe being in sight on the other side of the harbour.
Parking in the public carpark at the top of the village wasn't a problem at all, was very reasonable at £40 for the week, and the walk down to Waterside Cottage went some way towards counteracting the lovely meals we ate in the Three Pilchards!
We only had a couple of showery days, and on those we drove to Fowey to do some shopping and visit Pinky Murphy's.
Beautifully positioned cottage.
My family and I had a brief but relaxing time in Waterside Cottage, Polperrro. This property couldn't have been more better placed giving you a real feel of the atmosphere, both day and night.
I would like to add a special note of thanks to the property owner Emma, who showed both kindness and empathy towards our unforeseen personal circumstances just prior to our holiday. Thank you
Very Cute & Very Comfy
Stayed here for a week.

Talland Bay is along the coast and can accessed by road or by a beautiful 1.5 mile cliff walk.
