Sitting right on the waters edge in the hub of this traditional, friendly fishing village which offers  local shops as well as a handful of eateries offering local produce.

Look out over the harbour from this delightful holiday home for 12, which is set at the very heart of the traditional fishing village of Polruan in Cornwall. Enjoy the warm welcome of the six-bedroom, three-storey house, with its characterful yet stylish accommodation. Light the open fire and spend evenings at home or enjoy your proximity to pubs and restaurants if you favour nights out. Make the most of the quayside position to absorb the far-reaching estuary views, as well as exploring the village’s windy streets and independent shops. You can also take the ferry over to the elegant port of Fowey.

Cross the private terrace to enter your attractive holiday home via its reception hall. Make your way into the lounge to bask in the heat of the open fire, watch TV or choose a DVD or book from the selection. Enjoy music in here too – or in the dining room – via the speakers connected to the iPod docking station. Cook meals for your party in the stylish kitchen, with its breakfast bar, where you can pause for a cup of coffee or tea before beginning your preparations. Serve up in the dining room against a backdrop of sea views then after dinner find a quiet moment to yourself in the study, which also looks over the water. Find a utility room adjacent to the kitchen and a shower room also on the ground floor. Head up to the first floor to discover more sea views and three bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms. Three additional bedrooms are on the second floor: two of these have en-suite bath or shower rooms and two are connecting, making them ideal for families. There is also a family bathroom. Take breakfast, lunch or dinner out on your paved terrace on warm days. Light the BBQ out here and gaze out to sea.

We had a lovely stay at Polruan summer 2023. The location suited the entire family of all ages as it had something for everyone. From a pretty view for the elderly to crabbing for the kids on the quay. The ferry trip across the estuary was a delightful way to travel. Going on to enjoy boat trips and boat hire in Fowey. The pub fish and chips were dRead moreelicious and a stones throw from the house. The surrounding pub got a little rowdy at night but as we were on holiday we did not mind. Fun time Hide
