Enter into the property from the rear courtyard and into the kitchen where you will find everything you need should you wish to stay in and cook for the whole family with two electric ovens, electric hob, microwave, large fridge with freezer compartment, Nespresso coffee machine and dishwasher. In the courtyard is a door to the utility room, complete with washing machine, tumble dryer and WC. Go along the hall to the lounge/diner where you can relax and enjoy views across the estuary in the comfortable and spacious room in front of the wood burner, while watching a movie on the 40” Smart TV with Blu-ray player (many DVD's provided for all ages). In the dining area is a large dining table with seating for eight. Head upstairs to the first floor where there are three bedrooms to choose from; one with a twin zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a super king on request), TV/DVD and views over the large rear garden. one with a king-size with estuary views and one bedroom with full size bunk beds with estuary views.

Going up a steep staircase and onto the second floor you will find the main bedroom with a king-size bed with estuary views and Smart TV. This bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the added benefit of a small seating area, so you can really make the most of the view over to Fowey and Bodinnick. At the front of the property is a terraced patio area with a large round table and chairs and a bench seat having glorious estuary views across to Fowey and Bodinnick.

To the rear of the property a stable door from the kitchen leads out to a quiet courtyard with steps leading to the large private rear garden which has three terraces and is equipped with two tables, one seating eight and another seating four as well as 2 loungers along with a BBQ.

Wake up and head outside to enjoy the fresh air rolling off the water. Hop on the passenger ferry to Fowey and spend a morning roaming the quirky streets before returning back to Polruan for a tasty bite to eat and a tipple or two. For beautiful botanics and a dose of the tropics, make the 16-mile journey to the Eden Project where fun facts await little ears! A spot of sea swimming and sandcastle building is a must for a family holiday and Readymoney Cove is just the spot for a day at the beach at 5 miles from home.

We are a family of 4 spending New Year 2020 at Providence House. Great spot with fabulous views from the lounge and bedrooms. You need to be fit and good walking to navigate the path to the house and up and down to the harbor. The ferry runs back and forth to Fowey even in winter. Lovely wood burner. As we were there in lockdown we spent alot of tiRead moreme in the house so the netflix and prime were a godsend. The walks along the coast are amazing. The house could do with some TLC though. Hide

Providence house is a really lovely place to stay with stunning views and as weather was very wet we were in the cottage a lot of the time and we loved it. Very homely and comfortable. Such a relaxing place to stay.

Providence House was perfect for our family's short, winter getaway because, the reception rooms are well set up and comfy, with the most stunning views and sunlight. The kitchen is well-equipped and efficient. The bedrooms were really comfortable and the underfloor heating in the bathroom very cosy. An excellent location with easy access to the coRead moreastal path, the passenger ferry and great pub food. We would return in any season and would enjoy the views from various terraces in the summer. Hide

An absolutely beautiful well equipped property with views that if anything are undersold by the pictures on the website. We never tired of watching the harbour from the front patio which has a grandstand view. Polruan is an excellent base with lots to do within easy reach.
