A splendid house, full of character having sweeping views of the Fowey estuary, extensive patio areas with BBQ and very close to the car park.

A wonderful home for a coastal escape with family, friends and young guests this abode and its abundance of cosy corners, spectacular views and communal areas is perfect for creating holiday magic. Stroll into the local village of Polruan and work up an appetite at the tidal beach before filling hungry tummies at one of the tasty eateries and hopping on the passenger ferry to Fowey for an afternoon of exploring. Whether you fancy a relaxing retreat with slow mornings or a summer getaway with nights under the stars, this property is just perfect for spending memorable quality time with loved ones.

Step through the courtyard and into the hub of the house. The kitchen is a sleek space which is well-equipped for meal times big or small, formal or relaxed. On arrival, make use of the coffee machine and perk up to begin making exciting plans for the days ahead. Once settled, head through to the fabulous open-plan lounge/diner where the corner sofa sits in front of the wood burner - the most inviting spot in the house. Warm chilly toes and put your feet up for a spot of peace. For a moment of solitude, hunt out one of the many window seats with beautiful views across the water and beyond or find yourself outside on one of the patio areas (reached by climbing steps) and unwind in the fresh air. Eight charming bedrooms sit across the first and second floors and are welcoming spots in which to rest tired eyes and enjoy a good night's sleep in this quiet village. Freshen up in the family bathroom with a shower or a soak in the bath - this might be just what you need if you have been busy adventuring in the great outdoors!

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

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.

Really beautiful house with excellent facilities. Very well kitted out. Lots of good outdoor space. Comfortable beds and good bathrooms. Gorgeous views. Adorable window seat. Stylish and homely at the same time. A bit of a walk uphill from the quay and steep stairs up to the master bedroom.

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.
