Sitting right on the waters edge in the hub of this traditional, friendly fishing village which offers a plethora of local shops, ice cream parlours 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.

With its beautiful , ever changing, outlook across the estuary to Fowey, this was always going to be a hit. Could you live here? Easily. Spacious yet retaining a coziness and comfortable feel . Clean inside and out- the local council rightly proud of their gem of a village. Of the two pubs? The Russell - proper job.

House is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. Perfect for three couples, we all had privacy, but enjoyed cooking dinner together in the gorgeous big kitchen, and eating together at the long table. Loved the powerful showers!

(Note that the Read morewalk back up the hill to the car park is a challenge, and the roads into Polruan, and in the village itself, are narrow.) Had a wonderful holiday! Hide

Wonderful location with a little tidal beach in front and foot ferry to Fowey nearby. Some noise at night from the pub next door but to be expected if you want a central location.
