Opposite the beach and close to the harbour, this three storey captain’s cottage is truly unique.

Opposite the beach and close to the harbour, this three storey captain’s cottage is truly unique.

With superb views over the pretty harbour and sandy beach of Polperro, this extensive and beautiful 3 storey 18th-century double-fronted captain’s cottage has retained many original features and seafaring memorabilia and offers excellent facilities, with each bedroom boasting its own en-suite bath/shower room. Set as the end house in a sunny row, on the Cornish coastal path, with its own furnished garden, it is just moments from the harbour, beach (opposite) and wide variety of restaurants, forming an ideal base for a family seaside holiday. Polperro itself is a delightful little fishing port, with whitewashed cottages lining narrow alleys, and an assortment of shops selling local crafts and freshly caught seafood, together with a wide selection of characterful pubs and restaurants. The sheltered bays of Talland, Lantivet and Lantic all offer excellent swimming and bathing against a backdrop of towering cliffs, whilst the scenic Cornish Coastal path winds right by the holiday cottage, leading visitors through stunning scenery, much of which is National Trust land. The abundance of vineyards, orchards and gardens in the region are a tribute to the mild climate, with the spectacular Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan within half an hour’s drive. Equidistant is the ancient fishing port of Mevagissey, its double harbour a colourful array of traditional vessels and pleasure craft. For those who can bear to tear themselves away from the coast, there are many wonderful attractions further inland – such as Bodmin Moor and the slate caverns near St Neot. Plymouth 25 miles. Fishing, sailing, riding, tennis and golf available locally. Shops 250 yards, pubs within a few minutes’ walk.

    This cottage is in a great location with sea views from almost every window and it was very clean, what let's it down however is the fact its in need of a refurb. The furniture and soft furnishings such as cushions and bedding is looking tired and dated and the bathrooms were also very dated. For a house of this price and given the competition in the rental market it needs a little modernisation. We love Cornwall but Polperro is also in need of a little modernisation, needs a good deli and less shops selling plastic tat and chintz.. Also the dog poo is depressing...I think we would stay again for the views of the harbour alone however...
