    Description

    Background

    Harbourside is a former net and sails loft thought to date back to the early 1700's, used by the local fishing community, and probably used in the smuggling trade. It is now a Grade II listed cottage on Polperro quayside.

    The only remaining records of the building go back about eighty years to 1934, when the building was used as a dwelling originally known as The Cabin. From that time, the cottage has passed through a number of ownerships, until I purchased it in May 2015. The cottage had been renamed 'Harbourside' in 1955.


    The Cottage

    Harbourside enjoys unparalleled views of the Inner Harbour, and is also a perfect base from which to explore the village, the South West Coast walking trail, access to the nearby beach, and local boat trips out to sea, or along the coast to the nearby towns of Polruan (for Fowey) and Looe.

    The cottage is accessed from the quay, and leads into the cosy dining area. Further along the hall is the kitchen, the second bedroom containing an adult sized bunk bed for two, and the bathroom/toilet. The kitchen has an electric oven and halogen hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, kettle, toaster, and all necessary kitchen utensils.

    Upstairs there are two rooms; the Living Room, with open fire, flat screen TV and DVD player, and a window seat overlooking the harbour. From here there is a door leading out onto the balcony, which has a table and chairs and a great view of the harbour. Next door is the main bedroom containing a double bed, and another window seat with the same beautiful views.

    Internet access is provided.

    Unfortunately and regrettably, due to the age and construction of the building, it is not suitable for wheelchair access.

    Parking

    Parking is at an absolute premium in the village. The roads around the harbour are far too narrow to allow access by vehicles - which is part of the charm - and the roads which are accessible have very little in the way of parking spaces. However the Cottage does come with its own dedicated space for one vehicle, located about 5 minute's walk away at Violet's Farm up Landaviddy Lane, and this is free to use by cottage guests. However I should warn you that this is up a fairly steep hill, so is not best suited to the elderly or unfit!

    For the purposes of unloading luggage, it is perfectly acceptable to drive down Lansallos Street to the slipway at the edge of the harbour for five to ten minutes at the beginning and end of your stay. There is also a luggage taxi available at reasonable rates - contact details available on request!

    The cottage is rated at four stars by VisitEngland.com

    Location description

    Polperro is a small fishing village on the South Coast of Cornwall, steeped in a history of fishing and smuggling. The narrow streets filled with craft shops and art galleries converge on a delightful harbour with fishing boats, pleasure boats and yachts. There are numerous bars and restaurants in the village. The village sits on the South West Coast Path, ideal for coastal walks with breathtaking views, to Looe in the east, and Polruan (for Fowey) in the west.

    It is also possible to take pleasure boat trips from the small jetty by the beach, to Looe or Fowey, or out to sea, either fishing or looking for marine life such as seals, porpoises or basking sharks.

    Other activities

    A wonderful base for walking/hiking, the village is located on the South West Coastal Path. Take a boat trip from the harbour to neighbouring towns (Looe, Fowey) or for a sea trip (fishing, viewing dolphins, basking sharks, seals, and more).

    Local events

    Many local art galleries in the village, live music at the village pubs at the weekend, museum of fishing and smuggling.

    Tourist attractions

    A short drive from The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, and Lanhydrock National Trust house. Also neighbouring villages and towns such as Fowey, Looe, Charlestown, Mevagissey, Lostwithiel, and St Austell.

    Directions

    From the end of the M5, take the A38 to Plymouth, crossing the Tamar Bridge into Cornwall. Keep on the A38 towards Liskeard, however at the roundabout at Trerulefoot, take the first exit (A374) towards Looe. About a mile along this road there is a right turn signposted for Looe (A387). Follow this road for six miles, passing through Hessenford until you enter Looe. Follow the main road which bears right across the bridge and then up the hill out of Looe. Keep on this road, and eventually you will reach Polperro.
