Seaside holiday house sleeping 10 for families and groups of friends, for weekends and special occasions in Polperro
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Polperro House, Polperro, Cornwall, sleeps 2 - 10 in 5 bedrooms.
4 night minimum stay.
Polperro House has a south facing garden with breathtaking views of the historic harbour and out to sea, enjoying its own micro-climate and the warm airflow of the Gulf Stream making the winters very mild. With the sun arcing over the garden from early morning until she sets over the western promontory you will find breakfasts drifting leisurely into lunch and morning coffee being replaced by a light lunchtime rosé, which before you know it may give way to a G&T at sundowners.
The garden or patio is 33 feet long and 24 feet wide. Outside there’s an 8-seater, glass-topped rattan table. You can sit on the swinging seat or on the bench seats by the patio wall to take in the ambiance and eavesdrop on the gentle goings-on of harbour life below.
Polperro House also boasts the advantage of being only 5 minutes drive to Looe and its sandy beach and the Fowey inlet, (pronounced Foy) being 10 minutes in the opposite direction. Polperro’s own small beach exposed at low tide outside the harbour wall boasts Willy Wilcox’s Cave and the tidal bathing pool which will delight adults and kids alike. The Coastal Path offers a string of 10 beaches and coves within 5 miles of Polperro.
There are over 20 places offering food and drinks in Polperro which is still a working fishing village, so you are more likely to find a fresh crab roll than a mass produced burger. There are many events throughout the year, one being the Polperro Festival in mid June. A week of great free music and activities with the election of the new Mayor which is a far cry from the traditional!
Polperro is ideally situated for daytrips to some truly world-class West Country destinations and other fascinating towns and villages. But whether you’ve spent your day in Sennen Cove at Lands End, perusing the Tate Modern in Saint Ives, having a Michelin Star lunch in Port Isaac, brushing up your eco-credentials at The Eden Project, scaring the kids with tales of the Beast of Bodmin or catching a great break at Widemouth Bay on your board; it’s all within a couple of hours of Polperro House and you can still make it home for sundowners on the terrace.
