Elevated Polperro accommodation with views of the harbour & village

Picturesque fishing village Polperro on the south east Cornish coast is thought by many to be one of Cornwall's most beautiful coastal villages. Situated between Looe and Fowey, Polperro's little harbour is framed by cliffs. The village is reached down a winding road off the A387 from Looe leading through the steep wooded valley. Polperro's narrow roads are no bigger than footpaths in places, so there is restricted access for cars. Tourists are asked to park on the outskirts at the northern edge of the village, and walk the half-mile route into the village centre. Across the summer season an electric trolley, minibus or horse bus services are available into the village. If you are staying in a B&B, hotel, holiday home or apartment in the village you will usually be amongst the few granted access by car. Check with individual accommodations on village access when booking.

The maze of narrow streets in the village centre and the old village area around the harbour contain many excellent inns, cafes, restaurants, small galleries and shops selling crafts, pottery, jewellery and gifts. Polperro is a real champion of Cornish local produce and fresh fish straight from the catch. You'll find a fish market in the old village around the harbour.

Attractions & Festival

Attractions in the village include the Polperro Museum, detailing the fishing and smuggling heritage of the area, and the Polperro Model Village which is a replica of the village itself, complete with a model railway. Visit the village in mid to late June and enjoy Polperro Festival events which include live music and comedy, a carnival procession and a variety of stalls and activities.

Coastal Walking & Beaches

Much of the coastline and beaches around Polperro and Looe is cared for by the National Trust. The South West Coast Path along this unspoilt coast is particularly scenic, offering a variety of coastal walking opportunities for all abilities. The coast path stretches for five miles between Polperro and Looe, taking in beautiful Talland Bay en-route. In Polperro village there is a small, sheltered sandy beach with a famous naturally formed tidal swimming pool nestling in the rocks behind the Netloft in Polperro harbour. At Talland Bay, just 1.5 miles east of Polperro there are two small beaches great for rock pools, and one is sandy. Unspoilt cliff downland features along the South West Coast Path between Polperro and Talland.

Where to Stay

Accommodation choice in unspoilt Polperro includes charming fisherman's and smuggler's cottages, luxury lodges, award-winning holiday homes and in between Polperro and Looe sit great family holiday villages with all inclusive leisure and entertainment facilities. Several elevated holiday homes, B&Bs and small hotels are available in the village centre.
