About this Property

A pleasant stroll along the traffic free Warren soon brings you to Nepenthe where, from its elevated position, the visitor can enjoy magnificent Channel and harbour views, some of the best in Polperro. This Grade II listed cottage has the charm of a bygone age. The large kitchen diner and the sunny sitting room both have mutli-fuel burners to keep you warm on those cold winter nights! The comfortable rooms are functionally furnished and the cottage is ideal if you are seeking to experience the simple and quieter side of life. The icing on the cake is to peep out of any window, which never fails to reward and soothe the visitor with water and harbour views. You will even be greeted by a lovely welcome pack on arrival.


Well-equipped kitchen/diner with slate floor, ceramic hob, built-under electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave/grill/convection combi-oven, washer/dryer, dishwasher, slow-cooker, Bosch-Tassimo coffee dispenser, dining table to seat six, two painted wicker sofas, multi-fuel burner and flat screen TV.
