The Experience

Polruan is a very old fishing and boat building village surrounded by water on three sides. Your cottage is near the Blockhouse, built in the 14th century to protect the harbour from pirates and the French. The bedrooms are small but very comfortable with king-size beds; one can become a twin room, the other has beautiful harbour views, and they share a bathroom. Upstairs is the living area with more views: the village to one side, the boat-studded estuary on the other.

Join the South West Coast path 50 yards from the door for bracing walks: to Polperro in just over two hours (depending on how fit you are) or further, and then get a taxi or bus back. Catch the foot ferry to Fowey from the village for independent shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. In August the Royal Regatta will be right outside your door.

You’ll find supermarkets in Saltash, Liskeard or St Austell but you can top up at a good general store in the village. Settle by the wood-burner with books, games, Smart TV and music or wander down to one of the pubs in the village for dinner. You can do without your car for most things.

We had a wonderful weeks stay at September cottage which has the most fabulous views of the river and Fowey from the lounge window. The property is comprehensively equipped and Ann your host will ensure you have all the information you could possibly need to ensure you make the most of your stay.

Lesley, Ashford Kent

This is our 2nd visit to September Cottage and we are about to book a 3rd! The cottage is exactly as it’s described and the photographs are not trying to hide anything. The view from the lounge window can be seen from the sofa and the dining table. The only problem you’ll have is deciding if you want to watch the boats, the TV or the crackling log burner! We didn’t miss having outdoor space as the window opens wide enough to feel you are outside and the harbour is nearby. Ann is very contactable if you have any questions about the property and there’s plenty of info regarding the Fowey area.

Rebekah, London

We had a wonderful stay in this charming cottage which provides all one needs for a restful and enjoyable experience away from the busy hub of normal life, and we hope to return for a longer stay next time. The cottage is nicely decorated, and is well equipped, containing all one needs, with 2 bedrooms (the main bedroom has a huge and very comfy bed), a small compact bathroom and kitchen and a lovely dining/sittingroom area upstairs with amazing views over the Fowey estuary where one can sit for ages watching the boats come and go. It's a great location for walks also. Thank you September Cottage!

Candida, London

The cottage is an a great location, in the heart of the village, close to the water and with a great view from the living room up the river from which to watch boats coming and going. We really liked the light and bright feel of the rooms, simple, but attractive furniture and very comfortable beds, too.

David, St. Albans

A beautiful little cottage in a fabulous location away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Ideal location for walks along this wonderful coastline. The cottage itself is equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay feel like home from home. The views of Fowey harbour from this property are superb especially if your a lover of boats. All in all a great place to stay.

Richard, Burton- upon - Trent

September Cottage is just as described, and is a beautiful cottage with amazing views of the estuary from both the living room and one of the bedrooms. There are great walks along the coast path, and Fowey is just a short ferry ride. A great base for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Jon, Leeds

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in September Cottage which is very well equipped and with extremely comfortable beds. On our next visit we will definitely book for longer. The position of the Cottage gives you a fabulous view of the Estuary both from the Sitting Room and one of the bedrooms. It is a just a short stroll away from the tiny harbour where the passenger ferry leaves for Fowey and also where both of the Pubs are situated.

Sarah, Ringwood

We had a wonderful winter’s stay at September cottage. It’s really cosy with the wood burning stove & beautiful views. It was equipped with everything that we needed. It’s a great location, within walking distance to a great bakery, shop & good pub. Then a memorable ferry trip to Fowey for anything else. It was the perfect place for our young family to enjoy a week away. Ann was super helpful before & during our stay. Would highly recommend.

Freya, Hungerford

A beautiful cottage set in a stunning location. The views from the lounge and bedroom are just breathtaking, we spent every morning just sitting watching the boats in the bay. The cottage is so cosy and homely and has everything you need. We loved the wood burner in the lounge and the modern kitchen and bathroom. It felt like a home from home. It’s just a short walk from Polruan centre and we also caught the ferry over to Fowey a number of times which was very convenient. The owner could not have been more helpful, we cannot wait to go back! We highly recommend you visit this wonderful place.

Abigail, Leicester

Our second visit to this comfortable cottage in the unspoilt village of Polruan and we wil visit again. A warm and well furnished interior, with well equipped kitchen with spectacular views out onto the harbour from the upstairs sitting room. Very close to the South West Coast Path and inland walking routes; and historic gardens and houses. Two local pubs - food at The Lugger is very good - a cafe that supplies delicous take out sandwiches; an excellent bakery and a small well stocked supermarket supplies all one would need.

Caroline, Clevedon

If you have never been to Polruan we would recommend this cottage as an ideal base, especially in Winter. It is warm and cosy and beautifully equipped. The views from the cottage onto the harbour are wonderful, you literally feel you are at sea! We enjoyed the fabulous walks along the coastal path and catching the boat across to Fowey. We took the car too - the ferry is next to the home of Daphne du Mauriers' son. You get used to the one track lanes and quickly come to realise it ensures the peace of the place. Just magical.

Jacqueline, Ascot

I liked the slightly quirky layout of September Cottage, with fabulous open water views you could sit all day and watch the boats and birds coming and going from the Fowey River. Approached on foot down a fairly steep hill, you'll improve your fitness but its worth it. Polruan is well served with pubs, cafe and little shops so if you wish you can go carless all week and stay easily local.

Valerie, Sawday's inspector

Welcoming calm, superb views, peaceful and friendly Polruan. Great walking everywhere locally, along coast and river. Factor in last time for passenger ferry or navigating narrow flower filled lanes for longer journey home. Loved our time at September Cottage

Polruan is a quiet little village on the opposite side of the water from Fowey. It is approached along long, winding country lanes or by ferry. It has a couple of pubs which do good food, a tea shop, a bakery and the general store. You're on the South West Coast Path for fabulous walking. Try Hall Walk which will take you to Daphne du Maurier’s house and an excellent pub, the Old Ferry Inn.
