The Experience

Polruan is a peaceful village on the Fowey estuary. Your cottage, down a quiet lane, is even more tranquil. A scallop canopy crowns the doorway; inside is lovely, all cream walls, navy checks and country-smart furniture. The bedrooms, both downstairs, are small but very comfortable with kingsize beds; one can become a twin room, the other has beautiful harbour views, and the bathroom is modern and white. Upstairs is the living area with more gorgeous views: the pretty village to one side, the boat-studded estuary on the other. Cosy evenings are guaranteed here, so settle down by the wood-burner and take your pick of board games, books and music. The little kitchen is fresh and contemporary with granite worktops and top appliances and the dining area looks onto Readymoney Cove. It’s such a great spot: the coastal path 50 yards from the door and a village to come back to, with two pubs and a tea shop. Fowey with its twinkling lights is a five-minute ferry ride; in August you have the Royal Regatta outside your door. Perfect.

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.

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.

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.

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
