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.

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.

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

The neighbourhood

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.
