Polperro

The picture perfect harbour village of Polperro nestles in a sheltered valley on the south coast of Cornwall between its more famous neighbours Looe and Fowey. Dating back to the 13th century you can feel the history of the village all around you. This is a true Cornish hidden gem.

A real delight

Polperro is a beautiful little port town...... maybe not quite as picturesque as (let's say) Port Isaac....but much more redolent of the Cornish fishing village of your dreams... delightfully set out, the walk into the village really sucks you in to its charms. Highly recommended for a 2-3 hour trip.

Few cars come down the twisting lanes of this village adding to its lost in time feel, but Polperro is also a working fishing harbour, although it was once reknowned for smuggling. This village seems to have it all, a sandy beach, caves and rock pools, a harbour with ducks and swans, stunning views, coastal walks, plus pubs, cafes and shops.
