The property

Boasting captivating views across the fishing harbour towards Fowey, is this characterful and charming cottage, The Lookout.

This idyllic accommodation is perfect for a refreshing break to this corner of Cornwall, where a tranquil retreat is promised by exploring the village’s maze of unspoilt lanes, the harbour which is a haven for yachts and the surrounding Polperro Heritage Coast.

You and your family will be delighted by the seamless blend of character and style the interior exudes, with carefully selected furnishings complementing the characterful features of the property.

Set over three floors, which is typical of a Cornish property within the area, you will find the open-plan living room set on the top floor, designed to make the most of the picturesque views. Here, you can look forward to planning the next day’s adventure with your loved ones and curling up on the window seat to soak up the views with a cup of tea in hand.

Venture down the staircase to the first and ground floors, where two bedrooms await you after a wonderful day exploring.

The first floor houses a brightly decorated double bedroom with king-sized bed, whilst the ground floor offers a twin bedroom boasting ample storage to house your personal belongings.

Look forward to winding your way around the idyllic streets of Polruan, where you will be delighted to find a couple of pubs with traditional Cornish charm, a café and a well-stocked village shop for picking up the essentials.

It’s just a minute’s walk to the harbour, where you can hop on the ferry and spend the day exploring bustling Fowey, or if you are feeling active, the South West Coast Path is literally on your front step, leading the way to some of Cornwall’s most spectacular and secluded beaches.

Attractions within the surrounding area that will suit a group of all ages and tastes include the Fowey Aquarium, the Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre and the famous Eden Project, which are just a short car journey away.

The Lookout promises a wonderful hideaway for those seeking a relaxing and rejuvenating break.

About the location


Polperro 6.5 miles; Looe 10 miles; Lostwithiel 10 miles.

Polruan is a small fishing village situated on a steep hill on the Fowey estuary, made famous by the author Daphne du Maurier. It remains unspoilt and retains the atmosphere of an old boat building community and has a small beach. The Polruan chain tower known as Polruan Blockhouse is one of only five known to exist in England, and is a small structure built beside a river or harbour to house the mechanism for raising and lowering a defensive chain to prevent the passage of ships in times of danger. It and the chain tower on the opposite bank of the River Fowey are the earliest chain towers to have been constructed. The village has a Post Office, local store, gift shop and pubs. A five minute ferry ride will take you to Fowey, with a range of sophisticated shops and restaurants. In August, the Fowey Regatta is a fun-filled week of activities and events, including RNLI displays, a carnival, spectacular firework displays and a display of classic yachts.
