  • "Polruan is a unique and beautiful location with it's picture postcard cottages and steeply sloping and quaint alleys."

    The view from our fisherman's cottage over the Fowey estuary was wonderful. Always something to see. I personally enjoyed the exercise and the views walking to the carpark at the top of the hill. Worth it though for such a peaceful and beautiful holiday location. Will come again.

  • "What an amazing place you have, we loved staying there."

    Everything we needed was provided, including your lovely welcome pack. The location was amazing and looking out the window on the harbour was perfect. We also slept amazingly the bed was so comfy, we normally struggle to sleep the first few nights, but we slept like babies! Thank you for an amazing stay!

    30 then you can't get back to sleep for the Sea Gulls which we know can't be helped it goes with the location, but other than that spot on.

    Great location. Clean, bright and just as described.

  • "The holiday was great, the apartment was lovely and spacious and well laid out."

    It was very noisy with the boat yard being just 20m from the bed room window. generally the noise was drowned out by the 100 seagulls nesting on the boat yard roof. The rear terrace area would benefit from a good jet wash and tidy up. It seemed they had spent a lot on the finishing's in the apartment but it was let down by sink taps and shower which were rubbish, The hot water in kitchen would just trickle out. Putting this all to one side the accommodation was great. Lovely holiday.

    You did mention the parking at the top of the hill. Maybe just emphasise the length and very steep incline to walk up to the car. Not easy to with mobility issues Otherwise great break

  • "Great place to stay, really lovely touches when we arrived like milk, tea, fudge, so we didn't have to rush out to the shop."

    Apartment was really clean, with nice views of the harbour from the lounge and main bedroom. There is a steep walk up to the car park (which only accepts cash, and doesn't give change) but you can unload/load the car on the road of the apartment which is really helpful. Really lovely place to stay in a relaxed atmosphere.

  • "Lovely location in Polruan, much quieter than Fowey but easily accessible via the passenger ferry that goes back and forth all day."

    The accommodation is very spacious and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The main street in Polruan is very steep and long so I would say only suitable for those who are fairly fit.

    Comfortable bed and clean surroundings. Would highly recommend. The harbour is just beautiful and easy to go out and explore from the cottage either by walking or getting the passenger ferry. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

  • "We had a wonderful relaxing week at Glanmor."

    The apartment was immaculate, spacious, well designed and well equipped. We enjoyed the views over the estuary and the proximity to the local shops and ferry to Fowey, and fantastic walks along the coast path and upriver. We would definitely stay at Glanmor again.

  • "Glanmor offers complete comfort and facilities in its beautiful shoreline location."

    Car parking to unload and load is not really an issue given the parking restrictions and the narrow roads. Glanmor being just a minute away from the local store, a cafe, bakery, two brilliant pubs and the pedestrian ferry to Fowey was ideally situated for us. Everyone in the village helps everybody, local or holidaymaker. A truly wonderful time. Watching the movements on the river and even the work in the shipyard is entertainment too.

  • "A lovely spacious apartment, comfortable and fully equipped, which enjoys a central position close to the harbour."

    It was lovely weather so it was nice to sit out in the courtyard and relax. The housekeeper left milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge and also some Cornish tea and fudge, which was a nice touch. The boatyard just below can be a bit noisy, so don’t expect a lie in! Roads in and out of the village for a few miles are very narrow but if you drive slowly all will be well. Best to park in the square by the bus stop to unload as, if you drive up the lane to the property, you then have to reverse out as there is no turning point. Also, be aware that the car park meters only accept cash, although you can pay by PayPal. Not much in Polruan, except a couple of pubs (NB The Lugger is closed on Mondays and it’s advisable to book early as we missed out!) but there are some good walks. However, it’s easy to take the ferry over to Fowey which is bigger and busier.

  • "Everything about the property was excellent, it was comfortable, clean and conveniently located to the waterfront and Fowey."

    The welcome gifts were very much appreciated. Thank you. I was quite satisfied with the parking arrangements but the walk to and from the car park was very taxing with an uphill climb up to the car park. I feel this would be quite a problem for older people or those with any limited mobility. I feel there should be some reference to this on the property details on the website. Not withstanding, we had an excellent holiday.

  • "The cottage was ideally situated just off the waterfront in Polruan and made a most enjoyable stay."

    The boat yard was not at all intrusive. The facilities and welcome pack were perfect and the housekeeper was also really helpful when I called about the key collection in suggesting where to go for days out. The accommodation could not have been more convenient for Fowey where we went twice. Loads of other places to visit of course and the scenery around this part of the coast is stunning. Parking by the water in Polruan is not possible , and being both rather unfit we found walking up the hill twice a day to the car park rather a challenge, but all part of the fun.

The property

A ground floor apartment, part of a row of terraced (formerly fishermen's) cottages, overlooking the boatyard and situated in the heart of the pretty village of Polruan.

The apartment has been lovingly restored by the present owners and, on entering, there is a large sitting room with dining area which has a door leading out to the small patio area.

This has an array of plants and garden furniture and provides a peaceful haven in which to relax.

The sitting area has an woodburning effect electric fire, a TV with Freeview and a DVD player.

Leading off the sitting area is the galley kitchen which is fully equipped.

There is a double bedroom with views out over the harbour toward Fowey, along with a single bedroom.

Completing the property is a wet room with shower which has been furbished with a pebble floor and underfloor heating.

This is an ideal holiday location.

The popular fishing village of Polruan has a general store, a bakery, a cafe, a gift shop and two pubs - The Russell and Lugger Inns, the latter of which is famous for its seafood.

Also within walking distance is the ancient Polruan Blockhouse, with the rocks below making an ideal place for a spot of fishing.

You can take the foot ferry over to Fowey and explore the delights and the Bodinnick Ferry gives you quick access to St Austell, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Also in the area are several National Trust properties, including St Anthony House and Lanhydrock, along with an extensive selection of coastal and inland walks available from the doorstep.

A lovely apartment for exploring the area.

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.

Note: Max 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child.
