    Fantastic location for exploring and bus stop just up the road. The house was beautiful and well presented for our family holiday. It's by far the most well equipped, quality fitted and provisioned we have ever stayed in, and appreciated the little touches of welcome box for us and our dog etc. Thank you from all of us and look forward to booking and staying here again.

  • "From the property specifications, and other people's reviews we expected Pickney House to be of a high standard, and we were not disappointed!"

    It has absolutely everything one could ask for in holiday accommodation, plus much more besides, it is all of a good quality and very clean. The 'welcome pack' of Cornish cream tea and local bread was just the icing on the cake! We were blessed with good weather, enjoyed the local area, and we took advantage of the buses to get around. A holiday home I would recommend to anyone.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay at Pickney House."

    The entire house had recently been fully renovated and we were extremely impressed by the decor, furnishings and facilities. We arrived to find fresh scones, bread, jam, cream, biscuits and tea on the dining table which was a really lovely welcome. Each of the four bedrooms are beautifully furnished and complimentary toiletries were supplied. The kitchen is immaculate, spacious and very well equipped. The weather prevented our use of the garden/bbq but on a sunnier week that would be the perfect place to relax in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and would have no hesitation in recommending Pickney House to other families seeking a high quality holiday home close to Polperro and Looe.

The property

Polperro 1.4 miles.

Located in Killigarth near the fishing village of Polperro in Cornwall is Pickney House, a contemporary, four-bedroom home.

Enjoying both coastal and countryside views, Pickney House is well-positioned near the beach and a hub of amenities, whilst providing eight guests with the ultimate retreat for a Cornish getaway.

Park up on the private driveway where you'll also find a handy EV charging point (separate charge applies), before ascending the steps and reaching the entrance of the home.

Start off your getaway in the light-flooded sitting room, offering the perfect place to unwind after a day of travelling, sinking into the plush sofas with the woodburning stove alight in the background.

Continue to the sleek kitchen/diner, complete with dark grey cabinetry, a quirky backsplash, and a host of state-of-the-art appliances, along with a handy utility room; prepare meals, dine as a family, and socialise in this space.

If you'd prefer mealtimes in the sunshine, set the patio table and light the barbecue, ready for an alfresco affair, whilst your four-legged companion safely wanders through the enclosed garden; watch the sun set with a glass of wine in hand, before preparing for bed.

As the night grows darker, select from four well-appointed, stylish bedrooms, including two king-size bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, both including a Smart TV, and two twin bedrooms, perfect for the children of your group.

Prepare for the coming days in the sleek bathroom, complete with marble effect tiles and complimentary toiletries, before setting off on foot to stock up on the essentials, or to dine out at one of the many eateries in Polperro, including The Harbour Green House Restaurant and Bar, Bean and Scone tearoom, and the Blue Peter Inn.

Remain in Polperro for a day of activities, with the chance to view the area from above at the Polperro Model Village, follow the Polperro Heritage Coast and its stunning walking trails, or stroll along the small yet sandy terrain of Polperro Beach.

Travelling into Looe, opt for a tour of the Old Guildhall Museum & Gaol, enjoy a dip in the turquoise waters at Talland Bay (beach cafe with seasonal opening times), people watch at Banjo Pier, or head to the Wild Futures, The Monkey Sanctuary, offering a range of activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Round off your trip in Fowey to discover its aquarium, its stunning river, and the Readymoney Cove, a firm favourite for warmer days.

Experience a touch of luxury at Pickney House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Looe 4 miles.

Polperro and nearby Looe on the south coast of Cornwall’s coastline is a renowned tourist area giving visitors a unique holiday area to explore. Polperro is a historic fishing village nestling at the head of a long valley leading down to the sea. The sheltered fishing harbour with its surrounding jumble of quaint, whitewashed cottages, draws visitors from around the world. Walk the narrow streets, watch the fishermen land their catch, check the Smugglers Museum, take a leisurely lunch overlooking the harbour and then walk the clifftops for a taste of the spectacular coastal scenery. This is a magical area with much to see and do. The working fishing port of Looe is just 4 miles away and the delights of Cornwall's far west are easily accessible via the nearby Boddinnick ferry to Fowey and beyond with the local area well served with bus and ferry services. The perfect holiday location, a jewel in the Cornish coastline now denoted by Cornwall County Council as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, of historic interest and heritage importance, as well as a conservation area.

Note: No Stag or Hen parties.
