    “A clearly marked map of location of the property for arrival.”

    - Mrs Kyson, August 2021

    Thank you for your very kind comments in our on site guest book. I have spoken to Sykes cottages expressing your concern about a clearly marked map of the property and they have pointed out that on the booking web page, if you scroll down you will come to a clear location map, along with the detailed e-mail description they send to customers prior to travel. I am, however, very sorry if you were inconvenienced in any way. - Sykes owner relations

Tucked away in the popular fishing village of Polruan in Cornwall, is this superb detached house, Postcard Lodge.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to eight guests, Postcard Lodge is the ideal family-friendly dwelling for exploring all Cornwall has to offer, enjoying a large terrace with electric barbecue and hot tub with sea views and close proximity to Lantic Bay.

Climb the slate steps up to the property, where a delightful balcony with seating area will greet you, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee and watching the world go by.

Be charmed by the contemporary open-plan living space with kitchen, dining and sitting area, where you can relax with a glass of wine on the velvet teal sofas in front of your favourite film on the Smart TV as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Conjure up a feast for your guests in the fully functioning kitchen with Rangemaster oven, before gathering round the dining table to enjoy a toast to a wonderful holiday.

As the evening draws to a close, discover two of four beautifully decorated bedrooms on the ground-floor, a king-size with en-suite shower room and Smart TV and a twin with zip/link and a Smart TV, ideal for those lazy Sunday mornings.

You will also benefit from a tastefully decorated bathroom, with a shower over bath where you can enjoy a hot soak with your favourite book.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will find two additional bedrooms, a super-king-size with balcony and a king-size, both with en-suite shower rooms and Smart TV’s.

Take advantage of the handy garden kitchen, with a microwave and fridge, as well as a washer/dryer and dishwasher, making cleaning up a breeze!

Treat your guests to a game of pool in the games room, before heading out onto the terrace to enjoy a dip in the hot tub, as one of your guests prepares an alfresco lunch on the electric barbecue.

Head out for the day and explore your local surroundings, your first stop being Polruan Castle, where you can wander the ruins and take in the sweeping sea views or cast your rod and enjoy a spot of fishing.

Travel a short distance to the glorious National Trust site of Lantic Bay, where you will find the small coves to explore and a beautiful coastline to beachcombe, all surrounded by rugged headlands.

Nearby is the large village of Polperro, home to the stunning Polperro beach where you can enjoy a paddle or soak up the sun with your favourite book, as well as the picturesque harbour where you can take to the waters on a kayak.

Wander through the village where you will find a fantastic selection of eateries, serving the traditional Cornish cream tea, a must when in Cornwall, and delightful shops where you can purchase a souvenir to remember your trip.

Enjoy a trip to the Polperro Model Village where you can take in the charming miniature replica of the village with its own model railway or learn more about Polperro at its Heritage Museum which looks out over the harbour.

Travel a little further where you will find the coastal town of Looe, with its Old Guildhall Museum and Gaol where you can take a step into the town’s past, before heading down to enjoy the glorious sands of East Looe Beach.

Just a little further is the small town of Lostwithiel where you can take in the scenery with a walk through Shirehall Moor Local Nature Reserve, brush up on your local history at the Lostwithiel Museum and Lostwithiel Stannary Place or cross the River Fowey over the historical Tudor Bridge.

About the location

POLRUAN

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.
