Polruan Cottages is a select group of individually-owned homes, most of which overlook the beautiful Fowey harbour. They range from the small, one-bedroomed cottage for two people to the spacious property which will accommodate up to nine quite comfortably, each with its own essential character.
Polruan is an ancient nautical village on the south-eastern shore of Fowey Harbour – mid-way along the south Cornish coast between Falmouth and Plymouth. It is often spoken of as a ‘fishing village’, and indeed there are a few professional fisherman left, but an equally important role throughout its long history has been played, as it is still played today, by boatbuilding and other activities connected with the busy and beautiful harbour on which the community lies.
Today, Polruan is unsurpassed as a place for a peaceful self-catering holiday in Cornwall. For those who are after, first and foremost, somewhere to sail or otherwise ‘mess about in boats’, Fowey has become one of the West Country’s major sailing centres, with two active clubs (the Royal Fowey Yacht Club and the Fowey Gallants Sailing Club) and the Harbour Master, himself a keen small-boat sailor, is anxious to welcome yachtsmen and provide the facilities they need, at reasonable cost. There are good facilities too, for sea-fishing and other water-sports.
Whatever your needs, their aim is that you enjoy your holiday, and they will give any information and assistance they can. Many of their visitors return each year from far afield.
