Local Area

Polperro has a picture-postcard charm, with rambling alleys, quaint cottages and a pretty harbour.  This is a place where you can really relax and unwind, where life can slow down to a far more sedate pace, and the pressures of modern life disappear.  In short, a place where everything is done dreckly!

You could just spend all of your holiday admiring the stunning scenery, but if you do feel like getting out and about, there are miles of walking tracks to tempt you out onto the cliffs and beaches, a tidal sea pool where you can swim (though the approach is tricky so go carefully) and the opportunity to get out to sea on a fishing trip.

In June, Polperro holds a Music and Arts Festival, featuring parades through the streets, and a mock mayor is crowned.  As you might expect, artists are drawn to the area by the stunning landscapes, so you will find a gallery or two in among the tearooms, pubs and craft shops. 

Polperro beach is just beyond the harbour wall, and further along the coast can be found Talland Bay to the east, and Lansallos Beach and Lantic Bay to the west.
