Surrounded by miles of beautiful Cornish coast and countryside, opportunities for walking and relaxing abound. The Ridge is beautifully presented and faces straight out to sea, enjoying the sun throughout the day. Ships and boats using the harbour pass within full view creating a relaxing and constantly changing coastal vista. Downstairs all the main living rooms have amazing sea views through large 'picture' windows.

Polruan's position on a headland jutting out into the estuary meant that it once had great importance as a lookout point. Now, visitors can share the same commanding views from the headland looking out to sea, and across to Fowey on the far bank.
Up here is also the spectacularly beautiful Headland Garden, which has unexpectedly become known for more exotic flora than you might expect to find in this little corner of Cornwall. This has allowed it to be discovered and promoted far and wide.
While up here, gazing out into the distance, you may spot sea birds and other wildlife, and maybe even the odd seal. Much of the area is not only an AONB, but also a Special Area of Conservation, so that it can be preserved for future generations.
Like most villages in the area, the primary industry has always been fishing, however the locals are very welcoming to visitors, and tourism has taken its place.
Walkers will find the landscape to be ideal for hiking, or if you prefer just a gentle stroll, there are lots of options available. Upon your return, you can relax with a meal or drink in The Lugger Inn, or hop on the ferry and visit one of the pubs or cafes in Fowey.
An already fantastic property.Mr Mark Kelly - 30th October 2017
This is our 3rd visit to The Ridge and as usual a beautiful place to holiday! We always enjoy out time in Polruan and the weather has been good for setting out and enjoying the views.Morris and Green families - 25th August 2017
Enjoyed a lovely week in this fantastic house. Both village pubs are lovely and well worth a visit. Coastal path walks gorgeous, as is Fowey (via the ferry). If, like us, you end up having to find something to do with bored teenagers on a wet day, there is a cinema in St Austell (multi-screen). Will miss Polruan and the views!The Brown and Ashcroft families - 4th August 2017
Great location, excellent view, nice interior, lovely village - fabulous vacation spot! Thanks!Mr Frank Stoessel - 31st July 2017
We are now leaving and can barely believe it's already been a week. Time passes quickly in paradise, it seems. The house is perfect, possibly the best we've ever been to - and we've been to a few. Not mentioning the views would be a sin and the time here has been wonderful. This may have been our first time to The Ridge but it definitely won't be our last. Thanks!Mrs G Meyer - 21st April 2017
It is close to Eden Project and Lanhydrock.Mrs CA Harrison - 24th April 2016
