As the name suggests, this south-facing house is situated on the seaward edge of Polruan. The property overlooks National Trust land and has superb views out to sea and across the harbour mouth to Readymoney cove. The coast path to Lantic Bay is within twenty-five yards and the village shops, inns, quays and the passenger ferry to Fowey are within six hundred yards. Southcliff provides a high standard of accommodation with outstanding sea views. From the sitting room, main bedrooms, patio and garden you can watch all the passing ships and boats and observe the stunning coastal scenery out towards Gribbin Head and beyond. Downstairs, the spacious lounge has a large picture window with a wonderful vista. Upstairs, both the master bedroom and second bedroom have excellent panoramic sea views to wake up to, and there is a third twin bedroom and a family bathroom. Outside the garden is laid to lawn at the front and a generous patio area with table and chairs and brick built barbecue overlooks the sea.

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.
