This delightful cottage is situated in the heart of Polruan but tucked away from it all with its own secret, walled patio garden, behind a locked gate. The south-facing patio has a distinctly Mediterranean feel with its cascading plants, terracotta flowerpots and stable door leading into a colourful kitchen. The Hideaway has been beautifully finished, with careful styling and lots of home comforts. Much more spacious than it initially appears you will be pleasantly surprised and are sure to find it a perfect bolt-hole for a romantic escape for two or somewhere to go with friends for a holiday together.

Polruan is situated across the water from Fowey and has a range of local shops, cafes and two good village pubs just a short stroll away from the cottage. The harbourside, with its constant activity, and glorious coastal walks are right on your doorstep, A passenger ferry operating all year round can take you across the river on foot or alternatively a 10 minute drive will take you to the Bodinnick Car Ferry.

Such a lovely cottage, a perfect getaway and cosy environment. This was our first time in Polruan and we can't wait to come back! Thank you for a brilliant week!

Miss Francesca G,

Here again for another stay in this ideal property! So clean and convenient and well furnished! Many thanks. The Lantivet Bay view stays in the memory through the entire year.

Ms Ruth G,

Lovely family friendly space in the heart of Polruan, plenty of games and DVDs for rainy day entertainment. Nicely decorated throughout with cosy cottage features. Beautiful walks in the surrounding area, a slightly quieter choice than Fowey for those wanting more peace + quiet.

Mrs S,

Love, love, love the cottage - cosy and beautiful. Great walks, pub and entertaining bus service!

Previous Customer,

1st time here - lovely place! Everything we needed and we will try and come back next year with my son, as it felt like being at home. We were lucky with the weather too. Thank you!

Previous Customer,

Attractive and charming cottage. We liked the period details, good quality furnishings, pretty terrace and style and standard of decoration. We've stayed in Polruan for more than 15 summers - this was one of the best cottages. Service when booking and during stay was excellent.

Ms Ruth G,

Lovely cottage, lots of fabulous walks and lazy afternoons and lovely beach weather - perfect!

Previous Customer,

We have all loved our stay in the gorgeous cottage! Great position to explore all the surrounding area which is so lovely!

Previous Customer,

The Hideaway (Polruan) is ideal for visiting the area and Fowey. A short ferry crossing and you are in the heart of Fowey. Plenty of walks in the area. Superb village shop and bakery in Polruan and 2 fabulous pubs. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage and Cornish Horizons.

Mrs Lynn G,


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.

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.
