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.

Local Area

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.
