Lodging
“Polperro Beach In South East Cornwall, Polperro is widely thought to be one of the area’s most picturesque fishing villages. Brimming with whitewashed cottages all the way down the harbour, the beach sits in a sheltered position under the cliffs, only visible at low tide and close to the harbour. Unsurprisingly, it’s a popular destination and can get busy in the summer months. Dogs are not permitted at the beach during peak season, from Easter to October, and while parking in the village itself is all but impossible, but there’s a large car park about a mile up the valley with a regular shuttle service going up and down the hill.”

“Fab old pub - try the coastal path from Polruan to lovely Polperro (the walk is called the roller coaster, tough, good though) and wind up here. Or go on a boat trip to Polperro from Fowey Quay. ”
