Polperro is arguably one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall, characterised by a jumble of fishermen’s cottages and colourful boats anchored in the harbour. Here you will also find a handful of shops, cafés and restaurants to enjoy along with the Polperro Museum and The Shell House - a popular local attraction. The area is also ideal for keen walkers, with spectacular coastal walks within easy reach. There is a small sandy beach in Polperro at low tide.
Be sure to visit the miniature village or take a boat trip from the harbour. Polperro also hosts a music festival each year and celebrates Bonfire night with spectacular fireworks. There is a local golf course at nearby Looe, National Trust houses, the Duchy garden centre and much more within easy reach.
Within a short drive you will reach Looe, a popular resort with gift shops, fish and chip stalls and a family-friendly beach. Be sure to also make the short drive to Fowey, a charming fishing town with a selection of boutiques and art galleries. Fowey holds many events throughout the year including the popular Fowey Royal Regatta and the Daphne du Maurier literary festival. If you feel like a day on the water you can hire kayaks and boats or join a cruise along the river.
