A beautiful cottage in a peaceful village setting.

The Rigging is a delightful Georgian three bedroom cottage set in the peaceful and idyllic area of Crumplehorn in Polperro, within easy reach of the fishing towns of Looe and Fowey and a short leisurely stroll through the village to the harbour front.
Internally the property has been beautifully furnished to a very high standard; there is a consistent pastel theme with stylish decorative pieces. Externally the property offers a front garden with seating for six which provides the ideal position to sit back, relax and watch the comings and goings of village life.
The village tearooms are within a two minute walk of The Rigging, as is the Crumplehorn Inn, a characterful 13th Century Inn offering hearty food. The picturesque village of Polperro can be reached in a leisurely stroll.
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, cafes, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. Polperro also boasts spectacular coastal walks to explore, perfect for walking off our fabulous cream teas. There is also a small sandy beach in Polperro at low tide.
Be sure to visit the museum and miniature village or take a boat trip from Polperro 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 popular 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.

Historic Reviews

Bring a hard hat if you are tall. The front door is low.

A ride to Polruan on the local bus

The Rigging felt very homely, we appreciated the pint of milk, as there was a shortage. The Beds were so comfortable, and if you can share with me the make of that mattress, that’d be great. Best nights sleep, and I will recommend this cottage. I didn’t see and negatives to this cottage. Booking process was good, and the web chat before I went was really quick to respond. I will use Blue Chip holidays again. Thank you for a calming break.
Pubs to visit in Polperro, Blue Peter (if eating, can’t pre-book a table, it’s first come first served) The 3 Pilchards, & The Crumplehorn (These are my favourites), The Cafe by the Museum was nice.

The blue Peter inn and 3 pilchards totally fab.

A very well appointed cottage with everything you could possibly need. We stayed in early December 2017 when some of facilities in the village were closed but there was still a good choice of options available to chose from to eat. We visited the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery in Lostwithiel a couple of times (very good food, coffee and cake and interesting nursery).
