The property

This charming two-bedroom home, Kittiwake, is hidden away in the modest fishing community of Polruan, Cornwall.

Kittiwake accommodates four guests and is ideal for couples or a family looking to take in the breathtaking surroundings of this area of Cornwall.

It benefits from stunning beach views, a fenced, multi-level garden, and near proximity to the local facilities.

Upon entering your new home away from home, relax in the comfortable sitting area while your significant other prepares a delectable meal in the well-equipped kitchen by turning on the Smart TV for some light entertainment.

Step outside into the expansive garden to have a meal alfresco while taking in the quiet surroundings and expansive views of the waterfront.

You can also spend the evening stargazing or making plans for the next day.

Before retiring to one of the two elegant king-size bedrooms on the first floor, indulge yourself to a warm shower or soak in the tub to finish your evening routine.

Start your day off right with a scenic stroll to Polruan Quay, where you can also find your nearest conveniences to stock up on supplies for self-catering or indulge in a hearty lunch on days when you don't feel like cooking.

This picturesque location is also home to a variety of whitewashed cottages and fishing boats.

From your doorstep, you can also find Lantic Bay, a big shingle beach that is maintained by the National Trust and where you can enjoy a family picnic with stunning views as your backdrop.

Spend the day at Fowey, which has lots to offer the whole family and is home to the Fowey Museum, Fowey Aquarium, St. Catherine's Castle, and Readymoney Cove, if you're travelling further.

You'll never run out of things to do or see because of the location's proximity to Polperro Model Village, Wild Futures - The Monkey Sanctuary, and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, as well as the well-known towns of Penare, Portloe, and Torpoint.

When planning your next getaway in Cornwall, pick Kittiwake.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Polperro 6.5 miles; Looe 10 miles; Lostwithiel 10 miles.

Polruan is a small fishing village situated on a steep hill on the Fowey estuary, made famous by the author Daphne du Maurier. It remains unspoilt and retains the atmosphere of an old boat building community and has a small beach. The Polruan chain tower known as Polruan Blockhouse is one of only five known to exist in England, and is a small structure built beside a river or harbour to house the mechanism for raising and lowering a defensive chain to prevent the passage of ships in times of danger. It and the chain tower on the opposite bank of the River Fowey are the earliest chain towers to have been constructed. The village has a Post Office, local store, gift shop and pubs. A five minute ferry ride will take you to Fowey, with a range of sophisticated shops and restaurants. In August, the Fowey Regatta is a fun-filled week of activities and events, including RNLI displays, a carnival, spectacular firework displays and a display of classic yachts.
