Polperro is a a picture postcard fishing village on the North Cornwall coast just along from Looe. Quaint fishermans cottages, many now available as holiday lets, tumble down to the water's edge. Polperro is quite different from any other Cornish village. Being hidden in a steep valley that finally opens up at the mouth of the River Pol, it was a perfect haven for later day smugglers. Not much has changed since that time, the quaint fisherman's cottages, squashed together along the steep cobbled lanes that run down to the harbour make for amazing waterside holiday cottages and a holiday experience you will never get anywhere else.

Visiting Polperro is like stepping bak in time and most of the village has not changes for centuries. The quaint colour washed cottages and old bridges date back to the 16th century. Seek out The Shell House, so called because its walls are literally covered in patterns made from shells or learn Polperro's story as told at the Museum of Fishing and Smuggling, located in an old fish-processing warehouse. The coast line around Polerro is littered with hidden coves and pretty beaches and the coast line along to Looe is an area of oustanding natural beauty. The area is steeped in Cornish maritime and literary history with Daphne De Maurier basing many of her books on the region. Venture afield by car or on foot to beaches such as Talland Bay, Lansallos Beach, Lantavit Bay and Lantic Bay - all great beaches for a memorable self catering holiday in Cornwall.
