A country house by the sea, Higher Shute is a traditional detached house full of character located in an elevated position above Polperro village and harbour.
Internally, the spacious home has many traditional country features including open fireplaces and wooden beams, yet sits in the perfect position for beautiful sea views. Externally, the spacious terrace comes with ample seating and offers stunning panoramic views of Polperro village, harbour and out to sea.
The village of Polperro squeezes down the valley to a small harbour. The village is famous for its seafood, where visitors can sit on the harbour and enjoy a fresh crab sandwich from one of the nearby cafes. There are great walks from the village to the nearby town of Looe via the five mile coastal footpath passing Talland Bay.
Although only small, Polperro has a number of authentic pubs and award winning restaurants. The village remains home to a thriving artistic community with a number of small galleries selling local work. The small sandy beach is protected from the winds and there is a famous natural swimming pool among the rocks that is revealed at low tide.
Whether you are in search of a romantic getaway in one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall or an action packed family day out at the Eden Project, Cornwall has it all and everything in between.
