Polperro cottage description

Libbys Cottage is a charming two bedroom cottage set in the peaceful area of The Warren, one of the most prestigious and beautiful areas of Polperro, with the tea houses, restaurants, pubs and harbour front on the doorstep and within easy reach of the fishing towns of Looe and Fowey.
Internally the cottage is set over three floors and has been beautifully furnished with nautical highlights. The cottage features exposed stone walls, window seats and a cosy effect fire. Externally Libbys Cottage offers a small front patio area complete with seating for four.

Set in the heart of the village with the tea rooms and the famous Blue Peter, a characterful Inn offering hearty food, right on the doorstep. Polperro is arguably one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall, characterised by a jumble of fisherman’s cottages and colourful boats bobbing in the harbour. Here you will also find a handful of shops, cafes 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 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.
