About Ann Walker
We live in the countryside in England and decided that the seaside would provide a different experience for everyone. Our children who are now in their late twenties and early thirties still come with their friends and partners. We love sharing the cottage with our visitors some of whom have been 10 or 12 times.
Ann Walker purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Ann Walker chose Polruan
We first visited Polruan in the 1990s. Despite the fact that it poured with rain every day and that we had three small children and a dog with us, we loved every minute of that holiday. We were determined to buy a house nearby and when some years later an opportunity presented itself in Polruan we started to renovate September Cottage. We visit as often as our jobs permit and our children who are now grown up love to come to Cornwall as well. Our eldest son proposed to his girlfriend on the cliffs in Polruan so it has become a special place for all the family. We have received many visitors over the past few years who have sent glowing letters of recommendation about the cottage and its wonderful views over the Fowey estuary.
What makes this Cottage unique
Wonderful views over the bay towards Fowey with the many boats which sail into the harbour. Views on all sides of the cottage. The unspoilt village of Polruan, near the attractions of a tourist centre like Fowey but lovely and peaceful to come home to after a day of sightseeing and walking. We have our parking space about 100 metres from the cottage.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Polruan cottage with views of harbour
Simply delightful. Small but well equipped kitchen. Cosy living area with fantastic views of the flotilla of colorful boats in the harbor. Comfortable beds. Washer / dryer was a helpful plus. The area is a must-see --- quaint with historic surprises around every corner. Beautiful walks starting from front door. Need to be fit to handle the steep ups and downs of Polruan. The ferry to and from Fowey adds yet more to the overall wonderful experience. Both old village pubs are fittingly atmospheric with good menus. Absolutely loved our week away from it all!
Thank you so much for this delightful review. I am so glad that you had a good holiday and that you enjoyed the cottage and the area. I am very grateful to you to taking the time to review September Cottage.
Lovely cottage with great views...
We stayed in September Cottage in August and it was great! Lovely location, Polruan is quieter than Fowey which is nice and if you want the bustle then a short and regular ferry hop runs from early morning up until 11pm. The cottage is well equipped with two double bedrooms and bathroom downstairs and a lovely sitting/dining room upstairs along with a small well equipped kitchen. The upstairs views are amazing - looking out over the Fowey estuary.
Cute cottage with views of the harbour
Situated on the quieter side of Fowey Harbour in Pulrean, this little cottage is perfect for 2 - 3 people. There are delightful views from the upstairs living room across the water, and it's a very short walk down to the Harbour and the ferry across to Fowey. The cottage has pretty much everything you need. One tip though, the approach roads are incredibly narrow. Take your time driving into Pulrean. The best way to drop off your luggage is to REVERSE DOWN Battery Lane hill, drop your bags at the T junction, and then drive back up it to the private car park. It's saves burning your clutch up when trying to reverse up what is a pretty steep narrow lane.
Beautiful location & Cottage
We loved our stay at Anne & Christopher's gorgeous cottage. It had everything we needed and a stones throw from the amazing ruin we visited a few times last year. It's our third year of staying in Polruan and we prefer is side of the town. Very comfortable stay. Would recommended highly.
An odd memory
Cottage ok.Slightly smaller than expected.
The position is nice,with good views from the lounge.
The weather was pretty grim during our visit,so we felt slightly marooned in Polruan.
When the sun did shine,we made a dash for Fowey on the ferry.
Mixed feelings about Cornwall on this trip,but the ferry ride back to Polruan with lights twinkling at night,warmed our spirits.
We had a lovely stay in Ann’s cottage - it is small but perfectly formed and very well located - it also has a stunning view over fowey estuary. Ann was very helpful throughout!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cottage. It was a pleasure - I am so glad you enjoyed your holiday.
