Experience Polperro in holiday lettings

Nestled on the southern shore of Cornwall, you’ll find the large village of Polperro. It functions primarily as a fishing harbour, but it is also a premier holiday destination for travellers looking for thrilling, yet relaxing adventure. Thanks to its scenic environment and surprisingly well-preserved historical sites, Polperro could be the holiday destination you’ve been looking for. Find out everything it has to offer by booking holiday lettings in town.

History

Historical sites near your Polperro holiday rental

The history of Polperro is incredibly well-preserved, so you’ll have numerous sites near your holiday rental. If you visit the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling & Fishing, you can feel like you’ve stepped back in time. You’ll see artefacts from the anglers of the past including written first-hand accounts and photographs. There’s even some wartime memorabilia on display. You may also want to visit the numerous fishermen’s houses in town that look virtually untouched despite being nearly ancient. Additionally, you can stop by St John the Baptist church. It no longer conducts services, but it offers valuable insight into what small town 18th-century churches were like in comparison to their more metropolitan counterparts.

Outdoor activities

Outdoor adventure near Polperro holiday cottages

There’s no shortage of outdoor adventure to be found near local holiday cottages. One of the most famous landmarks in the area is the South West Coast Path. This is a designated path along the shoreline that stretches about 630 miles from Dorset to Somerset. It passes right through Polperro, so you can use its pristine walking space to enjoy the scenic coastline. You can also find passage on a boat in the harbour and sail out into the water. From there, there’s a good chance you’ll see some dolphins and seals. Polperro is primarily known for its fishing, so you’ll find plenty of opportunity around town whether you fish off the side of a boat or cast off from inland. You can catch a variety of fish including cod, bass, pollock, flatfish, monkfish and even scallops.

Beaches

Beaches near Polperro villa rentals

If you’re looking for some fun in the sun, local villa rentals will put you close to some of Cornwall’s most popular beaches. In town, you’ll find Polperro Beach beyond the harbour wall. This beach is best suited for a relaxing walk, and it welcomes dogs. You may find a more relaxing experience at Lantic Bay as it’s very private. Sheltered in a small cove, the white sands here are as inviting as the water itself, though this area does not provide any toilet facilities nearby. Another option is Talland Bay where you’ll find several rock pools to explore, in addition to nearby shops and cafes.
