Stay in a Polperro Holiday Letting for Tradition and History
Steeped in history, the village of Polperro retains much of its traditional charm, with tight rows of colourful fishermen's cottages and a pretty harbour. The Museum of Smuggling and Fishing is a must-see attraction and there are plenty of coastal walks to be had right on the doorstep of your Polperro holiday letting !
Getting to Polperro
Polperro is in a remote location so private or hire car is the best way to get to most Polperro holiday lettings. You'll have to leave your car in a car park at the north of the village though, as in order to maintain the narrow streets, visitors are not permitted to drive in the village. Regular trains connect from either London or Newquay to Liskeard which is less than an hour's train ride away from Polperro. If you prefer to fly to your Polperro holiday destination, Newquay airport connects to other UK airports. Inside the village, there are trams, or you can even travel by horse and cart!
Treat Yourself with some Fine Cornish Cuisine
For a small place, Polperro offers a huge variety of dining options, and the best thing is, they are all within easy reach of your Polperro holiday letting ! Whether you're looking for a naughty cream tea, a delicious Cornish pasty, or something a little more exotic, you'll find it in Polperro.
To touch up on your history, head to The Crumplehorn Inn and Mill, a house dating back to Elizabethan times which now serves locally caught, fresh seafood and other quality cuisine. Or for special occasions, Couch's Great House Restaurant, in the centre of the village, serves a sophisticated menu in high class, yet relaxed, surroundings. For something a little more local, The Kitchen serves consistently high quality food in a charming atmosphere.
But at the end of a busy day, you might be more inclined to take some supper back to your Polperro holiday home. The village of Looe has a selection of takeaway joints, offering everything from traditional fish and chips to Chinese food.
Palm tree climate
Cornwall has a mild, temperate climate, and being the most southern tip of England, it enjoys some of the country's best weather with palm trees and other sub-tropical plant life thriving here. Average summer temperatures fall between 13 and 19°C. That being said, expect rain when staying in your Polperro holiday lettings. It's usual year round.
Smuggling and fishing
Staying in Polperro holiday homes is the best way to mingle with the locals, and the narrow, meandering lanes of the village itself are a highlight of any trip here. Look out for evidence of its smuggling past: the cellars that once stored contraband goods are now home to independent stores and restaurants but that's not all Polperro has to offer. If you're a keen walker, the South West coastal path winds towards Looe in one direction and Polruan in the other.
A stroll down to the harbour will confirm that Polperro is still a working fishing village. From here you can charter a fishing boat for a dolphin or seal watching trip, organise a spot of shark fishing, or simply buy some fresh, delicious seafood to take back to your Polperro holiday let.
A short drive away, you'll find the Eden Project as well as a selection of National Trust houses. Or for more views of traditional life, head to the lively market town of Liskeard where you'll still find markets being held twice weekly. Beyond Liskeard, lies the unspoilt area of Bodmin Moor with its river valleys and oak forests.
See Polperro and its Surroundings by Night
If you're after a night of dancing in a hot, sweaty club, then you'll need to travel further afield. But if an evening sitting in a cosy pub, sipping on some of Britain's best ales, ciders and wines appeals, then Polperro is your place. The Blue Peter Inn ensures your comfort at any time of year with a large sun terrace and an open fire, while Looe's Ship Inn is known for its hearty potions of food.
In Liskeard you'll find live music at the Barley Sheaf, and the Fisherman's in Looe promises lively weekends too. If that's just not enough for you, head to Portsmouth or Newquay for a wider selection of clubs, cinemas, casinos and more.
The community run Polperro Festival begins on the third Saturday every June with music, dance, and theatre targeted to all ages. At the end of summer, the Looe Music Festival offers a weekend of live music on the beach while Newquay offers everything from music and surfing, to beer and fish festivals. Make sure you book your Polperro holiday lettings early when there are events happening, to become part of the action.
