Polruan Holiday Cottages
The South Coast is absolutely bursting with tiny fishing villages, each one with its own character. But without a doubt, you'll want to put the ancient shipbuilding village of Polruan on your list. If you're looking for an authentic outpost of Cornwall that hasn't yet been eaten up by tourism, this charming harbour on the mouth of the River Fowey must be it. And with St Austell Bay and the Eden Project just round the corner, you'll still be in easy reach of the Cornish hotspots.
At Snaptrip, we pride ourselves on our large range of Polruan holiday homes, with lots of availability throughout the year, even in peak times like Easter or August Bank Holiday. Families and large groups will love our farmhouses and barn conversions, offering bags of space for socialising, and large dog-friendly gardens for your furry friends. If you're planning a romantic break, try a special cabin or rural lodge, complete with a private hot tub for you to relax under the stars.
To really enjoy the South West's laid back beach lifestyle, you may want to book a cottage with sea views. The cottages that cascade down Polruan's hillside are perfect for that. Once you've had your fill of stunning views, you could take the old passenger ferry to Fowey and spend your day discovering this larger town's excellent shops and traditional pubs. As far as holidays in England and Wales go, this little Cornish village is hard to beat.
