Self Catering in Polperro


The historic fishing harbour at Polperro is now a popular tourist destination with plenty of self catering for every budget,


Polperro is the artists favourite with the small harbour nestled at the end of a winding gorge lined with white-washed cottages. Like Looe, it has plenty of traditional pubs to retire to at the end of a day sightseeing.

  • Visit Cornwall would not recommend trying to drive beyond the mini roundabout you meet at the bottom of the hill as you entre Polperro. Turn right here and park in the large car park.

    There is no parking in the village and the lanes are very narrow with tight turns. If you do manage to negotiate your way through the village you will most likely find yourself lost in countryside, miles from anywhere!

  • When the tide goes out there is a small beach outside the harbour, more shingle than sand. For a nicer beach it is worth walking east along the South West Coast Path to Talland Bay.

  • Polperro has been a star in many a film, but most of them are quite old now.
