À propos de ce logement
Smugglers Cottage is a 17th century 2 bed house in the heart of the ancient Cornish fishing harbour of Polperro. Cosy and comfortably furnished with harbour views. Situated directly on the South West Coast path. Beach, boat trips, pubs, shops nearby.
This is my much loved, and very simple, harbourside cottage in Polperro, Cornwall. It is available for 18 weeks a year when I am not here. There are two good sized bedrooms, a double and a twin, both with views over the Inner Harbour, and a shower room, lounge/diner with log burning stove and self-catering kitchen. There is a small outside space for that morning coffee or evening glass of wine by the front door. I am right on the Coast Path. Smugglers Cottage has been immortalised by many artists (just internet search it) but also comes as the Lilliput Lane minature cottage Sea Shanty!

Polperro is an ancient fishing settlement with pretty cottages rising steeply around a working harbour and small beach. Cliff top walks in both directions take you to more jaw dropping Cornish scenery. Several friendly and characterful local hostelries provide great choices for eating out and many also sell takeaways to collect for that night in by the fire after your exertions. Polperro has a lively arts scene with galleries and an annual weeklong music and arts festival in June. Musicians often play at local pubs. Boat trips and fishing trips are available less than two minutes walk away.
Buses run to Looe and on to Liskeard for the mainline station to London Paddington (3 hours 20 mins on a fast train down!) or to Polruan for a fabulous coast path walk back or a trip over to Fowey. Local taxi drivers are available. Polperro is largely car free, but Smugglers Cottage guests get free use of my parking space which is around 7 to 8 minutes level walk away.
Smugglers Cottage is an old property and the steps are steep and the floors uneven. Not suitable for those with impaired mobility. We are on the working harbour, in the thick of the action, so there may be noise on the days when the fleet are out fishing and when they return with their catch.
Smokers are welcome to smoke outside the front door but not inside the cottage. Please leave the cottage in the state you found it. Dogs are welcome with notice (for an extra cleaning charge of £20) but not in bedrooms, on furniture or left unattended. Smugglers is regrettably not suitable for the under fives due to steep stairs. Otherwise, you must enjoy yourselves! Please water the plants if you have time.

I am a dedicated globe trotter that finally found my perfect place in lovely Polperro in Cornwall. I love walking, scuba diving, horse riding, travel, food and wine. I spend as much time at Smugglers as I can, but when I can't be here I like others to enjoy this little slice of Cornish history on the quayside. One of my favourite things to do on a sunny afternoon is to take a picnic blanket, a nice bottle of wine and a good book up to Peak Rock cliff tops by the net loft - Bliss!.
