More relaxing than the very best massage
Who doesn?t love Cornwall. We visited Polruan with (and at the vigorous encouragement) of friends thinking UK, October..... wind and rain. We took some persuading and were really glad that we finally decided to go, having had the most relaxing week in years. Whilst the weather wasn?t great the area more than made up for it. The locals were lovely, and the walks in the area as well as being spectacular are never too far from a warm welcoming Cornish pub. The Watch Below is also gorgeous with a view from the front window to die for. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy with a lovely welcoming pack to greet us on our arrival. We also had a helpful pack from the owners sent out to us in advance making suggestions on things to do and directions to the property and we met the lovely Tom while we were down there - who we think manages the property? There are two great pubs within a five minute walk serving food and a passenger ferry across to Fowey which has lots of nice shops and restaurants. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful apartment with stunning views
This was the second time we have stayed in this lovely apartment, it is spacious & very thoughtfully designed with everything you need for a relaxing break. Very nicely decorated and comfortable. The views of Fowey from the lounge are stunning & the tiny terrace at the front a fab place for morning coffee. This apartment is very centrally located in Polruan, only about 100m from two nice pubs & the village shop for basic groceries. The ferry goes regularly to Fowey which has some gorgeous restaurants & shops, we particularly like Sams brassiere, they do the best bouillabaisse I?ve ever had! We went on some fantastic walks, with sea views all around you, Lantic Bay is well worth the climb for the most beautiful sheltered beach, take a picnic as there are no amenities. This is a great holiday home in a very beautiful location, we will definitely be back

Rising Damp on Sea?
Really quite a poor experience of a holiday home here. Location is great... but; The property has clearly been described by a wordsmith.... Yard Oxford English Dictionary; A small space surrounded by walls at the back of a house, usually with a hard surface: Reality; Let's just call it a paving slab sized area not even big enough for a small dog to turnaround in, I jest you not ! The back half of the property is riddled with damp, we even had to remove all bed covers and tumble dirty them when we arrived. It's a real shame, I hope the owners put their hands in their pockets and rectify this misleading description and obvious damp health hazard.
