Polruan is a delightful fishing village, lying to the east side of the Fowey Estuary on the beautiful South East Cornwall Heritage coastline. It is a charming and relaxing village untroubled by the hustle and bustle of Fowey, yet linked with a regular ferry. The waters of the estuary are renowned with plentiful deep water moorings and some of the finest sailing waters in the country. It is known as Du Maurier Country, with outstanding and beautifully unspoilt walks along the coastline in each direction. The village enjoys a strong community spirit, two public houses, local shop, village primary school and post office. It is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the East Cornwall Heritage Coast.DESCRIPTION

The property is accessed by a single track lane which leads through stone pillars onto the property where there is plenty of parking. There are level lawns and a stone storage building at one end (believed to be a former Admiralty store). The lawns runs to the front and side of the property. Stone and slate outbuilding at the rear used as a workshop. To the south west of the lawns the ownership of the property extends to an unspoilt undercliff area that drops away down to the cliff and sea below to a small shingle cove. Historically a path continued down to the water we are informed but it is believed this is now not possible. This undercliff area is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).SERVICES
