Browse the shops, stopping for a traditional pasty or cream tea at one of the lovely little outdoor cafes or just take a picnic and relax in the sun. There's a wonderful natural pool at low tide for swimming a few minutes away. Great pubs and restaurants are just 4-5 minutes stroll away. There aren't any nightclubs but you may hear the occasional fishing boat catching an early morning tide!More

Very occasionally the water pressure in the village is reduced and you obviously sadly took a shower at one of those times. It's very rare though. As for the bed I don't understand, of course the mattress has been changed in the last 10 years...More

About the neighbourhood
Lying a few miles down the coast from Looe, the historic fishing village of Polperro is a time capsule of old Cornwall at its romantic best.

Anyone wanting to do more than just relax and watch the world go by will find that there’s a lot to do in and around Polperro. The village does have a beach and, although relatively small, at low tide this is always popular. Then, in addition to numerous local tourist attractions such as The Eden Project and the magnificent National Trust property at Lanhydrock, there are the beautiful walks...
