Polperro is home to welcoming pub and restaurants, as well as independent shops and art galleries. It is the perfect location for a self-catering holiday or bed and breakfast break. The village is full of winding streets and characterful old cottages clinging to the hillsides. A ten-minute stroll through the village from The Cottles takes you to the charming fishing harbour and the coast path, with its spectacular views. There are many wonderful walks around Polperro, including the beautiful Polperro to Looe walk along the coast path.
