Details: The Retreat is part of the same building as The Cottles B&B, but has its own private entrance, round the side of the building. Access to The Retreat is down two flights of steps. A small hallway leads off to the living room as well as the kitchen and bathroom with shower. Stairs lead downstairs to the bedroom, which also overlooks the patio garden. The double bed has a comfortable memory foam mattress. The balcony leads off the living room, which also a table and chairs to enjoy the countryside views. Steps at the side of the property lead to the patio garden, which is equipped with garden furniture.

The fully equipped kitchen has an electric oven with ceramic hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave and fold-out table with chairs, as well as all the cookware and crockery you need.

Free parking is included – for this we provide a permit for the main village car park, which is about 200 metres away, down the hill.

Towels and bed linen are provided, as well as a hairdryer, iron and ironing board. Heating is by electric heaters. Electricity is payable by £1 coin meter.


We welcome one well-behaved small to medium-sized dog, at a supplement of £30 per stay. However, we do ask you to please keep your pet off the bed and furniture.

Short breaks

Short breaks are available from October to May, with week-long bookings in the summer (Saturday changeover), but may also available in peak months, so it’s worth enquiring.

Where we are

The Retreat apartment is in a peaceful location, up a fairly steep, quiet lane. However, Polperro harbour is only a ten-minute walk through the village, which is home to lots of fantastic pubs, restaurants and shops.
