The Retreat is a split-level holiday apartment in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Polperro. With its balcony and patio garden, the apartment makes the ideal base for a relaxing holiday in Cornwall. It has free parking and is just a short walk from lots of great pubs and restaurants, making it the perfect spot for a self-catering holiday or short break in Polperro.

Details: The Retreat self-catering apartment 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. The balcony leads off the living room, which also has a table and chairs to enjoy the countryside views. Stairs lead downstairs to the double bedroom, which also overlooks the patio garden. Steps at the side of the property lead to the private patio garden, which is also 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 for your self-catering holiday in Polperro.

Free parking – 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 included in the price.


Polperro is a very dog-friendly village, so it’s a great place to bring your pet for a holiday in Cornwall. 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.

Short breaks

Short breaks are available all year in The Retreat apartment.

Where we are

The Retreat self-catering 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.
