Things to do in Polperro

Located on the Cornish Riviera coast just 26 miles from Plymouth is Polperro, a historic working Cornish fishing village virtually unspoilt by time. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the rugged rocky coast and deep blue sea, this is the fairy tale setting for the perfect holiday.

Polperro has it all. A superb climate, quaint friendly pubs, good restaurants serving locally caught seafood, and variety of stores including art galleries, antique and gift shops. There is a smuggling museum, a model village and a wealth of historic sites that are both scenic and interesting.

Activities abound for the entire family - you could hire a fishing boat and try your hand at catching the evening meal, pack a picnic basket and head out along the beautiful untamed National Trust owned coast or capture the beauty of your surroundings on canvas or film. There is a sandy beach for children to play, rocky coves to explore and a rock pool that offers swimming at most times of the day.

Or if it's total relaxation you’re after, simply sit and watch time slip away as the boats gently bob up and down in the picturesque harbour while sea gulls provide the soundtrack - all you need do is soak up the peace and tranquillity that is Polperro.

Polperro is well placed for exploring other parts of Cornwall. The Eden Project, which has been described as the eighth wonder of the world, is only 20 minutes away while Tintagel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, The Lost Gardens of Helligan and The Shipwreck and Heritage Centre are also within easy reach.
