The Cobbles is a sympathetically modernised 18th century whitewashed fisherman’s cottage overlooking Polperro beach and the harbour mouth, which retains all its old world charm whilst providing a high standard of comfortable living accommodation. The cottage is located on a pedestrianised lane, a short walk from the centre of this quintessential 16th century Cornish fishing village and rewards guests with delightful sea views from most rooms. Tasteful furnishings, neutral colours and quality accessories combine to create a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere, accentuated by the soothing murmur of the sea. Steps behind the cottage lead up to a small, sunny terrace which has panoramic views of the harbour and village. The South West Coastal path passes close to the cottage and for those who enjoy exploring, the whole of Cornwall with its abundance of attractions is easily accessible by car.


Front stable door from lane opens into a kitchen/diner with a slate floor and underfloor heating, modern painted wooden kitchen units, an induction hob, built-in electric fan oven, dishwasher, fridge with icebox, washer/dryer, dining table to seat five and window seat overlooking the harbour. Stairs to first floor living room with oak flooring, large window seat with spectacular views, woodburner, large sofa, armchair, 32" LCD TV, DVD player and a DAB radio with iPod docking station. Family bathroom with slate floor, bath, shower over, hand basin and WC. Door to rear. Stairs to second floor. Master bedroom with 6ft super king size bed, fitted wardrobes and window seat. Twin bedroom with two 3ft single beds (one is 5ft 10in long) and fitted wardrobe.


From the rear door, steps lead up past a neighbour’s terrace to a small patio area with garden table and chairs and views of the harbour, village and sea. Please Note: The rear terrace and steps are not suitable for unaccompanied young children and the elderly may find access difficult.
Please Note: The garden steps can become slipery in wet weather.

Property reviews for The Cobbles

Rated 4.5/5 based on 12 reviews

Excellent holiday and super property. We just had one problem, with the WiFi not working, but we would stay at The Cobbles again !!

We would like to say a special thank you to Shelagh at the Polperro office. We had some issues with lack of WiFi and she went out of her way to help us rectify the issue. Polperro is a gorgeous village and The Cobbles is a wonderful cottage positioned in one of the best parts of the village. We will definitely return soon.

The views from this cottage are breath taking. Everything in the cottage is of a very high standard.

A stunning location and wonderful cottage - a fabulous spot from which to explore Cornwall.

Stunning setting and house with everything you could need and views from every window!

Although fairly expensive The Cobbles was well worth the money being in a wonderful position and in immaculate condition with every thing you could need.

The Cobbles was beautifully presented and perfectly situated on the edge of the harbour in Polperro. The fact that many passers by stopped immediately outside the cottage to take photographs of the village confirmed our opinion. A perfect home from home. We spent many hours watching the world go by from the window seats. Highly recommended.
