The Lookout is a delightful one bedroom apartment built in the eaves of a hill-side sea captains retreat 'Kit Hill House'. It is a self-contained hideaway, with its own private entrance and on site parking, within the peaceful grounds of this beautifully positioned property. Glorious views over the historic harbour and village of Polperro with its little tidal beach, then the spectacular view out to sea, a wonderful sight in all seasons. Walking distance downhill to the quintessential fishing village, with all of its amenities such as restaurants and pubs and a variety of shops both enticing and practical. The Lookout has the added bonus of being able to explore and enjoy the grounds, also it is within easy reach of the spectacular South West Coastal path, which takes you towards Talland Bay and Looe or in the opposite direction to the pretty smuggling cove of Lansallos or to Lantic Bay and beyond.

A very pleasant stay, comfortable apartment, great views over the harbour. Lovely shops in the village. Great pubs especially The Blue Peter, great atmosphere and good food. Well placed for exploring the area. Would recommend and would certainly stay here again.
It was a very long walk up a steep hill and whilst it was accessible for us, there may others who would find it very difficult to walk up the hill! I think this should be made more clear to guests!
We enjoyed our stay in Polperro which was a good base to explore Cornwall. An advantage of the property, which attracted us initially, is the on-site parking. We would recommend the property.
Thanks for a wonderful stay. Lookout apartment (Polperro) is well named - a beautiful view across the harbour.
We loved our stay and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you so much.
Stunning view, beautifully appointed and equipped apartment. Jacqui and Mike very friendly and helpful hosts. We had the privilege of every kind of weather in our short stay, rain and storm the first night, dramatic looking to the harbour, then two days mostly sunshine, even hot, then snow showers (including as we went on the ferry from Polruan to Fowey) and a beautiful light covering of snow on the last mornig. Glorious coastal walks and a great night in the Blue Peter Inn. Thanks for everything - and the wine!
We really enjoyed our stay. The gardens and view of the village were amazing. We would definitely book again.
