Spyglass 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 in this beautifully positioned property. Glorious views over the historic harbour and village of Polperro with its little tidal beach, and 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.

Loved it. Could have sat looking at that vies for days. Worth the tricky entrance.

Fantastic view!

Exceptional views across the harbour and for added enjoyment, the owners have supplied some binoculars in the property.

We really enjoyed our stay, the climb back to the apartment from the village is a tough one, but the view you get is worth it and it kept us fit! I would definitely recommend this accommodation, having the benefit of a car parking space was ideal and as mentioned before the view amazing, also the owners were lovely and friendly with lots of helpful advice. I'd never heard of Polperro before, so pleased that I have found this Cornish hidden gem!
