Nice setting only had a mug of tea not very enjoyable as it was stewed .
A delightful little café to come across. Lovely place to sit and enjoy the view.
Great location. Best crab sandwich ever! Brill little beach huts to sit in! Tasty ice cream.
Fabulous cafe! Friendly, patient service, good food, very reasonable prices and amazing view.
It's a horrible walk down a narrow lane with cars all over the place, the café was lovely with a fantastic location and the scenery is just stunning
Lovely location, excellent facilities, good food and friendly staff.
The Museum Tea Room
Lovely coffee, and amazing location. A smile from the staff wouldn't have gone a miss though!
We have just returned from Waters Edge after two weeks of beautiful sunshine. The cottage was beautifully clean,well appointed and equipped. I believe the position was the envy of all who walked passed. I could not find a pen to write in the visitors book so would you please pass on our thanks and compliments to the owner and to her cleaner who came to collect the rubbish and delivery clean bedding on the dot of 10am, as arranged.
Excellent food and friendly staff. A lovely sunny place to sit and watch the boats.
The Three Pilchards
The oldest pub in Polperro, full of historic charm with a hillside garden overlooking the village. Here you will be served hearty homemade meals including fresh seafood, along with a range of well-kept wines, beers and lagers.

No desserts? I understand the comment in the menu but I prefer a main and a dessert. I am afraid there was no where on a Sunday night in March for me to go elsewhere and buy even an ice cream. I may have stayed and spent another £10 at least if I could have had a dessert and a coffee. The food I had was fine.
Lovely food, brilliant, welcoming people! Thank you
Lovely pub. Excellent service and food. Very friendly staff.
Lovely bar staff and fabulous beer garden, really nice pub
Great service, great food, well kept beer and great views from the terrace.
Fantastic place a little chem of a cottage we have been coming for 19 yrs and will still be coming in another 19 yrs.
Fantastic food and wonderful views from the beer garden.
Food superb,like the informal atmosphere,and not to far to crawl back to accommodation.
Great pub with amazing food and a warm welcome from all the staff. Definitely worth a visit if you're in polperro
The Three Pilchards is my favourite Cornish pub. In good weather, the roof terrace has lovely views over Polperro and must be recommended. In winter, the log burning fire is a brilliant comforter. The beer and food are excellent. On my most recent visit to Cornwall I had lunch there on two days. On the first day I had game pie with roasted root vegetables including beetroot, carrot and parsnip. The pie was a proper, free standing, shortcrust pie - not a small dish with a puff pastry crust. It was brilliant. On the second visit, I had crab bisque to warm me up followed by crab salad. Polperro is a clear choice for seafood. The owners, staff and pub dog are friendly and welcoming. The pub itself is dog friendly. I don’t think I’d visit the area without calling in at the Three Pilchards at least once.
Great food and lovely people. Nice pub garden looking out over the village.
Really lovely atmosphere in the pub. Staff very nice a friendly and we enjoyed our meal. Would recommend to anybody
Lovely food, visited a couple of times over a week... great service, nicely kept ales and lots of effort for local and Cornish drinks including ales, guns and rum... friendly staff... and Jake the dog was great !
Great people, Great food
Disappointed in the Pilchards. Food was expensive and staff a bit off hand. Used to be great but seems to have changed hands.
In The Warren overlooking the harbour, the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing houses a collection of exhibits and 19th century photographs that date back to a time when both smuggling and fishing thrived in Polperro. It brings to life the little village’s beautiful history and the lives of the people who lived there, having depended on fishing for generations and been home to no less than three factories close by at one point. A delightful opportunity for children and adults alike to learn about local history in this little Cornish village, entry is £1.75 for adults and 50p for children.

This museum is packed with interesting facts and some great photos, so even though small we spent a good hour there. Definitely worth a visit to learn more on the local history (including about the more recent floods and storms), fishy facts and smuggling tales!
Polperro Model Village
An utterly charming day out for the family, Polperro Model Village and Land of Legend is two attractions in one. The village is, quite literally, the coastal town in miniature and has been around for more than 60 years, surviving both fire and floods – so don’t underestimate the strength of these little guys. Meanwhile, Land of Legend is your chance to explore Cornish folklore, derived from tales of pirates and smugglers who thrived in and around Cornwall from the early modern period through to the 19th century. It is a unique show of lights, sound and animation. The site also houses a model railway, and prices are £3 for adults and £2 for children, open daily from Easter to October.
Looe Island Nature Reserve
On an island just off the coast of Looe, the aptly named Looe Island Nature Reserve is brimming with marine wildlife. The island provides a variety of habitats including woodland, maritime, grassland, sand, shingle and rocky reef, and is part of the Whitsand and Looe Bay Marine Conservation Zone. Trips run from Easter until around the end of September, although all visits are weather and tide dependent. The crossing via a passenger boat named Moonraker takes 20 minutes and you will then have about two hours to explore. The return boat fee is £7 per adult and £5 per child, and then there’s a landing fee of £4 per adult and £1 per child. You can then book guided walks online in advance, which are £25 including the boat and landing fee. What makes the island so beautiful is its ruggedness and as such there are not any cafes or refreshments available, and dogs are not permitted. However, there is a compost toilet should you need it.

No trip to Looe is complete without this experience . Had a wonderful few hours on the island . The wardens were lovely and very informative . It really was a special place and a must for anyone interested in wildlife .
Looe Fishing Trips
Looe Sailing Club
(Less than a mile)
A small, quiet beach between Looe and Polperro, Talland Bay actually comprises two beaches, one of which has sand both at low and high tide and is good for swimming all the time, while the other is less sandy and is easiest to swim from at high tide. There is a ramp for launching boats from the main beach and there are lots of small coves and tidal pools to swim in as well, so it’s a delightful area to explore in the water. Parking is limited, but there is a small, free car park by the beach and paid parking at The Beach Café, all of which provide easy access to the sand. Thanks to the nearby café, visitors can also benefit from the accompanying facilities, on-site shop, and tuck into Roskillys Cornish Ice-Cream as well.

Great beach pet friendly beach with rock pools etc for the dogs to explore
Brilliant. Bit seaweedy. Wear beach shoes incase of weever fish stings.
An interesting beach at low tide and lovely views.
In South East Cornwall, Polperro is widely thought to be one of the area’s most picturesque fishing villages. Brimming with whitewashed cottages all the way down the harbour, the beach sits in a sheltered position under the cliffs, only visible at low tide and close to the harbour. Unsurprisingly, it’s a popular destination and can get busy in the summer months. Dogs are not permitted at the beach during peak season, from Easter to October, and while parking in the village itself is all but impossible, but there’s a large car park about a mile up the valley with a regular shuttle service going up and down the hill.

really lovely, a must visit desination.
Enjoyed the harbour etc and all the shops but had dogs so did not visit the beach but a beautiful setting.
Polperro is a magic place. It is so pretty with its winding streets and old cottages and the harbour with its fishing boats. The residents are so friendly and welcoming and there’s a wide choice of restaurants and cafes. I particularly recommend Michelle’s for fantastic food and a real welcome. As a woman on my own I dined there, as elsewhere, with no feeling of awkwardness. Breakfast at the House on the Props just unbeatable! Spring is one of the best times to visit for the wonderful coastal walks and the masses of wild flowers. When you visit, think about the parking situation before you go as it needs organising, but many rentable cottages have spaces provided in the main car park and PauI who runs a little motorised transport system for luggage is very helpful and reliable. I am one of the thousands of people who just love Polperro and every time I visit feel a great reluctance to leave.
In East Looe, the beach sits directly in front of the old town, sheltered by the Banjo Pier and overlooked from the east by the hillside of Mount Ararat. A good family beach that has something for everyone, at low tide the sandy location is safe for swimming although it’s recommended you steer clear of the river mouth beyond the pier. The beach backs on to a seafront walkway which runs its length all the way to Second Beach to the east, where it tends to be less busy and it’s good for snorkeling. As it’s in the centre of the town there are lots of facilities and cafes nearby, but in the summer it’s a very popular spot and parking can be tricky, with traffic prohibited during these months, so be prepared for a bit of a walk.

Lovely beach and even when it was busy didn't feel overcrowded
Really good! Good sand and sea. Activities for the kids too. Difficult to get to cos no parking nearby.
Looe beach and seafront is cleaned every day (in season?) and looks good. A joy to sit and watch the sea and people passing by.
Half a mile west of Looe, stretching along the coast, Hannafore Beach is a sandy, shingle bay with a rocky reef and views of St George’s Island. At low tide it’s brimming with rock pools, making it fun and games for the whole family to enjoy, and it’s a wonderful sun trap in summer months thanks to its south east facing position. Because of its location over the river, the beach never really becomes too busy, but equally there aren’t any facilities nearby. It’s popular with dog walkers as it’s amongst the few dog-friendly beaches in the area, and having explored you can extend your excursion to a stroll along the promenade or a potter around the coast path to the wonderfully scenic Talland Bay. There is roadside parking along the sea front above the beach, but it can be difficult to find a space. Alternatively, there is a large car park in West Looe, around 10 minutes away on foot.

One of the many dog friendly beaches we visited lovely coastal walks to Talland Bay the nature reserve island is very interesting great refreshments available and not forgetting the free parking available all day which is very useful.
Great beach. Good view of looe island. Loads of shells to collect. Lots of dog walkers tho!
An interesting beach, but beware the incoming tide !
A small and pleasant grey sand beach with rocks exposed at low tide, Plaidy Beach is simply a nice place to visit and take in the scenery. There aren’t any facilities, and there’s no parking nearby so it’s one to reach on foot. There’s a slipway to the beach, but you will have to access it by walking along the coast path, parking at Millendreath or Looe and it’s worth keeping in mind that it’s quite steep from both directions. Millendreath is closer and the walk should take around 20 minutes. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round, so it’s a charming place to take them for a walk while you’re in the area.
