The Location / What to do

Polperro, a picturesque historic fishing village along the South Coast of Cornwall, is truly one of the most beautiful coastal villages with its colour washed cottages huddled along quaint narrow and almost traffic-free streets around its famous working fishing harbour.

“A house by the sea” he said...

About Us

Little did we know we would ever own a property virtually in the sea! Willy Wilcox Cottage is a truly unique property and its position speaks for itself we hope.

Fondest childhood memories of Polperro, buckets and spades, fudge, fish & chips, obligatory seaside paraphernalia – nothing has changed, and it feels like home.

The desire to be by the sea is driven by a few things, the assumption that having a salty sea dog sailor as a husband was the catalyst to this event coming to fruition is only part of the reason.

Customer reviews

Best spot in Polperro. Our second stay in the last few years. 20 yards from the Blue Peter pub and private terrace. Can't fault it really.

We had a fantastic holiday in a beautiful cottage in an amazing location. It was everything I thought it would be and more. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return one day. Thank you, Amanda, for all your help.
