House with a “million dollar view”

Martin K

This house surprised us when we arrived. It was actually much better than we expected. The view from the house to the harbour or the open sea is amazing and from all rooms you can see and hear the sea. When it was raining, sitting in the living room with a log fire and looking to the waves and the rain splashing to the big window is really nice. And sitting on the small terrace above the harbour in the morning sun was fantastic. There are a lot of tourists in Polperro (they come around 10 am and leave at 5 pm), but on the terrace, they cannot see you, so you are really in a nicely secluded place. We also went swimming in the sea which is, when the tide is high, only 10 steps away. We were there with two older children and they loved all the rooms, so we had no discussion who wants which bedroom. The car park is about 3 minutes away and as Polperro is a nearly car-free village (most of the streets are too narrow to get a car through) it is a nice walk along the harbour and many small shops. Two grocery shops offer everything You need, and we enjoyed food at Couches Restaurant, The House on the Props and the Three Pilchards. The Blue Peter Inn next door was always full, so we did not manage to go there. We can absolutely recommend this house and place. It was surely one of our favourite holiday homes and we will surely come back one day.
