Polperro, Cornwall, England
Penlowen (run by myself, a marine biologist and my musician husband) provides affordable eco-friendly holiday accommodation for people who wish to enjoy Cornwall's coastline and gorgeous oldy-worldy village of Polperro. The recently renovated, boutique style living accommodation is light airy with sea views, new beds, quality bed linen, fresh flowers and a locally sourced cream tea on arrival. We provide organic towels and eco friendly organic and fairly traded products and we can provide organic vegetable boxes (subject to order). We have wonderful views of the coastline and through the large patio door in the upstairs living room you can enjoy watching the changes and moods of the water all day long. Unlike most properties in the village, who are unable to offer parking outside the properties, Penlowen is easily accessible by... Read more

Penlowen is ideally situated for a holiday in SE Cornwall. Polperro is accessible by foot - a ten-minute walk down a steep hill or twenty minutes on the more circuitous coastal path. There is also a bus which stops outside the door, going to Polruan...More

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the spectacular South Cornwall Coast in a largely unspoilt area of the South West, Penlowen is an ideal location to access the coastal path and an abundance of coves and beaches. The closest beach is Talland Bay, just a short walk away. The cove is steeped in history and, in the past, was frequently used by smugglers. The unspoilt cove remains a hidden treasure, and is ideal for snorkeling, swimming or relaxing on the beach. The beach cafe also hires kayaks and provides a selection of home-baked food.

After a ten minute walk down the hill you will reach the historic and picturesque village of Polperro. The quaint fishing village has narrow streets and whitewashed cottages. There are plenty of coffee houses, restaurants and pubs where you can sample the local fish and...
