Polperro is quaint fishing port on the south coast of Cornwall.

It is a perfect choice for the person who loves the idyllic Cornish fishing port. Polperro is car free so you will have to park outside of the village, and then walk through the car-free lanes. You will really feel that you have stepped back into old world Cornwall.

It boasts a whole range of facilities including pubs, restaurants, art galleries, cafes and even a museum.

Polperro has much history attached to it through its smuggling, fishing and other legendary stories that locals may want to tell you whilst sitting in one of its quaint pubs.

Most pubs have regular live music, and there is an annual Arts and Music Festival in June as well as a yearly Beer Festival.


Polperro’s history dates back to the 14th century, and the village was already functioning. It was heavily involved in smuggling, shipwrecks and fishing. Nowadays, there is not so much smuggling, but the fishing trade still thrives in Polperro, and you will see much activity in the harbour area.


There is a beach in Polperro but it can only be accessed at low tide. Dogs are allowed on the beach. There are plenty of beaches near Polperro itself, many of which are sandy, so great for swimming.


There are many picturesque walks in Polperro. One of the nicest ones is across the clifftops. This walk runs along from Talland Bay to Looe. It passes by the pilgrimage site of Looe Island  (Jesus was said to have visited as a child) and returning via the ancient Giant’s Hedge in Kilminorth Wood and Talland’s medieval church.
