As a peaceful Christmas cottage to relax with family this was perfect. The location and views were delightful. Locals were friendly and a stroll to the local pub was an added bonus. I will definitely be visiting again

We had an amazing stay at Fairview! The house was beautiful, really comfortable and offered everything we could need. The views are absolutely stunning, perfect to relax and unwind. The location is lovely, nice and quiet but with Fowey just a short ferry trip away you have everything you can need. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning some day! Thank you The Daltons and Huey ??...

Fairview was an absolutely beautiful house with fabulous views. Polruan is quite difficult to access with very narrow roads but once you are there and parked it is easy to catch the ferry over to Fowey. The harbour is only a couple of minutes walk from the house. It is quite expensive to catch the ferry over though for a family of five! The house was very well equipped, beautifully clean and the beds were very very comfortable. You can never tire of the amazing view. The South Coast path is also on your doorstep with fantastic walking and views. We had a lovely stay!...

We're so pleased to see that you loved the house - the views really are spectacular! Catching the ferry across to explore Fowey is a wonderful way to spend the day - the fare is currently around £2.80 per adult but you can check out the up to date price and schedule on the Polruan Ferry website or Facebook page.

Fairview is fantastic- beautiful property with amazing views in a super little village. It is not very accessible, but as long as you’re okay with this it is part of its charm. We loved the local walks and going across to Fowey. We went in October half term and Polruan was wonderfully quiet and peaceful. I imagine it gets very busy in summer....

Great place to stay for access to coastal walking, local pub, Fowey's facilities and the ferries. All without moving the car!
