Thanks so much for your review. We do have many properties within our portfolio which suit guests with specific mobility considerations - Fairview is set over two floors in quite an elevated position, and the parking is a short walk away so it may not work for everyone but our friendly Booking Office team would be delighted to give more information to help guests make a decision.

This is our second visit to Fairview and we love this comfortable house with it’s stunning views from every window and garden. Polruan is a peaceful location with lovely walks and it’s easy to take the ferry either by foot or car over to Fowey for the shops and restaurants. We would definitely recommend staying there and we can’t wait to return.

The views are to die for and the peace and tranquality of Polruan with the ability to cross the estuary to Fowey for a more lively atmosphere make this an ideal holiday destination. The house is ideally situated but be aware of steep hills and narrow road access.

April 2017

Exceptional holiday home with stunning views from most rooms. You can while away hours just watching the boats. We went on some great walks. Food in local pubs is excellent, especially fish at the Lugger. It's great fun going backwards and forwards on both the car and passenger ferries. Treated ourselves to dinner at The Fowey Hotel on the last night. Was very good. People in the village are very friendly. We can't wait to go back.

April 2017

Fairview is a fantastic cottage. The views over the harbour and across to Fowey are amazing. The interior is beautiful with everything you need for a very comfortable holiday. The car park space close by is a bonus too. We wouldn't hesitate to come back again.
