Polperro in South East Cornwall fits the idyll of a quintessential Cornish fishing village. This picture postcard setting is so iconic you can visit the own model village of itself - you might even spot your Polperro holiday cottage!
Polperro cottages ascend the steep slopes around its inlet harbour proffering spectacular views of often clear waters and that unforgettable Cornish light. Artists and photographers flock here to capture the essence of Cornish life. Many of the galleries around the village reflect the trend and are cause for an annual arts and music festival come June.
Tales of smugglers abound especially around Willy Wilcox cave adjacent to Polperro’s small sandy beach. And more await in the museum. From the beach splash around or hunt for marine life in the tidal pool created from the rock. Clamber there carefully and cast your eyes up Chapel Cliff above, nurtured by the National Trust and known locally as 'Chay-pull’. And don’t miss the Polperro milk floats shuttling visitors to and from the car park.
