Things to do in Polperro, Cornwall


Polperro is a showpiece harbour village. Picturesque and tightly packed cottages tumble down to fish quay on the inner harbour, once packed with pilchard luggers.

There are many houses of interest, Couch's House dates from 1595,lived in the 19th century by Dr. Jonathan Couch the village doctor and naturalist and collector of fossils. The House on props and the Old Watch House are also fascinating old buildings.

The south West Coast path is worth exploring for the wild flowers to be found on the cliffs, leading to lovely bays and beaches.
