The accommodation is arranged over three floors. On the ground floor you will find a newly fitted modern kitchen/ diner with the added luxury of underfloor heating, There is a dining table with four chairs. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery, there is also a dishwasher.  A new TV has been installed in the diner for your enjoyment.

On the first floor, there is a double bedroom and a shower room/ toilet. Also on this floor is a small utility room which houses the washing machine.

The second floor is where you will find the good sized living room. Here there is a  TV with BT TV which includes the sports package. Also, a DVD player.

On the second floor, through glazed French doors there is access to the pretty South facing decked terrace. Here you will find a dining table with four chairs. This is a lovely little outside space to sit and relax in the sunshine, away from the hustle and bustle.

We do welcome dogs and there are some lovely walks from the doorstep. You can enjoy fabulous coastal walks to Talland Bay, Looe and Polruan, amongst others. So it is a dog friendly cottage and we would love for you to bring your four legged member of the family as I'm sure they will enjoy it too!


As with most Cornish towns and villages, there is limited parking in Polperro. Therefore we recommend parking in Polperro's main car park (10-12 mins walk from the cottage) where we have a parking permit, so you will benefit from a free parking spot - not a designated parking space, just park where you like. The car park is situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Polperro. During the spring/ summer months, if you don't fancy a walk, you will have the choice of a charming Tram, or a horse and cart which will take you to the centre. Also, there is a local luggage taxi which can take your luggage to your door. We actually enjoy the lovely walk from the car park, as it is very pretty and there are plenty of lovely shops and cafes to look at and stop in on your way!

Unlike some of the streets of Polperro, where there is no vehicular access, 1 Wayside Cottage is situated on Talland Hill which although is narrow in places (6ft at narrowest point), is wide enough to drive a car down. Therefore you are able to offload bags and luggage right on the doorstep. We ourselves have a medium to large estate car and it easily goes down Talland Hill, so we are able to offload on the doorstep. During peak season, to reduce congestion in the centre of Polperro, Talland Hill is restricted to residents and people staying in holiday cottages only.

1 Wayside Cottage isn't recommended for people with limited mobility, due to the accommodation being over three floors and being situated part way up a hill.
