Polraen Country House nestles quietly in the Looe Valley 2 miles from the historic fishing port of Looe. Overlooking beautiful gardens 3 minutes drive from Looe, the former 18th century coaching inn is run as a country house bed and breakfast. Polraen’s AA 4 Star Gold Award accommodation offers a choice of ensuite bedrooms and many of the facilities of a small hotel including free parking and WiFi. A fully licensed bar, guest lounge, spacious gardens and onsite parking combine to create a relaxing stress free holiday base. With a reputation spanning 19 years under the Bridges family, Polraen has won awards for warm family run hospitality and great food. Magnificent breakfasts using Cornish produce are served in the conservatory which doubles as a picnic room for guests. Also served by bus and scenic Looe Valley train, it’s easy to reach Looe, Polperro, and Liskeard from this ideal touring base for Cornwall and Devon.

My partner and I very much enjoyed our Cornish getaway at the end of January/start of February. The Polraen Country house hotel couldn't have offered us anything more than what we wanted, It's situated nicely just outside of Looe, where it's tranquil yet had easy access to the

All the praise is deserved...we had a 3 night stay in a cosy room so we could enjoy the New Year’s Eve celebrations in Looe. Perfect rural location next to river, yet only a few minutes from Looe. Plenty of parking, and a lovely cooked breakfast of fresh locally sourced produce.

Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to share it with tripadvisor travellers.

Hope to welcome you to Polraen again.

Thank you for your kind comments. Just 2 miles out of Looe, the dawn chorus here in the Looe Valley tends to be a bit quieter than the seagulls in town which makes for a peaceful night. Glad you liked the breakfast.
