How far is the Car park from The Warren??

We have just booked a house in Polperro for may 2012 and were advised when we booked that we can't access where the house is by car (on The Warren), we are parking in the main car park which I was told is £32 for the week, but wondered how far we will have to walk with all our luggage?? also is it possible for us to access somewhere closer to be dropped off and then take the car to the car park?? also where is the closest shop for food etc??

I've just measured the track on the OS Memory Map and from the main carpark (north of the village) down to the Warren it comes out as 0.66 miles.

You may find the info here useful:

Hi there

The Warren sits to the left side of the harbour and is indeed impassable with anything larger than a quad bike. It's a slight downhill walk from the main carpark and with bags will take you about 15 minutes.

It is possible to get the car closer - drive down through the village and just as the road gets very narrow, there's a carpark on the right where the trams pick up and set down for the main carpark. It's directly after the narrow turning on your right which is signed as "Mill Hill". You can't leave the car here, but no-one will mind if you drop your bags off and turn round there.

Don't try to get any further down into the village as there's nowhere to turn and the road gets VERY narrow indeed.

There's a shop opposite the carpark there - it used to be called Bartletts and although I don't recall it's current name, anyone in the village will know it as "Bartletts" so if in doubt, stop off at one of the shops or restaurants before the road gets narrow and ask a local for "Bartletts".

Oh yes, and there's a small food shop in the village at the bottom of Talland Hill, on the right as you are heading from the Warren, go past the "House on Props" walk on up to the junction with the bottom of Talland Hill, and the shop is on your right.

if you want a larger choice, there's a Somerfields in Looe and for a vast choice, there's a Morrison's in Liskeard
