About the neighbourhood
Talland Bay is a pretty cove a mile or two along the coast path from Polperro. Its beaches are popular with families and there are a couple of beach cafés.

The popular resort of Looe is about 4 miles from Polperro. Buses run between Polperro and Looe, or you can take a boat there from Polperro harbour. The River Looe divides East and West Looe. East Looe has popular, wide sandy beaches, excellent restaurants and an abundance of pubs and shops. West Looe has an extensive shingle and rock beach with good rock pools and a great view of Looe Island. There are also tennis courts, a mini golf and a bowling green open to visitors. Activities you can enjoy in Looe include crab fishing, sea fishing, surfing, sailing, deep-sea diving or hiring your own motor boat.

Fowey is a lovely old port and...
Car not needed
How to get there
By car
From Plymouth, take the A38 West, then A387 or B3252 towards Looe. When in Looe carry on along the A387 towards Polperro. Keep on this road and you will come to a mini-island with the Crumplethorn Inn on your left. Longcoombe Lane is the third exit from this Island (on the right), and the Cottles is situated just up on the right hand side.

Inputting our Postcode – PL13 2PL – should work with Sat Nav devices.

By Train
We are situated approximately 4 miles from Looe train station, and 12 miles from Liskeard train station. There are taxi/bus services to Polperro.

By Air
We are situated approximately 35 miles from Newquay Airport. This airport has become very popular with visitors to the West Country, especially with the introduction of low cost airlines.
