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 ...
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, which leads into Polperro. The road winds down, past the main village car park. At the bottom, outside The Crumplethorn Inn, there is a mini island. Take the third exit, a sharp right, onto Longcoombe Lane (this is a narrow lane). Pick up your keys and parking permit from The Cottles B&B, about 200 metres up the hill. The Retreat apartment is next door to the B&B (in the same building). Our postcode is PL13 2PL, but we don’t advise using sat nav, as it can bring you in on a very narrow route! 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 Polper...
