An afternoon in Polperro

Two weeks ago, on our way to Looe Music Festival, we visited Polperro. It’s a little fishing village just about 5 miles away from Looe, with restricted vehicle access. You have to park your car at the entrance to the village and walk down to the harbour. It’s a twisty turny maze of little streets, cute buildings and eating places, and very very pretty.

Here are some pics

The stream runs down to the sea, between the street and houses, so people have to cross individual bridges to their homes!

Polperro is still a working harbour. Back in the 1300s it used to be rife with smugglers.

I bet there was some loot in this cave!

The village is dotted with rowing boats filled with flowers, and pretty colourful hanging baskets

We had lunch – look at that for a fish pie!

My sentiments exactly, ha ha!

I’d definitely recommend a visit and a wander around Polperro if you’re ever in the area.
