Polperro is a village and fishing port originally belonging to the ancient Raphael Manor mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Situated on the River Pol, four miles west of the major resort of Looe and 25 miles west of the major city and port of Plymouth, It has a picturesque fishing harbour lined with tightly packed houses which make it a popular tourist location in the summer months. The village retains almost all of its 17th Century architectural charm and has been a working fishing port since the 13th Century. This peaceful fishing cove was once a thriving centre for the area's smuggling. Today, in cellars where furtive smugglers once dodged the Customs Officer's muskets, you can see displays of local crafts and fishermen's smocks, or dine in style at one of Polperro's excellent restaurants. Fishing trips or pleasure cruises can be arranged from the quayside, or one can take the cliff path to explore the secluded smuggling coves of Talland and Lantivet Bay. With its protected inner harbour full of colourful boats packed tightly into a steep valley on either side of the River Pol, the quaint colour-washed cottages and twisting streets, Polperro offers surprises at every turn: the Saxon and Roman bridges, the famous House on Props, The Old Watch House, the fish quay, and the 16th Century house where Dr. Jonathan Couch, naturalist and grandfather of the celebrated writer Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, once lived.
