The view will stay in your memory forever

As soon as you arrive at Polpier you’ll throw open the terrace doors and drink in the stupendous views of palm trees, aquamarine seas and boats bobbing in the harbour. The heated pool, tennis court and disco will stay on site, but the view will stay in your memory forever.

The adventure is just beginning

As well as the breath taking views, Polpier has everything for the ultimate holiday or party whatever the time of year. Enjoy long, relaxed breakfasts and lunches on the outside terrace, take a stroll with a mug of coffee and plan what produce to use from our greenhouse, vegetable, fruit and herb gardens for your menus.

Those guests with energy can swim or play tennis before early evening drinks on the front lawn while admiring the sun set. Candle-lit dinners by the wood burning stove will lead to nights dancing in your own disco.

You may never want to leave Polpier,  but if you spend time exploring the beaches, sailing or a day’s shooting, you will want to hurry back for a luxurious, lazy soak in  a roll top bath or a reviving clean up in a walk-in shower.

Relax and enjoy some quiet time watching television in your spacious bedroom. Then there are snooker or table tennis to play or magic up a movie on the home cinema. Most importantly make the most of having time to share with family and friends.

Gardens and Pool

Down the wide, sweeping, stone steps, below the huge lawn, lies the heated outdoor swimming pool at Polpier.

Relax poolside on the slate terrace. Enjoy the views over the harbour, and soak up the rays as the sun passes across the sky.

Behind Polpier is the club standard synthetic clay tennis court. Perfect for friendly knock abouts or your own tournament.

Polpier has two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, with incredible harbour views. At the heart of the garden is the large front lawn, perfect for cricket and croquet. At the end of the lawn you’ll find the gazebo, which provides shade for lazy afternoons of reading and snoozing.

"The house is absolutely stunning. I had no idea it would be so amazing and I honestly felt really spoilt staying there, as it’s so comfortable and luxurious and quite honestly unlike anywhere I have ever stayed before. The house was so warm and cosy and the bedrooms are just wonderful. Whoever looks after the house has done a fabulous job. The house is so clean and well cared for and everything has been so well thought out- the kitchen is well equipped and the beautiful sitting areas, with books and blankets are perfect for relaxation. I thought the house was just perfect for a yoga retreat because its really somewhere you can rest and relax, and the hallway / dance floor made an ideal space for practicing yoga. I would love to return there one day, as it really is a special place, I had such a brilliant weekend there and I really hope to return." - Sarah
"If you’re venturing to Cornwall in a group, Polpier House in the old coastal town of Mevagissey will make you very happy. The surrounding beaches and winding seafront pathways make for bracing days out, but really, you won’t want to leave the building. With eight super-king bedrooms, a living room with a crackling fireplace, a heated outdoor swimming pool, a tennis court, a home cinema, snooker and tennis tables and soaring views of the ocean, this is a place to drink in every minute with friends, family and a few bottles of wine. There’s even a ‘disco hall’ with its own DJ booth. Need we say any more?" - Suitcase Magazine

Cornwall is its own entertainment

If the house isn’t enough, lose yourself in the Lost Gardens of Heligan or marvel at the Eden Project. Potter down for a pint in the quaint fishing village of Mevagissey, walk the coastal path, take the ferry to Fowey for fresh fish. Cornwall is its own entertainment.
