Tenure: Freehold

Superb cliffside cottage with breathtaking views out to sea and over Polperro harbour.


Polperro is one of the most picturesque and unspoilt fishing villages on the south Cornish coast. The village itself hides inside a narrow harbour entrance protected by hills. The centre of this much photographed village is without a doubt the historic harbour at the bottom of the village.

Smuggling is understood to have prospered since the 12th century when Polperro first developed as a port. By the late 18th century, much of the success of the smuggling trade through Polperro was controlled by Zephaniah Job (1749-1822), a local merchant who became known as "The Smuggler's Banker".

Fishing was traditionally the principal occupation of Polperro families. For centuries the village has been a pilchard fishing and processing port, exporting throughout Europe. Today, Polperro is much quieter although it is still possible to buy fresh fish and sea food off the quay side from the several small commercial boats still in operation.

The village is largely protected by preservation orders which ensure that the original character and appearance of its buildings are not changed too much - one has to obtain permission to change the colour of paint on some of the houses. The coastline which Polperro is set on is part of an 80 mile stretch known as the South Cornwall Heritage Coast, with beautiful walks extending from from Polperro to Talland Bay in the east or Lansallos in the west, both of which enjoy their own beaches.

Communications to and from Cornwall have improved greatly in recent years; the A38 is now largely dual carriageway to the M5 at Exeter and provides a fast road access to within a few miles of Polperro. There is a mainline rail link to London at nearby Liskeard, which includes an overnight 'sleeper' service.



Tycara enjoys one of the most desirable positions of the village, set within generous cliff-side gardens and grounds on the very sought after north side of the outer harbour. Facing south it enjoys fabulous elevated and panoramic views across the village itself, the inner and outer harbours, the headland and out on to the stunning main backdrop of the English Channel.

The accommodation is well balanced and proportioned. With two reception rooms; a sitting room complete with a Firebelly woodstove and a dining room with a door leading out to the patio in front and linking through to the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with a feature corner unit. Through the sitting room is a family room/fourth bedroom with two sets of sliding double doors taking maximum advantage of the beautiful southerly views. There is also a spacious and beautifully designed family bathroom on the ground floor.

The first floor is accessed by a turning staircase and includes a good-sized master bedroom with en-suite steam room/walk in shower, two further bedrooms and an additional shower room. Under floor heating is fitted throughout the house under wide oak planks and limestone/marble floor tiles.


The high stone walls provide privacy to the terrace and gardens which stretch the width of the actual property with a larger terrace located on the eastern side and a good sized level lawned garden area on the western side.

The current owners lease a parking space in the main car park in Polperro.


Mains water, electricity and drainage.
