The Rigging is a delightful Georgian three bedroom cottage set in the peaceful and idyllic area of Crumplehorn in Polperro, within easy reach of the fishing towns of Looe and Fowey and a short leisurely stroll through the village to the harbour front. Internally the property has been beautifully furnished to a very high standard; there is a consistent pastel theme with stylish decorative pieces. Externally the property offers a front garden with seating for six which provides the ideal position to sit back, relax and watch the comings and goings of village life.
The village tearooms are within a two-minute walk of The Rigging, as is the Crumplehorn Inn, a characterful 13th Century Inn offering hearty food. The picturesque village of Polperro can be reached in a leisurely stroll. Polperro is arguably one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall, characterised by a jumble of fishermen’s cottages and colourful boats anchored in the harbour. Here you will also find a handful of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. Polperro also boasts spectacular coastal walks to explore, perfect for walking off our fabulous cream teas. There is also a small sandy beach in Polperro at low tide.
Be sure to visit the museum and miniature village or take a boat trip from Polperro Harbour. Polperro also hosts a music festival each year and celebrates bonfire night with spectacular fireworks. There is a local golf course at nearby Looe, National Trust houses, the Duchy Garden Centre and much more within easy reach. Within a short drive, you will reach Looe, a popular resort with gift shops, fish and chip stalls and a popular family-friendly beach.
Be sure to also make the short drive to Fowey, a charming fishing town with a selection of boutiques and art galleries. Fowey holds many events throughout the year including the popular Fowey Royal Regatta and the Daphne du Maurier literary festival. If you feel like a day on the water you can hire kayaks and boats or join a cruise along the river.
