A Luxury Retreat in the Heart of Cornwall

Welcome to
The Old Watchhouse


Imagine for a moment that you are standing in a large, open planned living room - close your eyes and listen closely to the gentle lapping of the tides from beyond the large picture windows.

Open your eyes again and cast your view out over the picturesque estuary and harbourside properties in the distance. Watch with pleasure as fishing boats and yachts of all shapes and sizes bob up and down or meander along the estuary on their daily voyages. Take a long, deep breath and smell the clean, fresh Cornish air making you feel invigorated and alive again...

Congratulations, you have just arrived for your stay at The Old Watch House and it's going to be one of the most relaxing, magical and memorable visits to Cornwall you have ever experienced!

This luxury retreat in Cornwall situated in the delightful Cornish village of Polruan is a perfect choice for you. As mentioned it sits right on the water's edge with breathtaking views across the mouth of the estuary and the town of Fowey is but a short hop across the water. This truly unique coastal residence makes for a perfect luxurious Self Catering experience - whether you want a weekend break with friends, a family holiday or maybe just a well deserved romantic getaway.

Located close to the world famous Eden Project and historic harbour town of Charlestown, The Old Watch House can offer any type of holiday you seek, be it walking, sight-seeing, sailing or exploring Cornwall. Maybe you just want to get away from it all and do nothing - the choice is yours.

Spacious and homely this luxury holiday retreat will accommodate up to 8 people - 6 persons in the main accommodation and 2 in the adjoining studio. The house has a modern nautical ambience and truly spectacular views across the estuary and beyond that have to be experienced to be believed. Your holiday at The Old Watch House will create memories that will last a lifetime.
