The Main Accommodation

The main accommodation has three superb en-suite double bedrooms in the main house plus additional accommodation for two in the separate self contained Studio we can accommodate 2-8 guests. Each spacious living area has it’s own very special and captivating sea view. The Old Watch House is certainly a beautiful and tranquil place where you can get away, rejuvenate and revitalize. It’s the perfect location whether you are bringing your extended family, a group of friends or just you, your wife and the dog!

The property has been internally created using only the finest Cornish slate and granite with exposed Oak beams and woodwork; it’s modern, homely and spacious ambience brings a perfect balance of earthiness and tranquillity.

The outside space includes a large terraced garden and a pretty pagoda with seating and an abundance of plants and flowers. The balcony over the water gives a different type of outdoor space, leading straight from the living area through large French windows.

With an immensely well equipped kitchen you have everything you need to sample any number of traditional Cornish foods that you must try during your stay here in Cornwall at The Old Watch House.

Both the house and the studio are to be rented together.  The main property is dog friendly and with plenty of things to see and do with your dog around Polruan and in Cornwall generally, there’s more reason than ever to bring your best friend. Unfortunately the Studio does not accommodate dogs.

Both the Main accommodation and The Studio are non-smoking.

Accommodating up to 8 people very comfortably, it is the perfect choice for a family holiday or long weekend break with friends.

Kitchen & Dining Room

The main living space is a huge open planned area, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful Fowey estuary. A large circular dining table seats up to eight guests very comfortably plus breakfast bar for two. The kitchen is extensively equipped with everything the Chef in your party will need. The Aga style oven, built in vegetable steamer and Miele Coffee maker adds a truly luxurious touch.

Living Room

Beautifully handmade sofas and arm chairs look out over the water creating plenty of seating for eight people. There are no curtains but the windows are privacy glass, enabling the view to be enjoyed in the starlit evenings with total privacy. Whilst large and open planned, the property is naturally very warm however the log burning stove will add a romantic hue to your evening. With French windows leading from the sitting area you have a perfectly sized balcony where steps lead down to your private boat mooring.


The three bedrooms in the main property are all ensuite. The master suite boasts a stunning four-poster bed and another room offers the convenience of a Zip & Link bed – making a superking or two singles. The bedroom in the Studio apartment is open planned, giving gorgeous views across the Estuary. All beds are Hypnos mattresses with luxurious 200 thread count Egyptian Cotton White Company bedding for the best night’s sleep possible!
