Polruan & The Lugger Inn

An ancient fishing village with a long history of boat building, Polruan is situated on the Polperro Heritage Coast. This village in South Cornwall has a distinct charm about it with many old buildings along the quay. There is only one road in and out of Polruan, which suffuses the village with an olde-worlde charm. Wider excursions are possible by ferry in Polruan, with the connection to Fowey departing regularly throughout the day.

Built on a very steep hill, Polruan is bounded on three sides by water: Pont Creek to the north, the River Fowey to the west and the English Channel to the south. At the top of Polruan Hill stands St Saviour’s Ruin, which pre-dates all the churches in the area and is built on a site first occupied by St Ruan, after whom Polruan is named. St Saviour’s ruin, which was equipped with bells, would have been both a landmark for ships and a good lookout point over the strategically important Fowey harbour. Read more.
