Polperro 1/undefined by Tripoto


Polperro : It is a fishing village on the south eastern coast of Cornwall. There is something really retracting (in the most positive of senses) about the fishing village. It has pretty little cottages, hugging the sides of the hills, that surround Polperro. We had a great time strolling through tiny paths with cafe’s selling the infamous Cornish pasties and some great fudge. The cafe’s and some art galleries line the descent towards the harbor and the beach. We spotted some curious names of houses and murals while taking a walk. At low tide, the moored boats against the backdrop of raising hills and colour-washed cottages is sure to take your breath away! Polperro has its own tiny beach, complete with a mystery of Willy Wilcox. The beach reveals a cave at low tide, which sits cosy underneath a rock that holds a cottage. Apparently, Willy Wilcox smuggled goods through the cave via a secret passage that ran between his cottage and the cave. It is said that while hiding, he drowned in the cave and still haunts the beach!
