Season: autumn

Although there is a small beach at Polperro, next to the outer breakwater, this was really a visit to a fishing village, rather than a beach.  Polperro is prepared for visitors in terms of facilities, shops and attractions.  I particularly recommend a visit to the Polperro Arts Foundation, a not-for-profit outfit that supports local artists, featured in my interview, below.  A charming village by the sea, highly recommended for a day visit or for a longer stay.

Season: winter

This is one of Cornwall’s most scenic villages, with an iconic fishing harbour.  Although it was a grey day at Polperro for my winter re-visit, with rain about and few visitors, some of the seasonal shops were just starting to open and the village still held its winter sleepiness to the fore.
