Spindrift is set in the heart of the Warren in Polperro, just behind Polperro's Heritage Museum. The cottage was owned by the Teglio family of Polperro pilchard-packing fame until the 1950s. Spindrift has now been carefully updated and is now a wonderfully authentic and comfortable mix of the period and modern, with a large kitchen, wood-burner and all mod cons.

Spindrift is in a great location for views, walks, shops, pubs and restaurants. We spent the week just walking out of the front door into the village whilst also using it as a base to explore Cornwall. The cottage was clean and very tastefully decorated and has amenities such as …
