Directions to Polraen Country House
Finding a Looe hotel or B&B with free onsite parking is a rare thing which is why easy level access to Polraen’s onsite car park is especially appreciated by guests with restricted mobility and young families. Throw a bus and Looe Valley train into the mix and you have a perfect combination for anyone who likes the convenience of exploring Cornwall by car, bus or train.
From the Tamar Bridge, travel west on the A38 following signs for Liskeard until you reach the B3251, signposted Widegates, Sandplace, Looe. Follow sign B3252 joining the A387 just before Morval. Descend a steep hill into the Looe Valley, staying on the A387 until you reach Sandplace. Turn right at the junction with the B3254, signposted Duloe. Our car park is immediately to your left.
From the West
Take the A387 following the river. When you reach the junction with the B3254, we are right in front of you with our car park on the left opposite the hotel.
You can reach Polraen from across the UK via mainline train to Liskeard, changing to the Looe Valley Line for Sandplace – the last stop before Looe. It’s a request stop so please tell the conductor. From the station, turn right at the gate and walk parallel to the railway track for circa 400 yards past a row of pretty cottages until you reach Polraen Country House.
The 5-minute journey into Looe is the prettiest stretch of the entire line. As the estuary unfolds, you can spot birds and wildlife and admire the Looe Valley views. An extended summer service now sees the last train to Sandplace leaving Looe at 9.36 pm so you can comfortably eat in Looe of an evening and get back by train.
The bus, which honours senior citizen bus passes, picks up right outside the hotel reaching Looe in just 5 minutes with views at every turn on the picturesque 2-mile journey. The bus continues through the town to the village of Polperro. No 73 – Liskeard-Sandplace-Looe-Polperro – hourly service 07.30 to 1900.
Due to the pandemic, check in is currently after 4pm to permit extended cleaning regimes. If you plan to arrive after 7pm, please call us to give an estimated arrival time.
