Surrounded by Cornish countryside just 3 minutes drive from Looe, Polraen Country House offers easy access from onsite parking. Its hotel style facilities make it so much more than the usual Bed and Breakfast.
You can enjoy a cozy fully licensed evening bar, guest lounge and spacious dining room conservatory overlooking the large sunny garden as well as benefit from bus and train services to Looe, Liskeard. Polperro and beyond. All bedrooms have free WiFi, flat screen TVs and tea/coffee making facilities. Each room has an individual style to enhance the historic character of the house.
Onsite Parking and Public Transport
Park for free in Polraen’s own spacious car park immediately opposite the hotel, separated by a narrow B road. We can also provide secure parking for a limited number of motorbikes/bicycles in our private courtyard. With advance notice, you can even park your boat or trailer! Few hotels in such a beautiful rural location are so well connected with public transport, allowing you to explore Cornwall without a car.
Enjoy a country garden view with sweeping lawns bordered by colourful flower beds. With a choice of terraced seating areas, you can find the ideal place to relax with a cool drink. The enclosed garden offers plenty of space for children to play without disturbing others.
The garden is a birdwatchers’ delight, with the welcome absence of sea gulls! Spot buzzards above the hilltops, geese flying the course of the Looe River, pheasants strolling across the grass and house martins attempting a rent free summer.
Bar and Guest Lounge
Swap stories with fellow guests in Polraen’s well stocked cozy bar or relax in the guest lounge, conservatory or garden. Try local hand crafted cider and apple juice from Cornish Orchards in the Looe Valley. We open our fully licensed bar on a seasonal basis for hotel residents only. In winter, we serve drinks in the guest lounge.
Here you can relax on comfortable leather sofas to watch TV or choose from books and magazines and family-oriented pursuits including board games.
Dining Room Conservatory
With views across the garden to the wooded valley slopes beyond, Polraen’s large dining room conservatory is the perfect setting for breakfast or an evening picnic. Solar reflective glass and ample ventilation allow this room to remain comfortable during a hot sunnyday.
At Polraen, we welcome guests of all ages. Children warm to the welcoming atmosphere. We have no ball pools, gaming machines, swimming pools or noisy entertainment but provide a range of child friendly facilities. Our conservatory can be used of an evening for takeaways or picnics. Polraen has just two family rooms sleeping 3 and 4, so we are never inundated with young children – just a nice homely feel.
Some families book early in order to come back year after year. Why? ‘The convenience of onsite parking, easy access, a flat location (unusual for Looe!), a large secure garden. Then there’s the dolls’ house in the lounge, Martin’s crazy drawing competitions …..in summary, simply a relaxed and welcoming informal atmosphere that allows children to feel ‘at home ‘ on a country house holiday near Looe and the sea’.
