We stayed at The Spyglass during July 2018. It is a fantastic little apartment and we loved our stay. The views from the lounge are absolutely beautiful. The pubs in the village are plentiful and good, we especially liked The 3 Pilchards for their food and garden and Polperro made a good base for visits to Fowey, Heligan and the SW Coast Path. Mike and Jacquie are welcoming hosts, we appreciated their thoughtfulness in equipping The Spyglass, especially little touches like the binoculars for looking out to sea. We would happily stay there again.
