Dog Friendly Accommodation Logo

Polruan, ‘The Old Sea Captain’s House’, is a three story, pet friendly, period coastal house that comfortably accommodates up to 10 people whilst still feeling homely. Located in New Quay, the house has stunning sea views from three of the bedrooms and is a very short walk to the blue flag beach, local grocery shop and all the fantastic pubs, restaurants, shops and amenities that New Quay has to offer. In addition, it has two private parking spaces to the rear of the property (a rare thing in New Quay), the benefit of which will be keenly noticed with the tight parking in New Quay – especially during the busy periods.

The house has a long history and was once a sea captains house. Recently sympathetically refurbished to a high standard, Polruan retains many original features preserving the old-world charm. The house is configured as follows: four bedrooms, two lounges (both with 46” smart TVs with Freeview, Netflix, Disney + and Prime, and the rear lounge also has games console and a host of board games), two bathrooms (one en-suite), a downstairs WC, an open plan kitchen and dining room (dining table easily seats 10 people), laundry with washing machine and dryer, and a special dog room (see photos!) which has room for bedding, food, toys, leads and anything else they need – for your convenience we have also provided a large plastic dog bed so all you need to do is bring blankets/ bedding. The house has Sky Wifi throughout.

Externally there is a paved rear garden which benefits from the evening sun. It has a large picnic table and a heated outdoor shower, perfect for showering sand off after a day at the beach or cleaning your fury friends!! Directly to the rear of the property are the two private parking spaces and across from the rear gate there are playing fields and a children’s playground for keeping the younger guests entertained away from the beach!!

The sleeping accommodation is set out as follows: First floor – large bedroom to the front of the house with king size bed and sea views, small bedroom to the front of the house with bunkbeds and sea views, large bedroom to the rear with king sized bed and ensuite bathroom; Attic – large bedroom with sea views. The beds in this room can be configured as two single beds or a king-sized bed; Ground floor – the rear lounge has an L-shaped corner sofa that converts to a comfortable double bed.

Polruan is perfectly set up for a short or long stay and for small or large families (or two families!) It comfortably accommodates up to 10 people without feeling as if you’re on top of each other and provides plenty of options for people to get some downtime if needed! With a small child of our own, the house also has essential items for babies and small children including a travel cot (just need to bring your own bedding), highchair, baby bath, baby gates and some baby toys and books.    

We do note that this is a residential family area so there is a strict policy against stag or hen dos, parties/gatherings, or loud noise/music late at night.

Lovely place with responsive host. Loved the views. Really good refurbishment of a terrace house in the centre of New Quay. Close to Costcutter and walkable to pubs and the pier.
