About Polkerris

An attractive curving harbour wall puts a protective arm around an assortment of gaily painted boats and yachts moored whilst their owners sample the pleasures of this old fishing village. Polkerris in St.Austell's Bay has a lovely sandy beach backed by a cluster of cottages built haphazardly along a narrow village street leading towards the wooded hills and cliffs which give shelter to this enchanting little cove.

The sparking waters of the bay attract surfers from all over. The local pub, The Rashleigh Inn lies in a favoured position right opposite the beach, it is famous for being mentioned on the Daphne du Maurier coastal walk and interestingly, Polkerris Bay was featured in Rebecca. Daphne du Maurier spent most of her life in these parts, she knew and loved the Cornish coast and much of the attractive scenery here-about is featured in her books. Menabilly, the home she leased from the Rashleigh family, is said to be Manderley, focal point of Rebecca. Needless to say, fans of the great novelist flock to the area at every season of the year.

A holiday here offers a wealth of interest for all the family. Sun, sea and sand, excellent boating and water-sports, sea fishing, beautiful walks-from the cliffs above Polkerris, it is possible to see the 'Daymark' on Gribbin Head. Tranquil, serene and very beautiful with shimmering waves tumbling against cliffs and shore, this special corner of Cornwall will leave you with many memories of sun-kissed days filled with joy and pleasure.

Places to visit include: The Eden Project, Menabilly, Wheal Martyn Heritage Centre, St. Austell, Gribbin Head and Fowey.
