Polperro is a lovely old Cornish fishing port, and still has its own fish dock and market. The walk down the village to the little harbour is gentle, and there are plenty of places of interest, and to get something to eat or drink - from a simple pasty, to good restaurants and pubs.
Polperro has a colourful and interesting history, with many tales to tell. Not least of all these, are the rich tales of smuggling, and the exploits of those involved in the "free trade", and their various dealings with the Preventative Service and the Customs and Excise men.
