Polperro Holiday Apartments and Cottage Location

Getting Here

Access to Kit Hill House and Head O’ditch Holiday Cottage by car is from the top of Talland Hill which is steep and narrow but is two-way for residents and guests at Kit Hill. The steep walk down into the village takes 4 to 5 minutes and you should allow 8 to 10 minutes for the return. Because of the nature of the terrain, the Lookout and Spyglass apartments are not suitable for wheelchair users.


Head out of Looe towards Polperro on the A387. After a couple of miles, you pass a petrol station on the left hand side. After ½ mile take a turning left signposted Killigarth Manor Holiday Park and Polperro CP School. Drive past the holiday park, the road bends sharply to the right, drive past the school and straight on where the road narrows and descends sharply to a T junction. Turn left and you are in Talland Hill which descends steeply. Watch out for a parking area on the left and shortly afterwards on the right is the tarmac driveway to Kit Hill House with a chain across the entrance. The driveway rises steeply to the right and we are at the top on the left where there is plenty of space for parking and turning. Head O’ditch Holiday Cottage is a little further down Talland Hill on the left.
