Polperro is a village and fishing harbour on the south-east coast of Cornwall. It is well known for its idyllic location, surrounded by tightly packed old fishermen's houses which makes it attractive to tourists, particularly in the summer months. As early as the 13th century Polperro was known for fishing, and it is first recorded in a Royal document in 1303. Smuggling is understood to have prospered since Polperro developed as a port in the 12th century. It reached its height in the late 18th century when wars with America and France resulted in the high level of taxation on many imported goods. Consequently these taxes made it worthwhile for the local fishermen to boost their income by the covert importation of spirits and tobacco, and other goods from Guernsey. The village has won awards in the Cornwall in Bloom competition twice. Cars are banned from the village so it is an ideal place to wander on foot. There are shops and cafes, public houses and restaurants, craft and clothes shops. There are boat rides and fishing trips and, of course, the fantastic scenery!
