After a few days on the coastal path we spent one night in a comfortable room with glorious harbour views whilst feeling suitably pampered by the proprietors and staff at this friendly B&B/restaurant. Great location in the centre of Polperro, quality food and an enjoyably sociable breakfast with lots of locals popping in for food and chats.

Fantastic! Polperro is an idyllic village and the House on the Props is in the best location of all, right at the bridge that terminates the harbour. Our room was charming: a wonderful view overlooking the harbour, beamed ceilings, tasteful and airy decor. Breakfast was delicious, and included homemade walnut bread

Please ignore any of the negative reviews that you see, as they are so misleading, Steve and Mandy are superb hosts, the food is amazing, the accommodation is superbly comfortable, the location is idyllic and you would be hard pressed to find a more central location for your stay in Polperro. We will be back.

We had dinner here last night. The restaurant menu specialises in seafood. I had the whole fish which was cooked perfectly and my partner had the fish curry. The waitress was not impressed when he didn't finish his curry and grumbled that they should have given him a smaller portion. I ordered a raspberry meringue for dessert which the rather...

We stayed here for a night whilst walking the south west coast path. Steve and Mandy were great hosts and were very accomodating, allowing us to leave our luggage whilst walking for a couple of days. We had a twin room overlooking the harbour so had amazing views, which was worth paying a little extra for. The room was very...

We were recommended The House on the Props by a friend, and so glad we were. Mandy and Steve were so welcoming and even changed things around so we could have a bigger room for a couple of nights. The food was delicious, especially the fish curry and the scallops and the desserts were to die for. Mandy and Steve...

We arrived at the House on Props on Sunday Morning to be greeted by the very friendly owners Mandy and Steve Shepherd. We were shown to our very comfortable room upstairs in the most quaint building I have ever stayed in. I have to say the food is top notch and the home made cream tea, Smoked salmon and scrambled...

We booked a room for a couple of nights at the House on the Props from a recommendation in The Rough Guide and weren't disappointed. Conveniently located right on the harbour , very quaint and old, but our room was fine, with a good ensuite shower room. Good breakfasts - I loved the home baked walnut bread! - and friendly...
