Polurrian Hotel & Cove

The Rock Pool Project takes a look at Polurrian Cove and the hotel that sits above it in our second blog of the series about hotels in Cornwall.

The Rock Pool Project in the area

The Lizard is a truly beautiful part of Cornwall, with some amazing rock pooling sites, in some spectular settings. The Rock Pool Project have run events across the peninsula, including Polurrian Cove, Poldhu Cove and Kennack Sands. The Polurrian Hotel is an amazing place for families and adults to experience Conrwall’s marine environment and we are current available for bespoke rock pool safaris in the area! We are also running public events in Falmouth, a short drive from the hotel.
