Polperro outdoor pool among best in Britain
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
With temperatures having soared during June, and the hottest June recorded since 1910, there's never been a better time for al fresco swimming.
Which is why the Daily Telegraph has decided to list its best ten outdoor swimming pools and lidos.
And at number seven on the list is one just a few miles from hotels in Fowey.
The unique and part natural pool at Polperro was picked by the Telegraph's expert travel writers because of its natural beauty.
Although it's partly man-made it nestles among the rocks at Polperro beach and is about as close to the sea as is possible.
The experience of swimming in it, filled with sea water, is also as close to swimming in the sea as possible, without actually getting into the deep blue ocean.
In fact, it's so natural the small tidal bathing pool could almost be considered to be a giant rockpool.
