Polmear is in Cornwall.

A small settlement at the edge of Par Sands between Par and Fowey at the bottom of Polmear Hill and half a mile from Twywardreath village.

In days gone by when there were higher sea levels and less silting up, Polmear had a small quay and a lime kiln. Now the settlement is approx 400m from the main beach car park on a small river which once may have been a ford at low tide.
