A cottage suitable for small families who appreciate a rural surrounding and a good standard.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very lovely clean cottage situated in a lonely surrounding and yet within walking distance of Polperro {only 2 miles}. There was a beautiful garden and many sheep on the meadow next to it, which was very much appreciated by our daughter. There was a little beach nearby, too. The kitchen was apart from the living room which I like very much and it was well equipped even though it was small. The living room was really spacious and nice. We spent a very nice holiday there and the owners could not have been more helpful. They even arranged a date at the dentist's and gave me a lift to him when I got a terrible toothache. So I would very much recommend this cottage.

Fantastic cottage, lovely location and friendly helpful owners.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week at Higher Polgassic Cottage. The owners were there to meet us and showed us round,they also brought fresh towels midweek. The cottage has everything you could need for the stay and was really clean. It is in a great location, really quiet and peaceful with well kept gardens and fantastic views. It's a great base for exploring Cornwall or just chilling out in the gardens. We have nothing negative to say about our stay and we're already thinking about going back next year.

Lovely Cottage, simply lovely

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our week away at Higher Polgassic and on arrival were pleasantly surprised, the cottage was presented to a high standard very cosy and immaculate.

I can not fault the cottage it was perfect the kitchen was small but had everything you needed and dining table in the lounge so you didnt need anymore room, the ceillings were not low at all except in the upstairs bedroom but that would be for kids so it was not a problem.

I had children and I loved how safe they were and that they could run around the garden and the large field adjoining the garden it was lovely. I loved the rural location it was so quiet and peaceful and the views were stunning. Although you are rural its a good location to get around Cornwall and not so far from Polperro or Looe.

We had a fantastic week so thank you to the Gilham family who made us very welcome and were a very nice family. We will definitely return.

A very comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a beautiful setting with views to Bodmin Moor. It was very clean and well equipped. It was far better than we had imagined it would be. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It had central heating and a very well equipped kitchen. Our towels were changed mid week which was appreciated. Although it was in the country it was within easy reach of Looe, Polperro and Fowey.

Beautifully positioned cottage near the coast

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Higher Polgassic. It is in a lovely rural position but close to the SW Coast Path along the stunning south Cornish coast, and in easy reach of Looe, Polperro and Fowey as well as some of the county's major attractions such as the amazing but rather expensive Eden Project.

The cottage is generally well-presented and well-equipped. The upstairs bedroom has lovely views but very low ceilings (beware!). Downstairs has a comfortable bedroom, good shower room/toilet, rather narrow kitchen including small refrigerator and dishwasher, and a generous sitting/dining room. In short, perhaps not the perfect country cottage but with a great many good points and no major negatives, so it represents good value for money especially for early spring and late autumn.

We had a problem with the central heating and hot water during our stay, which our hosts the Gilham family could not have foreseen. They supplied electric heaters in the short term and worked hard to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

Our only disappointment was that the wood-burning stove visible in the photographs is not actually in use and we were told never has been. There might be good reasons but I doubt we are the only visitors to have been surprised by this, and it is the main reason I award four rather than five stars.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your visit,but the log fire did control the water and heating (which we thought wasn't working to the standard we like for the cottage),we had full oil central heating installed and was advised that we could not have both working so we left the fire there for a show piece.

A Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for the late, late review George!

We had a fabulous time at the cottage. Initially told it was available earlier than expected - sadly we had car trouble on A303 which made us very late.

Friendly welcome by George and family who couldn't have been more helpful in giving us information about the house and local area. Much to our delight, the field at the back had been extended to make a cricket and football pitch which pleased our two 10 year olds!!

The house itself was clean and fresh towels provided mid week are an added bonus. Having read the other reviews - there are a few flies (the house is in the countryside after all) but certainly not an issue and fly spray was provided. The only slight issue we had (this is very slight) was that after long days out in the glorious weather we had - the sofa wasnt the most comfortable. But as I said this is the only negative. The garden is secure for those who have younger children and it really is very peaceful - apart from the odd nosey sheep! Great for dinner outside at lunch or in the evening. And the shower is absolutely amazing!!

The nearest beach at Lansallos is a must for a visit, with crystal clear water and beautiful waterfall. NB the walk back up is tough so limited beach gear is my recommendation! We all loved the nearby village of Polperro - picture postcard scenery and giant, swimming lagoons which all children and adults will like. Local zoo is small but good value and for dodgy weather days there is a huge kids park with crazy golf, indoor play, dodgems and more 40 min drive away.

We had a great holiday - made better by the fabulous weather and the treatment received by the owners. They looked after our boys (and us) really well and they made their first proper holiday friend - something that we can all recall when we went on our family trips as kids.

Would 100% go back. Thanks for great summer holiday in 2016!
