Pollpero has everything going for it, walks, sea, history and Laity is a lovely, romantic place to stay. Very helpful proprietors and good value on our February visit.

Fabulous stay in Laity in Polperro

  • 2 of 5

Second year running staying in this gem of a cottage, and another fabulous week in Polperro. Just feels like home when you walk through the door, so relaxing. Thank you for another great holiday in Laity - we will be back!

Just back from a wonderful week in Polperro with my Husband and 13 year old son. We stayed in Laity Apartment, could not have asked for a better accommodation or location.we were met by the lovely housekeeper, who couldn't have been more helpful. The property is very quirky and not what we usually go for, but really loved the experience. The four poster bed was lovely and the most comfortable Holiday bed we have slept in, and even more special was the waking up to the sound of the running stream outside the windows in the morning. The property was in a fantastic location, central for all village shops, pubs, restaurants, boat trips and coastal walks. Recommend The House on the Props for breakfast and cream teas. Polperro is a beautiful hidden away fishing village and we will definitely be returning again hopefully soon. Thank you very much for letting us stay at Laity.

My husband and I stayed for one week at Laity, in Polperro, we just did not want to leave!! The accommodation was ideally located for us, literally about 10 steps from the harbour! And the next door neighbours were nice and friendly! Great restaurants and pubs near to Laity and a fab corner shop only a few doors away! We would definitely stay at Laity again!

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Polperro is a fabulous place and Laity is the ideal base from which to explore it, and the surrounding area. It is classed as an apartment but that really doesn't do it justice, as it is full of characture , homely and comfortable. There is everything you need for cooking etc. But the local pubs and restaurants are well worth visiting. We will definitely be returning, sooner rather than later.

Having been to polperro many many times previously i've always wanted to stay in the village. couldn't have picked a better cottage to stay in. WOW is all i can say about the location.Perfect. pretty little lane and not even 10 yards from the gorgeous harbour.opened the bedroom window in the morning to find the stream running directly under it with the ducks and fish just swimming about. all the locals are very friendly and you feel like your living there to be honest.

The cottage itself is absolutely lovely and very homely, it has all the facilities that you need and the owners and the housekeeper are very helpful and communication was great.

A must is the breakfast from the house on the props restaraunt next door!! you won't find a better one trust me.

If your looking for somewhere to stay and explore cornwall or just to stay and relax then i recommend you stay here. we can't wait to get back....
