About Victoria Richardson

Owner/Manager at Crumplehorn Holiday Cottages, in the beautiful coastal resorts of Polperro and Looe, Cornwall.

Victoria Richardson purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Victoria Richardson chose Polperro

My parents bought their first holiday cottage back in 1964. (Wow! - We have been established for just over 50 years now!)

They decided that as they loved the area so much, that they wanted to be able to share the beauty and charm of Polperro and Looe with others too.

I took the cottages over from my parents 10 years ago when they retired, and continue to pride myself on offering dependable - Quality, comfortable, clean accommodation.

We are annually inspected and approved by QIT (Quality in Cornwall) Your guarantee of a great place to stay!

What makes this apartment unique

All of our cottages have onsite private parking for your car, gardens or sun patios and are situated in the sea side resorts of Polperro and Looe, South East Cornwall.

We have beachside with fantastic sea views and riverside cottages nestling along the bank of the pretty river Pol, which runs through the resort of Polperro until it meets the sea.

And three gorgeous old world "white washed" Cornish cottages - Dating back to 1739. With beamed ceilings, stable doors, open fireplaces and sash windows.

Each cottage is individual, a cosy retreat from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Polperro was our Honeymoon Village - Our stay at Shellseekers has been like coming home. We love the apartment, and cannot wait to return.

This was a late booking so I was grateful to find somewhere.

The cottage is in a really convenient position, slightly in the less busy part of the village. There is a lovely fast-flowing stream in the front garden which sounds wonderful especially at night, and the cottage has private parking which is great.

The cottage is decorated well and seemed clean, although it felt quite dark despite the weather being bright and sunny. There was a constant damp smell in the air, which quickly got in to all our clothing, and the kitchen was so gloomy we didn't spend much time in there, which resulted in us eating out more than we'd expected. It seemed strange to be paying £1 coins into a meter for our electricity, took me back to being a student.

However, the beds were very comfortable, and the reclining sofas were a nice touch.

The communication with Victoria was always prompt, friendly and helpful.

The harbour is the heart of Polperro, which is full of gorgeous shops, cafes, restaurants and fabulous, friendly, cosy pubs, often with really high quality live music. For such a small village there is a crazy amount of quality food and drink.

The Blue Peter pub right on the harbour has to get a special mention for it's incredible food, and the friendliest staff.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Shellseekers is situated by the River Pol, and has a special de-humidifier in place to cope with humidity caused by the close proximity of the water - I hope that it wasn't accidentally turned off during your stay. The guests last week haven't mentioned anything, so I will check tomorrow. The £1.00 coin meter is set at a much lower rate than we actually pay for the electric - and is in place as part of our Green Acorn Sustainability Award - It encourages visitors not to waste electricity. On average guests pay between £3.00 and £6.00 per week towards their usage via the meter. We also encourage guests to use the shops and restaurants in the resort - and are delighted that you mention the wonderful food available. We are from Polperro and Looe, and are passionate about protecting the resorts for future generations to enjoy.

Lovely week in Polperro

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Shellseekers No1 on the ground floor. The accommodation was great for our needs and the position in Polperro is perfect for access to the village, just a couple of minutes walk to the restaurants, pubs and shops!

Having parking at the accommodation is a huge plus, not easy to find a place with onsite parking in Polperro!

The accommodation was very clean, bed was comfy with a good firm mattress and the furniture was also well looked after, my only criticism was a constant damp/mildew smell which never really went away, even when we opened all the windows.

Lovely stay in Polperro in this great property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our 4 night stay here and would definitely recommend it. It was ideal accommodation and in a great location with parking and easy access into the village. Although this accommodation is dog friendly, it was impeccably clean and I could not fault it's cleanliness. It had everything you could want away from home and there was everything from board games to a washing line. We Would definitely recommend for a long break away.

Lovely little rental in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Loved being about to walk into the heart of Polperro from this property. Been able to park right outside was a bonus. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable and was perfect for our needs.
