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 South East Cornwall

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.

Clean cosy apartment

  • 4 of 5

Property was very clean. Had everything we needed. The bedroom could benefit with blackout curtains/ blinds as the street light outside was very bright so lit the bedroom up all night. This is not a negative criticism at all, it's only because I struggle to sleep in a room if it is too light. I would still highly recommend this property

Damp smelling

  • 1 of 5

Location in Polperro perfect. Unfortunatly the apartment smelt very damp and muskywhich I found quite unpleasant

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you found a damp smell at the apartment - it could be the time of year as the season is changing. We have not had any complaints from the guests staying there this week - and the heating was turned up last weekend during the change-over, so hopefully it has been resolved. We are disappointed that you have left a one star review about it - without contacting us. As we were not aware of any issue. Kind regards Victoria Crumplehorn Cottages
