About Victoria Richardson

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 12 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.

With 6 cottages in Polperro, and 2 at Looe.

We have beachside properties, 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 our Crumplehorn Cottages are 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.

Shellseekers No2, Polperro

  • 5 of 5

Shellseekers No2 was a very cosy well appointed 1st floor flat, conveniently situated a short step away from the harbour and centre of Polperro on the very quiet main street, with parking. It had everything we needed including a very private patio at the back, with a washing 'whirligig', and views to the hillside opposite from the front windows, but in no way overlooked. Victoria, the owner, was very accommodating to any queries we had and promptly in touch.

Lovely apartment in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment is fantastic for a very easy and short stroll through the village to the harbour. Also it came with a parking space which is a plus.

Nicely decorated and with everything you'll need for your stay.

We look our dog with us and she enjoyed it too!

I highly recommend shellseekers as a place to stay.
