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.

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.

Lovely little holiday flat!

  • 5 of 5

Well looked after holiday flat, clean and tidy when we arrived, and had everything we could of needed. It's in a great location, with a bonus parking space. We ate out every night, and everywhere we went had great food and service.

Peace, quiet and fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed here several times, as always it was beautifully clean. A really superb location, minutes from polperro harbour. It has the benefit too of a private, sunny and secure garden. Finally you even get private parking. Thank you Victoria

Flat OK but couldn't get rid of unpleasant smell

  • 2 of 5

The flat was ok, good sized lounge, bedroom and bathroom. The outside patio area was nice and got the sun all afternoon. Excellent position halfway down the main street. The downside to the flat was the very unpleasant odour which pervaded throughout the flat. I spent the first day cleaning everything including hand washing the kitchen floor as there was no mop available. No matter what we used the smell lingered. Bought air freshener, cleaning fluids and bleach and this helped for a while. If you went out for the day and the windows were closed the smell hit us when we opened the kitchen door again. We put up with it for 4 days and then decided to go home. In hindsight we should have contacted the owners. Also disappointed to find the only floor cleaning implement was a small dustpan and brush.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed to read your comments - They are most unexpected, because we received an e-mail from Mrs Clydesdale last week saying that you had returned home early because you were poorly. We have never received any comments from guests who have stayed at Shellseekers No2 about an odour, and are not aware of one when we clean and service the apartment. In fact the guests who are staying their this week are back for their 3rd time! We will however look in to purchasing a mop for guests to use with our cleaning sprays - should they want to mop the floor during their stay. (At present we leave - Washing up liquid, Kitchen multi purpose spray, bathroom cleaning spray and various cloths for guests to use) But suggestions are always welcome for any improvements. Kind regards Victoria and the Cleaning Team. Crumplehorn Cottages Polperro and Looe

It was all fresh and clean

  • 5 of 5

Very good value for money

The electric meter only cost 8 pound for the whole week. We expected to pay more as the weather was cold even for March.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The info about the meter is really helpful for other guests to see too - As the meter is set at a lower tariff than we pay for the supply. Thank you for looking after and leaving the property so nicely - We hope to have you back sometime in the future. Kind regards Victoria and the Cleaning Team Crumplehorn Cottages

lovely week away in wonderful polperro

  • 5 of 5

We have returned from a lovely weeks break in shell seekers Number 2 , and the cottage and polperro itself were so nice we are already talking about booking for next year.

First the apartment. Shell seekers number 2 is the upstairs of two apartments, and had plenty of space for the two of us and our dog Lucy. Kitchen was well appointed and comfortable to cook in on the rare occasion we didnt eat out. One of the major advantages of shellseekers is its location and car parking space. This means unlike a lot of visitors to polperro you dont have to park your car at the main car park and walk down to the village, you can park right outside the apartment and leave your car there for the week without having to pay parking charges etc. Its only a 5 minute walk into the village itself from the apartment.

Couple of very minor things to be aware of, non of which were major problems or would stop us coming again.

Just mentioning them in passing.

The lounge is very spacious but would benefit from a larger TV. I only raise this as i watched the England game on the Monday night and a larger tv would have been nice, although my wife had no problem with it so for most people I am sure this wouldn’t be a problem.

You also just need to be aware the electrics are on a meter taking pound coins, we probably got through 6 or 7 pounds worth in the week so just make sure you have enough available.

Finally a comment on polperro it is a really nice place with a nice relaxed way of life. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants all serving nice food. Special mention to Michelles restaurant for a delicious restaurant meal , and the three pilchards pub for the size of their portions and the sun trap of a beergarden on the roof overlooking the harbour where we seemed to spend most sunny afternoons. Also if you have a dog with you pretty much everywhere was dog friendly and you can take your four legged friend in with you to eat and drink . plenty of walks from polperro out along the coastal paths with a lovely beach cafe at tallend bay, about a miles walk away

We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Shellseekers No2. We are really pleased to hear that you and Lucy (Your dog) enjoyed your week there. Polperro is a very pet friendly resort. I have made a note to replace the TV set, Thank you for the suggestion. We are continually looking to improve and upgrade the properties, as we have so many return guests - We think that a larger TV will enhance their next stay at the apartment too. As we replace any electrical appliances we also ensure that they are AA or AAA rated products - to comply with our Green Acorn accreditation for sustainable tourism. This also saves our guests money on electric. Our meters are also part of the Green Acorn commitment - and are very economical - as they are set at a lower rate than we are charged for the electricity. As a Cornish family we are passionate about looking after and protecting the beautiful county that we live in, and we try to encourage our guests to shop locally, use our environmentally friendly cleaning products during their stay and to conserve energy. That way we can all protect Cornwall for future generations to enjoy. We look forward to hopefully seeing you again in the future - and thank you once again for taking the time to write such a helpful review. Kind regards Victoria and the cleaning team. Crumplehorn Cottages.
