About Victoria Richardson

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

My family go back generation in the Polperro and Looe area - And I am proud to promote our beautiful resorts to our visitors.

Living locally I am always on hand to offer help or advice should guest require any assistance whilst they are staying at our cottages.

Victoria Richardson purchased this cottage 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!

This cottage is so pretty and unique, that author/TV presenter Judy Finnigan even has a character living in one of our Crumplehorn Cottages in her latest novel - I do not sleep.

We keep a copy of her novel in the cottage for guests to read during their holiday.

A beautifully poignant tale - set in Polperro.

What makes this cottage unique

This beautiful cottage is situated in the actual coastal resort of Polperro, it also has the added bonus of onsite private parking for your car (An absolute MUST in Polperro, where parking is at a premium, and expensive if you don't have carparking included)

Once you're at the cottage everything is just a short walk away, shops, Inns, cafes, restaurants, the harbour, beach and coastal paths - you can enjoy car free time in the resort.

Great location, lovely cottage..what more could you ask for?

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here in this very clean, well equipped cottage at the edge of Polperro Village. We had ample room for the three of us plus our small dog and would be more than happy to return or indeed recommend to any of our family or friends. We did have a very small issue with the bath tap which was dealt with extremely promptly and without issue. The parking space was so convenient and saved us high car park fees. Polperro is beautiful and we were within a 5 minute walk to the beach and surrounding shops. The nearest pub, not that any are far away, was great, friendly and cooked us and our friends a mean Sunday roast. Can't fault the cottage or anything about the area and all it has to offer.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Cosy cottage at the top of Polperro. We had a great time staying in this cottage.During the day we would go out and visit different places around Cornwall. In the evenings we would sit outside the cottage with a glass of wine before popping into the Crumplehorn Inn for dinner. We would then walk down into Polperro. Locals were very welcoming and pubs were all dog friendly. We will definitely book again. Thankyou!

Beautiful cottage and location esquisite views

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that we had been to Cornwall and it is beautiful. Your cottage is gorgeous in a beautiful spot , just what we like. We will definitely be back. The crumple horn Inn is lovely especially their stroganoff, and Millys tapas. As it was our first time in Cornwall we explored it going to Mevagissey, Tintagel Castle, Padstow and loads of other villages but we loved Perranporth beach . See you again soon
