It was the ideal retreat and such a pretty cottage in a perfect location, a wonderful place to celebrate the New Year. We had sun nearly every morning streaming into the cottage.

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

From the Owner

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!
