Victoria Richardson purchased this cottage 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 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)

Just Great

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Crumplehorn 1, which in short says it all after all who would go back to a place that they didn't enjoy. Its such a cute cosy cottage and perfect for 2, everything you need inside and bonus a parking space right outside. Dare I say it we are already thinking about when we can re-visit. Thank you too to Victoria for the efficient service and just for being so helpful. I would recommend the cottage to anyone. Thanks again and hopefully back soon.

Good location, parking, very quaint cottage in a lovely fishing village

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Polperro and would definitely go back.

We liked the slow pace of life there and the friendliness. Good food eating

locations (the blue peter being our favourite).

Just two constructive observations : one, the lamp shade hanging down in the centre of the downstairs room could be exchanged for a flusher ceiling fitting

(I walked into it a few times!!!) they have spot lights over the sink, and point

two operating the shower meant you had to stretch to the wall switch and not

operate it from the shower unit itself. We enjoyed the stay so just small points

to maybe look at ?

Good point with the parking outside the property it was ideal for transferring

our bags from the boot to the cottage.

Bus stop across the road taking you to Looe and back, ideal.

Crumplehorn pub across the road for those who partake in a little liquid

refreshment!!

Did go into Looe but happier that we were staying in Polperro,

Felt more like a local there.

Summing up a most pleasant and enjoyable stay and went home with our

batteries fully recharged!!

Lovely cottage. We had a fantastic time.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely. Nice and warm upon arrival and comfortable. The bedroom with en-suite was very nicely set out and we had the best nights sleep in the very comfy bed. Lots of space in the bedroom.for clothes and bits and bobs. We had an issue with the Wi-Fi but this was sorted out very quickly. We would recommend the cottage to any couple who just want to go and chill out. If I had a very small criticism it would be the lack of space in the kitchen area but I only cooked once so that was doable. We would recommend the owners of the cottage as very inviting, helpful and welcoming. The icing on the cake was the card, gift and plant we found upon arrival - a very lovely touch. We have been to Polperro a few times but have stayed at Seaview - never again its the Crumplehorn cottages again for us in fact we are already trying to sort out this Christmas. Thank you Victoria for a very pleasant stay. Ellie and Tony Browne

Gorgeous Cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect for two people. It was extremely clean, very cosy and comfortable and very well equipped. Ideally situated at the top of the village. It was very peaceful and quiet there. We loved our time there and are looking forward to returning in the near future. I have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you encountered a problem with the Mira shower at the cottage. I will get my plumber to take a look at it during the week. Sorry, but we had not been made aware of any issue with the temperature of the water in the shower from previous guests. This should be sorted very soon now that you have raised the issue. Kind regards Victoria Crumplehorn Cottages Polperro and Looe
