October 2017

We really enjoyed our stay, and it was in a fab location and great for the dog too.

August 2017

We had a really lovely holiday. Great service from yourselves and also Jason who is caretaker at the cottage we stayed in...bed linen change and clean were great mid stay. Thanks so much.

July 2017

We very much enjoyed our stay and have provisionally booked the same week for next year. We've stayed in the village a number of times. Head O' Ditch was the best cottage we've stayed in. By far the most spacious, both inside and out, with a fantastic view over the rest of the village and out to sea. The welcoming gift and milk and tea available were a bonus.

May 2017

We had a lovely stay. Despite the weather we really enjoyed being in Polperro in your lovely cottage. It was immaculately clean and welcoming. We will definitely book again. Thank you

April 2017

Great cottage, we will be staying again. The picture on web site don't do the place justice as it fair nicer than expect. It was really a great place and will be putting on a great review for it so the items below are something just for you and might help nothing more. Hill is not for those with mobility issues not sure it says that but it was more than fine for us Just a few things that might help is more around how to clean and despot the waste from the fire as nothing in the guide book. Would be good to complete a form of things that might need looking like light bulbs replacing etc so that helps the caretaker etc. Those staying in summer would need more outside seating as only a couple of chairs and a very broken bench. The garden is wonderful so a couple of lounge chairs would be good The towels was very small not bath towels so glad we did bring our own as the ones provided would not be any good for an adult. Thank you so much

Thank you for your comments and delighted you enjoyed your stay. We'll pass on your sensible suggestions to the owner and caretaker and hope to see you again soon.

Very comfortable well equipped cottage. Lovely week in Polperro

March 2017

One small point: the only option for recycling is to take it too the town next door! In this day and age surely we have to be more responsible with our waste than that. I know that it is partly the responsibility of the local council but as a significant village business operator can't you do more or apply influence? Your customers expect it I'm afraid... The rest was great though.

Thank you for your valid comments. Unfortunately, we and others locally have tried to make a change to the recycling arrangements, but Cornwall Council only collect once fortnightly. This weekday collection makes it difficult for holiday cottages with weekend change overs to adhere to. We are really pleased you enjoyed yourselves, and thank you for staying with us!
