Cottage and garden view beautiful, Talland Hill bit of a climb!

June 2019

The property was great, the only drawback was getting up and down Talland Hill, we would not return to this property fue to the steepness of the climb.

May 2019

The cottage is lovely & well appointed. Cleanliness was spot on. There are one or two places the plaster needs attention. But these didn't detract from our holiday in any way.

February 2019

Excellent location in Polperro. The road into Polperro is extremely steep.

January 2019

Really enjoyed our stay, the cottage was very comfortable and warm. As tea drinkers we often find that the one thing missing is a tea cosy, that along with better quality bath towels would make it 120% perfect!

October 2018

Polperro is stunning and the views from the garden were lovely but felt that the cottage was a bit tired and needed some tlc as potentially it could be amazing.

September 2018

We had a lovely stay, the weather was a bit up and down but it did not spoil our week.

September 2018

It’s the perfect property - we expect to return!! Dog friendly, comfortable and a lovely caretaker. Lovely area and people. The lady at TH in Polperro very helpful getting us another cottage to move on to the following week. The whole booking process from start to finish was easy. Thank you.

September 2018

A great Cottage with the benefit of parking - would have been nice for the building work in the garden to be moved out if the way as it didn’t look like any work was being done but did not affect our enjoyment of the Cottage.

August 2018

The cottage was lovely and the location was perfect. We had 2 dogs with us and the garden was everything they needed. Sitting in the garden for breakfast with a sea view was lovely.

July 2018

Would recommend Michelle's in Polperro for evening meals.

June 2018

We had a wonderful weeks stay at 2 head o' Ditch cottage and can't wait to return next year for two weeks. The cottage was real home from home with everything and more for a wonderful stay. Beds was comfy, garden and views were to die for.....we even enjoyed the hill walk back to the cottage ???? fabulous communication with Jason the care taker

June 2018

The cottage was lovely, fantastic outside space and great views

June 2018


April 2018

Lovely position, and the garden and seating area excellent.

February 2018

Superb location, underfloor heating kept the cottage warm in January and February, both bedrooms spacious. Very generous size parking space. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage, our favourite so far in Polperro.

December 2017

Brilliant location and accommodation and views were stunning

October 2017

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay the cottage is so comfortable, we did not want to go out, and the garden just perfect so peaceful with stunning views. Would recommend it to anyone.

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!
