As a location, East Cliff couldn't be bettered - wonderful sea views and direct access to the coast, and Polperro is delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Easter, when the path outside was very busy but never disruptive. In the evenings it was very quiet and beautiful. Some people might baulk at the amount of walking and carrying luggage involved in getting to and from the cottage but that didn't bother us unduly. It's refreshing to have to make a bit of effort, and in the case of East Cliff it's well worth it. In the cottage everything was delightful, very clean and well-appointed but anyone over 5'8" needs to watch their heads in the shower, the staircases and near the light in the kitchen! There were one or two irresponsible dog owners passing on the path outside who didn't clean up their dog's mess, which seems to be an ongoing issue at Polperro. Shame on those owners.

As above, will RETURN as soon as we can.

November 2018

Loved our stay and will definitely come back again. Only wish Polperro could get to grips with the dog poo problem!

August 2018

We very much enjoyed our stay.

July 2018

We enjoyed it very well. Polperro is really a lovely small village. Many thanks for the Pub old Millhouse Inn. Very friendly people in the village. Only the Car Park is very expensive with 40,- Pounds per week. Guests should think for the horrible traffic from Dover to Cornwall. We needed 11 hours. And do not feed the seagulls. Some tourists forget that.

Excellent cottage, views spectacular. Recommend the bakery, best bread, ever. 5 years on each visit gets better, the sun always shines too

May 2018

A lovely cottage with fantastic views.

December 2017

We really enjoyed our stay and were prepared for a 3 star finish not being the same as 4 star (obviously!). The cottage was mostly very comfortable, as was the bed. The location was superb and overall we found the cottage very homely, cosy and warm - even in December. However, the sofa bed in the sitting room was very difficult to relax on as it has no arms, and we couldn't get the radio in the kitchen to work. We had a lovely short break - thank you Toad Hall :)

June 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the cottage was lovely and the position fantastic even in a storm!

August 2016

Second visit , last came in October, this cottage is perfect, wellequipped and the situ is second-to-none, the view is stunning , no need to watch tv, just sit on window seats and enjoy sea, cliffs and village scenery. Thankyou to Ruth for sharing her property. We will be back again !

August 2016

A fantastic holiday in the best location you could imagine, fantastic views from cottage, sun outside untill late evening. A special holiday. Thankyou

January 2016

Please convey our thanks to the cleaner who attended early on boxing day to prepare the cottage. We were able to move in from our previous let quickly and settle in. This was much appreciated.

July 2014

Loved our stay at East Cliff. Fantastic views from the kitchen, sitting room and main bedroom. Would recommend this cottage to anyone thinking of taking a holiday in Polperro.

November 2013

Perfect retreat. No phone, no internet, Polperro quiet as a mouse! The ideal place to really relax out of season.

July 2013

Our stay in Polperro was fabulous and your representative there was excellent and so very friendly and helpful!

May 2013

Please pass on my thanks to Ruth, the owner. She has a lovely little cottage which my family absolutely loved. She also organised for us to park a second car just up the road from her house, we were much appreciative of this. We will definately book East Cliff Cottage again. Brilliant.
