Excellent a true Gem x
The office staff are friendly and helpful, glenco itself was clean and tidy, downstairs and the bathroom are very modern and upto date, however the bedrooms do need updating and the ship in the glass case getting rid off! Having said that I would stay here again, it’s in the right walking location for shops restaurants and pubs.
Cottage was spotless!!! Fantastic place to stay, could not fault it.
Great stay took on out points from the last stay which was great. Would love to come back again. Living room furniture looks much better arranged that way.
It was very nice, thank you, we will recommend you... :-)
We found the beds in this property to be of very poor standard. They don't feel like they last 50 year's, we ended up using the duvet as extra padding because they were so incredibly uncomfortable. Having said that the cottage is beautiful and in a fantastic location. We had a great holiday there.
We are so glad you enjoyed the cottage and thank you for letting us know about the beds, I am happy to say that all of the beds now have new mattresses.

We found Glencoe to be very well looked after, and cosy for a winter holiday. It was just perfect for our requirements. We did not need to contact the caretakers but the cottage had been prepared beautifully for our arrival.
What a fantastic cottage and fantastic week we had in Polperro!!The rooms in the attic were perfect for my daughter and her friend, and the rest of the cottage was faultless. The downstairs shower and bathroom facilities were useful having 5 people in the house, and we can only imagine how cosy the place is in winter months. The property is perfectly situated for a very short walk to the harbour and fantastic restaurants. You must dine in the Kitchen and Blue Peter Inn. The only small fault we had was that if someone was having shower downstairs then you couldn't have a shower upstairs for hours after - as the water was cold. With 5 people in the house, sometimes this was un-avoidable. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return!!! Nice ice cream parlour opposite.
We had a lovely time staying at Glencoe. Perfectly located close to everything! Felt like a local for the week. Comfortable, clean and really homely. Would definitely stay here again with no hesitation. Handy having a washer/drier. Really recommend, thanks
