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) Once you're at the cottage everything is just a short walk away, shops, Inns, cafes, restaurants, the harbour, beach and coastal paths - you can enjoy car free time in the resort.
