Mandy and Steve are what makes this small but charming B&B a delight to stay at. We were given a very warm welcome, lots of advice, a great breakfast served with fresh walnut bread and croissants. We loved our overnight stay in a room with a view, very happy to return.

I wanted to visit the Eden Project and do some walking on the South West Coastal path. Polperro was a ideal location. I stopped at the House on the Props. My room was clean and comfortable and ideal for a single traveller. Mandy and Steve were great hosts and very helpful. They also run a restaurant on the site. Although... More

You can't visit Polperro without visiting the House on the Props.... It's in a beautiful location overlooking the harbour ...... There is always a warm welcome to be had and the best Lemon Meringue Pie ever ....... Thanks Mandy & Steve see you next year x

This is quirky accommodation in a great location - right at the head of the Polperro harbour, but it is more a restaurant with rooms than a B & B. The owners focus is the restaurant and it shows -our room needed a good clean. I would certainly eat at the restaurant again but would look elsewhere for accommodation.

Me and a friend stayed at House on the Props for two nights recently and were not disappointed! Mandy and Steve were very friendly and helpful and made us very welcome. Breakfast was to die for and would recommend smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, homemade walnut bread was yum too. Would definitely stay there again and for longer next time!... More

So glad we stopped off here. With a load of pubs to choose from we went in this one as the cake selection from the window looked amazing. The owner is one of the nicest blokes ive met. He really made us feel welcome and didn't rush us considering the pub was about to close. My wife had a choc... More

We were only booked in for one night but would have loved to have stayed longer. Steve and Mandy were great hosts and breakfast was delicious with home made bread. Our room was very clean and comfy and had everything that we needed. Look forward to visiting again. Thanks Dawn & Bill S

Having fallen in love with Polperro and being able to get 1 more day off work for our honeymoon we were looking for somewhere to stay for our last evening and we could not have found a better spot! We occupied the room on the top floor overlooking the beautiful harbour and we loved the style and the homely environment... More
