“Lovely people, lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Jo, who immediately offered us a warm drink after our long journey.The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was yummy, with a good choice!
Jo and Mark are lovely people who make you feel welcome and comfortable. I would certainly recommend this B&B to anyone.

This is a very nice B&B just on the edge of Polperro. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Jo who showed us to our room and was on hand to offer any advice we might need. The room wasn't huge but was clean and had everything in it that we needed.

Breakfast was served in the conservatory and there was a good range on offer. It was lovely that they offered a full vegetarian breakfast on the menu - it's rare to get this and so was much appreciated!

The only negative I would say is that the toilet in the room had a macerator fitted which seemed to kick in randomly through the night and was quite noisy!

No praise is too high for the owners of The Cottles. They run the loveliest B&B in the loveliest little Cornish town of Polperro. Mark and Jo will feed you well and make you comfortable, give you advice on walking or sightseeing and show you gentleness and kindness that's rare in British hospitality. Watch out Moffatt - we'll be back !

We stayed in the Cottles for one night on our trip around Cornwall.
The Room was very clean, comfortable and was reasonably priced.
The owners are a very nice couple who are very friendly and helpful.
Nothing was too much trouble. The room was quiet and peaceful.
They offer a full cooked vegetarian breakfast which was lovely and unusual for most B&B’s we have stayed in. We have no hesitation in highly recommending the Cottles and would definitely stay again. Many Thanks !

A fabulous find! The Cottles is run by Mark & Jo - the friendliest B&B owners you could ever wish to meet. A great sized room with good bathroom. A fully stocked tea tray with the added touch of free bottled water and after dinner mints. The breakfast is first class, freshly cooked, local produce and a selection of cereals, juices and yoghurt, all eaten in a bright conservatory over looking the valley. Access to The Cottles is up a fairly sharp incline, so the private parking is very useful. Fabulously located close to the main carpark in Polperro where the tram goes down the hill to the harbour area. Would definitely stay again!
