“Wonderful Honeymoon!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Just to say we had a fantastic few days away on our "mini-moon" to polperro and we were delighted with The Cottage! We stayed in the 'honeymoon room' which is isolated from the main building with its own patio area. It was very quiet and peaceful up there; just what was needed after the madness of wedding planning! The staff are very welcoming and helpful and breakfast was lovely with nothing being too much trouble for the kitchen to come out with. We will definitely be re-visiting! It was a perfect break- thank you :)

This was our third stay in The Cottage, and this review is long overdue.
This is, quite simply, the best B&B in the country - that's not an overstatement or exaggeration, it's a fact!
Situated centrally in the lovely village of Polperro, Pam and Dave take huge pride in the place and the standards here are as high as you can get. The rooms are decorated beautifully, I'm sure Pam takes as much and more pride and care in planning the decor in her guest rooms as her own! Everything is clean and spotless and the rooms are full of those little touches that no other B&B owner thinks of, that make all the difference .. Pam and Dave just know how to do it right!
Breakfasts are great, but they should be, Dave has a background in catering in top London hotels. My wife loves absolutely loves the stewed mixed fruit, before the full English.
The building itself is a traditional olde world rendered White flower festooned cottage, easily one of the prettiest buildings in Polperro, where everywhere looks charming. Some rooms are in an annexe to the rear and our favourite, the wooden lodge at the top of the garden. It's nice that you can come and go directly to your rooms without entering through the front door and disturbing others.
You get a free parking pass for the car park at the top of the village for the duration of your stay, essential as Polperro is car free and you can take your car out and return any time and park easily.
The hosts are lovely people and I think much of their custom, like us, is from people that just love the place and can't get through the Summer without a visit. My only regret is that we never visited when the evening restaurant was operating, I would have loved to try a meal there.
Pam and Dave, thank you for making three very memorable holidays, I suspect you'll be seeing more of us in the future!

Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage B&Bin Polperro. Pam & Dave are brilliant hosts and very accomodating! We have stayed there twice now and would not hesitate to go back. Breakfast was superb and parking was also included in the price of the stay. Would recommend highly.

Well we could not fault our stay at all. From the welcome we had when we arrived to when we left everything was just superb. The room and facilities were sumptuous. Our every need was provided for. The breakfast was absolutely delicious from the fresh fruit to the cooked meal. Would still be there now if we could and will certainly return. Thank you so much

The title says it all. Also we got some good driving directions for the local area. We'll run place, also very helpful with local parking and traffic arrangements - very important in this little town!

Only stayed for one night on 4th July as travelling on business.
A warm welcome

Breakfast wasn't just breakfast, it was breakfast cooked for us.
Will be back at some point.
Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and 100% value for money.
Pity there are not more B & B's of this quality.
Even though had an accident in the room, it was not a problem for them.
I hope they read this review as we would like to say a big big thank you.

Room Tip: Room on the front was fantastic.

As many have said, this is the perfect place to stay, comfortable beds for a good nights sleep (till the seagulls wake up) and the breakfasts were scrumptious. Wifi was a bit touch and go while we were there, worked in our room, but not in our friends, but we could cope with that. Nice short walk to the harbour and lots of local eateries and pubs, ahhhh, great
