“Super apartment”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Can't fault this flat. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and lovely décor. Free car park permit for the main Polperro car park only a few minutes walk away and only 3 minutes walk from the Crumplehorn Inn - what more could you want? Thank you, Jo and Mark for your hospitality, hope to return.

“Great little place in a fabulous location.”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a great stay at the Ryder. The hosts were very friendly and helpful leaving a lovely welcome cream tea for us. Everything was clean and well maintained with an information pack about the area to help you out. Walking distance to the town but there is a hill to reach the Ryder which may not be suitable for some. We would recommend and return.

“All you could ever need”
Reviewed May 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Lovely stay, comfy bed, good self catering facilities, warm welcome, ideal location for exploring and then coming home to walking distance pubs with great food and drinks. Will absolutely be returning to Cornwall and Polperro, as feel like we didn't scratch the surface. Just be warned if you are used to the relative flats of Norfolk and Suffolk, the terrain can be a little challenging!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were looking forward to our week in Cornwall and from previous comments thought they'd be no problems. We arrived to be told we had to park down in the car park .The property is on an extremely steep hill !!! Due to that after a day out and getting back ,the thought of going out again wasn't on the agenda!!! I have to say that we did have extras that you wouldn't expect ie washing up liquid ,cloth etc and we were supplied with a lovely cream tea but overall , the property could really do with some tlc and an update!! The kitchen is tired , the carpets could do with actually being fitted properly so the grippers aren't exposed!!! I appreciate were in Cornwall but this property could be so much nicer with some updating and money put back into it .

Management Response
Oct 2, 2015
We were very disappointed to receive this review, especially as on leaving you told us that you'd had a great time and had really enjoyed your holiday. If you had raised any issues with us when you were here, we would have had a chance to address them. Unfortunately the first we have heard about them is in this review. With regard to the parking, we make it very clear that a parking permit is provided for the main village car park, which is only a few minutes' walk away. We provide a permit for this, which would otherwise cost around £32 for the week. We are on a hill - this is Cornwall after all, and there are lots of them about - but it is only about a 3-minute walk to the nearest pub and there are plenty of other pubs and restaurants within another ten minutes' walk, so we are surprised you felt going out in the evening was off the agenda. We are also sorry that you felt that the apartment needed an update, as we are constantly reinvesting, updating and improving our property, and we will be doing so again this winter. We have received many compliments about our property, as you no doubt read in our guest book, and we also have many happy returning guests, so we are sorry that the apartment was not for you.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Great little cottage, very clean, comfy bed, and well equipped kitchen. All great foundations for a fabulous break!

The apartment is in a quiet area on the edge of town and is a very pleasant short walk in to the centre.

Polperro is a lovely little village that retains a local feel and you get a very friendly welcome everywhere you go. There's lovely walks you can do around the cost. Don't leave without trying a pasty from the bakery, they are delicious!

We will look forward to returning to this cottage.
A great car and traffic free break!
