“Weekend away for 4 with 11 month baby”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Nice quaint but small house right in the village overlooking the harbour and opposite the blue peter pub few steps to the front door then more stairs to two bedrooms and more stairs up to lounge and kitchen which are all small and narrow ,this cottage is ideal for a small family or small couples as the ensuites in each bedroom are ok if ur 5ft or less we were all taller than that and it was very uncomfortable and a challenge having showers as they are very low and one has a beam right in the middle of the ceiling where shower is so watch your heads ,beds were very comfy but it was cold at night think they need new storage heaters , no heating in one bedroom at all to be fair only warm room was lounge where the electric Fire is which was brill ,kitchen was ok could do with more pots & pans though and no cupboard space for food except fridge also not really child friendly did ask for stairgate ,high hair ,and travel cot ,but was only told could do cot for £20 so we took our own ,plus had to buy a travelling high chair ,but they defiantly need a stair gate where the bedrooms are if you have infants ,the lounge has a door so its safe up there .

Management Response
Nov 7, 2013
We thank you for your feedback on the experience at Mariners with an infant. Mariners is not the ideal choice for a toddler being a 3 storey cottage (there fore 2 flights of stairs) and this was explained at the time of booking. Most of our child friendly cottage offer free use of cots, high chairs and stair gates but Mariners does not own these so they have to be hired from the house management company hence the offer to hire them for £20. The heating is all electric as is the case in most of the harbour cottages as there is no gas or oil facilities. Storage heaters are provided in every room except one of the bedrooms (the one you mentioned) which has a free standing electric convector heater. Storage heaters work well provided they are set correctly and from time to time the settings do get changed by guests and their efficiency can be affected. It appears the free standing heater was moved and a simple call to the house manager would have rectified this situation, we don't expect or wish our guests to feel cold when staying in any of our cottages has they all have more than sufficient heating available. The kitchen does have a free corner cupboard for storage and we have asked the house manager to check the supply of utensils. We want all of our guests to have the best holiday experience they can in Polperro and we urge the to contact us to resolve any matters that are not to their full satisfaction while they are in the cottage so we can rectify them as soon as we can. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Polperro again in the future.
