“Beautiful view”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our original choice of cottage had been withdrawn so we opted for the Moorings due to its location. We know Polperro well and booked for the festival week. The cottage was clean with good facilities and the long balcony afforded stunning views of the harbour - wonderful when the tide was in, as you could chat to people moving their boats a few feet from you. The main bedroom is spacious but the property details do not expect you having people walk directly passed your window! The layout is very strange, there is another property over your kitchen yet the main bedroom is over the sitting room . . .difficult to explain, but the property above is accessed by steps outside the bedroom window. None of the toilets/bathroom/shower room have frosted glass so had to keep blinds down. Patio chairs left on balcony covered in seagull muck, as they fold flat I felt they should have been left in the kitchen. We took kitchen chairs out each time and returned them. I liked the property very much but would not recommend for 4 people as the twin room is only a single in size and if you did wish to pull the other bed out you would have to remove the bedside table and have no floor space. The equipment was of a good standard, the bed comfortable and a big bonus was the parking space not too far away -a real plus in Polperro! I would certainly recommend the rental company, booked through Giles, and the property managers - Steve/Linda sent a text to say property was available an hour earlier than expected. Excellent service.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay in The Moorings. The layout of the cottages you mentioned is indeed quite unusual, although not uncommon in Cornwall. The Moorings enjoys a superb location on the harbour and the balcony is a great attractions to guests (and unfortunately sea gulls too!). The second bedroom is perfect as a single but can accommodate 2 guests when converted to a twin. It isn't ideal as a twin that is certain but the rest of the cottage is perfect for 4 guests and with 3 toilets and 2 bath/shower rooms the accommodation is very comfortable for families if consider the bedroom is only for sleeping in. I hope we can welcome you regular Polperro visitors back again soon and I hope your enjoyed all of the activities and music on offer during the Festival.
