“Charming Cottage”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very well equipped charming cottage in beautiful surroundings with fantastic views and within easy access to other places of interest.. The attention to detail is superb.Loved the beach hut theme decor! Excellent communication and shared local knowledge from the owner with lots more information on site, - very helpful. The extra touches were appreciated - the cream tea on arrival was especially welcome. We were disappointed that due to the unpredictable weather we were unable to make use of the beautiful gardens.

“Practically perfect in every way”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

There's not a lot we can add, as we agree with everything that has been written before. The attention to detail is second to non. From the generous afternoon tea on arrival to the fairy lights in the garden and the stairs, as well as the copious leaflets and recommedations on where to visit, we couldn't have felt more welcome and comfortable.
The cottage is very tastefully decorated with a beach hut theme, which was just delightful.
It was an ideal location for many of the places we wanted to visit, such Charlestown, Fowey, The Lost Gardens and the Eden Project.

5 stars isn't enough, 6 / 5 would do it justice! Absolutely didn't want to leave.

“Perfect”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A wonderful holiday home. On arrival Pauline, the owner, had made sandwiches, cream tea, and strawberries and cream. We wanted for nothing, tea, coffee, sugar, bread, croissants, milk
And even a bottle of Cider and Champagne. The cottage had everything you could need. We didn't want to leave at the end of the holiday. Will definitely come back.

“Absolutely charming!”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Staying at Poltor cottage was the best decision of our vacation! My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and when we arrived, Pauline had decorated the kitchen with balloons, food, champagne, wine, and a miniature home-made cake! She also hand-crafted an anniversary card, which made a wonderful souvenir of our trip! The cottage itself was beautiful, as was the flower garden in the back patio. Lovely, quiet place to stay and well-located to major roads for site-seeing. I'm afraid that we're bound to be disappointed at our vacation rental; it will be hard to top this lovely place!

Of all the places we have stayed over the years none has exceeded our expectations, this did - we read all of the previous comments made on Trip Advisor before we made our choice - the welcome was very unexpected the food and drink went down well having had the worse journey anywhere in the world down from London - Clean - Quiet - A sun trap - A bit hilly for us cyclist but the clay trails and exploring off and on road great! - the whole of Cornwall is 1.75hrs max drive away - you get all the info for the owner that you need about the are but there is a mass of maps, books pamphlets on the whole area so no to bring your own - cds dvd on site for stero and tele - books to - and if you ask the owners will assist and supply.

“Amazing Cottage and Location”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014
3
people found this review helpful

After finding the property by looking through several websites, we thought it was going to be a lovely Cottage but you really do not realize how beautiful it is until you arrive.

The property is perfect in every way. There is so much space in the kitchen/diner leading through to the sitting room areas and both have wonderful views out across the countryside. The kitchen is well equipped and it makes it very easy to prepare and cook meals. Both bedrooms are a good size, beautifully decorated and well equipped again, the bathroom upstairs has a lovely bath with overhead shower and the on-suite downstairs is very nice. The utility room had a washer and dryer which really helped if we needed to wash any clothes or towels. The gardens are lovely and the patio makes a great space to eat or relax with the family. We even managed to fit both Ford Focus's on the drive but one car certainly fits easily.

The hosts were lovely. They were on hand to attend to every need but you never felt overlooked by them and could get on with your holiday in perfect peace and quiet. Not often do you get a perfect property and hosts but i can honestly say this is the case with Poltor Cottage. They had so much knowledge and made exploring very easy.

The location is fabulous, right up on the hill side with wonderful views down to the sea and surrounding area. It is perfectly placed to visit many of the surrounding attractions such as the Eden Project (10 minute drive) as well as lovely local beaches such as Polkeris (only 5 minute drive away and two great pubs on the beach side). Local towns such as Fowey and St Austell are very much worth a visit but the best has to be Mevagissy, a delightful small harbour town with lovely small shops and some great places to eat. Park in the main car park as you enter the town as the streets are very narrow and busy with people.

You do depend on the car to get around but it is certainly worth it. New Quay is only a short drive away and I would recommend the beautiful large beach at Perranporth. Again if visiting this beach, park at the garage as you drive in and there is a path over the road that leads direct to the beach. We also visited Penzace and St Ives which is about an hours drive, it really is the perfect base to explore the wonders of Cornwall.

St Austell and Bodmin have local supermarkets such as Asda and Morrisons which makes shopping very easy.

If you are looking to book a lovely quiet cottage in the countryside, with easy access to many lovely areas, this certainly ticks all boxes.
