Sorgente Cornish Holiday Cottage

2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Penryn, Falmouth, Cornwall, England
Completely refurbished and extended for our first season in 2010, with major improvements and further refurbishments in 2016. Sorgente combines the beauty of period features with state-of-the-art amenities such as a heat recovery system (benefiting allergy/asthma suffers) and a Pozzani water filter. Solid oak flooring, traditional sash windows and thick stone walls create a timeless backdrop for a modern interior with a distinctly Mediterranean flavor, inspired by our time spent in Italy. The spacious open plan living room is equipped with a wood-burning stove and leads to the fully equipped kitchen with patio doors opening to a sunny enclosed garden with BBQ and furniture. Upstairs there are a double and twin bedroom providing a high degree of comfort with quality mattresses and bed linens. The luxurious, well lit, bathroom which include... Read more

About the neighborhood
Historic background to the area.
Originally called Peny-cwm-cuic, which later became 'Pennycomequick', it was the site where Henry VIII built Pendennis Castle to defend Carrick Roads, in 1540. The main town was at Penryn with Sir John Killigrew creating the town of Falmouth shortly after 1613. In the late 16th century, under threat from the Spanish Armada, the defences at Pendennis were strengthened by the building of angled ramparts. During the Civil War, Pendennis Castle was the second to last fort to surrender to the Parliamentary Army.
The Falmouth Packet Service operated out of Falmouth for over 160 years between 1689 and 1851. Its purpose was to carry mail to and from Britain's growing empire. As the most south-westerly good harbour in Great Britain Falmouth was often t...
Getting around
We recommend using a car to explore this part of Cornwall. It is possible also to use public transport, there is a branch line from Truro which services Penryn and Falmouth. From Truro it is possible to travel towards Penzance or Plymouth. Buses also run to these places and many more in between, however the journey time eats away at your precious holiday time. Main bus station is in Falmouth but all buses from there pass through Penryn, either along Commercial Road, up through Penryn town centre. Penryn train station is a steep climb from the cottage, but close.
Car advised
How to get there
If you are driving from London or its airports, you may consider stopping off at Stonehenge which is a little under half way on the A303. This route is usually better than using the motorways M4 and M5. Its about 5 hours drive from Gatwick Airport maybe longer in peak traffic times.
