"Our guests loved the property and we had an excellent time. The quality and the standard of the property was excellent." - Amanda
We stayed at Polpier & Penpol in Cornwall - the booking process was straightforward (a few more hoops to jump through with covid but that’s to be expected) - however the property and welcome more than made up for it. The houses are incredible, with beautiful views - everyone had such a special stay. However, our stay would not have been the same without the help of the property manager Amanda who was brilliant throughout, she made our stay so much better with her warm welcome, immaculate housekeeping, kindness and helpfulness throughout the planning process. She also prepared a superb breakfast on our departure day which made the drive back to London a lot easier! Thanks to Amanda and her team for making the weekend so wonderful. - Louise

Cornwall is its own entertainment

If the house isn’t enough, lose yourself in the Lost Gardens of Heligan or marvel at the Eden Project. Potter down for a pint in the quaint fishing village of Mevagissey, walk the coastal path, take the ferry to Fowey for fresh fish. Cornwall is its own entertainment.
