Coronavirus update

WE ARE NOT TAKING BOOKINGS WHICH COMMENCE ON OR BEFORE 14th FEBRUARY 2021

You may book to stay after that date, however, due to future guidance we receive from local or national government and health advisers, we may have to cancel your stay. In those cases you would receive a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

If you do not believe in following all the Covid rules and restrictions, do not book this cottage.

We accept bookings only if all of the guests in the group come from one household not exceeding 4 including infants. Extra visitors or guests are not allowed under any circumstances. You must state at the time of booking how many guests there will be and their names. It will not be possible to add guests later. If you book for two guests then ONLY those two guests may enter the property.

We also ask that guests do not put themselves at risk and therefore those guests which arrive after their departure. Face masks to be worn over nose and mouth at all times outside of both your home and ours. Avoid crowded places and take home all your litter from the beach or other places of interest.

Please register for track and trace - we have our own QR code in the cottage.

We understand that booking a holiday may be a difficult decision for many due to the restrictions of cancellation policies. Please take out a suitable insurance policy before you book. We are offering all new direct bookings (effected by lockdown rules or contracting Covid-19) the flexibility to change their bookings at anytime up to one week before check-in without further charge, or a credit towards a future booking taken within 18 months of cancellation. Our agent's will have their own booking terms.

Our cottage will undergo full sanitization at the end of each stay, however we ask that guests now remove all bedding, towels, bath mats, oven gloves etc and place them in a tied sack at the end of their stay prior to departure. You no longer have to sort the recycling as our waste management company does that for you. So ALL waste now goes into the same dustbin sack, including unused hand soaps, and tied securely. This will help reduce the risk to our staff and next guests.

Thank you!

Holiday essentials

Sorgente is an Italian word meaning SOURCE, usually used for water source but can also be used for the source of energy. Our bathroom was not the reason we chose this name for our holiday cottage but you'd be forgiven for thinking so! We have high water pressure and a large gas combi boiler that delivers copious amounts of water through our rain shower.

We added the luxury of a bidet and a bath large enough for two and to avoid using shower curtains. Tiled completely using Italian porcelain adds to the luxurious experience, bathing not only in water but also in lots of light, including natural light from a large skylight window.

Due to the heat recovery system there are no noisy fans each time you switch on the light and no more steamy mirrors!

The bathroom is upstairs convieniently situated between the twin bedroom and the master bedroom.

Please note: The bath is high-sided and wide, the contemporary shower is not walk-in and there are no hand rails. There are no shower curtains, the floor gets wet yes, but under normal use even with very enthusiastic kids, the amount never forms puddles and dries quickly. These things should be considered carefully if any guests are elderly and/or physically infirm.

Sorgente comments 2018

"Enjoyed a lovely week holiday at Sorgente. Very comfortable and convenient location. Nice meal at Working Boat and pleasant walk to Flushing and Mylor around the headland. Thank you for our Welcome Pack!."

Sorgente comments 2017

"Thank you very much for a lovely holiday in your charmingly renovated cottage. The purpose of our visit to Cornwall was to attend a family wedding at Pendennis Castle. It was a beautiful meaningful ceremony which included a 2 gun salute to the happy couple. The reception at the Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth was superb. We would certainly recommend this hotel for a special dinner. Sunday brunch at Muddy Beach was great fun, followed by a ride in the Water Taxi to Falmouth. Kids would love this! A day going to St.Ives and another to St.Michael's Mount were also memorable! We will recommend Sorgente highly."

"A lovely wee holiday home. Warm cosy and well equipped. We have fallen in love with Cornwall but, sadly it is now time to continue on our travels."
