Coronavirus update

WE ARE OPEN FOR BOOKINGS WHICH START ON OR AFTER 10th JULY

However, should the guidance we receive from local or national government and health advisers, we may have to cancel your stay. In those cases you would recieve a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

We also ask that guests do not put themselves at risk and therefore those guests which arrive after your depature. 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.

We understand that booking a holiday may be a difficult decision for many due to the restrictions of cancellation policies. Please take out a cancellation insurance policy before you book. For this period of uncertainty, we are offering all new bookings the flexibility to change their bookings at anytime up to two weeks before check-in without further charge, or a credit towards a future booking taken within 18 months of cancellation.

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. Unused hand soaps to be placed in the general rubbish and again the sack must be tied. 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

"We have had a very pleasant stay here at Sorgente. It was an ideal base for touring around the area and we have packed quite a few places into our short stay. The cottage was homely and had everything we needed except reading lamps, which would have been a welcome addition for evenings in front of the fab log fire !! Thanks for the welcome pack too!"

"Thank you very much for a great time away. I grew up in Truro Hill next door! I am now back with my husband for our honeymoon and it was great showing him where I grew up. The house is amazing. A great home away from home. Thank you!"
