Coronavirus update

WE ARE OPEN - FOR BOOKINGS COMMENCING ON OR AFTER 10th JULY

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 recieve a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

We accept bookings only if all of the guests in the group come from one household. 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 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.

Please register for track and trace.

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

A cottage wouldn't be complete without a garden and ours can be a real sun trap. Overlooked by the double bedroom, the garden is easily accessible from the kitchen using the large sliding patio door. 

It has been redesigned and rebuilt using traditional Cornish hedging as the boundary walls. These are similar to dry stone walls because they use no mortar in their construction, although Cornish walls make use of the soil knitted together by the roots of wild plants and flowers. In our walls you will find many wild flowers and herbs, also useful in the Kitchen.

It is on two levels and we advise that children should be supervised especially on the upper level. The lower part, paved in black limestone, is an ideal spot for hanging out any washing or perhaps even your wet suits. You will find a storage box for the folded garden furniture.

During the 2016 season the BBQ (seen in the images on this website) was removed to create more usable space in the garden. A new BBQ space has been built into the wall, this may be used for your own portable/disposable charcoal barbecues.

Sorgente comments 2017

"We had a really lovely week staying at Sorgente Holiday Cottage. The welcome package was a very nice touch, the wine and scones lasted all of five minutes! The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard, we love the waterfall shower and enjoyed using the garden on a sunny evening. We will definitely recommend Sorgente to family and friends! Thanks for a lovely stay"

Sorgente comments 2016

"Being March we did not come to Cornwall for sun and sea, so the cosiness of Sorgente has been very welcome. Beautifully decorated and well-equipped, it has been a pleasure to stay here."
