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

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

"A most enjoyable stay at Sorgente, definitely something a bit different! A lot of thought has gone into the design layout of the cottage and it's environmental imprint. The information graphics were very helpful and easy to understand. The fresh cut flowers were very welcoming, a big thank you to Alex and family."

"Thank you for a fab little holiday cottage to stay in. We have had an amazing time. My first visit to Cornwall and now I understand why my cousin moved here 5 years ago. We really can't wait to come back."
