Something a bit different!

Book our best prices »







Completely refurbished ready for our first season in 2010 to a very high standard, all modifications meet the relevant safety standards and building regulations and have reduced our carbon footprint in many areas of the redesign. This includes double-glazed windows and doors, roof and wall insulation, and a heat recovery system. Where possible we have returned to traditional skills and building materials that befit a property first built around 1850. Regular maintenance and redecoration is undertaken during the year and in 2016 we made yet more improvements redesigning the stairs. We are pleased that we are able to offer accommodation more suited to asthma and allergy sufferers and therefore we have a strict non-smoking, no pets policy. Our cleaner doesn't wait for spring to do a spring clean!

Accommodates four people with:

Luxury Bathroom
Double Bedroom
Twin Bedroom
Kitchen and Dining room
Cottage Garden and BBQ area

The cottage is decorated with original art by local artists including paintings, photography and sculpture. More of which can be found at Artsake, but if you wish, you may also purchase some of the works in the cottage and take them away with you. Please contact us for details.

Sorgente comments 2017

"Dear Alex and Sabrina, we had a wonderful time in Cornwall and Sorgente was a lovely place for relaxing between our journeys. We really felt comfortable, the cottage is very well equipped. Thank you! Back home we will have a lot of pictures in our minds: the width of the sea, the beautiful landscape, lovely villages and even an english picnic (Food jam at Ennys Garden). Thank you for the welcome pack and your friendly and informative emails! "
