I really liked the rain shower! It was like standing in the rain. I normally hate the shower! By Libby Age 10. The cottage is lovely, and I would like to stay here again! I also liked the slippers!

A nostalgic trip down memory lane for my partner - who came regularly to Falmouth as a child. A first for myself and our daughter - and we would love to come again (I'm sure we will). St Mawes for cream tea; Pendennis Castle and Point - amazing views, a coastal walk along from Maenporth - beautiful. We managed to get a lot in from this excellent location. The cottage suited us down to the ground and we felt very at home here. The welcome tray was lovely to arrive to and our first cream tea of many during our stay. I will miss them greatly. Our little girl - Chloe - seems to have felt very happy here too - and loved the enormous bath. Many thanks and hope the next visitors have as good a time as we have. The Hairsines.

Our first visit to Cornwall for a long time and a great cottage for a fantastic part of Cornwall. Highly recommend Mylor Boat Hire and going to Pandora Inn by boat, and swimming in the creek around there, was a great day out. Highly recommend Swanpool beach over Gylly or Maenporth, lovely cafe, water sports, easy, cheap all day parking. Now we've been here, I just wish we booked for a fortnight! Many thanks, The Egans.

We had a very nice time here and we enjoyed staying at your nice little house. Everything was really clean and at it's place! Thanks for the scones and the flowers! All the best from Walter, Lili and Andrea from Germany.

We had a lovely week even if it was raining nearly all the time! :-) We spontaneously decided about our daily plans according to the current weather conditions. We managed to visit Glendurgan and Trebah gardens (can recommend it) and also Eden Project. Some nice little villages have been on our tours as well. Thanks and all the best, Britta and Claudia (Germany).

A great little cottage with everything you could need and nicely decorated. We are grateful for recommendations left by the others. Places we recommend are Ferryboat Inn (Helford Passage), Towan beach near St Mawes, St Ives for beaches, shops and the Tate. Also for a local trip Mylor harbour and the Pandora Inn at Mylor Bridge are worth visiting. We also took a day trip to beautiful Scilly Isles but beware it is a 6 hour round trip by boat from Penzance so may be worth taking helicopter if the budget will stretch to it. Miss Peapods is as good as everyone says - a real find. Thanks Jon and Laura (Bristol) P.s. Thanks for cream tea and wine.

We've had a very special last-minute holiday at Sorgente, and struck lucky with this lovely cottage, and a week of great weather. Very thoughtfully equipped with generous touches - thanks for the cream tea on arrival, fresh flowers and wine. It was also a great cottage for our 17 month old with stair gates and highchair coming in very handy. The cottage inspired her to start walking properly for the first time, and she hasn't stopped since! Particularly enjoyed: Helford Passage - lovely little quiet cove and beach, watched the ferry coming to and fro, had brilliant lunch at the Ferryboat Inn, delicious sea-food. We walked down to Helford from Glendurgan Gardens, which were beautiful, huge steep valleys of tropical plants, excellent maze, a lovely pace to explore. Also our trip over to Roseland Penninsula via the King Harry ferry - beautiful drive to St Mawes harbour, visited the castle there and enjoyed fabulous view, great walk along cliff top to coved beaches from St Anthony Head, lighthouse over at Place. Eden Project we visited 7 years ago, just as great this time and our toddler loved it too. Another wonderful day in ST Ives, visiting the Tate, Barbara Hepworth Garden, amazing golden beach with turquoise water. This area is so beautiful and has lots to offer, but also very well placed for these trips further afield - about 45 minutes to St Ives and Eden. Thanks again, Helen, Colin and Lucy Welch (Shoreham, Sussex). P.s. Also lovely meal at Miss Peapods Cafe overlooking estuary 5 minutes down the road.

Thank you for the wonderful accommodation, very well equipped place. We have enjoyed our week stay! Thank you for the welcoming tray, we really enjoyed it! Many thanks Sarah, Daniel and Amelia Metherell.

This is our second visit to the cottage and it was as we remembered it - a place to relax and unwind. We have really enjoyed our week here and managed to dodge the showers. Thank you very much for the use of your cottage. Diana and Tony.

We've had a lovely stay at Sorgente. The wine and scones were a lovely touch and went down a treat. The location is good for getting around and we visited many place during the week. I would recommend the Bissoe Cycle path to anyone, we had a great day out and it was suitable for the children for the children. Thank you Liz, Graham, Alex and Daniel Jones (Wirral). P.s. Pandora Inn in Mylor is a must, great food and great location.

Really enjoyed our stay at Sorgente. The cottage is beautifully finished - especially love the rain shower. It was very nice to be welcomed with scones, cream, jam and a very nice bottle of red! The week truly felt like we'd picked up our house and moved it to the coast - everything you needed was there including the washing machine and hair dryer! Wouldn't think twice about coming back! Thank you so much. Richard, Lorraine, Thomas and William.

Another lovely stay at Sorgente (our third) it is a great base for us when visiting our daughter at Tremough Campus. Our routine includes cocktails at Number 20, dinner at Wheelhouse and breakfast at Miss Peapods. New for us this week was the Barbara Hepworth museum at St Ives - fantastic! Many thanks Matthew and Suzanne.

We have had a lovely time here. We've enjoyed: a circular walk around Mawnan Smith and the river, ending at Glendurgan Gardens - outside cafe a bit chilly despite blankets so we had lunch at Trebah instead. Woodland walk around Trelissick - although sadly, the ferry from Falmouth wasn't operating in February. The seal sanctuary at Gweek - penguins too! Pendennis castle - short walk from Falmouth Docks station - then short walk to Gyllyngvase beach and cafe, train back from Falmouth town. Fantastic walk starting at Carwinian Gardens, out to Rosemullion Head, Tollpoint and back up the Carminian valley. Owner is happy for car to be parked at gardens if you're visiting them after a walk. Several beaches for stone skimming towards end of walk! Raze the Roof followed by Maritime Museum! Seth, Michelle, Nathan and Millie - Bristol.

Thank you, we had a warm, comfortable stay here in Sorgente, which is a lovely well-thought out, well-equipped and contemporary home. Sorgente has suited us all very well - a fantastic, tranquil and relaxing environment. So wish we were all staying longer. With best wishes, Sonia, Mike and Sofia.

We had a great time at Sorgente cottage

The communication was super easy and quick and the place looks exactly like it does on the pictures. The neighbourhood is very conveniently located and although it’s a lively neighborhood the apartment is very quiet! Would absolutely recommend to stay there!

Sorgente liegt ideal, um den Süden Cornwalls zu erkunden

Das Haus verfügt über alles, was man braucht, um sich im Urlaub wohl zu fühlen. Es war sauber und wie in der Beschreibung ausgestattet. Die Kommunikation mit Alex verlief schnell und problemlos.

September 2018


We had a lovely stay at Sorgente

When we first arrived we noticed how well the cottage had been refurbished and also loved the welcome pack including wine, scones and fresh flowers. Our favourite part of the cottage had to be the bathroom with its waterfall shower and relaxing decor. Although we had our own car, Alex is very helpful with car hire if you need any. Overall we had a fabulous stay at Sorgente and have already discussed returning again in the future. Would highly recommend.

A lovely house close to Falmouth and Flushing

The house is beautifully decorated with a cute courtyard. There's a lovely near on the Marina a short walk away. Alexs communication was great I'd highly recommend this house.

We had a great stay at the cottage!

As most people likely arrive in car, we were able to get parking right outside every night, which was very convenient. Great location for exploring Cornwall.

Lovely property, clean, quiet and well located

Good location, a clean, tranquil cottage. Well equipped and very accurate, understandable instructions for usage of all the facilities. Would recommend and would stay there again.

Sorgente is a lovely Cornish cottage with a mixture of period charm and contemporary facilities

The cottage is extremely clean and well equipped. A lot of thought has clearly gone in to making this a home away from home. The neighbourhood is quite, but also very handy for transport links, both by road and rail. The town of Penryn is only a few minutes walk away. We enjoyed a great holiday with Sorgente as our base. Most definitely highly recommended. Thank you.

Sorgente was a well located and clean house to stay for our holiday

It was comfortable for our family - (2 kids 8 & 12.) The bathroom is lovely and spacious and the kitchen was pretty well equipped for the size. Really pleased as it was allergy free which is not always that easy to come across.
April 2016


Lovely cosy stay, spacious for a couple

Very well maintained, luxury bathroom. Made to feel very welcome, even had a high chair out for us on arrival. Quick walk into penryn local shops or supermarket 1 mile away. We will definitely be back, thank you Alex
March 2016


We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Sorgente over the New Year!

The cottage is delightful in every way: comfortable and modern, functional and welcoming, clean and cosy. It was exactly what we wanted in a wonderful area of Cornwall that we were able to explore despite the weather. We would love to come back in the summer and experience the loooooong days instead of the long nights. I am sure Sorgente would be equally as excellent! Thank you.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sorgente Cottage over the christmas period

The cottage is exactly as described and we wouldn't hesitate the stay again in the future. Alex ensured that we had all the information we needed and even arranged for a Xmas tree for our stay...thank you Alex! The cottage is close to the local shops and park and in a quiet area. Thank you for our lovely holiday. Alex & Kelly

What a lovely place to stay

Quiet and homely and very well equipped (the bathroom was my favourite!) .. Definitely felt like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Cornwall. Thank you!
October 2015


Sorgente is a very nice appartment which is well-fitted and clean!

All rooms are comfortably furnished with modern amenities! Pennryn is a nice village with everything needed nearby and in the heart of Cornwall. Our tipp: Have a relaxed day at the St. Ives Bay beach near Hayle (search for Blue Bay Cafe)! Matthias and family.

Sorgente is a great place to stay: very clean, modern, warm and comfortable

It's well located in Penryn and dealing with Alex was great. I was working while in town, so it was great to come back to such a lovely place each evening. I particularly liked the choice of artwork!

"Good location"
July 2017
The location of the cottage is good, Falmouth is a short drive away as are several lovely beaches and gardens. The cottage is well equipped with essentials and was clean.


"A wonderful and relaxing place to stay"
November 2016
We stayed 1 week at the beginning of November at the Sorgente Cottage. We enjoyed every single minute of our stay. Everything in the house is arranged to make the guests` stay as comfortable as possible. The cottage is very clean and when we arrived, fresh flowers, scones and clotted cream were waiting for us. A large folder with all the instructions explains how everything works. The location is close to Falmouth and close to a range of supermarkets (by car). We had a very enjoyable time at this wonderful place. All communication with the owners was excellent.


"Joli cottage à Penryn"
August 2015
Nous avons passé une semaine en juillet dans ce cottage que nous avons apprécié. Il est très bien équipé (il y a une machine à laver) et très propre, très bien aménagé. Au rez de chaussée un espace à vivre très confortable avec une cuisine très bien équipée, une salon avec deux canapés, la TV et le wifi. A l'étage deux chambres et une salle de bain super. Le cottage est très calme et paisible. Il y aune petite cour extérieure. Il faut y venir en voiture pour profiter de la région. A Penryn il y a à proximité pour les courses un Lidl. A quelques minutes en voiture Falmouth.


"Perfect retreat"
June 2015
The cottage was beautifully furnished and finished to a high standard. It was in easy reach of Falmouth and there is a good bus service. Lots of various activities in the local area. Perfect place for a llovely week of peace and relaxation. Highly recommended.


"Fabulous place, very clean!"
February 2015
It was our first holiday together as friends and we absolutely loved it so much that we are all saving up ready to book again for next year! The house is beautiful and that bathroom is to die for! All very clean and labels everywhere to help with all the appliances. It is situated on a hill so parking was tricky but nothing extreme. Lots of beautiful beaches; very close as well! And a Londis right at the bottom of the street in case of any emergency things we needed. The only "negative" thing I can say is that the stairs in the holiday home were very difficult and somewhat dangerous to go down on but other than that it is near perfect. I was also under the impression that the house keeper was going to meet us before we arrived but none the less I'm sure that if we did have any problems she would be there for us. Very much enjoyed out stay, wanted to stay longer! We would all like to say a big thank you and we will most definitely be coming again.

UPDATE: the stairs were reversed in 2016. They are no longer steep.

November 2014Maison très bien équipée, bonne literie, belle salle de bain, petite cour privative pour déjeuner par beau temps, cette location est avant tout bien située pour circuler en Cornouaille sans faire trop de route. Bon rapport qualité prix.


"Brilliant accommodation. A real cosy retreat"
October 2014
Like many little places in Cornwall, you just never know what lies beyond the front door. Had a wonderful stay at this cottage. It's so convenient for getting around. Very warm and cosy. Loads of nice towels. Comfortable beds. Beautiful bathroom. VERY clean. Logs were supplied, on request for the great little woodburner. The bottle of wine was a nice extra! I would highly recommend this accommodation to fellow travellers. Many thanks.


"Sehr gemütliches und super eingerichtetes Haus"
August 2014
Die einrichtung wurde mit viel Liebe zum Detail zusammengestellt und alles war sehr sauber. Sehr gerne wieder und weiter zu empfehlen.


"Wir hatten wunderschöne Flitterwochen in Sorgente"
July 2014
Das Haus war für 11 Tage unser "zu Hause" es fehlte an nichts. Alles war geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Nur das Bett war für meinen Mann zu kurz. Da es kein Fusstteil hat konnten wir es einfach auspolstern... Der Standort des Hauses ist optimal für Touren in ganz Cornwall. Vielen Dank für unser "Honeymoon".
