La Sorgente e' molto carino e noi siamo stati molto bene. We hope to return very soon also because our children and grand children, Penelope, Martino, Nicole and Sara are here in Penryn. Grazie per il benvenuto, a presto. Donate

Thank you. We've had a most enjoyable and comfortable stay. The cottage is very well equipped and is cosy and warm. We love Falmouth and the surrounding area - explored some more on this visit and will be down again as soon as we can! Many thanks for a great stay. Best wishes Karl, Louise, Emily and Georgie.

Have been able to relax here in comfort after busy days visiting our two year old grandson! Thank you for all your help. Viv and Rick Gaskell

Thank you, we have had a thoroughly relaxing holiday. Sorgente is a beautiful little cottage finished to a very high standard, making our trip even more enjoyable. The local area seems to be very friendly and this is an ideal location for exploring. We highly recommend Pandora Inn, lovely location and food, St Austell brewery tour, Fowey, Lands End, St.Ives, Padstow, Polperro, Mevagissey, the list goes on. Thank you for the welcome tray. Hopefully see you again. Sam and Nick (Norfolk).

Thanks for the lovely neat cottage. We had a great time and the weather was kind t o us. Love the bathroom! If anyone likes seafood, the Sea Food Bar in Falmouth was lovely and we also liked the Deli. Thanks. The Maud family.

A lovely cottage and a good base for exploring the whole area. Thank you. Edd, Ella and girls (Herefordshire).

We had such a nice stay at Sorgente Cottage! We were very lucky with the weather and could explore the rest of Cornwall. Really loved the wee herb garde! We left some mint here as an addition to the garden. It goes very well with some Pimms :-)
If you don't want to mix your own Pimms but go out and have a drink somewhere, we can warmly recommend the Tinner's Arms at Zennor, especially on a Thursday folk music night! Many thanks, Corinna and family.

We had a lovely stay, weather was great. Would come back again. Many thanks. Sorcha, Gary and James (Belfast).

Hello again. It's our third stay in Sorgente. As always we've had a lovely holiday - fab weather too! We love this cottage - very clean, light and peaceful. Comfy beds and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you once again. Sara, Dan, Ellis and Louie (Manchester)

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, well equipped cottage. Have enjoyed exploring the surrounding area, with many places to visit, there are some lovely National Trust gardens, pretty harbours and lovely beaches to visit. Thank you very much. Sue and Chris, Jean and Steve.

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage. We have had a wonderful time. Everything is very well thought out and the cottage really is a comfortable place to stay. Recommend: the beaches at Polperro, Perranporth and St.Agnes. Fantastic food at the Pandora Inn - well worth a visit. Very sorry to be leaving! Amy and Craig (Manchester).

Beautifully maintained house and was so cosy to return to after a day out. Can imagine the garden would be a sun trap but weather was pretty cold when we visited. Spent our time mostly visiting friends but managed trips to Truro, Porthleven and will go to St.Ives which is always stunning! The Andersons.

A wonderful cottage, every bit as good as it looked on the website. Tasteful, cosy and very well equipped. We were visiting my son at University and even he was tempted by the rain shower and stay over with us. If we can book again we will certainly use it again as a home from home over the next three years. We will need to see if short term lets are available.
Would recommend the following: Day trip to St.Ives, fish and chips in Porthleven, the Lizard Penninsula (We walked from Lizard Point to Kynance Cove). Flushing to Mylor along the headland, Swanpool and Gyllyngvase beaches. , coffee shop and health food shop in Penryn, both Church Coves on the Lizard and of course Falmouth and Penryn high streets.
The garden terrace is a lovely touch even in February, managed to sit out a coupe of times. The welcome pack was lovely but we are now hooked on Cornish Cream Tea. Hope to return soon. Mandy, Neil and Tobias.

It's been a real pleasure to stay in a lovely holiday cottage - so well furnished, decorated with interesting art work. Loved the wood burning fire giving warmth and interest on cold winter evenings.
Yes thank you for a lovely stay! It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into this cosy, welcoming and beautifully designed home away from home - and garden. Easy to use, practical and above all warm at this time of year!! Thank you!!

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.

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

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".
