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.

Thank you for such a clean place to stay. We recommend to future guests - The Wharf in Penryn for great value tapas, big portions. The Muddy Beach is also lovely. We dodged every weather and had a great holiday.

Sorgente is a lovely little house and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We explored a lot of Cornwall from here and found it a great base. The Thirsty Scholar in Penryn main street, gave us a cosy place to eat and drink.
Thank you for the lovely Cream Tea greeting us and the red wine - both very welcome on our first day and evening!
Linda and Malcolm. Canberra, Australia.

Dear Rowboham family, We loved your cottage, a lovely and clean place which provides everything one needs!
A place to recommend! Thank you for the welcome after a long journey - the flowers, scones, bottle of wine, clotted cream, marmalade and milk! It made us feel very welcome and at home!
Thank you, Reutes family, Neuss, Germany.

Dear Alex, 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.
Natasha.

Sorgente has provided us with the perfect base for exploring whilst holidaying here in Cornwall. Beautifully decorated with everything we have needed for a comfortable stay. Some of the places we have visited and would recommend are:
St.Michaels Mount - dinner at the Godolphin opposite offers great views of the mount.
Take the train from St.Erth to Carbis Bay - beautiful beach with beach club - lovely seafood pizza.
Lands End - great if you want a keepsake photo.
Maritime Museum Falmouth - brilliant for both our children at 2 and 12 yrs. Park and Float is novel too. Thank you.
Ali, Mark, Tom and Ivy.


19/08/2016
A fantastic place to stay! We have had a wonderful holiday with some beautiful weather. Would definitely recommend visiting the castle at Pendennis. Falmouth beach is lovely and our toddler loved the seal sanctuary in Gweek. We would definitely stay again.
Emma, Nick and Lucas.


02/09/2016
What a beautiful cottage to stay in. We have had a fantastic holiday. A must visit is Gylly Beach, Falmouth, Carbis Bay and Truro. Too many amazing places to visit all less than an hours drive away. We would definitely recommend and visit again. Thank you.
Karen, Andy, Jessica and Georgia.

A wonderful and relaxing place to stay!
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. Gilbert, Spohie and Julie (Belgium)

Most definitely highly recommended
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 - Very comfortable, clean, airy, attractive home
This is a very well cared for property; everything is in perfect condition - it's like staying in a show home.
The waxy wooden floors feel wonderful beneath your feet, the rain shower is lovely and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the living room is warm and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay and felt at home.
Thank you Alex!

Pleased it was allergy free
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.

Sorgente - A source of delight
My sister and I needed somewhere in Penryn to stay for a week whilst sorting out family matters. So, we had not come for sea, sun and sand, but more looking for a comfortable refuge to retreat to at the end of the day. Sorgente couldn't have been better at providing this; in spadefuls.

It is the most delightful and tastefully renovated cottage. It retains old world charm with modern day comforts.

The cottage was well equipped and everything, including all the linens and towels, were of a very high standard. Both bedrooms are spacious and we had plenty of room to hang clothes, with plenty of drawer spaces too.

It also has a superb bathroom with all modern/new fittings. The vast overhead shower was divine. Also all the little goodies which included soaps and bath gels.

Of an evening it was very cosy. We didn't light the wood burner, but can imagine that would be great on a really dismal wet and windy day. We only used the CD player, but you could bring your iPod, DVDs as well and of course there is a TV. The free WiFi was a real bonus and made it very easy for us to carry out research and find local services.

The communications and ease of booking and all the information provided by the owner was also top notch. The online description of the cottage is perfectly correct and the photography is truly representative of the accommodation.

As we were not on a holiday we didn't visit local attractions - but of course one absolute must, if you enjoy good food, is a visit to Ricky Stein's restaurant and take away near the Maritime Museum in Falmouth. The most sumptious dinner was greatly enjoyed and appreciated.

We can highly recommend this cottage.

Sorgente - The perfect location for exploring!

My wife, baby and I found the property whilst looking for a family holiday in Cornwall to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

We were automatically drawn to it by the immaculate pictures and fantastic location! When we arrived we were not let down!

We had a long drive down through rain and wind (with a 17 month year old in tow it is not easy!) but as soon as we opened the door it felt like home.

Penryn is the perfect location for exploring the beautiful Cornish countryside. Everyday after breakfast we packed the car and headed out to explore! We were even lucky enough to have sunshine the whole week. We went from Falmouth to Penzance to St Ives and so much more! All these trips were a maximum 30-40mins drive away! Our favorite place to visit was the stunning Kynance Cove... a must visit if you can!

We only had to contact the housekeeper Andrena once and she answered the call quickly and fixed our problems straight away.

I could not recommend staying at Sorgente enough, not just for the quality of the house but also for the perfect location in Cornwall!

We will be returning very soon!

Thank you again for a memorable stay!

Richard, Michelle and Olive :)

Thank you for your wonderful cottage - taking back some of your ideas for our house. Perfectly sited and always a pleasure to return to after a busy day, The Muddy Beach provided us with excellent meals. If we return to Cornwall we will visit here again, The Welcome Pack, was very welcome after a long journey!

A huge thank you for letting us enjoy your lovely cottage. We shall recommend this cottage to all (from young to old), as it caters for comfort, lovely surroundings and amazing beaches. Our stay was peaceful and funful. Looking forward to coming back again.

28/07/2017
Thank you very much for a lovely holiday in your charmingly renovated cottage. The purpose of our visit to Cornwall was to attend a family wedding at Pendennis Castle. It was a beautiful meaningful ceremony which included a 2 gun salute to the happy couple. The reception at the Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth was superb. We would certainly recommend this hotel for a special dinner. Sunday brunch at Muddy Beach was great fun, followed by a ride in the Water Taxi to Falmouth. Kids would love this! A day going to St.Ives and another to St.Michael's Mount were also memorable! We will recommend Sorgente highly.

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!
Tabea, Andrea and David

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.
Nick, Emily, Meg and Rich

When we entered the house after our 'bother with the keys', we knew at once that we would like living here. How much love, experience, money and great taste has gone into the refurbishing of this old house? We enjoyed our stay in Sorgente very much!

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.

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. The cottage had a good location but if you want to explore outside of Penryn and Falmouth a car will be very useful. 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 time exploring Cornwall and Sorgente was the perfect location to start from.
We've been to Lizard Point, St.Michaels Mount and the Minack Theatre, we had a nice walk at the Lost Gardens of Heligan and enjoyed the beautiful St.Ives.
The house was big enough for the four of us and the sofas were cosy.
Now we're off to explore the Exmoor region and will have some time in London before taking the ferry home.

- Porthcurno to Lands End to Sennen Cove
- St.Ives to Lennor

Lovely comfy cottage - thank you for the welcome gifts, much appreciated. Had some lovely days out, Fowey, St.Mawes were two of the best. Great local walks - Penryn to Falmouth via Flushing a good local one. Also walk near Pandora Inn (well worth a visit). Plenty of things to enjoy around the area. Good local fish and chips and Indian takeaway.

Phil, Caroline and Jack (Warwickshire)
A well equipped and nicely furnished cottage. Even comfy beds :-) We spent about 50% of our time locally in Penryn, Falmouth and Truro. The other time we did some nice day trips:
- walking round the Lizard Coastline (spectacular!)
- St.Michaels Mount and Mousehole (very picturesque)
- St.Ives (busy but lovely)
Eating locally, Sunday lunch was good at the Working Boat pub overlooking Falmouth harbour. The Norway Inn (5 miles by car) was also excellent. In Penryn we supported the fish & chip shop and Indian takeaway!

We stayed in this adorable Air B&B in April...beautifully decorated two bedroom cottage. At first I found all the little instruction card everywhere a bit odd but decided I really appreciated the attention to detail and when I couldn't figure out a piece of machinery in the house the little card came to the rescue. The house rules were very common sense and I would definitely stay again if back in Cornwall.

We have had a very pleasant stay here at Sorgente. It was an ideal base for touring around the area and we have packed quite a few places into our short stay. The cottage was homely and had everything we needed except reading lamps, which would have been a welcome addition for evenings in front of the fab log fire !! Thanks for the welcome pack too!

Comment: We had a great holiday but I will stick to the cottage and its location. This cottage is an example of extremely careful design, planning and thoughtfulness. All the facilities were well finished and of very high quality. The combination of helpful notes and a most professional handbook about the cottage and its facilities makes everything easy to use to best advantage. Penryn is very well placed for access to Falmouth and its excellent restaurants as well as being within easy reach of several National Trust properties. Cream tea and Red Wine awaited our arrival and this was a nice touch though we were so delighted with the house we almost forgot them.

Comment: Penryn is a perfect place to stay. Great access to West Cornwall, with quiet village feel. Lovely that Alex has created such an attractive home in Penryn. We are very sad to have to leave. Definitely a longer stay next time.
Suggestions: Muddy Beach cafe is only 1/2 mile walk and good coffee, food, view. Artisan shops nearby are excellent. Marinas Fish & Chips, Star & Garter in Falmouth for view, and fabulous food.
Tate Gallery & Barbara Hepworth in St.Ives (fab beaches as well). Fish (cod!) from Penryn fishmonger - cook in Sorgente's well equipped kitchen. Cheers.

Comment: Beautiful little cottage with everything that was needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. On street parking was not a problem at all during our time at the cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and am happy to recommend Sorgente.
The cottage is self catering with no service/staff - however, the owner sent emails and texts regarding the cottage, keys etc which was very helpful and reassuring.
Tips for other travelers: Ate out at The Boathouse (Falmouth), great food and views, also the Hooked on the Rocks at Swanpool, more expensive and again great food - needed to book as both very popular and Covid restrictions. Fab boat trip (self hire) for fishing (Falmouth) and Kayaking with Paddle Cornwall (Mark) - kayaking booked in advance and even as a novice it was great fun following the coastline observing sea birds and common seals.

Comment: Lovely clean and modern accommodation. We really appreciated the thoughtful touches - milk in the fridge, tea and coffee, fresh flowers, wine and ingredients for a cream tea.
Also appreciated the clear instructions on how everything worked, such as the rainfall shower.
Alex and Sabrina were very helpful and always quick to respond to any queries. Would highly recommend.
Tips for other travellers: Pandora Inn is lovely and very close. Muddy Beach cafe is good for breakfast and only a short walk away. The walk to Flushing along the river was beautiful. We did it on a Sunday and had the best Sunday lunch at the Waterside restaurant which is on the jetty - very generous portions and delicious.

Comment: We've had a good week in Cornwall with lovely warm weather. The cottage is well appointed and comfortable. Had good days in Eden Project (with Tesco vouchers), Trebah, touring the Lizard and our favourite thing - the ferry trip to St.Mawes. Went to East Pool Mine which was interesting. Many thanks.

Comment: This was our second visit to Sorgente, and we have already booked the next one. They are very good to deal with, and the COVID precautions are most reassuring. On both of our stays we have had everything that we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
Tips for other travelers: If you like oriental cuisine, Bango Kitchen on Commercial Road create some excellent dishes. They have a very tempting menu including sushi, ramen, katsu curries, etc, including a very good vegan section. On this visit it was take-away only, but hopefully the restaurant will be open again soon for dining inside. Well worth a visit.

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.

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.

Lovely cosy stay, spacious for a couple

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!

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"

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.

"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.

"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".
