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!!

Perfekte Unterkunft für eine kleine Familie 5/5

Aufenthalt im Juli 2019
Frank K.

Das kleine Häuschen ist ein guter Ausgangpunkt um Cornwall zu erkunden. Etwas unscheinbar in einer Seitenstraße gelegen, bietet die Unterkunft alles was es braucht für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt für eine kleine Familie mit bis zu zwei Kindern. Es hat uns hier wirklich an nichts gefehlt. Der Vermieter hat sich sehr viel Mühe gegeben die Nutzung der Einrichtung mit kleinen Hinweisschildern und Anleitungen zu versehen. Die Treppe in die erste Etwage ist etwas steil, aber beidseitig durch Schutzgitter abgesichert. Insgesamt ist das Haus relativ modern und hell eingerichtet.
Obwohl die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter ausschliesslich über SMS lief, war sie sehr herzlich und hilfreich. Besonders gut haben uns die kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten gefallen, die man nicht unbedingt erwarten kann. So stand ein frischer Blumenstrauss auf dem Tisch und eine "Überlebensration" Spaghetti im Schrank. Alles in Allem haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder hier her kommen.

Hervorragende Unterkunft mit viel Liebe zum Detail. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, waren mit 4 Erwachsenen und hatten genug Platz. Penryn ist mit seiner Lage perfekt, um Cornwall zu erkunden.

The property was easy to book and Alex made the whole process simple. Property was exactly as advertised, clean and well located. Parking can be a bit of a problem especially if you have a large car. Overall a great place to stay.

Nice house well maintained 4/5

Aufenthalt im Feb. 2018
Nicholas B.

Nice place well situated. Clean, tidy and well equipped.
Plenty of room.
Well place to walk into Penryn and about 45 minutes walk from Falmouth.
Parking was restricted but we parked directly outside the property and left the car there apart from one day when we went to the Eden project about 50 minutes drive away.
The road outside is busy and some drives seem to consider it a race track so be careful when crossing the road.
Limited pavements going up the hill so again take care if walking.
Nice log fire which was lovely when we used it for the night.
As other users have noted, a standard lamp next to the sofa for reading would benefit as it's either very bright or dim in the lounge area.
Good cooking facilities and suitably sized fridge.
The bathroom looks nice but the rain shower does tend to leave sprayed water all over the bathroom floor as there's no shower guard or curtain.
Bed is fine with plenty of storage space.

All in all a pleasant stay.

Sarah B.Chicago

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!

Sorgente - The perfect location for exploring! 5/5

Aufenthalt im Mai 2016
Richard H.

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 :)

Sorgente - A source of delight 5/5

Aufenthalt im Feb. 2016

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.

Jane & Cherry.
