Perfect place to visit Cornwall. We are French and visit for the first time to this part of England, wow!!
We had nice weather, the cottage is well finished and comfortable. Bravo!
I have to come back, especially during springtime in order to see all the flowers in Cornwall's gardens. Many thanks.

A lovely base to visit places I knew as a child and to introduce my daughter to her roots! The cottage is well equiped and clean and well finished inside.

We have had a great time here in Cornwall, the weather has been very good only a couple of days with a few showers. We have found this a great place for touring around Cornwall in the car or using the train. The Pandora Inn is a great place to eat as is The Royal Oak at Perrenwell. The local Gardens Enys were lovely and the bluebells such a nice sight to see. All in all a really enjoyable holiday. Thanks, Craig and Nicola (Cumbria)

The weather has been iffy (nearly got blown over at the weekend) but that hasn't stopped us having a lovely break. Sorgente has proved to be a comfortable and well-located base from which to reach the majority of the county's many attractions. We have enjoyed visiting old favourites like glendurgan and Trellisk, but were blown away by Heligan and Trebah, both of which were new to us. The Pandora on Restronguet Creek can get very busy, but it's still a lovely spot to go on a summer's evening (particularly at high tide). If you tak ethe path to the left of the pub and follow for about 15 minutes, you get to Restronguet Weir, where the creek meets the Carrick Roads.
We hope to be back and will definitely recommend this cottage to Cornwall-loving friends! Wendy and James Daud

We had a lovely week in Penryn, the weather has been mostly sunny for walks on the beaches - there's a lovely coast path that starts behind 'Just Delights' and goes along to Flushing. We would definitely recommend the falafel van near Gyllyngvase Beach in Falmouth and The Wharf tapas bar behind Just Delights. Thank you for a brilliant week! The Jackson-Hirsts :-)

had a lovely time here! Cosy, warm and very boutique-y. Lovely bedroom furniture. Chic and modern bathroom. SO CLEAN - thank you Andrena.
I highly recommend the Marine Bar in Ponsharden - excellent food and wine. If you are so inclined, a visit to St.Gluvias Church is a must. A lovely Anglo- Catholic service with a nice welcome to all. There is also a very old graveyard along the path beside the church car park - 10 minutes walk or so. We have relatives buried there from the 1950's.
I would recommend Sorgente to all for a cosy relaxing time. Hope to see you soon. The Millington Family.

Thank you, I have been down to visit family and your cottage was perfect - small, comfortable and well situated for getting to town with a pushchair and visiting grandson! Loved the rain shower. Nan Fellows.

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.

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
Jane&DenisWiltshire

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.
