Coronavirus update

WE ARE NOT TAKING BOOKINGS WHICH COMMENCE ON OR BEFORE 3rd DECEMBER 2020

CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR WEEKS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

You may book to stay after that date, however, due to future guidance we receive from local or national government and health advisers, we may have to cancel your stay. In those cases you would receive a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

If you do not believe in following all the Covid rules and restrictions, do not book this cottage.

We accept bookings only if all of the guests in the group come from one household not exceeding 4 including infants. Extra visitors or guests are not allowed under any circumstances. You must state at the time of booking how many guests there will be and their names. It will not be possible to add guests later. If you book for two guests then ONLY those two guests may enter the property.

We also ask that guests do not put themselves at risk and therefore those guests which arrive after their departure. Face masks to be worn over nose and mouth at all times outside of both your home and ours. Avoid crowded places and take home all your litter from the beach or other places of interest.

Please register for track and trace - we have our own QR code in the cottage.

We understand that booking a holiday may be a difficult decision for many due to the restrictions of cancellation policies. Please take out a suitable insurance policy before you book. We are offering all new direct bookings (effected by lockdown rules or contracting Covid-19) the flexibility to change their bookings at anytime up to one week before check-in without further charge, or a credit towards a future booking taken within 18 months of cancellation. Our agent's will have their own booking terms.

Our cottage will undergo full sanitization at the end of each stay, however we ask that guests now remove all bedding, towels, bath mats, oven gloves etc and place them in a tied sack at the end of their stay prior to departure. You no longer have to sort the recycling as our waste management company does that for you. So ALL waste now goes into the same dustbin sack, including unused hand soaps, and tied securely. This will help reduce the risk to our staff and next guests.

Thank you!

Thank you for a lovely holiday - little Seb's first. The cottage is comfy and spacious, lovely and quiet. So much to see and do, we will definitely be coming back to Cornwall. Falmouth is great for food but the cottage is also easy to work in with everything to hand.
Fabulous bath too :-)

Four fantastic days are coming to an end...
It was easy to feel comfortable here in the wonderful cottage! We really enjoyed staying in Penryn but also enjoyed the nice surroundings: coastal walk around Lizard (great views!), Maritime Museum in Falmouth and the beaches (best beach at Blue Bay Bar - good jumps from the dunes).
Thank you for having us - we will reccommend this nice place.

A wonderful cottage, beuatifully furnished. Good location for getting in and out of Falmouth.
I have had a brilliant week, went to an amazing yoga class at the local community centre. Buses ran frequently into town, saved having to take the car. A great week in sunny Falmouth.

Thank you very much for the week we have spent at Sorgente while attending 'Giving Voice' at the Penryn campus. The cottage is conveniently close to the campus, and well appointed. We would like to thank the neighbours for helping us contact someone with the code to the cottage when we arrived from Cambridge. And thanks to Andrena for everything. There is an Italian atmosphere here which makes me feel at home!
Glendurgan garden is magical.

Our first holiday as a group of friends. This is such a lovely cottage to stay at, we are considering coming again and will be recommending to others. It's so near everything that we wanted to do more! A week is definitely not enough!! Neighbours are polite, garden beautiful, atmosphere is lovely. Weather was OK throughout stay so we had plenty to do. This is a beautiful family cottage. Especially love the bathroom!! Was lovely and warm in the whole house when we arrived, we are all very pleased.

What a lovely place! Sadly, I was working while I was here, rather than on holiday. So, it was great to come back to such a modern, clean and well decorated place. I particularly like your choice of artwork! I hope to be back very soon.

What a great place to spend New Year!
Lovely cottage, and very cosy for this time of year even though the weather was mild. Great walks along the cliff tops, by the river and on the beach.
Perfect location and great for golf courses!
Would definitely come back!
Best wishes Mo and Jak

"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.

"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".

Sorgente comments 2017

"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! "

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.

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.
