We had a comfortable few days here in your lovely cottage, thoughtfully stylish and the best log burner! Thank you.

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!

Many  thanks for the use of your lovely home. Great base for visiting both coasts. With traditional Cornish weather of sun, rain and wind. Would recommend as a great guest house. Many thanks.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Thank you very much for a great time away. I grew up in Truro Hill next door! I am now back with my husband for our honeymoon and it was great showing him where I grew up. The house is amazing. A great home away from home. Thank you!

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.

A very comfortable and happy stay in Sorgente, enabling us to celebrate our grandchild's first birthday. Weather mixed, but we managed to re-visit old haunts - Trelissick, Gwithian Beach, Mylor, amongst others - A lovely stay - thank you.

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 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.

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.
