We really enjoyed our stay 5/5
Stayed: July 2023
Die Betten waren super und die Bettwäsche hat sehr gut gerochen. Das Gleiche mit den Hand-und Badetüchern. Alles war in ausreichender Menge vorhanden. Wir fühlten uns im Cottage willkommen, was vom Willkommenswein und Marmelade unterstrichen wurde. Es war eine tolle Zeit.
(Google translate: The beds were great and the linens smelled really good. The same with the hand and bath towels. Everything was available in sufficient quantity. We were made to feel welcome in the cottage which was underscored by the welcome wine and jam. It was a great time.)
Visit by 2 Senior Citizens 5/5
Stayed: February 2023
We felt very comfortable in this lovely cottage. It is very light and the small garden area must be a bonus in warmer weather. Penryn is a very interesting town (quite hilly) and the bus service to many places in Cornwall is excellent. There are good local pubs.
Lovely Stay 5/5
Stayed: January 2023
Very comfortable, spacious house on a quiet street with plenty of free on-street parking (much appreciated in the Penryn area). Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen with lots of light from the French doors to the garden. Nice warm central heating for the winter. Helpful hosts. Would love to stay again!
Lovely Stay 5/5
Stayed: September 2022
The property was easy to find but parking was a problem. There was a very strong smell of tcp which was obviously the cleaning product. Everything was clean and tidy and the property had everything you could need for a weeks stay. We found the property central to every where we went to visit and plenty of superstores for food supplies.
Cornish Break 5/5
Stayed: June 2021
Lovely cottage, beautiful bathroom and bedroom. Close to Falmouth and lots of attractions in the local area. We had a great two week holiday which replaced our cancelled Greek holiday… Already looking forward to another stay in Penryn.
A Few Days in Cornwall 5/5
Stayed: October 2020
Excellent location for exploring beautiful parts of Cornwall. Great property to stay in. No problems with anything. Cheers!
Perfekte Unterkunft für eine kleine Familie 5/5
Stayed July 2019
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.

(Google translate: Perfect accommodation for a small family
The little house is a good starting point to explore Cornwall. Located somewhat inconspicuously in a side street, the accommodation offers everything that a small family with up to two children needs for a pleasant stay. We really didn’t miss anything here. The landlord has made a lot of effort to provide the use of the facility with small signs and instructions. The stairs to the first floor are a bit steep, but secured on both sides by protective grilles. Overall, the house is relatively modern and bright. Although communication with the landlord was exclusively via SMS, she was very warm and helpful. We particularly liked the little touches that you can’t necessarily expect. There was a fresh bouquet of flowers on the table and a “survival ration” of spaghetti in the cupboard. All in all we felt very comfortable and would come back here at any time.)
Perfect Location 4/5
Stayed: July 2019
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.
Toller Aufenthalt in Penryn 5/5
Stayed December 2018
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.

Nice house well maintained 4/5
Stayed February 2018
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.

Very comfortable, clean, airy, attractive home 5/5
Stayed September 2016
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
Stayed May 2016
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
Stayed February 2016
Jane & Cherry, Wiltshire
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.
