“Beautiful cottage and idyllic village”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Nice clean and well equipped cottage. Everything was comfortable in the cottage - warm and cosy in fact too warm in the nicer weather and needed windows opened.
We loved the 3 Pilchards for excellent food and staff. Well worth paying in advance for car parking otherwise could be very expensive.
Lots of walks around Polperro and we hardly used the car - incredible views and friendly people along the way.

“Lovely cosy accommodation ”
Reviewed 26 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had a lovely weekend away staying at Lower Laurels. Kelvin came and introduced himself and said if there was anything we needed to just ask. The accommodation was nice and cosy on the cold November nights and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the large shower cubicle was welcoming. Myself and my husband were very happy to stay here and would recommend it for couples. I love polperro anyhow and was lovely to return after 30 years.

“Beautiful Cottage in a beautiful village.”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed for four nights back in October. The Lower Laurels is a beautiful,one bedroomed cottage in Polperro.
We had been looking to return to Polperro for a short break and after seeing that Lower Laurels was dog friendly we decided to enquire about it's availability. Owner Kelvin Foy quoted a very reasonable price and the whole booking process was handled very efficiently and friendly. The cottage was very well equipped,clean and cosy. We ate out most days as Polperro has some great pubs and restaurants. The Blue Peter being the pick of a very good bunch. Their sunday lunch is a must, as well as the fish and chips.
The cottage is conveniently situated near the quayside and close to all shops/pubs/restaurants. However, if you know the village,you'll be aware that you can't access parts of it by car. You'll have to park your car at the car park up the top and walk down, so i recommend a suitcase with wheels. Don't let this put you off though,it adds to the charm of the place.
I would thoroughly recommend Lower Laurels and the village of Polperro to everyone .

“Conveniently located in beautiful harbour village.”

We stayed for a week in Pollpero and were really pleased with the accomadation which was situated right on the harbour and a stones throw from a variety of pubs, restaurants and shops. Lower Laurels is nicely converted and was perfect for our stay. The little seating terrace was a great addition and luckily we had great weather to be able to use the proximity to the coastal path for walks with the dog. A long drive from Yorkshire but worth it.

“Simply Stunning”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We are regular visitors to Polperro and for this years annual pilgrimage we decided to rent Lower Laurels for our parents who are both pensioners. This property was ideal for the purpose because of its central location and the practical layout of accommodation. Ideal for two individuals, the property is basically the lower ground floor of a bigger property, having its own entrance from the approach. The Lower Laurels consists of a beautiful Lounge/diner which is sympathetically renovated to a high standard and is well equipped for a holiday stay. The bedroom is situated just off the main living area and contains a lovely double bed and build-in wardrobe. Again the sleeping area is tastefully decorated to a high standard and in keeping with the original character of the property. The property also benefits from a nice size en-suite shower room.

A few minor points for consideration: As this property is the ground floor of a bigger property, some "communal noise" can be heard and should be expected from the accommodation above.
Although all the living quarters are situated on the same level, the property does have a few small steps on the approach.
The property does not offer any local parking.
