“Great property, Great location”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The Shell House was the perfect spot for a lazy week on the Cornish coast - and brilliant to be able to see the harbour and sea from the window. We enjoyed a week of doing very little - however this is a great spot from which to discover many of the attractions of the area such at the Monkey Sanctuary and the many coastal walks.

The Property was perfect and would be great for friends and families as well as a couple like us. It was great to be able to feel at home being able to use the well equiped facilities to cook for ourselves when we didn't want to head out in the evening.

There were also some great places to eat and drink in Polperro and it would be easy not to leave the village for a whole week. We would recommend Michelle's for a great Sunday lunch and the Blue Peter for great beers, atmosphere and pub food - also try the noughts and crosses for something a little different.
