Kirk House is an exceptional place to stay. It is located right in the heart of the lovely village of Polperro.

After reading the last post regarding cleanliness, I was unsure what I would find, but I’m pleased to be able to say that I found the absolute opposite. The cottage was spotlessly clean.

The owner has put a great deal of thought into this accommodation, it’s an absolute textbook mix of traditional features and modern living, worthy of a magazine feature.

Kirk House is a gem in this lovely village, and I would heartily recommend a visit here. The only downside at all was having to leave!

Thank you for your lovely feedback on your recent stay in Kirk House. It is without doubt a wonderful, character filled house which is actually a converted 19th Century Chapel and I am so glad you enjoyed your holiday in beautiful Polperro. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“Needs attention and a new cleaner!”

Spent a week with family in this quirky house. On the face of it, had it's charm with ornate bits and bobs and the layout was pleasantly spacious. Water remained nice and hot throughout stay. However, considering such holiday rental properties in the past have been pleasantly clean and well functioning throughout on arrival, this was a big exception:

Dust lay on most surfaces, log burner hadn't been emptied and was full of ash, sweet wrappers in the main bedroom, ash tray full of old, soggy fag ends on the bench outside on veranda, clogged drain which flooded most of the outside courtyard which my brother ended up unblocking himself. The worst offending item was a pair of old knickers strewn on the side in the utility room! Pretty disgusting. Whilst the kitchen area was equipped well enough, the dish washer wasn't fit for purpose. Clearly hadn't been maintained for a long time as glasses in particularity came out dirtier than when they were put in! Electrics were also a little dodgy. Putting more than one light on in the living area often tripped all out. At least 2 bulbs fizzed off during the week.

Am sure this used to be the pride and joy of the owner/property manager in the past (which would explain previous reviews in 2014) however is fairly obvious that such pride is no longer in place.

Polperro is a joyful village to visit all year round and are delightful holiday rentals throughout. Is a shame to state that this has been the one exception in the years I have been down and shall make a concerted effort to source next years rental elsewhere.

“Amazing family holiday”

We have been going to Polperro for many years as a very special family holiday, Our stay at Kirk House this year was wonderful, the open plan living suited all 10 of us perfectly, It is situated in the centre of the village with lovely rooftop views down to the harbour and a private walled terrace. Very well equipped with every thing you would possibly need for a family or group of friends holiday. , I cannot say enough good things about the cottage and only hope that it doesn't get so booked up that we can't book again for next year!!!

This is a spacious house, located in the heart of Polperro. It is very well equipped and maintained, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Set quite high up, the views across Polperro are lovely. We have stayed here 3 times; on one occasion there were 10 of us and still there was plenty of space, with more than enough crockery, cutlery, etc. The house itself is very old and quirky. A fabulous place to stay in beautiful Polperro!

Thank you for your valued feedback and the fact you have stayed at Kirk House 3 times now says it all really. Just wanted to point out to anyone reading the review that Kirk is actually located down near the harbour and not in an elevated location above the village as some of our cottages are. The description in the review might lead to some confusion otherwise. Thanks again for your lovely comments.

This is our third time in Kirk House, Polperro and we had a fantastic time again. We love the house, it is really spacious, clean, comfortable and tranquil. Situated close to the harbour making it easy to access the coast. The village has a great selection of restaurants and pubs, The Blue Peter being our favourite. Great coastal walks and breathtaking scenery. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend it highly for anyone wanting a picturesque and quaint getaway.
