What a lovely cosy clean tragedy with great amenities (although check the small print for what you will need to bring, i.e. towels). This is a great cottage & lovely part off the country to explore.

Management response:

Thank you Fee for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your break (I assume it wasn't a tragedy!). I'm sorry I missed you and didn't welcome you personally but look forward to welcoming you back in the future

A wonderful cottage that we just loved to stay in, beautifully clean when we arrived, everything that you needed for self-catering was provided for, we stayed a few times and were never disappointed, It was only Change over day changing to a Friday that stopped us returning, We miss staying in "Lucy's"

Management response:

Thank you for your review Martin. I'm sorry Friday changeover's don't work for you, we are able to be more flexible out of season though and would love to welcome you back

Lucy’s cottage is in an excellent location with the added bonus of a secure car parking space. It is well equipped but needs a new settee!! I loved my time there and not even storm Emma could ruin it!! Polperro is a gem of a place and if you’re on your own like me or as a couple Lucy’s is...

Management response:

Thank you for your review Andy, glad you finally made it back ok
