It's taken a while to get around to writing this review, a whole year in fact !!. We arrived on a windy Nov 1st for a quiet and cosy weekend for two . We loved Strawbery Fields. We loved the cosy kitchen, the comfy living room with the wood burner and the ace window seat from which to watch the world go by. The Ship was handy for a Sunday carvery and the harbour and the fireworks were the perfect backdrop to get engaged in front of . If of course they hadnt cancelled the blinkin fireworks!!!. We still got engaged in polperro whilst at Strawbery Fields though as nothing was stopping that !!! :). Polperro and Strawbery fields will always be that special place for us.
We visit polperro about three times a year and have stayed at most b&bs and a few cottages in thrill age. We found this cottage via a cottage letting company and recognised where it was from the pictures as it's very different from the other cottages. I'm guessing the owners are Thai as there is a strong Thai influence inside and outside of the property.
The cottage has been nicely modernised and feels really cosy / homely and very clean. It has everything you need for a couple although there were no large plates which was a bit odd but as we eat out all the time, not really a problem. There is allocated parking just a few minutes walk away although it's a tight fit so leave your range rover at home....
Just one constructive observation for the owners, as it's a very small property, a bit of a de clutter of some of the nick knacks around the property would give it a bit more of a airy feel.
We would definitely book it again and recommend it to some friends who already booked it for the first weekend of December...
The property looks great from the exterior. And the stairs at the rear go right up to covered seating. This has fantastic views of the village. The house is themed with an oriental style and clearly quite a lot has been spent. Some lovely paintings and touches. When we have stayed in polperro before it has always been so peaceful. But in the morning there is constant thunder of deliveries and cars and voices can be clearly heard. My only other gripe is a toilet which opens into the living room, really? Also means your going down stairs for the toilet from the bedroom. Pain!
Lovely cottage in the special village of polperro. Noisy location at night due to refrigerator unit from ice cream shop opposite & very busy due to deliveries early morning. Back garden wasn't private, a couple of times people came through from side gate! Really enjoyed staying in polperro especially in eve as pubs great.
